PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great activity to let your students' creativity show! Start by showing the students the book The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg. Read the beginning jacket cover about how the solution to the pictures lies in our imagination.

I then assigned each student a picture and told them that they needed to write a story about the picture. This is where you get to really let their imagination shine.

This activity includes:
*story map (to get the ball rolling)
*rough draft writing paper
*good copy writing paper
*scoring rubric (to use at your discretion)
