Up Coming Science Fair

Kia ora everyone,
This term we have been focusing on the up coming science fair. My group is doing a bottle rocket, a bottle rocket is a bottle filled with baking soda and vinegar with a quark on top of the lid. It also has pencils stuck to the the side with duck tape for stabilisers to support the bottle when its being tipped up- side down. The members in my group are ,Rico,Tae & T.A. Here is a picture of my reading group doing one of our experiments.

Our Science experiment

Kia ora

We have been doing science experiments in preparation for the science fair. We had to reassemble a mixed up report to help us learn how to read and write them. Then we had to use the information to do a floating and sinking experiment using Blutack.

Learning how to read a scientific report.

Kia ora
We are learning how to read and write scientific reports. We have been doing experiments and writing about them. This is a reading activity we did. We had to be able to match a title for a report with a wondering question.

We are learning how to understand the structure and language of a report about a scientific experiment.
In this exercise you need to match a title with its question. Use the ‘Fill tool’ to colour code the matching ideas.
Notice that none of these questions begin with a ‘Why….’.  This is because the purpose of a scientific experiment report is to share what you thought you knew, what you thought would happen and your observations about what actually did happen. It’s a bit like you are saying:
I’m wondering this…..because I know this…...so therefore if I do this I think this might happen.
So, at the end of a successful scientific report, you may not be able to say why something happened but you will be on the way to finding out why.
Then, when you do find out why, you will have to learn how to write an Explanation. The purpose of  Explanation writing is to answer Why questions. So, do not be surprised if your teachers decide to teach you Explanation writing later on!!!

Zoofari

Kia ora
This week we drove to Auckland Zoo to go on an epic Zoofari!!! When we got there we were introduced to the old elephant house where we saw a young lady named Tasha. She explained the rules about the Zoofari and told us where we were going to sleep. We all had a FANTASTIC time on the Zoofari and saw a lot of animals that none of us were expecting to see!! 

I recently finished an animal report about a panda. Little did I know that I wasn't going to see a black and white panda.....but I did see a red panda! It was so fast!!!  
Ka Kite ano.

My chimera art

This is my chimera art,It is part lion part eagle and part human i'm proud of It
My Chimera Art
A chimera is something that is at least two creatures combined. It is usually fearsome and cunning beast but It depends on what you are imagining/creating but its up to you,if your chimera is harmless,dangerous or caring(but only to its owner). My chimera personally is part lion (with a sparkling gem on its head),part human and part eagle (with swords on Its wings), It also has five tails. So there you you have it whether its panda monkey or a dragon or even a ant,we all love chimera!
