Homework Term 1-Week 1-2015

dogSenior Unit Homework (week 1, 2015)
This year we all vary in size. Your first homework task is to convince me of what is better, being small or being tall?
Think about:
– What would you like to be small or tall and why?
– What activities could you do if you were small or tall, that the other could not?
– What arguments can you make to convince me that being small or tall is definitely the best?

  1. I would want to be tall because I could reach things that are high up on a shelf at a shop or at home.
    If I was tall I could play basketball because would be easier to get a goal.
    If I was tall it wouldn’t matter it I was behind a crowd at a concert I could still be able to see over top of the people.

  2. I personally don’t think that being tall is better than being small is better than being tall or the other way around because they both have advantages and disadvantages depending for what you do. An example is, if you are playing netball, tall people have advantages in shooting because they are closer to the ring so they don’t have to push as hard to get it in but smaller people have advantages on the court in passing because they can easily pass the ball around a defender. If you are tall you can’t go through small spaces as easily as smaller people but small people can’t reach high places as well as taller people.

    That is why I think that none of them are better than the other. 🙂

  3. I would like to be small because It would be very hard to find me in hide and seek.
    The activities I could do that somebody can’t would be better at playing hide and seek, sneaking stuff better and hide in spots when it’s dinner time, breakfast time, lunch time or even when it is bed time!

    sorry I ran out of time to finish.

  4. What would you like to be small or tall and why?
    I would be small because if tall people were to bully me I would be able to fit in small places and they would not be able to bully me.
    What activities could you do if you were small or tall, that the other could not?
    tall people were to a game of tag tall people would not be able to see us because they are small people/ short people and they wont be able to see us.
    What arguments can you make to convince me that being small or tall is definitely the best?
    argument one: being small is fun you don’t get told that size doesn’t matter it’s the age that matter and we do the same thing as everyone dose follow the teachers instructions and help others out.
    argument two: some times I’d always wanted to be tall but after a few years being small I’ve am awesome the way I am and the best thing about being small when we hide no one has not found me and I say being small is cool.

  5. I would love to be small because I can hide in smaller places and my little legs will make me run faster I think. Being small would be better because you would have to get someone else to do the dishes and get you a drink because you can’t reach. If your tall you’re going to have to duck your head all the but there is one thing tall people can do better than short people they can defend really well and shoot goals in netball or basketball and they can also reach the bottom of the pool.

  6. What would you like to be small or tall and why? Big because you get over big obsticles easier.
    – What activities could you do if you were small or tall, that the other could not? Run faster with their long legs.
    – What arguments can you make to convince me that being small or tall is definitely the best? Because big dogs could be used as gaurd and police dogs and jump over things like fences.

  7. i would like to stay tall because you get to run and reach for tall things that you could not reach when you were little thats why i would like to be tall.
    you could do basketball football be in the olympics you could do lots of activities you could not do when you were short thats if you were short thats the things you could do when your tall.
    you will be able to get away from fights you jump over a fence just like that but it would take a long time for the short people jump over the fence thats my arguments.

  8. There are advantages to both being tall and being small. I would like to be tall because if I’m tall I don’t have to climb on chairs in order to be able to reach things off the top shelf. I wouldn’t have to ask others, I’d be big enough to do it myself. Plus, I wouldn’t have the height restrictions on rides like I do at the moment when I went to the Rye carnival over the holidays with my family.

    Being short however, others don’t really see you amongst the crowds of tall people, and you can’t see over peoples’ heads at the cinemas. Being short limits you with sports, as being a gymnast and a jockey are the only sports where being smaller is an advantage.
    I’m going to be tall anyway, so this is why I’d like to be tall rather than small.

    I hope you believe me that being taller is better than being small.

  9. What would you like to be small or tall and why?Tall because you can get things that are in high places more easier.
    What activities could you do if you were small or tall, that the other could no? You can do the hurdles better and faster.
    What arguments can you make to convince me that being small or tall is definitely the best? Because big dogs look scary and makes you fell safe from people who you don’t know.

  10. I think being big is better than being small because big dogs can be used for smelling were things are in the police chases and can run faster and longer.

    You can jump fences run faster do longer running.

    Big dogs can run faster leap fences smelling were things are in poice chases and run for a lot longer and bigger teeth to help them bite bad people.

  11. 1.I think being small is the best thing in your life because you can do things that taller people can’t. For instance, a small jack russel could beat a big labrodore because the jack russel legs are smaller.
    2.Small people can do much more things then big people: Small people can fit in place big people can’t. Also, you can duck under tall peoples legs in a game.
    3. Firstly,Being small is better than being tall because when your tall you always have to duck down to do things. Secondly, when you are small you can run faster then tall people. Lastly, when you are tall you always have to look down to talk to a little person.
