DAY 3: Awesome Animals

Activity 2: The Secretive Skink [4 points]
We have a number of small lizards (geckos and skinks) living in New Zealand. One of the least common is the Chevron Skink. According to the Department of Conservation, Chevron Skinks live mostly on two islands - Great Barrier Island and Little Barrier Island. These islands are ‘animal reserves.’ Very few people, other than staff working for the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC), are allowed to live there. The DOC staff are called ‘Rangers.’ Their job is to protect the wildlife (animals and plants) living on the island.
Would you like to be a DOC ranger and live with the animals on Great Barrier Island?

On your blog list three pros (good things) and three cons (bad things) about working as a DOC ranger. At the bottom of your post, tell us whether you would like to be a DOC Ranger or not.
1 reason : My reason why I don't want to be a Doc ranger.Cause I could get eating by a loin.And other species too unless if it's a harmless bird and cats too.

2 reason: My other reason why I don't want to be a Doc ranger.Is that when I'm going to study about tigers.It might look at me then chase me and I might be the tigers meal.

3 reason: My last reason is that if I go to sleep the predator might smell me and rip open my tent.I take to there babies then kill me.That's why I don't want to be a Doc ranger.

1 reason : The reason why I want to be a doc ranger so I can study about the animals species .So I can find there special inside and outside about them.

2 reason : and my other reason why I will like to be a Doc ranger is that if the lions let me near there babies.I could study about them and learn lots of things.

3 reason: Lucky last reason I like to be a Doc ranger to learn and to make sure that the babies and the mothers are safe but have to beware of the father.

TASK DESCRIPTION: For my task for SLJ is that I have to write 3 reason why I want to be a Doc Ranger or not.Leave a comment.

A big thank you to My teachers

DAY 3: Awesome Animals

Activity 1: Fantastic Beasts [4 points]

In New Zealand we have many unusual animals. One of the most unusual is the kiwi bird - a bird that does not have wings and can not fly. Pretty strange, eh?! J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books, has recently written a new book about strange or unusual animals called ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.’
For this activity, please watch this cool book trailer. Year 7 and Year 8 students in South Auckland, New Zealand helped to make it. Once you have watched the video, use your imagination and create your very own beast. What does your beast look, smell, feel, and sound like?

On your blog, post a description of your beast. Use interesting adjectives (describing words) to tell us about your beast.
My Beast is a mix of animals.The body is a pig and the teeth is a loin teeth. I couldn't find any so I pretend they are.I use the monkey as a head so it can suit with the body pig and the teeth as well.And the last part is a pony tail I use pinkie pie  tail  so it can be a part of the whole mix.

TASK DESCRIPTION:For my task is to use lots of detail that goes with my beast that I created.It look's scary to me.Leave a comment

Day 2: Forest Life

Activity 3: Weird and Wonderful [10 points]
New Zealand is just one of many countries that has amazing plants and trees. In fact, the African desert is home to some pretty incredible plants, like the cactus. Some cacti are able to survive on as little as 3 millilitres (ml) of water a day. Wow!
Let’s imagine that you are given a cactus for your birthday. To keep it alive, you must give it 3 ml of water every day.
Over one full year, how much water will you need to give your cactus plant?
On your blog, tell us how to solve this maths problem. You can write your answer in words, use a Sketchpad image, or post a video explaining how you would figure it out. Be sure to give us your final answer in millilitres (ml).

So I did 300 divide by  900 = 3  or I can switch it around to 300 x 3  = 900 cause it really doesn't look  right.Then  I did  60  x 3 = 180 and so 3 x 5 = 15. SO I add 900 + 180 + 15 = 1095.

Cause to make the whole thing to connect with this is to think that the whole year is 365 days am I right.So I spit it up to three numbers 300 , 60 and 5 so I use time tables to connect with this work 

TASK DESCRIPTION:For my other task is that I have to slove something very hard till I use google to help me how many in a year .Cause I forgot about how many is in a year so it shows up a 365 days.Leave a comment

Merry Xmas to SLJ

DAY 2: Forest Life

Activity 2: Fabulous Ferns [4 points]

One of the most common plants found in New Zealand forests is the fern. It is a special, iconic symbol of New Zealand. You will find pictures of ferns on the jerseys of many famous sporting teams in New Zealand, including the New Zealand All Blacks.
Did you know that many of these teams also have the word ‘fern’ in their name? Use your best researching skills to find three New Zealand sporting teams who use the word ‘fern’ in their title.
On your blog list three sports teams that have the word ‘fern’ in their title. Beside each team’s name, post a picture of their uniform. Then, at the bottom of your blog post tell us which of the three uniforms you like best and why.

