During the first part of this lesson, you will be gathering information in order to write your own explanation text.

Please go through Wednesday's PowerPoint on Explanation texts and complete the activity attached. 


Once you have gathered all the information you need to write your explanation text, you will then be creating one in Canva. 

You have used Canva previously to create your dream board but I will go through some basics again on our teams call. 


Remember you must ensure you are including the features of an explanation text. 

  • Rhetorical questions 
  • Sub-headings
  • Title which includes why or how
  • Facts
  • Diagrams
  • Fronted adverbials 
  • Intro
  • Chronological order

Below is my example of what our finish explanation texts should look like.
