We watched a very short documentary about how land can change and move. I understand that erosion is when rocks brake up into small parts. When these broken rocks move this is called weathering. When the rocks move and find a new area its makes new land and this is called deposition. By Mitchell

Are there villains in nature? Well its a hard question to answer as we found out that even the nice birds and tree we have in New Zealand can some times hurt the land around us. It's part of a cycle and we are trying to understand this idea. But we all agree that the native birds and trees of our land are beautiful! Kiwi by Loimata, Tree and Kakapo by Zeb.
Our focus this term is looking at how humans and natural phenomena can change our land. But before we looked in depth at the big idea our class talked about trees and birds in New Zealand. We looked at native trees and birds. We used kidpix to draw our findings.
