For today’s lesson, please use the following picture and story starter for your tasks today.

For the last few days, they had been falling from the sky. Nobody knew where they had come from; nobody knew why they were there. The mysterious objects, most of them spherical in shape, lay there on the beach, motionless, immovable despite the tide’s best efforts to eradicate them from the shoreline. Then, a crack began to appear on the surface…

Activity 1 – Please complete the following questions based on the picture and story starter.

Where might these objects have come from?

Why is the surface of the nearest object cracking?

What is inside the objects? Are all of the objects the same?

What will happen next?

If you came across one of these, how would you react?

Do these objects remind you of anything?

Why have these objects landed on the beach? Is it by chance or is it deliberate?

Activity 2

Sentence challenge!

Verbs are action/doing words.

Look at my writing below. Can you locate the verbs and replace them with more exciting vocabulary? Can you add some adverbs to the sentences too?

Out of nowhere, oddly shaped objects came down from the sky. They went into the sand with a loud thump. A group of people walking along the beach saw the objects, and walked towards them. A crack went on the surface, and the gathering crowd made a noise.

    My first answers are fictional alien based inference ones, yet my second answers are plausible scientific facts.

    Where might these objects have come from?
    These peculiar ball might have fallen from space; ready to take on the human race…

    Well in truth these balls have emerged out of the sea; they were originally sea sediments. However, as the shoreline eroded they became visible. Similar sightings have been found in Australia where, large green balls began emerging out of the sea, scientists have identified them as rare algae congregations known as Marimo .

    Why is the surface of the nearest object cracking?
    This may be because, the beings inside of them were starting to emerge and this was the perfect time to put their diabolical plan into action.

    They are not cracking as I said before they are rocks, no rock is perfectly smooth and since they have been in the sea most of the time the wave and, storms have caused them to bump into other rocks and surfaces causing them to crack and chip.

    What is inside the objects?
    Sadistic beings from an alternate universe waiting to conquer yet another planet.

    Possibly a piece of ancient wood, bone, or a fossil.

    Yes and no, some of them are older than others and some have different sizes.

    Scientists will carry out some tests upon these rocks and make a major discovery about the past or what these rocks really are .

    Well part of me would be very paranoid, overwhelmed and scared however, most of me would be fascinated and keen to explore.

    Do these objects remind you of anything?
    Yes they remind me of coprolite [Fossilised dinosaur poo] and alien pods.

    Why have these objects landed on the beach? Is it by chance or is it deliberate
    Part of me who thinks that there is other life out their believes these could be aliens who have landed here and, are waiting for the right time to pounce or, scientifically these rocks have landed their by coincidence .

    Activity 2.

    One by one the cryptic, perplexing balls emerged out of the sky. Driving everyone below into a rising panic; despite this crowds of fearless people began to surround the sphere when suddenly cracks began to plaster the boulders people shouted fearfully what had fate had in store for them?

  8. Activity 1: (Questions)

    These objects might have come from outer space.

    The surface is cracking because maybe there is an animal or creature inside it.

    All of the objects are cracking but they all differ in size so each object could have something different inside.

    The objects could hatch or break open next exposing what is inside of them.

    If I came across one of these, I would react by shacking the object or trying to break it open safely.

    These objects remind me of meteors or asteroids but small ones because an asteroid that fell from outer space that landed in earth would ave caused a big crater

    I think that these objects landed on the beach by chance because if it was deliberate, someone would have to aim or target it and if that was soeone in outer space it would be extraterrestrial life and i do not believe in extraterrestrial life.

  9. Activity 1.

    1) These objects might have arrived from space.

    4)I think that the objects will open up
    5) I would be confused
    6) No
