O que é preciso saber no quadro “LOOK!” com a medida gallon?

Essa medida é a padrão para líquidos nos Estados Unidos, origem dos dados do gráfico. Ela também é usada no Reino Unido, porém há diferença entre a medida americana e a britânica, sendo esta denominada imperial gallon. Essa medida ainda é muito usada no Reino Unido e em outros países da Comunidade Britânica (Commonwealth), mas é considerada extraoficial atualmente. Já a medida padrão para líquidos no Brasil é diferente (Litro) daqueles países.

Nota: utilizamos apenas duas casas decimais no Caderno. As medidas exatas são:

• 3.785411 liters per gallon (US)

• 4.54609 liters per gallon (UK)

De Para Fórmula
Celsius Fahrenheit °F = (°C × 1,8) + 32
Fahrenheit Celsius °C = (°F − 32) : 1,8
Temperature scales are defined by assigning
values to temperatures that are easy to reproduce.
Celsius and Fahrenheit scales both use the
freezing point and boiling point of water at
normal atmospheric pressure. On a Celsius scale,
the distance between the freezing point and the
boiling point is divided into 100 equally-spaced
divisions. On a Fahrenheit scale, the distance
between the freezing point and the boiling point
is divided into 180 equal divisions.

correção, as orientações devem ser relembradas e
os alunos conduzidos à reflexão de como devem
transpor o sentido de can para o português, neste
caso (can = saber, quando indicando habilidades).
Exemplos de respostas:
I can speak two f • oreign languages: Spanish and
Eu sei falar duas línguas estrangeiras: espanhol
e inglês.
• Can he ride a horse?
Ele sabe andar a cavalo?
• She can’t swim, but she can dance.
Ela não sabe nadar, mas sabe dançar.
Sobre a pergunta se o verbo can é usado com o
mesmo sentido em inglês e português, espera-se
que os alunos respondam que não. Como dito nas
orientações acima, o verbo can, indicando habilidade
em inglês, tem o sentido de saber em português.
3. Esta tarefa deve ser bem explicada, pois é a primeira
vez que os alunos farão audição e leitura de
texto usando o CD em casa, sozinhos. Ao explicála,
enfatize os procedimentos de leitura/audição,
indicando a necessidade de leitura prévia do que
é pedido que se faça na atividade (isto prepara os
alunos para uma leitura direcionada, buscando
informações que atendam ao que foi pedido). Em
seguida, eles ouvem/leem o texto uma ou duas
vezes e respondem.
A correção deve ser feita retomando-se, inicialmente,
as orientações de como proceder em atividades
deste tipo (para reforçar os procedimentos
de leitura). Em seguida, o professor toca o CD e
pode ir parando em alguns pontos e fazendo a
correção por meio de perguntas (Are the Toronto
Blue Jays a professional basketball team? How do you
correct the information in the sentence?, etc.).
a) ( 􀀹 ) The Toronto Blue Jays are a professional
basketball team.
The Toronto Blue Jays are a professional
baseball team.
b) ( 􀀹 ) The Blue Jays are a member of a junior
Canadian league.
The Blue Jays are a member of a major
American league.
c) ( ) There is a picture of the blue jay on the

d) ( ) The Toronto Blue Jays is the first team to
win a World Series in Canada.

