This is my Lit circles Podcast.
The bridge stops in the middle how cool! It seem like an awesome trip to go over a bridge stoping in the middle of the river, I can’t wait to look down into the luscious water and see fish and beautiful things in the water. But as we got on all hope was lost instead of the bridge being made to stop it actually was crumbling beneath our own 2 feet. We all tried to fun back to the entrance but it was closed with a gate, but I woke it was a dream, I looked around, I’m in hospital.

What worked well: everyone had the script they new their role and line and did their homework.
Considerations for next time: we could have gone for longer.
Plusses, minuses and interesting things of pod casting:
Plus – we all got to have parts and got it done.
Minus – we didn’t go for long enough.
Interesting – the into and outro music turned out to be funny even though
Research Methods: I researched on the internet, I went on 6 different sites to check if my information was correct.
Note Taking: I paraphrased and put the information into my own words all into my science book.
How you worked with your partner: I think that I worked well with Tait but he would have done more work because he chose to take the power point home to finish it off.
Form of presentation: we chose to do a power point.
Honest account of the actual amount of work you completed: I completed all questions, help with the power point and checked the power point, made my que cards and practiced.
Anything that you would change: I wouldn’t change anything.
Who would eat something like that its… its yellow! Yuk! But bananas are yellow, well.. I don’t like them either! But its just cheese. “I HATE YELLOW THINGS” she screamed and barged out the door “ doesn’t like yellow things” I muttered under my breath. I can’t believe her I said.
This is the worst day of my life, like way couldn’t she just eat the yellow cheese I mean cheese don’t come in any other colour, this is disgraceful. And there the fight between brother Billy and sister Lilly started. It was a tragic day for both of them.
In Palau, fishing is a way of life. Just ask Oreall! He’s out here trying to catch some dinner with his dad, but that’s getting harder and harder to do!
“There used to be a lot of fish here when I was young, but now they’re running out, fast.”
Palau is here. It’s made up of 250 tiny islands and a whole lot of ocean! Around 21 thousand people live here and a lot of them earn money from tourism. People come from all over the world to see things like jellyfish, sharks and turtles.
But another thing that’s a big earner for the people of Palau is tuna. Out on the ocean, big fishing boats bring up massive hauls of tuna and bring it back to be sorted! Each fish can weigh anywhere between 25 and 70 kilos! But the people of Palau have started noticing a problem. The fishing industry has gotten so big lately that a couple of tuna species are starting to go endangered.
“Bigeye( a type of fish) is becoming threatened and so we have to start taking care of the Bigeye.”
But people have been fishing here for ages so why are the fish disappearing now? Well out in the ocean around Palau some fishing companies are now using some pretty fancy technology, like this. It’s called a fish aggregating device. It attracts schools of fish so fishing boats can bring them up and have started to catch many, many more. That’s helping some boats take more than they’re allowed to, which is illegal. So the Palau marine police patrol the waters trying to find anyone that is breaking the rules.That’s what Oreall’s dad does, when he’s not teaching Oreall to fish, and his job is very important to him.
“I grew up as a fisherman, I spent a lot of my time in the water, and to grow up and work on the Remeliik protecting our waters is everything to me.” (local)
Back on their boat, Oreall’s dad teaches Oreall the same lessons he teaches fishing boats; that sustainable fishing is important.
As we grow up, our bodies change. Some of those changes are pretty obvious, but others we can’t see. Like the changes that happen to our brains!
This is Brian, he’s a growing brain. Hi Brian! During his teenage years, Brian’s growing constantly. That makes him smarter, but it also leaves him vulnerable. So what would happen if Brian was exposed to alcohol?
Alcohol is a type of drug and if you too much it be really dangerous but in larger amounts it can even kill you. Alcohol goes into your blood stream and then goes into your brain.
Brian’s made up of billions of tiny nerve cells, which send messages around the body, telling us how to move, what to say and what to do, and alcohol interferes with those messages.
On the outside, the effects are obvious. Alcohol hinders your ability to think, speak, and see things properly. You might not be able to walk, you might feel sick, and worst of all, you might make bad decisions, which is why people are more likely to get into fights or have accidents when they drink.
While some alcohol can be alright for adults, it’s a different story for teens. Experts say drinking alcohol can hurt two important areas of Brian, which during his teenage years, are going through an incredibly important stage of development.
The hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex. Damage to the hippocampus makes it harder to store memories and learn new things, while damage to the prefrontal cortex can affect your decision-making abilities. That’s not good news for teen ages as he grows up. But there are lots of other reasons to be careful with alcohol, too.
Over a long period of time, drinking can cause liver damage, stomach problems, and heart disease, and even cause of cancer.
It’s pretty clear that alcohol is a real risk to teens, and adults need to be responsible with it. And for now at least.
Phones are making it dangerous on the street, next to trains and trams and on the road. And lots of accident happened when people have their head stuck in their phones.
Headphones can also be a problem because people walk across the street, road or anywhere the can fall, trip and get hurt. Headphones don’t allow you to pay attention to other people or roads you may be in an accident or cause an accident for someone else. And there is also no law that says that people have to pay attention or take their headphones off, so people are risking their life just for music.
Predict: I predict this will be about working backwards.
Read: I think of a number,multiply it by 3 and the divide by 2. If the result is 18, what was the original number?
Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.
Big Question: What was the original number?
Mathematicians toolbox: I used working backwards.
Solving: First i new that i needed to work backwards so i needed to use inverse operation so it became 18 times 2 divided by 3 and the answer is 12. i was working backwards and using inverse operations.
Conclusion: I learnt that you need to work backwards in these questions, like theses and use inverse operations. my answer in the end turned out to be right.
On the 3rd of September it was commemoration day for “the battle for Australia”. The day started at 10:00am and went till 12:30pm during this time we honoured the soldiers who lost their lives for Australia, to keep it the way it is now.. we made prayers and sang songs: “be still my soul” and “I am Australian” . we did this to pay tribute to the soldiers and stood around the eternal flame an placed flowers around it to show respect. 6 students from different schools got up to deliver written speech about what the solders went through and how they dealt with it.
We also had a jet fly over us simular to the ones used in the war.
That day we learned more about our country, our history and how it all came to be. the war went from 1941 to 1945.
That day not only did we pay tribute to the fallen soldiers who were fighting but to the soldiers who were captured, the people who supplied them and the nurses.
