Snowball Fight in the Classroom

Descriptive Writing Exercise

The sixth-grade students were given a picture and asked to write a description for it.  The students were required to put as much detail as possible into their writings.  When the students finished writing we had a paper snowball fight in the classroom.  I think that they enjoyed this part the most.  After a few minutes, the students were required to grab a paper and read it. I had the original pictures laying out on a desk.  Using the description, the students had to find the correct picture.  This was a great way to practice descriptive writing.
