Treat your class with this M&M Task Card Activity. Students explore creative writing elements such as repetition, metaphor and exclamation marks by choosing an M&M out of a tub and completing a task depending on the colour.
A full power point is included and printable task cards. Teachers can stick with the prescribed task of describing a zombie attack or adapt the creative writing task to their class as appropriate. Just add tubs of M&Ms and this lesson is ready to go. Unsurprisingly the students love the little chocolate reward that follows every correct sentence they write!
