Look after your Environment

    Look After Your Environment
In my opinion, I think you should look after your beautiful Environment. If you don't look after your environment it would be a big dump.Some believe that they shouldn't put it in the bin then again the world would be a mess.

Sometimes I feel sad when people don't put the rubbish in the bin. Because the world would be a big bump and a mess from other people. Also if it's from you maybe you need to stop and think for a while.

If you are watching people dump rubbish in the clean waterways because it makes it dirty. So please keep the rivers clean.In my opinion, I think that everyone should put their rubbish in the bins.

It is bad for the environment if you just throw your rubbish in the water or on the ground. You should throw it in the bin so other people don't have to pick it up themselves.

So never throw your rubbish in the water or on the ground. Water is important so never throw it in the water because you will pollute the water. If you throw rubbish on the ground you might pollute the air and we might need masks. If the air is polluted and we don’t have masks we might die.
You should always look after our Environment otherwise if it’s you, stop now.

Normally the city people blame the farmers for polluting the rivers but it’s everyone doing it. Do you want to pollute the rivers and the air?

So please always look after the environment or it would be a dump of rubbish.

 Magic show
Yesterday afternoon Vas Kolovski a magician came to
Kokatahi school to show us some tricks in the Hoiho class. Vas kolovski had a bunny and a pink bird also there were some people that went up on stage.

The people were Dom, Alanna, Lucas, Vanessa, and Matthew. It was awesome he got different color paper strips and he put them in water and took them out.

After that, he scrunched them up into a ball and blew on them so all of them turned to butterflies and they were not wet.

Vas kolovski also taught us don’t eat junk food always eat healthy food. He had a plastic plate and it had dairy, veggies, fruit, proteins, and grains.

My favorite magic trick was when he got the animals and he saw an imaginary bird and burnt himself.
This is what you will look like if you eat too much junk food
                         This is a magic trick that he did with some colored paper.
            This is Matthew up with him and dressed up and zinc means a mineral

  Duck Creek Adventure
On Thursday the Kea class went to Duck Creek. There were six helpers Katrina, Miss Hinchliff, Jane, Marion, Lauren, and Michelle.

My group found a Dobsonfly and it has 22 legs.There were three water surface invertebrates which are the boatman, backswimmer, and water surface bug.

My group got a Dobsonfly, Mayflies, Large Stoneflies and a Cased Caddis. Lauren and Michelle came from  Doc we got some equipment like kick nets containers and magnifying glasses to look close up.

You don’t want water Boatman, worms and flies in your creeks or river because they are bad for the river and creeks. If you find red roots growing into a white flower with yellow in the middle it is poisonous. Duck Creek is a very clean water way.

My group found four invertebrates.  I felt happy and excited to catch some invertebrates.  We all liked going to Duck Creek it was awesome.

Riparian Planting
Riparian planting is when you plant bushes around rivers and put fences around the bushes. They do it so the animals don’t poo or wee in it.

Fish always need cold water because if they get too warm they could die. We don’t want our rivers and lakes to get polluted by poos and wees.

Also planting by rivers stops erosion. If banks fall into the river the fish in the creeks will not be able to see.

We have to start planting more trees next to the rivers. It is important to plant more trees so the creeks are fresh. I  think that most people don't do it often.

 Fish will always need to survive because it’s good for our environment. We don’t want wees and poos to go in our rivers or lakes. I think it’s a very good idea stopping the animal getting in the creeks and lakes.

Water Cycle Information Report

The water cycle is a cycle that goes round and round and never stops. The order is evaporation, condensation, and precipitation.Did you know 67% of water is in us?
Evaporation is when the sun hits the water and turns into water vapor. After the water vapor goes up to the sky.

Transpiration is when the water comes off the leaves and also evaporates.

Condensation is when the water vapor makes little droplets and forms a cloud.The cloud is so little at first but then they get bigger.Did you know there is 97% in salt water and 2.4% is in frozen water?

Precipitation is when the clouds get too heavy with rain.The clouds could rain, sleet, hail, and snow. Groundwater is water under the ground that seeps into the ground.

The water cycle is a cycle that goes around and around but never stops. We can’t get any more water or less because the water cycle will keep it going.
