Start with your introduction • Hooks for reports will typically start with interesting information to grab the reader. • The remaining introduction in a report will give the reader a preview of what they will read. • Consider what information will capture your reader’s interest. • Summarize the content
Example Introduction: Saguaros are common cacti mainly found in Arizona. They may live for more than 150 years, while growing 13.8 meters (45.3 ft) tall, with a girth of 3.1 meters (10 ft). All Saguaros differ in size and in the number of arms they have. Saguaros have adapted to limited rainfall and thrive in this arid region. If one were to view a Saguaro in late spring you might find them blooming gorgeous flowers and plumpy fruit.

Follow-up with your details and transition sentence Example Saguaro cacti often times grow arms, while each cacti can vary in the number of arms they have. The arms of a saguaro take 75 years to develop. The arms are grown to develop reproductive capacity. The number of arms observed to be found on a saguaro is dependent upon rain patterns. The greater amounts of rain in the area, the greater number of arms will be observed on the cacti.
