Show and tell: eerie encounter

TLF ID L1281

Watch a short cartoon about a close encounter with an alien spaceship. Select language elements to create sentences and build a basic factual recount. Rearrange the elements to create the best word order in the sentences. Who was involved? What did they do? When, where or how did they do it? Add adverbs and adjectives to make the recount clearer and more scary. Combine simple sentences using conjunctions.