Algumas informações sobre o baseball
O beisebol é jogado entre dois times com nove atletas cada um, em um campo com formato de diamante.
Há um revezamento entre os jogadores dos dois times: enquanto uma equipe ataca, a outra defende.
Cada jogador ocupa posições predeterminadas em campo, e o jogo tem nove innings, ou entradas. Cada inning
é composto de duas partes. Na primeira, um time ataca com seus rebatedores até que três deles sejam eliminados
(out). Começa então a segunda parte do inning: o time que estava atacando vai para a defesa, e a equipe que
conseguiu eliminar três rebatedores parte para o ataque. Quando esse último time tem três rebatedores eliminados
também, acaba o inning.
O objetivo do jogo é bastante simples: marcar pontos, ou corridas. O time que está atacando faz um ponto
quando um jogador consegue completar uma volta em sentido anti-horário passando pelas quatro bases (que formam
um quadrado perfeito e ficam a 27,3 m de distância uma da outra). O time com mais pontos é declarado vencedor.
• A bola é feita de borracha ou cortiça, enrolada em um fio, forrada com duas tiras de couro branco. Ela pesa entre
156 e 163 gramas, e dura, nos jogos profissionais, em média apenas sete arremessos. Já o bastão, em formato
cilíndrico, é fabricado em madeira ou alumínio e pesa entre 850 gramas e 1 quilo. O tamanho também é variável,
podendo chegar até a 1 metro. O material básico dos atletas também contém um capacete e luvas de couro (o
jogador da primeira base e o catcher tem luvas com tamanhos e formatos diferentes).
• Ataque: apenas um rebatedor de cada vez ataca por seu time. O técnico é quem define a ordem dos rebatedores,
que vai do primeiro ao nono, sucessivamente na mesma ordem. Ou seja, depois do nono rebatedor, quem se
posiciona para atacar é o primeiro rebatedor, reiniciando a lista. Caso um jogador reserva seja colocado para
rebater no lugar de outro atleta, ele é chamado pinch hitter.
• O rebatedor se posiciona próximo à base principal (home plate) para tentar acertar a bola do arremessador. Atrás
do rebatedor, ficam o receptor (catcher) e o juiz principal, que define se as bolas do arremessador foram “boas”
para rebatida (strike) ou “ruins” (ball). Três strikes eliminam o rebatedor e quatro balls levam o mesmo à conquista
da primeira base. No momento em que acerta a bola na área de jogo do campo e consegue, correndo, alcançar
a primeira base, o jogador de ataque passa a ser um corredor (runner). Se a rebatida for forte, ele pode continuar
correndo, sempre em sentido anti-horário, e conquistar quantas bases ele conseguir.
• Se a rebatida, sem pingar, sair da área de jogo, o rebatedor consegue um home run, que consiste em dar uma
volta inteira pelas bases e anotar um ponto. Em caso de home run, os outros corredores também são impulsionados
automaticamente para a última base, marcando corridas. A outra forma de o rebatedor conquistar a
primeira base é rebater na direção de algum jogador de defesa e este, por sua vez, cometer um erro e não conseguir
jogar a bola para a primeira base para eliminar o jogador de ataque. Caso o rebatedor seja acertado pelo
arremesso do pitcher (hit by pitch), ele também conquista a primeira base.
• Na defesa, além dos três strikes do arremessador, o time de defesa pode eliminar um rebatedor de outras formas:
um defensor captura a bola sem a mesma ter tocado o chão, ou a defesa intercepta a rebatida e consegue que
a bola chegue ao jogador da primeira base (que fica com os pés fixos na mesma) antes que o corredor pise nela,
ou quando algum jogador de defesa tocar a luva com a bola num jogador de ataque antes que o mesmo alcance
uma base. É possível eliminar dois (double play) ou até mesmo três (triple play) corredores na mesma jogada.
• Não há limite para substituições de jogadores, mas um jogador que saiu de uma partida de beisebol não pode
voltar a atuar no mesmo jogo.

