    Fun Writing
    By Cindy

    For a descritptive writing activity, I've had the kids create a drawing of an alien, creature, monster that they come up with. Then, they have to describe in great detail their monster. After they write their descritptions, they give them to another student to read and then that student tries to replicate the drawing based on the description. The kids see very quickly how importatnt it is to include details and be specific. The kids then compare their drawings. It becomes obvious that if the drawings are pretty close, the descriptive writing was good. You can have them go back and edit and try with another kid. I had no complaints with this one.
