My Mum's Birthday

On the 8th of July 2019, was my mum's 
birthday and she was hosting a small birthday party.

We had to get food and drinks for the party. So my dad and I went out to the shops.
When we got home my mum started preparing the food, while my dad and I mowed the lawn.

When the food was cooked. My dad and I finished with the lawn. We all got ready and waited for our guests to arrive.

All the guests arrived around 6:30pm. We all together sat down and had a feed. After that my brothers and I got my mums birthday cake ready. Then we sang happy birthday and gave her three cheers.

It was so nice to see all my family at the party. I had a lot of fun and a great time.

Thinking About My Community

I live in a small community called Glen Innes. Glenn Innes A very lovely place we have a lot of things to do and programs that are in G.I called Te oro. Te Oro is a art and music facility that provides free lessons for the Youth and Adults too.

Next to Te oro we have a local Library for kids to go there to study, also the library has a program that runs in the holidays. The other awesome thing about my community is that we have a internet cafe across the road from the library. 

The internet cafe is a place for people that don't have internet. G.I also has its own police station next to the Te Oro and they are a major help to our community.

Although my community has many good trates we also have some bad ones too.

Finger Joint- Wood work

What is a Finger joint-

In wood we have been making finger joints, A finger joint is a  cross-section of the joint resembles the interlocking of fingers between two hands. 

Steeps in making a finger joint:

  1. Step 1: Measuring Finger Joints and Cutouts for Base. The first step is marking out the cuts
  2.  Step 2: Cutting the Finger Joints. Using a scroll saw, carefully  cut out the marked out areas on each piece
  3.  Step 3: Gluing Together the Box
  4.  Step 4: Creating the Box's Lid
  5.  2 Discussions.

Japan-Migration Research

The country that I have been researching about is Japan. I have learnt a lot of Japan and their culture.
Japan is a very nice countries and have nice traditions. I have also learnt about the push and pull reasons about Japanese coming to New Zealand.

The push reason for Japanese to come to New Zealand is because, Environment problems,War, and
Economic. The pull reason for Japanese to come to New Zealand is because Education, Quality life and Family.

Continental Drift

1.Millions of years ago all the continents were joined together.

2. The supercontinent was called pangea

3. The continents broke up and moved upart

4. The pangea split up into 2 - the northern and southern continents

5. These were called laurasia and gondwana land

6. What is the evidence

  1. Planet and animal fossils are similar on different continents.
  2. There are similar rocks in different parts of the world.
  3. The continents fit into a jigsaw.

The continental drift is about our world years ago was connected this was founded by German meteorologist Alfred Wegener. He had a theory that the world was connected and his proof was that the world was a jigsaw puzzle as you can see south america and Africa fits into each very well and this was called Pangaea he also had another 3 evidence to prove his discovery.

The second one is fossils there were reptiles called measures, measures lived on Africa and after there extinction scientist found fossils but on south america and Africa some believed that they had swam across but Alfred said that it was to long for the reptiles to swim and they were also freshwater creatures.

Evidence 3 in the northern Atlantic and the northern of europe you can see that the mountains used to be connected and when the continents drifted they were ripped apart some believed that the mountains grew at the same time but that was unlikely.

Evidence 4 Alfred read about past climate data like cold, hot, warm. Alfred first looked into glacier, glaciers are big chunks of ice that move slowly across the earth's surface and they form on the coldest part of the earth but today they are restricted to the highest mountain tops and in the south and north pole but there is something strange when glaciers move on mountains or on the surface they leave scratches called glacial striations and in South america and Africa in the tropical regions you will find glacial striations in the bedrock and this was believed that these continents weren't always tropical they were connected to the south pole and glaciers moved there.

Alfred dug deeper into his research he discovered coal, Bituminous Coal it is used for fossil fuel what scientist know is that this coal is made from compacted plant remains. So imagine that tropical plants dying and compacted after many years into coal but this coal was found in Antarctica, northern Europe, Indonesia, and more these parts of the world are not tropical climates.

Alfred wegener made a book about his discovery called The origin of continents and oceans but sadly he died before he could present it his discovery to the world and it was only after he died scientist believed him.

SML week 2 day 4 activity 3

In this selfie I think that the person is on a very tall statue over looking the city or country that he is in. The man is looking very brave, If I went up there I would be terrified.
