    The rest of March's writing/discussion prompts (also great
    for morning announcements and newsletters) by Jim Wayne are
    posted online (link below).

    2 samples:

    March 24
    Harry Houdini, magician and escape artist, was born in 1874.
    He was famous for being able to escape from extremely
    complicated and difficult traps. He once said, “My brain is
    the key that sets me free.” What do you think he meant by that?

    March 28:
    The first Spanish settlement in San Francisco Bay was begun
    in 1776 by Juan Bautista de Anza. Suppose you were selecting
    people to set up a new colony in a far-away place. What
    skills do you think such colonists should have? List 10
    skills, then decide whether each skill is necessary for
    every colonist, or is only needed by a few of them.
