Looking for something to help your students practice descriptive writing? This investigation style study helps your students look at each sense one at a time to devise a list of descriptive qualities. Pick three items to use for each sense and let them loose to generate their own descriptive list!
Looking for ways to make this activity fun? Play sounds for the sound items. Or put some mystery items into a bag for them to reach in and feel (without seeing). Get a few smelly items to pass around. And bring in some snacks for the taste items! It is a great hands on activity for Writer's Workshop, focusing in on descriptive details.
