Transcript Illustrations in Informational Texts— Let’s Practise!
Goopaw says get ready to practise identifying illustrations in informational texts. Remember, informational texts can include illustrations such as photographs, maps, diagrams and graphs! Here is an illustration from a science book. What illustration do you see here? We see a graph! This graph shows us the height of plants over time. This is useful if you're learning about plants and how long they take to grow! Let's look at this illustration from a geography book. What illustration do you see here? This is a map! It shows us the borders of countries in Europe. Here the map is labelled Europe and we can see the countries. Here is an illustration in a sports book. What illustration do you see here? We see a photograph! This photograph shows us a baseball stadium. The caption tells us it is a photograph of a baseball stadium! Here is the final illustration, which is about gardening. What illustration do you see here? This is a diagram! It shows us a tomato plant and has labels to show us the different parts of the tomato plant! This can be useful when identifying tomato plants, and learning when your tomatoes will be ready to harvest! Goopaw had so much fun practising with you today! See you next time!
