Creative Writing Story
You must write a creative story imagining yourself in Neil Armstrong's shoes and being the first person to walk on the moon. You need to use complete sentences, and have at least 5 paragraphs. The more creative the story, the better the grade!
1st paragraph: Before launch - What would you be thinking/feeling before launch knowing you are putting your life at risk to be the first person to walk on the moon. Elaborate!
2nd paragraph: Launch and traveling to the moon - How would you deal with the difficulties of no gravity? What would you be thinking on your way to the Moon? What would you be doing?
3rd paragraph: You are on the moon! - What emotions are going through your head? What are you doing? What is it like? What are you feeling? What would you be saying? I want to know details about your time on the Moon.
4th paragraph: Leaving the moon and returning to Earth - What are you thinking now? Are you relieved? Sad? Excited? Worried about getting back safely? Missing your family? What is going on during this part of your trip?
5th paragraph: Afterwards - You are now the most famous person in the world. What would your life be like? What do you remember? What was the best part? Would you go to the moon again? What would you be telling people? Be creative!
