Look Around You - Your Five Senses and Writing

Learn how to use the five senses in your writing to bring it alive. Go from "telling" to "showing." Note: Students will need a glass of something to drink – touch the glass; see the glass; taste the beverage; hear the sound it makes when you’re drinking or setting it down; smell the beverage
