Natural Disaster Experts!(So totally experts)

Halló!(Hello! in Icelandic)

Hi there! Hurricane experts (Oliver,Finn and Mischa) talking… I mean writing straight to you!We decided to do a slideshow to 4C because their CHAMPIONS!

Our slide show was about hurricanes. We used the 4 driving questions (Define the natural disaster,Where does the natural disaster occur,What causes the natural disaster to form and what are the effects of the natural disaster) to help us research information that we needed.At first we were all in charge of finding any information we could get.After getting all the information we needed Oliver made a slideshow while me and Finn worked on the script.We were so focus on getting information and making the slide and script that we didn’t get a chance to practice. In the end though everything worked out ok, we weren’t horrible in saying our lines yet we still need practice.

Overall I think my partners and I worked pretty well, although we could work on using our time more effectively.

During our presentation we had  some Expert judges *cough cough* Zara,Owen and Hayden judged us. Our results weren’t too good.

This was what Zara thought of our presentation:

and what Owen thought:

File_004 (1)

and what Hayden thought:

File_003 (1)

I learned from our expert judges that maybe me and my team have to work on explaining where the natural disaster commonly happens,and more specifically.We also had our teachers judge us:



Our teachers said that we need to use more eye contact and give a real example this time.

Other “Experts” also presented so we listened.Then we had to answer questions that were information on they’re presenttion.

Here were all our results:

Unit Vocabulary

Caram, és bo estar de tornada (Wow it’s good to back) 


Seriously! after all the hard work in school I really need a break by writing and what’s a better way than writing to all my friends from the other side.Anyways I’ve done a lot at school but i’m going to explain some thing really important to our new unit.

P.S our unit is STP(Sharing the Planet) and our central idea is Human Behaviour Affects the Balance of the Ecosystems.

So basically there were categories to choose from to add onto our unit board.

The categories were:

Tundra Food chain,Grassland food chain,Fresh water food chain,rainforest food chain and unit vocabulary.

I chose to participate in the findings of unit vocabulary,but Samantha also chose unit vocabulary so we were partnered up.Unit vocabulary was about finding new vocabulary that was connected to our unit then find the definition of the word.

Since we were a team of two I found the words while Samantha found the definition.Here is our list of words.

Now I know what your thinking…

WOW Mischa that’s a whole lot of words!

Well it actually isn’t.That’s why i’m really disappointed in Samantha and me for finding such little words with loads of time!

Anyways this is only the document.Here is our real poster.



Well yeah.

I guess that’s all for today!
