This creative writing project is based on the beautifully written book "The Wonderful Happens" by Cynthia Rylant. Following the format of the book, students write about and then illustrate their own "wonderful". This is also an excellent cross-grade project. The older students guide and then write the younger students' thoughts down on the blackline master provided, and then the younger students illustrate. Samples are included to help students understand the writing format.
