Drawing conclusions – It Used To Be Green Once
Last week we read a book called It Used to be Green Once, after we read the book we had to do the reading task. In this task we had to draw conclusions about the book, at the end we had to rate our working. I think I did a good job so my scores were either three or four. It was such a fun activity and I hope to do more like this next week, remember to leave a comment on my blog. Thank you!
Where Angels Fear to Tread
Where angels fear to tread
This task is about reading to find information and make inferences.
Read ‘Where angels fear to tread’, then answer the following questions.
|How old is Ngorongoro Crater?
The Ngorongoro Crater is two million years old, in the text it says “The crater is about two million years old.
|What word does the writer use in the middle of the story to indicate that he wasn’t scared of buffalo?
“Only” in the text it says “But they weren’t Lions ONLY Buffalo”
|c)||What would have been a useful item to take on the walk to the lodge?|
|Flashlight, so that they can see in the darkness, in the text it says “By now our eyes were used with darkness. In the text it also informs us that there was no moon and the stars were covered by the clouds.|
|d)||Explain how the saying in the final line, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, goes with the story.|
“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” refers to a person who behaves impulsively; they don’t think before reacting. The saying goes with the story because a group of people, Halina and the speaker travel to Africa before knowing very little about it e.g. dangers, animals, people.
“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” This phrase goes with the story because in the story we read that the author and halina waved their hand to buffalos not knowing that the were very dangerous, they were being very foolish to travel to africa without knowing anything about the animals and how dangerous they are, which was very foolish of them. They were very lucky that the buffalo hadn’t gotten upset, if not the situation would have gotten out of hand and turned into a big tragedy .
What two lessons could be gained from this story?
i. Think before you react
ii. Always be prepared
