How have you used creativity this semester?

I have used creativity this semester by working hard and thinking real well. I’m even more creative when i’m in a group with smart people. I can be more creative when i am working with out distraction and people aren’t mucking around and not doing anything (which is me…. sometimes)

when have you used your critical thinking skills?

The times i will use my critical thinking is when im working pretty hard and thinking well, but if i’m a group full of my friends, there is no chance of me using my critical thinking skills, because we will all be distracted easily,

  1. Why are kangaroos a problem at the Sandy Creek Conservation Park?

    You see out beloved national emblem can be a bit of a pest in some areas. Here at Sandy Creek Conservation Park kangaroos are over grazing which means they’re eating too much. That’s a problem because a lot of these plants provide homes and food for other animals and if they’re all eaten they might not grow back. It’s something ecologist David Paton and his team have been monitoring. 15 years ago, they fenced off an area to keep out the roos. Today the plants here are thriving.How long has ecologist David Paton been monitoring the fenced-off area?

  2. David Paton had fenced off the area for 15 years straight.

    What does he think should happen?

  3. David says something needs to be done now to control the kangaroo population and protect the ecosystem in this area. While it might sound pretty extreme, he says the best solution would be to kill some of the kangaroos.What does it mean to `cull’?

    The meaning of Cull is “reduce the population of (a wild animal) by selective slaughter”




Next week for investigation I’m thinking I would wanna do slime, because I really would love to make slime, because I see a lot of people play with slime and I ask if I can play with some but they say no so I thats why I would love to make slime.


To make da slime you’ll need:

glue (about ¼ of the glue bottle) and ¼ cup water. If you want colored slime, add food coloring to the glue and water mixture. Lift some of the solution out of the container with the stir stick and note what happens. Add ¼ cup of Sodium Tetraborate (Borax) Solution to the glue and water mixture and stir slowly.
