Antartica

Did You Know that Antarctica is actually a desert.

If Antarctica’s ice sheets melted, the world’s oceans would rise by 60 to 65 meters. The Antarctic ice cap has 29 million cubic kilometres of ice. Antarctica is 90% of ice on our planet and 0.4% of Antarctica is not covered by ice! For the final fact Antarctica is the only continent with no native species or plants!

Transit Program

Today October the 9th, Chris and Leia came to our school and talked about transport, they talked about the safety health and what you should do before riding a bike, they also showed two videos that are about transport!! We got 2 presents each! It was a fun incursion and I learnt a lot!

I think that it was a very good video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyZhw_DOe2M)

(Dumb Ways To Die) It showed things that you should never do in life. The song is made by Metro (http://www.ptv.vic.gov.au/) and actually got to Number 3 on the iTunes charts!

I also think the Awareness test was good it showed that you shouldn’t just look out for the main thing, also look out for little things! Example- Bikes or Pedestrians!

Here is a video that they showed us, enjoy!

How Baboons have adapted to change?

Anthropologists have been studying for 42 years in Kenya. They have been studying about olive baboons (Papio Anubis) and Shirley Strum is one of them.

About one year ago Shirley found that olive baboons thrive on  prickly pears, a plant that is damaging to eat! In the last two decades (20 years) they had blowne up 20 to 40 million prickly pears!

In the 20th century there were more baboons than humans in Kenya! But today the humans in Kenya have doubled the baboons so they have lost many, because of food resources lowered. This has resulted in baboons learning to eat prickly pears with out getting hurt, rubbing it in dirt before eating.
