Activity 3: Let It Rain

When I opened the door I saw no grass and bare Trees. There was nothing to do. It was just bare
trees for miles. The acid rain had destroyed everything. I ran down to the trees, OUCH! I yelled
because there were some puddles of acid rain by the trees and I had stood in one. I walked around
the house to what used to be our garden. The sight was horrible there were holes in the trampoline,
the chains from the hanging baskets were the only good thing left. My family sadly walked to the
river and tried to test the water but it burned the container, it was acid. My friends walked down the
river edge to see me. They told me that all their gardens were ruined. Clara said her house had nearly
slid down the hill it was on.

Week 3: Day 2 The Air Up There

Activity 1: Bee Informed
The word ‘bumblebee’ is a compound word (bumble + bee). The word ‘bumble’ means to
Hum, Buzz or Drone.

Bumblebees can fly very quickly. They can reach ground speeds of 54 kilometres per hour (km/h).

Bumblebees are very strong! They carry up to 90 percent of their body weight in food with them to
avoid starvation.

Bumblebees can do more work and carry more pollen than other bees, including honeybees. In fact,
they can do up to 50 times as much work as a normal honeybee.

The number of bumblebees is declining in New Zealand due to a number of factors, including the
removal of wildflowers and flowering trees, habitat loss, and extensive use of pesticides.

might keep on overfishing and then there could be no fish left.
