Sample Personal Narrative
This narrative recalls an exciting competition with a surprise result.
The setting, problem, and people are introduced. As she handed out eggs, Ms. Clarke pointed to supplies in bins along the sidewalk. “Each team will build a contraption to keep your egg from cracking.”
While Jana held our egg safe, I scooped up supplies. First we covered our egg in duct tape, and then added a layer of cotton balls. Jana wove a net of pipe cleaners around it. We taped the whole thing inside a cardboard box and made a garbage-bag parachute.
