matariki chart

arguments
Today we surveyed 24 maori students. 18 maori
students said that they do not celebrate matariki at
their home. Out off 24 maori students only 1 maori
student said they go outside to see the matariki
stars and eat marshmallows.

3 maori students said they eat dinner or BBQ with
their friends and family. This shows us that our
festival is dying and not that maori students are
celebrating matariki.

them an new year is coming for maori new year. The
maori new year is when all off the families go fishing
too get kai and gather around for matariki new year.

The Sun

The sun
At the centre of the solar system. There is a burning
ball off gas called the sun. It has two main gases
called hydrogen and helium. Helium atoms can
attract together to produce heat, light, and radiation.
The sun has tremendous gravitational pull holding
all the planets instead of them drifting to space. The
sun is actually a star just very very closer to the
earth. The heat and the light produces from the
helium atoms it is important for us to survive on
earth. Without the sun there would be no heat,
no light, and plants could not grow and everything
would Freeze.

stardome

Trip too Stardome
At stardome we were learning about space that
we've done at school. First we went in too the
space room. There was an man that showed how
our sun and our moon works. So some people say
that the moon is what makes the earth dark but it
is the shade what makes it dark cause the earth
rotates around the sun and it spins too. A if it spins
and new zealand is on the shade that is why it is
dark. The moon is little when you see it on earth.
It looks so close but it is just really far away.
Sometimes the moon can be a crescent, half, or full.
How that works is that the moon also orbits around
the sun but fast. The moon is the littles it spins
around the earth fast as. And that's why it looks
different cause some off it is shady and some bright.
