Fun times at Arataki

Fun times at Arataki

THUMP. The bus came soaring over a bump. I turned to my buddy Theoden and what do you know he is a sleep. I was thinking in my head how is he asleep we have been going over bumps for ages, I tried to wake him but it didn't work.

We were on our school trip to Arataki with Rooms 7 & 6 to inspect the corry diabac virus and insect bugs and their surroundings.

When we got there we saw Miss Bess or Ranger Virginia as she called herself now. She gave us work to do which we took around the bush. At the start of the bush trail there was a scrubber to help stop the disease called Kauri dieback. Me and my mum’s group all scrubbed our feet.

After we scrubbed our feet went started our hike around the loop track. We saw that this part of the bush used to be a potato farm. I was amazed and I bet everyone else was as well. “Wait a second guys,” I said as I hear a sound is that a cicada. I followed the sound and it was there with a bunch of different bugs.

We went across the nature ID track we saw so many names of the tree’s that by the end we knew all of their names. And then we stopped talking for a minute and heard kids talking and birds chirping.

The next thing we did is we went into a workshop about bugs and how they help nature recycle. Ranger Virginia  told us that leaves make their food by a process called photosynthesis. This is when a leaf uses CO2 and H2O to make O2 and sugar (food) for the tree. Once the leaf is finished it falls off and becomes food for the bugs. They eat it or chew, chew, poo, poo as Ranger Virginia explained. What comes out is part of the soil that we stand on and has nutrients for plants in it.

All too soon our amazing adventure had finished and it was time to go back to school.arataki is a great place of adventure so maybe you should go there.

bug report (worms)

Image result for annelids cartoon  report about worms

Have you ever looked closely at the ground you are walking on? If you did you would see an ananild. What is this you might ask? A worm. I think they are fascinating and so did Charles darwin. He studied all kind of worms for 39 years.

Worms are easy to find. They look like pink pieces of rope (small rope), Gummy worms or a tongue. Worms are only found underground, in fruit and vegetables and under an object.

How many species of worms are there? There are 1,000,000 species of worms and still many to be discovered. There are 2,700 different earthworms.

Baby worms are not born they hatch from cocoons. By the way the worm cocoons are no bigger than a grain of rice.

hope you like my bug report

the brain

the deference between a bee and a wasp

While honey bees can attack when provoked, wasps are naturally and more aggressive predators.

Identifying the difference between honey bees and wasps is important in order to administer proper treatment of wounds and appropriate pest control.

Honey bees are hairy, while wasps usually have smooth  and shiny skin.

Bee hives attacked by wasps. Early in the year wasps collect meat and carrion, including dead bees, which they masticate and pass on to feed their larvae in the nest.

The protein helps the new bodies grow and the larvae in turn excrete a sugary honeydew which satisfies the wasp's sweet tooth.
