WALT describe a character

Similarities and differences

As part of our inquiry we have been looking at 'taonga.'   To help us understand this concept better we decided to research two cultural objects and analyse the similarities and differences.

Similarity: a similar feature                                                
Difference: a point or way that something is not the same
