Question time!

What do you think will happen now that there is water?

Why do you think there was no water to begin with?

Is this a normal plant?

Where has this strange pipe come from? Who/what is controlling it?

What would happen to our world if there was no water?

Where does our water come from?

What makes water so precious? Is water more valuable than money?

.

Perfect picture!

Imagine what the plant will look like after it has grown. Draw or describe what you have imagined. It may not look like a normal plant…

Story starter!

It had not rained for years. Nothing ever grew here. The earth was a dry and dusty wasteland.

Things were about to change…

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a compound sentence, where a colon separates two independent clauses?

The first independent clause describes something and the second gives extra detail.

E.g. The earth was incredibly dry: it had not rained for over 100 years.

Sick sentences!

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

Water came out of the pipe. The plant began to grow.
