LINK: Earthquakes

Summary: Red

Recalls: Sky blue

Questions: Gold

Insight: Navy Blue

This text was about how Haiti’s earthquake did more damage then the one in Chile even though the one in Chile was stronger [in force]

1.When an earthquake hits it is most likely to cause a tsunami if the state/country is near water

2.In Haiti the earthquake killed 250,000 people

3. The earthquake in Chile was 500 times more powerful then the one Haiti but only killed about 500 people 

4.The earthquake in Chile went for 1 minute

5. When the earthquake in Chile was happening it was so strong it nearly change earths rotation.

6.When earthquakes go off families might get broken up

7.An earthquake is measured on the richter scale

8.Chile is located in the ring of fire [a place where earthquakes are more likely to happen]

9. Even though the one in Chile was earthquake was stronger it came down to money because  for a building to be stable or near stable you need to use money to by steel to re-in-force  the building 

Do earthquakes happen out of the ring of fire?

Which earthquake caused the most destruction?

When an earthquake happens people will be scared as the don’t know if it is a big earthquake or a small one

Old Man Saltbush Project Reflection

In term 2 we were learning about desert environments to see how much we learnt we were told we had to do a project about an animal/plant that lives in the Australian desert. In this project we had to include a model and much more. For this project I was working with Chiara and we got a plant it was the Old Man Saltbush when we were doing ours we got really creative and started using a new app for the model it was a little challenging but we enjoyed it.

Here are some things that I learnt from the project:

Some cool facts that I learnt:    

  • The old man saltbush has male and female plants the females are the ones that reproduce.
  • The old man saltbush leaves can live for a long time.
  • The old man saltbush is 1 of 250-300 species of saltbush

What I understood

  • The Old man salt bush is a very special plant but one of the reasons why it’s still alive is how it keeps its water the way it keeps its water is because of the salt in the leaves as the salt makes the leaves shrink and that means less surface area so it will less will be in the sun so it keeps more water
  • The Old man salt-bush is a very special plant as it is both male and female It has this so only 1 type of flower reproduce

1 Question

  • Does the old man salt bushes leaves show what their gender is when their young?

What was the most important thing I learnt:

  • The most important skill I learnt was not to over think things lucky Chiara always stopped me from worrying or over thinking to much.

How did I learn it: 

  • I learnt this by having someone to stop me from over thinking after awhile I didn’t need someone to stop me from over thinking.

 How will this help

  • Not over thinking will stop me from panicking to much and not worrying to much it will also help me in ToM as I will be able to clear mind and focus on whats happening now and not in the future

Book reviews

The Series of Unfortunate Events: The Austere Academy by Lemony Snicket’sImage result for the austere academy

Preview of pervious books:

In the series the Baudelaire’s have got the horrible news that their parents perished in a fire so they only have their fortune but they can’t use it till they are old enough so sent to live with their horrible relative Count Olaf and Olaf is trying to get his hands on there fortune and everywhere they go he follows creating mischief.

Lemony Snicket has done it again in this book Violet, Klaus and Sunny are sent to boarding school where there motto is you will die but that’s not the least of their concerns as they have a new gym teacher Coach Genghis who looks quite a lot like Count Olaf but luckily they have their friends Isadora and Duncan who are triplets [you will see why they are triplets in the book.]

I absolutely loved this book as it always had an unexpected turn of events also in this book the descriptions are amazing there are so many descriptive words I would recommend this book to anyone even adults as it just shows that how unfortunate someone’s life can be.

I score this book a….

Image result for 5 stars
