Pirate Treasure Island - Descriptive Writing VCOP
A VCOP warm up lesson that leads into a descriptive piece of writing. The lesson is introduced through a letter in a bottle (I printed and tea stained it). The powerpoint illustrates a journey taken through a desert island to find hidden treasure. I also had a treasure chest with relevant props for each group to handle and look at to help generate ideas e.g rusty lantern, rope, parrot feathers, keys, ancient statue, shells etc... N.B The VCOP word cards came from another TES resource that I have linked to.
