Example/Non Example
Is a void messy? Why or why not?
It's not messy because there is nothing in a void.
Which color is the most fluorescent at night? Why?
Pitch black, because that is usually the colour when it is dark.
Why are elderly people more vulnerable than children? Why?
Because it is harder for them to understand things and they don’t fight back.
Which is more interconnected; a vine or a dandelion? Why?
A dandelion because people like making DANDELION CROWNS!!!
Which is more seldom; the Olympics or an election in NZ? Why?
The olympics because it only happens in every 4 years and in an election it only happens every 2 years.

Word Relationships

How might each pair of words be connected?

Extended Writing
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.
In England we went into a museum and we came to this big tunnel that we had to walk through to get to the end of the museum. We stepped into the bridge/tunnel and on the cylinder walls it was like a galaxy because they had stuff on the walk that make it look like we were in outer space and they had stars that glow up and everything; So it felt like we were in a void.
