Create a fact file page about the deadly creature you designed yesterday.

Think about ensuring you have answered key questions for your reader such as;

Where does it live ?

What does it eat ?

Where and how does it hunt ?


You may wish to use these examples ( on pages 5 and 6 ) to help you with your layout from ' Lesser Spotted Animals ' by Martin Brown.
