I n term 2 we did projects on a certain desert animal my partner was Aaliyah overall I think that we did very well our animal was the spinifex hopping mouse me and my partner made a diorama and a poster and made a PowerPoint to present our presentation. I think that me and my partner did really well on our information we went above expectations we crossed off everything in the Working above expectations column for information report. both of our diagrams were carefully drawn our model had labels and is lifelike i think that the overall level that i achieved was working above expectations
3 Facts That I Found Interesting Or Surprising Are
- That the spinifex hopping mouse kills its babies so that it is less crowded in the burrow and so that it is not that hot and sticky.
- that the spinifex hopping mouse has a tail that when at its full length can be twice the length of the body
- That the spinifex hopping mouse has very efficient kidneys that take out most of the water from its waste and then uses that water to help it survive.
2 Understandings That I now Have Are
- That the mouse finds its meals very easily because most of them are already in their burrow
- That the mouse would have to take more risks if it was not for its very efficient kidneys because if it did not have efficient kidneys then that would mean that it would have to go hunting more which would increase the risks
1 Wonder I Still Have Is
1 if the spinifex hopping mouse did not hop what pros and cons would there be?
What were the most important i have learnt
The most important thing that i learnt is that you should be more organised with your project and you should get into the habit of checking your email and double checking things
How Did I Learn That
i learnt that because i realize that i do not check my email often or that i forget too so that means that when i get to school i don’t know the information that my partner sent me and that you should double check things such as your cue cards when i made my cue cards i did not double check that i did them correctly and so that meant that when i practiced i did it all wrong.
What i am going to do with what i have learnt
i will work with a partner whenever i can to practice checking my email and i am going to remind myself to double check and remind my partner in future lessons/projects.
To summarize i learnt that you should double check things and be more organised with my email and that i should be more on top of my work and that i should note down things that i understand or facts that are interesting and questions about things a goal i have for the next time i work in a group is to communicate more with my partner/s.
Weedy sea dragons are little animals that live near the coast of Australia here are some facts understandings and a question about them
1 They are found mostly in the south and east coast but can be found north of Australia
2 They are related to sea horses
3 and they can really blend in with their habitat
One understanding is that weedy sea dragons are endangered and are harder and harder to spot and thats not because of their camouflage another understanding is that biologists have a very good idea to find out how many of them are left they ask scientists to go down find a weedy and take a picture then they can see the weedy and can count how many are left
One question i have is how many weedy sea dragons are there?

There once was a Eater an Eater is a ghost that posses things for example it could posses a bunch of newspapers the reason people call the ghost eater is because it eats as much as it can because the ghosts because they are dead can not have the joy of eating so they posses other things so that they can get as close to a meal as they can… Oh no thank you Will i am quite full there is no way i can eat that sandwich…No…..My….Arms….Paper…Eat…Must….Now….Burger
Today we went to Melbourne Aquarium we learnt a lot about adaptations.
In science we are learning about adaptations. Here is a definition of Adaptations:
Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them survive in their environment
here is the link to the aquarium click here
Today at the Aquarium we looked at a crocodile the croc was only one of the many animal that we saw but it wa very interesting and had lots of adaptations. One adaptation that the crocodile had was that its scales were very tough this would mean that it would be very hard to scratch it the. The croc also can lie still for a long time without moving it is cold blooded so it will have to stay still for a long time. The croc is also really good at camouflaging it can lie still and look like a log really well then when it sees any prey that is close it eats. If a croc eats a good sized meal it can survive without food for a year.
one fact that i learnt was that houses are definitely more expensive than it used to be and now another fact is that they are 30x more expensive one more fact is that some people make homes out of shipping containers or live in a boat one understanding is that the government is trying to find a solution another understanding is that this problem is not just in Australia one question that i have is that what is the governments plan?
