Today in our science class we all watched a Auckland Museum Volcanic Eruption together!!
So it was my first and only time coming to the country of New Zealand coming to spend Christmas with my family who lived in Mission Bay,where I saw something that I couldn’t imagine out in the beach where we live. As I was just getting dinner out on the table with my family we could hear a weird, freaky sound so I decided to pull the curtain and peek out the window. “Oh No” I said, there's a Auckland Volcanic eruption, myself and my family were very scared as we heard clashing, cracking, loud noises. As we watched it started off with a small shaking earthquake that was caused by the magma pushing through the rocks of the crust, and as it erupted it formed a huge group of dark, black ashes exploding everywhere,cracks and fissures it was a disaster!
As there was a lot of ash exploding everywhere it became bigger and bigger, Bombs and blocks clashing into the sea and everything was just destroyed looking ugly.
At the end it formed a little Island/Lava mounting up, cooling down that ends up turning into rocks which forms mountains, and the Misson Bay sea became very Nasty.
The main purpose of Nathan and Oscar’s trip was to find/Discover where their ancestors were from so they did a DNA test and sent it to Oxford where they would get evidence. Nathan and Oscar travelled on a Takitumu to different Islands to discover where they came from and what behind their stories and they couldn’t wait to see their families and to know more about them. When they went to Taiwan it was their first time tasting something called Betel Nut is something that you chew and it can sometimes affect your teeth because it hard, but when you are done chewing it you spit it out. In Taiwan Betel nut is their tradition because they have been doing it for 2,000 years.When they travelled to Samoa where Oscar comes from it was time for Oscar to show his mum the DNA Test after Nathan and Oscar went to church together with Oscar’s mother. From my point of view I think that Nathan and Oscars trip was successful they had laugher,fun, enjoyment and they also found out facts as they went along each and every country that they travelled too.
From today in our reading lesson I learnt how to make connection with the text by using the 5 finger words and also I have learnt to share and collaborate with others by comparing and contrasting our work.
