Fragmented “… a great fragmented light.”

LO 6.1.3

From the list below, highlight the words that best describe the mantis in this story.

Proud*creative*dreamer*short-tempered*lazy*pessimistic* determined*patient

The mantis could not catch the moon by jumping at it, so he thought of a couple of other plans. Make a sketch of each as labelled below.

  • Noose
  • Stake
  • Djani

Explain what happened at the waterhole when the mantis could not pry the moon out of the water.

“But the children of the mantis live there still, brown and green as the leaves that change with the seasons. And they sit, their forelegs held up in praise of the moon …”

Why do they do that?

Memorandum

FLY ME TO THE MOON

Two astronauts from Earth landed on a strange planet. The weird creatures who lived there came out to meet them. The spacewomen were a bit frightened .

But the creatures were very friendly . They took the women to their home . They gave them some food. The women laughed when they saw the creatures eating. They used two knives and two forks at once! They ate two different kinds of food at the same time. The space-women had brought some gifts from Earth. When they gave them to the creatures they were puzzled. The explorers had brought some gloves and some pullovers. The gloves were no use because the creatures only had four fingers on each hand. The pullovers were useless because all the creatures had four arms.

One of the creatures went back to Earth with the spacewomen. The creature took part in the Olympic Games. The crowd was amazed when they saw the creature throw a javelin, a shot, a hammer and discuss all at the same time! The creature won four gold medals.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.

yes that's correct
