Passion Project

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today I will be blogging about my passion project. My passion project was to draw a poster with some facts. The animals were Caterpillar snake, Red eyed frog, Toucan, Golden tamarin and Sloth. This is a photo of my poster. Did you know the Snake Caterpillar extends is body into a snake. The Red eyed tree frog is mostly nocturnal. The golden tamarin monkeys live in groups of two to eight. Sloths are slow because they don't eat energetic food. Toucans live to live in tropical forests.




Describe your passion project. What was your learning in it? What were you trying to produce:
I was making a poster with drawings of amazon animals and some facts about the animals. Like Golden Tamarin Monkeys live in groups of two to eight. And I drew a pitcher of a Golden Tamarin Monkey with a baby on it’s back.  

How far did you get with your passion project? What would have helped you to get further?:
I set a goal for learning about five different animals in the amazon. After I set the goal I worked really hard on the task and I did do my goal and added some of the food they like to eat. But to make it better I could have added some more information about the animals.

What was the most challenging part of your passion project:
My most challenging thing about my passion project was finding true facts about the animals. I also think it was hard to draw the animals to look just like the animal.

What was surprising about your passion project:
I was surprised about all the different animals I found. Like the snake caterpillar it makes itself look like a snake. But It really looks like someone cut the snake in half.
Did you follow your plan well? Why or why not:
I followed my plan well because I said I was going find out about five animals and I did. But I think I could make my my poster more interesting by adding more animals.

Which learning muscles did you use the most while you were working on your passion project? How did you use each one:
I used my managing distractions because I stayed focused on my task with all the activity around me. I also tried to think about who I sat by.

Which learning muscles did you find difficult to stretch during passion project time:
I found it hard to stretch my listening muscle with all the other activities. But I moved closer so I could hear what the teacher said.

If you were allowed to pick a new passion project, what would you choose and why:
I would choose to learn about kittens because I really love animals and especially cats and kittens.

What was your favorite part of passion projects:
My favorite part of passion projects is learning about all the unique animals from the Amazon. And drawing them with pride.

Matariki

Hello and welcome to my blog today I am going to blog about Matariki. When we got back to school after the long weekend. We had the funnest day called Matariki. Matariki was really fun. There were lots of workshops. I choose Sewing and Zumba. For sewing we had to iron material onto another peace of material. After that we sew around it with red thread. We cut out seven stars. For Zumba we danced and jumped around and had lots of fun. We did lots of stretching with our dances. Overall I had an awesome day.
