Descriptive Writing – Creative Writing Tool: Using Your 5 Senses

PDF (4 MB|8 pages)


This mini lesson is intended to help children enhance their creative writing by describing through the five senses. By taking the time to think about how something might feel, taste, smell, look, or sound, children can move from stating what an object is to describing its attributes and therefore making it easier for readers to visualize the object.

Included in this packet:
• Title page
• Instructional page (that gives ideas for a hands-on activity)
• Guided practice worksheet (that is designed for children to collaborate together)
• Independent practice worksheet
• Answer key (that gives possible answers for the worksheets)

Happy Writing!
