COLLABORATIVE WRITING BUNDLE: SNOWBALL WRITING
Snowball collaborative writing is a fun and interactive way to teach your students how to write collaboratively. I can guarantee these 5 activities will be lessons your students will not forget! The basic premise of the method is that a student begins the writing process (based on the specific instructions), crumples it up into a "snowball" and throws it to the front of the room for another collaborator to collect! This process is repeated until it is returned to the original writer for editing revision!
