Girls are much more mature than boys

Girls are much more mature than boys in some cases as they are more organized than boys. But some times boys are more mature than girls as boys know how to act in different situations.

Boys only need to know about their bodies and girls only need to know about girls bodies

I agree with this as girls don’t need to know what is not going to happen to boys and boys don’t need to know what is going to happen to girls.

Families are not important who needs them

Families are important because they provide you with what you need and they give you everything you want. Families are also important so people can reproduce and so the humans don’t die out.

On Wednesday you will be asked to post your 2 best number/letter/colour patterns on the blog as a comment for this posting.

It would be great if you could use some imagination in putting your pattern together.

Let’s see if we can get some good conversations going about the different patterns our class members make by adding comments about the patterns they record.

Girls are more mature than boys…..

I agree with this statement and at the same time I don’t because in the world there are some boys that are mature and the are some girls that are not as mature as boys. It depends on how the person is to decide whether this person is mature or not.

Boys should know about boys bodies and girls should know about girls…..

I think both of the genders should know about each others bodies because once we learn about the bodies, it might help us in the future such as if you want to be a doctor, it is important to know about the bodies of a male’s and a female’s so you know what to do.

Families are not that important, who needs them…..?

I disagree with this because everyone needs to have a family because we learn from our families and when we make mistakes, our family is there to help us and tell us what is wrong and what is right.


Answers to our provocations

May 17, 2010

Girls are more mature then boys…..

I agree and disagree. In some parts of the world girls are mature the boys and in some parts of theworld girls are not mature then boys. Not every girl in this world is mature then boys. Every one has a different personality in the world, not every one can be same.

Boys only need to know about boy’s bodies and girls’ only need to know about girl’s bodies…..

I disagree because if your children comes and askes, ” Mommy what is this?” and you dont know it. So Girls and Boys should learn the girls bodies and the boys bodies too. So when some one askes you a question which is realted to human body, you can answer it. This statement might affect if you want to be a doctor. Becoming into a Doctor should know the girls body and the boys body. So if the girl/boy as a problem in their body. The doctor can understand what is it and can fix their problem.

Families are not important, who needs them……

I Strongly Disagree in this statement. Without a Family, how will you spend time with? Who will you eat with? How will help you when you need help? Who encourages you to go higher or in sports? Who puts a smile in your face and is there for you? The answer is a Family. Family is one of the best things to have in your life. Look at other kids who dont have a great family like you! Look at them cry. You really lucky to get a family. Everyone needs a family. But that impossible because, everyone is different. Not everyone will get a family. So be happy you got a family.

Girls are more mature than boys…..

When it comes to girls, are more mature than boys it depends because of their working ability and working responsibility. Boys and girls are different. Some girls are very hard working and some are very lazy. Most boys are very intelligent and some boys leave all their work till the last date. I think it all depends on our interests.

 Boys should know about boys bodies and girls should know about girls…..

I think it is also important for girls to know about boy’s bodies and boys to know about girl’s bodies. The information that we collect now will give us more knowledge for our future jobs for e.g. Doctors and nurses. This information will be useful in case of emergency.

 Families are not important, who needs them?……

I think everyone needs a family because they stand by our sides during difiicult times.They also lead us through the right path of life.

1. I half agree and half disagree. Agree: Some girls can be more mature than some boys that make rong choices. Disagree: Girls can also make rong choices so you shouldn’t think girls will always  make the right choices because they might not.

2. sometimes boys don’t always need to know what just happens to boys bodys. What happens if they have a little daughter and something happens to the mum the little girl needs to know what will happen to their body when they grow up. At the same time it is not right for boys to know what happens to a girls body.

3. family is important because they are there to explain things to you and pass on news and ect. Also your family is important because if you are not in a good state than they are there to help you. Your family can also look after things for you. Also your family are the people I hope you can trust.

1.Girls are much more mature than boys….

I disagree with this provocation because i know more mature boy than girls. But i have to agree sometimes girls are more mature than boys but most of the time boys are more mature.

2. Boys only need to know about boys bodies and girls only need to know about girl’s bodies….

I partly disagree with this provocation because when you grow older your children might ask you about these things and you need to know how to answer. But it is more important to know about your on body rather then others

3. Families are not that important, who needs them…..?

I totally disagree with this provocation because we need our parents to guide us through out our lives. I think whoever thinks we don’t need parents is crazy
