Technology in the future

Technology has changed in so many different ways, say like when I was in prep we did not have laptops, then in year 4, that’s when we got laptops, and now Jamo has IPads. So I think in the future there will be heaps more technology we can use and you can speak into it as a command, say like open ….

So that is what I think technology in the future will be like.

Being Cyber Smart

Today in ILearn we leant about Cyber Safety and we looked at some vidoes and some pictures of peoples instagram acounts and they blurred out the pictures and they had some lables of what they have done wrong and we did that for facebook as well.

My top 3 tips on staying safe on the web are:

1. Put your profile on private.

2. do not post inappropriate things on your acount or of anyone else.

3. Stay away or don’t add people you don’t know.

Water

Where does our water come from? Our water comes from a river a long way away and the pipes brings the water all the way to Warrnambool and also the Otway Rangers.

The steps to make sure our water is safe to drink are:

Water is collected from rivers, dams or underground, and pumped through pipes to where it is needed.

Raw water from rivers is stored here   to allow solid particles to settle to the bottom.

Special chemicals (called alum) are   added to help impurities sink to the bottom and be removed.

This process makes impurities settle   to the bottom so that they can be removed.

Special chemicals are added to float impurities   to the surface, so they can be removed.

The water is filtered through   different filters (eg: sand filter) to clean the water.

The pH of the water (how acidic it is) is checked and adjusted to the proper level.

The water is disinfected so that it is   safe to drink (using chlorine or other methods).

Clean drinking water is stored until   it is needed by customers.

Ecosystems

Today in science we did a sheet on food webs. We had to go into this game thing where we had to make our own food webs with some animals in a list and we had to pick 8 animals. We had to anwser some questions on the sheet and we also got told what a carnivore, omnivore and a herbivore was. My species where Plants, decomposers, bush rat, insects, snake, wedge-tailed eagle, fox and a goanna.

In normal conditions most of the animals died and ionly the plants, insect and bush rat where left.

In the next one we had to add a cat and all the results changed. Everything died but Plants and insects.

 

Rock cakes

In food we are making rock cakes on Thursday, this is the receipe:

Pre heat oven to 180 degrees.

  • Makes 12

1 and 1/2 cups of self raising flour.

7. Bake for 15-20 minutes. They are ready when they are light golden brown in colour.

8. Cool rock cakes on wire rack to cool down before presenting your best three on small whit plate.

Science animal

I created an animal that is perfectly adapted to  life on Maailma.

Here is a description of the planet.

1. Maailma
This planet is dark and cold most of the time. It is very mountainous. It rains almost all day. Because of the wet, dark conditions, the only plants that grow well are small mosses and funguses. Animals on this planet include a type of mouse, a large nocturnal hunting cat, fish, and a variety of insects.

My animal is named T-snowman.

The adaptations it has made are:

  • size: 2 metres tall.
  • movement: very quick with its big legs.
  • It eats the cats, insects, mice and fish.
  • Food and water: It hunts during the day and can hear well with its big ears and stabs his prey with his sword like fingers and gets his water from the rain.
  • Warmth: T-snowman gets his warmth from his big fur coat.
  • Shelter: It shelters in a cave high up in the mountains with T-bone the dragon his friend.
  • Self-defence: T-snowman defends himself with help from T-bone and blocks the attacks of attackers with his sword like fingers as a sheild.
