How old is Ngorongoro Crater?

The Ngorongoro crater is about 2 million years old.


What word does the writer use in the middle of the story to indicate that he wasn’t scared of buffalo?

The sentence “But they weren’t lions, only buffalos” shows that he isn’t scared of buffaloes and was relieved that there aren’t any lions. The word “Only” Is a strong word.

What would have been a useful item to take on the walk to the lodge?

A flashlight, Why? Because as in the text, it was night time for them so they needed light to see everywhere. And also there’s no moon for light.

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 would prove that halina was foolish enough to way out the buffaloes to clear their own pathway whilst the prudent people like the local man who knew about the animals and had recollection of the animals would back off of the wild animals.


What two lessons could be gained from this story?

i. Always find out what you’re heading for before you head for them.

ii. Don’t go to a different/foriegn country without learning tons about it

Sleeping lions! Statistical inquiry

Today I did a task about a statistical inquiry on the correlation between hours of sleep and the year groups. We had to go through these 5 phases call PPDAC (Problem, Plan, Data, Analyse and Conclusion.) After we finish we could do 3 extra special tasks that can relate to the task. This task took about 1 work week to finish off as the 5 phases were done daily.

Raro Recount: Maths/Ratio

Today I did a class maths group task on Ratio by filling up a plastic cup with raro and the raro to water ratio is 8 grams : 100 ml and each person in my group had to decide if the raro to water ratio was perfect, if there was more raro than water or if there was more water than raro. It was a quick and easy task and also after we did that we got to drink the raro. 🙂
