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 caterpillar crawling across a flower, a bumble bee searching for nectar, a roly-poly curled into a ball, a lizard wondering why I am so close, a discarded feather next to a leaf, a blue and white bird in a tree, a slug slithering up a leaf, ants rushing in and out of their hole, a butterfly, a curly leaf, a hungry bird, a resting fly, a deeply-veined leaf, flowers, trees and much 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.
