What's in the Bag?

Scholars prove their knowledge of adjectives with a instructional activity that challenges them to examine objects and list their attributes according to the five senses. Small groups pass around several bags that hide a mystery object while they list adjectives on a graphic organizer. A whole-class discussion reviews adjectives. Early finishers work on a practice page.
