    Descriptive writing using 5 senses
    By Kris

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I do a FUN activity with my kids using the five senses. I give each student a piece of writing paper and tell them we are going to write about "Object X." They have to pretend they are aliens and want to send information back to their home planet about a new discovery: "Object X" (a Hershey's kiss!).
    1) we write about what it looks like first(no touching);
    2)then how it feels,
    3)then we write about the sound(of the foil wrapper);
    4)next we smell Object X
    5)we use our sense of taste!!!! mmmm!

    By the way the students are not allowed to use the words CHOCOLATE, or KISS! My first graders had a lot of fun with this activity and it is centered around writing! I have my kids write at least one sentence for each sense.
