Virtual tour

Compile a list of as many places as you can which allow you to take a virtual tour.

Virtual tour:

Parliament NZ
Virtual tour: Parliament NZ Tour

London Tour 
Virtual tour: London Tour

National Museum 
Virtual tour: National Museum Tour

Virtual tour: Oxford tour

A Virtual tour is a great way to learn online without moving. You can learn lots by a virtual tour. On a virtual tour you buy a ticket online and someone talks and you move your mouse over where you want to look at. A weakness is that you would get lazy and the tour might be outdated. A strength is that the tour might be cheaper that a normal tour because an actual tour is\would be more expensive. I have looked at the mansion tour, the tour of Oxford and more. If you would like to look at some virtual tour click the links above. One of the best virtual tours that I liked was the Oxford one because you can see how big the school is and how many student attend Oxford. The bad thing is that you can't go into and look inside the buildings.

TGC Visit

Today we went to Tauranga Girls College and we looked around the school. We got a pack where it tells us how much everything is. They showed us around the school  and we had to fill out a time capsule that we would see when we have finished Tauranga girls college in 2020. I like how TGC have a ton of choices and academic things that you can do. Also you stay with your tutor class for the hole 5 years in College which is pretty cool. At TGC there was a rubbish bin that was stuck into the ground. They also have their own pool and you can go into it in term 1 and term 4 in the summer time when it is hot, they heat to pool up to make it a little bit walmer.

Advice for years 7's Next Year

When you first start tauranga intermediate it is thrilling and exciting or you can be very nervous, there will probably someone in your class that you will know from you old school or something. Be sure that you be nice to everyone so you can make lots of new and lasting friendships. For the girls I suggest that you wear you P.E shorts on underneath you skirt. Be sure no the do anything that you are not allowed to do while in class time. If you do my ramsley will check you computer and you will get into a lot of trouble. Don't run to the canteen without a teacher because mr Diver might tell you off. Intermediate are some of you best schooling years. Make the most of everything and try your best. Make sure that you only use the Rimu toilets.

Technology Hurt or Help

I think that technology has hurt us a lot as people are getting more and more overweight, less active and more anti - social.  Back in the day kids would make tree houses and play outside but now kids are inside playing on there devices. Kids as young as 2 have there own iPad, iPod and other devices.

Life Ed

In Life Ed Michael told us all about drugs and alcohol and that there were 7 steps of the ladder, and that you should wait till you get to the 7th stage of the ladder until you make your decision on weather or not to use drugs. Drugs can affect you a lot like, family violence, jail, not be able to travel, and the worst being dead. There are many types of drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, wine, ecstasy, sprites, beer and tons more. There are about 3-5% alcohol, in beer, 12-15% alcohol in wine and 35-40% alcohol in sprites. It takes 1 hour for the body to consume a cup or glass of alcohol. Teenagers get drunk more easier\quicker because they have a faster absorption rate and that is when they do silly and stupid things.

We learnt that when\ before you go out to drink you should always have food before so that the process of digestion the alcohol can take a little longer. Class A drugs in New Zealand are: Methamphetamine, Magic Mushrooms, Cocaine, Heroin and LSD. If someone is caught with any of these drugs they can face up to 6 months in jail or if you are the supplier of the drug then you can face life in jail. Kids can start taking drugs at the age of 13 and do it for the rest of there life. Once you start it is really hard to quit but talking drugs can ruin your life make you go bankrupt and steal from family members. Taking drugs can make you look 20 years older then you already are and you also can get scabs on your face and make you ugly.

Web of Addiction Poem

Walking up the ladder year after year, waiting to make that big decision coming up somewhere.

Watching others take the drug, choose your decision wisely and don't become a addic thug.

But one night at a party you take the pill that makes you ill and raises your bill, You look at your reflection in the mirror and think to yourself I have to be a quitter. 

Day by day, night by night things are tough but get better in sight.

Look for other online games which help with drug and health education. Put the links on this doc.

Is the book disappearing?

I think that books are not disappearing because there are still tons of libraries,book shops and online book shops. people think that the "book book' will disappear in about 30 years, but i think that it will take at least another 50-60 years.

In America there are about 30,000,000 trees cut down each year for books to be printed on. And we need trees for oxygen. Books are expensive if you have a lot of them but I bet you would rather carry a lite kindle\ebook then carry a heavy book around. In room 42 there are 9 out of 31 students that have a kindle at home.

If you dropped an ebook then it would most likely break but it you had a book  it would be fine. Since 2005 a 25% drop has occurred where children don't read in there outside of school time. Ebooks are quite popular and tons of people are changing to then as they are light, portable and you can have hundreds of books on it at a time.

Magic Mushrooms

Research one illegal drug in depth.
Find out:
  • class
  • describe how the drug looks
  • how it is made
  • ways the drug is used
  • how it affects the user
  • streetnames
  • negative health effects it has on the user
  • dangers

Write a summary in paragraphs. No pictures.

 Magic mushrooms is a class A drug, the drug looks like a normal mushroom with a long white stem and a brown pointed top. The magic mushroom is not a plant witch means that it is grown from a spore. To make magic mushrooms you need to fill the kit with water, let the water absorb, remove the water. Put the kit in the plastic bag and place it in a good spot. Then wait. harvest, dry and then start over if you want.
