What I learned today

  1.  What has john Hammond done? John Hammond had created a park, full of dinosaurs. In which people could visit, and explore the world of the dinosaurs.
  2.  Where were the characters at the beginning of the extract? /

3 Why could the T-Rex grip the fence~? Because the power had shut off.

  1. What does Gennaro do when he sees the T-Rex?  Gennaro runs as fast as he could from the car, then manages to take shelter in an uncompleted structure. Not knowing that the door doesn’t lock.
  2. Why does Alan say, “Don’t move”. He says don’t move because he knows that if they do, the dinosaur will see them.
  3. These words are used for dramatic effect; building up tension is curial if the author wants the reader not to get bored and to carry on reading. These words build up tension while you are reading.
  4. The author builds up fear in the three paragraphs because, for instance he uses small sentences to build up suspense and tension. Not only does he do this but also uses a wide array of vocabulary such as quaking, vibrations and bolted.
  5. My first impression of Gennaro was disappointment in a way, as he abandoned his fellow friends to save himself. Though to his mistake as the building he went in, is unfinished plus the door doesn’t lock.
  6. How do you know that Dr Alan Grant knows something about dinosaurs? I can only assume that the title Dr might mean that Alan has some knowledge of dinosaurs. Not only had this but he mentioned that if you move the dinosaur will see you. Which also gives me the impression that he in fact does have some knowledge of the T-Rex?
  7. Why do you think Lex turned on the flashlight. There is no real evidence that says why she had switched the light on. But I believe that it was because the power had gone out, making all the lights in the park go out. That and a mixture of adrenaline and fear that stopped her from thinking things through.
