GameOn 

The boys have been playing too many video games and lying to their parents. Then a boy plays at night and are barely awake the next morning. The parents should take the computers out of the rooms and ban them.Dean has been grumpy and has not been sleeping so his mum and principal are going to discuss his issues. I reckon he should delete the game or be banned from his computer.

Lord Howe Island stick insect

The Lord Howe Island stick insect was at the brink of extinction, but they were rediscovered in Balls pyramid in 2001. They are still there today because of Zoos Victoria. Melbourne Zoo staff continue to conduct intensive research into stick insect diet, behaviour and biology. They also maintain a breeding program for them. But before all this, they were thought to be extinct for 80 years! That’s a long time.

I got my information and photos from http://www.zoo.org.au/melbourne/animals/lord-howe-island-stick-insect

 

Science

Science is a very complicated yet wonderful subject to learn about. If you think that science was just another boring subject you learn at school, there’s much more to it. Here are some facts:

Most dinosaurs are known from just a single tooth or bone.

Ice melting in Antarctica has created a small shift in gravity.

There are ten times more bacteria cells than body cells

The Big Bang theory was actually theorised by a catholic priest.

You can start a fire with ice.

Every time a woodpecker’s beak hits a tree, it’s head is subject to 1000 times the force of gravity.

I love science because it is part of our everyday live and some people don’t even know. I reckon science is the best subject in the world.

 

Grandparents’ Day

My grandmothers couldn’t make it to grandparents day because they live in India. But they are the most kindest, sweetest, and most caring people I know. And I bet if they could make it to grandparents day, they would definitely come. They live in South India in Kerala. But I do get to see them once per two years. Even though they weren’t here, I still had a great time. My favourite bit of today would be versing my friends in maths games.
