where angels fear to tread

Task 3:

Where angels fear to tread


This task is about reading to find information and make inferences.

Read ‘Where angels fear to tread‘, then answer the following questions.




How old is Ngorongoro Crater?

 2 million years old this is implied near the end of the fourth line in the text





What word does the writer use in the middle of the story to indicate that he wasn’t scared of buffalo?

Only because it implies that they were scared of a lion but they didn’t know the dangers of a buffalo running them over 



c) What would have been a useful item to take on the walk to the lodge?
  A flashlight so they could see the way to the lodge because in the text it implies that it was very dark because the clouds were covering the moon and the stars



d) Explain how the saying in the final line, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, goes with the story.

“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” refers to a person who behaves impulsively; they don’t think before reacting. The saying goes with the story because a group of people, Halina and the speaker travel to Africa before knowing very little about it e.g. dangers, animals, people.


This line goes with the story because she never researched or got told that buffalos could 


 Be really dangerous but she was acting like they weren’t  dangerous or as the story implies


 “I waved them down like a flock of new zealand sheep” this means they were foolish 


 Enough to think that they were not as dangerous as lions even though they were more dangerous. 


e) What two lessons could be gained from this story?

       i. I learned that we could be more smart if we were to go on a vacation 

       Ii. i also learned that at night time if you can’t see anything than you have to be more careful because you might run into something dangerous
