Your students will love reading, writing, and talking about the salivating dishes we eat at Thanksgiving. This activity focuses on using detailed imagery to help students practice identifying, understanding, analyzing, and creating sensory language; use this product as a guided activity OR as an interactive game as you help your students become stronger readers and writers! Either option can be made into a competition or collaboration as students determine what noun is being described in each passage; the writing is crafted to keep the middle-school age group focused and engaged as they master these skills.
TWO OPTIONS to help your students master this skill and provide you with a quick grade!
1) Use Pages 2–5 as a ready-to-go guided worksheet activity
2) Use Pages 6–15 to get your students on their feet and moving around your classroom!
BOTH versions provide endless opportunities for extended lessons and purposeful discussions about close reading, descriptive adjectives, sensory language, and creative writing.