O campo
O campo de beisebol é composto de uma área principal com a forma aproximada de um quarto de círculo
(fair zone) e uma secundária, chamada de zona morta (foul zone). A área principal, por sua vez, é dividida em duas
partes, que são o diamante (diamond ou infield) e a jardineira (outfield).
O diamante é um quadrado de 27,4 m
de lado, cujos vértices se encontram em
uma base. O vértice mais importante e que
está localizado no que seria o centro do
círculo, recebe o nome de prato da casa,
ou base da casa (home plate ou home
base). É neste vértice que a jogada se inicia
e onde são conquistados os pontos quando
o jogador de ataque, depois de sair deste
ponto e passar pelos outros três vértices,
consegue retornar. Estes outros vértices são
batizados (no sentido anti-horário) como
primeira, segunda e terceira bases ( first,
second e third base) e são os locais onde
ocorrem as jogadas mais emocionantes.
Quase no centro geométrico do diamante
(a 18,4 m da base da casa), existe uma
pequena elevação de onde o arremessador
faz os seus lançamentos.
A jardineira é obtida pelo pro longamento
de dois lados do quadrado, a
partir do prato da casa, por pelo menos 50 m além das primeira e terceira bases, formando assim o resto do quarto
de círculo citado anteriormente. É importante observar que a limitação da jardineira se refere apenas à atuação
dos jogadores, pois a bola rebatida para além deste limite (internamente aos prolongamentos do quadrado) é uma
das jogadas mais esperadas por todos conforme descrito adiante.
A zona morta é a área do campo atrás da base da casa e entre as laterais e a arquibancada.
A partida
A partida de beisebol é dividida em nove tempos chamados de entradas (innings), em que cada entrada tem
duas partes. Na primeira parte, o time da casa joga na defesa, e o time visitante joga no ataque; na segunda parte,
os papéis se invertem. Não existe empate em um jogo de beisebol. No caso de a partida estar empatada no final
da nona entrada, são disputadas novas entradas até que, no final de uma delas, o jogo esteja desempatado.
Os jogadores
Cada time de beisebol é formado por nove jogadores, sendo que, durante a defesa, eles estão distribuídos da
seguinte forma: um arremessador (pitcher – P) no centro do diamante fazendo os lançamentos, um pegador
(catcher – C) agachado atrás do prato da casa para receber estes lançamentos, um jogador “guardando” cada base
( first, second e third baseman – 1B, 2B e 3B), um jogador que auxilia os guarda-bases chamado de entre-bases
(shortstop – SS) e três jogadores chamados de jardineiros (right, center e left fielder – RF, CF e LF) na parte mais
externa do campo. Inicialmente, quando o time está no ataque, ele só tem um jogador em campo que é o rebatedor
(batter). Durante o desenrolar da partida, se este time estiver jogando bem, pode ter até quatro jogadores em
campo simultaneamente, ou seja, o rebatedor e mais um corredor (runner) em cada uma das outras três bases.

Strategies and guidelines
Getting started
Um bom aquecimento para a primeira aula deste
Módulo é estabelecer uma breve conversa, em inglês,
sobre os grupos musicais e cantores preferidos dos alunos.
Apresentar uma música e perguntar a opinião
deles sobre ela também é uma boa opção. Nesse caso,
pode-se escolher uma música (ou cantor) para provocar
polêmica, obtendo diferentes opiniões na classe.
Sugestão de outra dinâmica de aula
Para ganhar tempo, o conteúdo da aula 31
pode ser trabalhado mostrando-se aos alunos imagens
de pessoas famosas (recorte de revistas ou
imprima da internet). Faça perguntas sobre estas
personalidades (Who is he / she? What does he / she
do?) e sobre a opinião dos alunos sobre elas, pessoal
e profissionalmente (What’s your opinion about him/
her? ). Escreva na lousa a frase: I think he/she is

Professor: nos itens b e d, aparece o verbo
to be concordando com Jonas Brothers no singular
e no plural, respectivamente. Lembramos
que, quando nos referimos à banda como grupo,
usamos o singular e, quando nos referimos
aos membros que a compõem, usamos o plural,
sendo as duas formas corretas.
Group work (page 115)
Organize os alunos em grupos de três para fazer
a leitura do diálogo.
Useful language (page 115)
1. a) Tough = Difícil, duro
b) Won = Venceu
c) I hope so. = Espero que sim.
d) Gee, man! = Que legal, cara! (Gee: interjection
to show that you are surprised or annoyed –
especially American English.)
e) I can’t believe it! = Não acredito!
f) Awful = Horrível
2. Leia o enunciado com os alunos e os leve a perceber
os diferentes tipos de opiniões expressos (use
gestos, expressões faciais, sinais, entoação). Mencione
algumas pessoas/grupos famosos e pergunte
a opinião dos alunos sobre eles. (What’s your
opinion about …?; What do you think about …?)
Peça então a eles que leiam as palavras/expressões
listadas no quadro e solucione dúvidas de voca bulário.
Finalmente, eles organizam os termos nas
colunas. Isso pode ser feito coletivamente.

