Make Predictions

School Journal Part 3 Number 2 2006  

Shark Day by Lani Young

WALT: I am learning to make predictions on the text by looking at the title, subtitles and the visual cues.

I predicted that this article was about some type of ceremony and sharks because in the pictures, I could see people sitting down together listening to a person speaking to them. That person looked like a leader or chief. The other picture has a shark feeding on something and some people are looking at it in surprise.

After reading the text, I found out that there was a ceremony where one of the characters became a chief.

The shark was feeding on pig guts that were thrown in the sea after the people killed a pig for the feast to welcome the new chief.
