Weird and Wonderful

So first you have to go 3ml x 365 because, there 365 days and a year and you and it says that you have to give the cactus 3ml of water a day so then the answer has to be 1095 But then if it was a leap year you just added another 3ml on to the total which would make it 1098.

Food For Thought

Food for thought

There are four nutrition groups, they are:

Dairy helps make your bones stronger.

Bread cereals have carbohydrates and fiber.

Fruit and vegetable help by giving us all the vitamins and fiber.
 
Meat, eggs, nuts, seeds and seafood has iron and protein.

Today I learned that vitamin k is the vitamin that is a natural bandage when we cut or scratch yourself.

Paying It Forward

If I traveled back in time what would I bring?

Singing a Different Tune

Take It Easy

Stroger days, Bitter nights,
Cold hands, Warm Heart,
Walking around,
But you're staring at the ground,
Take hold, Fall apart.

Little by little,
Someone blows a whistle,
It don't matter in the end,
 So just slow it all, slow it all down.

You gotta take it easy, easy
Live your life,
Take on any kind of weather you and me together,
We'll be fine,
You gotta take it easy, easy
Take your time
It's just you and me together any kind of weather,
We'll be fine,

Open road, broken down,
Bright lights, dark town
Stand up but then you fall again,
you will find a way in the end

You gotta take it easy, easy
Live your life,
Take on any kind of weather you and me together,
We'll be fine,
You gotta take it easy, easy
Take your time
It's just you and me together any kind of weather,
We'll be fine,

Little by little,
Someone blows a whistle,
It don't matter in the end,
 So just slow it all, slow it all down.

You gotta take it easy, easy
Live your life,
Take on any kind of weather you and me together,
We'll be fine,
You gotta take it easy, easy
Take your time
It's just you and me together any kind of weather,
We'll be fine.

Blade Runner

What new Zealand look like in 80- 90 years

What will they eat?
I think they will eat some fancy new fruit. Like a barrot (banana and carrot) or an aprium ( apricot and plum). There will be way more technology in houses. Like a robot that cleans and tidies the house. People would get around in flying cars. People will work to improve the technology and fix the flying cars. People would live in houses shaped like balls, pyramids, cubes and more shapes. They could be made of recycled plastic, carpet, and glass. Every person must have to plant a tree. They might create robot pets (eg robot lions, tigers, dogs, turtles, dinosaurs and birds).

Flying Car

I would choose this car because you would be able to fly and drive. It is like going on a plane but you're in the car. You would not have to pay a lot of money to go on a plane to a different country. you could travel all over the world. It would be AWESOME!

Your Future Self

Your Future Self

Moana

I have watched the movie Moana. My favourite part is when Moana and Maui fight the lava monster. The main characters are Moana and Maui. The movie is about putting back the heart of Te Fiti. Here is what hapens in the movie:

One day Moana finds out that she is Moana of Mohtanui and she is to go and restore the heart of Te Fiti. She sets off to find a dim god called Maui. Then they need to go to this evil crabe that loves shiny stuff. They just mange to get Mauis hook. After that the set out to go and fight the lava moster. Moana gets past the moster and then Moana realises the Te Fiti is the lava moster so she makes a path though the sea. Moana put the heart stone in a hole that fits perfectly. The lava moster turns back into Te Fiti. The end.

Meat And 3 Veg

Would I like to have the meat and 3 vegetable?

No! I would not like to live in the 1950s and have to eat this. It would be boring and say if you did not like the meat what would you eat? Nothing, just vegetables. Yes, it is healthy. But having the same type of meal for tea every day for the 365 days of the year. I would defiantly not like it.

Women At Work

One day you are walking along the deck of the ship when you hear a loud bang. You start to run as you see smoke coming from the far end of the ship. You run towards the room where your patients are waiting to receive treatment from the doctor. Just as you arrive at the door to their room you hear another loud bang and I look out the window and I see two holes in the boat. Oh no! I thought to myself, what am I going to do? I sound the alarm and I started shouting "The boat is sinking!". All of a sudden the boat is in a lean so we start to evacuate people on to the lifeboats. That was defiantly not an easy job for some of the patients. We had to squeeze everyone in tightly. The boat was now sinking really fast. I did not have much time left. I was about to hop in a lifeboat when I remember that I had forgotten one person. I run as fast as a cheetah to the back of the boat. I grab the solider and run. I start to see water bubbling up from the deck. I jump into the lifeboat and watch the big boat sink. I thought to myself man I'm lucky.

The Right To Vote

No! It is not fair that women didi not get to vote in Saudia Arabia until 2015. New Zealand women had already been voting for over 130 years. They are saying that women are not important and not smart enough to make a decision. It is great that they have finally changed it but it should have happened ages ago!

Westminster Abbey
