Why i think World War 2 has had the most affect on NZ

Death, Hitler, Nazis, Tanks and Bombs what do these things have in common? 
They're all in World War 2.
World War 2 has had the most effect on NZ.
It is the most gruesome  war of all time. 
It has had the most deaths of all the wars.
The war effected the economy greatly the weapons jobs etc.
The environment and rationing the pollution and smoke.
The mood of people left behind scared, worried, sad. 

There was a total of 63,185,000
people killed in World War 2 as in World War 1 
There was only 5,142,631 deaths 
a lot of the bodys couldn't be identified because the flame throwers and 
bombs would of disfigured them.

 Environment And Resources  
There were a lot more Tanks and Flame Throwers to pollute the air.
Because of petrol shortages people converted cars to use coal as fuel.
Then the coals smoke polluted the air.
Everybody was rationing food because there wasn't enough to go around 
it was hard for people to make nutritious meal 
so it was easier for children and elderly to get sick and 
it was harder for them to recover.

 there wasn't many jobs after the war.
They had to spent more money on WW2 then WW1 because there was more troops.

worried or scared if there son husband of friend went to war
or sad if they died in the war. They were tired because most women had to do 2 jobs.

In conclusion World War 2 has had the most effect on NZ even today.

Uneasy is millions of tons of plastic being made.
Letdown is animals making homes is plastic.
Dishonored is a bag of sand from Hawaii being contaminated with more than 90% plastic.

 Antarctica is the south pole not many animals live there because it is to cold for some animals to live there.


There are many Carnivores in Antarctica eg Killer Whales, Emperor Penguins, Leopard Seals and more
If Carnivores disappeared  Herbivores  and Omnivores would flourish and eat all the producers consequently there would be no food for Scavengers .Carnivores help the producers by keeping the population of herbivores and Omnivores down.


Some Herbivores are eg Krill,Fish and more . If the Herbivores disappeared Producers would multiply and there wouldn't b as much food for Carnivores and Scavengers  Herbivores keep the population of producers down so they don't thrive.


Some Producers are Licher, Algae and more. If Producers disappeared there wouldn't be any food for Herbivores so they would die then there wouldn't be as much food for Carnivores  and not as much food for Omnivores but more food for Scavengers .


Most Scavengers in Antarctica are birds eg Skuas, Bull Mut, Sheet and more. If Scavengers disappeared there would be dead animals all over the ground and the other animals would get sick and die. Scavengers stop the other from getting sick by eating the dead animals  


Some Omnivores are Phytoplankton, Mutts and more If Omnivores disappeared there would be less food for Carnivores and Scavengers also they provide food for Carnivores and keep the population of producers down 

 Omnivores, Herbivores, Producers, Scavengers and Carnivores playa big role in Antarctica.

I think I'm relational because i can explain what would happen if a food chain group wen't missing 

My Maths

Im relational because i can use the strategy to get the correct answers.

The Huntsman Spider

                               The Huntsman Spider

Huntsman Spiders scientific name is sparassidae
and the Arachnid class.
There's 1009 type's of Huntsman Spider's 
and 94 are in New Zealand.


The Huntsman Spider doesn't 
have a specific area, it has 
a wandering habitat 
Also it can be found in car's and house's. 


The Huntsman Spider run's down it's prey
The Huntsman does this because it's
a really fast runner in addition
Huntsman Spider's have venom 
they use to immobilise prey but aren't
dangerous to healthy  human's further more
Huntsman Spider's can go long periods' 
without food , if bitten it will cause a bit of pain
and some swelling.    


 Huntsman Spider's protect them self by
immobilising predator's by bitting them.
When Huntsman Spider's bite the predator 
they inject Poison into them which immobilise's 

In conclusion Huntsman Spider's have adapted to their enviroment
to be a hunter due to it's long leg's and visou's personality.

   By Oliver

I am Extended Abstract because vi can summarise how it's physical characteristics are adapted for it's habitat.

conflict plan kindle

We got given ''Conflict Plan" for our integrated studies.

Our group, had come up with a solution... Our idea is to make stamps to solve the problem of students
doing Conflict at school, Swearing, bullying and fighting.

We came up with designs of stamps C.A.R.E (3D looking) for the students so they can get care ticks for their Bronze, Silver, then gold. We contacted the Monatarga Stamp Shop to summarise whats the price of the stamps and the price of  the ink pads. Then we are going to do a Propasal to Mrs. Gatherer. because that's our solution of our problem we solved.

This is Relational because we explained why and explained what we did in integrated studies.

why  it's an inference.
