Sydney Leg Team Challenge
Food Glorious Food
For this challenge you need do the following preparation:
- access the video in the ‘To Collect’ folder. This will provide you with the tune you need to learn. You will need to listen to this video a number of times
- collect the word doc with the lyrics that match the video clip.
You will need to use both of these resources to assist you with your team rehearsal.
Remember…the group that records the most entertaining rendition of this song wins a tour voucher that can be ‘cashed in’ during any of the remaining Amazing Race legs.
I’m guessing that this might be the most challenging aspect of the competition so far.
I’d like you to EXPLAIN how your team PREPARED for this CHALLENGE.
Do you know where your plastic bag goes after you throw it away?
Do you know what happens to your plastic drink bottle when you’re finished with it?
At school for the month of July (and a little bit of August too!) are participating in Plastic Free July. Across the next few weeks, our grade will be participating in some plastic awareness activities.
The aim of Plastic Free July is to limit our use of single use plastics, like plastic bags, plastic packaging, plastic straws and plastic bottles. At school we are hoping to have a ‘nude food’ lunch day where we don’t have any single use plastic at all in our lunch boxes for a day.
Your family can take up the challenge if they like- you can try being plastic free for a week, a month or even a whole year.
This is the official Plastic Free July website: http://www.plasticfreejuly.org/
The website has lots of great ideas for how you can reduce the amount of plastic in your day to day lives.
Where in the world? That is the question that will be answered on Monday when we start the first leg of the NGPS Amazing Cyber Race.
Today you had the opportunity to travel to Echuca and practise some of the skills you will need for this inquiry.
Well done to Emma and Rebecca, Joseph and Angus and Jess and Georgia who finished in first, second and third place.
I’d like to know…
What was the most challenging part of this activity today and why?
What was something you learnt in relation to using websites?
How successful were you and your partner at working together?
On Monday your team heads off to a mystery location….GOOD LUCK!
And for another mystery… where will this door take you?

I’m sure all of you are extremely relieved that your learning presentations are over and done with ( well, for most of you at least).
Here is my feedback …I was extremely impressed with the quality of the scripts. It was obvious that you had listened to and followed the criteria for this task. It was obvious that the greater majority of you had taken the time to rehearse. This meant that you were less reliant upon your script or cue cards.
I look forward to reading the reflections about your presentation on your blogs.
And once again,
One of the pages on your blog will be titled About Me.
Here you will talk about you…your family, interests, your likes and dislikes and more.
Sounds simple doesn’t it? BUT…how do you share this information without giving away too many personal details about you? As you know, we have to keep in mind our digital footprint.
Below is a link that takes you to a web site that contains links to student blogs, that contain an about me page, that contains personal information. Hmmm…lots of contains. Am I trying to make a point?
Explore these. What ideas have you gathered for your page?
Today the Passive Energy House project came to an end…5,4,3,2,1…zero.
The pressure in the classroom was palpable.
We spent a great deal of class time discussing the technology process.
I’d like to know …Which of these images best explains the process your team followed? Click on each image to enlarge it.
Which is most challenging …building words or building a Passive Energy House?
In class we have been investigating the building blocks we use to construct our words. Unfortunately, with word building, there is no clear design brief.
We build words using a combination of base words, prefixes and suffixes…hmm…this can be very confusing.
Amy in Miss C’s class stumbled upon this resource. Great work Amy!

Did you learn anything?
Talking blogging…this is an excellent student blogger site. Visit the student blogs that are linked to the side bar on the right. Take time to explore them.
Then ask yourself….
What impressed you? What would you like to learn to do? What questions do you have?
Oh… if you visit the ‘Getting started’ page, you might find answers to questions you have. Especially you Joseph!
I look forward to your comments.
There are posts and there are great posts.
Keep in mind your blog is your online space to share your learning journey, to communicate globally, to celebrate success and reflect.
This link below may provide some ‘food for thought’. and promote discussion.
We are almost at the point where we will begin constructing our Passive Energy House.
Your team should have passed the ‘Mrs Kane and Miss Condon quiz’ about the elements of passive design. Once you have done this, you have received your building permit!
By now you should have discussed this task with mum or dad. Soon you will meet as a team ( knee to knee and eye to eye), to decide which materials you need and whose responsibility it is to provide them.
Remember…no materials, no building.
Oh and this web site might provide you with some food for thought.
