Democracy In New Zealand

For the last activity for our Elections task I created a DLO on Democracy in New Zealand. In my DLO I have made a flow chart. I have included the definition of Democracy and the site I got the definition from. I also included what "Demo" means and "Cracy" means. I learnt that Democracy is originated in Greece. 

Election - Helen Clark

For our second Election activity we had to research a Prime Minister from the Past. I did Helen Clark. I learnt that Helen Clark was New Zealand's fifth longest-serving Prime Minister. I think Helen Clark has the a splendid and proud leader because she was the first Labour Leader to win three consecutive elections. The DLO above shows you a profile of Helen Clark and how she changed New Zealand. 

Election - Jigsaw

For the election that is happening now every intermediate students are studying about election and what happens in a election. We have learnt all the parties that is entered in the election . In LS2 we have been working collaboratively on a activity called Election Jigsaw. We had to name all the political parties and name the leader, the electorate (what place they are representing), a picture of them and the picture of the party logo. For example Nationals leader is Bill English his electorate is Cultha-South land. LS2 have found out that the two main parties are Labour and National.

Learning to use synonyms

Today for writing we were focusing on synonyms. A synonym is a word that means exactly the same as another word for example It was so hot outside. Another word for hot could be boiling. Above shows the DLO Freeman and I have made about Synonyms. It shows you powerful words Freeman and I have used. I learnt that another word for funny is bizarre. It was a bit hard because there were a lot of synonyms for us to chose from.
