We are writing a non-chronological report about an alien this week. When you have looked through the Alien Pictures PowerPoint, you will need to select an alien that you are going to write about, you can change some things about your alien, but the pictures are to help you think about what it may look like. Use the Habitat Information Sheet to help decide where your alien lives; the Diet Information Sheet to choose your alien’s diet; and use Fact Files for any additional information on your alien.
Add the information about your alien to your Planning Sheet. You could even draw a sketch of what your alien will look like.
