Boarding On Liquid, Solid & Gas

Image result for snowboard
Snow, snow is a liquid that can turn into 3 different things it can be a liquid, a solid and a gas and each of these elements create water, steam and ice. If you mix water/liquid and ice/solid it creates snow which is what my family and I are boarding on with our snowboards this holidays!

Ice, ice is a solid which if you fall on it, it can definitely hurt you bad especially if you do a tight turn and fall on your face. Ice is hard to ride on because it’s slippery and hard to do turns unless your an expert like me and just cruise!

Anyway, ice is the hardest kind of snow to ride on because there’s a mountain called Mount Ruapehu in New Zealand, Ohakune, me and my family board there! There are 5 different kinds of sections on the mountain, first at the very bottom there’s Alpine Meadow which is for beginners, Parklane, Movenpick which is full of ice, The Giant and Six Seater!

Steam, steam is a gas that is very frustrating when your trying to board down because you can’t see a thing because the mountain goes above the clouds and we’re in the middle of the clouds so you’ve really got to focus and remember where the track is!

Time, time is precious when your on a snow mountain because every snow mountain has a time limit that stops the chair lifts from anyone going back up to go down unless you walk your way up and board down which sucks, trust me! As I said before every snow mountain has time limit, Mount Ruapehu closes at 4:00 pm! The best time to go there is definitely winter because in the other seasons the snow dries up!

Sides, there are two sides on Mount Ruapehu there’s Turoa and Whakapapa Whakapapa is just a straight down track that is good to practice your turns and s’s which is what my family call it, and Turoa is with all the sections like Parklane Movenpick all those which way better than straight down unless you like going fast!

Cafe, on both sides of the mountain there is a cafe for when you want a break of snowboarding or skiing they normally sell hot food like pies and chips and soft drinks/fizzy but our family use snickers bars to keep us going each day we only get two snickers bars each and there the tiny ones but they still get you going and pumped!

Extension Reflection Term 1 2018

Term 1 wasn’t as cool as Term 2 but still it had a few fun parts in it!
Me and my group had an awesome time together planning and crafting
new ideas for things, my group was called the Environmentalists which
their job is to clean up the land and the environment! Term 1 for me
was average but every year the first term isn’t so fun at first well if
your me!

Each term we have our paideia seminar which we didn’t have this year
because we didn’t have enough time to do it, if you didn’t know
paideia seminars is where a group of people gather together to share
and discuss ideas about a topic or issue.

Extension Reflection Term 2 2018

Term 2 was awesome we had lots of fun creating animations,
researching about our topic and having fun! Every term
extension is the same but if you believe that it is fun then it will
be fun. I had lot’s of fun this term learning creating and sharing.

What I think i did well on is creating and finishing my groups
projects and getting lot’s of research onto my blog.
This terms extension focus/The Provocative Statement was
‘Developing new technologies may be the only way to ensure
the survival of the human race’!

Fix Up Version:
Clutching a bunch of red poppies, Abigail sat on the rickety, moss-covered bench beneath the tree with it's black knotted branches twisted together like a plait, snow falling about her. It felt, in a strange way, as if she had never been there before. But of course she had. The first time had entered the Silver Kingdom had been to remove the poisonous spell placed between the words in the Sanspell story. The second had been to free Bragonsthyme, thereby saving the ice dragons from extinction, which allowed that story to have it's true and happy ending.