And I never thought

I’m paranoid
Stuck in a room
Of staring faces
Caught in a nightmare
Can’t wake up
If you hear my cry
Running through her street
I’m about to freak
Come and rescue me
Just might be paranoid
I’m avoiding the lines
Cause they just might spread
Can someone stop the noise?
I don’t know what it is

Consider me destroyed
I don’t know how to act
Cause I lost my head
I must be paranoid
I never thought it would come to this

If time were still
The sun would never never find us
We could light up
The sky tonight
If I could see the world through your eyes
Leave it all behind
If it’s you and me forever
If it’s you and me right now
That’d be alright
Be alright
If we chase stars to loose our shadow
Peter Pan and Wendy turned out fine
So won’t you fly with me
Oh yeah
Gonna fly with me now
Now the past
Is coming alive
And give it meaning
And a reason
To give all I can
To believe once again
If it’s you and me forever
If it’s you and me right now
That’d be alright
Be alright
If we chase stars to loose our shadow
Peter, Fairy and Wendy turned out fine
So won’t you fly with me
Maybe you were just afraid
Knowing you were miles away
From the place where you needed to be
And that’s right here with me
It’s you and me forever
You and me right now
That’d be alright
If we chase stars to lose our shadow
Peter, Fairy and Wendy turned out fine
So won’t you fly with me
If it’s you and me forever
If it’s you and me right now
I’d be alright
Be alright
If we chase stars to loose our shadow

Jonas Brothers’ biography
One of the most popular teen-affiliated groups
of the 2000s, the Jonas Brothers craft hook-filled
power pop anthems in the vein of McFly, Hanson, and
the Modern Lovers. The young New Jersey natives
(while readying their 2006 debut, brothers Joseph,
Kevin, and Nicholas Jonas topped out at 16, 17, and
13, respectively) were reared in the city of Wyckoff
under the tutelage of musical parents. Nicholas
showed a particular flair for singing; by the age of
seven, he’d already begun a modest career as a
Broadway performer. The young vocalist also took an
interest in songwriting, even co-writing a Christmas
tune in 2002 alongside his father. Several years later,
his soulful voice had wowed enough executives at
Daylight/Columbia Records to warrant a solo album,
and Nicholas began writing original material with help
from his two brothers. The siblings’ songs impressed
the president of Columbia, who ultimately signed the
trio in 2005. The Jonas Brothers’ full-length debut, It’s
About Time, was released in August 2006. Featuring
the songwriting talents of Desmond Child and
Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger, the album
peaked at number 91 on the Billboard charts and
earned the siblings a modest audience, particularly
among fans of Radio Disney. Nevertheless, the Jonas
Brothers were dropped from Columbia’s roster in early
2007. They bounced back by signing with Hollywood
Records, a Disney-owned label that helped the group
exponentially expand its fan base. An eponymous
sophomore album, Jonas Brothers, arrived in August
2007, supported by a number of Jonas Brothers
appearances on the Disney Channel’s various
programs. The band also toured in support of the
record, selling out shows coast to coast — including a
stop at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles,
which was the fastest sold-out show in the venue’s
history. The reality television show Jonas Brothers:
Living the Dream documented the band’s life on the
road, and the band’s TV presence was furthered along
by Camp Rock, a 2008 Disney Channel television
movie that featured the brothers and up-and-coming
star Demi Lovato. The movie was watched by nearly
nine million viewers and launched the Jonas Brothers’
next single, “Burnin’ up,” which helped whet demand
for the release of A Little Bit Longer later that year. In
2009, the trio released Music from the 3D Concert
Experience, along with a live concert film of the same
name. Later that year, they released their fourth studio
album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times.

