For the hydroponics I’m going to plant the small seedlings on thursday. I need your help to do this. I will appreciate if anyone comes and help. It will only take a few minutes and we won’t get wet. This crop will be Thai vegetables so it will grow quickier than salad so we can harvest on the last week of school.
Watch the video again. Make a comment and describe some of the conversations you had while trying to make the continuum.
Yesterday was Earth Hour. I hope all of you didn’t use electricity. My family (my mum, brother and I) closed our lights for all the Earth Hour. We didn’t use computers or anything else too. I think we should have Earth hour more often and it should be longer, also big businesses should also take part. Here is a video of Sydney on Earth hour and official video for Earth hour.
For my exibition I doing a topic on Cars Idling I would like to ask you some questions:
- What do you think about Idling?
- What does it make you feel like when you see a car Idling?
- What would you say about idling?
- What would you say to someone who is Idling?
For the next lot of hydroponics we need to grow and start the small seedlings. There is the 10 day holiday break so I had to take it home and start growing it. Here are some pictures of it being grown.
All of you already know about me and the hydroponics so I don’t really need to explain. Mr. Adrian wants me to choose 3-5 volunteers to take care of the hydroponics with Mr.Adrian and I. Mr. Sam came up with a good idea to create this posting for people who want to be the volunteers. You need to make a comment and tell me why I should choose you. Remember that I will choose people who are interesting and I will also choose girls. Quickly comment because the deadline is Monday. The time we take care of the hydroponics is not decided yet. After I choose the people we will have a meeting with Mr. Adrian and talk about the details. What I already know is that we need to take care of it on the morning and one on the afternoon.
