Thesis statement vs. topic sentence

First, it’s good to know what a thesis statement is and what it’s not. A thesis statement is not a topic sentence, although, in some cases it may well be your first sentence. Confused yet?

The key to a good descriptive essay is to really dig into the five senses as they relate to the subject of your essay. For example, if your essay is about a trek in the forest you’d focus on the senses of touch, smell, hearing, and sight, maybe not so much on taste.
