What's a Zipper? A Writing Game
What does it take to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? It may seem like the simplest of tasks, but how easy would it be to explain the process to someone who had never had a sandwich before? Explaining an everyday activity in detail helps develop skills vital to good rhetorical writing: clarity, timing, detailed explanation, and organization. This is a great activity for third graders, whose writing style is just beginning to bloom and who are starting to write more and more detailed stories and sentences in school.
What You Need:
