My class and I make green plain play dough

My class and I decided to make green play dough for St Patrick’s Day.

Our teacher showed us the ingredients and the method. First we had to get into five groups because there are only five containers. Once we get into five groups two students came with their container to the teacher. After we had all of the ingredients we use a blunt knife to mix it all together (the blunt knife isn’t that sharp).

Once the play dough had cooled down  we used a glove to keep mixing it until it wasn’t sticky.

We put the play dough on the table and rolled the green play dough to form a long spiral. Then we played a race using a foam ball and a straw that we blew into to move the ball. It was a lot of fun but when we got bored we made a bridge and a ramp for the ball to under and up.      

Soon the teacher told us to put the play dough into a airtight container so it wouldn’t go too moldy.

It was a lot of fun.

The stories of the mysterious stones of Tonga

It is still a mystery as to where the Ha' among'a stones of Tonga came from.
I have created a slide show so you can see how they think the structure was built.

This is a list of ideas about the argument for and against zoos. Should we have them, or not?
