What if you could take a trip around the world? Where would you go? What would you see? Would you go to Antarctica to see the Ross Ice Shelf? Maybe you would stop in Africa to see lions and deserts.
Write a fictional narrative about taking a trip around the world. Before you write, you will need to research Antarctica and other places on Earth. Here are some questions to guide your research:
What places would you like to visit?
On which continent is each place located?
What is the climate like in each place?
What animals and plants are in each place?
Are you ready? Begin by visiting the Web sites listed in Step 2. Look for answers to the questions above. Write down what you learn in the boxes.
With teacher supervision, you may use search engines to research other Web sites. You also can research Antarctica and other places at the library. When you are ready, follow Steps 3 and 4 to write your narrative.
