Explore the fictitious planet ' Pandora ' from the film Avatar by watching the clip below. ( Note : Although Avatar has a 12 certificate, this extract is age appropriate )
After watching once, watch again - this time making notes about the planet as you watch. You may find pausing the clip at these times helpful to write down your notes:
- 0:00- 0: 56 mins
- 0:56 - 2:04 mins
- 2:04 - 3:33 mins
- 3:33 - end
Based on the notes you have written , create a page, which might appear in a travel brochure, advertising a space trip to Pandora.
When writing your advertisement, consider these points:
- Have you included an enticing title which will draw the reader in ?
- Begin with an opening paragraph which gives an overview of Pandora and why they might want to visit.
- Include short sub- sections which describe what they might see if they took the trip.
- Don't forget to use persuasive features such as : appealing adjectives to describe the attractions, rhetorical questions, imperative verbs, e.g ' grab a ticket ' ' book now', facts and figures about Pandora.
Remember to keep checking through your work for spellings and punctuation.
