**Learning Engagements week 9 / Term Three **(6-10 March, 2017)

**Sharing the planet:**

- Pre-assessment- students (in groups of 3) will be asked to find pictures from magazines that pose threats to the environment. They will use the pictures to make a poster and answer the following questions for each picture:

What do you see in the picture?

How can this affect the environment?

What can be a possible solution for this?

Show and Tell of the poster

- The CI will be unlocked by the students and the key points of LOIs discussed
- K-W. Students will share their questions (what you want to know). Teacher will display these questions in the class and the class will refer to these questions throughout the unit.

Explanation text type of writing

- Use of present tense
- Use of action verbs to describe the events that a subject undergoes
- Use of connectives to link time sequences in a cause and effect sequence (first, then, after, finally, so, as a consequence)