Who is it?
É uma forma lúdica de levar os alunos a
usarem as estruturas de perguntas e respostas
com o present simple do verbo have, bem como
o vocabulário usado para descrições físicas.
Escreva o nome do jogo na lousa e explique
suas regras/procedimentos. Exemplifique escolhendo
um aluno (sem comunicar à classe)
e escrevendo seu nome em um pedaço de papel
para confirmação de sua escolha após os
alunos descobrirem quem ele é. Incentive a
classe a fazer perguntas até descobrir qual aluno
havia sido escolhido.
Em seguida peça um voluntário para vir à
frente da classe. Ele deve pensar em um colega,
sem olhar diretamente para ele, e dizer o seu
nome apenas para o professor, em voz baixa,
para que este confira as respostas durante o jogo.
Explique aos outros alunos que eles devem
fazer perguntas cujas respostas possam ser apenas
Yes. ou No. até descobrirem de quem se
trata. Exemplo: Is it a boy? Is she / he tall / short
/ thin? Does she / he have long / short hair?
Quem acertar, vem à frente da classe e

Here is Beto talking about his daily activities
I start my day very early in the morning. I get up at a quarter to six. I have a very light breakfast: a
glass of chocolate milk and a toast. I take the school bus in front of my house at a quarter past six. I start
school at twenty past seven. We have five classes a day. Our break is from ten o’clock to twenty-five past
ten. I like Mondays because I have P.E. in the afternoon. I usually come back home at one o’clock. I
have lunch and then I rest for a while. Sometimes my afternoons are not very exciting because I have to
study and do a lot of homework.
In my free time, I listen to my favorite CDs, I play soccer and I ride my bike with my friends in the
neighborhood. I also chat with my key pals. We usually have dinner at half past seven. When I’m not
very tired, I watch TV from half past eight to half past ten. I don’t go to bed very late on weekdays.
Os alunos assinalam as figuras relacionadas à rotina de Beto. Toque o CD novamente para eles verificarem
as respostas. Figuras a serem assinaladas:

After the tours on the island, Beto and his family
go back to the hotel and rest for some time. There
isn’t much to do on the island at night, so after
dinner, Beto goes to the Projeto Tamar Base where
he learns more about marine life. He watches films
and listens to environmental lectures.
From January to July, visitors can see turtles lay
eggs at night or little baby turtles run to the water
for the first time. It’s a pity Beto can’t see this
wonderful show of nature this time.

O tema trabalhado até a aula 47 é o projeto transdisciplinar desenvolvido pelo grupo do Paul para ser apresentado
à classe focalizando o continente africano. No texto deste Módulo, abordamos características gerais do
continente e um pouco da diversidade de sua fauna.
Ao final destas aulas, espera-se que os alunos tenham ampliado o vocabulário sobre a caracterização do
continente africano e o conhecimento sobre o assunto. Embora não sejam apresentados exercícios específicos de
gramática, também se espera que os alunos aprofundem seu conhecimento do Presente Simples por meio das
atividades propostas.
• Ler e produzir texto sobre o continente africano.
• Conscientizar-se da diversidade sociocultural no mundo.
• Interagir em situações nas quais o Presente Simples é usado em inglês.
• Ampliar vocabulário sobre caracterização de continente.
Cross-cultural / cross-curricular studies: Geografia – África (divisão política, alguns aspectos físicos e
geográficos, diversidade da fauna).

Explore o mapa do continente africano (ou traga
um mapa político da África). Pergunte aos alunos se
eles se lembram de mais algumas informações ao olhar
para o mapa. Por exemplo: There are many countries.
Egypt is in Africa. (Eles estudaram Egito Antigo em
História no Caderno 3 – 3o bimestre.) There are lions
and elephants there, etc.
Diga aos alunos que eles farão um quiz para testar
seu conhecimento sobre a África e que talvez se lembrem
de outras informações ao lerem as perguntas.
Caso não saibam algumas respostas, peça-lhes que
tentem lembrar de informações e documentários a que
assistiram, que olhem o mapa e que tentem responder
mesmo assim.

