Friday:  Design a skateboard P 27

Today you will be drawing a skateboard that could be used in your adventure story.  Make this as interesting as possible, annotate around it, describing its different features and explain what it can do. Remember, this will be a useful addition to your story, so add a much interesting detail as possible.  As an extension to this, you could create a poster that will persuade other people to buy the skateboard you have created.  Remember to add the persuasive techniques that we learnt about when we completed our Charlottes Web work.
