I created this lesson for 2nd graders after studying nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
First, make the snow globes by drawing a winter scene on the blue circle with crayon; and then adding
snowflakes with white paint.
Afterwards, we used this sentence-growing activity, in which students easily wrote complex
and interesting sentences.
Have students start with a noun and then add an appropriate verb.
Keep adding adjectives to describe the noun and adverbs to describe the verb, and
finally add phrases to tell where and when.
