As we follow along and read the adventures about Tom on his bike we also follow what’s happening with the author Alastair Humphreys as he rows across the Atlantic Ocean in his newest adventure. We are now in Ethiopia as we continue to read about his bike trip to the end of Africa. As we read we discuss different culture values and beliefs from different areas and we are following his trip with our Atlases. His diary pages give us information about different places.
Why would a boy on a bike with his supplies be considered rich in one country and poor in another?
Why do two people who work near each other but are from different countries not talk until Tom comes through the border?
When will Alastair Humphreys and his crew arrive on land again? See where he is and read about the author’s other adventures.
As you can see reading takes place even in the Atlantic Ocean. Fishing we’d expect in the water. We think some things would be important to have on this trip. What else would they really need? We are getting ready for our economics unit in a few weeks and we will disucss needs and wants. They may want other things but are they really needed? What do you think the top 10 things they should have with them in the Atlantic Ocean? Will the weather be stormy or fair? Wll it be hot or cold? How will this change what they will need with them?
- A compass
- A map
- something to sleep on
We think you would be hungry, sunburnt, wet and tired.
