Writing Ideas

  • Write a haiku about the cuttlefish featured in the clip. A haiku is a Japanese poem that (traditionally) evokes an image of the natural world. It has three lines and uses a pattern of 5,7,5 syllables. You could use some of the descriptive words from the Word Wall.
  • Imagine you are the crab in the main clip. Write a diary entry about your encounter with the cuttlefish. Remember to talk about how hypnotic you found the cuttlefish to be, and how you were lucky to survive! Remember to use lots of vivid, descriptive language.
  • Write a super hero adventure story that features Cuttlefishman. With the power to both hypnotise and blend in with any surrounding, who does Cuttlefishman need to defeat and why?
