The Creators

Question time!

What is it you think the Creators are planning to do?

What will this new age of technology be like?

What do you think have been the most impressive buildings they have created in the history of the world so far?

Will the Creators enable people to exist in space, or to live on another planet? How will they make this possible?

How do you think people react when they see the Creators?

Who do you think controls them all?

Perfect picture!

Can you design your own tallest building in the world? Can it be taller and grander that the Burj Khalifa in Dubai?

Story starter!

Have you ever wondered how the Earth was created? Yes, yes, yes, we’ve all been told various theories like the ‘Big Bang’ by so-called ‘genius’ scientists with brilliant minds, but what if in reality it is much more simple?

Well, the truth is that they made the Earth. The Creators.

Look! There’s one of them now, placing his enormous booted foot in the middle of the river. Can you see how he holds his tape measure up against the skyscraper? He’s just making minor adjustments. Often, their work is far more impressive. Sometimes, it can even be destructive. It depends on their current plan, and their current mood. You see there’s not just one of them. Oh no! There are hundreds of them! The Creators move among us: planning, plotting, building, inventing.

When they built the Pyramids in Egypt thousands of years ago, that had seemed impressive. When they built the Colosseum in Rome, that had been another step forward. In modern times, the construction of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai had been a huge advancement. However, their most recent plans are to take the human race to an altogether new level of advancement. The Earth has seen nothing yet! A new age beckons. Everything is about to change…

Can you continue the story about the creators?

Sentence challenge!

Fronted adverbials

A fronted adverbial goes at the beginning of a sentence.

It describes the verb in the sentence.

It describes where, when and how.

E.g. During the day, they started to build.

By sunset, it was already 200 metres high.

Can you write your own sentence using a fronted adverbial?

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help? Could you add an adverb?

The Creator placed his foot in the water. He put his tape measure against the building. He was big.
