BANG! When all of a sudden I was bleeding. I have been shot. I fell to the floor and bled. I was wondering what the afterlife is going to be like? Would it be another earth but for dead people? Will it have planes? Will it have cars? Will I see thirst person to be alive? After I thought about all of the questions it was time. Time to go up the big elevator. When I was in outer space I could breathe and I did not suffocate. Once I was there it was everything I had imagined.
1 A kid got killed by police because the police mistaken the fake gun for a real one
2 Kids used guns to imitate their favorite on screen heroes
3 Many kids still play with toy guns
1 Why don’t they stop making guns
2 Why don’t they fine people that bring guns out side
1 I wonder if they will ever band toy guns
1 41 million tones of trash
2 the coffee shops are giving a discount if costumes bring in there own reusable cup
3 we are 4 in the world for trash that is how much we have
1 why has our rubbish increased over the years?
2 how many coffee shops have the asked so far?
1 i wonder if we can get all the coffee shops in Australia to give the discount?
“Hey lads how about be escape?”
“Yeah lets do it”
“But how are we going to get out?”
“I have herd that these rope things are really easy to brake”
The next day when the park was closed they broke free and ran as far away as they could. They ran all the way to a waterfall where they can stay so they do not get taken away by some people to be smelted down in to metal, so they can make something else but the bad thing was that one of them got taken away. So they all promised to never leave the waterfall again.
heidi and i did very well on our shield shrimp project. i think both of us learnt a lot about shield shrimps and how do do an info text. some thing i learnt was 1 they have shields to protect them. 2 they have 3 eyes and they live in drying up lakes, dams and little pools.
In this experiment I found that the green sponge went the furthest because it was not heavy so that means it was light so it can move with the wind or in this case the wind from the fan. We did this experiment to show that shield shrimp eggs can dry up and move with the wind. Now that is amassing.
Jack- I predict that the shield is so they can protect themselves from predators.
Heidi-I predict that a shield shrimp’s colour may help them survive because it would camouflage in the sand. I also predict that these shrimps have shields to protect themselves from their predators.
WHAT ARE SHIELD SHRIMPS?
Shield Shrimps are the most strange looking and distinctive of all desert crustaceans, and are found over much of inland Australia. They are extremely uncommon, with only two species of this animal so far. Scientists are still trying to discover more species, but have so far been unsuccessful.
Shield shrimps have been around for 350 million years, humans have only discovered them this century.
Shield shrimps shield is very helpful to help them defend themselves from predators, helping them from predators with getting hit or attacked and can sometimes help them disguise as a rock or an other small round hard object. They can survive in dry conditions but their predators cannot, so basically while the shield shrimps are hiding for years, their predators can’t survive for more than a few months without water. This is a smart way to lose off predators. They have a tail and feet that help them swim much faster in shallow lakes, ponds and damns they propel through the water and use their tail almost like flippers.
Within weeks, shield shrimp babies can transform into adults. Shield shrimps move in small groups usually containing their family or shrimps around the same age. These groups are very small, including around 3 – 6 shrimps per group.
They are shaped like a tadpole, their shield is wide fat and oval shaped and a scaled tail.
The “shield” is a body part that protects the head and front part of their body from rocks, dust, and sometimes are used to hide away from predators.
Their colour is normally olive green to brown. Adult shrimps reach about 90 mm in body length while their children reach up to about 5 cm in body length.
Shrimps are defenceless so they usually hide in waterholes that are dying out. These environments are dry and harsh, and shield shrimps are one of the few that can survive for years in these hard environments. Unlike other shrimps, these creatures can sense following rain, advantaging all of the other animals that might be around their group. They are a freshwater species and are found in rock pools and Isolated places.
Arid- dry, with a lack of water. Most often used describing hot or desert environments.
Gill- a lung to help them breath. Most marine animals have these body parts.
Crustacean- a group of animals like mammals or reptiles. They most often have a shell. An example of a crustacean is a crab or lobster.
Isolated- an empty environment, far away from other populated places, or animals.
Predators: animals that normally hunt smaller or less powerful animals to eat them as prey.
Prey: predators eat prey to survive and keep their kids/ babies alive.
Jack- I predict that the dry sponge will travel further.
Heidi- I predict that the wet sponge will travel slower and less far.
The wet sponge moved 0.1 cm the first time, while the dry sponge moved 92.4 cm. This experiment got similar results each time we did it. The wet sponge stuck to the table and the dry sponge moved to the end of the table.
This experiment was representing the shield shrimp’s eggs and how the are light and dry so the wind blows the eggs to a spot where it is raining, in order for them to hatch.
1 need to be older than 16 to donate
2 you can donate plasma platelets or the whole thing
3 if you choose plasma it takes the plasma out of your blood and put the rest back in
1 what other diseases does the blood treat?
2 what do they me by the more blood the better?
1 ow many people donate blood each year?
At the Melbourne aquarium we learnt about animal adaptations
At this excursion we learn about sea life adaptations. One of the adaptations we learnt about was that colorful fish are colorful because they can kill you. E.G you know the movie finding dory? dory has a sword type thing in here tail to kill prey. (one wearied thing is that star fishes vomit out their stomach and guts to eat them and then they swallow there guts and the food up.)
I think that the penguins were the weirdest because the baby ones were brown so they ca be disguised as a rock. in the aquarium they separated from there parents so they don’t get chewed up food by there mum and dad. (so that means that they need to eat and swallow the food by them selves.
You know how we sleep walk. well sharks sleep swim. if they get woken up they wake up and then go back to sleep. (now that is weird)
this is what i learnt about sea life.
