Creative Writing Exercise: Researching Iconic Objects

3 Favorites 0 Copies
Language Arts And English Age Level Middle School (13 to 15 years old)

In this collection, there are multiple images of objects that have been considered to be iconic in society. The objective of this collection is for students to look at the objects and research the significance of those objects.  For this exercise, students will look over the images and write about those objects. This will allow students to use factual information that they look up, process the information, and use it to complete a writing assignment. They could write a fictional story having to do with the object of choice or they could write about a time when they have used the object during their day to day lives.
