Open a discussion with students focused on vacations they have taken with their family and/or friends. What types of housing did they stay in while vacationing? Where were the vacation spots located? What types of amenities were available?
Ask students to think creatively about how they would design a dream vacation mansion. Where would it be? What would it look like? How many stories would it be? What kind of rooms would they have? What would the setting look like?
Provide each student with black Crayola® Markers and a piece of white construction paper. Ask students to draw an outline of their vacation mansion on the white paper.
With a partner, discuss and then write creative descriptions for each of your mansions using Crayola Colored Pencils. Partners document contributions on white lined paper. Students write on every other line so they can fit in more details when revising descriptions later.
