Yesterday I had athletics it was awesome because I participated in everything. I learned that I can jump up to 1.17 meters in high jump. The part that I enjoyed was long jump because I came 4th, The easy part for me was sprints because I came a place. The hard part was helping others try there best. I was also learning how to be supportive and being resilient.
Here are some photos we took yesterday.

Hanga Waka

Last Friday we tested our boats to see how many coins it could carry, The coins were real to. The real easy part was putting it altogether to see if it would float, the hard part was to make my boat out of only two things.  I used tin-foil and straws also masking tape. The boat was fantastic and it was awesome.

Floating and Sinking

We have did a test on our boats and it was about density, density is when there is weight on something that is floating. When we did our first test all of our boats were buoyant because there was no weight on it. 

Paying it forward

If I had the chance to travel back into the 1930's I would take blanket so they can stay warm, I would also take some food and other materials so that everyone there wouldn't be hungry and starve. I would take some chocolates back so that everyone who was there can have something in return from as. Overall if I could travel back in time I would take all those things back into the mid-1930's.
