PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will use pictures from Chris Van Allsburg's book, "The Mysteries of Harris Burdick," as inspiration for a descriptive writing piece.

Students will first choose from EIGHT of the pictures from Van Allsburg's book, followed by students filling out the graphic organizers to help them develop their story to go along with the mysterious picture.

PLEASE NOTE...Not all illustrations are included. Please purchase and use the book within your class in conjunction with this project packet!

Four organizers, pictures, and the actual prompt are included to help your kids begin writing their story.

I have done this activity for a few years, and my kids have always had a blast.

Thanks for looking!
