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!
