yes your first paragraph is the introduction, you tell would say what you are going to be writing about in your essay, and give an example of each paragraph that you will be writing about, then depeneding on how many paragraphs you have to write (most of the time its five all together) the 2nd 3rd, and 4th (the body) will each describe one specific point of one of the three examples that you said in your intro. and in your 5th paragraph which will be the conclusion, you will basically restate your intro. and put it in different words but mainly saying the same thing.
