This video clip is a good introduction to climate and weather. You need to listen well to work out the difference between them. Today we are going to learn about the different CLIMATE ZONES OF THE WORLD. I wonder what climatic zone Margaret River is in…? See if you can work it out.
Now we are going to work in our booklets to check what we have learned and to see what kind of climate we have in Australia. 😎
You have been investigating landmarks in Australia and now we are going to focus on places in Western Australia! As you read about special kinds of places in your “Let’s Explore Australia” booklet, you will be finding out about:
World Heritage Sites
Reefs and Rivers
Rainforests and Wetlands
We will be investigating West Australian places and natural places closer to home in the South West of Western Australia (in Our Patch)! Use the planners and find out what you need to know – then you will be creating your own FACT SHEET using PicCollage! Have fun!
I have made a new big lego ship. The ship was made from lots of other lego sets. It took me one and a half days to build. I put big booster jets on the bottom of the ship. My ship is one that flies in the air.
I also made a balcony at the back of the ship, but I took it off because I thought it didn’t look any good and I couldn’t build a room on with it.
Wow, Fynn! There is so much detail in this construction. Please give your feedback to Fynn by using the comments box. Mrs Veary 😎
As we come to the end of our Spinning in Space inquiry, we need to think about what we have learned about living on our amazing planet – Planet Earth!
What makes it the only known planet in our solar system with life on it? What are the special conditions on Earth that allow life to flourish?
What are the problems facing our planet and its environment?
What can each one of us do to protect our planet into the future?
To gather our thoughts, we will be writing down all our ideas in a PMI chart (Plus, Minus and Interesting or Ideas). Then we can work out which problem to focus on to do some research before working out how we can help.
Here are some websites you can use for your research:
This morning you will be learning another strategy to do subtraction. We will be counting on to take away by finding the DIFFERENCE between the two numbers using the empty number line.
We will be playing a game called CONVICT COUNT ON to explain how this strategy works in a fun way.
You can have a go on your own later or at home to use the strategy online with this SUBTRACTION ON A NUMBER LINE activity. You can change how big the numbers are that you have to subtract and you can actually see the jumps.
You can also watch a couple of videos I made of this lesson, using an Empty Numberline to count on and count back to subtract. You can find it on Dolphinkids by following these instructions:
