This packet has 10 writing prompts to help students write a story about wildlife. Each page has a wildlife photo (a fallen tree across a trail, a toad, a wasp, a beetle, a yellow leaf, a hover fly (bee mimic), a zebra swallowtail butterfly, a rat snake, a dragonfly, and a green tree frog. Students respond to story starters on themes of love, transformation, death, and more:
The green tree frog waited. It was good at that, silently passing each day’s hours with the hope that the night would bring something meaningful. Hoping. Dreaming. Of her.
The zebra swallowtail landed among the broken twigs and muddy leaves. What is this? What happened? How have I come to be what I am, so majestic, so transformed, so different?
Unable to stop its downward plummet, the aging leaf wondered if this was it, if this was the end that others spoke of in the dark silences of the night.
