syraiahlee WALT think from somebody else's point of view


Imagine you are one of these people who have been in a terrible earthquake.
Think about how the day that the earthquake hit.
  • What were you doing before it hit?
  • Who were you with?
  • When the earthquake hit, how did you feel? Scared, confused, alarmed?
  • What did you do? Run, scream, get scared and stay still, cry?
  • What did you do next? Try to find friends/family? Hide in a doorway or under a table? Run away?
  • How were you feeling throughout the day?
  • What happened at night - where did you sleep? Was your house okay? Was your family okay?

Write a 100 word (or more) diary entry about your imaginary day.
Try to be as descriptive as possible (use lots of powerful words!)

Start here:

Dear Diary,
i think i feel every single tiny
earthquake
in my big bed
alone
[which i love]
because inside
i am always
Quaking.
my body shakes from the cold
that’s normal - at least it's what i’m told
my whole body shakes

it's like i’m an earthquake an earthquake inside
waiting to break my mind
it's so hard to tell
when i hear the bell
if all of this is truly real.
