Model of a Descriptive Report (basic Information Report)

Here is a model of a descriptive report which I will be using with students from R-2 to examine the structure and language features of this type of text. If you have some good models you would like to share, let me know and I can add them here to share.

 

Title Red-bellied piranha

General statement

Entity classification

The red-bellied piranha is a type of fish that lives in the Amazon River.

Description

Features

It has an orange belly, grey back, and very sharp teeth set in strong jaws. It grows up to 33 centimetres in length.

Diet

Behaviour

The red-bellied piranha hunts in shoals of 20-30 fish. They feed on a diet of fish, insects, snails, plants, and river animals. They hide in vegetation in order to ambush prey, and they also chase prey and scavenge for food. The younger, smaller fish hunt by day, and the older, bigger fish hunt at dawn and dusk.
Reproduction The female lays a clutch of up to 1 000 eggs.
Life expectancy Piranhas can live for about 100 years.
