Task-Activity 2


Imagine that you have been asked to create your very own airline. What would you call it? Design a simple logo for your airline and post it on your blog. You must include a short explanation of your logo below the picture.

The 'P&B Airlines' mean Plane & Boat Airlines. You can go in a boat or a plan, it's your choice. The plan travels where ever you want. The boat also travels where ever want, it comes in a 'Cruise ship'.

When you get onto the airplane you will be asked to watch a short safety video that tells you how to stay safe when flying in a plane. Arguably, the best aiplane safety videos are produced by Air New Zealand.
Activity 1
Watch both of the current Air New Zealand safety videos. The first is a video that stars the All Blacks. The second is a video that stars Rhys Darby and Anna Faris (Hollywood actress).  Links for the videos are found below:
Air New Zealand Men In Black’ video
Air New ZealandSafety in Hollywood’ video

Once you have finished watching the videos, go to your blog and list three things that you need to do to stay safe on an airplane.
*Clip your set belt pull the side to buckle it tight and if the airplane stop flick the set belt to hop of.
* If a mask from overhead pull it down place it over your moth and nose pull the straps on each side then breath normal.
*Beside your set pull the life jacks and rip the the bag and put it on blow it up.

One of the most popular activities in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, is called ‘Bullfighting.’ It has been a part of Spanish culture for centuries. In bullfighting people called ‘toreros and ‘matadors’ fight with a live bull. The toreros do most of the fighting and, ultimately, capture the bull and tie it up. Once it has been caught, the matador joins the fight and kills the bull. Although most toreros and matadors are men, there are some women who also compete in the sport.
Not everyone supports bullfighting in Spain. In fact, about 30% of the population want it to be banned (stopped) completely. What do you think? On your blog tell us whether or not you think that bullfighting should be banned in Spain. Please provide, at least, two reasons to support your decision.

* I REALLY THINK THAT BULLFIGHTING SHOULD BE BANNED BECAUSE…………
FIRSTLY MEN'S AND WOMAN’S LIFE MATTER, THEY ARE CAUSING THEIR LIFE AWAY, WHAT HAPPENS IF THEIR CHILDREN WON’T HAVE DADS OR MOMS IN THEIR LIFE NO MORE JUST BECAUSE OF BULLFIGHTING.
SECONDLY I REALLY THINK THAT BULLFIGHTING IS A VERY DANGEROUS BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY CAN’T HANDLE THE BULL AND THE BULL KILLS HEAPS OF PEOPLE ESPECIALLY CHILDREN WHILE THEY ARE WATCHING!
THIRDLY I REALLY THINK THAT TORTURING THE BULL IS VERY DISGRACEFUL NOT FEELING GUILTY ABOUT A ANIMAL ESPECIAL A BULL IS VERY DISCUSSED!
