Talk about it:
Level 1: Who is in the picture? Where are they? What are they doing? What else is in the picture?
Level 2: Write 5 sentences that describe what the children are doing. Write 2 sentences about what you think will happen next. Choose your verb tenses carefully!
Level 3: Imagine that the children in this picture are your children. Write a paragraph that explains what they are doing, if you approve, and what they should do next.
Creative Writing: Write one page of a story from the point of view of one of these children. Try to surprise the reader at least twice with the unique perspective of the child.
Academic Writing: Write a compare and contrast essay that compares this picture to one specific memory from your own childhood. You can use the block method or point-by-point. You can address three similarities, three differences, or two and one. Since this is about your personal experience, it is appropriate to use “I” in this case.
