NZ Shake Out Day

Today was New Zealand national Shake out day. At 9:26am there was an earthquake drill. I was at my desk, so I dropped,cover and held to stay safe. One thing we did well at T.P.S was we responded to alarm and quickly dropped under our desk. One thing I want to work on next time is do think its funny because its, and if you don't listen you will get hurt. Our meeting place is our school hall. Remember, in
the event of an earthquake drop cover hold!

Observation Report

This term we have been learning about plants , so my class split up in 5 groups and did some experiments on plants and my group was doing one on plants.

When we finally got our equipment which were two cups,one tall white flower,water and food colouring we got down to business. First we filled the two cups with water, next we added two teaspoons of red and yellow food colouring into the mixture. Then cut the long white flower in half, not the whole flower but until it is half way. After that we put the two pieces of stem into the two types of colourings. Finally wait for about 2 to 5 days and see what has changed.  

When we observed the flower on Monday, we found out that the petals have changed from white to half red and yellow and the stem was getting weaker, I mean that the stem couldn’t handle the petals in the air and it might have been dying. So we kept on staring at the plant till we said that in two weeks the plant would die.

This science project was my first so you must know what it feels like, it was pretty cool. The two key things we found out in the science project was that the pedals changed from white to red and yellow, and the stem had weaken  every single day. It was a pretty cool experience and I want to do somthing like that again.
