Explanation Writing

Do you want to get skin cancer? If not, you need to wear a fully covered hat, sunscreen and sometimes you may need to wear sunglasses.

A hat is a head covering that can be worn for protection against the elements, especially the sun. A fully covered hat can protect your head and your face from the sun. You need a proper hat to go into the sunlight, with a full brem. The kind of hat that is bad for you is a visor because the top of your head is not covered.

Sunscreen is really good for protecting you from the sun at all times including when you go for a swim. Sunscreen is a lotion, spray or gel that you can rub on to your skin and reflects the sun of you. By using sunscreen is adding an extra layer on to you to stop you from getting skin cancer.

Sunglasses are a form of protective eyewear thats was created to protect you eyes from the sun. From 12 o’clock to 2 o’clock it would be a good idea to wear sunglasses because at this time of day it is really hot. If you do not wear sunglasses you can become blind from the brightness of the day light.

Wearing sunscreen, hat and sunglasses can save you from the sun and keep you safe incase you get blind or get skin cancer.


  1. Cyrus,
    My name is Andrea, and I am a student at the University of South Alabama. I think you did a fantastic job demonstrating explanation writing. You described what each item is that protects you from the sun is perfectly. Can you think of anything else that protects you from the sun? (Maybe a type of clothing.)
