Why Lesson Planet?
Activate sensory writing with this activity. First, learners read a passage called "Up to Grandmother's Attic," which is full of sensory details. After identifying the descriptive words in the passage, novice writers think of a setting for a new story, picture it in their mind, and then fill in their ideas on the chart provided. The final goal is to compose a description of their imagined setting. This resource could be used at the beginning of a creative writing or narrative writing unit.<
