Students love this Descriptive Writing – Shapes activity because they get to be creative!
This writing activity is a great exercise to bring basic shapes to life by describing them with strong verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
First, students will read the directions thinking, what does the shape remind them of. For instance, a triangle shape is really a hot, juicy slice of pizza with bubbling cheese that drips down the side. The shapes include a triangle, circle, rectangle, and a blank space to create their own fourth shape.
The goal is to write a descriptive paragraph that is detailed and creative, so the reader forgets it's a basic shape.
After that, they will color and decorate their shapes to resemble the creativity in each paragraph.
In short, this writing activity is a great way to get your students thinking creatively about basic ideas.
