Palerment

Parliament

This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • John Key sits on the fourth set on the right side of the speaker.
  • David Carter is the speaker of the house.
  • The opposition leader is Andrew Little.


Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.

I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury


In this project I was working with Yejoon and we decided to create… a water filter.


Here is a link what we made.
taking action
In this project we decided that our success criteria were:
    
A good TV ad, water filter or Children’s Story needs...
Why is this important?
Needs to clean the water.
Because that is what a water filter does and if it doesn’t produce clean water people can get sick.
Needs materials.
Without the materials you can’t make anything.
Needs to be strong.
Because you could just drop it and it would break.
Needs to be quite small/must be easy to transport
If you can’t move the water filter  around in small places. It means you have to go to the water filter and use it.
Has to last long.
So you can use it over and over and it makes the water clean every time.

Overall our project met/do not meet this criteria because we created a drinker bill water but it was green
