Weekly blog - Article

This week I learned about things that have been going on around the world. Here is some information that I found out the 1st one was that a countdown security guard died because a teenage boy punched him in the head because the security guard was suspicious about his behavior. Another article I read was about a white kiwi that missed his birthday because he had an infection. Reading this about the world is really good so that you can be aware about the things that are going on and so that you can be prepared.

Hemisphere

Today we mad 3d shapes out of clay. The shapes me & my panther Atareita made were a cube , cylinder , pyramid and a hemisphere. These shapes will be permanent when they are dried out.  The shape I will be talking about is a hemisphere ( a half of the earth, usually as divided into northern and southern halves by the equator, or into western and eastern halves by an imaginary line passing through the poles.). This was a really easy shape to make because all you have to do is make a circle and then half it and then you have a hemisphere.
