I assign this activity to my students before Spring Break begins. The activity asks students to write a journal entry about their Spring Break on the front of an index card, (Using "Show, Don't Tell" details). On the front of the index card, students may glue an actual picture they took over Spring Break, paste a brochure of a place they visit, or draw one, but the picture must relate to the journal entry on the back.
*This is a great back-to-school from Spring Break sharing activity that includes creative writing! My students really enjoy looking at each others postcards!
