Using the Glossary and Contents page

We've been learning how (and where) to look for definitions in the non-fictin texts that we read.  We've learnt that the glossary is often in the back of non-fiction books and helps us understand the meanings of challenging words.

Today we were set the challenge of reading the book using the contents page - we flicked backwards and forwards to the contents page and read the pages that interested us the most first.  We also used the glossary to help us understand difficult words.

We're non-fiction superstars!
