Looking for a fun holiday themed writing activity? Students will first design their own gingerbread house. Then, they will complete a descriptive writing piece explaining what their house and yard look like. Next, they will swap descriptions with a classmate and attempt to draw their classmate's gingerbread house based on the description alone. Finally, they will peer conference and compare each writer's drawing to the reader's drawing. This will allow them to complete a self-assessment about their original piece.
