These activities promote descriptive language skills, social interaction with questioning and answers between peers, and expanding sentence structure. It works bottom up to provide the detailed clues where students generate the answer, as well as top down where the item is given and the student describes it with details. The contents include:

-Clue cards with matching answer cards
-Describes six items (referee, coach, player, court, uniform, basketball hoop) using the descriptions of parts, function, and location. A visual picture choice board is provided if needed for answer choices.
-A poster to remind students of each category of clues (parts, function, location).
-Descriptive Writing Sentence Builder
Each page has three sentences with supporting structure. There is also a word bank with three choices grouped by descriptive label. Each sentence uses all three labels taught within the descriptive set.

-Student direction page for independent centers (step-by-step pictures and words)
-Compare & Contrast template: Students will choose two items to describe on the chart (using parts, function, location). Then compares/contrasts on the Venn diagram.
