Parenthesis: red flying fox
The first sentence is missing punctuation marks to separate the parenthesis from the main sentence. Decide where they should go and prove to your partner how you know this.
Rewrite the second sentence, adding a parenthesis into the gap. Will you use commas, dashes or brackets? Does it make a difference which of these punctuation marks you use?
Using some of the words from the Word Wall, write your own scintillating sentence about the bats featured in the film clip. Your sentence must contain a parenthesis.
1) The little red flying fox faces a number of threats in the wild farmers, habitat loss and food scarcity but is not considered an endangered species.
