Yesterday, I asked you to choose from one of the following tasks. You have today's session to finish your draft so that we can edit and improve tomorrow before presenting our finished pieces.
- Can you write a poem (any kind of poem you choose) about where a water droplet might have been before it gets to your glass of drink? Use the ideas you came up with yesterday as a starting point.
- Can you write a diary entry for a day in the life of a drop of water? What do you think it would be like to find yourself in one place and then another without warning? How would it feel to travel right through the human body and then through the water treatment system and then out into a reservoir?!
- Can you write a letter from one water droplet to another? Perhaps they used to sit together in the body of a T-Rex and have been separated ever since? Maybe your water droplet is dreaming of where and when he might see his long lost pal again?!
I would love to read these on the blog or via the school e-mail but not until tomorrow, when you've had time to write them properly and redraft!!
Don't forget that Google is your friend when it comes to finding better vocabulary - typing a word and then 'synonym' in the search bar should give you a long list of alternatives but make sure that the word you decide to use has exactly the right meaning!
