What sports were represented in the video? Do you think that the animals in the video were well suited to the sport they were doing? Research and find out which creatures would be suited to which sports and why? For example the cheetah would be best suited to which sport in the olympics?

  1. Puma and jaguar are fit for athletics because they run really fast. How fast Jaguar 80 kph, (50 mph) puma 45 kph, (28 mph)
  2. Armordillo is not fit for weightlifting because they are not strong.
  3. Sloths are fit for gymnastics because it is the only animal in rio the can climb trees.
  4. Crocodiles are good at diving because they can swim underneath them in the water.
  5. Howling monkey are good at beach volleyball because they can jump really really high.
  6. Anteaters are fit for Hammer throw because they has a good grip.

The Amazon rainforest in Brazil. The area of it is 5,000,000km2 . There is a river going right through the Amazon rainforest. (2,100,000 sq mi) of the rain forest is covered in trees, bushes and vines. Different kind of creatures live in the Amazon rainforest like the Hoatzin, Mygalomorphae, Howler monkey, Heliconia, Brown-throated sloth, Emperor tamarin, Blue poison dart frog, Jaguar, Bald uakari, Bullet ants and parrot.  
It is very different to New Zealand's because the animals.
This Cat is done in the style of a famous Brazilian artist Romero Britto. Make your own piece of art in the same style. You can do a cat or pick something else as the center of your art but it should be NO bigger than A3, you can use anything on the arts trolley. If you would like anything else ask a teacher. Before you start answer these questions:
A)What does the artist use to show the outline of his art?  
B) How has he divided the background?
C) How has he coloured it in?

Hello bloggers I am going to blog about robotics day 
Here is a video of robotics

I had a lot of fun at robotics me and zane worked together and it was pretty hard. We got up to step 27. The hardest part was putting it all together and making sure that the pieces are the right size. The  easy part was reading the instructions and getting the right pieces out.
We did not use a book like the normal Lego we used an app called Lego mind storms you can only get it on Apple devices (IPad)(iPhone)(MacBook).
