Subject/Topic/Theme: ELAUsing Sensory Details

What is the point of this lesson? What is the Big Idea?

Students will gain a better understanding of sensory details. Students will be able to write using sensory details in order to
enhance their own writing style. My main reason for teaching this lesson is to get Anahla and Deona inspired to do some
writing! I want them to realize that writing doesnt have to be boring, you can add descriptors and imagination to it!
How does this lesson fit into a unit or long term plan?
This lesson is important in the students lives, as they will need to use details in their writing for school. Writing is a life long
skill and always needs to be improved.

Teacher Activity
Describe to the students what
sensory details are. Tell them that
they are going to do an exercise
that will enhance their abilities to
use sensory details beyond
sayingit smells good.

smell apple pie. I then open the
oven and see apple pie. After
taking it out of the oven, I can
taste and touch the apple pie.
-Pass out lined paper, pencils, etc.
-Explain to the students that you
are going to be putting objects
near them and want them to use
sensory descriptors or
describing words to help others
who didnt witness the object
understand what it is.
-Pass out the first object (red)
remind students to use as many
descriptive words as possible,
describe it to someone who has
never seen the object
-Pass out the second object
(cinnamon). Tell the students to
write down as many images that
the smell evokes
-Have the students close their
eyes, pass out the cotton ball and
the sandpaper. Tell the students
