Product Description
In this activity, you will introduce students to sensory details with the provided PowerPoint. Students will then practice using their sensory details to write a descriptive journal about visiting Okonkwo’s village in Things Fall Apart. Students will explore an aspect of Ibo society as if they are an anthropologist studying the Ibo. This product contains a 26-slide PowerPoint that introduces sensory details and an assignment sheet with the requirements for the travel journal. This is a good lesson for teachers who do not feel comfortable teaching sensory details, as it is basically “Sensory Details 101.” I use this lesson with my 10 Honors class. If you have more advanced writers, this may not be a helpful lesson for your students.

This assignment is great to use after students read Part I of Things Fall Apart.

Print, copy, & go!
