Testing model structures for earthquakes

Kea students learnt how engineers design and construct buildings to withstand earthquake damage by building their own model structures using toothpicks and marshmallows. They experimented to see how earthquake-proof their buildings are by testing them in an earthquake simulated in a pan of Jelly.

Treemendous Writing

Dear TreemendousImage result for treemendous


My name is Lukas I am from Kokatahi-Kowhitirangi School I am 10 years old
and I am sending you this letter because I am a big fan of baby creatures and
other types of animals like birds for instance. I would love to build an
observation tree house for native birds so older kids like me can observe all the
things they do and how they live. I think this would be a blast for all the kids at
our school because it will be an amazing new learning experience and it will
help tuis’s and kereu’s and bluebirds and other NZ birds live in peace. 


If I was to win that 10,000 to make my bird observation tree house I  would
make it out of wood and put all kinds of different native berries like these. Make
like a little garden patch in the tree house and that's what we will feed the birds. I have a few ideas how we can make this happen but it may need a lot of adult help and support. I only have one question are we aloud to nail some planks of wood in the tree?


In summary I would love it if I won but don’t mind if i don’t thanks for reading
and hope you like my idea.

Moterbike World

   
           Motorbike World
This is not real


It was one sunny day when I saw a hill It had no silky grass was on this hill, there were big
long lines like what you see after someone has ploughed a paddock but a lot smaller.
I walked around the mysterious hill and then I gave up. My brain was cooked I felt like I was
melting and and I still couldn't, then suddenly I heard a horn and then some revs and all of
sudden the answer to what the hill was zoomed into my head the hill was a RACE JUMP and
I am under it. I don’t know why but my body froze and I just sat there about 4 mins later the first
lot of motorbikes grunted and zoomed over me about four hours later I thought the race had
endured but one motorbike came and hit me in the head BANG!!! I woke up in hospital again
and they said it had been a month. THE END
