New Zealand's waterways - Matthew Davey

How Polluted Are New Zealand’s Rivers?

Read through the article and images that it provides, complete the table below.

What are some things Kiwi’s are doing to reinvigorate the rivers?
Cleaning and caniling

What does reinvigorate mean?
give new energy or strength to.
How does sediment pollute our waterways?

1.causing long term damage to marine life

2. Clouding the water

3.blocks light killing plants
Describe how Cows pollute our waterways using the infographic you’ve seen.

Cow pollute our waters by the what the exscret aka urine washing into the water making it hasadis.

Describe the pattern of deforestation in NZ by completing the sentence starters:

I can see a huge decrease of green

Over this time period trees have disapered

List the three main contaminants (things that pollute the water)
What is the problem that algal bloom causes? Algal bloom take oxygen out of the water and growing at a explamental rate and killing plants.

Find a picture (new zealand) paste it here.
What could we do to help the rivers? Fish the algal bloom out of the water and study how it works and find a way to stop or use to stop other algal bloom

My OPINION paragraph

Are the 100% PURE NZ tourist videos 100% Factual?

I believe the 100% PURE NZ tourist videos are have basic mistakes in the videos that could become a problem and nothing more Because they show bad thing like drinking the water and explore anywhere and there a no towns and it can be quite dangerous like E coli and algal bloom that can kill people. This shows that the 100% nz logo and video needs to be changed to help and protect people that come to New Zealand and New zealanders that live here can know that something are not good to for you or are just dangerous. So that is my final point that it just needs to slightly change to be more safe for Me, you and everybody else to stay safe and away from danger to not tern New zealand into a hell hole.

 Designing my Mars Lander

Me and Emily
This a new and cool design made by us to be more stable and be able to go over most terrain the 5 wheel’s create more stability than 4 or less. Also it is a work in progress can’t wait to see it get finished!we changed the design so it all terrain able to be overcome by the design, good shock absorption and strong joint placement. Then we made a prototype that had two rotating back wheels, Armour like cockpit, 2 stationery wheels, Good strong fitting body.In the ed we made decent prototype, it had all the feature we need such as wheels and a main base. it protected the Sphero and the Sphero made it work, Yet the prototype was a bit bulky and the wheels were stiff making the Sphero not work to it's full potential. Also we did know how to use the sphero that well.
Not first design (we did not make this)

Code of combat/Sphero coding
So after the mars lander we went on to coding like code of combat were the teacher put us on a quest to use our brain and newly learned coding skill's. Like loop's, moment, attack, and speech. We then had fun with fighting against each other trying to get to the top of our game in coding.


But after that we started coding the sphero to move left, right, forward and backward and LED control.

This was the last thing we used that include everything we had and more as well as thing's about color and make a map. But it required you to work as a team to complete the work and pass aswell as be super fun and competitive.

NZL post

Last term we found out a lot about our selves and new Zealand religion and how so thing that we have as our goals can relate to other religion.

Image result for mickey to tiki
Like the piece of art you can think of what it means in your own way but mine way i think of it (that do not have to believe) is this art is like the treaty of Waitangi in the fact that the as you can see it two different art types connecting in the middle.
Plus some of the work we did last term was about us as new Zealand identity.
like how we had to do about one of favourite hero (real or fake.)
Here it is...
There are video's and thing about him in there near the top of page in the link.
Thank you for reading my post.

9MG English: Term One

This term we have been learning all about what is the hero cycle.
The hero cycle can be called the hero's journey and it mean the same thing it is the the journey to becoming a hero
As well as hero cycle. we have been doing a thing like the big questions and success ticket.
The big question is were every start if class we do something like free writing or some type of writing with a time limit of 5 minutes on the board that looks like this
and when it is up you stop what you are doing and if you want show every one what you have done.
Here is an example.

The success ticket is were you evaluate what you have done and how well you have done. Then every one gets a ticket and she picks a random number and they get to pick a item out of her prize draw.
Here is an example.

This term was great and one of my most proud of peaces of work is this... LINK it was good to be able to show who my hero is and how i can show and tell why she is my hero and others.It was interesting read all about her history

On Monday me and all the other year nine's went to Kumara were we got to know the history of Kumara. We went to the big rock called Londonderry and how when it fell down the hill it did not kill anyone and roomers say it stopped all the clock's stopped. We found out all about the people of the town's. It was good to find out about the majority of kumara history.

Thanks for reading my post.
