Use these task cards to practice adding a variety of specific details in writing with elaboration. This activity, perfect for a center rotation in your writing workshop or a whole class lesson, is great prewriting for an essay about Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, or for the Letters to the Front or Patriot's Pen writing contest.
Each task card provides a veteran-themed topic sentence. Students must write in three details that could be used in a paragraph with that topic sentence.
Instructions include these types of details:
• Sensory language (imagery)
• Facts & figures
• Figurative language
