Going on a Paper Hunt: Nouns, Adjectives, Letter Writing and Science - Properties of Paper

A lesson introduces scholars to nouns and adjectives. After listening to a short story and practicing creating adjectives with a card sort, pupils go on a paper hunt to locate different types of paper, complete a chart with adjectives, and determine the best paper for writing and drawing. Learners write or dictate a letter and draw a corresponding picture. An assessment challenges participants to retell the short story.
