Unidentified flying objects are going to be the topic of our literacy work for the next few weeks.  Do you believe?  


Here are some of the class’s thoughts for and against.

UFOs are real It’s all a hoax
Space is infinite – and there are astronomical numbers of stars and planets – so there might be other life in the universe even if we have no proof

US and other governments might have secret information about UFOs

Some photographs of UFOs look realistic (although photos of aliens mostly do not)

There have been too many unexplained sightings of UFOs by too many different people for it to be a hoax

There are microorganisms in space – there could be alien microorganisms

Some of the photographic images are obviously fake

All images – even old ones – can be photoshopped

Some people might report UFOs to get publicity

There’s not been enough time since the ‘Big Bang’ for alien life to develop technology to travel across the universe
