Me and my friends were out in a small park. We were just goofing around when Jonathan said he would give 20 dollars to. anyone who ate the chili he was holding.

why would I do that?” Gregory said. I was going to do. I needed some milk so I ran to the store to get some milk, I was going to do it. I needed that money.

“I’ll do it,” I said confidently. Jonathan gave me the chili. I gulped it down. It didn’t seem so bad at first. Then my mouth starting burning. I drank all the milk.

“wheres my money?” I asked. He didn’t even have it…

100WC Flame Ice Lime Regularly clock

It was winter and was snowing outside. It was all normal, Jess sat up in her room, while lil’ John played video games. The clock was ticking in Jess’s room. She was regularly used to hearing this, but it still bothered her. The snow was a disgusting lime color.

“Eugh” she said aloud.The neighbors had let their dog free.

It suddenly occurred to her when the window started becoming ice.

“mom!” she called across the room.

“yes sweetie,” she replied.

“my window is icing!”

“that’s normal, come and relax near this fire I started.” Jess did. The fire was warm. And for once in a long time, she was relaxed.

the world economy was now nothing. There was no more friendship. Every man for themselves. I, Fred witstick, was not very lucky. I was forced to live in a tiny home on a mountain with my parents. But my parents never let me go near the edge. I didn’t know why. I could go to the shop, but not to look over the edge.

Pretty soon I snuck out of the house at night and looked over, so,as soon as I looked over, I saw the answer. They never let me look over because then I would know the dark truth.

There was no other world around the mountain…

Sally submit was casually reading in her bed. Suddenly, she heard a PING coming from the table. Her phone had gotten another notification. She stopped reading and went to her phone and read the message:

Congratulations! You won the new I phone X. That was the phone she always wanted! She clicked on the message, entered her password and was taken to a strange site. It said: Enter pass-code here! She was so exited she didn’t inspect the site and immediately entered her password.

Then, it said: HAHA I HOPE YOU BACKED UP YOUR DATA! But she did back up her data. …however, she couldn’t believe what she had done…

Usually, we hear about natural disasters on the news and we just think ‘Glad that’s not me!’. But some people, like me, want to know what it’s like to face one so two families were put to the test of surviving a fake disaster.

Facts: Green

Understandings: Red

Questions: Blue

There were two families that were put to face fake disasters so they could get an idea of what the real disaster is like and how they should react. The Matthews were one of thoughts families. They are a family of 4. There is Riley, Liam, Marg and Rod. In the second family Dale, Elliot, Bridget and Paul are going to go up against a serious cyclone while the Matthews face a bushfire.

As the Matthews receive their information about the bushfire, they start preparing the house. Rob and Liam fill up the bath before they go to the roof. Experts say going on roof is dangerous during the fire because you get trapped up there. They say they should be looking for updates. But soon small plumes of fire sprout up. they try to use little water sources, like the hose, to put out the fire. Suddenly, an alarm goes of in the house because their kitchen is on fire. They try to hide in the bathroom. Once again their now trapped. But fortunately the fire dies and the disaster is over. The Matthews are rewarded a medal in their bravery.

The other family (the BTN didn’t tell us ‘the other families’ sir name) had to battle a dangerous cyclone . They were told the danger and started setting up the house. Again, they started the bath. The kids knew what to do from things they might have done at school. They began bringing everything inside as heavy rain started. They were then told they had to evacuate and they drove away from the house. But the kids stopped Paul from driving through flood water. Once hearing this they decided to hide in the bathroom (why do both families think this?) until the disaster was over. It worked and they too were awarded a medal.

I understood that it is important to always be ready for a natural disaster and have a plan ready too.

I understood how much pressure there must be to be in a natural disaster.

What natural disaster should I be most prepared for?

I was walking on the huge bridge to cross the Colorado river. Then I noticed a sprinkle of rain. I started to walk off the bridge to avoid the rain.

Suddenly a group of pink daffodil started tugging at my shoe. i tried to swat them off thinking they would fly off, but the flowers grip only got tighter. Then, I noticed a man holding up an umbrella.

“Excuse me.” I called. He spun around.

“Pin-P-Pink? Daf-fo-dili?” He looked at me shocked.

“Could you cut them off?” I asked.

“Yes” He used the hook to pull them off.

“Thanks” I said. Then I realized I needed to find shelter…

Most people hear about floods and earthquakes and other natural disasters. Most of those people (aka me) think the disaster has ended once the news stops reporting it. But actually another disaster begins at that point. This disaster is called “disaster recovery”.

Facts: Red

Understandings: Green/lime

Questions: Blue

After a natural disaster is over a new disaster begins over clean cloths, food, water and, shelter. This is called “disaster recovery”.  Many people are in need of water, food, shelter and, clean clothes, so the rations of these supplies need to be reduced, otherwise the survivors will not be survivors any more.

lot’s of money is needed to buy water, food, and supplies. This doesn’t only mean the people hit by the disaster are affected. World wide fund raisers to afford the money for supplies. But even when you think that is a lot of money, you also need more to repair the damage.

But this process can take years and years to finish, even when this costs a ton of money, if everyone helps we can fully restore a country as if nothing happened. 

I understood how poor the conditions of the restoration must be ad how very poor people can handle this.

I understand how lucky I am out of everywhere in the world to live in one of the safest cities in one of the safest countries.

How do really poor countries, for instance, India, have the money and help to restore a state/country after a disaster, despite the fact they happen so often in India?

Fred really wanted the new ‘super duper mega man’ figurine in the stores. But the only problem was that it costed 145 dollars, so he would need a lot of money.

Fred’s only option was to be a delivery boy. He easily got the job and thought it was a easy job. Then he was assigned a delivery to 1637483 montermary street.

“Quite an address, isn’t it?” the delivery boss laughed. Fred wasn’t happy. The house was in Brazil! How was he meant to get there?! Fred couldn’t afford plane tickets! He quit the job without the toy, but he learnt one thing, DELIVERY ISN’T EASY.

Scientists have been alerted by a massive crack that has torn through the middle Africa. Scientists think that this is a sign that means Africa will split apart.

Facts: Red

Understandings: Green 

Questions: Blue

A giant crack has torn through Africa about 15 meters wide and 15 meters deep. This crack appeared in a field in the town of Kenya. The crack destroyed the field, swallowed cars, and damaged properties.

This is only the start of the event of Africa splitting apart. And scientists predict that it will take 15 million years. But if this is only the start and this much damaged has already happened, Africa will suffer a lot of damage over the next 15 million years.

This crack is predicted to be caused by the separation of  both the Somali plate and the Nubian Plate, or the African plate. They are separating at a slow rate of 2.5  centimeters a year.

I understood how much damage Africa has taken

I understood how poor Africa is and how poorly they will be able to prevent (by prevent I mean stop it from doing as much damage) the crack.

Why wasn’t the crack so important a few years ago when it was still big? And why is it a big thing now?
