4R: Come and look at our learning!

Explanations

Published Monday, November 14, 2011.
Last updated: Monday, November 14, 2011

This week we are learning all about Explanation texts.  Can you use this game to find features of the text?

 

 

 

 
Have a look at these explanations texts for How things Work on WikiJunior.  Can you spot some of the features?  (time words, causal connectives, present tense)
 
 

 

How does it work?

Although ice is solid, as long as temperatures are above −20°C (−4°F) there is always a very thin layer of water on the surface that makes it slippery. Extra melted water from the rubbing between the blade and the ice vastly reduces the friction allowing the skater to glide across the ice with little effort.

The blade on a modern ice skate has a double edge with a concave hollow between them. The two edges allow for a better grasp of the ice, even when tilted. Because the bottom of the blade is slightly curved, as the blade tilts to one side or the other, the edge which is in contact with the ice also curves. This causes the the skater to turn. If the skates tilt to the right, the skater turns right, if the skates tilt to the left, the skater turns left.

 

 

Play Connectives Blockbuster at home.  Can you beat your friends and family? 

 


Comment By Miss Rebecca 

Can we get all the way across the board as a class? Add your sentence as a comment underneath.

Although I like playing tennis, I prefer to go swimming.
