Making a Origami Cup

Earlier this week at Extension, we made cups using the art of Origami.  Origami is a type art which includes folding paper to make anything you want. During this Origami session, I made a movie to show that it really happened. I know it seems imposible but it worked. Follow the steps and try make it to see if you can do the magic.
P.S- Make sure the water stays in your cup for 5 seconds or so.

Going to The Blues Game


 Waiting upon the motorway all dressed in blue, my Aunty , brother and I just couldn’t wait to get to the Blues game. While my dad was driving, my favourite song came on. Singing along, my dad announced “we’re here”. “Yay” ,we shouted.

 Checking our tickets, the lady standing there goes, “Are you Amiria’s brother ?” to my dad. All of a sudden my Aunty walks in. “Come on kids, we’re going up now” she said to us.

 Making our way to our seats, my dad was kind of annoyed because we were sitting in the same seats again. Watching the big screen, my dad gave us hot chocolates and wedges.

 Finally the game had started. Waiting for someone to get tackled, it felt like I was getting sweaty just by watching the game. This would have to be the only RUGBY game that I’m really into.

 As the Blues got closer to the try line, I desperately needed to go toilet. Running to the toilet, I tried not to miss too much of the action. As I walked through the doors, right in front of me was a tv. Even better, It was a flat screen tv. Or that’s what I thought.


 Sitting back down, I looked at the big screen and it was only 10 seconds left. “Come on blues you can do it get this is your chance!!!” my dad and I were shouting. Sadly they lost. Although the blues didn’t win, we still had a ton of fun.

Frogs

What are frogs? Well frogs are amphibians. If you don’t know what amphibians mean then let me explain it. Amphibians are animals that live on both land and water.

The life cycle of a frog goes a tadpole to a froglet then of course a frog. When they are born most frog parents leave their precious babies alone. Growing up as a frog is kind of scary because you never know when another will eat you. Luckily not all of them do that.

When frogs are little(tadpoles), they are herbivores. But, the unusual thing is when they grow up they are carnivores. I think the reason is because when they are little, of course they won’t be able to eat or swallow things bigger than themselves. Did you know that frogs use their eyes to help them swallow their food? Its weird but true.

Frogs don’t only breath through their nostrils but they also absorb half the air the body needs. The skin is also used to drain water into its skin to make sure the body doesn’t
dry out. Skin. The frog's skin(some of them) is useful for confusing predators and making it look like they’re not there.I wish we had skin like that so when we play hide and go seek they won’t find us.

Some frogs are poisonous. You can tell because they have an unusual coloured type of skin. As I said before these are the clever frogs that can sometimes be camouflaged. If you think about it, wouldn't the predator recognize because they can see their eyes. Anyway that's a pretty clever way to not getting eaten by your predator.

Different frog species make different sounds. Some of them croak, whistle, grunt, and some of them go ‘Ribbit Ribbit’. All in all, these are some very odd but interesting facts about one weird creature. The Frog.
