Day 2: Protecting our own

Activity 1: A flying fox

I would love to go on the flying fox because it would be really fun.  I would see the trees going past me. I would be really fast and make it fun.

Activity 2: A Protective Plant
I have a bit of a garden myself but its only strawberries and tomatoes.  My brother has a bit of a garden because he is growing apples trees that are growing really well and he and my sister have pumpkins.  My mum has a big garden, she has corn, peas, carrots, potatoes, chives, mint, lettice, broccoli, red onions and trying to grow capisum.

Activity 3: A House is Not a Home
Conserving Chuilexi Conservancy within Niassa National Reserve
I have chosen this project because it's a bit interesting how they are protecting areas where animals are and if they didn't protected that area they would be killed. They are protecting Lions, Wild Dogs and elephants.

Day 1 Preserving the pass 

Activity 1: World of wearable 

5 questions I would ask Dame Suzie Moncrieff.

  1. What dress do you like best?
  2. What material did you use to make the dress?
  3. When did you start making dress?
  4. Where were you born? 
  5. How old are you?   
Activity 2: Guardians of the sea
No I don't believe there are Taniwhas.  Because I've never seen one and watching the video it could have been a big fish.

Activity 3: The Sky in Shanghai

China is a good place but
Having smog around the place would be terrible
I wish it didn't happen, China is a bit of a cool place
News says that the smog is killing people
And I'm a little bit scare about going there with the smog that's killing people.

Day 5 Here to Stay

Activity 1: Persistent Pollution 
Three new I learnt:

  1. Some pollution can be from volcanic eruptions or fires and allergens. 
  2. Greenhouse gas such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane and fluorinated oxide trap heat from the sun in the earth's atmosphere. This make high temperature for the earth.
  3. Warmer weather leads to more pollen, and then more pollen production. 
Activity 2: Changing Climates
Things I do on a rainy day
  1. Run around and made my parents mad.
  2. We play board games, cluedo, rummikub, yahtzee and cards
  3. Go on my chromebook
  4. Watch TV like spongebob square pants 
  5. Read books
  6. Sleep on my bed
Activity 3: Let it Rain
I opened the door and... I see trees with no leaves and the plants around me were all brownish and the ground wasn't like grass anymore.
I went out to the lake and went to see some fish and they were all dead.  That was terrible. I felt sad and annoyed by the acid rain.  My family were shocked. It smelled disgusting. 
When I went on my walk I find that all my familiar parts are gone. And now all my good views are not good anymore.  
I fell terrible all that fish are all dead and some of my favorite things are ruined. I hope this doesn't happen again. THE END

Day 4: Like a Scene Out of a Movie

Activity 1: The Southern Lights

Lighting up the lights
In the night sky
Guide the place
High in the sky
The sky is bright
Sky gone dark

Activity 2: The seven sisters

Mitai and his brothers went hunting then they found 7 beautiful women, then they fall in love except Mitai.  Then the men take them to their houses as wives and then women didn't let them eat.  Mitai  was getting interested  in the women as they never left their houses. Then one of the Mitai turned into a kereru and followed some fantails and the fantails turned into the women.  Then that man heard what the girls were saying about the men starving to death. Then he went back and told the men that they were going to make them starve to death. Then they made this magic net and then they scooped the fantails which were the women and then the women kept begging to get out to their husbands.  Then they brought them to the god of the stars.

Activity 3: Crazy, cool clouds

I choose picture 2. I see in this cloud is a tornado.
