LO: To collect quotations
1) Read the prologue and zeppelin newspaper report from yesterday, again.
2) Imagine you are a reporter trying to find out what happened when the zeppelin crashed. You need to ask some witnesses about what they saw. Think of some questions you could ask some 'witnesses' (it doesn't matter who they are at this point). Use the document here as a guide to how to collect your questions.
4) Now, using what you know about the crash from reading the prologue, imagine what the witnesses could say when they answer your questions. Write their answers in the speech bubbles.
Extension:To take this further, you could record a little play with the witnesses being asked the questions to answer. Or, you could use toys as puppets to 'act' it out!
