100 word challenge: …Although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress…

A messed up story, by Hamish Talko

“TROLLS! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! TROLLS! HELP!” We all screamed as we ran away. We had been trying to steal the golden goose for her solid gold eggs… Oh wait, that’s another story. What we were actually doing was running away from a bunch of fierce trolls we found in the woods, at their bridge. The trolls were big and ugly and disgusting, but luckily they weren’t that fast. Ok, now I will switch to storyteller mode. Although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress… Oh, those poor little kids.

100 word challenge: … but how did he get up there?…

Yesterday I saw a superhero. Well, at least I think he was a superhero. He could fly! I was sure that one moment he was on he ground and the other he was on the roof! Anyway, I was walking down the street to the milk bar near my house when I saw a sheet of paper fly out of a stranger’s pocket. I grabbed it and ran after him. I gave it to him. “Thanks” He said. I said goodbye and walked off. But when I turned back around though, HE WAS UP ON THE ROOF OF A HOUSE! But how did he get up there?

 

 

 

BTN- Passing a bill

http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s3295573.htm

 

This video was about how a bill becomes a law. A bill is a suggested law. A bill needs to go through the house of representatives to be law. It also needs to go through the senate. Finally, it has to go through the governor- general, the Queen’s representative. Can the Governor- General say no to a law? How long does the whole process take? It is a very long process for a bill to become a law.

 

 

100 word challenge- Giant tea party

2

Goal: To get exactly 100 words (not including this).

 

There once were two very nice giants having a tea party together. They had giant teacups and teapots and they scooped up chunks of grass with the teacups and gulped it down in their giant mouths. Then came along mean bully Jack the giant slayer. He had a freeze gun. He froze the innocent giants with his freeze gun and then disintegrated them with his disintegrating gun, leaving only a teacup. Afterwards he told everyone that the giants had attacked him and that he had beaten them up. Now, you can still see the giant teacup, where the giants died.

BTN- Levels of government

http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4469199.htm

 

This video was about the three levels of government and what powers they have. There are three types of government; Federal, state/territory and local. Federal takes care of defense, trade, immigration, stuff with other countries, money, taxes, communications and the environment. State takes care of health, education, mining, agriculture, police, courts, roads, trains, law and order and public transport. Finally, local takes care of local roads, garbage, pets, local buildings and permits. Are state and federal both in parliament house? What does the house of representatives do? Federal has more power than state, but state has more power than local.

100 word challenge- …but what if I was in charge?…

1

I don’t really like school. It’s okay I guess, but it’s kinda boring and I could be doing way better things, like playing video games, eating nachos or playing soccer. I know we have to go to learn and stuff, but why couldn’t we just do school every second week? That would be WAYYYYYYYYYYYY better. But what if I was in charge? That would make school HEAPS more awesome. I’d do a Mexican food day so that we could raise enough money to buy everyone PS4s, and then everyone can make YouTube videos to keep earning money to get things like wide screen TVs and waterslides and chocolate fountains and stuff. School would ROCK!

100 word challenge: Ladder Goldfish Flew Brown Slowly

1

I was on a ladder cleaning the light bulbs when a gust of wind slowly blew into the room. It knocked over a vase, which set off a mouse trap I had put out to fix my mouse problem. The sound of the mouse trap going off frightened my ginger-brown cat, who flew across the room and knocked over my goldfish bowl, which shattered on the floor and left my poor goldfish flopping around. I picked him up and put him in a bowl of water. Geez! All this just because of a gust of wind!

This BTN was about how and why the Greeks came up with democracy. The ancient Greeks came up with democracy. Democracy comes from two Greek words; Demos- People and Kratos- Power or rule. Monarchy means that the country is ruled by a king or queen born into royalty. When did democracy change to representative democracy? What is a country that is in anarchy? Back in ancient Greece it was unfair if you were a slave or a woman.
