Exhibition 2

March 31, 2010

Today I achieved a lot as we finished our questions and we chose the six best and wrote them on a paper and then typed them up. My group really cooperated well today. We also did a lot more research about our issue.

Today I learnt several things like some car companies are forced to make hybrid and eco friendly cars. They do it do save the environment. I also learnt that Bangkok was the third city to take action about the traffic problems.

Today my sources were guest speakers and the internet as we had to research about traffic problems in Bangkok. I used the internet most of the time today as that’s how I found all my information.

My question is how does the government control the traffic in Bangkok as it is very bad?

My plan for the next few days is to continuing cooperating with my group and continuing my research.

Bangkok Universtiy Field Trip

February 9, 2010

Today we visited the ‘Young Guns Design Exhibition’ at the  Bangkok Universtity Rangsit Campus. It featured award wining designs from around the world. We were also lucky enought to visit the Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum and saw a display of university student work about the marketing of MK Restaurants.

It was a good opportunity for us all to reflect on ‘what makes a good presentation’ and to see how professional designers have implemented the use of ‘clear’, ‘simple’ and ‘to the point’ images to get their message across.

Homework for 6CB: Leave a comment to this posting. Think about the first Exhibition we saw this morning. How do you think designers use clear, simple images to get their message across? How did the designers get their ideas ‘to the point’?

Think about the display you shared with a partner whilst at the exhibition today. Write a short paragraph explaining:

  • What the display showed.
  • Why you chose to share that display.
  • What the designer’s message was.

Here are some pictures of what we saw today. Share these with your parents and show them what you saw. Explain what you learned about displaying information and how you could use this in your Y6 Exhibition Presentation.

Cockroach

December 10, 2009

Cockroach are one of the larger group of insects are found all of the earth. They are usually dark brown in color and have flattened body and a relatively small head. They have two large antennae to sense food. They have three pairs of hairy legs and they have two pairs of wings and the top one which is harder to protect the soft body inside. The second pair of wings are very light which helps them to fly. Cockroaches are the common  pest found on household things.    

POEM

Creepy creepy disgusting pest with two long sticks,

hides in a spooky wet corners and try not be seen.

When the little pest comes out of hiding,

we like to chase it down and kill it.

There a disgusting pest lying squished,

Thank God we got rid of  one.

There another pest creeps……….

FIRE ANTS

December 10, 2009

Fire ants form a raft to save themselves from water

FIRE ANTS  are one of the most dangerous and aggressive ants.  They live in colonies made up of a queen, male drones, and female workers. Fire ants have a painful sting which can cause swelling and bumps. They can adapt to any place or environment. They are also survivors. For example if lots of water enters  their nests, they will come together and form a huge ball or raft that is able to float on the water!

Fire Ants are dark reddish brown with oval bodies. Their bodies are divided into a head, thorax and abdomen. Fire ants also have three pairs of legs and  a pair of antennae.

They live in large mounds in open areas and feed on plants, seeds and even crickets. Their nests are usually made in soil near moist areas.Sometimes, their mounds are as high as 40 cm! 

Fire ants often attack small animals and kill them.When they bite, they send a poisonous sting into the bite. This sting feels like burning fire. This is why they are called fire ants!

FIERY FIRE ANTS

Fiery red creatures

That have a mighty sting

In their strong towers

They rule as kings

Come rain or water

They’ll float away to safety

Stay away from these red warriors

And the dangers thay bring!!

HONEY BEES!

December 10, 2009

A honey bee collecting pollen in its "baskets"

Description:

HONEY BEES are insects that live in large colonies in hives . Each colony is made up of a queen bee, male drones and female worker bees. They produce the honey we eat, and pollinate flowers, fruits and  vegetables.

Their bodies are made up of three parts:1) a head 2) a thorax 3)an abdomen .The head has five eyes and can see UV light. The thorax is brown and hairy and the abdomen has orange-yellow and black bands. They have three pairs of legs, feelers and two pairs of wings. The back legs have special”baskets” made of stiff hair, to carry pollen back to the hive.  They have a hard skeleton outside their bodies with holes for breathing.

Honey bees may sound sweet, but they have a sting to defend themselves which are quite painful! However, once they sting a human being, they die!!

Honey bees are smart and useful insects. They feed on pollen and nectar in flowers and pollinate the flowers so that new seeds are made. They use this nectar to make honeycombs and honey. These smart creatures use dances to tell other bees where to find food. Nectar and honey give their muscles energy to fly and to keep warm during winter.

Scientists have found out that honey bees are disappearing and dying!! I hope scientists discover how to help them so that we can have all our fruits and vegetables.                                                                             

Honey Bee Poem!

BUZZY BEES

Little stripy creatures

Flitter and flutter by

From red roses to blue violets

And yellow sunflowers too

These are busy little honey bees

Out to drink sweet nector

Then they’ll make some sticky honey

For you and me to eat!

Just make sure you dont disturb them

They have a deadly sting

That will hurt you and me

But will kill the poor thing!

Drangonflies By:Vishuka

December 10, 2009

Dragonflies are types of insects that do not sting or harm humans. They have large eyes and wide, transparent strong wings. They are usually found around lakes, ponds, streams, and wetlands. Fish, turtles, frogs, ducks, herons and larger insects all like to eat dragonflies. Well –built adult dragonflies are experts in hunting and mostly eat other insects. Dragonflies often hunt for food in different sizes of groups when ants are available inTHIS IS A DRAGONFLY!!!! large numbers. Small ponds where the air is fresh, is where dragonflies prefer to stay.

Poem

Dragonflies are darting everywhere,

The flowers are blooming and the sky brightens up.

Dragonflies are here and there,

Sometimes high in the sky.

Sometimes near the water,

Sometimes buzzing around me.

They are my favorite

Because they don’t harm.

They are:

Sweet

Cute

Not too small

Not too big

Just the right size.

I wish there were only dragonflies…

that harm no one.

Again flap, flap flap, goes the orange wings
Flying up high to the sky,
Till the next rest time.
A Butterfly, a beautiful orange Monarch butterfly
Black lines all around, with circles white and yellow.
