Simile writing and onomatopoeia writing is easy with this Thanksgiving writing and craft! Teach students to use similes as part of this descriptive writing resource. This lesson can be taught in one day or stretched out throughout five days. Students generate lists of adjectives to describe Thanksgiving dinner with their families, turn the adjectives into similes to describe how their dinner tastes, smells, feels, sounds and what it looks like. They then use the lists to create similes about their dinner, which is then turned into a flip-book like craft for you to either hang up in the hallway or send home.
