The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all four words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

boulder – large rock
Our second set of homophones is:
flew – past tense of fly
flu – short for influenza
flue – chimney pipe
