This no prep winter writing activity has students secretly create their own snowman and write a matching description of their snowman. Then, all of the students' snowmen are placed on display while students read their descriptions. If they use enough good details, the class should be able to figure out which snowman was theirs, just based on the description!

This fun snowman activity includes:

  • a descriptive writing mini lesson - students analyze the provided paragraphs using a rubric, thinking about how well the author added descriptive details and organized the paragraph
  • scaffolded pages to help students go through the entire writing process as they write their descriptive essay - includes brainstorming, rough draft, revising and editing, and final draft pages
  • a grading rubric to help you assess student writing

This is a fun descriptive writing lesson for Christmas or for winter for 3rd and 4th grade students.
