Writing prompts:

  • Did you have a Walkman? Did your parents? Did you have an MD player? A portable CD player? What do you use to listen to music now? How do you download it?
  • Watch another video from the “React” series by the Fine Brothers, and explain what you saw and what you think.
  • If you have a sibling or cousin who’s much younger than you are, see if you can find a gadget that you think they won’t “get” (check with your parents and grandparents, maybe), and do a similar “react” experiment.
