Grades 4 – 6: Unit 3 My Words Are My Paintings

Pick a spot inside your classroom or outside your school or home.  With a pad of paper and a pencil, sit on the ground and pick a focal point and write down five descriptive words based on what is in your direct line of sight.  Repeat this activity at the same spot at a kneeling height and finally standing.  After you have your collection of words, write a short story or poem about your spot using all the words you wrote.
