Last week I went to Cat Tien National Park. We went there for our super unit called “Green Dragons”. It was really fun and creepy. When we arrived the first thing we did was river crossing. River crossing was really cool, we got to go on a ferry. The ferry was very big but looked very old and rusty. It took about 5 mins to get to Cat Tien. For safety reasons we had to wear life jackets.
Happy Moon Bear
In Cat Tien one of the must go is the moon bear centre. In the moon bear you can make food for the moon bears and the sun bears. There’s 2 types of food the one that I made was used by bamboo, bananas, banana leafs and dog food. The other one was peanut butter. They didn’t use machines because this place is very Eco friendly. After you made the food you got to hide it for the moon bears. You hide it because the moon bears have to learn how to hunt for food in nature so they can be released. When you are done you get to see the amazing bears! It was really funny to see them try to find the food.
Another attraction that was cool was the night safari. You get to see all the amazing wild life of Cat Tien. I really liked the night safari because you can see all sorts of animals that you don’t see in your daily life. One of the animals that I saw was a Pygmy Loris. The pygmy loris has very big eyes and it is very cute. I also saw 3 types of deer, 1 snake, 1 rabbit and 2 weasels. We saw the animals because there was an huge flash light shining light around us.
The last thing we did was the Bon Fire which was the most weird. We got to play games and ate mouth watering roasted marshmallows.
Over all I think Cat Tien was very fun and risky.
Today I got to publish my information reports.We got marked on a sheet called “CARP” which stands for Contrast, Alignment, Repetition and Proximity.Heres a picture.
The strength of my report was good.I got a M which means meeting and is the second best.The progress was going smoothly for me because I have a idea of my topic which is bullet trains so I could be on track until the deadline of the information report.
The thing I should do better is repitition because I got a 2 on that and all the other ones I’m okay at.
My goal for the next two weeks is to read more chapter books because before I read a lot of picture books and not a lot of chapter books.
My action plan for that is by when its reading time I usually have to choose an chapter book and only sometimes read picture books.
Jan 12:So far I just read one chapter book and one atlas so it is working pretty well.
Jan 13:I’m still reading my atlas and i’m finished with my chapter book.
Jan 16:I finished my atlas and is in the middle of a chapter book.
Jan 18:I just fished my chapter called sqeals on the wheels book and will be reading another book.
Jan 20:I’m reading a chapter book and a non-fiction book at the same time.The chapter book is at home and the Non-fiction book is in school.
Jan 23:I’m still reading my non_fiction book and finished it.
Jan 26:I’m starting to read chapter book.
In school me and my partner did a experiment. Our experiment was what happens when you add sodium polyacryate into water and baking soda.
The experiment was a success. Our prediction was correct because our prediction was it would make a fizzing reaction.It was really cool because the water turned into a snow like substance and the baking soda fizzed.
I think next time we can be more organized because when we were getting ready to film we took a long time so grace the filmer got impatient and moved to the other group and I think our group worked well and that is my report!Thank You!
On Wednesday me and my team had an B-ball tournament called “SISAC” at my school.It was very tiring,we had to run around and play B-ball from 12:30 till 5:30.Our team got 4th place which was fine.We could off got 3rd place if BIS didn’t get an free throw because we fouled and could off got 1st or 2nd place if CIS and AMIS didn’t cheat because off the horrible referee but over all it was quite fun.
My trip to japan was really fun.I went to Tokyo,Sapporo and Yokohama.My favorite place that I went to was Yokohama because all of my friends live there and my grandpa lived there.I liked the hot spring because in the cold air when you go in it feels good.
Hello again as you may see today I will be telling you what I did today.So I’m working on my inquiry project which is bullet trains and I choose that topic because I like going on them and researching about them is pretty fun.In math we are working on multiplying decimals and it’s a lot harder than I thought because if you have like 10 and you multiply it by 0.5 it willy become half of that number so 5.In science were are now experimenting with concentrations and we got to taste the concentrations like Tang.It tasted very good.
Yesterday I had an truly amazing race.For you who don’t know what an Amazing Race is,Its an TV show.The show is about teams of 2 racing for an prize of half of a million dollars,A trip of two on first class around the world and an popular car.But we didn’t have that so winning was normal.The amazing race was really cool because we got to run around D1 and find a pair of red and yellow balloons.So the first activity we did was to go to the Big Top and find the clue with our color on it,my groups color was pattern red.Then we had to go on vans to Saigon,Each van was 3 minutes apart.My team got 7th place.
My team started to argue when we tried finding the first station because locals told us go left so we went left the a local said right so we went back but it was actually right in front of us so we were kinda confused but then we saw some ballons and we went there and we found the station marker than did the activity.
This week was pretty normal because their was kinda no changes except for the schedule change.In class was fine to,we got to solve these problems on an giant post it note and we’re separated into groups with people that are the same level with you and I was in the P.I.G 2 group.Science was really cool to,we got to compare these evaporated solutions and describe what they look,smell and color.So that was this week.
