First, you will go over the definition of a descriptive paragraph. A descriptive paragraph describes a person, place, or thing. For example, you can describe a person. Here are some questions you would think about when you want to describe a person: What does the person look like? What does the person like to do? What is the person's personality?
You can also describe a setting. For example, you might ask the following questions: Where is the setting? Is it inside or outside? What colors do you see? What odors do you smell? Is there any furniture in the setting? What else do you see?
You can also describe an object. You might ask the following questions: What does the object look like? What color is it? What shape is it?
Students need to use descriptive words to make the person, place, or thing realistic.
You can also give them an example of a descriptive paragraph before they begin their worksheet.
