In preparation for our 100 Museum, we practiced descriptive writing this week. The students got into teams. Each team got a brown bag with an object in it. Their task was to describe the object using good descriptive words and NO color words. The teams loved peeking in the bag and thinking up fun words and uses for the objects. They came up with some very clever ideas. The students returned the bags to me and I placed all the objects at the front of the room. Each team came up and read their descriptions. The other teams tried to guess which object the team had written about. They loved it. Luckily I had a few extra objects to keep the suspense up until everyone had a turn. I did do some modeling before hand with their help.
