This is a creative descriptive writing assignment. You can use this in conjunction with the Ancient Olmec unit (coming soon) or on its own. The prompt, instructions, grading rubric, and partner worksheet are all included here. This writing assignment is recommended for grades 6th-9th.

The purpose of this assignment is to introduce students to aspects of Olmec religion - specifically their deities. Students will draw an illustration of a deity they have created and then write a detailed descriptive essay describing this deity. Once their essay is published, there is a fun challenge where they exchange essays with a partner and try to draw their partner's deity based on the descriptions in the essay.
