BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Mysterious craters appeared in Siberia


 

Climate change and the melting of the permafrost are behind this strange phenomenon: the appearance of craters in Siberia. Do we still need to convince people that we have a serious problem on Planet Earth? So get down on it!! (What does this expression mean?)

 

 

And school is starting next week, so get down on it!!! 💪😉👍




 

Here are some articles for you to read about the issue:

 




 



Today we'll be doing a writing exercise: 'A biography' & a review of the whole unit with our 1º ESO students:

                                                            SPORTS TIME

(Cambridge University Press)  You will do the exercises  on pages 91-92.

 

Some activities for you to do:

  1. Permafrost is a permanently frozen layer below Earth’s surface which consists of soil, gravel, and sand. Permafrost can be found on land and below the ocean floor, where temperatures rarely rise above freezing. That is why permafrost is often found in Arctic regions such as Greenland, the U.S. state of Alaska, Russia, China, and Eastern Europe.

    There are two types of permafrost. One is from glacier ice, left over from the last Ice Age, and the other one is ice that has formed in the ground itself. An area can have continuous, discontinuous, sporadic, or isolated permafrost. The part of Russia known as Siberia has continuous permafrost, which means that there is a continuous sheet of frozen material.

    A Russian TV crew flying over the Siberian tundra this summer spotted a massive crater 30 meters (100 feet) deep and 20 meters wide. Although scientists link it to climate change, they are not sure exactly how the huge hole formed.

    Permafrost, which amounts to two-thirds of the Russian territory, is a huge natural reservoir of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and recent hot summers in the region may have played a role in creating these craters. Studies show that gases, mostly methane, can accumulate in the upper layers of permafrost and create pressure that is strong enough to create a crater.

    In conclusion, it is shown that global warming is causing an important impact on our planet due to the release of high quantities of CO2 of the permafrost melting. As the global temperature keeps rising, I think scientists must research the crater formation phenomenon urgently to prevent possible disasters.

  2. Climate change is affecting the earth a lot, so we have to take care of it. Some examples of how to take care of it are: do not throw garbage on the ground, if you have to go somewhere that is not very far, use the bicycle or walk. Another method would be to clean the beaches. Together we can do this, and may the planet be better, since he has done nothing to us. People do not care about climate change because they think it is silly but no, it is not, because if you think about it, someone in their family will experience it, and it will not be pleasant.
