A sensory seed can be used to produce a descriptive piece of writing. When unpacking a sensory seed, we usually use a prompt such as a picture and then unpack our senses about the image by imagining we are inside the image.

We can write down what we see, feel, hear, imagine, wonder, taste and smell.

Today we are going to unpack two seeds. The first seed I will model on the board by using the shark and kayak image. The second seed, on the ugly sea creature, we will all do in our writers’ notebook.
