This is a fun creative way to incorporate descriptive writing with friendly letter writing. The students are asked to pretend they are an alien from another planet asked to visit Earth and bring back objects they could use on their own planet. The packet includes a letter from their captain describing their mission, an activity that incorporates juicy words, an activity where they choose an object, name it and describe it, a graphic organizer to help them plan their writing and a letter template for them to write their response letter. It also includes a detailed lesson plan describing what to do for each activity and the timeline. This takes 3-4 days to complete all the tasks.
