Students can be antsy just before Thanksgiving. Take advantage of their focus on the holiday and combine it with something new. Let them write (and discuss) Thanksgiving with a new kind of writing prompt, a collection of 5 works of art all Thanksgiving-themed. Students use the art as writing prompts. I call it creARTive writing.
The assignment will take 40 minutes per image. (So this is 5 classes worth of material). Of course, you can always scale down if you want it to be a shorter assignment. There is a one-page version included to make that easy.
Included in this product:
1. 5 images
2. Detailed teacher instructions
3. Conversation guides for each image
4. Pre-writing assignment: guiding questions for students
5. Writing prompt printables for each image
6. Common Core linked
