Problem Solving - by AJ and ZANE

Today I worked together with AJ to create a DLO about the problem solving question we had this week. We both found this question really hard at first but then we figured out how to work out the problem. To solve this problem we used our fraction skills.

Zane - making connections

Today for reading we read a book called a Tour Like No Other. It was a very interesting book. it was talking about when  the All Blacks played South Africa. There was a problem because the South African didn't allow the Maori's to play so there was a lot of protesting. There were two protesters that stole a plane and  doped flour bombs and flares and did you know one of the flour bombs doped on a player. But after that they were  jailed for months.

Zane - Making Connections to when the wind blows

Making Connections
L.I. Identify connections text to text, text to world and text to self

Text to text

Text to world
Text to self
Something I have read or watched that is like this is...
Something I know about that is like this is...
My reaction to this story is...
I have read a book called Where Poppies Blow  by John Lewis-Stempel and there are plenty more like this book.I think that you should read the book when the wind blows.
The feud happening between south Korea and USA, if south Korea bombs the USA the USA is going to wipe them out.
This is like the feud between my sister and me. she always wins and there is a phone that i don’t get a turn on.

Reduce Reuse Recycle

Today I created this poster about what I think Reduce Reuse Recycle means. I had to check 3 sites for the same information and if it was the same I could use it. I think reduce means to use less of one thing, reuse means to use something more than once, and recycle means to use something again in a different way.

Current Events - ivory

Today Mataio and I read about why China is going to ban sales of ivory by the end of the year. I think they have made this choice to save animals with tusks and horns being killed by poachers. I hope by shutting down the 34 factories and 138 shops that make and sell ivory it stops this happening.
