WEDNESDAY 16TH  MORNING CHALLENGE

DAILY TIMETABLE – WEDNESDAY 16th MARCH 2022

ONGOING EXTRA CHALLENGE TODAY

On March 16, National Panda Day draws attention to one of the world’s unique bears. Pandas are also one of the world’s most endangered and adored animals. Conservationists and animal lovers alike spread the word about increasing efforts of the international community dedicated to protecting and restoring habitat.Native to China, giant pandas are members of the Bear family. Their rapidly shrinking habitat is a major cause for concern. As an endangered species, successful panda breeding programs are rare. In the wild, there are approximately only 1,864 and 100 living in zoos around the world. With their white face and black eyes and body, panda bears are easily identifiable. However, their black and white colouring was designed for their natural habitat. They disappear into the snowy mountains and temperate forests of southwest China. And despite their sweet disposition, they tend to isolate themselves in the wild. They eat mostly plants and do not hibernate in the winter like many other bears.

We missed it, yesterday was Pi Day!  

Pi is the mathematical constant that determines the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, and the area of a circle to its radius. It is represented by the greek letter p.

Pi’s value is usually taken to be 3.14, hence March 14th, March being the third month. So basically, it is a gag on the date.

The official website of Pi Day can be found at piday.org, where you can find out more about the day and even see Pi calculated to 1 million digits.

14TH MARCH MORNING CHALLENGE

DAILY TIMETABLE – MONDAY 14 MARCH 2022

HOMEWORK WEEK BEGINNING 14

On March 14th, National Learn About Butterflies Day encourages us to look for a blur of colour as butterflies begin migrating across the country. Each year the celebration brings with it an awareness of the varieties of butterflies and their importance to our survival. Spring and summer are just right around the corner, so it is an excellent time to take a few minutes and learn something new about butterflies and appreciate their beauty. Like bees, bats and other pollinators, butterflies make the difference between valuable fruits and vegetables on our tables. While we’re planting native flowers and trees, we’re also providing for our future. Pollinators such as the Monarch Butterfly and the honey bee have been in decline. All the reasons have not been identified, however, increasing the available habitat does help!

IT’S MEATBALL DAY!

Meatballs are probably a gift from the heavens—there are early recipes for meatballs are found in ancient Chinese, Arabic and Roman texts—and every culture seems to have their own version! Beef, pork, and veal are most popular, but they can be made with chicken, fish or even vegan. Let’s all rejoice on March 9 in honour of National Meatball Day.

Where did meatballs originate?  How do you make them?  Are they healthy for eating?  What other facts can you find out?

EXTRA CHALLENGE

Throughout history, women have fought courageously and tirelessly to assert themselves as individuals and experts in their field.  Groundbreaking designers, space explorers, pilots, political activists and feminists, artists, monarchs and leaders. There is something these inspirational women all share in common: they are all warriors and continue to inspire us in our own modern lives.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, ‘do one thing every day that scares you.’ Below are just a handful of headstrong women who echoed that call to arms and did just that:-

Cleopatra, Rosa Parks, Mary Wollstonecraft, Nora Ephron, Emmeline Pankhurst, Malala Yousafzai, Amelia Earhart, Valentina Tereshkova, Frida Kahlo, Florence Nightingale, Elizabeth Taylor, Coco Chanel, Marie Curie, Edith Cavell

Do some research to see what each woman is known for.

What does your name mean?  How old do you think your name is? What country or culture did your name come from? These are all questions you should be asking today – and of course, with a little research, you should be finding them out!
Different generations will often have different names, some more popular than the others, and many created according to trends of the time.  Perhaps you or members of your family were named after a famous film star or a character in a book which your parents were fond of.
And it’s not just your first name you could look into – family names have even more of a wealth of history behind them. For many people,  their last name originally came from the occupation of their ancestors.  You may find after looking into it carefully that your last name takes you back to your ancestors on the other side of the world. Maybe you have royalty in your bloodline, or perhaps even some key historical figures. Today is the day to find out!
