From Kevin's fabulous Edgalaxy Blog:
The Snapshot Writing Tool is designed to put students in a specific moment in time using a visual prompt such as a photo or video and then write about what you see? What you hear? What you smell? What you taste? and what you feel? Drawing upon all 5 senses.
The snapshot writing tool will really encourage your students create visual imagery within their writing, and they have a great deal of fun putting themselves in the perspective of the picture.
Students can either use a photo of their own anlongside the tool or alternately you can access my collection of 150 Amazing writing prompts here.
