SOS Sagas: Hunted 2023

Middle & High Years

A thrilling writing activity...

Heart racing... sweaty palms... dilated pupils... hairs on the back of your neck stand up... Hunted: Outrun. Outlast. Outwit.

SOS Sagas: Hunted is here to get your students' gripped with writing as they create their own thrilling mini saga - a story told in up to 100 words.

Empower your students to write enthralling tales using tension, suspense, and atmosphere. Download the lesson plan that covers these techniques along with the inspirational story story starters. Your students will be buzzing to create their own original mini saga and they could become published writers, seeing their work in a real book!

Mini sagas can use a story starter or be your students' own ideas - all work entered must be your students' own work.

If you’d like further graphic organizers they can be copied or downloaded. If you prefer to go paperless, check out the Online Writing Portal where your students type their work during your lesson! If you need help logging in please email [email protected].
