confident_swan and encouraging_road
Well done to this week's winners who used their imaginations to think about what life in Pangaea would be like. The winners were very concise in their entries, sticking carefully to the 50 word limit. Encouraging_road thought about the geography of one super-continent, whereas confident_swan explored culture, politics and travel in a very small space. Good job!
WEEKLY COMPETITION #23:
It's time to warm up for the new Issue!
This week, we'd like you to think about how the Earth looked before there were separate continents. You might not have heard of it, but Pangaea is the name for the very large super-continent that once existed. It is thought that this huge land mass broke apart into the separate continents we have today, about 175 millions years ago.
This week, we'd like you to pretend that you are a citizen of Pangaea and tell us what it is like. We'd like you to write a MAXIMUM 50 word entry to describe any of these things:
~Benefits: Why do you like living on Pangaea?
~Problems: What's difficult about living on Pangaea?
~Daily life: What's it like to live in a super-continent like this?
Remember to use your imagination and transport yourself back in time.
Winners will be announced on Friday. Good luck!
