We got a piece of paper to draw our idea. There were so many different pictures showing what we think a scientist looks like.
Can you spot the similarities and differences between some of our drawings?
After reading the story 'The Tree hut treaty' we looked at why it is important to have a treaty and what this might look like for our class.
There were some wonderful ideas shared by everyone. We narrowed our statements down to the 7 that we thought were the best for us.
- Celebrate success
- Be a bucket filler
- Agree to disagree sometimes
- Share and Care
- Show a positive attitude
- Treat each other like whanau
- Make good choices
When the treaty of Waitangi was signed, as well as the Tree hut Treaty, everyone signed their names. In our class, everyone has shown their agreement to the treaty, by designing a feather to attach to our korowai cloak.
We then used some plastic mesh to weave our paper through. We had to be very careful when we did this part because the paper could rip easily. Some people needed to be very reflective after their paper broke so that it wouldn't happen the next time they tried.
The next step got even harder. It was time to thread the pieces of straw onto the wool and tie off with a wooden bead.
We created different patterns from the colours and order we threaded the straws.
Here you can see us focussing a lot on threading our straws. It was also a nice time to talk to people in our class that we had not seen all holidays, or were new.
Some people showed a lot of perseverance when it got tough. There were also people who finished and were asking if anyone else needed help. Everyone was being a 'Bucket Filler'
