UNSOLVED MYSTERIES (LOW B2)

moonrise stars Stonehenge Wiltshire England UK

  • Stonehenge is one of the most famous unsolved mysteries known to man that really defy rational explanation or are just outright strange.One of the major mysteries of Stonehenge was how it was built.The first stones, the bluestones were sourced from the only place in the UK where such stone exists. In Wales, nearly 200 hundred miles away….

UPDATESPIN6LISTEN TO THIS WEIRD SONG ABOUT STONEHENGE:

  • On March 8th 2014 we had the Malaysia jet mystery… How could a plane vanish?

    Intensive search efforts are under way to try and find flight MH370, which vanished from radar en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur over a year ago, with 239 people on board.

    None of the debris and oil slicks spotted in the water have so far been linked to the disappearance – but how could a plane vanish without a trace?Among the most pertinent unanswered questions: Why Flight MH370 flew so far off course without giving any indication of cause or purpose before it finally disappeared from radar scopes in the region. Some analysts looking at all the available information have concluded that it must have been deliberate. Conspiracy theories abound.

In the following two games they are asked to choose the correct form: either HOW MUCH or HOW MANY. Both of the games are in Flash and therefore they will play only on some mobile devices. However, the games will work perfectly on all desktops.

CLICK ON THE PICTURES TO GO FULL SCREEN AND PLAY THE GAME!!

The first game is called Penalty ShootOut. If you choose the correct answer you are given a chance to kick a penalty. Good luck
