• An analysis of two literary elements:
o Nonfiction texts dont have a plot and they do not often have a setting. Make sure to select elements that the text actually has. For example, nonfiction text will have style/tone and POV. 
o Remember an analysis involves correctly naming the element, explaining what the element does for the text, providing examples to support your claim(s), and discussing why the author/illustrator might have used the element in this way.
• An analysis of two visual elements:
o Nonfiction text utilize all the same visual elements weve discussed. They just might use them for slightly different purposes than we are accustomed to seeing.
o Remember an analysis involves correctly naming the element, explaining what the element does for the text, providing examples to support your claim(s), and discussing why the author/illustrator might have used the element in this way.

• An analysis of the topic(s) we discussed in class:
o For this Goodreads, the elements from class will not line up with the literary elements or the visual elements. Instead, you need to explain what subgenre of nonfiction/informational text you read and how you know that this book is an example of that genre.

“Fossils Tell Of Long Ago” just became the most perfectly worded picture book about anything fossils -- through my eyes. This book carved out the uncovering truth about fossils such as where fossils come from and how they are created. What drew me to choosing this book was the enriching topic everyone always seems to be fascinated with. Since I have already gone through the stage in school where I learned about fossils, I already knew most of this information. Although I will have to say that with an open mind, this book gave me different perspectives on the information I already knew about fossils. This books setting starts out with kids at a museum learning about fossils, which was a great point of view to read this from since it makes the reader feel like they are there, with the kids learning at the same time. First, it begins to teach the reader how the big fish ate the little fish, therefore showing a dietary cycle. Then the kids take a look at the big fish, how it died, sank to the bottom floor, and got covered with layers upon layers of mud millions of years ago! They also learn about plants and animals that turn into fossils. It shows other clear examples of how fossils tell us about the past with factors like hardened amber and scientists working together to discover these fossils.

Towards the end of the book the kids go back to their classroom and decide to participate in a project where they create their own fossil by pressing their hands in clay. I thought this was such a neat project idea that I can incorporate into a fun classroom activity in the future.

My understanding has now changed quite a bit. I was shocked as to how the author Aliki, was able to pack so much real information into a small, 32 page picture book. For being for ages 5-9 I sure did get a great experience.

The tone of the book is very educational and informative, but keeps a fun vibe. What gives it this vibe is the times new roman font throughout the book. Every page seems like it could be said by a classroom teacher because of this traditional font. To me, the times new roman font screams “format font” since that is the font students are required to format essays in. The other font in the book also sets the tone as very childish yet fun. The other font only appears when the kids are speaking, and it appears in colored thought bubbles. This is the vibe this font radiates because of the care-free handwritten font.

The main characters are 6 children, 3 boys and 3 girls of all races. They add to the story with their colored thought bubbles too

What Do Fossils Tell Us About Our Earth? Day 2 of 2

Fossils give us information about how animals and plants lived in the past. Once people began to recognise that some fossils looked like living animals and plants, they gradually began to understand what they were. They realised they were actually the ancestors of today's plants and animals. Some fossils are easy to identify and look like plants and animals alive today. While we can easily recognise and identify some fossils, many fossils represent animals that no longer exist on Earth. We only know about extinct groups like dinosaurs, ammonites and trilobites through fossils. Some animals and plant are only known to us as fossils.
