Summer Learning Journey week 1 Activity 2 Day 2

One of the most popular activities in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, is called ‘Bullfighting.’ It has been a part of Spanish culture for centuries. In bullfighting people called ‘toreros and ‘matadors’ fight with a live bull. The toreros do most of the fighting and, ultimately, capture the bull and tie it up. Once it has been caught, the matador joins the fight and kills the bull. Although most toreros and matadors are men, there are some women who also compete in the sport.

Not everyone supports bullfighting in Spain. In fact, about 30% of the population want it to be banned (stopped) completely. What do you think? On your blog tell us whether or not you think that bullfighting should be banned in Spain. Please provide, at least, two reasons to support your decision.

Bull fighting should be banned forever
My reasons why bullfighting should be banned
1. Most bulls get killed in a fight if they get too aggressive and injure a person.
2. Bull's are almost becoming extinct, about 40,000 bulls are killed each year.
Fun fact: Bulls do not hate the colour red because they are colour blind. They get angry when the piece of cloth or flag starts to move rapidly due to the wind.

  1. Hi Falakiko,

    Thanks for posting this great blog. Not only did you clearly express your opinion but you also backed it up with facts.

    Well done. This is a great example of critical thinking at its best. Awesome work, Falakiko!
