Merielle @ Tamaki Primary School: Should Zoos exist?

Merielle @ Tamaki Primary School: Should Zoos exist?: Should Zoos exist? I think that animals should be kept in zoos because  scientist can study the animals so we can know more about them ...

Hi this is another student blogpost and she has just started her blog and she has done such a good first time. Go Merielle!.

Should zoos exist? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Should animals be kept in the zoo?
I think that zoos should exist, this is one of my favourite reason why, I think animals should be kept in zoos because there is a breeding program to look after them.

In my personal opinion I agree that animals should be kept in zoos, for example if animals are stuck in the wild the predators will come for them as if the are dinner, breakfast, and lunch but if they are in the zoo the zoo keepers around the world will try to make sure no predators will come into the zoo to attack the animals as the zoo keepers will protect them. (25 dangerous predators)

My 2nd reason why I think animals should be kept in zoos is because the zoo keepers try to make the zoo look exactly like the animals home for example there is a 40% chance that the animals will not get homesick because of the plants, water, and nature species it will feel home just a bit more safer and trustworthy . The other 60% chance can actually happen because even though the zoo looks like there home the surroundings look the same most animals know it is fake, so there is a chance of animals getting homesick, you can tell if the animals are losing their appetite, not eating, growling, and also for most animals will have a sore stomach and get constipated (Native Remedies website). You might be think what if the plants is not enough for the animals to storage in there stomachs, well that's when you are wrong because in most countries in the universe the animals will get more food than you could get in a restaurant. (Commtechlab)

The last reason I think animals should be kept in zoos is because after the animals get taken care of the animals will be taken back to the wild for example for a couple years and then once they are properly care of, bonus fact the before the animals come to the zoo some scientist checks the animal's DNA to make sure they would become extinct in the wild and are dangerous to make sure they don’t attack the crowd, I hope you agree with me for why animals should be kept in the zoo. (Animal science)

These three reasons, opinions, and examples are why I think that animals should be kept in the zoo.

Samoan conversation part 2

Today for Samoan language me and my buddy Stanley did a Dlo to explain our learning for a Samoan conversation.

WAL how much sugar is in different drinks.

Today Room 7 calculated and solved how much sugar were in different drinks, which Miss Ashley searched for, Miss Ashley had drink some, Miss Morrison gave some to Miss Ashley, (Some were even in the Rubbish Bin).Here is a story and picture if you get confused with the words.

We firstly had to see how much sugar was in the drinks Miss had picked out.

Secondly for some drinks we had calculated the per serve to actually find how much was in the drink

Third a random person Miss Ashley had chosen, had to put in a sugar into a type scale machine, while the other people had to tell the person to STOP when the needle had landed on the right amount.

Lastly we put the amount of sugar in the bag, and we put the bottle next to the finished project (SUGAR).

During this activity I found out that the drink V is 26.05 and Coca Cola can is 27 which means Coca Cola is 0.5 more grams then V. I enjoyed this activity. Ohh bonus tip 'I took the photos'.

The food Pyramid

WALA the FOOD pyramid.

Our Inquiry topic for inquiry, for this term (Term 2) is Fuelling food. Which means learning about the types of food were eating and  how that food is good for your body.

We firstly cut up some foods from a countdown catalogue.

Secondly we had to get  a glue stick and attach to the piece of paper she had given us.

My favourite food is Popcorn and Chicken, I think popcorn should be some and Chicken is quite healthy so I could start eat more.
