Reading

Finish reading the chapter, ‘Death in the Long Grass’. Yesterday we looked for clues that Alex was being led to danger. Today we are going to summarise the chapter using ordering events. Put the events in the table below in the order they happen in the chapter.

Alex and one of the drivers race towards each other as if they are in engaging in an old fashioned game of chicken.
The drivers set fire to the grass using a flame thrower.
One of the drivers crashes into the fence.
One of the drivers falls off the cliff and lands in the water.
The drivers head towards Alex with cheese wire running between their vehicles.

Using the above, summarise in less than 50 words the dangers Alex faces in the chapter ‘Death in the Long Grass’.

Writing

Join me on Zoom, where we will recap the difference between synonyms and antonyms. Let’s have a look at how we can place vocabulary on a scale and use synonyms to up-level our writing.
After the live session, complete the activity on dojo.

How do fossils provide evidence for evolution?

In this lesson, we are going to learn how fossils are formed and how they provide evidence for the theory of evolution. We will learn what the fossil record is and why there are parts missing from the record. In this lesson, you will need a piece of paper and a pencil.
