Personification Nature Hike Inspires Writing

Second graders are studying books by noteworthy authors such as "Owl Moon" by Jane Yolen and "In November" by Cynthia Rylant to find powerful parts of the story, and identify why they are powerful. They discovered that authors use personification to help readers see, hear, and feel. To celebrate Outdoor Classroom Day, the class went on a Personification Nature Hike to look for inspiration for their own writing projects.
