PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Save money when you purchase our seasonal bundle of activities including The Thanksgiving Turkey Disguise, The Great Pumpkin Exchange, The Gingerbread Bake-Off, & The Super Snowman Switch! http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Writing-Directions-BUNDLE-Pumpkin-Exchange-Turkey-Gingerbread-Snowman-Switch-971649

*With this activity, students will learn to write a set of directions. Students will decorate a blank pumpkin and write a set of directions. The set of directions will be given to a classmate to see if they can reproduce the pumpkin on another blank pumpkin. Students will evaluate their peers on their ability to write a clear set of directions. Included in this file are: blank pumpkin templates, materials & directions form, and peer evaluation surveys. This is a great writing activity for the upcoming fall season.

*Our students have completed these exchanges throughout the school year (Gingerbread Man Exchange, Snowman Exchange, etc.) Our students have enjoyed these exchanges and their ability to write a set of directions has greatly improved! We have also used these exchanges for hall displays.

*Another great tip is to pair with another classroom to complete this activity. The kids love it! Check out our other products!
