Christmas Writing Assignment - Living in a Snow Globe Holiday Writing Activity: This winter writing assignment has students imagine that they wake up trapped in a snow globe. They must write about the experience descriptively, using imagery, metaphors, and similes. Students will complete a pre-writing plan using the provided template, and then do their descriptive writing. This activity is perfect for students to embrace the holiday spirit, be creative, and practice their writing skills too!

Although this is a Christmas resource, there are no direct references to Christmas in this activity, so it also works well if you are not permitted to use holiday resources in your classroom.