necessário, uma terceira vez para correção da atividade.
O texto que eles ouvirão é este:
The Nile River
The Nile River is about 6,694 km long. It is the longest river in Africa and in the world. It runs through eight
different African countries: Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Zaire, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt. Around
105 million people live along the Nile today, most of these in Egypt.
Its water is precious to Egyptians, because 95% of the country is desert. The Nile River runs through Egypt,
creating a fertile green valley across the desert.
Some of the country’s ancient cultural and historic places are along the banks of the river, like the Great Pyramids,
The Great Sphinx and Egypt’s capital, Cairo. The Nile ends in a large delta that flows into the Mediterranean Sea.

Nesta atividade, retome a questão da grande diversidade natural do continente africano, mencionada no
texto-base. Faça perguntas:
• Are there rainforests in Africa? (Yes, there are.)
• What other kinds of habitats are there? (Grasslands / savannas, deserts, mountains.)
• Are there national parks in Africa? (Yes, there are. – Isto é mencionado no texto, e os alunos que usaram o
material de Inglês do Sistema Anglo de Ensino no 5o ano leram sobre Kruger Park.)
• Why are there national parks there? (To protect animals and plants.)
• Which animals can we find in Africa? (Gorillas, elephants, lions, etc.)
1. Os alunos deverão ler rapidamente os quadros com informações sobre diversos animais e correlacioná-los
às imagens dos animais, copiando o nome de cada animal no quadro correspondente (esta técnica de leitura
é chamada skimming – o aluno procura apenas alguma dica/informação que possibilite a identificação do
animal). Não resolva as dúvidas de vocabulário neste momento para que os alunos percebam que é possível
fazer a atividade sem uma leitura detalhada dos textos.
This animal is a member of the ape family. It lives
in groups in African rainforests. It is very intelligent.
Its face has a lot of expressions, just like a
human face. It is 0.66 (females) to 1.2 (males)
meters tall and has black fur. It sleeps in the trees.
It eats fruit, plants, insects, eggs and meat. It lives
about 45 years.
This animal is a big mammal. It lives on savannas,
in dense forests and in river valleys south of the
Sahara Desert. It can be up to four meters tall. It
has very big ears. It has gray-brown skin, a very
short tail and a long, strong trunk. It has two
tusks. It eats fruit, roots, grasses and berries, and
it drinks about 50 gallons of water a day. It doesn’t
sleep very much. It lives 55 to 60 years.

25 years.
This animal is the biggest reptile of Africa. It lives
in marshes, swamps and the rivers of Africa. It

2. Esta é a primeira vez que sugerimos que os alunos pesquisem na internet para a realização de uma tarefa. É
importante que o professor oriente-os sobre como buscar informações e sobre como verificar a confiabilidade
dos sites. Seguem algumas dicas para o professor.
Sites de busca confiáveis: Google (<;) e AltaVista (<;).
Dicas de como verificar a credibilidade de um site
• Identificação / domínio – O endereço de domínio identifica claramente a origem do site? Dê preferência
àqueles com domínio edu, gov, org, ou sites oficiais de países, estados e cidades.
• Nome e endereço de contato – há algum endereço para contato que não seja virtual? Existem outras
maneiras de fazer contato além do site ou de um único e-mail?
• Atualização de informações – Há evidência de atualização recente de conteúdos? O conteúdo é atual e
cobre acontecimentos e/ou questões atuais?
• Arquivo – Há como acessar conteúdos anteriores? Existe uma ferramenta de busca do próprio site?
• Conteúdo – O site apresenta um ponto de vista equilibrado, ou seja, o conteúdo é abrangente, focado e
não emotivamente apresentado?
• Confiabilidade – O site parece ser estável ou permanente ou de uma organização permanente? A “aparência”
do site deve sugerir profissionalismo: deve carregar rapidamente, ser aceito em uma variedade de navegadores
(por exemplo: IE, Netscape, etc.)
• Confirmação de informações off-line – Os patrocinadores locais, argumentos e ideias veiculadas podem
ser verificados por meio de outras fontes de informação, por exemplo, listas telefônicas, diretórios de rua,
enciclopédias, pesquisas publicadas?
• Privacidade – Sites que pedem o cadastro dos usuários devem apresentar uma declaração de privacidade
e sigilo sobre as informações dos usuários.

