Easter Holiday Homework

A biography is a book that describes the life of someone famous. It is the true story of a person’s life. The person you choose may be living or dead and may be famous for any reason (sports personality, president, business, arts, sciences, or they have made a difference in the world in some way).  

For this Biography Book Report blog entry, you will read a biography of your choice. You can choose a paper book of your choice or you can choose one from the following resources – 

1) Epic books – http://www.getepic.com

2) Tumblebooks – https://www.tumblebooklibrary.com/auto_login.aspx?u=hkbaptist&p=reads

Here are some guidelines for your blog entry –

Paragraph 1: Describe when and where they were born. Then, describe their CHILDHOOD.

Paragraph 2: Describe their life events, education, and profession. (15 years of age to adulthood).

Paragraph 3: Describe WHAT made them famous, the EFFECT of what they did/still do, and WHY it is still important today.

Do we control technology or does technology control us?

Technology is almost everywhere we look, since we are surrounded by things produced by art or craft. In general, it seems that anything human beings do that is not natural involves us in some way with technology. Below are a series of observations about technology in the world today. Do you think each observation is ‘True’ or ‘False’? Write a few paragraphs (don’t just answer yes/no for each prompt).

1. Cars will eventually be made so that they will not cause excessive harm to the environment.

2. Farmers will determine ways to feed the world’s growing population and eliminate hunger.

3. Human beings can stop doing research on computer technology whenever they decide it is to their advantage to do so.

4. Global warming is not a serious problem.

5. Technology will use up so many natural resources that it will harm the environment.

6. There are more advantages than disadvantages of technology.

7. People do not rely too much on technology.

8. Life is better now than 100 years ago because of technology.

We’d love to hear your views.

Do some research, take some time to think and answer the following questions based on your experience.

  • What’s the meaning behind red packets during the Chinese New Year? Why do we have this tradition?
  • After we take out the money, the red packets are usually thrown away. Do you have some good ways to reuse them?
  • Who gets your red packet money? If it’s your parents, what do they do with it? If it’s you, how do you manage it?
  • What do you think are the wisest and smartest ways to spend it?
