Goal: I can write interesting and engaging captions for a picture

Captions are used to help explain what is happening in a picture. Sometimes they can simply tell you what is in the picture, however, it can also an opportunity to use your creative writing skills! Today you are going to write some creative captions for funny animal photos.

Your caption should talk about what could be happening in the picture. You might like to come up with a funny idea of what the animal was thinking, doing or feeling when this photo was taken.

You might even like to write it as though it is the animal’s voice!

You could also describe some features of the animal or the environment.

Remember that you can make your captions as silly as you like! Use your imagination.
