I’ve seen this all over Pinterest in a variety of different formats. I really wanted to do it last year with my class, but ran out of time so this year I was bound and determined to do it with my students.  After checking out all the ways other people have done this with their students, I came up with my own version.

This version was my favorite and my main inspiration.

Snow Globe Writing

Give each child a “think sheet” for planning their writing. Older students may not need the “think sheet.” Have students decide what three things they would do while stuck in a snow globe.
