Let's Go Exploring!

Use a Courbet painting of a cave or tunnel opening to reinforce the importance of descriptive writing. Writers of all ages use sensory details to describe what the scene depicts as they pretend to be in the painting. Then they imagine going into Courbet's cave. Afterward, they use sensory language to write about and illustrate a place that is special to them, just as this space was special to Courbet.