Day 2: Forest Life

DAY 2: Forest Life

Activity 1: Giants Among Us [4 points]

New Zealand has a really special environment. Many of the plants and trees found in New Zealand are not found anywhere else in the world. These plants and trees are endemic to our country.  In New Zealand, one of the largest and longest living endemic trees is the NZ Kauri tree. Kauri are mainly found in three regions of New Zealand: the Coromandel, Auckland and Northland. The largest Kauri tree in the country is in the Waipoua Forest in Northland. It is called Tāne Mahuta. Some people refer to it as the ‘Lord of the Forest.’
Thousands of people go to visit Tāne Mahuta every year. Would you like to be one of those people who got to see Tāne Mahuta in real life? Why or why not?

I like to go to Tane mahuta one day .Cause I  think that it is amazing place. There's lots of trees and ferns too.I like to be that person to go see Tane mahuta one day and take a photo.
TASK DESCRIPTION: Before I went there the tree was pretty big and tall I didn't know which tree it was.Till my grandpa said " it's over there" my eyes were shock.Leave a comment.

DAY 1: In the Beginning...

Activity 3: Ice, Ice Baby [10 points]

Antarctica is the world’s coldest continent. Even though it is made up of ice, it is also the driest continent in the world. In fact, it hasn’t rained there for nearly 2 million years! It is home to many animals such as whales, seals, birds, and fish. There are no permanent human residents (people who live there all the time) in Antarctica, however scientists do visit and stay in Antarctica for a while to study it.
This year the airline, Air New Zealand, filmed their safety video in Antarctica. They used some fabulous actors from Hornby Primary School in Christchurch. Just like on aeroplanes, we also need to keep safe and be smart online. We need to think about the type of information we are sharing online, who we are sharing information with, and how to have a positive digital footprint.

DAY 1: In the Beginning...

Activity 2: North and South [4 points]
The country of New Zealand is made up of two main islands – the North Island and the South Island. Approximately 77% of the New Zealand population live in the North Island. Many of these people (including our Summer Learning Journey design team) live in Auckland city. Auckland is a great place to live with lots of amazing parks, beautiful waterways and stunning scenery to enjoy. It is also a busy, vibrant city with many cafes, museums, galleries and theatres to visit. I feel lucky to call Auckland my ‘hometown.’

Task description:Kia ora my Hometown is Rarotonga That's part of my favourite culture of all.I wrote  some  things that are speacial to me and my family I like dancing.Leave a comment

Activity 1: The Legend of New Zealand

According to Māori mythology, much of Aotearoa New Zealand was formed when Māui, a powerful demigod, fished it out of the sea. Legend has it that Māui created a magical fish hook from the jawbone of his grandmother and that one day he took his hook, boarded a boat, and rode out into the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Once at sea, he threw his magical hook into the water and caught a fish. This ‘fish’ was actually the North Island of New Zealand! In honour of this legend, the North Island of New Zealand is sometimes referred to as Te Ika a Māui or ‘Māui’s fish’ and the South Island of New Zealand is sometimes referred to as Te Waka a Māui or ‘Māui’s canoe’.

Fire in Rm 4

Have you  seen a light up tea bag before?Well in my class my teacher Mrs stone and our class mate terry had done a light up tea bag.I thought they were going to set fire in the building,But they didn't. So what's solid? solid is a hard thing for example: ICE,Ice has  atom what is atom? atom are small things around us.So to switch to water into steam is by heat and energy.Solid only has small amount of energy.What about water? Water has the same atom but diffident amount of energy,The atom has  some space  to move around.Lucky last is gas,gas atom is very free they can go every where.

When we set the teabag on fire it flew up into the air. This happened because the air inside the teabag heated up and the atoms got more energy so they wanted to spread out more. The air of the tea bag was hotter  from the inside and the  air of  the out side  is not hot it kinda feels warm and has less energy.
