General Discussion / Easter Island

If you're stuck for something to watch now The Bridge has finished, you might like to watch this fascinating programme...  http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03srmm6/Easter_Island_Mysteries_of_a_Lost_World/

How they erected and moved the moved the moai is very interesting, as is what happened to the people and the environment.

Not necessarily something you'd be showing to the students but I recommend it.

Yes - 2nd can better.  I could have thought of something more interesting to put in the path of flowing lava; today that would include my controlled assessments which need to be marked.

I showed it to my Yr12 and a couple of the girls turned green so I had to stop it.  They both professed to be animal lovers (they did both admit to eating meat too!).

I'm delighted about the prospect of not having to do controlled assessment anymore.  I have always found it an utter chore!
