WRITING
My Adventures on a Flying Carpet!

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: April 12, 2001

Ask a local carpet store to donate a supply of discontinued carpet samples. You'll want the small ones where there are various colors on one page of a carpet book. Invite your students to write about their adventures of what it might be like to ride on a magic carpet. What will they see? What will they do? How high will they go? Then have your students staple or bind the small carpet samples as to be the front cover of their books. They can even draw a small picture of themselves, cut it out, and glue on top of the cover to resemble themselves flying that magic carpet. These turn out to be really fun stories!

Note: For an added special touch, take larger carpet samples (approx. 15" x 20") and have each student sit on one while they write. They'll begin to picture themselves actually riding on a magic carpet!
