Insulation



 Walt Inform
use a range of verbs (evaporate, melt, etc.) i think i did an ok job on that

use a variety of specific vocabulary (matter, solid, liquid, gas) i dont really know about that one

add significant detail to describe each part (examples, diagram, giff) i did a great job on that
vary sentence starters yes now i think i did a good job on that
organise my ideas into at least 5 paragraphs i dont think i did any of that at all

I'm going to talk about insulation. Have you ever seen a house being made and wondered why they put pink candy floss in the walls? Well those wondering days are over because I am going to tell you why.

The cotton candy ( not real candy, it's actually pink batts ) that they put in houses helps keep the house warm in winter and cold in summer, its called insulation. Insulation is something that keeps warmth or coldness in our clothes houses and other stuff, Insulation also helps live so we can carry on with life. Houses in the olden days didn't have pink bats and in a home when you've got the fire going the heat travels up through the roof so the had grass roofs or houses made of mud. Crazy right?but it's actually really clever because when dried is a good insulator because it keep warmth in on cold day and coldness in on a hot day. 

Do you know how space men keep warm in space? In the space mans space suit there is a cooling chamber and a warming chamber. From the chambers there are tubes going all over the space mans body. The tubes carry warm and cold liquid to keep the space man warm. 

Seals yous'e a different type of insulation and so do other Atlantic animal. This insulation is called blubber. Blubber is a strong layer of fat that atracts the sun to keep the seals warm. If we didn't have insulation we wouldn't be here, Because we would of died of hunger and being dehydrated or frozen to death.

  1. Good job Devin you had lots of detail in your post but I think you should put more about waves not just about the tar on the road but stuff like ( if a duck is on a pond it will make waves if it jumps up and down! the heat from the sun

  3. Devin, I really do enjoy reading your writing. You make sure that you keep the reader in mind when you write to make it entertaining for them whilst informing them of something. Keep an eye on those surface features like capital letters, spelling mistakes and spaces after fullstops to not lose any impact in your great writing.
