  10. 1)Michael wrote a personal version of the ship’s log what he didn’t have to do but he was encouraged to do it every few weeks but writing it was only natural to him and when he spoke the words that he wanted to write and then it traveled down his arm into his pen and then it went on his paper.

    2)Stella Artois was allowed to be idle because she had nothing to do because she had nothing to bark at and when the seas were rough and aggressive she stayed inside on Michaels bunk.

    3)I think Michaels favourite job on the ship was him taking his turn at the wheel on the ship when his mother(the skipper) allowed him to.I think his least favourite job on the ship was mopping up when he was not helping his dad or navigating the ship

    4)Michael can no longer argue with his mother because now she was the captain of the ship(the skipper) and he was just a crew member who has to wash up and dry the clothes on aggressive days.Unlike at home when he was able to argue with his mom when they got in a disagreement.

    5)I think the chapter is called Water Water everywhere because it was a while since they set sail from Southampton and all they are surrounded by most of the time was water or the ocean.

    6)I don’t think heaving is a good way to describe the ocean because that means extremely crowded and there are no other people sailing the world at that place or time and the ocean is water and can’t crowd you.

    7)The main difference of learning at sea and school is that at school you have teachers that have experience in teaching younger children and the schools have more resources and at sea you are quite crowded and can’t put as much learning resources inside of the boat and the oceans in you have technology outside that is not waterproof you will not be able to use it anymore.

  11. comprehension:

    1) What does Michael have to do for “English”?
    For English Michael had to do his own version of the ships log.

    2) Which part of the sailing do you think Michael most/least enjoyed?
    I think Michael enjoyed when his mother was teaching him navigation.
    I think the least thing Michael enjoyed was because there was nothing to argue.

    3) Why can Michael no longer argue with his mother?

    5) Is “heaving” a good word to describe the sea?
    It’s good to describe it because the sea is crowded.

    6) What are the main differences between learning at school and learning at sea?
