Writing With Details
~ May Dartez

Here's a writing game that works with almost any age group. Divide the class into teams. You give them a topic (such as Halloween)....they have to provide details about that topic. For those of you who have to prepare kids for writing tests, you can have them create a reasonable statistic, expert quotation, etc. One of my co-teachers and I created this game to use with our eighth-graders. It works really well and is fun.
