Kakepuku class tasks....

Kakepuku Catastrophe! Activities and due dates

[please note - i expect you to look up any words you do not understand. Room5ians work hard on developing their vocabulary so they can communicate effectively.]

Activity 1: Survival skills

§ Compile a list of survival strategies or skills – write it in your topic book. There are at least four important things to know about…
Write down the title and author of any books you used or the url of any website.

Due Tuesday 3pm 20th Feb.

Activity 2: Mythological creatures

§ Research mythical creatures and describe in your own words several that interest you. Do at least three. Include one that can fly and one that lives in the ocean as this may help you when disaster strikes on Kakepuku. Include images for extra credit. Write the info in your writing book.
Due Friday 23rd Feb. 3pm

§ Research taniwha and manaia – Maori mythological creatures – draw and describe one in your topic book. Write down the Title and author of any books you used or the url of any website. Include images for extra credit.
Due Wednesday 28th Feb. 3pm

§ Create a poster, A4 size, with a border, using colour, including a title. Design your own mythical creature. This should have features that could be useful in assisting you in your plight on Kakepuku. Draw the creature. Name it. Write a brief description of it, its attributes and abilities.
Due Friday 2nd March 3pm [is this a real date? I should check my calendar...]

Activity 3: Creative writing

§ Write the introductory description of the disaster on Kakepuku in your topic or writing book.
Due Friday 16th Feb. 12:30pm

§ Daily diary writing describing the activities of your group, written from your point of view.
o Entries need to be well written, using emotive and descriptive language. Correct punctuation and spelling must be used. Use paragraphing accurately.
o The entries do not need to be very long. Between half a page to a page. Include what happens to you and your group, how you feel and how you cope with daily survival needs must be included. Describe your surroundings.
This will be drafted and either completed in class or to be completed for homework several days each week until the adventure ends later in term one.
For extra credit, post your diary entries on your blog.

Activity 4: magic staff

§ Find a suitable stick to make a wand or staff out of. Gather resources to decorate it. Bring this all to school to work on.
Be prepared to design a staff that suits a specific purpose – e.g. if you want to have the power of fire design symbols and attach materials that make you think of fire. If you want to control birds, have feathers. If you want to see into the future, add a crystal ball…
Due anytime week 5

Mr Woody said...

it's not really that much work and it is spread out over several weeks. you will be doing it at school so make sure you bring the resources you need. there will be some books about mythological creatures and printouts about survival skills in class as well as pva glue for sticking things to your staffs or wands.
