100 word challenge

 

I heard this weird sound coming from outside it sounded like people talking really loudly. I went outside to see what was going on and there were 3 men installing this big Carousel out in the park outside my window.

the carousel looked really fun so i asked the men how much longer until its open so people can play on it?

he said 1 hour i shouted with joy YESSSSSSS!!!!!

in the mean time i decided to go to the super market and get some grocery’s. i got home and saw that there was a sign  on the carousel that it was open so i dropped the shopping at the door and ran straight to the park.

YIPPEE i said this is so much fun!

as i was heading back home i see these 6 horses run off the carousel i was really confused how did they come off if there not even real?? so i quickly ran inside and didn’t go back out till morning had come .

budgerigars reflections

budgerigars reflection

in our project i think me and Lilly did really well i think well with presenting the information neatly and clearly and making sure that we had the same amount of information each!

i think we could have worked quicker instead of planning half the time, we could have started our project earlier.

budgerigars project info

Budgerigars
By Lilly and Ava
Budgerigars and also known as the common parrot, are green and yellow native
birds to the Australian dessert. They have been adapting and living in Australia
for over 5 million years.

predictions:
1. Budgerigar’s feathers are able to absorb water so they can go longer
periods of time without water.
2. They are brightly coloured (yellow and green) so the sun light reflects
off of them so they can stay cool and so they can camouflage in the more greener
trees.
3. They fly in big groups or flocks so they don’t get eaten by predators.
4. They are able to fly for long periods of time to look for food and water.
5. They eat lots of dry food to stay hydrated
Structural
One of the main adaptations of a budgerigar is its colours. Its bright green and
yellow help it camouflage in the wild. They also have a very flexible tongue that
allows them to eat seeds and nuts whole. A way they stay cool is their feathers
can soak up moisture from the dew in the mornings.  Budgerigars can maintain a
small size around 18 – 20cm so they can camouflage better and so it is harder for
predators to catch them.

Behavioural
To stay cool budgerigars will bathe in damp grass and will drink up to 5.5% of
their body weight daily. To make sure they drink that amount of water they will
try to locate themselves near dams, rivers and other water sources. To make sure
they are always near a source of water they migrate all year round. This means
they do not build nest as they are always leaving and following where the water
goes. They will nest in hollow logs and trees. Their flocks can range from 3 –
100 birds. They use these flocks to protect each other by confusing predators
like the Australian hobby and butcherbirds by flying in many different directions
very fast.

Key adaptations
The key adaptations for the survival of the budgerigars is the way it migrates
all year round. This is crucial to its survival because if they don’t migrate
they will die of thirst. This adaptation has lead them to adapt the way they
nest. They have adapted to nesting in hollow logs trees instead of building nest.
Building nest has become a waste of a budgerigar’s time so using hollow logs and
trees means they can spend more time looking for water

Environment
They can live in cold and coastal environment and they can even live in dessert
environments.
Some areas in the dessert can be very hot and that can lead to budgerigars to
die.
Budgerigars are never found in Tasmania, cape York and coastal areas of east and
north Australia.

Glossary
Adaptations – the process of change by which an organism or species becomes
better suited to its environment.
Camouflage – hide or disguise the presence of (a person, animal, or object)
Moisture – wetness caused by water
Predators – an animal that naturally preys on others
Water sources – is a place that stores or has water
Migrate – an animal that moves from one region or habitat to another according to
the seasons.
Flocks – a number of birds of one kind feeding, resting, or travelling together

predictions on the adaptations of the wild budgerigars

We are doing a research project on animal adaptations on the budgerigars. We have to make predictions on what their adaptations are.

1 A budgerigar feathers are able to absorb water so they can go longer periods of time without water

2 They are brightly coloured (yellow and green) so the sun light reflects off of them and stay cooler and so they can camouflage in the more greener trees

3 They fly in big groups or flocks so they don’t get eaten by predators

4 They are able to fly for long periods of time to look for food and water

5 They eat lots of moist food to keep hydrated

the day at the aquarium

today we went to the aquarium and it was loads of fun I really enjoyed looking at the animals cause I was also learning new things at the same time. when we went into the shark and stingray area it was really cool but also a little scary at the same time.

today I learnt that starfishes aren’t really called star fishes their called sea stars. I also learnt that crocodiles can stay under water with out breathing for 2 hours. crocodiles heartbeat can go up to 2 mins without a beat.

we got to touch starfishes and they felt really ruff I also touched a shark egg. my favorite animal was the penguins and the dory fish it was really pretty.

HERE IS A PENGUINHERE IS DORY

USA is the richest and Korea is the poorest. The different between USA and Korea is $16810. Spain Italy and Greece are almost the same in wealth. This graph is the right kind of graph because you use a bar graph for categorical data and are large amounts and our data it both of those things.

BTN school waste/wipe out waste

BTN school waste/wipe out waste

fact 1. talking rubbish is encouraged at there school.

fact 2. Australians throw out 50 million tonnes of waste witch is 2 tons of a person.

question 1. why do people litter?

question 2. don’t they care that animals can die with plastic or litter it could suffocate them!

i think its not OK for litter, people should think twice and stop being lazy and just go to the bin.
