Fact- 2 families in new south wale wher asked to participate in an experiment, it would test their skills and would prepare them If disaster ever struck. In some situations the kids were smarter than the adults, as they stopped them from making huge mistakes. It could have been because they had more experience or were familar with the fact of a natural disaster from school. In the they both made 2 big mistakes when fire/flood waters , got to either off the family’s homes they tried to hide in a room, which means they can’t see what’s happening in the rest of the house.

Question- Why were the parents so frazzled? Which family prepared the best?

Understanding-I now understand that being in a natural disaster of any kind is much harder than it looks.

100wc (…however, she couldn’t believe what she had done)

100wc (…however, she couldn’t believe what she had done)

Goal- to write from 3rd person

 

June carefully weaved her way through the busy school halls.  “Well, well, well who do we have here, June the hoon!” said Aza.

“I have to get to biology,”  June squeaked.  Then it was as though time stopped and calm oura entered the room along with a strangely calming ghostlike figure.

‘You,  my dear are in need of a wish, you only have one,  don’t waste it,’  then in a flash things returned back to normal. She was left staring down Aza.

‘I wish you would just leave me alone!’ It was her wish, however, she couldn’t believe what she had done Aza… was… gone….

BTN (Cape Town water crisis)

BTN (Cape Town water crisis)

FACTS- As humans we depend on water, and for most we don’t think about how much we use. For people in Cape Town (experiencing a seemingly endless drought) water is scarce. They only get 50 litres a day that’s barely enough to get you through the day.

  • dishes and laundry, 18 litres a day.
  • 90 second shower, 15 litres.
  • 1 toilet flush, 9 litres.
  • Washing your hands, 3 litres.
  • Cooking, 2 litres.
  • Drinking water, 2 litres.
  • 1 dog bowl, 1 litre.

Thats 50 litres gone and if want to have everyday luxuries like a long shower or even going to the toilet more than once a day you’ll be in a predicament.

QUESTION-Who controls the water? Do certain people- like their Prime minister get more water?  

UNDERSTANDINGS -I now understand that we shouldn’t take water for granted. And in some countries they barely have enough water to do what we consider day to day things.

1oowc ( 5 word prompt)

GOAL- to describe well.

As an widely known and established pastry chef, I was know for my extravagant and dramatic cakes. My current master piece was close to finished, I was just putting on final touches and getting it ready to send off. It was an adorable daffodil yellow, and was lightly sprinkled in petite pink sprinkles. It was of huge importance that it was flawless, I was sending it to a prestigious critic and I was sure she would notice the finest of details. But the most vital and consequential step was getting my masterpiece over the large and poorly cared for bridge.

BTN (is Africa going to split)

BTN (is Africa going to split)

Facts- Africa’s recent cracks suggests alarming news- Africa may be starting to split into two. After heavy rainfall huge cracks appeared, supporting the fact that due to the huge fault line through the middle it may split into two in 50-100 million years. It’s more than 15 meters deep and 15 meters wide. It’s growing at a rate of 2.5 centimetres. Rifts like these are the beginning of continental breakup so this theory is very plausible. 

Questions- Are there any rifts like this in Australia?  Could Australia break apart?

Understanding- I know understand that continental drift is always happening and that fault lines and tectonic plates are very connected to continental drift.
