Have a read of the following paragraph:
On Thursday, my class had a school excursion to visit the Tasmanian Museum. There were lots of exhibits on all sorts of different things, but my favourite was the room about dinosaurs. There were lots of interesting things to look at because they had huge pictures painted on all the walls. However, the dinosaurs in the pictures looked a bit funny because they were all covered in feathers! The teacher explained that for a long time scientists thought dinosaurs were scaly like reptiles, but now they know some dinosaurs actually had feathers. The feathers made the dinosaurs look a bit like birds, and my teacher explained that this is because birds are descended from dinosaurs.
What type of text is this?
5 / 7
What parts of the paragraph helped you identify what type of text it was?
The paragraph you read was an informative-narrative text. You can tell because while it is telling you facts about dinosaurs, it’s also told from first person (“my class”, “my teacher”, “my favourite”). The text has characters (the teacher and the narrator), a setting (the museum) and a plot (going to the museum), which are elements of a narrative.
