Volcanic Eruption

                                                                            Volcanic Eruption

We are learning to make an volcanic eruption with baking soda and vinegar.

Today in science my class and I did a experiment on volcanic eruption. We used a measuring tube a, beaker and a eye dropper. We tip a certain amount of vinegar into the beaker.  Then we used the eye dropper to fill the measuring tube up to 5 mm, after that, add a small amount of baking soda and that will cause a volcanic eruption.

A  real volcanic eruption will explode lava or magma, this lava or magma that comes out of the volcano is from the mantel, the mantel is the source of all earth volcanic eruptions.

Summer learning journey Activity 2: Living on the Edge [4 points]

On your blog, write a letter to your best friend or a family member, telling them about your trip to the Tundra. To earn full points, your letter must have a greeting (e.g Dear...) followed by 5 - 6 sentences of information about your experience.

Dear Mum, my trip to Tundra was an amazing experience. On my trip to Tundra, I learned that Tundra animals tend to have small ears and tails. Some also tend to have large feet to walk on the snow.
I learned a lot from tundra like flowers grow in tight groups to keep the warmth. Everything was so nice over there, but there was one thing that I hated the most in tundra was the cold, did you know that it can go 60 degrees F.  Tundra was a great experience.

Our your blog tell us whether you think logging should be allowed in New Zealand. Be sure to provide at least two reasons to support your argument.

I think New Zealand should not allow loggers because when they cut down the trees they not only affect the precious animals but it affects the oxygen for humans.

Loggers should only cut a little number of trees so the animals still have a place to live, a home.

For this activity you are asked to choose one of your favourite foods. On your blog, write the name of your favourite food and then tell us how to make it. You may need to ask a family member, friend or Google (!) for help, if you do not normally make this food for yourself.

My favorite food is eggs on toast because it smells nice, looks nice and best of all taste nice.
Stuff you will be needing to make eggs on toast: 
  • Toaster
  • Eggs
  • frying pan
  • bread
  • Option-Butter on toast
How to make eggs on toast:
Fry the eggs for about 2-3 minutes, after frying the eggs put it some where it will stay hot, then get out the toaster and grab out some bread and start toasting you bread, if you don't have a toaster just fry it or bake it.  
After toasting you bread, take out the eggs get the toast and put the egg on the toast and there, you have just made my favorite food eggs on toast. Enjoy. :)

Summer learning Journey Activity 3: The WWF: World Wildlife Fund [10 points]

Once you have watched the video, go to your blog and, using full sentences, tell us:
1) The name of the animal the WWF is working to save.
2) What the WWF is doing to help the animal.
3) What, if any, success they have had protecting the animal.
First clip:  They are working to save seals. The WWF are help by building snow banks for the seals. The seals make there snow bank to give birth so every now and then they check the snow banks but if theirs nothing there, there could be a chance the baby was born out of the snow bank where predators live and human disturbance, so if theirs a baby they know they have succeed.

Second clip: WWF are saving the tigers, they help the tigers by donating, searching for them and also saying "it doesn't madder where you are you can still help protect them", also when they make the trap unable to catch the tiger. When the tiger is caught on their camera they know they have succeeded in protecting it.
