Information Report: Bengal Swamp Tigers – Lisea and Daeyna

We used our smart searching skills to find facts about the Bengal Swamp Tiger. Once we had found the information we needed we made notes in our own words. We used these notes to help us write our information reports. Information reports give readers with information on a chosen topic by providing them with facts.

LI: to write an information report that informs the reader about the Swamp Tiger.

Not many people know that swamp tigers are nocturnal hunters. Swamp tigers, (also known as panthera tigris tigris) are glamorous animals, regardless of their beauty they are vicious beasts that are slowly coming to extinction. These tigers can be found in the mangrove forests of Sundarbans, which is in-between India and bangladesh.

Swamp tigers have an orange coat and black stripes all around their body to help them camouflage with their surroundings. These creatures have a beastly jaw and muscular bodies. They use their enormous and retractable claws to easily take out their prey. Also did you know that they weigh about 453.592kgs?

Bengal tigers are carnivorous animals (only eats meat) they can eat, and kill everything starting from tiny crabs, to human beings. These animals eat wild boars, deers, buffalos, monkeys, unlike other tigers they include marine life into their diet.

Are you aware only about 100 of the bengal swamp tigers remain today? Swamp tigers come from a continent in Asia, you will find that they live between the borderlines of India and bangladesh. They like humid places and live in mangroves forests.

Not many people know that they are unsocial animals, either way these tigers are very protective about their territory. As it says in the opening statement, they live in mangrove forests, because of this they can camouflage easily to hunt for their prey.

Not a lot of people are aware that these beautiful predator populations will decrease if we continue to expand cities.

Chinese Lantern Festival

LI: To use smart searching skills to research correct information.

This tasked we learnt about Lunar New Years, The lantern New Year. We resarched and explained about what or why Chinese Lantern Festival is about and why it is important to them. We then wrote down the most importantly part which was the information. Lastly we certainly decorated and added pictures on the slides to represent what it looks like.

I found this activtie enjoyable and amazing because it helps me and others, learn more different parts about Lunar New Years. My other reason is that I get to be creative and show everyone what we have being learning in class.

Treaty of Waitangi X C.A.R.E Values

LI: To understand the Treaty of Waitangi

In this slide, we combined the CARE values with the Treaty of Waitangi. We connected the Care values with the Treaty of Waitangi.  We wrote how the Treaty of Waitangi or the people included showed the Care Values. What I loved about this activity was that we were able to see how our values connected with the Treaty of Waitangi.

Unpacking Leadership

For this task we were unpacking leadership roles.  I learned what is a team and leadership is. A team is group of people who communicate  and work together collaboratively while leadership is stepping forward and taking risks. Leadership also helps others to strive and achieve  their goals. I also learnt what a role model and responsibility means. A role model a person who looks up to you and takes responsibility from you and responsibility means to be able to take action, have control, being confident, and knows what’s best to help others.

I found this activity interesting because we discovered further information about a team, leadership, a role model, and responsibility.

Copyright and Attribution

Copy right is when you don’t have the right to copy off someone, for example when you are using someone’s picture and dont give them credits, it doesn’t only count with pictures it goes the same with games, songs, videos and more, but Attribution is when you give credits to the author for the piece they made therefore you have the right to use it and when people take a look at your work they will see who and where you got that piece of work from.

I like this task as I can share and tell more people about copyright so they dont make any mistakes in the future.
