Writing Ideas

  • In the related clip below, we are introduced to a remarkable lady called Sam, who cares for numerous orphaned sloths. She urgently needs an assistant to look after ‘her’ babies. Write a job advertisement for this post, detailing exactly what the job will entail and the qualifications/skills that will be required by the successful applicant.
  • The sloth’s algae-covered coat proves very useful for the animal. Write an advertisement for sloths that might want to get their own algae coat. Remember to include selling points such as its eye-catching colour and its benefits for living in the rainforests.
  • Imagine you are the presenter in the main clip. You have spent the day in the rainforest watching one of your favourite animals. Write a diary entry recording what happened throughout your day.
