A figure in space: vocabulary in descriptive writing

Using an image of an astronaut and the trailer of the film 'Gravity', students complete several tasks to develop their vocabulary and then write a short descriptive piece.  

Activities include:

  • a warm-up task to change the word class of interesting vocabulary
  • creative vocabulary task based on a picture prompt of an astronaut
  • vocabulary exploration task based on editing the sentence: The figure was floating in space.
  • a vocabulary task using the Gravity film trailer as a prompt
  • an imaginative writing task where students write a third person narrative of 200 words
  • peer assessment support.
