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.
