Take a walk down the fourth-grade hall at Wilson Elementary, and you’ll feel like your walking through a maze of paper zombies. This is all part of a writing project where students relate a story behind a scar they have somewhere on their bodies. As you can imagine the students have been very excited to include every gory detail.  This gives students something real to write about, making the writing experience very personal!
