A LETTER FROM DOLPH THE DOLPHIN TO A GEORGE WASHINGTON LIVING IN COLORADO
1842 Arizona Ave.
784 Denver, Colorado
Dear George W.,
Have we ever met? Once? Twice? Never? Man! How is it in the States? It is so much fun in the water. A lot of dolphins are building new homes so we can live and have fun in the water. We can do tricks, play on the playgrounds. We have food and a lot of toys, supplies and we have school! We can watch ballgames, watch movies in theatres, plays and we have underwater vehicles. I dream that I can drive the UnderMobile 3000. It would be so awesome. Each day, I go to school, except weekends. I do my homework and once I finish, I play all I want. When I have my playtime, I always play videogames that are driving games. I love to drive. I also play with my friends, watch TV, or go to plays or movies with my friends. I want to write more and more letters. It would be awesome. We write each day back and forth. It would be awesome if we write back and forth every minute. You will write back? Promise? I have to go, so please write back.

This piece was composed during the May 9th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students from Admiral Seymour Elementary School were guided through the construction of three aquatic biospheres, and were then asked to compose a letter from something or someone that is “voiceless”, but might nevertheless have something to say. More pieces from this class can be seen here.
