FREE! Creative Writing (Ridiculous Obituary)
This free resource is intended to help your students write detailed and meaningful sentences.
Basic Writing Project
Students are to write a unique obituary about an object, animal, or whatever.
Ridiculous Obituary Example…
Mr. Green, 15 months old, died Monday as a result of the dreaded DO Disease (otherwise known as “Dry Out” Disease). Mr. Green was found in the bottom of a student desk with his cap off. The desk was terribly messy. Mr. Green’s cap must have been off for several days, causing him to suffer a slow and terrible drying out death.
Mr. Green enjoyed being used for coloring projects for kids, but he especially enjoyed just hanging out with his friends (Mr. Red, Mrs. Pink, Mr. Orange, Mr. Brown, and Mrs. Blue).
Mr. Green is survived by his cousin (Mrs. Whiteboard Marker), his wife (Mrs. Green), and a daughter (Pinkie Crayon). Mr. Green will be missed by all colors. Funeral services will take place at the Crayola Funeral Home.
Included in this bundle is:
