Explanations are non fiction texts that tell why something happens or explain how a particular phenomenon occurs. These, like informational reports, contain formal language where the author's voice is less obvious and the material is factual. They are arranged in sections under headings with an introduction and a summarising conclusion. Diagrams, photographs, sketches, maps and boxed information may be present, accompanied by headings, captions and labels.
