Mix this Language Arts lesson in with pumpkins in Science! Rowdy in First Grade: Adjectives and Reading Rings Like the idea of posting a picture that the students choose adjectives for. Good for studying synonyms as well.
INSTRUCTION/ ASSESSMENT: Showing Telling Adding Details Writing. I would expand the idea of the branch further, and allow students to add descriptions on their own leaves. Again, I am big on the classroom environment being a reflection of the students!
