SURVIVAL ON EARTH

May2

Earth

This term, in Integrated Studies our topic is ‘Survival on Earth’. We started our unit with a WOW activity. First we watched an awesome episode of Man vs Wild. Next, we read a news article that told us that Bear Grylls had been FIRED and we could apply for his job. In order to apply for the job the ‘producers’ asked that we work with a team in order to identify items from different habitats and sort them into the correct habitats such as: the arctic, desert, rainforest and ocean habitats. We worked very quickly to sort everything and match it to its correct habitat. Many of us made the mistake of matching the penguin with the arctic habitat but we learnt a few interesting things during this activity like, penguins are only found in the antarctic, NOT the arctic. We also learnt that there isn’t always snow in the arctic. Something we also learnt after we completed our activity was that Bear Grylls was not actually fired and we weren’t able to apply for his job. ‘Oh well’ we thought, we really enjoyed this WOW activity anyways!!

What questions do you have, that you would like to learn about our topic ‘How to Survive on Earth?’

      Dear Soapie soaps,
      I think drinking your pee is kinda gross but it is still good for surviving! Pee can be useless in the public but it is useful if you are lost! (I’m just like LOL or ROFL O_O)

      Dear Ryan,
      This is a fantastic question that shows you are really thinking outside the box! You could also pose this question slightly different such as ‘since animals live in Antarctica’…’could humans survive living in Antarctica’ Or…. ‘how could humans survive living in Antarctica?’ 🙂 Perhaps you might want to use one of these questions as a basis for your personal research task that you will be starting next week. Then you will be able to explore and evaluate this question and share with the class! Super thinking Ry!! 🙂

      Miss M&M 🙂
