Creating a Video 
 
For this task, we have decided to change the pace of remote learning so that 
you can create a video at home that has some form of voice recording. This 
video should only be 2-3 minutes long and have your voice recorded 
throughout your creation. We understand that not everyone will want to make 
an appearance in their video so we have given you multiple options to choose 
from that will have your voice throughout the video. Here are some ideas that 
we have come up with for you, but if you have a different idea, ask your 
teachers to see if they think that it is appropriate.  

 
Video Diary – What a day of remote learning looks like at your house. 

 
Tutorial – An instructional video of how to do something e.g., drawing, 
dancing, and cooking.  

 
Documentary – Tell some interesting facts about one of your favourite 
topics.  

 
Advertisement – Try and sell an item or object to your viewers.  

 
Read Aloud – Record yourself reading one of your favourite books. 

 
Scouting Video – Show off your sporting skills on video.  
 
We will give you ample time to complete this task and it will be submitted via 
OneNote by inserting it into _____________, the due date will be _________ 
We are looking forward to see what you create, make sure however that what 
you produce isn’t offensive or made to make fun of or humiliate someone else. 
We have also attached a video made by Mr. M of what he has done during the 
holidays and quarantine. Happy recording!!

Statistics 
Statistics are used to support your argument 
with real-life figures from relevant studies. 
They provide convincing evidence. 
Ocean Crusaders

Statistics  - statistics are facts that include numbers. Use a statistic in your example and supporting details.  

Firstly, everyone should own a dog because they need exercise.  For instance, if you have a dog you will have to walk your dog every day, which means that you will be even healthier. Dog owners walk an average of  300 minutes per week, while non-dog owners walk an average of 168 minutes.  

Task 2: Find at least one of the statistics below that matches one of your arguments from last week’s persuasive and add it in. (Feel free to change the wording) 

  • 61% of Australian households own pets.  
  • Dog owners walk an average of 300 minutes per week, while non-dog owners walk an average of 168 minutes. 
  •  Pet owners are 34% more likely to fit in exercise than non-pet owners. 
  • Australian households spend over $13billion dollars on pets. 
  • The average pet costs $13,000 over the course of its lifetime. 
  • 98% of pet owners consider their pet to be a member of the family. 
  • 74% of pet owners reported mental health improvements from owning a pet. 
  • Pet owners are 60% more likely than non-pet owners to get to know new people in their neighbourhoods. 
  • 72% of pet owners believe that their pets can understand them like no human could. 
  • Only 50% of pet owners admit they regularly walk their dogs 
  • 78% of people that don’t have pets say that is because they do not have the time to look after them 
  • The RSPCA cares for 135,000 animals a year
