Today, we did a really fun lesson for descriptive writing. Each student was given a rock and were instructed to choose materials that were laid out on their table for their pet. Once they picked out their supplies, they told my assistant where to hot glue that chosen items. They were not given any instructions other than just to make a pet. After they made their "rock pets", they had to write a descriptive paragraph explaining about their pet. They were to tell what kind of pet, characteristics about it, where it lives, what it eats, how to take care of it, etc.... They had fun with the activity and I thought their rocks turned out SUPER cute.
