A man walked into a bar and said ow.

Summer Learning Journey, week 3, Day 4, Activities 1,2,3

For the first activity I had to make an acrostic poem out of the word "LIGHTS" inspired from the southern lights or the " Aurora Australis".

L ively waves dancing across the sky
I ncredible colours flashing on my face
G rand movements like a ballerina in the sky
H appy, awestruck faces on people all around us
T angling together in a synchronised dance.
S ensation and calm washing all over everything.

For the second task I had to write a short summary of what happens in the book 'The seven stars of matariki'. In the book the main character is a man the youngest of his brothers Mitai who has magical abilities. Mitai is the youngest of seven brothers. His seven brothers think of themselves as the most handsome and strong people in the village because they are, because of this they don't marry anyone who is less beautiful than them. One day when they are hunting they hear the most beautiful singing, they decide to go and find the source of the beautiful voices. Once they find the source of the beautiful singing they are amazed, they find seven beautiful women with golden sparkling hair and pale shining skin, all of the brothers are absolutely amazed. Except Mitai he is suspicious. The seven brothers take the beautiful women back to the village and make them their wives, once the women are with the brothers the brothers do everything for them, getting them fish which was the only thing they eat, and doing everything the wives command. Mitai watches them closely, his suspicion growing , and he realizes they never seem to leave their homes, so one day he decides to keep a close eye on them, he notices six birds on a branch of the tree he was hiding behind. After a few moments the seventh bird comes out of Mitai's brother's home. He quickly transforms into a kereru and  follows them, after flying for a while the seven wives transforms back into women, they start to speak of their plan to starve the brothers to death. Hearing this he returns to his village and convinces his brothers that their wives are evil, once his brothers get convinced they go to the elder and get a magic net, using this net they capture the wives and take them to the star god, the star god also falls in love with the wives and agrees to take them but once a year he lets their beauty be shown to the world.

The next activity is a describing activity.
 We had to choose a cloud to desribe what you think it may look like and I chose this one: This cloud to some people may look like a tornado forming but to me it looks like a spinning top, or an upside down UFO. It also looks like an upside down ladies hat, the top half also looks like a mariachi hat.

Summer Learning Journey Week 3 Day 3, Activities 1,2,3

The first activity was to find a bird that you really like from this website and then write about it on our blog. The bird I chose was the Kea which is my favourite native bird of New Zealand. The Kea is the only parrot that lives in alps. It is a very cheeky bird also. Kea unlike other animals and birds Like to go near humans and take things from cars and phones and other human possessions. They do this because they live in a pretty tough environment and they need to learn about things to test if they are safe or not. The Kea eats carrion, berries, nectar, insects  and other things. The Kea has green and brown feathers on its body, and has orange and blue feathers on the wings.

The second task was to say what super power you would want ever. Mine would be shape shifting into any creature. I would like to shape shift because we have a lot of powers and abilities that normal superheroes do have for example: being a bird gives you the ability to fly and if you are a hawk or falcon or eagle you have good eyesight or if you are a cheetah you can run extremely fast. Another reason I would like to be able to shapeshift is because I would want to be my favourite animal.

The third activity was that we had to post a DLO of a Flying Animal. We had to have some attributed photos and a couple of facts. My attribution is below the poster I made.

Summer Learning Journey, Week 3, Day 2, Activities 1,2,3

For the first activity we had to fill in the blanks of these sentences about bumblebees with phrases and numbers given to us on the summer learning journey website.
The word ‘bumblebee’ is a compound word (bumble + bee). The word ‘bumble’ means to __________________________.

Bumblebees can fly very quickly. They can reach ground speeds of _______ kilometres per hour (km/h).

Bumblebees are very strong! They carry up to ____ percent of their body weight in food with them to avoid starvation.

Bumblebees can do more work and carry more pollen than other bees, including honeybees. In fact, they can do up to   ______ times as much work as a normal honeybee.

The number of bumblebees is declining in New Zealand due to a number of factors, including the  _____________________.
The first sentence is The word ‘bumblebee’ is a compound word (bumble + bee). The word ‘bumble’ means to hum, buzz, or drone.
The second sentence is Bumblebees can fly very quickly. They can reach ground speeds of 54 kilometres per hour (km/h).
The third sentence is Bumblebees are very strong! They carry up to 50% percent of their body weight in food with them to avoid starvation.
The fourth sentence is Bumblebees can do more work and carry more pollen than other bees, including honeybees. In fact, they can do up to 90 times as much work as a normal honeybee.
The fifth sentence is The number of bumblebees is declining in New Zealand due to a number of factors, including the  removal of wildflowers and flowering trees, habitat loss, and extensive use of pesticides.
The second task was to create a sink that we can put all of the food we don't like into it. I actually like a lot of things when it comes to food so the very few things I would put into my sink anything Pickled except pickled onions (those are delicious).
The third activity was a maths problem. If a classroom is filled with seven moulds or fungi and it takes 5 days to get rid of one mould or fungus. I figured out that this was a multiplication question so I multiplied seven by five and got 35. So that is the number of days it takes to get rid of seven fungi from one classroom.

Summer Learning Journey, Week 3, Day 1, activities 1,2,3.

For the first activity I had to tell the readers on my blog what Time of year i think they should come over to visit. I usually like early spring or late winter because you get to visit New Zealand in two of its main weathers because New Zealand seasons are basically just Winter and Summer now. That is the time of year I think tourist should come to New Zealand at.
The second activity was to list down five things we can do in the summer to keep ourselves from getting sunburns.
The first thing you can do is put on sunscreen all over that uncovered parts of your body and even a few centimetres into the opening of your clothes. Remember the sun can get to places you don't think it can.
The second way to look after yourself when in the sun is to keep on applying the sunscreen after the previous coat wears off. Just because you put on sunscreen doesn't mean you are immune to sunburn.
The third way you can keep yourself from getting a sunburn is if you keep most of yourself covered. That way you only need to coat some areas of skin.
If you haven't go sunscreen on you you can cover yourself with something like a blanket or an umbrella.
The last way to take care of yourself if you don't have anything like sunscreen or an umbrella is to simply stay insode with a fan or air conditioning on.
For the third task we had to post a picture of a graph with this information: The hottest temperature on record in each place is: Dallol: 41oC; Dasht-e Loot: 71oC; Tirat Zvi: 54oC; Kabili: 55oC; Bandar-e Mahshahr: 51oC. I did the graph in that order.
