This is a back to school writing activity with a twist! Students are provided information to help them with their writing. The idea is to encourage students to be as creative and descriptive as possible. The paragraphs created DO NOT have to be real. In some cases, the student may need to pretend and imagine a scenario in order to complete their writing. Additionally, some of the items mentioned, like kayak for example, may need some explanation.
Extension activity: Once students have finished their initial paragraph, have students pass it to another student and continue to add on to the story. These can be a silly or serious.
For extended use, it is suggested that the cards be laminated.
