Mars

October14

Watch the YouTube clip on colonizing Mars and post some of your thoughts in the blog. You may want to consider some of the following…

– Is it worthwhile for humans to try colonizing Mars or just a waste of time and money?
– Would you consider going to Mars in the future, even if it meant being in space for 6 months and possibly never making it back to Earth?
– What’s the first thing you would do if you went to Mars?
– If you could build something on Mars, what would it be?
– Do you think humans could live on Mars?

You don’t need to answer all or any of these questions. They are just some ideas and thoughts to help you.

Which board game is your favourite? Do you have a favourite board game?

Follow this link and view the BTN clip about board games

https://www.abc.net.au/btn/classroom/board-games/10534370

I have always loved Mouse Trap – I still love to play it with my friends. Chinese Checkers is also a favourite, I think it is a game of skill and you always have to think ahead.

Leave a quality comment below about a favourite board game. Is the board game based on skill or chance? How do you move around the board? Through a dice, answering questions or through picking up cards?

This week, try and answer a comment from a class member. Add to their comment – perhaps you have played the game, or have never played the game and want to ask a question about it!
