Symbolism - Descriptive Writing using Digital Pictures

Ninth graders view digital pictures of an ancient farm house including inside rooms of antique furniture, a giant hornet's est, and an unmade bed with a pull up bar for an invalid. Students brainstorm descriptive terms they could use to describe the setting. Students independently create and describe a character who lives on the property and develop a story based on this location.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
