This is a great project for an end-of-the-year or review unit in Language Arts. Detailed rubric for students to know what is expected, brainstorming page, and grading rubrics are included in this packet, as well as much more. Students are required to write sentences with different starting words and include metaphors and similes in their writing. It is such a good challenge or extension for your little writers! and it is so fun to see their creative sides come out. My students loved this project as we found pictures of our "fake family members" from magazines and put our typed descriptions together with the pictures into a bound book. Great project and fun for the students. It allows them to express their creativity!
*UPDATED MARCH 2018* - Includes additional rubrics, planning sheets, templates for final products, and an example album that you can use to show your students.
