Guess Who? Write Descriptions Of People (7-11 years)

'Guess Who? Write Descriptions Of People' presents an exciting method for children aged 7 to 11 years to boost their language arts and writing skills. This teaching resource connects imagination with practical writing assignments, assisting learners in enhancing their ability to write thoughtful descriptions of people they're familiar with.

The process begins with tuning into a fictitious 'Guinea Pig FM radio'. This station features a vibrant radio script where DJ George and co-presenter Christabelle offer descriptions of themselves. Learners are then tasked at mirroring this level of detailing when describing someone they know.

Potential extension activities can include turning the assignment into an interactive game of Guess Who?, prompting others identify who the student described based on the stated characteristics.

The Structure for Descriptions

  • Physical Appearance
  • Character Traits
  • Hobbies or Activities
  • The writer's feelings about them
This structure helps organise students' thoughts and improve their understanding of paragraph building.
