The Snapshot Writing Tool is a great way to get students to write about an exact moment in time.  It is an opportunity to laser focus on how our senses and emotions react to the world and events around us.  

Using this tool, students simply write what they see, hear, feel, smell, see, and taste. This is a great task to aid students in creating imagery within their writing.

It is always written from a first-person perspective and will force your students to think outside the box when describing any event or action in future.
