Read the article about young people and technology. Then answer the questions. 

Isra from Thailand

We use computers and other technology in almost every class. Everybody is given a mobile computer by the school, nobody buys textbooks. We also do ICT on Wednesday mornings after science. In the future, I don't think we'll have to go to school. We'll all do lessons online and we'll have more time to do sport with our friends. 

Gabriella from Brazil

We aren't taught ICT at our school. If we need to use the internet, we sometimes go to the computer room, but we mostly use books in class. Our history teacher is brilliant on the internet and she often downloads interesting videos for our lessons. I don't really like spending my time on computers or things like that. I prefer to finish my homework quickly and then play football with my friends. In the future, I know that I'll need to use new technology every day. 

Ida from Norway

We don't study ICT as a school subject because it's part of every class and we can go online in all the classrooms. Last Wednesday, we had to write a healthy lunch menu in science so we looked for information online. I often use the internet to do my homework. My mum says we never use our school books but this isn't true. I tell her that in the future there won't be any books.

A recent report showed which countries were the to live in. It included things like how long people live and what kind health problems they have. of the countries on the list were Australia, Italy and France, and Japan was at the top. In Japan, more people live to be over eighty than in any other country. Part of the reason is that people have a very healthy diet. They eat a lot of fish and vegetables. They don't eat red meat and cheese. We don't all to live in Japan to be more healthy, but we certainly all eat more fish and do more exercise too.

The Sun and the Moon

I will always remember what happened I was five years old. I was playing in the park one day when suddenly it got cold and very dark. My mother was near, but for a few moments, I couldn't see her. I was afraid. I looked up but I couldn't see sun. My mother told me not worry. She said it was a solar eclipse. The sun came back after a few minutes.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon goes in front the sun. It's dangerous to look the sun of course, if you don't have special equipment. There also something called a lunar eclipse when the same thing happens with the moon.
