Question time!

Why has Samuel Diggle designed the Zepper 2016? What global problems was he trying to solve?

Do you think these problems are real? Are we addressing them?

What do you think about the Zepper 2016? Could you see something like this in our skies?

Is it better or worse than what we already have?

What do you think the positives and negatives of the Zepper 2016 are?

Perfect picture!

Can you design your own new mode of transport? Think about how and why it is different to current types of transport.

Story starter!

READ ALL ABOUT IT: Genius Inventor Discovers New Way To Travel!

A new and innovative way to travel has this very week been invented by London based inventor, Samuel Diggle. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No – it’s the magnificent eco-friendly flying machine ‘Zepper 2016’!

For years, scientists and inventors have been striving to ‘scratch’ the current global ‘itch’ that is sustainable and eco-friendly energy. This could finally be it! Diggle’s new creation is not only cheap to construct, but relies solely upon natural energy sources! When interviewed yesterday morning on national television, Diggle delightedly spoke of his invention: “I believe I really am the most extraordinary man on the planet! My invention will change the way people travel, and change the way the world works. Sustainable energy, reduced carbon emissions and cleaner travel! I’m very proud of myself, and certainly can’t wait to see people using the Zepper 2016 in their everyday lives!”

Time will tell whether Diggle’s self-proclaimed brilliance is indeed brilliant, or whether it is, in fact, a load of ‘hot air’!

Can you write your own newspaper article about Samuel Diggle’s new invention?

Alternatively, you could write a persuasive leaflet or poster, advertising the Zepper 2015.

You could even write a balanced argument: Is the Zepper 2015 better for the World than current modes of transport?

Sentence challenge!

Write a rhetorical question about the Zepper beginning with each of the words below.

The Zepper 2016 has a balloon in the middle. It has a shiny ball at the bottom. At the top it has a turbine.
