Why so much plastic

In Room 6 we are writing speeches. We were allowed to choose any topic we wanted. Here is my opinion about plastic and the sea... I hope you enjoy, hopefully i can change your mind.

 ❌Why is there so much plastic?❌ Why is there so much plastic in the ocean well stay tuned? What can we do to help our sea animals? How can we help the environment? What causes there to be so much plastic in the ocean, you may ask? Well what happens is that people drop their rubbish then when it rains the sea water will rise up and then pull back all that rubbish into the water then it will finally break down into trillions of plastic particles, which are called micro plastics. All of those plastic particles will be all floating around in the ocean causing pollution and then when the sea animals like fish getting there food they will get all the harmful plastic in the fish body system that is all around the water so the fish have all these small plastic microbeads,plastic pellets,microfibers in their body and when they get there food there body will be filled with all that bad stuff, That causes death. What can we do to help our sea animals? Here are some facts about my reasons and how to help you... 1.You could use only a few plastic products. -choose to buy products with minimal plastic wrapping eg fruit in plastic box or pick loose and put in reusable produce bags. Choose cardboard boxes with food like cookies,Crackers,Tea,Coffee,Eggs,Juice boxes,Ice blocks,cereal boxes and lots more some are not always in cardboard. 2.Have Ocean Friendly products or environment products brands like Eco Store and Earthwise or use less plastic and more metal and reusable bags 3. Go and volunteer in a community to help the ocean -Volunteer 4.Use fewer plastic more biodegradable that will break more quickly and help the environment that can break down into natural materials that will not harm the environment as much. 5. So be careful what you buy coral jewellery,tortoise shell hair accessories. And also don’t throw plastic out your car window or in the water around you just remember if that was you you wouldn’t like it if your house got destroyed or people dumping rubbish on your house NO! So don’t do it to the sea animals home! So next time you see rubbish on the side of the road go and pick it up. Think twice before you do litter rubbish just think about the earth in 20 years time and the animals before they are all gone for new generations.

Maths DLO

In Term 2 my maths group were learning about how many tens are in twos and three digit numbers We created this slideshow to help us. See if this can help you to figure out how many 10s are in 2 and three digit numbers.

Persuasive Writing

In Room 6 we have been working on persuasive writing. I chose to try and persuade others that I would rather be incredibly smart. Please enjoy my writing and consider if you would rather be incredibly smart or incredibly funny. I would love for you to comment your opinion and why.

I would rather be incredibly smart then incredibly funny.

Here are my reasons why...

If you were smart you could get into a good University and high school students in America, have to get good grades or do sports like football and cheerleading or other sports to get into a good college/university. But if your smart you won’t have to worry about getting a scholarship or good grades because it just happens for you naturally.

And if your incredibly smart after a few good years of university and good grades and exams and tests you can get a job you want and also a good high paying job like a lawyer,computer hardware, Scientific and Technical Nutritionist, engineer,Information security analyst,electrical and electronics engineer,aircraft pilot/flight engineer,marketing and sales manager,environmental scientist/geoscientist and many other high paying jobs.

Becoming an adult moving out of home then getting a house loan and a car to go to work, then getting a job to pay bills is very stressful for most young adults because some young adults don’t have enough money to pay all of their bills then they get very stressed which is not good for your health.

Would you be incredibly smart or funny?
