The IELTS diagram below was reported in the IELTS test in September 2016. It has been reproduced as accurately as possible. I have included measurements as it was reported that some measurements were available in the original.
The model answer will give you an idea of how to organise your writing task 1 report for these types of diagrams and how to report what you see.
I will upload a free pdf copy of the task and model answer on Friday for you to download.
Model Answer: IELTS Diagram 2016
The diagrams illustrate two types of stone cutting tools from three view points which were crafted by early man 1.4 million years ago and 80,000 years ago. Overall, the shape of the stones was similar in both periods but the tools from the later period were sharper,slimmer and made with more precision which shows the development of early man’s skills.
The stone cutting tools 1.4 million years ago were an irregular leaf shape with a base which measured 5 cm and narrowed at the tip. The tip, although pointed, was not sharp but blunt due to the lack of precision in making the tools. The method of carving was crude causing an irregular shape.
80,000 years ago, mankind had developed better skills and had perfected the cutting tool. By this time, the tool was more streamlined and measured only 3cm at the base. The sides of the tool were smoother and the tip of the tool was sharp, making it a more effective cutting tool.
