This week’s COW Writing Challenge is a visual prompt, coupled with the written prompt: “As I stood at the edge of the perilous pool, I saw . . .”
Before tackling this writing challenge, have the students consider the following questions:
Where was this perilous pool discovered?
What is this liquid, anyway? What causes it to bubble and give off steam?
What could possibly live in a pool like this?
If you fell into this pool, where would you go? What would happen?
We hope your students have a great time writing about this perilous pool. Wearing a personal floatation device during this writing activity is highly recommended!
