Action

Show your love for animals with a piece of creative writing.

 

Why

If you love writing, then you can use your talent to help animals in need!

Detail

Here are some ideas for what you could write about:

  • Animal instincts – think of an activity you do every day. Then imagine you had the ability of a particular animal. Write about how you would do that activity with your new skills.
  • Somebody to love – write a story about an animal at an animal shelter waiting to be adopted. What is their story?
  • Pawsome poetry – write a poem about an animal you love. This could be your favourite animal or perhaps one who may often be overlooked.
  • The interview – imagine you were able to communicate with an endangered animal. Write a list of questions for an interview with them. Extension: do this activity with a friend and interview one another. Take turns to be the interviewer and the animal.
  • Through their eyes – write a story about an animal, like a mouse, kept in an animal-testing facility. What would life be like for them?
  • Life on the farm – choose an animal who lives on a factory farm. Write a story from their point of view. What is life like for them? Would they rather be somewhere else?
  • History maker – write a story about someone (maybe even you!) changing the world to make it a better place for animals. Maybe you have a superpower or discover a new invention. What changes would you make and how would you make them happen?

 

Top tips:

  • Have a plan – ask the important questions: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How? You may want to write down some key points before you start writing.
  • If you find the idea of writing a long story a bit daunting, start with something short, like a poem.
  • Make sure to proofread your piece before publishing it. You may want to ask for the help of an adult or friend.
