Writing: Now how do I get out of this one?
Chores are a bore. Even though they teach us responsibility, they're no fun. But what if there were a fun way to get out of doing them? In this activity, you will come up with creative excuses for avoiding chores.
Your Turn Write creative excuses.
- List ten chores or tasks you hate doing. Cleaning my room is an example of a chore you might not like.
- Select four tasks from your list and write a creative excuse explaining why you can’t or haven’t completed each one. Make your excuses as original and wild as possible.
- When you’ve finished, exchange your work with a classmate. Read and discuss each other’s excuses.
