This term at school my grade (5AH) has been assigned projects every week. We were given a different space topic each week and then had to make something about that topic. Some ideas were a poster, a Prezi, a power-point presentation, a booklet, a diarama ect. On the last project we had three weeks to work on it. Usually we had only one week on each project. The topic was a single planet. So we had to choose a planet to work on. I decided to choose Saturn. There are 8 planets in the Solar System. The order goes Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
I made 7 things to do with Saturn. They are an iBook, a PhotoPeach, a diagram, a diarama, a drawing, a collage and I wrote information in my homework book about Saturn.
I have really enjoyed our Space topic this term. I have learnt heaps. To show you my learning of Saturn I will show you this PhotoPeach I made for my presentation.
I had heaps of fun on my holiday but I won’t tell you what I did every day or else it would be a very, very long post.
So instead I will tell you my highlights with information:
Swimming in the swimming pool: There were 3 big swimming pools at the Merlin Beach Resort. There was also a baby pool and a spa. My favourite swimming pool was one with a water slide.
Shopping in Patong: There is this enormous shopping area in Patong that sells anything you need. By the end of our holiday I had bought quite a bit from there.
Going on the Elephant Trek: We rode on an elephant for 1 hour. The elephant my mum and I were on was so slow. She was 59 years old. Facts: Elephants can live up to 120 years old and can drink 250 litres of water a day. The elephant we were on stopped for about 10 minutes because it was that thirsty.
Going on the Phi Phi Island Tour: We went on a speed boat to go to different islands around Phi Phi Island. They were so beautiful. The water was so clear. We went snorkelling and saw a lot of fish. My brother and I had to have life jackets on because it was very deep.
Getting my hair braided: I got my hair braided twice because the first time my braids were coming out. The second time I chose the colours pink, purple and light blue.
Seeing the show FantaSea: FantaSea is a big performance in Phuket. When we saw it the stage was very big and there were heaps of people there. There is magic, elephants doing cool tricks, dancing, singing, fireworks and firecrackers. The fireworks and firecrackers were so loud.
Here is a PhotoPeach of my wonderful holiday:
Have you ever been to Thailand?
Where would you like to visit in the world that you haven’t visited before?
There are so many places I would like to visit in the world. I have been on heaps of family holidays. Some of the places we have been to are Fiji, Noosa, Moama, Halls Gap, Sovereign Hill, Merimbula and Mooloolaba.
I would like to visit a lot of places. It is fun exploring other places and finding out facts. Here are the names of the countries I would like to go to:
U.S.A! In the U.S.A I would like to go to Disneyland and meet some of my blogging buddies
Indonesia! If I ever get to to go to Indonesia I would like to try out the different things you can do there and also get my hair braided.
New Zealand! My gran and papa have been to New Zealand before and they said it is lovely there so I would love to go and find about there history and things like that.
England! I would like to go to England to see what it’s like there.
This year I am going to Phuket, Thailand and I am looking forward to seeing what it’s like and also getting my hair braided.
