This term for Extension I have been planning and creating a simulation for a problem I came up with that can be solved by a drone. The problem I came up with was how can we help beaches with shark safety using drones. This was fun because I got to learn a lot about a drones limitations and drones in general. I hope you learn something from this.


200 Word Challenge – Descriptive Language (T4 W2)

200 Word Challenge – Descriptive Language


Look at the picture below carefully and complete the table.

Check on the next page for Step 2.


Who is in the photo? A photographer and a rock climber
What is happening in the photo? A photographer is taking a photo of the climber climbing the mountain.
Where was the photo taken? On a mountain
What makes this exciting? The exciting part of this photo is that someone is up high in the sky with no visible harness. 
How do you think the characters feel? Climber: I think that the climber is a bit nervous because he could fall and die but I also think that he is ecstatic because he is high up and he probably has lots of experience . Photographer: I think that the photographer is less nervous than the climber because he has a harness but if he drops the camera it would break and the camera looks very expensive.


Write a 200 Word recount as either the CLIMBER or the PHOTOGRAPHER.


Remember; your challenge is to use DESCRIPTIVE Language to SHOW, not TELL your audience what is happening.


On an early Saturday morning I went climbing with a good friend. When I got to the mountain I put on a soft furry coat that was over an inch thick. He then handed me a camera and gave me a harness. We started to climb but after I took a look at him I saw him way higher than me and he was without a harness. So I started to climb faster to catch up to him and took a photo but since I was so focused on catching up to him I didn’t realise that we were in the snow of the mountain until I took the photo. I looked down and I realised how high up I was. I got a little nervous but then I remembered I was on a harness that was thick. I asked him where his harness was and he said he had lots of experience with this mountain and that’s why he’s in a thin singlet because apparently he was hot. I thought he was crazy and that he was freezing on the way down. I was so glad I was off of that mountain that I jumped up and down.
