The sub-zero heroes from the worldwide blockbusters Ice Age and Ice Age: The Meldown are back, on an incredible adventure... for the ages. Scrat is still trying to catch the nut (while, maybe finding true love); Manny and Ellie waits for the birth of their mini-mammoth, Sid the sloth gets into trouble when he creates his own family by hijacking some dinosaur eggs; and Diego the tiger wonders if he’s growing too “soft” hanging with his pals. On a mission to rescue the hapless Sid, the gang ventures into a mysterious underground world, where they have some close encounters with dinosaurs, battle flora and fauna run amuck – and meet a relentless, one – eyed, dino – hunting weasel named Buck.

Chico didn’t go to school and started working as a rubber tapper at the age of nine. In the 1970’s, Chico became a leader in creating the non- violent resistance movement to defend the forest and the homes of forest people from destruction. In 1975, he founded the Union Movement in Acre. He helped found the leftist Workers Party in 1979. In 1985, Chico founded the National Council of Rubber Tappers, a non-governmental group to defend the living and working conditions of communities that depend on the forest. At that time ha had already understood that sustainability was key to keep the forest alive. He also organized the first National Meeting of Rubber Tappers in Brasilia with the support of anthropologist Mary Helena Allegretti. Chico became internationally known as a rubber tapper, union leader and Brazilian grassroots activist. Chico received two international environmental awards. Unfortunately, Chico was assassinated outside his house on December 22, 1988 by Darcy Alves, son of cattle rancher Darly Alves.

• Act confident. Hold your head up, stand up straight, make eye contact, and walk confidently.
• Do not resort to violence or carry a gun or other weapon.
• Avoid situations where bullying can happen.
• Talk to your parents or an adult you can trust, such as a teacher, school counselor, or principal.
• If necessary, take steps to rebuild your self – confidence.
• Try to make friends with other students.
If You Are Being Bullied…
Many teens who are targets of bullies do not talk to adults because they feel embarrassed, ashamed, or fearful, and they believe they should be able to handle the problem on their own. Others believe that involving adults will only make the situation worse. While in some cases it is possible to end bullying without adult intervention, in other more extreme cases, it is necessary to involve school officials and even law enforcement. Talk to a trusted adult who can help you develop a plan to end the bullying and provide you with the support you need. If the first adult you approach is not receptive, find another adult who will support and help you.
A bully will be less likely to single you out if your project self – confidence.
A bully is more likely to leave you alone if you are with your friends. This is especially true if you and your friends stick up for each other.
If at all possible, avoid being alone with bullies. If bullying occurs on the way to or from school, you may want to take a different route, leave at a different time, or find others to walk to and from school with. If bullying occurs at school, avoid areas that are isolated or unsupervised by adults, and stick with friends as much as possible.
Bullying can affect your self – confidence and belief in yourself. Finding activities you enjoy and are good at can help to restore you self –esteem. Take time to explore new interests and develop new talents and skills. Bullying can also leave you feeling rejected, isolated and alone. It is important to try to make new friendships with people who share your interests. Consider participating in extra – curricular activities or joining a group outside of school, such as an after – school program, church youth group, or sports team.
Carrying a gun will not make you safer. Guns often escalate conflicts and increase the chances you will be seriously harmed. You also run the risk that the gun may be turned on you or an innocent person will be hurt. And you may do something in a moment of fear or anger you will regret for the rest of your life. Finally, it is illegal for a teen to carry a handgun; it can lead to criminal charges and arrest.

Renewable energy sources like the Sun, Wind, waves and the heat of the earth are also used to make electricity.
Renewable sources can be used again and should not run out.
Renewable sources are either carbon neutral or do not produce greenhouses gases so are much less harmful to the environment.
1 – Which energy sources are renewable or non- renewable?
A – Biomass uses the energy from plants and waste materials to make electricity. For example, wood or animal droppings can be burnt to make steam that turns turbines to make electricity.
B – Wind is made when the sun heats the Earth and the area above land gets hotter than the area above water. The hot air above land rises upwards leaving an area of low pressure. Cooler air moves into this area of low pressure making wind which we use to turn wind turbines and make electricity. Wind used to be turn windmills to grind wheat into flour.
2 – Write if the energy sources are renewable or non-renewable.
A - Renewable source of energy
B - Renewable source of energy
2 - Non- renewable: oil, natural gas, coal and nuclear.
Renewable: hydro-electric, solar, wind, biomass, wave, geothermal and tidal.
