23 Degrees

Still image for this video
Watch the short film 23 degrees. Why do you think it's called that?
Complete the activities below.

 

Monday

Whilst watching the video, write down all the similes and metaphors you hear. 

Can you now create your own similes and metaphors about the story?

 

e.g. The professor says, 'It's raining cats and dogs.' 

Metaphor: comparing two things by saying something is another thing. e.g. her hair was a pig-sty. 

Simile: comparing two things using 'like' or 'as'. e.g. he was as valiant as a knight. 

 

Tuesday

Write a setting description for the opening scene in the arctic. Use your senses to help you. What can you see, hear, feel, touch, smell? 

 

Wednesday

Create a newspaper article for the missing person! Think about what details you may need to include (description of character, last location seen, emotive language etc.). 

 

Thursday

Can you retell the story? You can use your work from Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to help. You may want to do it from a perspective of a character or just retell the events. It's your choice! You can share your writing on the blog if you want us to see it!

 

Friday
