Tokelau imagination - Kauri


                                  Tokelau Imagination

While I was on the boat travelling back to my home country to see my family. I was thinking to myself what I can do to improve my country. I had a few ideas, e.g building better structural houses, because we get a lot of deadly storms that destroy our houses. I am very worried because climate change is going to affect my country. Because the sea water levels are rising pretty fastImage result for tokelau

Social Studies Concepts - Kauri


Today I learnt about two new Social Studies concepts, Migration and Sustainability.

The first concept Migration means moving from country to country, by this I mean there is a few different migrations one is called external migration which is moving out of the country and the other is internal migration which is moving area's/houses in the same country.


The second social studies concept is Sustainability, which means keep or maintain for future generations. An example of this concept is global warming. Our generation is using too many fossil fuels. "eg" oil and coal. For sustainability we can save oil and coal for our future generation so they can have some experience with it and also help them out.

Anzac day

What does Anzac Day mean to you?

To me Anzac means people from Australia and New Zealand show respect to the people who have fought in the war just so we could live in freedom today. This is a very important day because a lot of men didn't have a choice but to go to war. When they were about 16/18 they had no choice they had to go to war because it was the only option they gave to them. To show respect, people wear their parents or granddad medals so they can keep the tradition going. They also  wear poppies because it was where most soldiers had fallen dead on field with poppies.

Why is it important to commemorate Anzac Day?


 It is important to commemorate the day when Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars. We remember contribution and suffering of all those who have served.

Technology Reflection - Kauri and George

Chocolate Muffins

Dry Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup of S.R.F
1/3 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
Half a cup of sugar
_______________

Wet Ingredients:
1egg
1/2 milk
1/4 of oil

First we heated the oven  to 180 degrees. Then we put these ingredients into separate bowls then when we did that, we mixed the ingredients until Ms Tuipulotu gave us the yes to put both ingredients in one bowl. We mixed it together good then when it was finished we used a table spoon to scoop the mixture up and slowly dropped it into the bowl. After we did that there was still a lot of mixture left in the bowl so we topped up and put it into the oven to cook. It came out very good but was a little bit to dry. I think we added to much flour but it still was very tasty. Thanks to Ms Tuipulotu for teaching us how to make muffins.

They both came across things that caught their eye. It shook them because they wanted to find out which them came real.  The interesting thing that stood out to me was the culture dance. It surprised me because the culture dance that they did is similar to the polynesian dance which we call it haka. I think their trip was successful because they found out what they wanted to find out. They have some identity of where they came from. And the reason why I thought it was successful also is because the patterns that were on the lapita pottery is similar and also the language is basically the same but sounds and is spelt differently. The types of evidence I have that supports the theory the Polynesian originated from Asia is that. When Niwa took Nathan and Oscar to the museum and Oscar found a photo of the Asian people and the tattoos on them were similar to a Maori tattoo called Moko which is located on the face area.
