Ola today we are in Portugal 14th and 15th century to be exact. we are following the life of Ferdinand Magellan an explorer for Spain as his own country Portugal wouldn’t fund his expeditions. He was born into a wealthy Portuguese family of merchants he became a skilled sailor and naval officer for Spain as the king at the time in Spain was king Charles The I selected him to find a westward passage to the Maluku Islands (other wise known as the spice islands) with a fleet of five vessels he journeyed into an uncharted strait which was later named after him. there were many mutinies eventually he reached the spice islands and started his journey home to Spain using the eastward part to get back completing the first circuit of the Globe. sadly he did not return home to Spain as he was killed in the battle of Mactan in the Philippines on the way home.sick du

Travel Journal Argentina

Nov - 03 2015 | no comments | By

ching changHola guys Today I am doing my Travel Journal again. This time it is on Argentina. Argentina is located in South America it was Originally named Argentina by the Spanish settlers because they believed the country was full of Silver (Argentina is related to the word Silver in Spanish). The focus of my blog today is Iguaçu falls it is one of the biggest attractions in South America probably the biggest considering it’s 82 meters tall, 700 meters long and 150 meters wide. Iguaçu falls makes up 1.7 miles of the Iguaçu river and has at least 275 water falls!!! Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. There is an ancient tribal legend depicting that a powerful deity planned to marry Napini the most beautiful woman on the earth but she already had her own lover and tried to canoe to the other side of the river where she would meet her lover but the god got angry and was determined to marry her and he sliced the river in half so that she fell down to the falls, her lover scared for his life ran away and the deity married Napini who swore to never love .again. Now scientist believe that Iguaçu falls was actually a earth quake which erupted a volcano and split the ground under the river in half causing the river to collapse on its self.

Gorilla research (Z00 Excursion project)

Oct - 08 2015 | 1 comment | By

At school we are going on an excursion to the Z00 and had to pick one of the highlight animals to research and I choose the lowland African Gorilla otherwise known as a  Gorilla. (there is also a Eastern lowland gorilla)( Graurer’s gorilla) Here is my research so far.

1. The western lowland gorilla is primarily native to the swamps and lowlands of central Africa in Angola and the Cameroon.

2. like most Great apes gorilla’s arms are longer than there legs so that the can walk quadrupedally and support their ginormous weight on there knuckles.

3. gorillas (eastern gorilla) can be found in Equatorial Guinea.

4. if you meet a gorilla the best option is not to run it is to stand still and look at the ground it should become curious and walk over to you if it does kneel and slowly reach out your hand and groom its hair it will take this a sign that you are of a lower rank to the gorilla.

5. When scientist put human DNA to gorilla’s DNA they found that gorilla’s are the second closest relative to human just in front of Orangutans and just behind the Chimpanzee.

6. ever heard that a gorilla’s favorite food is a banana well there most common food is actually  bamboo and fruit makes up only 7% of their diet!

7. There are 4 subspecies of gorillas 3 of those are critically endangered and are losing numbers fast with about 790 to 800 left in the wild.
