6 Ideas For Using Science in Creative Writing

There is not much room for creative writing in science, however, science is an excellent source of ideas for creative writing.  Here are some tips for turning scientific observations into stories:


1.  Habitat Haiku

Use the scene outside the window, from the backyard or a favorite outdoor spot to write a haiku or other poetry.

2.  Dramatic Discovery

Turn a recent scientific discovery the kids have made into a story.

3.  Time Travel

Study a scientist and write a story in which the scientist visits us in the future.

4.  Solve a Problem

Discuss a problem and create an invention to solve it.  Write a story about what could happen if the invention worked.

5.  Make it Humorous

Write jokes, comic strips, funny poems or stories using cells, atoms, animals and other scientific objects as characters.

6.  Animal Antics

Keeping a journal for pet observations can inspire and add details to animal tales.
