LQ: Do I know the features of an explanation text?

This week we will be exploring how to write explanation texts. Watch the video on the BBC website about explanation texts. Ensure you are listening because you will need to use this information for the next activity.


Now you have watched the video, create a mind map highlighting the features of an explanation.

For example: you need subheadings, diagrams...



Once you have completed this task, I would like you to create a front cover for your diary entry. When you are back in class, you will be writing up the diary entry neat once I have checked over it, so its important that a cover is made so it can go nicely in your English book.
