Language Arts CORE

CORE 5th Grade Writing Standard 3 
Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.

Travel to four different places and the world, zoom all the way in so that you can see the street you’re on. You will receive story prompts/scenes at each location to help you to create your story. Starting in Paris in front of Notre Dame a stranger comes up to, addresses you by name and gives you a wrapped package to take to Rome for another scene. Embed photos as illustrations for your writing.
