This narrative writing lesson is all about Inky, an octopus. Inky squeezed out of his tank one night and then crossed the floor, slithered through a narrow drain about six inches in diameter, crawled down a 164 foot pipe and then jumped into the sea. Then he disappeared. This true story about Inky is amazing and kids find the story fascinating! This lesson includes video links, website resources, graphic organizer and more to help kids get their creative juices flowing as they write their stories about Inky. When their stories are complete, their work can be published on the attached stationary with the fun octopus cutout on top! The lesson plan is easy to follow and is no prep (besides copies)! Multiple types of resources are used to help students produce a strong product. Even reluctant writers will find the topic intriguing!
