D.L.O Investigating In Maths

Dragon Maths Chart Investigation Work12 Jun 2017 12:19:54.jpg
Digital Learning Object

Our maths task was to complete a task called ‘Check It Out’ from our Dragon Maths book. We then were required to put the information displayed in the chart in the task and create a chart of our own (as shown below). I created a bar chart/graph displaying the information in the tally chart in our dragon maths book. I think there would be more children around the ages of 6 - 8 because, that is the age where children are usually more keen to go on holiday.Screenshot 2017-06-12 at 12.14.42 PM.png

Investigation Trying Transects
 13 Jun 2017 12:21:44.jpg
We had to choose either to investigate using the methods known as transects or quadrats. Greanne and I chose to use transects we collected the data about what was plants were in the area we searched. We then presented it on a graph. I think there are more of the creeping buttercups, grass & clover because the weather has been very cold and rainy lately because it’s winter. Also it could be because the area we took our samples from wasn’t surrounded by trees so it decreases the chances of there being leaves. Also we investigated an area near a stream so that could affect the type of plants growing there. I wonder what types of plants would also grow wellScreenshot 2017-06-13 at 12.16.10 PM.png

Weta Poem

West Coast Bush Weta


Crawling, creeping, climbing among-st the leaves
On the bush floor
Creeps slowly up a kōwhai tree

Six armored legs
Like a soldier going to war
Hard brown shell
Protecting every move
Dark chocolate eyes

Searching for food
Munching on a puha flower
Fallen from a puha stem up high

Hiding from the robin above
Escaping the human foot
Cowering in a kōwhai tree to escape threats

Tiny weta eggs laid in the ground
Baby weta hiding among-st dead leaves
Adult weta creeping all around
