100 word challenge: Cushion Scarlet Annoying Watered Violin


I hate violins. They are so high-pitched and squeaky and annoying. And they remind my of that fateful day. It was probably the unluckiest day in my entire life. Well, probably not the most unluckiest day in my entire life. The most unluckiest day in my entire life was when I spewed all over myself when I was on a roller-coaster and some went on the ride and stuffed up the system and the ride stopped and I didn’t have my seat-belt on and I flew out and broke my arm. Then on the way to the hospital the car ran out of fuel and we had to stop and get out. On the other side of the road was a cushion shop. We bought a scarlet one for me to rest my arm on while dad went and bought some petrol. Finally dad came back with petrol and some Gatorade for us all. I didn’t like mine though so I watered it onto the bushes. And that was the most unluckiest day of my life. The one about the violin was probably the second most unluckiest.

Yes! Yes! Yes! My delicious hamburger! I have waited years for this moment! Trapped in a wall, and now I’m finally free! But no, what’s this? NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! MY HAMBURGER! THE STUPID WITCH WHO TRAPPED ME IN THE WALL IS BACK! AND SHE’S FIRED A SPELL AT ME! THAT SAME SPELL! AND THE HAMBURGER IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER!

BTN: Violent toys



summary recalls insights questions

This video was about violent toys (mostly about Lego). You can make anything out of squares, except for circles. Lego was first invented in 1949 in Billund, Denmark. 30% of all Lego sets contain weapons. 40% of Lego catalogs show violent behavior. What was the first Lego set? What is the amount of pieces in the world’s biggest Lego set? I was surprised at how much violence and weapons there is in Lego.

BTN- Homework debate




summary recalls questions insights

This video was about the debate whether primary school kids should have homework or not. Some researchers say that homework doesn’t give kids better grades when they’re older. Some schools don’t have homework. Richard Walker wrote a book saying that less homework is better. How do the kids in schools that don’t have homework feel about homework? Do they want it or not? It would be pretty cool if you were in a school didn’t even have homework!

100 word challenge- …the slime dripped through…


I was slowly melting, turning into a liquid before my eyes. First my feet, now my legs! It felt like I had been in a swimming pool for a year and then had acid shot at me. And the really bad news was that I was standing on a drain! I had tried to run away from it but since my legs were melted I couldn’t move. This was all because of Dr. Dinkum! He blasted me with his weird gun and now I’m stuck here! But that was an hour ago. Geez, it’s taking a long time for me to melt all the way. Finally, as the slime dripped through the drain, I said my prayers and waved goodbye to the world. It was time for me to go.

BTN: Bringing back the planet Pluto




summary insights recalls questions  

This video was about scientists who are trying to get Pluto back. Pluto is smaller than a number of moons in the solar system, including ours. A group of scientists are trying to get Pluto back as a planet. They say that we should classify planets by their characteristics, not by their size or location. Why do they want to bring back Pluto? How many scientists were on the project? There is a lot more celestial bodies than I thought. (110)
