This activity handout will work with your students' abilities to write descriptive and interesting phrases regarding their sensory details.
Each of your senses contributes to create every experience of your life. Oftentimes, sensory memories are the strongest ones we have—a smell can be a very powerful trigger of a particular time in our lives, and hearing a song from the past can take you back to a key moment that you associate with the song. When this is considered, it becomes clear that good writing should include description to appeal of all of our senses.
For this exercise, list the details that would be registered by each of your senses in the following situations. Try to be as detailed and thorough as you can.
