Snapshot Writing is a great way to get students to write about an exact moment in time. It is an opportunity to laser focus on how our senses and emotions react to the world and events around us.
Using this tool students simply write what they see, hear, feel, smell, see and taste. This is a great task to aid students to create imagery within their writing.
It is always written from a first person perspective and will force your students to think outside the box when describing any event or action in future.
