Writing Idea #6

One of my favorite things to do is show a picture or a short video clip and ask for students' reaction to it.  It's amazing the variety of responses that you get.  Below is a short video clip (4 minutes).  There is no talking during the clip and it's about the journey of a little boat.  Watch the clip, then create a Google Doc titled "Little Boat" and write your reaction to the video.  What did you think of it?  Did you like it?  Why or why not?  What message do you think the person who created the video was trying to send?  I can't wait to hear everyone's reaction.  I'll definitely be giving some bonus tickets out to students who try this writing idea!
