ANSWER
(it may be a little hard to get 500 words in there, try putting a lot of quotes in the paper)
but you know the part where she’s looking out the window and:

1st there’s signs of spring : representing new life, even though she doesn’t know it yet

then its the blue sky- which represents her freedom (like a bird flying in the sky- there’s a reason her name is mrs mallard)

then finally it hits her that she is free, that her husband is dead and she can have a new life. and the blue sky represents her freedom again, although this time she accepts it.

try to be wordy and put as many quotes as possible in your paper to take up room. maybe use the three parts i gave you as the three body paragraphs and then have an intro and conclusion.
GOOD LUCK!! 🙂
