Fair Bear Launches into Space
Fair Bear got so excited watching the rocket launch on television with his family earlier in the year. So, he started thinking, "What would it be like to go into space?" He decided to enter a contest where the winner would be chosen to take part in the next rocket launch and take a trip to space.
Students are asked to write about Fair Bear entering the contest and winning the opportunity of a lifetime. What are his feelings when it is announced that he is the winner? What training will he have to do before he goes? When he finally gets to space, what are some things he will see - planets, solar systems, the sun, meteors, asteroids, new life forms?
Teachers, this is an excellent Creative Writing exercise that allows the student to push their imagination into the far reaches of our universe. It's easy to enter and a great opportunity to win prize money for your school!
