  • The living conditions

Make a plan of the key information you will include in your survival guide about these headings.

If you are working from the pack, you may want to think about weather/food etc. For your desert survival guide.

Cohesion

Cohesion in your writing is essential! What is the topic sentence of your paragraph? How are your points linked and supportive of the main idea?

Look at the practise paragraph and think about how cohesion is built throughout it.

Go back to your plan and add a topic sentence of each section of your survival guide.
