With this 2-page worksheet, students will draw an original dragon and describe it by writing sentences using vivid adjectives.
We know how much students love to draw, so we have incorporated that into a fun adjectives activity.
First, students will draw a picture of a dragon. Then, using their knowledge of adjectives, students will write 5 sentences describing their dragon and underline all the adjectives in each sentence.
