WALT; write a non chronological report

Remember to use:
  • an opening paragraph explain what your report is about.
  • headings and subheadings for the main body.
  • an closing paragraph, recapping on what you have written.
  • Pictures, maps etc with captions to explain what they are.
Remember to use fact not opinions.

A gorilla is a big monkey with very long arms and they can be fast. They need our protection because they are endangered.

What do Gorillas look like?
They have thick body with a large head and shiny black fur. They have huge muscles, can grow up to 6 feet tall and live up to 50 years old. They have human like hands they used to explore and investigate their habitat.
What do gorillas eat?
They need a lot of food and they are vegetarians  They eat a variety of plants like, wild celery, bamboo, thistles and stinging nettles.Mountain gorillas | Mother and baby. Sabyinyo group, Volcano… | Flickr
Where do they live?
They live in a dense forest and woodlands in Africa. They can live up 10,000 feet on the side of a mountain where it is cold and misty! And they moved around depending on how much food is in the area. Gorilla love to eat.
How do they behave?
Gorilla’s behaviour is like a family. They live in a troop and have a boss called a silverback. He decides where they eat, sleep and where they go. Their are lots of females and babies. They spend the day grooming each other and playing.

I think gorillas are amazing, don't you. And I think we can help them by leaving them alone and not killing them for there fur and hands.
