Example/Non Example
Is a void messy? Why or why not?
No because it’s an empty area so there should be no mess.
Which color is the most fluorescent at night? Why?
Neon colours  Road signs eg. Yellow because you can easily see them in the dark.
Why are elderly people more vulnerable than children? Why?
Because  they are not in a stable or strong position because they are older than us and we have more energy.
Which is more interconnected; a vine or a dandelion? Why?
Vine’s are connected to plants so that’s why it’s interconnected.
Which is more seldom; the Olympics or an election in NZ? Why?
Olympics because elections  happen every three years and olympics  happen every four years.

Word Relationships

How might each pair of words be connected?
Vulnerable/Fluorescent
Vulnerable is easier to get hurt and fluorescent is a dark place so they have a chance to get hurt or injured.
Void/interconnected
They are similar because void has a lot of space and interconnected is connected to something.

Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
Getting a shot in from out of the semicircle for netball. That was rare well for me I hardly ever get shots in for netball especially out of the semicircle.
