Modern Day Expedition

Imagine you were given the opportunity to join a modern day expedition that was setting out to explore an unknown territory.  This expedition would be supplied with the best technology possible. You are not sure what you will find because no man/woman has ever gone there.  There is a risk of danger and you do not know when you will be able to return home to your family and friends.

Would you accept the invitation? Why or why not?  List 5 reasons to support your answer.

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!

 Mr. Boettger :-)

    I would go on this expedition for new land because it could make me famous and possibly rich.I would also be able to use technology that I have never used before. I would also be one of the first people to see this new land and i would learn a lot. That is why I want to go to this new land.

    No i wouldn't take the opportunity because i wouldn't want to risk being away from my family. Also because there could be diseases that you could die from. If you had an injury you wouldn't be able to get healed because there is no doctor. I think that i would be lonely because you are all alone. Lastly because i think i would get board because i wouldn't know how long i would be walking or climbing or running and doing the same thing over and over every day for a long time would get boring. That is why i wouldn't go.

      I don't understand why you would get tired of doing the same thing every day that is like school we do math and language every day?

    I would go because it would be a cool experience, and I would be rich if I came back, I would go because I know that I would be okay because I have the best technology behind me, and because I always like a good adventure, and that I would extremely famous.

    If I could go on an expedition I would want to go and explore. Even if I am putting myself I risk, I have a life so why not make it a good one.

    No I wouldn't want to go if there is a way that we know I will come back. I also wouldn't want to go cause I don't like being alone and if I went then I would be alone for the whole trip. Another reason I wouldn't go is because I would miss my family and friends. I also wouldn't want to go because what if I got hurt I would die from an infection. I also wouldn't want to go because I don't know what's going to be there, there could be wild animals and dieses

    If I was invited to a expedition I would say yes because 1. I love adventure 2. I would be famous ( not in a bad way ) 3. I would make new friends to talk to later 4. well there is probably no danger at the new place so I would not want to miss out on a once and a life time opportunity to see this new place 5. it would be fun to explore new land and see new things and make new friends I think it would be a good time and experience for me and the other people going to the new land.

    If I was offered that opportunity I think it would really depend on how far away I had to go, if some other people were going with me, and how much food we were bringing with us. If the journey included these aspects then I would go. I want to make my mark in the world and I do like adventure.

    yes I would do this because it looks really cool and nobody has seen what you may get to see and that and it would be something really cool to see even no it is very danger of dyeing/never coming home to your family. also I would do it because if you do find something up there you could get popular that you found that and also you can have little jokes at a friend that dint want to do it.

    no I would not take the invention because there is no really strong chance of me coming back to my family and friends and it is really dangerous.

    I think that I would like to do this because I like doing dangerous things and going away to a place were nobody has every been and having the risk of not being able to come home and see your family is very dangerous.
    the first reason that I would like to do it is because I could discover I new thing and another place to rebuild and make more country's or city's.
    I would also like to do this because I think it would be fun and a good adventure.

    I think I would go because it would be cool expierence and I also I would like to be the first person to ever go to this place also I would go because I could know things that nobody knew before. another reason would be if I find something I could classify it with the technology we have

    No I would not go on an expedition because
    A) there is no technology that can defeat nature
    B) if no man or woman has ever gone there then how do we know that it really exists, or,that there isn't people already living there and we just don't know it?
    C) if there is not a 100% chance that i would be coming back then i wouldn't go because i would miss my family to much
    D) i would also not like to go because if there's some kind of mystical creature there then we don't know how to communicate with it or defeat it in case it tries to harm me
    E) And besides I'm probably to young to go anyways because I'm only 12

    yes I would go there because I know someday I will die, and if I do die exploring, I know that I would die a happy, meaningful adventurous life. if I make it back alive, I would go home and live a good live knowing I helped explore and figure out valuable information.
