Students love doing Mad Libs! It is so fun to add words and create funny stories as a class or with just each other. I've had students ask me if they could write their own Mad Lib and share it with the class. With experience, I know that students need a framework for this activity, so I came up with this lesson and tested it with 4th and 5th graders. It was a good review of the parts of speech and a good writing assignment. This lesson will give you step by step directions for having students create their own Mad Lib and also give examples of each step in the process. Using the student written Mad Libs makes for a good reward or for a sponge activity when there are those few minutes of spare time during the day.
