Write your own version of 'Footprints in the Wind' Think of a Maasai warrior and all the dangerous animals that he can encounter as he leaves to safety of the Manyatta to track a mysterious animal which threatens his village.
What is the mysterious animal (lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, water buffalo)? What other dangers will he meet along the way (a stampede of water buffalo, a snake bite, a crocodile in the lake, a hungry lion, a volcano erupting)? Will all of the choices he makes be the right ones (going on ahead of his friends, moving rocks, climbing trees, sleeping outside, drinking all his water)? Will he get any help from any other trees, animals or Enkai the Maasai God)? Will he succeed in his quest and will he make it home?
