The Our World Show



On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. The last thing that we attended was the our world show. In this show, they showed us the all of the different gadgets that wouldn't work with out the world working with it. For example an x-ray wave is below the visible wave in the electromagnetic spectrum, however just become we can't see something doesn't mean that it is not there so people use x-ray machines which pretty much are just more powerful eyes so they can see the waves passing through. There are also machines that do the same thing for ultra violet waves and infrared waves

Expanding Metal Experiment

video


On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. One of the experiments was a expanding metal experiment. Where you had to blow dry some metal rods with a hair dryer and you would see that the scale showed that the metal was getting heavier and heavier because it was expanding. This showed that when metal is put under high heat then metal expands.

Light Blocker Investigation



On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. One of the experiments was a light blocker experiment. Where you had to look into a box when the lid was closed which blocked out all of the light and then you did it again with the lid open so that light would come in. This showed that you can't see anything without, it also showed that we need light otherwise life would become really hard.

Chemical and Physical Changes



On Thursday the 25th of May a select group of students attended the science roadshow. The first thing that we attended was the physical and chemical show. In this they showed us the difference between physical and chemical changes. A chemical change is when you change something that makes something new usually with no chance to be reversed and a physical change is when you change something and it still stays the same but can also be reversed.

Migration of Māori

Ms. Maude says...

If we dive deep into Maori history you will find the story of Kupe and how he was responsible for finding Aotearoa. Kupe hailed from Hawaii. He liked octopuses, but here was on particular octopus that he chased all around the pacific. When he landed though, he landed one the north island of Aotearoa. As it had got no current inhabitants is was available to anyone that wanted it as their homeland. So he sailed back to Hawaii and informed 7 chiefs that he has found land. Then they set off heading for Aotearoa. They traveled to Aotearoa but when they had reached it the Chief of the Te Arawa waka informed the Chief of the Tainui waka that they had lost their navigator so they would have to use their's Ngatoroirangi.

I would recommend this book to me because my mum, my dad and my brother appeal to would not enjoy it. As the are far older than the target audience which I think is 8-12 year olds. Also, this is a really good book to learn alliteration fromas there is an example on almost every page.
