Overall I was glad to play in my first flute concert.

Micro-worlds

Session 3

Today we built our Initials for Microworlds. Mine are L,N,P. The P was probably the most hardest because it had a curve to make. As you can see I had a little bit of trouble finding the space.

What I am Learning about Me and My Place

The watherong people lived here about 200 years  ago. They were experienced in seeing more plants than people. There life was a lot more harder. There entertainment most of the time had to be  social. I learnt that the history of my place was each getting a little more simpler. I have learnt that I come from Heidelberg hospital. I have learnt that  I have moved about 8 times! In the future I we would like to see people respecting each other and helping  each other. I have learnt that changes will always happen If not well there would be no space nothing would live nothing would happen nothing would exist! I also learnt that in the future we would be needing heaps of air like china buying air off Australia.

POT TO PLATE RECIPE/DAY

On Friday Year 4 Enviro had a majestic feast and I took part of it.

We had to make something that included our pot to plate ingredient we grew which is a project we were working on that teaches us how to grow a vegetable, harvest it and then eat it. MDSCN0230ine was carrot and I made a carrot cake.

The ingredients were: olive oil to grease, 2 carrots, 1 cup of Self Raising flour, 1 half cup plain flour, 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate soda, 1 half teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 half cup of brown sugar, 3\4 teaspoon of olive oil, 1 half cup of golden syrup, 3 eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence.

This is how we make it

After that it made this:

Mulch’o’Mania

Today (12/10/2016) Year 4 went to the Drysdale Resource Recovery Centre and the Moolap  Mulch Centre. First the teachers organised two groups: group 1 and group 2, (I was in group 2) Then we went on the bus.

First we went to the Drysdale Waste Recovery Centre. We got a tour from a worker called Ray. He told us that we were making too much rubbish and we were ruining the environment.

Then we went to the Moolap Mulch Centre. We were shown all the garbage that came from several suburbs. It was very interesting and revolting that people do not care about all the stuff they are wasting and that it could be recycled into all different types of things.

After that we took a look at the mulch made out of the wood of old houses. You are probably thinking: “how does this happen?” Well they use a machine. It sort of shreds the pieces again and again and again and so on. Making it thinner and thinner and so on.

Then we saw the green waste section. It had heaps of trees and plants and stuff. I eventually realized that the top of the piles of green waste were smoking. They were smoking because it was hot on the inside. Adrian our tour guide told us that eventually they would catch FIRE!.

After the whole thing I enjoyed going to landfill because it was the first one I had ever gone to in my entire life.

ROBOTICS INVESTIGATION.

 

What is a robot?

A robot is a auto-mated device which can be controlled either Remotely or manually.

What is needed to make a robot work?

I strongly believe that the main things needed to build a robot is: an idea, a design, a structure,something to build the structure, a programming device, a source of power and a code.

What is an program?

A program is basically an input for all your commands for the robot, but it cant be done in any old English. You have to write it in a special robot language called: coding.

Why do you think people invented robots?

I can actually think of 4 reasons

  1. To do work instead of us.
  2. To entertain.
  3. To do things that we cant or stuff to dangerous for us.
  4. To save on money on employees.
