Today we are going to practise using the conjunction and to join two small sentences together.
The information we are going to use is all about elephants.
Read the statements below and decide which heading they would go under (description, habitat, diet or facts). If you can print off the statements stick them in their ‘chunks’ and write the headings.
Now use the new facts in their ‘clumps’ (description, habitat etc) write longer sentences which use and to join two short sentences together. We will use these facts tomorrow.
Eg. Elephants have two long tusks which they use to dig for food and they are herbivores.
