Who Am I?

For the past previous week LS2 have been working on a challenge called Who Am I? This challenge is like Where Am I from but instead it is based on famous people around the world such as Tenzing Norgay, Nelson Mandela, Princess Diana etc. There were 10 people and for the task given we were to write down who they are, where there from, why are they famous, quote (if they have one), 5 facts about them, their country on google maps, their flag, and a picture of them. This was a lot of work which is why I was working with Ofa and Alex.

Where in the world am I

This Week Mrs Anderson has set a task for LS2 called Where in the world am I? This challenge has numerous of remarkable places in the world. What we were to do was find out what the place is, where the place is standing, when it was built, who uses the building and why is there or why is it built. We also wrote 5 interesting facts about that place/building. There were 10 different places in the world we worked on which was the Great Mosque of Heart, Eiffel Tower, Burj Khalifa, Statue of Liberty, Grand Palace, Buckingham Palace, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Mona Lisa, Taj Mahal, and the Sydney Opera House. We were to work with a partner which was called our ‘’travel buddy’’ and my travel buddy was Ofa. The most interesting building Ofa and I learnt about was the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We learnt that the Leaning Tower of Pisa was built 515 years old ago which was years ago. We also learnt that The Leaning Tower of Pisa wa just one of the buildings that is leaning there are other such as the Campanile of San Nicola, and the Campanile of San Michele.

Recipe for ANZAC Biscuit

This was my last activity and I chose to do Recipe for ANZAC Biscuit. I learnt that ANZAC Biscuit are made out of Oats, Coconut, flour, Sugar, Butter, Syrup, Baking soda and water. After I finished this activity I feel like I want to try and make own ANZAC Biscuit.

Alphabet Key of New Zealand

For my fourth activity for the City of Sails Challenge. I made a Alphabet Key of New Zealand. It was quite hard to find a word that start from X and Z but I manage to found it. Reason that I chose to do Alphabet Key of New Zealand is that I don't normally do so I thought it is a good opportunity to try new activity.

Welcome sign for someone who is coming to Auckland

One of the City Of sails Challenge I made a DLO that shows Welcome sign for someone who is coming to Auckland. The Haere Mai means Welcome and Tamaki macau rau means Auckland. The reason that I put silver furn is that Silver furn is our national leave.

Collage of Auckland

This week we were focusing on the City of Sails Challenge. One of the activity that I chose to do was to make a DLO that shows a Collage of Auckland. For my collage I put Auckland City, Harbour Bridge. Sky Tower, Britomart in City, One Tree Hill and ASB Classic.

Sir Ernest Rutherford

Today LS2 were put into groups of four and in those groups we were to research and then create a comic strip on a New Zealander that invented something, my group (Jeremiah, Fraidoon, Alex and I) chose to research Sir Ernest Rutherford. Sir Ernest Rutherford was the first person to split an atom, although he himself didn't split an atom he developed the theory that lead to the first atom being split. Sir Ernest Rutherford was born in New Zealand but later moved to England.
