Seven Worlds, One Planet: Snub-nosed Monkeys Comprehension!

snub-nosed monkey

In one of the most exciting and stunning sequences from the Seven Worlds, One Planet episode on Asia, Sir David Attenborough followed a group of snub-nosed monkeys as they battled to survive a terrible winter. Whilst barely surviving on bark and moss, a rival group arrive to do battle for the food and territory!

The clip is full of drama and the narration jam-packed with rich language like ‘territory,’ ‘wretchedly,’ ‘sustain’ and ‘fray.’ It makes for an exciting clip to watch and unpick in the classroom and I shall be using this as a comprehension lesson with my class.

You can download the comprehension, which includes the script as read by Sir Dave and a whopping 25 questions, for FREE, here…
