Due Tuesday, October 26th We just started the story “A Walk in the Desert,” which focuses on a desert area, animals and plants in that area. We are also working on using descriptive words, writing a descriptive essay, setting, and character. Students are learning
Complete the attached form “Description of Area.” By completing this sheet, all details are already created so the diorama will be easy to create. This sheet will assist with our writing in school.
Students will choose a place to create a diorama of the ones listed. All details should be accurate about that area. Depending on prior knowledge or experience, please select a setting that students would be familiar with in order to give descriptive details.
The diorama should resemble what that area would look like, which will be the setting. (Where the story will eventually take place once students write it.)
It must have at least one possible item to use as a character. (We will be creating descriptive stories in school once we have all dioramas. Students will use them as their setting for their story and then use them later as a prop to read their story to the class that they created. Examples: Students may choose to use an animal or person as a character.)
