'When you finish with this section, you will write an observational essay. This essay will be a description of a person, place, or thing you can observe. You'll write using sensory details and perhaps a bit of narrative. Some key elements will be sharp, clear sensory details and crisp, fresh writing. Observe a subject closely. Make a chart listing sensory details as you can.'

I'm not sure what I should write about..any good ideas/suggestions?

Thanks

    How about your yard? Or a nearby park? Or a grocery store?

    Sit and observe for several minutes, jotting notes about what you see, hear, smell, and touch. Be specific. It would help if you chose a place you can visit again a day or two later.
