Informative Text - Procedure
Description of activity
Students write a procedure explaining how to make a model, a paper aeroplane, a photo frame or a snack.
Students have explored the different forms and features of informative texts. They have deconstructed texts to develop an understanding of how texts are structured to achieve a purpose and target a specific audience. Students have discussed the language necessary to explain a process. They were then asked to compose an informative text to explain a step-by-step process.
