on my 5th birthday i had a massive cake with 5 massive candles. when everybody was singing happy birthday i couldn’t wait to blow the candles but before i could i had to make a wish. i made a wish and then i blew all 5 of the candles. all of sudden Katy who was my best friend started screaming. she had some fire on her t-shirt. now that i look back at it it wasn’t that much fire but because i was 5 i thought it was a lot. everybody was panicking and screaming. Katy eventually got the fire of her t-shirt by pouring her cup of cordial on it.
I finally lost my job today. This is how it went.
it was nearly the end of work and I was so excited that I could leave these kids when I heard a girl screaming. I ran to her and she was crying on the grass, her parents were already there. while her parents were screaming at me I realized that the horse the girl was on was gone and then all the other kids starting screaming and all the other horse’s left. Everybody called the police and it was on the news and everything. In the end they shut the carousal down and I lost my job.
In term 2 we learnt about adaptations and how and why animals and plants have them. Adaptations are changes in the body to fit a location. At the end of the term we got paired up with someone who is in your class. I got paired up with Evan. In the project we had to choose and animal or plant. We choose the Prickly Pear Cactus. In the project we had to research, the adaptations, the habitat the plant lives in, the behavioural changes and
This is my 3,2,1 reflection on what I learnt in my science project about adaptations.
3 interesting facts about the prickly pear cactus
– the roots grow horizontally not vertically like a tree does so that it can get water quicker
– they live for over 30 years and can be grow up to 2 metres high
– the prickly pear cactus is the most common cactus in Texas
-If the prickly pear cactus didn’t have its spikes then it wouldn’t be able to survive because its predators will eat it
– if the prickly pear cactus needed a lot of water then it wouldn’t be able to survive in the Sonoran Desert
-how did the prickly pear cactus come to Australia and Africa when it is originally from Texas
What was the most important thing I learnt?
-I learnt. You have to learn to trust your partner and do all of the work. I feel that in my project I lost my trust of my partner because he was constantly not doing his work but in the end I did gain his trust again and that taught me that nothing is perfect and life is a roller coaster.
How I learnt that
-I learnt this by sharing out the job. when I couldn’t do something I gave my partner the job and when he couldn’t do something he gave me the job. This gave us trust. Once you lose your trust I someone it can wreck your relationship with that person and that is why you need to trust in your partner when you are doing a class project.
What will I do with what I learnt
-In the future I will use this skill to help me in other school projects. I will make sure that I will use this skill when I am working with some one that I don’t really bond well with or someone I don’t really know.
Overall no matter how many ups and downs I had I found this subject on adaptations really interesting and I learnt a whole bunch of new things about plants and animals.
