Task: Today you are going to plan your guide to the Arctic and Antarctica.

You will have two English lessons to write your actual guide (Thursday and Friday.)

 

Challenge 1: In your guide plan to include at least: both the geographical features of the Arctic and Antarctica and about at least one polar explorer of your choice.

 

Challenge 2: In your guide plan to include at least: An introduction to your guide, the similarities and difference between the Arctic and Antarctica, at least two polar explorers and another area of your choice.

 

Challenge 3: In your guide, plan to include: a detailed introduction, an extensive account of what you have learnt about the Arctic and Antarctica, focusing on the geographic features-comparing and contrasting them, historical expeditions, what is happening currently happening there-including the impact of climate change. You can also include an area of your choice if you wish.

 

When doing this task, planning your guide, remember to:

  • Think about what it is important for your audience to know in each section.
  • Consider the order in which you want to present this information
  • Think about where you can include: headings, sub-headings, rhetorical questions
  • Plan where you are going to include diagrams, pictures and maps to illustrate your points and what they are going to look like
  • Decide what you want the overall look of your guide to be-remember to aim high because you will have two sessions to create your guide

 

Watch the tutorial to help you create a plan for your guide.
