Students love to imagine what they will be doing when they grow up. They will really get into this Crystal Ball writing project, where they imagine what their lives will be like in 25 years.
You will receive a project planner, with prompts for students to answer about various parts of their life; career, home, family, pets, interests and hobbies. The completed planner is then used to write a rough draft on the enclosed template.
Finally, after editing using the editing checklist, students write their final copy onto crystal ball-shaped paper. Students add an illustration on another crystal ball, and the two are cut out and displayed on large 12x18 construction paper.
This writing project is a favorite of my students every year. It is the writing sample that they share with their family each year during our student-led conferences. Parents love them too, and they will definitely have a spot at home in the special memories box.
Thanks for checking out my product! Please let me know if you have any questions.
