My CARE progress

CARE: My progress so far

The CARE award that I am working towards is my silver.

The one area of CARE that I am doing best in is Excellence because I try my hardest in my learning.

The one area of CARE that I need to work harder in is Community because if there is rubbish on the ground I wouldn't pick it up but now I'm going to try and pick it up.

To show my leadership qualities I am a role model to others in the CARE values by doing/showing these leadership traits, Integrity

On the CARE SOLO matrix below I am at this SOLO level Relational because I try my best to demonstrate the care values.





Extended Abstract
I am not aware of the CARE values yet.
I know what the CARE values mean.

I need help to use them.
I can use the CARE values.

I need reminding to use them.
I can use the CARE values independently.
I can use the CARE values independently.

I can role model to others how to use the CARE values.

I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury

In this project I was working with Teiken and we decided to create a water filter.

In this project we decided that our success criteria were: It needs to be long lasting, the right materials, it needs to be portable, it needs to be clean and drinkable water and it needs to be easy to use.

Overall our project met this criteria because we were able to use the materials that we needed and we also made it small enough so that you can carry it around.

Apply the techniques of improvisation to a range of different scenarios

WALT Apply the techniques of improvisation to a range of different scenarios.

The improvisation TECHNIQUE that I have used successfully is mime.

The Improvisation TECHNIQUE that I would like to have more practice at always say yes.

The thing that I enjoyed most about this unit of learning was the skits
because they were fun.

The thing that I found most challenging during this unit of learning was coming up with things on the spot because it's really hard to come up with something to say on the spot.

My favourite improvisation game was yes and because you also had to come up with it on the spot.

My next step/ something I need to work on further in improvisation is trying not to laugh because it just puts everyone off.

Water Cycle

This is my Water Cycle information report.

The Water Cycle
The water cycle is a process that water goes through between land, sea and atmosphere. The water is always recycled throughout the water cycle, the water changes states throughout the water cycle ( it changes between liquid, gas and solids ). The steps in the water cycle are evaporation, condensation, precipitation and runoff.

Evaporation is when the water from the ocean, lakes, rivers and streams get heated up by the sun and turns into water vapour ( gas ). Evaporation is a process that turns water into gas but it is invisible, the humidity is the amount of water vapour in the air. On hotter days the evaporation happens faster than on colder days. When the water has turned into gas it rises up into the atmosphere and then forms a cloud which is called condensation.

Condensation and Precipitation, condensation is the process by which water vapour in the atmosphere turns into water. Condensation is the exact opposite to evaporation. After condensation, the size of water droplets in the sky get bigger as more and more water particles bump into each other. After the precipitation has fallen it turns into groundwater and runoff.

Runoff and Groundwater, Runoff is the precipitation that did not get absorbed into the soil or didn’t evaporate, and therefore made its way from the ground surface into places that water is collected. Only 35% of the evaporation ends up in the ocean or sea, the other 65% is absorbed into the soil. Runoff causes elosion and also carries chemicals and substances on the ground surface along to the river’s where the water ends up.

The water cycle is a non stop process the steps in the cycle are Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation and Runoff and Groundwater. The water is always recycled and there are three different states they are Liquid, gas and solid.

Adverbial clauses

Walt - I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clauses.

For reading I have been learning about adverbial clauses. I have found this learning boring because it was too easy.

In this activity link to adverbial clause activity, I had to change some of the wording with the adverbial cluases that were underneith the sentences.
