Himalayas

Hi readers!

This week we’ve been inquiring into different ecosystems. I chose the Himalayas with Ryan Boon. We’ve been researching and today we’re going to start writing the reports. I got most of my information from this video so check it out!

This is my report so far:

The Himalayas

All About The Himalayas

The Himalayas is one of the biggest and youngest mountain range in the world. It has over 52 mountains and is the home of the great Mount. Everest, the tallest mountain in the world! The height of Mount. Everest is 8,848 km. The Himalayas is home to 300 species of mammals including the snow leopard, the red panda, the black bear and more. The Himalayas are also home to 10,000 species of plant, 977 species of birds and 269 species of plants. The Himalayas are also the source of the major rivers which are known as the Ganga, the Brahmaputra and the Indus which altogether gives water to a billion people. There are also another 35 rivers whose source is the Himalayas.

Human Impact (Bad)

Humans always causes sound which cause avalanches. During avalanches, more than 3500 animals die. Also, many humans go to the Himalayas to kill animals and hunt. Not just that, but humans cut down trees and that makes deforestation. Another thing that humans do is Global Warming, Climate Change, and Landslides kill a lot of animals. And most of the time, a lot of animals experience habitat loss.

 

Human Impact (Good)

Don’t always think that all humans are bad just for destroying and ecosystem. Some humans like the government are good and want to save the ecosystem. They send out farmers to work there, stop poaching, plant food for the animals, banning hunters, and creating National Parks to make animals have more enjoyment.

 

Myths

Have you heard about the Yeti? Many eyewitnesses said they saw the Yeti. They are known for living in the Himalayas. They are in the dreaded ape man family, which also includes bigfoot. Also, they might be primates.  

 

Creation of the Himalayas

The Himalayas was created 550 B.C. It was created by the Indian Plate and Asian Plate collided. They formed a big mountain range  and scientists called it “The Himalayas”. Many animals moved into  ecosystem and

started the generations and generations of animals in the Himalayas.

What Can We Do?

What can you do? Well, there’s many big things you can do, and small things you can do.

Small things:

  • Recycle
  • Plant a tree
  • Earth Hour
  • Donate to WWF Link

 

Big Things:

  • Big fair

The End!

I will even change the movie list! Percy Jackson is in front of Captain America Civil War!

Microbeads

Hi readers!

Did you know there is something in your health care called “Microbeads”? Microbeads is plastic that is really small and just looks intimidating so people buy the product. If it’s plastic, it would be killing the Earth for no reason! Plus, if you use anything with microbeads in the shower, the microbeads are so small, it can go through the tiny drain. Even more so, when microbeads go through the drain, the collect poison and fish will eat it when it gets released to the sea! That’s how most water species get extinct!

Not just that, but you’re basically putting dirty plastics into your skin. It’s really unhygienic and scary!

I learned this all yesterday when a charity called Plastic Free Seas came to our school to teach us about microbeads. We did a science project and brought some health care products with microbeads to school. Then, we got our some little and poured out the soap and left the microbeads. The microbeads were so small! We compared the largeness with a plankton. The plankton was bigger! I loved the lesson. Also, it was the first time we got to go inside an upper school science lab. There was so much cool equipment!

Thanks for reading! Pass the message on to stop using microbeads and you should stop too! Bye!

Camp for Scouts

Hi readers!

Last week, I went to camp in the Hong Kong Aventure Corps because it was the 25th anniversary. It was really fun! On the first day, we kind of just hanged out and got used to the camp. In that time, we split into two groups. Group Ontario and Group British Columbia. Then, Ontario and British Columbia is split into six groups. I’m in CHOCOLATE! WOOHOO! The people in it is Samantha, Mavis, Dylan, Ryan, and Justin! We called Ryan “dad” and Justin “mum”. On the second day, we had the anniversary parade. Where all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Scouters. We all stood around the flags and did our march. Here is a picture of a Cub; Calista, raising the Cub Flag. We also had cake and snacks. The luckiest thing that happened was that there was no foot drill!

On the third day, we had many activities like monkey bars, military training, and crawling under poles. We also did the awesome group picture that looks really good. We also did some orientation with my group. We also did a night hike and knotting.

The nights were especially scary. It was completely dark and people were talking in the dorm. I couldn’t sleep. Then, I had a brilliant idea! I get up and read until I could sleep. But, it was too dark.

So, that was my experience at the camp. It was pretty fun but is very tiring.

Thanks for reading. Bye!

Reflection for How Wolves Changed Rivers

Hey readers!

Yesterday, our class watched a video called “How Wolves Changed Rivers”. First, I’ll show you it:

Hoped you enjoyed the video! After that, Ms. Laura told us we had to make a sketchnote about the causation, connection, interdependence, and balance. I never knew that wolves made other species not be endangered in the Yellowstone valley! My sketchnote first started in 1995 where some American President found wolves in Yellowstone. Then the wolves chased the deers away from valleys and canyons. Now, the deers can’t eat the berries from the valleys and canyons. That means the trees will grow and other animals will eat it. Then, the animals will breed more animals and then Yellowstone will be full of animals again!

I also didn’t know that wolves could change the motion of rivers. I don’t want to explain it because it’s really confusing. But, it’s so cool!!!

Hoped you enjoyed! Bye!
