BTN- Don’t panic

This video was about two families that were put to the test to see what they would do in a natural disaster. One family was tested to see what they would do in a bushfire. The other was tested to see what they would do in a cyclone. They both didn’t really do the best thing, but they still did okay. Keeping a clear head when you’re under stress isn’t easy. Your brain’s designed to work differently when you feel fear. You stop focusing on details or listening to instructions. Did they actually burn their kitchen down? Why would they go to the bathroom? I reckon they would act differently if it was a real life situation.

100 word challenge: …however, she couldn’t believe what she had done…

She had saved up, for years and years, and purchased a pokemon pack, which cost $6.50. You could perhaps say she was poor, which she probably was. She took a deep breath and peeled the foil off the back. Without seeing any of the cards, she took the cards out of the packet and put them face down into her hand. She put the four cards from the back to the front, and slowly turned the ten cards around. She got… bad card, bad card, bad card, bad card, bad card, okay card, good card, bad card, bad card, and…

“OH MY GOD! THE PIKACHU ILLUSTRATOR CARD! IT’S WORTH 100,000 DOLLARS! I’M RICH!”

She screamed. She was so happy, however, she couldn’t believe what she had just done.

BTN: Cape Town Water Crisis

http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4804140.htm

 

This video was about the Cape Town Water Crisis. A huge drought that has been going on for a couple of years is happening right now in Cape Town in South Africa. They are only allowed 50 litres of water a day, which isn’t much. If they hit June the 4th, which they are calling day zero, all of the taps will be turned off, and they must go to certain places guarded by security to get a daily ration of just 25 litres. Why can’t they just travel to another country and get water? Why can’t they just move to another country that has water? What will happen after day zero? Even though 50 litres sounds like a lot, it’s actually not much for 1 day.

Herald sun BTN- Africa is splitting in half!

This story was about a crack in Africa that has been proven to mean that Africa is splitting in half. The African continent is splitting up. Geologists believe than in millions of years the African continent will have been fully split up. It was first exposed after a flood in Kenya, where there is the huge rip (the crack). The great rift splits Africa into two plates. Africa is still splitting apart, even as we speak. Will Africa be two separate continents after it has split up? Will other countries start splitting up as well? The continents did actually use to be one big piece, and countries are still splitting up even now.

100 word challenge: Two big spiky balls are taking over the world!

Writing goal: To create a vivid scene.

Two green balls. They are spiky, big and… horrible. They cast shadows over the land. Hundreds of metres tall, they crush cars and flatten buses as they roll down the hill. So far everything we’ve done to try to stop them hasn’t worked… and they are heading towards the nuclear power plant, which will just make them bigger. Soon they will get so big they will crush the earth, and destroy every living thing on it, and therefore causing… the apocalypse. Now I say goodbye, because the two big spiky balls are about to crush meeeee……
