After looking at the features of information texts yesterday, we are going to look at subheadings today.
Subheadings help us find the information we want quickly and easily. For example, when looking at a recipe I want to know what INGREIDEINTS I need first, then the METHOD of how to cook the cake.
Today I want you to put these facts under the correct subheading. For some fun, it is all about hamsters.
The 3 subheadings are – Appearance, Habitat and Diet.
A Syrian is the biggest hamster. They live to about 3 years old. They do not like to share a cage with other hamsters!
- Hamsters need water bottles and running wheels in their cages.
- You can buy hamster food at pet shops.
- Hamster cages need to be cleaned every week.
- A Chinese hamster has a longer tail. It doesn’t mind sharing a cage but sometimes females can be aggressive to each other.
- Hamsters need to chew on a woodblock to keep their teeth short because their teeth never stop growing!
- Hamsters like to hide so it is a good idea to put a small house or box in the cage.
- Hamsters are usually kept in wire or plastic cages.
- Hamsters are quite small, around 6 inches in length.
- There are more than 25 species of hamsters ranging from the large European breed to the tiny dwarf hamsters
- Hamsters have stout bodies with short tails and small furry ears.
- The creatures store food within expandable pouches insides their cheeks that they bring back to their colonies to eat later.
You can write the whole sentences out under each subheading or write the subheading and then the numbers of that sentence.
