Painting with music! (SLJ Teaser 4)

For this task, I decided that my inspirational song was going to be “Lift me up” By Rihanna.

This song was originally made to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman’s passing. So, I decided to take this inspiration and make something lovely but also sad out of it. My painting basically symbolizes peace,love and pride. Anyways, this was really fun to do and it was really sad to see him go.

a)

 Ngorongoro Crater was about two million years old.

 

b)

 

What word does the writer use in the middle of the story to indicate that he wasn’t scared of buffalo?

 

The word that proves that he wasn’t scared was Only. You can find proof in the text, “But they weren’t lions, only a buffalo.”

 

c) What would have been a useful item to take on the walk to the lodge?
  Flashlight/Torch, so he can see in the dark since there was barely any light showing. In this text it says, “By now our eyes were used to the darkness.”

________________________________________________________________________

 

d) Explain how the saying in the final line, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, goes with the story.
   

“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” refers to a person who behaves impulsively; they don’t think before reacting. The saying goes with the story because a group of people, Halina and the speaker travel to Africa before knowing very little about it e.g. dangers, animals, people.

________________________________________________________________________

This phrase “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” connects with this story because this person was a fool and waved his hand at the buffalo not knowing that they are one of Africa’s most dangerous animals. Everybody that was a local, knew that buffalo’s were very dangerous and they knew not to stand in their way or else. Now they know to bring a flashlight at night.

e) What two lessons could be gained from this story?       i. Always be prepared for everything that stands in your way.

       Ii. Never react to an animal that you see in Africa.
