    I know im not year 10, but i have one: Inner city! Like new york, london. Its an extreme man made enviroment. I could vary on meanings of “extreme” but its deffonatly more extreme than the common village, or ilkeston for that matter. The city is an enviroment where there are hundreds of risks all round you, muggers, violent gangs ect..

    Thanks guys, I forgot all about telling year ten to do this… Ofsted excitement. πŸ™‚

    Both got the same idea… I remember an interesting conversation about whether a human environment can be extreme at a meeting.

    G, removed the latin comment till you tell me what is it… I think it is , I love something..

    Lol, ok well heres a bit of basic that ive learnt:

    Frigus Lacus – Cold lake, or the lake is cold
    I dont actualy remember what i put on your site, but i think it was i love trees or something πŸ™‚ just making sentences from the few words and phrases that i do know πŸ™‚

    Im one of the students selected to meet the ofsted inspecters today, periud 2, im looking forward to it because it gets me out of lesson, and anthing that does that is amazing!

    Currently reading Twlight, didnt think it would be as much of a romance book as it is, but turns out romance is one of the main themes, the book has explicit scenes! lol, it also has vampires

    Antartica: there’s only one day a year where the sun shines (bit like England actually) The rest of the time it’s dark and humanly impossible to get there never mind stay there without the correct equiptment. Also it’s uninhabitable due to the fact it’s so unbearably cold, soon as you get frosbite there you would have to write your last will and testiment because of how far away it is from civilisation.

    Sahara Desert:if you get stuck in the middle of the sahara the longest you will last is a few days also you keep loosing water by sweat and even if you do make it eventually you will get heat stroke. Also the only way you will get out of there is to find some shade and just wait for someone to help you.

    Lets wait and see what the others come up with…

    USSR, do i need to explane πŸ™‚
    Califonian wilderness/mountain ranges, often you can go miles without meeting a ranger station and sometimes there hard to find There are often streams and rivers but also dangerus animals

    Ive been watching Homward Bound too much πŸ™‚

    G, the USSR wasn’t didn’t even exist when you were born… I watched the end of it in 1992! πŸ˜‰

    Amazon Rainforest: Because it stretches for hundreds of miles, nowhere mear any civilisation (apart from the tribes that are said to live in it :s ??) very hot & humid, mosquitoes and other nasties biting you all the time, constanly sweating, potentially dangerous flora and fauna, it takes you an hour to travel a hundred metres cutting through the thick shrubbery with your machete (if you have one), yeah, so sounds a great place to visit πŸ™‚

    Nice comment Alex, yeap one on my to do list, I agree with you, but rainforests aren’t classed as an extreme environment on the course.

    The Ocean: Our bodies are unable to take in the oxygen in the water, so we can’t thrive there. Some areas haven’t been explored yet, due to the fact that we lack the correct equipment to enter some of the deepest trenches and the deeper you go the pressure increases and the colder it gets.

  15. Posted September 21, 2008 at 3:43 pm | Permalink

    Yeah, great idea Natalie. Oceans are the last place to explore…

    ermm everyone took my ideas
    could you class bangladesh because it is on a low coast line even though people do live there disasters happen there all the time so makes it really difficult to live there .and if global warming carries on in bout 40years time it may not be there the sea will be there instead.

    Doesn’t matter Kristina, the idea doesn’t have to be original.

    Good choice and brings back memories.

    mountains -It’s not just the cold and snow, the chance of getting lost, or falling off a cliff Every year dozens of people are killed by avalanches.The people living near Mt. HuascarΓ‘n in Peru have suffered some of the worst avalanches in the world.the further you move up a mountain the harder it is to breath with less oxygen and colder weather x πŸ™‚

    England…. for other nationalities england could be bad because when its sunny it is relly bad sunshine and when it rains it rains very heavily and could be potentially difficult for foreign people to get used to!!!

    sir i just wrote hole page n thn deleted it i hope u know πŸ™
    … ill just have to right it all again πŸ™ … nottingham when theres a sale haha nr
    sahara desert .. the sahra is the leargest desert it would be hard to survive becuase there is not alot of water and with the sand storms tht oftan hit at night. without the right equipment you would not be able to service which would also be due to the hot climate in the day which gives a high risk of getting sun stroke

    the poles they are extremly cold an humans could not survive even an hour there without the correct equpment there are also broken off peices of ice in the middle of water, animals are becomin extinct because of global warming and Although the sun shines 24/7 in season, the rays hit at an angle and have to pass through more atmosphere than at the equator, this weakens their energy. To that, the ice of Antarctica immediately reflects most part of the rays back to space. this is why you would need the right equpment

    Antartica: It has freezing tempreture that we cant cope with and the sun only shines about one day a year and the rest are in darkness and the conditions there are really bad πŸ™‚

    The sea has to be an extreme environment, you can’t live on it or in it, unless your in a boat, and even then your boat can sink or you can be washed overboard, and then you drown. And its so big that if you do get lost in it your so far away from anywhere else with hardly any way of finding your way back to land that you will die of thirst. A nice place to get stuck really…

    Well done folks, some great comments here, not sure about Nottingham and England though πŸ˜‰

    Antartica: The climate in Antartica Is unbearable for us to Cope with (freezing). But with more and more technology is being developed and more and more people are stepping on Antartica.The sun is always low in the sky.But When the sun rays do reach the surface they are reflected by the white snow.This is classed as a extreme envrioment because our body cannot take the harsh conditions. Lol πŸ™‚
