Usain Bolt



Walt : locate and evaluate information about Usain Bolt on the internet.

My Reflection

I was able to get information about Usain Bolt on a wikipedia and then double check the information by looking it up on another website.
I found this activity hard because it was hard to find the exact information you need/wanted.
Next time I could try to find more useful and interesting information about Usain Bolt.

Matariki / Moon Phases



Walt : accurately identify and organise the phases of the moon.

I was able to identify and organise the phases of the moon by putting the moon pictures and name them correctly.
I learned that the Waxing Crescent and Waxing Gibbous is on the left side for the southern hemisphere and the Waning Crescent and the Waning Gibbous is on the right side. I also learned that, if you look at the moon at the northern hemisphere, it is the opposite of what you will see in the southern hemisphere.
Matariki is related to the moon in a way but I forgot.
Next time I could try to look at the moon at night and try to figure out what the moon is, eg. Waxing Crescent, Waning Gibbous, First Quarter.
