Science experiment .

Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.
Today I rated myself at multi-structural for making slime and then tipping it on Mr Anderson because I was thinking about the slime and I reckon the slime was sticky, messy and cold.

Week 2: Balloon Rocket experiment
Jonty and I got put in a group to do an rocket balloon experiment. We failed in many ways: first of all the balloon popped. For seconds the string snapped and third of all the string snapped again.  Then finally we got it set up but then it was pack up time. So we did nothing. ☹️

Week three: balloon rocket experiment
Jonty, Kingston, Brent, Tom and set up all our stuff for another week of the balloon rocket experiment but this time. We were using fishing wire and we put a piece of paper on the front of the balloon we recon it span and then went like 2 centimeters.
When we set It up again because the fishing line is see through a biker biked through it and broke it.

Term reflection

At the start of the term I was unistructural, because I only picked up rubbish, I didn't care about doing anything else (I was a bit lazy). Now that we have learnt why we should do I changed my attitude to relational because I know heaps of different ways to care for the environment and why I should do it, for instance I pick up rubbish (obviously), I don't litter and I walk as much as I can to stop gas pollution. Then people will copy me,  then people will copy the person who copied me and soon every body will be doing it and the environment will be clean.

Responsible citizen

A responsible citizen cares for the environment. One way a responsible citizen cares for the environment is by reducing the amount of water he or she uses. When you are brushing your teeth, turn off the water and fix any leaks around your home. Another way of caring for the environment is by reducing pollution by travelling by bike, scooter or walking whenever possible. This has the added bonus of keeping you healthy by burning off some extra calories. Driving a diesel car produces as much pollution as a bus, so if you need to travel by car, drive a petrol one. Better still buy an electric car!

A responsible citizen follows rules and laws.  If most people didn’t obey rules and the law there would be chaos as people would not be able to agree on how things should be done and so nothing would get done. There would be conflict which would lead to fighting and may be another world war!

Responsible citizens show manaakitanga. This means they show respect for each other and care for each other. Keeping someone company when they are having a tough time is a way of showing manaakitanga.

If we all try to be responsible citizens, step by step we will grow stronger communities and protect our environment.

Going hard out

On a summer afternoon, I trace the steps I have taken so many times before to the golf course. I tee off from hole 1. I drive, pitch, chip and putt my path to my second hole.
Again I drive, pitch, chip, Powerade break, putt, almost an exact replica of the first hole. On the last 18th hole,  the starve of my tummy drives me home.

I'm a three wheeled motorbike

I am a three wheeled motorbike,
 each wheel for a purpose.

I am in my house,
cozy and warm.

I am $50, 
chi-ching making money.

I am a orange, 
pumping kids to their full momentum.

I am a burger,
with heaps of bacon.

I am jeans,
dirty and rusty.
