Duck Overboard Summary

Summarising the Main Idea

L.I. To look for keywords and phrases

Good readers notice key words.  Here are some clues to help you find key words:
  • Key words are directly connected to the topic
  • Key words are often repeated in the title and the text
  • A key word helps you to remember an important idea
Use this table to help you summarise the main ideas in a text in your own words.  It is important that you use your own words to show your understanding and to avoid plagiarism.  If you don’t know what some words mean, look them up.

Keywords from the title

Keywords from sub headings
Stupendous storm, Washed off of ship to sea,Rubber ducks,Hong kong,Tacoma,washington in the united states,January 1992, Arctic ice pack and the great britain.
New words I need to look up
Read the text and record key words/phrases that answer these questions:

Rubber ducks,stupendous storm, Washed off of ship to sea,spread around the world,survived by the mercy of elements,100$ reward.
Hong kong,Tacoma,Beach,Washington in the united states,Arctic ice pack,The great britain.
January 1992
Curtis Ebbesmeyer and Mr Ebbesmeyer
Stupendous storm,rubber ducks spread around the world.
Stupendous storm.

Now using the words you wrote down summarise the text in 25 words or less. In January 1992 a big storm struck from the sky and hit a boat and rubber ducks were sent of  to sea from Hong Kong.

L.I to identify the main ideas in a text.
This week I did the four w's and H and made my own summary within 25 or less words about Duck Overboard. I haven't wrote a lot about the story but its enough for the start. The rest is if you find one of these rubber ducks you will be rewarded with 100$. Some people have already found some so be quick and find one if your lucky!
