Information report : Alligators - by April

Alligator
Alligators are reptiles that live in Jungles that are near a lot of water.

Appearance :
Alligators have short, sharp teeth. They have little patterns around their body. They have four legs & don’t stand. On sunny days the alligators go into water before their dried from the sun. Their size is 7 feet and 6 inches long, their height is 3-4.6m.


Diet :
Alligators sometimes go into near water to catch their fish, or stay away from the sun. They also eat gars, snails, worms, turtles, insects, & crustacean. To catch their prey they go into not clear water but dirty water so it makes it hard for the fish to see the alligator.

Abilities :
Alligators have very good eyesight, but some can be blind. The alligators that have good eyesight, it's easier for them to hunt its prey. Alligators feel pain, if they don’t feel pain it would be hard for them to live. When it becomes blind they use their great smelling ability to find its way out or to find its food.  They use a sneaky tactic to catch their prey. As in gars, snails, worms, turtles, insects, & crustacean.

Life Cycle :

My reaction to Tama tu - by April

My reaction to Tama tu - link =  Tama tu <- (please watch the video first)


In the short film, there were 5 young maori soldiers going to a house that was broken from the last war. They all had different kind of guns. The leader of the young maori soldiers was watching behind them in case someone would come and sneak behind them. They came to a room and sat down in different places. 1 of them was looking for people with a gun as a sniper. Soon, they were making eachother laugh and playing pranks.


The sniper saw another soldier, he was going to shoot him but saw the soldier playing with a black cat . So, he decided to not shoot him because he is just like him. But, the man died from another young soldier from the corner. Then, a black bird came. We were thinking  that the black bird was in there because the black bird might be trying to warn them to leave or they die from the person who shot the soldier that was playing with the black cat.


The five boys did their prayers, and left, at the end there was a toy soldier, and a maori manaia. The green, toy soldier meant there was a kid, and also about the picture one of the young soldiers picked up of a woman holding a baby. The Manai is the black bird and the toy soldier means the 5 young soldiers.

The Water Cycle- by April

02/04/19- How The Water Cycle Works- by April

Learning Intention=we are using our writing process to make it better.

The water cycle comes from the heat of the sun. It shines on the puddles (From the last water cycle), and then the puddles turn into steam. Since the steam is lighter than air it goes up, and forms into the clouds.

After the cloud turns into liquid vapour now. The cloud gets heavy, The cloud gets heavy, it rains or can become snowy or other types of precipitation.

Image result for the water cycle

Evaporation- evaporation is from the heat of the sun. Then the cloud turns into a liquid vapour now (cause the steam goes into the clouds). Evaporation is when liquid changes to a gas or vapour.

Condensation- Condensation is when the puddles turn into steam and goes to the clouds . Then after that the cloud becomes heavy and it rains, snows, sleet, or hail.

Precipitation- is clouds and when they turn into steam and up to the clouds that turn into a liquid vapour now. And then it falls like rain, snow, hail, sleet and some other types of precipitation.

Collection- is rain, snow, sleet, hail, these types if precipitation. It goes all around the earth but mostly rain and snow can be in snowy places. Parts and into a river or it could make a puddle.

Conclusion- The water cycle never stops because it is a cycle.
