Creative Writing: Activity Ideas for Observation and Description, Grades 3 and 4.
Chase, Cheryl M.
This booklet is one of a series developed by the Northern Colorado Educational Board of Cooperative Services to make available to teachers ideas designed and tested by other teachers. Many of the ideas are from educational journals as well as from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). The booklet contains sixteen activities involving creative writing, directly or indirectly, and the purposes of each of these are explained. Some of the objectives of the activities are: to use all the senses in making observations, to encourage verbal expression, to become aware of the five senses and of the words that effectively describe them, to become aware of details necessary for effective description, to observe and describe accurately, to observe and draw a picture using words, to make inferences, and to write simple rhymes.
