"Snapshot" Exercises & Sensory Detail Word Bank

This "Snapshot" Exercises & Sensory Detail Word Bank lesson plan also includes:

Read a sample of creative descriptive writing to your science class. Discuss how writing can be used to record and communicate observations that scientists make. Reading selections and thought-provoking questions are suggested. Also included are a sensory observation sheet for elementary learners and a sensory detail word bank for middle and high schoolers. Take your class outdoors to practice writing, or give them interesting objects to describe. This is a terrific exercise in encouraging junior scientists to pay attention to detail.
