1) What do you know about deserts and the life of nomadic tribes?
A: Nomads are people who travel round their country but do, not have a set home.
They move place to place to find food for themselves, food for their livestock, or earn a living. They live in tents and portable shelters. They use to travel by travelling in a boat walking or riding animals. Now they travel by truck or car.
Bedouin's live in the deserts of the North Africa and Middle East. They use to herd goats and camels. But some of them now live in cities. Baba thought that living as a nomad was very hard because you have to hunt all the time.
2) How did this help your understanding of the problems Baba and the nomads face in finding water to survive?
A: She was just made the leader because of her different coloured eyes and she was only twelve-years old. Your feet would get really sore because of the travelling across the desert everyday. Looking for water to survive. Because you need water for moisture in your body.
3) Why did the author not tell the reader what Baba saw?
A: To create suspense. To let the reader think about what it might be for themselves.
4) How does this use of alliteration help you visualise the grass?
A: It paints an image of the green wavy grass growing on the hot plain sand.
5) What other words that start with "L" could you add to the sentence to enhance the description?
A: Long, Lush Luxurious Grass.
