In this activity, students compare two pieces of writing and determine which one provides the best description. This can be used for a full lesson involving listening if students are asked to read the passages aloud to each other and draw what they hear described. A descriptive essay based on the passages is an extension activity. This can be used with middle school level students as well as adult ESL students level high intermediate NRS and higher.
Note: The worksheet only will take about 20 minutes. The full lesson including drawing and writing can take up to 55 minutes or 1 hour.
