Human Made Disaster In Brazil

As we learn about the tragedy in Paris there has been many of other tragedies happening around the world as well.

As we know Mrs Joyce travelled to Brazil only months ago and loved the country and the people. She has learnt about a terrible event that has happened only days ago.

There has been a terrible mudslide caused my human error. A dam full of toxic mud has exploded its banks and has wiped out a whole village. Many people have lost their lives.

Here is an article and a video to show the devastation.

    There’s lots of important things that are covered in mud.
    Everyone is trying to help.
    It looks like the country is meant to be made of mud.

    What questions would you like answered?
    How can a nine year old in Australia help you?
    How will you get rid of all that mud?
    How will you increase your population again?

    What inferences can you make about the Brazilian people and the tragedy as a whole?
    I think there will be another mud slide.
    I think it’s silly that they’re trying to look for people because the people that are looking will probably fall or sink into the mud.

    What do you observe about the tragedy in Brazil?
    I observe a rescuer helping a dog. I see mud everywhere. I see a car on a building. I see some broken trees. I see the a dump truck on the side of a mountain.

    What questions would you like answered?
    I would like to know what caused the mud slide. How does the stuff in the mud make it toxic. How many catastrophes like this occur yearly.

    What inferences can you make about the Brazilian people and the tragedy as a whole?
    I infer that the survivors would be terrified and spooked. I think the mud slide has affected the town very badly and will take a long time to recover. I think this event has been a catasrophe and will never be an event to forget
