When we wear our WHITE HAT we are thinking about information and facts. Read the information below. It is about the Loch Ness Monster. Highlight all the important facts (KEYWORDS- not sentences) with the highlighter pen. Use the Graphic Organiser to record your keywords.

Loch Ness Monster
The Loch Ness Monster, or “Nessie” as she is often called, is believed to be living in Scotland's Loch (Lake) Ness. Loch Ness is located in the North of Scotland. It is a large lake (over 800 feet deep) with underwater caves. For many years it has been supposed that there is a large dinosaur-like "monster" living in Loch Ness. Over the past 100 years many people have reported seeing a dinosaur-type monster in the Loch. Some blurred photos have been taken of the monster. Most of the Nessie witnesses describe something with two humps, a tail, and a snakelike head. A V-shape was often mentioned, as well as a "gaping red mouth" and horns or antennae on the top of the creature's head. There are numerous theories as to Nessie's identity, including a snakelike whale, a type of long-necked aquatic seal, giant eels, walruses, floating mats of plants, giant molluscs, otters, mirages, and diving birds, but many lake monster researchers seem to favour the plesiosaur theory. Most scientists believe that these marine reptiles have been extinct for 60-70 million years, but others think it possible that after the last Ice Age the Loch may have been connected to the sea, and some of these dinosaurs may have been stranded.
