Ray Bradbury competition

Ray Bradbury competitions

At the beginning of each period of the school day, teachers will be reading a segment of ‘ A Sound of Thunder’ by Ray Bradbury to all students.

In the year 2055, time travel has become a practical reality, and the company Time Safari Inc. offers wealthy adventurers the chance to travel back in time to hunt extinct species such as dinosaurs.

A hunter named Eckels pays $10,000 to join a hunting party that will travel back 66 million years to the Late Cretaceous period, on a guided safari to kill a Tyrannosaurus rex.

But when Eckels returns history itself has somehow changed: there has been a very different election result. In this timeline, a corrupt and evil man has become President.

There are two competitions:

Competition 1: Re-write an alternative ending for the story. Send your entry to info@chat-edu.org.uk

Competition 2: Do your own review of the story. You can use any format/ media to do this. Send your entry to: info@chat-edu.org.uk
