This is a writing "field trip" you can do with your class. Students collect sensory detail by visiting two location settings of your choice. Without talking to others, students take the time to quietly observe all that is around them and record these details. Students are always amazed themselves the details they can generate when they immerse themselves in a place and truly observe their surroundings. After this assignment is complete a complementary follow-up task is to have students write a descriptive paragraph about each of the locations they visited.
