Descriptive Writing Lesson

This is a lesson I created to get my students to "show" the reader instead of "tell" them what is occurring in the story. I use the "Mysteries of Harris Burdick" pictures for the students to base their stories on, but you can choose any fiction-writing prompt, or have the kids create their own.
