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!
In Hawaii, there is currently a volcano called Killer Wayer one of the most deadly volcanos there are/ever been. For the past couple of weeks, it has started to erupt again, and it is killing everything in its path. Some of the locals say it is moving faster than a turtle but still very slow so people have time to evacuate that part of Hawaii, and this volcano is one of the reasons Hawaii even exists. Killer Wayer is a hot spot volcano which means they magma has built up under the earth’s crust and when the pressure builds up it creates a volcano but since there is an ocean in its way it hardens and becomes a mountain and because the earth has something called tectonic plates on its surface when they move the mountain move with it and when that cycle repeats it soon will create land/islands and that is why Hawaii looks so weird because the magma hardened very weird. Killer Wayer has been erupting since 1983 (that’s a really long time) and this is the worst it has been in a long time. Some locals are more worried when the volcano stops it will create more steam which is pressure for the volcano and it might even EXPLOD!!!!!!!!!! People say it is scary but it is also really cool at the same time because you don’t see that every day.
I understand that volcanos are cool but can be one of the most deadly things on Earth.
Why is everyone so relaxed about it?
Goal: to do something most people can relate to.
the package finally came from IKEA it was my new desk I couldn’t wait to use it because they said it was already set up I just had to put a couple of the pieces together. (opened the box) wait IT’S A FLAT PACK!!!!!! noooo., I don’t know how to put a flat pack together because I didn’t understand the instructions. they were like “put piece 1 and 3 together with screw 6 and then……” they were too confusing so I called for back up my friends. It took us 2-4 hours to put the desk together but we did it in the end.
People of Hawaii have been running away as the Kilauea volcano, spilled lava and land fountains of toxic gases are going into the streets. The lava/volcano has already destroyed 26 homes. only a few people were allowed to go back and collect valuable items such as pets and medication during hours where the volcano was not very active. Those visits back were well timed as the night after more lava came out from fissures which are slits and holes in the earth. So far no one has died or been injured by this volcano but it had a strong magnitude of 6.9 it was has been the strongest earthquake since 1975. Most of the activity is happening in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens areas. Kilauea has one of the most active volcanoes in the world. It has been erupting constantly for 35 years. Most of their eruptions are effusive eruptions they flow continuously but don’t explode.
Understanding- I understand the effects of a volcano on the earth and the people.
Questions- I wonder how many earthquakes/volcano eruptions there have been?
Goal: to connect this prompt to another 100-word challenge.
Then as I walked to school I wondered, why was there nothing in the box it was really heavy. So when school was finished, I rushed home to have another look at that jewelry box before mum comes home. As I looked at the jewelry box again there was nothing in it, until I looked closer at it and found a secret compartment hidden in the jewelry box. It looked really weird it was like a tip from the vacuum, on the back of it said to use at night outside, so that is what I did. I was in the DESERT!!
