I can invent and make a page of a study book to show people how to write a great set of instructions.

OR

I can invent a page of an important bits book to show people how to interpret pie charts.

  • How you are going to make it creative and interesting to read.
  • What information will you include to help your reader learn about instructions or pie charts?

  • If you’re producing information about pie chats don’t forget to mention the learning steps children need to take: look at the number of sections, how many people in total, and fractions for each section.

Have fun!

I can express my opinions about our topic Snowbound.

We are starting our new topic and need some work to show our opinions about Snowbound to start a display in the classroom.

  • A newspaper report about being trapped in the snow.
  • Some graffiti style art work in a snowy or icy style
  • Poetry inspired by snow or ice or an avalanche.

Or…your own idea!
