Today I watched an artical on Moon Livin and how hard it would be. SOme facts I now know is, moon dust make good bricks when used properly. The Moon has very valiable resources that are very useful in phones and tablets. The best way to set up life on the moon is to use the resources that are already on the moon and use them effectively. I now know what the moon has to offer in terms of what resources it has and how usful they are. I now know how hard it really is to live on the moon. When will humans settle on the Moon
Last week we learnt about the six rooms poem strategy. They are six different steps to help you make a poem.
The first room is Image/Photograph, you picture a picture not thinking of a poem and write it down. The second room is Light, you picture the how much light there is and colours there in your picture and write it down. The third room is Sound, you think of all the sounds that are happening in you picture and write them down.
The forth room is questions like. What do you want to know more about. The fifth room is. What are your feelings? Write down what your feeling in a few words. The sixth room is look over your previous rooms and ideas and choose a word, a line or phrase that feels important and repeat 3 times.

Predict: I predict that this is going to be about work backwards.
Read: I think of a number, multiply it by 3 and then divide by 2. If the result is 18 what was the original number.
Big Question: What was the original number.
Mathematicians Toolbox: Work Backwards.
Solve: First: I times 18 by two which is 36 and then divided it by 3 which 12 and that’s the answer.
Summary: This question was easy using Work Backwards.
Today I watched an article on Healthy vending machines how they are becoming more popular. Some facts I now know are, that there are more vending mechines going around that sell fruit. That the company that’s behind this made this a world first. That there first vending mechine only sold bananas. Some understandings I now have are, that these vendings mechines are becoming more popular and more common. That uying a healthy snack could become more easy. A question I still have is, What is my nearest one?
Predict: I predict that this is going to be about trial and error.
Read: I think of a number, divide it by 2 and then add 12. If the result is 20, what was the original number?
Big Question: What was thhe original number?
Mathematicians Toolbox: Work Backwards.
Solve: First I minused 12 from 20 which is 8 then times it by 2 whixh is 16 and that is the answer.
Summary: I used word backwards and solved the problem easily.
Today I watched an artical on a man called Sam Willoughby who just won the B.M.X world championships and his erg to get more kids riding. Some facts I now are, that assembling a bike from parts that are not already assembled. The very fun to do when you actually do it. The Sam wants every child to ride and stay fit and healthy. Some understandings I now have are, that kids are making bikes all over Australia with Sam. That you must use the right tools to assemble a bike otherwise It mightn’t work. A question I still have is. How many schools are they going to?
Today I watched an artical on the 100th year since then start of ww1 and how it changed our nation and the world. Some facts I recall were, there were over 60 000 Australian casualties in this war and how much of an impact that had on our of only 4-5 million people. The war shaped the world forever and was called the war to end all wars. Once the Duke Ferdinand was killed by an Serbian things erupted and within days war was declared. Some understandings I now have are, How many people died in the war and how much that was for the time. I understand why Australians wanted to enlist even if teenagers. Why didn’t end war from happening again?
