To start our second day of MPU classes, we did a group work assignment on “New Planet”.
It goes like this:
Due to the pollution in the air, the Earth’s ozone layer is way too thin. Days are getting hotter and hotter. In a couple of days, the Earth is going to be too hot for humans to survive. NASA has a rocket that will send people to a new planet so that they can repopulate and the human species will not become extinct… the only problem is the rocket can only take 10 people!!!
We were asked to seperate into groups of 3 and procced with discussions. My teammates and I has chosen the following 10 people to go to the new planet.
1. 12 year old male, straight A student, wants to be a police officer.
2. 59 year old male, computer technician.
3. 24 year old female, pregnant and expecting twins, teacher.
4. 50 year old female, doctor, cannot have children.
5. 22 year old female, college student, studying the environment.
6. 29 year old female, botanist (studies plants/ trees).
7. 30 year old female, cook, owns her own restaurant.
8. 10 year old male, farmer.
9. 52 year old male, fisherman.
10. 49 year old female, aircraft repairwoman.
There are certain reasons on why we choose these people:
We would wanna send a botanist and also a college student who studies the environment is because they can study and investigate the environment of the new planet before they start a new living style. We send farmer and fisherman as well because they are those who can provide the source of food like rice, vegetables and fishes. When there is food, the 30 year old female cook can like open a restaurant and maybe start business! 😤
On the other hand, we are sending the 12 year old straight A student along with the 24 year old pregnant teacher. This student might be developing in a good environment where there is a teacher who can increase his intelligence and might as well achieve his dreams. And when this student successfully became a police officer, he can maintain the environment’s safety. Furthermore, the teacher is pregnant and might be having a twins. Not only can she contribute in education, she can also contribute in repopulation in the new environment. In addition, after 20 years, the teacher’s children might get together with the student and it might increase the population in the new environment. Moreover, when there’s pregnant woman, there is a need that we need to send a doctor there as well. Althought this 50 year old female doctor cannot give birth to babies, but she certainly can help out pregnant womans.
Next, we will be sending the 59 year old computer technician and also the 49 year old aircraft repairwoman. We might need some technologies and also someone who knows how to repair aircrafts so that there’s some teachnologies and it is easier for them to repair the aircrafts.
My teammates and I might have chosen what others didn’t, cause everyone has their own perspective and will choose different people to be sent to the new planet. Some of the classmates did presetations on the stage which is kinda funny HAHAHAHAHA! I wonder what will we have for MPU classes tmrw hehe 😂🙆