[her hers his his my mine our ours their theirs]


Some years ago Carlos and I went camping in Lake District, a beautiful place in the northeast of England. There we met our friends Avis and John Keen. We were extremely happy because we had not seen them for a long time. They decided to put up their tent near ours so we could talk our heads off.

There was a restaurant in the campsite, so the four of us decided to have something to eat. When we had finished our dinner and were ready to ask for the bill, I noticed there was a brown wallet on the floor next to my feet. I picked it up and saw it was full of money. I asked whose it was. John said it wasn’t his. When I asked Avis if it was hers, she said, “no”. She had not brought her wallet along. I knew it wasn’t mine. Carlos said it wasn’t his either.

Finally, I took it to the restaurant owner and he said somebody had already looked for it. It was a girl who had dropped it from her purse and had not noticed it. I once lost my wallet in Brazil and I never got it back. It was very hard to get all my ID cards again. Carlos lost his once too, but someone found it and returned it to him. Avis and John had never lost theirs till that day. “Thank God for that”, they said.

Breathing life into a lake
The fish were dying in Silver Lake. A girl finds
out why.
By Ritu Upadhyay, 1999.
One morning in 1997, Aubrey Stahl woke up to a
terrible smell. There were 2,000 dead fish floating in
the lake behind her house in Loveland, Colorado.
For two years, Aubrey, now 10, wondered what
killed the fish in Silver Lake and what could be done
to keep more from dying. She decided to do some
research. Aubrey found out that the fish died because
there wasn’t enough oxygen in the lake for them to
breathe. Plants that live in water give off oxygen. The
problem in Silver Lake is that there are not enough
plants to produce the oxygen that fish need. Also,
some of the lake’s oxygen was being absorbed by
objects rotting in the water, such as leaves, grass
clippings and goose droppings.
Aubrey started a campaign to save the small lake,
which is less than a square mile in size. She distributed
brochures to people suggesting simple ways that can
help restore the oxygen level, like keeping grass
and other waste out of the lake. She also advises
residents not to fertilize lawns near the lake because
the chemicals harm water plants. She believes it’s
important to teach kids about the lake. Says Aubrey:
“Most people might not care what shape it’s in. But
kids care. We’d hate to see it go.”

A Monument to Brazil
Brasília, the capital of Brazil, is considered a
monument to what Brazilians can do and have done.
Visitors to Brasília are offered a view of the future
when they face the large, innovative buildings and the
futuristic qualities of the city’s architectural plan.
The idea of moving the capital inland was first
presented in 1823, by José Bonifácio de Andrada e
Silva, a counselor and minister of D. Pedro II. The name
“Brasília” was also suggested by him, then. When
Brazil became a republic and its first constitution was
written (in 1891), the document stated that an area
of 14,400 square kilometers would belong to the
government for the creation of a new capital. This area
was named the Federal District.
However, very few steps were taken towards
building the new capital for many years. A symbolic
cornerstone was placed in 1922, but nothing else was
done at that time.
When Juscelino Kubitschek was elected president,
he vowed to honor the constitution. With the slogan
“50 years in 5”, he obtained Congressional permission
and the construction began in 1956.
The contests between architects and urban
planners over who would plan Brasília were won
by Lúcio Costa with his Pilot Plan, whose layout
resembled a bird in flight, or an airplane. Costa’s
friend, Oscar Niemeyer, was the architect of many
public buildings in Brasília.
The city was inaugurated as the new capital of
Brazil on April 21, 1960, although the construction was
not yet complete. Originally the city was planned for
a maximum of 500,000 residents, but thousands of the
workers that went there to build it decided to stay.
Many “satellite” cities were built surrounding Brasília
in order to house the workers and many newcomers
who headed for the new capital city. And the city
continues growing amid the cerrado scenery!
