Use this 2-page handout to introduce descriptive writing and figures of speech, such as imagery, similes, metaphors, and personification, to your students in a fun, hands-on way! In class, students describe two very different objects that are given to them by the teacher. For example, I used popcorn for the first object and a marshmallow for the second object. Then, students write a paragraph about one of those objects. Finally, for homework, students describe one object found at home.
