This is my writing task for this week. I had wrote a information report. The information report was about Egypt. In this information report I have wrote about three subjects about it. The first one is the pyramids. The second one is about the pharaohs/rulers. Last one is about the other things they made. Have you ever been to Egypt? Have you seen pyramids? Would you go to Egypt? Anyway I hope you enjoy this information report and that you guys can learn something.
Did you know that the pyramids are home richest and most powerful civilization? They also get visited by millions of people. In this information report I will be explaining things about Egypt. I will be explaining the pyramids, the pharaohs/rulers and the other things they have built through the years.
First up the pyramids. The great pyramid of Giza is one of the seven wonders. It is also the only one that is still standing to this day. Another thing about the great pyramid of Giza is that it is the largest pyramid and it is also the tallest man made thing. Even though there is the great pyramid of Giza there are also some other pyramids as well. Well more than 100. Nowadays they are either small or very damaged. If you ever wondered how long it takes to make it then here is your answer. It is said to be 10 to 20 years. I mean makes sense because you have to have 2.3 million stones that weigh 25 to 80 metric tons. That’s only one stone.
Now onto pharaohs/rulers. Menes was one of Egypt's pharaohs. Well actually he was the first. There was also a pharaoh named Khufu. Khufu was an egyptian monarch. Who was the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty. Anyway Khufu actually got 2 temples to honor him. He also wanted to have a small temple for each of his wifes. By the way there were 3. Khufu's son and grandson built their own things as well. Did you know that they used to bury their pharaohs in the sand? Yes that is right. They would also bury their pharaohs with things that they valued. Those things sometimes included rings,coins and even jewelry.
Lastly we come up with other things they built. Something that is famous till this day is the great sphinx. If you haven’t seen a sphinx it is a statue the Egyptians made. It is the head of a man and the body of a lion. It is approximately 73 meters tall. Which doesn’t seem tall at first glance. Another thing is flat tombs or mustba. It all started 4000 half thousand years ago. They are pyramids, but they are flat instead of going up to the top. They also built a pyramid of mastaba. Which is now called a step pyramid.
That brings us to the end of the information report. To sum up everything that has been stated in the writing Egypt is full of cool things. From the rulers to the pyramids to even the great sphinx. Egypt has a history of many things. That is why to this day people go and come to see Egypt and learns it history.

Hi guys, so today at tech we did a very cool and interesting experiment. We also got to use some equipment that we had never used before. What we had to do was see the difference with hot and cold. We also got to used sugar as well. We had to see how long it would take for the sugar to dissolve in the different types of water temperature. My partner was Finau and we had so much fun. One thing I liked about was testing the new equipment. There are some pictures at the bottom on what were the things we used. I can't wait for next week to see what we do next. ENJOY!
Measure an exact amount of sugar and dissolve in water to make solution
A weighing machine
A petri dish
Two 200 ml beakers
Water in a pouring container
Check the temperature before testing it. Now see if your temperature went down. This is with the cold water. Then measured 10 grams of sugar. After that get your stopwatch. As soon as you add in the sugar then start your timer.Start stirring the sugar with the water with a spatula. Once the sugar has fully dissolved then you stop the stopwatch.Usually the time would take about 1:30 seconds or around that time.Now repeat the same things with the hot water.
Temp of the cold water:23
Temp of the hot water:77
Time taken to dissolve in cold water:1:38 sec
Time taken to dissolve in hot water:22 sec
This is my reading task for the week. It is about the Jacket. In this slide it has some question about the story. By the way this is a chapter book. I will be doing a lot of presentation about this book. The reason being is because there are 7 chapters. Anyway I hope that you guys enjoy this. Stay tune fore part 2 soon!
