Plastic free lunchboxes

Plastic free lunchboxes
At Kokatahi School we have an group called envirogroup.The Envirogroup goes round checking everybody's lunch boxes. If you get catched with plastic you will get a x but if you have no plastic you will get a tick. Our school is tiring to stop people from littering and destroying the environment.


If you have plastic packing make sure you don’t leave lying on the floor, you should take it with you  if you don’t want it go find a rubbish bin. If you destroy the environment we will be dead because there will be know oxygen.

Vas Kolovski gave Vanessa 3 wounds the first wound was broken the second wound was bendy and the third wound it was big but one side the white cap wasn't on but when he put the other one on the other side went flying off.

The Duck Creek Adventure

The
             Duck Creek
             Adventure    


Last week on Thursday in Kokatahi school the Kea Class went to Duck creek to see what type of invertebrates there are. We also went to see how clean the water was.

We caught the invertebrates in a kick net. This is how you use a kick net, you kick the rock in front of the net facing upstream so the invertebrates go in the kick net and some rocks.

The helpers were Miss Hinchliff , Jane , Katrina ,  Marein , Loren and Michelle. Loren helped me to use the kick net. My group caught invertebrates with the kick net like a dobsonfly, snails , worms and more. The dobsonfly does not fly over the creek like a real fly the dobsonfly is like an underwater centipede.

The kick net is black and white or gray. In the end we talked about what we caught then we let the invertebrates back in the creek. Duck creek comes from a small lake near Lake Kaniere.

Did everyone catch some invertebrates? I’m sure everyone had lots and lots of fun. You have to watch out for weeds and don’t forget to look in the grass by the creek you could find some invertebrates there.

Riparian Planting

Riparian planting is when you are planting along the river or creek. You should put a fence to block off the cattle, so the cattle does not wreck the plants you plant. The cattles poos and wees is nutrients for the soil. You don’t want cows in the water because they can poo and wee in the water.

The shade from the trees keeps all the fish that go under the trees cool. Do you want dead fish in your creek or river do you?

Planting by the creeks or river also stops erosion. You can plant by polluted river or creek or stream to stop the pollution. Erosion is dirt fulling in the creeks or rivers.

The Water Cycle

The
              Water Cycle
Have you heard of the water cycle? The water cycle is a cycle that never stops. The water gets evaporated or transported into the sky then it gets precipitated down to the ground.

Evaporation is when water turns into water vapor rises into the sky. Some of the water evaporates from lakes,rivers the sea.

Condensation is when tiny droplets cool down and forms a cloud. When the clouds get too heavy with water the water precipitates down to the ground. All the droplets stick together to make clouds.

Precipitation is when rain,hail,snow and sleet comes down. The water sticks together to form a bigger droplet. When the droplets get too heavy for the cloud the droplets come down as snow,hail,rain and sleet.

In conclusion the water cycle is a cycle that goes round and round and never stops. The water droplets in the clouds are  held up by warm air. All the water in the world is very very old.

I got all the information from this book

Earth’s Water Cycle
