This is a cross section of a volcano. The aim was to create an information picture on volcanoes. We used Google draw to make it. We had to label the different parts of a volcano and write a definition so we know what it means.

The Mount Tongariro Eruption
People ran in shock as the fierce Mount Tongariro wakes up. He was blowing the air with ash. Several flights were delayed as Tongariro was burping boulders of fire.
Local’s could hear explosions everywhere. The eruption happened on the 21 of November in 2012 in the afternoon. Following the explosions a cloud of ash fell and covered the local town like it was a blanket.The agile red hot rocks did a reverse bungy.
When the mountain erupted people were running far away from the mountain. People were packing food while the mountain was erupting. The police started warning people that Tongariro was erupting.
The damage that was caused harmed houses, cars and even animals were covered with a thick layer of ash. Even the police couldn't get to all the civilians while running with fear. Mt Tongariro eruption has also caused significant damage to a nearby tramping hut.
They heard a loud sound that made the local’s scared coming from Tongariro. Local’s didn't care when the police gave the first warning. People ran out of their homes and saw an enormous cloud of ash.
It would take many days to clean up the mess made to peoples houses. The local’s are still waiting for the ash to disappear.

This is what Teagan and I made about the water cycle. There are four main words. They are evaporation, condensation, precipitation and accumulation. We had to get information from using the teachers information. We had dictator race to see who could copy the words from the sheet the fastest, our time was 18:48. Then we had to write our own words onto this poster. The water cycle never stops, it keeps going on and on.

Battle of the Mountains
Mt Tongariro is a courageous, sentimental and kingly mountain. He is very athletic and brassbound. He is friendly and agile. He is the strongest mountain out of Taranaki, Tauhara and Putauaki.
Mt Pihanga is a girl who is very protective and loving mountain. She is soft hearted and very sensitive. She is a very gentle mountain. She is Apprehensive and affable.
Mt Taranaki is a bad mannered, unfaithful mountain who is very jealous of Mt Tongariro. He is so anxious and aggressive. He can be competitive and very desperate. He is embarrassed because he challenged Tongariro for the hand of Pihanga and then he lost the fight.
Mt Tauhara is humiliated and chicken hearted. He is romantic and is double dealing. He is sneaky and weak. He was humiliated in-front of Pihanga by helping Taranaki and running away when Taranaki lost. Tauhara is the romantic mountain.
Mt Putauaki is the same as Tauhara except he’s not romantic. Putauaki and Tauhara are childhood friends and they have always been sneaky. Putauaki is devious and embarrassed.
