What wonderfully presuasive arguments you have presented! Well done. I agree that we should leave the moon alone. Did you know that the moon controls the tides? So if they mined it, maybe the tides would be affected! What will they suggest next? Sonya
Hi Sonya,Thank you for coming on to our blog, we love to see parents commenting! - much appreciated.I also hope the moon doesn't get destroyed!-----Simon
Wonderfully, convincingly argued everyone. I like the references to history, in the landing on the moon, and to environmental concerns. Also it's good to remind us where else the money could be spent. I am sure there are people on Earth who could better do with that money. Interesting that all six of you were in agreement. Very pleased to see that the article attracted such interest from such an interesting group of students! Well done.
Hi Bridie Smith,I am on of the students who did a mini presentation on here. I'm glad that you enjoyed our persuasive text, which everyone's had different and powerful arguments. It's something that we all didn't want, so it is interesting that we all thought the same. Thanks for visiting our blog, we loved that you came!-----Simon

Hi Senior MY,These are some great examples of persuasive text related to mining the moon. Each of you were able to articulate your beliefs. Well done!Mrs David
Hi Mrs David,Thank you, we all tried our best and some were very persuasive - as everyone did a good job.We hope to see you again.-----Simon
HiI loved your speeches about us to mine on the moon but I think we should because what if we find something that can change the future maybe we can have flouting cars or stronger materials but it is sort of bad because what if we destroy it then we will have no moonFrom aziino
Hi Aziino,Thanks for the lovely comment, I see what you mean there. It can lead to a good future, but it may not. So will we take the risk? Thanks for visiting!-----Simon
Hi Senior MYI think that we should not mine the moon for all the things you said.Great work, Keep it upJames
Hi James,Yes, we all agree!Glad that you came.-----Simon
