Bird Masks

We made bird masks this week. We were careful of the colours we chose to help represent our favourite birds.  Can you figure out which birds we have tried to recreate?


Learning how to use Powtoon

Today during our digital facilitation Maria showed us how to use Powtoon. We had a go at creating a Powtoon about our inquiry. Here is Miss Spies's Powtoon. Click on our individual blogs to see our ones.

Using Google Sheets

Room 9 have been learning about  New Zealand birds as part of our environmental and sustainability inquiry. This week we learnt about statistical inquiries and did one about New Zealand Birds.  We collected data about Room 9s favourite birds and we then used google sheets to put the data in. We had a go at creating a graph or chart. Keep an eye out tomorrow for our graphs.
