Over the next two weeks, our new unit of work will be on Explanation Texts! The ability to explain why something happens is a really important life skill. A hugely important part of growing up is asking ‘Why’ questions and finding out the answers!
We’ll start off our work on this genre by playing a game! Children are quite famous for asking ‘Why’ a lot, but in this game it is up to you to find the answers!
Watch the clip below to see how some of the teachers got on with their own ‘Why’ game!
Well hopefully that gives you the idea! Your answers to the Why questions don’t need to be sensible, they can be really silly! There are lots of Why questions below and your job is to choose some and come up with the craziest answers you can!
Your Challenge Choices:
Hot and Spicy: Answer 3 of the Why? questions.
Mega Hot: Answer 4 of the Why? questions.
Are You Nuts?!: Answer 5 of the Why? questions.
You can use the worksheet attached below if you would like to or you can just write straight into your Distance Learning book. It is important that you copy out the question too so I can see which question you’ve answered so crazily.
This could be a good game to play with your family! See who comes up with the funniest answer!
