Additional resources provide:
1) A concise and interesting model report on Egypt for learners to read, discuss, analyse, highlight and 'pull apart' - active learning.
2) An annotated report to provide the teacher with the main teaching points of the model report.
3) A colorful word mat with sentence starts and vocabulary to support informative and explanatory writing.
