This week's blog question came from me watching this 60 Minutes episode on Alex Honnold. As I watched Alex climb, I couldn't figure out if he was crazy, brave or a little bit of both. The one conclusion I did come to is that there is NO WAY I wouldn't even think about attempting it. If you are interested in viewing the 60 minutes interview, it is found below.
The above video led to the next video on three extreme sports. Watch the video and then answer at least one of the following questions:
1. These athletes participate in some unique and extreme sports. If you could undertake any sporting adventure, what would it be and why? Remember, you can go anywhere and do anything!
2. These extreme athletes explore nature, including mountains, rivers, and waterfalls, through their hobbies. Imagine that you could explore anywhere in the world. What kind of lands would you like to explore? How would you like to explore them (e.g. on foot, by bike, via helicopter, etc)? Don't forget to explain why you chose that kind of terrain and transportation.
Here is this week's video:
Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least two other students. Compliment strong points, make connections, ask questions and build on ideas shared!
As always, I look forward to reading your responses!
