Creative Writing - Activity 4

Polar bear cubs' first day outdoors

Polar bears are born blind and deaf, underneath the snow, in their mother's winter den.

When they emerge from their snowy home they are seeing the outside world for the very first time.


Imagine that you are one of the bear cubs. Today is the day when you will see, hear, touch, taste and smell the outside world for the very first time. Write a description of that new world from the bear cub's point of view, focusing on the five senses.

Then try creative writing exercise number 2.
