SLJ Planes, Trains and automobiles

SLJ Week 4 Day 19

Acivity 1
Let’s imagine that the neighbouring town was about 30 kilometres away. There are a number of beautiful villages and interesting things to see along the way. You have four options for this trip. You can take a:
  1. Train – 25 minute ride; No stops along the way; $12 for the trip (return)
  2. Bus – 45 minute ride; Two stops along the way to look at interesting villages; $8 for the trip (return)
  3. Scooter – 1 hour ride; Unlimited number of stops; $5 for the trip (return)
  4. Bicycle – 2 hour ride; Unlimited number of stops but there are some hills along the way; $1 (return)
On your blog, tell us which of these four options you would choose and why!

I would have to choose from other the scooter or bicycycle. Eventually I chose the Bicycle because

  1. I like riding bikes
  2. I have more time to do what I want to do
  3. Even know there are hills on the way it would fun on the way down from the hill. And it's better than not having any fun.
Activity 2

I picked the segway. The segway looks like a fun way to get around to places. Even though it may be a bit hard to get used too I think once you get used to it. It will come in handy.

Activity 3

Your task is to use DrawIsland tool to create your own digital footprint. The footprint must include your name and the name of the country that you are visiting. Otherwise, you can decorate it in any way that you want. It’s totally up to you! Once you have drawn your footprint, save it, and then upload it to your blog. Here is an example of my footprint:


  1. Hi Davarni,

    This is a really nice post. You have clearly thought carefully about the questions and provided good explanations for your choices of both the bicycle (Activity #1) and the Segway (Activity #2). I, too, love to bike and used to spend a great deal of time biking around. My favourite memories of biking are from when I was young and I would hop on my bike with my sister and we'd bike across town. We often biked to meet up with friends at the park or to get to our softball games. Leigh (my sister) and I played softball from the time that we were in Year 4 until we were in Year 10. We loved it!

    Do you play any sports? If so, what do you play?

    My son (Aronui) has just started to play touch rugby and he loves it! He's thinking about joining a basketball team as well. I played basketball for years so I'm hoping that he does it! I'd love to go and watch his games and cheer from the sidelines just like my parents did for me :)

  2. Hi Rachel,

    Last year at school there was a netball team I joined. Every Tuesday our year 6 and year 7 team taxied to AMI netball courts. That was the sport that I enjoyed playing.

    1. Hi Davarni,

      Wow, you guys are really lucky. The AMI netball courts are really nice! I hope that you're able to play again this year :)

  6. Hi Davarni!

    It is the last day of blogging, so I just wanted to say thanks for participating and doing your best. You've done a really good job and I hope you continue to do your best this year at school. Remember that the person ultimately responsible for your success is you, and from what I can see, you are very capable of becoming a very successful adult in a number of ways.
