20 printable lessons to help students improve their analysis and descriptive writing using prepositional phrases. Each lesson centers around a photo that I took on a local trail: a mouse peeking out from among cacti, flowers hoping for the morning’s dew to evaporate, cactus bugs hiding on a cactus, a squirrel searching for food, butterflies drinking nectar, a lizard wondering what I’m doing so close, a spider hiding on a tuft of grass, a big black fly and a feather and bees and berries and gnarly trees and veined leaves and more. All of my photos are cropped and magnified, sure to catch and hold your students’ interest. As your students explore dozens of prepositions in this packet, they will gain a very close look at some of the smaller inhabitants of our planet.
