Creative Writing Prompt

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah

Before this activity, I thumb through my old magazines and collect different pictures of children, families, cars, landscapes, food, animals, etc. Then at the beginning of our writing session, I randomly pass out 3-4 pictures to each student. I pass them out facing down so they can't see the pictures before we begin. Once all of my pictures are passed out, I have all of my students turn them over at the same time. There are bound to be quite a few laughs! Their challenge then is to write a paragraph (or story!) using all of the pictures in front of them. Granted, the stories tend to be a little on the crazy side, but it is a fun way for students to construct a new story in a fast and fun way.
