We are currently reading the book, Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen. We focus on several skills while reading the book. One of these skills is visualization. In this book, Gary Paulsen uses a ton of descriptive writing. We reread a section of the book and then the students had to use watercolor paints to show what they saw as they read this descriptive passage. We discussed and compared our visualizations in table groups and then displayed them in the hallway.
They turned out pretty good for our first try!
