Reading activity T1W4

For reading we have been reading a persuasive text about the Evil Drinking Fountain. We decided to write another persuasive text convincing someone the object we chose had a special power too. Here is my persuasive text about scissors.
We knew the scissors were evil because:

When I used the scissors for work I started to get a sore throat. An hour later I ended up going home, choking from the pain that invaded my throat.

When Austin used the scissors, he started to gag “ C-can’t breathe, can’t.. Breathe” people surrounded him as he suffered, people called for help, and others darted outside. Austin fell to the ground and a putrid green liquid escaped his mouth, people ran away in horror. it was horrible.

When Vetaia used the scissors, he just started to cough. Each hour the cough grew more hoarse and raspy. Vetaia wasn’t at school for a week, so all I can say Is that he did get sick from the scissors.
Now I think you’ve got the idea, I hope you believe me because those scissors ARE real. I…

Little Scientist Video

Image
In class for inquiry we did different science experiments. We had a go at making our own experiment. We used the Ipads to shoot scenes so we could make a video on how the experiment work and what you need for it. We then edited it on iMovie, we added music, titles and different themes to make it interesting.

Stop Motion Movie

In class we did a stop motion movie to show the stages of making a lego volcano. After we made the volcano we tipped 1 tsp of baking soda into the canister inside the lego volcano then we tipped1/4 of a cup of vinegar into the canister with the baking soda.




CC Search

I went onto the website CC search and typed up art. I found this piece of artwork I like. I like it because of the colours the artist has used to create the flower.

The Coke And Mentos Experiment

Image
In reading we did an experiment and a Padlet to show the coke and Mentos experiment. We used different flavours and they were: fruit, rainbow, chocolate, caramel and spearmint. We tipped 1/4th out of the bottle, then we labelled the bottles to show what Mentos we were going to put in them. First we experimented with the spearmint Mentos and it worked well. Next we did the fruit Mentos and it did the same as the spearmint Mentos. Then we did the chocolate caramel Mentos. At first it did nothing, but then it fizzed a little bit. After that we did the rainbow Mentos but it did nothing. After a few minutes it started to fizz. 

Visiting Grandad

Beep, beep, beep, the elevator had reached the ground floor. My stomach felt funny as me and mum walked out of the elevator. I just wanted to see Grandad, but all the other people stared at me and it made me feel dizzy. I was shaking rapidly, even though this was a family thing. I was light headed and breathing fast. I whispered to mum, "Can we go?" She said "Soon, ok." I couldn't take it anymore, these people were like zombies and I just wanted Grandad to get better, but it was too late.

Student Blogging Challenge Week 3

Today we learnt about a place called Creative Commons. On this website, you can use videos, images and music without special permission from the owner. People around the world upload images they are willing to share on Creative Commons. We watched a video on how to use Creative Commons. 

Here is the link to the video if you would like to watch: Creative Commons video

Here is a image I found on the website and I wrote about it.

"Ah, what a wonderful place to camp." Said my dad. We all agreed with dad, the view here was so lovely I could just jump into that waterfall. "Who's hungry?" Mum asked. "Dinner already?" My sister looked quite confused "I'm not that hungry,  mum," I said, "maybe I will explore this place." I ran off into the wild. None of them were looking at me, I thought maybe they didn't care, so I just walked far off. Squash, Squash. Oh no, …

Green Pastures Camp

Image
At the start of week seven, we had to come to school in our muffy clothes and have our suitcases and bags packed for camp at Green Pastures. We got transported in different parent's vehicles. When we got there I had no idea where to go because it was my first time there but I got used to it. We went into the dining room to get told the rules by someone called Liam who I think was the owner of Green Pastures. After 45 minutes or so we got to do our first activity, my groups one was the horizontal bungee, you had to walk as far as you could without being flung back by the bungee. My favourite activity was air-rifle shooting, I was quite good at it, I got the targets 2 times in a row and didn't need much help reloading the weapon.



Invisible Marble

Invisible Marble

Hypothesis: I think that the colour will wash away in the marble.

Materials: water, a cup and a marble made of special plastic.

Procedure: 1. Fill a cup up with water. 2. Get a special plastic marble. 3. Put the marble into the cup. 4. Wait a while and see what happens.

Observation: The marble sank to the bottom. The marble disappeared and there were air bubbles surrounding it. The marble soaked up the water and after a few minutes it grew bigger. The marble is squishy and clear, you can see through it. The marble remains invisible but if you put your finger in the cup you can feel it. Result: The marble pushed air into the cup which created air bubbles.
When it absorbed water the air bubbles were pushed away.
The marble is invisible because it has camouflaged into the water. Adaptation: I would use a different colour water and see if it turned the marble a different colour.
