An informal email to a snowflake
The Snowflakes Manifest
"We’re on strike! We’re tired of freezing all the time and always falling down. Every day we lie around with nothing to do. We’re fed up with no pay, cold, windy working conditions and getting stepped on or brushed aside. But most of all, we’re tired of being eaten! Therefore, we, the Union of Snowflakes, refuse to do any more falling until the following demands are met.
Phase 1: So, snowflakes went on strike...
But they were lucky and their demands were met! Brainstorm about possible snowflakes demands:
|They were tired of....||So, they demanded...... (teacher suggestions in case you are short of ideas)|
|Freezing all the time||blankets|
|Always falling down||sledges|
|Doing nothing||Paid holidays in the Caribbean|
|Cold, windy work conditions||A shorter working day|
|Getting stepped and brushed aside||Special lanes|
|Getting eaten||A sour taste|
Phase 2 - Write an informal email
You are a snowflake that is writing an EMAIL to a friend (another snowflake) that was at the hospital while the rest of you were fighting for your rights. Be the first to tell him/her about the good news. Give as much detail as possible.
Follow these steps:
- Greet your friend
- State the topic
When Where Who Future perspectives
- Give more details about your new working conditions.
- Wish him/he a fast recovery
- Say goodbye
