We have been doing some data on invertebrates this week in class 6 and today we went on a hunt to see which insects we could find, we checked the planting area in the school and went up to the forest to see what we could find in there, after making a tally chart we came back to class to write it up neatly in our topic books and do the total amount of different insects we found and which category they went in.
This afternoon class 6 have been researching Victorian inventions, using the iPad we gathered information and wrote it up about an inventor in the Victorian times he was named Alexander Graham Bell, he first invention was created when he was aged 12 it was a device to separate the grain from the husks quickly, this interested him after he visited a flour mill and seen how slow the process of de-husking wheat grain was.
