  • Blue Spring State ParkĀ is located in west Florida in theĀ United States. The park is a popular tourist destination with its star attraction being its manatees. They congregate here in large numbers because of the hot springs. Write a tourist guide that tells visitors about what they can expect to see and which informs them of what they can and cannot do in the park.
  • In centuries past, the ocean was thought to be full of krakens, sea serpents, sea monsters and mermaids. In fact, when Christopher Columbus set out to sea in 1492, he recorded what he thought was his own mermaid sighting; little did he know that this encounter was actually the first written record of manatees in North America! Writing as Columbus, record your thoughts and feelings about this encounter.
