Product Description
Teach students all about the Descriptive Nonfiction Text Structure with this super engaging “Doodle and Do” resource. First, students will DOODLE as they complete sketch notes on the descriptive text structure. Then, they’ll DO 6 reading and writing activities to help them showcase their understanding of the expository text structure. Each activity is designed to be fun! This resource will take at least 3 days to complete.

Great News! This resource is a part of the Nonfiction Text Structures Mini-Unit Bundle! The bundle includes Doodle and Do mini-units for each Nonfiction Text Structure: Problem and Solution, Compare and Contrast, Cause and Effect, Description, and Chronological Order.


About the “Doodle” Notes:

Students will develop an understanding of the Descriptive Nonfiction Text Structure first by completing a set of doodle notes. Doodle notes are color-it-in, fill-it-in, and doodle-encouraging note sheets. They’re not only visually engaging, they’re also effective in helping students increase their focus and ability to recall information. Plus…they’re really fun! In this resource, there are 2 options of Doodle Notes:

• Option 1: All the notes are filled in. With this option students will color, embellish, and add doodles to the notes as you review the information with the class.

• Option 2: Some of the notes are filled in and students need to fill in the remainder of the notes (like guided notes). Students will work to fill in the notes as you teach the content.


About the “Do” Activities

After students complete their Doodle Notes it’s time for them to “Do” some fun activities. The activities are designed around lessons to help students deepen their understanding of the Descriptive Nonfiction Text Structure. There are six activities in all:

• Doodle and Describe: Students carry the doodle concept into the first activity when they doodle their favorite and least favorite things and then add labels to describe their sketches.

• Guess What? Activity: Students read descriptions about people, places and things and then guess what is being described.

• Reading with our Senses: Students read a passage and then identify the sensory details that are provided in the passage.

• Descriptive Text Structure Reading 1: Students read a passage using the descriptive text structure and then complete questions based on their reading.

• Descriptive Text Structure Reading 2: Students read a passage using the descriptive text structure and then complete a graphic organizer.

• Descriptive Text Structure Writing: Students write a descriptive passage about their favorite place. First, they complete a brainstorm. Then, they write a passage using the text structure.
