Weekend task.



Now that we’ve had a look at how to log in to the school blog, here is another short task for you to do!

Look at these two pictures. One picture is of New York City (which is in the state of New York!)  and the other is taken in the state of Texas.

Your task is to explain which state you would prefer to live in using no more than 120 words.

Think about: What are the advantages and disadvantages of living in each state? Why would one state be better than the other? What would make you want to live there?
