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. They reckon that they weren’t really ready and they think the same for a lot of other families. It’s important to have a plan and know it well in case of an emergency. Everyone should have a role around the house and you should practice it as a family. In the they both made 2 big mistakes whlen 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.
Understanding- I understand that being in a natural disaster is harder than it looks
Questions- why were the kids more prepared than the parents?
“3, 2, 1 go!” Everyone started to run I wasn’t far behind the 1st runner I would say only around 1 and a half meters away from her. I started to run faster and faster until somehow I ended up next to her we both ran at the same speed but still trying to beat eachother then as we ran past the crow everyone was cheering run do that gave me enough courage to run even faster. And then I couldn’t believe it I had just won the race. I fell to my knees and my friends throw water on me. It was awesome
Facts- Just to see the slightest bit of rain is enough to get people over there excited. Capetown is a city down the bottom of Africa, but for the last few years, they’ve been in a drought. But in the last few months, it’s gotten a whole lot worse. 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. That doesn’t give you much because of stuff like laundry, dishes, and toilets all that is already 27 liters. If day zero arrives then people will have to start to walking to collection points to get 25 liters of water. The restrictions have made a difference pushing day zero further away.
understanding- i understand that droughts can really effect people and animals
Question- where are they most common?
I was walking home from school one day and as I walked I came across a daffodil that sparked bright pink which was odd so I ran home to tell my mum and dad but while I was running home I came across a bridge and just so you know I hate hights so I stood there at one end of the bridge just waiting and thinking then a bike went past and nothing happened to the bike so I with my eyes closed ran across the bridge and I was fine so from then i decided to skip home
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. The rips are growing deeper and longer as the time passes. It’s growing at a rate of 2.5 centimeters. Rifts like these are the beginning of continental breakup so this theory is very plausible.
I understand they move because of the tectonic plates is why the drifts are moving
Could this be linked somehow to Austalia?
A while ago when my mum was in school she used to come across these spikey, little things that hang from trees and were alive all season round, she was always really curious about what they were. One day when my mum came across them again she found a heap on the ground and started to think what is in them. so she got a stick in one hand and jumped on them to break them, and there was hair in it. She got hair on her and it started to itch so she came up with a name itchy-bombs!
