Task 1: Find the Features!
First of all... what is a non-chronological report? It's a piece of writing that gives facts and information about a topic, and it isn't written in time order.
Can you think of any non-chronological reports you have read before? Perhaps in a book or a magazine?
Read through the non-chronological report below about sharks. Some of the features are labelled in yellow boxes. Then have a look a the report about guinea pigs and see if you can spot the key features!
Task 2: Match the Facts to the Subheadings
Non-chronological reports are split into paragraphs. Each paragraph tells you something different about the topic and they usually have subheadings.
Below are some subheadings from a non-chronological report but there's a problem... The facts that go with them are all jumbled up! Can you read each fact carefully and match it to the correct subheading?
Then, read the non-chronological report to see if you got them right!
Task 3: Be a Word Detective
Non-chronological reports usually have some technical words in them that are linked to the topic. For example, diet is a technical word for the food an animal eats. Habitat is a technical word for where an animal lives.
Can you go on a hunt for all of the technical words in the reports you have read? You could draw a circle around them or colour them in!
When you have found them all, have a go at using them to write your own super sentences!
