I hope you enjoyed this web quest that was create on the topic adjectives. This lesson can be used for whole group instruction and the children will find it very excited as they will get the chance to eat what so ever fruit they describe. That's the best part of it all for us, as walking through woods we might get a little tired and hungry.
This lesson will take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. It's up to you.

For the descriptive sentence, have children use their own sheet of paper.
