Example for Grade 4: Narrative – Ant Colony - ID: 709
Oh my gosh! I don’t know what happened, but I shrank to an ant’s size today! Some of the ants took me to their colony and I met the queen. Their home was nice and all, but I felt wierd as some of the other ants were glaring at me. The queen ant decided for me to become part of the ant colony and I wasn’t so sure. I missed my parents and thought how worried they would be. Later as I looked around the ants’ home, the queen told me to be a scout ant. I never thought I would be given a job, but I made some ant friends and got along with them.
It was actually sort of fun! But as I looked for food with the others, it got dark. I thought if the day already ended but NO!!!! A human was about to step on me!!! I warned the others to run away, but I tripped as I was scampering. I tripped on a piece of food! The human was trying to help me find food! I was so greatful that I wasn’t squashed. As I stood up, the ants saw the food and called for the other ants to help get the food to the home.
The other scout ants told all about the adventure I had to the queen and she was suprised! She wanted to do something in return for me, so she asked me what I wanted most. I told her that I wanted to get back home where I came from. She was sad, but did what I wanted. Before that though, she asked me if I could join their feast. I was hungry, so I agreed. The feast was great and I had a wonderful time!!! After the wonderful feast, Iwas sent back home and was back to normal.
