Writing Pin 2: Scene of the Crime Writing: Set up a fake crime scene.  Then have all the children to gather around and examine the scene of the crime.  After they have all looked at the crime scene have them return to their desk and tell them to write a story about what they thought happened.  This will make some interesting stories, but I would use this in only 4th or 5th grade.
