SAMPLE BOOK PUNCH WRITING PROMPTS

Buck must adapt to a new place when he moves to the icy wilderness from his comfortable house in California. He must learn how to live in the harsh, freezing cold Arctic Northland.

In the survival novel, "The Call of the Wild," Buck goes from living in a relaxed household in California to the cold, harsh environment of the Arctic Northland. In order to survive, Buck must change his behavior and adapt to his new environment.

You must write a thesis statement that expresses this opinion, a body of two or three paragraphs to support your statement, and a concluding paragraph that sums up this point of view.
