Class 4P rainforest animal traps!

We have been designing traps to catch rainforest animals.  We had to think about the kind of trap we wanted to design and then draw it and explain how it would work. We used a plan to work out each step and a word bank to include technical words before writing up our full explanations.

We had to use time connectives, for example:

  • first
  • next
  • the
  • after that
  • finally

and Causal connectives, for example:

  • because
  • so
  • therefore
  • but

Technical words:

  • pulley
  • fan
  • timer
  • cage
  • lever
  • trap

We liked doing this task because it was fun designing traps and it helped us understand how to explain things. We will be including our traps in our stop frame animation.

    What a brilliant blog! You’ve certainly worked very hard on your explanation texts.
