I think your writers will really love the image for this week. It’s a picture of the Ring Nebula and it’s truly awesome! This graphic alone inspires creativity, however, I have included some picture writing prompts that will give your kids some specific topics to write about.
1. A Beautiful Discovery
You are exploring the universe in your spaceship and you come across this beautiful nebula. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, you can’t take a picture of it. The only way you can tell anyone back home about it is to write a description and send that home. Write a detailed description of this nebula.
2. A Voice
As you approach this space anomaly, you hear a voice speak inside your head. It says . . . Finish this story.
3. Fable or Folktale
Write a fable or folktale about how this nebula came to be.
4. Make It Yours
Come up with your own piece of writing for this picture.
Be sure to come back each week for more picture writing prompts or check out my Picture Writing Prompts Weekly Series to see the complete list of links.
P.S. If you liked these prompts, I have more writing prompts for kids here. Enjoy!
