Name of Text: Underground Explorers
W.A.L.T: I can use my growing wide range of academic and content-specific vocabulary to understand texts.
Void: an empty space or vacuum.
Fluorescent: able to give off visible light after being exposed to a source of heat, light, or other form of energy
Vulnerable: able to be hurt or injured
Interconnected: to connect or cause to be connected one to the other or others.
Seldom: not often; rarely.
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.
The plants in the garden are die during a frost
There were lots of different paths that joined each other
I made a shot from halfway while facing backwards.
We are still exploring outer space.
I can find my key ring easily in the dark.
How might each pair of words be connected?
Vulnerable is easier to get hurt and fluorescent is a dark place so they have a chance to get hurt or injured.
They are similar because void has a lot of space and interconnected is connected to something.
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.
