    We have a lesson in our third grade guide using Charlotte's Web. I think it was on vivid imagery. There is a part in the book, I believe it describes the inside of the barn.
    What I did was read the part of the barn to the students. I informed them that they were going to close their eyes and picture the barn in their heads. I read the part aloud a few times and then had the students draw a picture of the barn from what they heard. (I also displayed the part on an overhead for the students to review or reread).
    After they had completed their pictures, we came back together and discussed how they knew what to draw in their pictures. We also made a list of descriptive words.

    Hope this helps. This is just one thing to do with the book.
