In this activity, students learn how to use imagery to make richer descriptions and make their writing more interesting. This is a great lesson to use before a poetry unit. You can simply have the students complete the activity or make it more interactive by making a list of scenes and putting them on separate strips of paper. You could also have each student submit a scene for the activity. Then, have each student pull a strip of paper from a bowl and their challenge is to write about that scene using the same format of this activity. To make it even more exciting, ask the students not to mention where the scene is in their writing but think of the sensory descriptions as clues. At the end of the activity, have volunteers read their paragraphs aloud and the other students can guess what the scene is! The length of time this activity takes varies on how you use it. It is a great lesson to be used repeatedly in various ways until the concept is solidified for the student.
