So, Wednesday, we went to the Grade 9 civics simulation activity for one hour, we went with 5C, they grouped us into colour groups, I was the red group, so we went to our first activity.
First, we went to crime, they asked us what we thought crime was about, we mainly said murder, or stealing, and then we played a little game. The game was betting, we each got some fake money, we betted some money and tried to guess which of the three cups had the ball under it, but then each cup had a ball under it, so it was impossible to win.
The second activity we went to was a natural disaster board game; your objective is to get to the mountain, where you will be safe. So you get a character, and you have a family, each turn there is a natural disaster, and you get to move 3 steps, fake little coins are scattered all over the board, so for each coin, you can buy 1 thing to prevent the natural disaster from killing a member in your family. You can only lose if: 1. All your family members get killed. 2. You are lesser than 5 steps to the mountain, because the mountain is a volcano, which kills all your members. You can escape by: 1. you’re not 5 steps within the mountain. 2. You have a donkey, where you can escape, but there is only one donkey. So in the end, the person that got the donkey won!
Third activity, we went to the forum, we each find a piece of paper and read it, the piece of paper tells you who you are, there are around 3 rounds, when each round ends you have to pay the guy at the top…you need to have money, a food cart, and a health card, you have to buy the food cart, and the health card, for money from the people that have those…and that’s how the game works! I guess…
I think it was great, and I want to do it again!
Ok…so the next thing! We had a puberty talk, so, all the boys got divided into 2 groups, so one group goes to one room, and the other group goes to the other room! We talked about how we become into an adult! How we change! Well, you know (I hope)! And we also talked a little bit about girls, but yeah…that mostly covers everything…so…to the next paragraph!
American football! So, we started the lesion by warming up (as usual…), then we practiced some skills (as usual…), then we played capture the flag (Not, as usual!)?! Actually, it’s similar to capture the flag, the only changes are that each team has 2 footballs, and you win by having all 4 footballs! You can also pass backwards to the person that’s on your team, while you are both running back to your side?…So yeah, in the end the score was 1-0, so we won!
