In Class Response

Please select an acorn from the bag passed around at the beginning of class. Once you draw the acorn of your choice you will need to write a detailed description of the acorn beyond general information like “it’s small and green”. Instead look for every possible scratch, crack, color change, texture, even smell—describe this acorn like we are about to place it back into the bag in five minutes and your entire grade for the Unit rests on your ability to draw your exact acorn from the bag again. You are welcome to use figurative language such as simile, metaphor, and personification.

Once you have described your acorn give it a story. Imagine for a minute how it got in the condition that it is, where it came from, what doe its mother tree look like? Was it afraid to fall from the branches or excited? What is its name? Your acorn may not be perfect, but that is the beauty of it. The more imperfections and detail your acorn possesses, the more you will have to say about its history and character.

You should draft a paragraph for each.
