This time it is your turn, today you are going to plan a recount of that same video but you are going to be the EXPLORER!

The document below is a template of the plan/storyboard I would like you to complete. You can either copy it into your books or print out the sheet. Complete the plan/story board writing everything that you think the exploring is thinking, saying or doing in that part of the story. Write in the boxes next to each picture, this is an example of the first box:

Use this planning sheet:
