Statistical Investigation

LI: To read the text, gather sort, graph and analyse the data

Our maths group created a diagram which shows the top six rivers in Auckland from smallest to largest. We used our collaborative skills to find out the data of each river. We put these rivers in this order from shortest to longest. We used our knowledge to come to the conclusion on what river is the longest out of the 6 rivers in Auckland, which is the Wairoa River being the longest at 65km.

I found this activity helpful because it helps me learn how to sort and order out the informations.

Moment in Time

LI: To recount and explore the learning and experiences from our Year 7/8 camp

Our group wrote a poem based on our senses like auditory, tactile, visual, and kinesthetic. We used our prior knowledge of the senses and unpacked different words and ideas that describes the Hunua Falls. These moment in time poems represent our experience at Kokako Lodge. One of our ideas were “The waterfall was falling down”. We then used word hippo to find more powerful words to strengthen our poems.

I found this activity helpful because it helps me find more powerful words to make my text more interesting.
