|This creative activity gets kids thinking and writing descriptively!
Choose a relatively simple sentence to write on the board and have students copy the sentence onto their own sheets of paper.

along the street” might become “The careless girl walked along the busy street” or “The little girl
walked along the long, quiet street.”) Call on volunteers to share their revised sentences aloud, or have them draw
pictures to go with their sentences. Then compare them to see what a difference a few descriptive words can make!
