This is a fun interactive smart notebook resource which is ideal for prompting Year 6 students to revise the key features of a Recount. Students are prompted to be 'mini teachers' in critiquing a engaging example in which an Alien writes to his planet recounting his strange experience seeing a human object for the first time. There are then visual prompts to stimulate students own ideas for writing their own alien recount about another human object. This task is also ideal for descriptive short writing SAT practice.
