Plastic in the air.

Lately, for a while now we have been learning about pollution and all the different types that can affect the world and the things living in it, we have our own groups I am in group five and we are focusing on Air pollution.
Firstly what is Air pollution, pollution is now a commonplace term, that our ears are attuned to. We hear about the various forms of pollution and read about it through the mass media. Air pollution is one such form that refers to the contamination of the air, irrespective of indoors or outside. A physical, biological or chemical alteration to the air in the atmosphere can be termed as pollution. It occurs when any harmful gases, dust, smoke enters into the atmosphere and makes it difficult for plants, animals, and humans to survive as the air becomes dirty.

what are the causes:

  • the burning of fossil fuels
  • agricultural activities 
  • exhaust from factories and industrials
  • mining operations
  • indoor air pollution
and the effects:
  • respiratory and heart problems
  • global warming 
  • acid rain
  • effect of wildlife
  • eutrophication
So these are all the problems of Air pollution and the effects are really bad towards us, so we need to try and stop air pollution before it becomes worse.
thanks for reading!

There is an awesome site that gives the prices, how its made and the history of the greenstone. I have a similar one to this one but its made from a whalebone.

ECO trip.


In Rimu this week we went to the waste management center to see how it works and what they do. We also learned about the 5 Rs reduce, reuse, recycle, recover And reduce disposal. We also went to the eco store and the eco drop to see what is good for our (pretend) flat we were moving into that could be reused. Then we went to the eco store to by some stuff for our flat, we had a $500 dollar budget. Bree and I were in a pair and our favorite product we found was the marble cups which were very pretty. here is a photo of me and Bree presenting.

william pike challenge

On Wednesday we went to Spencer Park for William pike challenge, we did teamwork activities and survival like activities. We were in groups with another school called rangi ruru Girls school, they were really nice and we had to be in groups with them. we did a lot of fun and weird activities, my favorite one was where we had to go to a certain part of the forest and build a little hut on the side of a tree, the hardest part of that was the team I had didn't listen to each others idea until the teacher decided to come and help. but overall the day trip was really fun apart from the part when we were heading back to school and I felt really sick.

Maths DLO


For maths this week we were learning about operations, which I'm not 100% sure what it is but I think a brief meaning of it is that it is a whole bunch of different math questions and styles popped onto one slide. 
We had to work our way across from yellow to orange and depending on who you are, it may be easy or hard.

Maths

This week in maths we were learning about measurement and we had to learn how to convert measurements or weights. here is and example of one I struggled a bit with, when converting cm to mm you have to times the cm with 10 and then there is your answer, E.G 7 cm to mm would be 70mm because when timeing 7 by 10 is 70 and the answer would be 70mm.
