This product was created to help students more accurately express themselves when they are giving directions. Specifically, this activity has been used in my science classroom to introduce the importance of description in procedural writing. The word banks were added directly to the worksheets so that students would have access to transitional and descriptive words as they write. The activity itself is the same for both versions.
Version 1: Position Words
This word bank is a simple list (tier 1,2) of descriptive words.
Version 2: Spatial Pattern Words
This word bank has some of the same words as version 1 but also includes a list of higher vocabulary words (tier 3). Some review of the words may be needed before students begin writing.
Additional Materials Needed: bags of legos
