Bug Homes

In class we had to make a bug home.  We designed a bug home in our art book. I am going to use one of my Grandads old beehives. The next week we went to town and got some free wood from some builders and the recycling centre for other things.

Today I made my bug home with the help of Mr Palmer. I put leaves, bamboo, sticks and grass in it to attract good bugs. I will take it home and put it in my back yard.
Here is a photo of my finished bug home.

Head Phone Bag

How to make a head phone bag

What you need: A plan, fabric, scissors, sewing machine, needle

  • I had to design a plan for a bag to hold my headphones.
  • I measured my headphones so I got the correct size.
  • We then designed our names to go onto the bag.
  • I then carefully measured and cut it out to the shape.
  • I pinned my name onto the fabric I had cut.
  • I pinned the seams up and pinned velcro on the top.
  • Now you can sew it to gather with a sewing machine.
  • Here is my headphone bag.

Be Funky

I used the Be Funky app to create a version of me with different colours. I download the photo the teacher took of me from the website. I used this photo to create my own Andy Warhol style artwork. I uploaded the photo into the be funky website, changed the colours and effects. Save the photo. I needed to do this 4 times. Upload the photos into my blogger doc shared with you, making sure each photo fills the entire box.  I got my google drawing checked by a teacher. Once it had been checked I added it to my blog with an explanation.  I also needed to include 3 interesting facts about Andy Warhol, I needed to blog to find more information about him. He was born as Andrew Warhola August 1928, his parents were Julie and Ondrej who immigrated from Slovakia. Andy made a magazine book.

Birth Date‎: ‎August 6‎, ‎1928

Chunky Chalk

Chunky Chalk

Mrs Palmer read a book to the class. It was about how to make chalk. Went followed the instructions and made chalk with a buddy. I loved putting the dye in to change the colour to blue.


What will happen when we mix Plaster of Paris with water?
MaterialsPlaster of Paris, water, bowl, spoon, measuring cups, 2 plastic bags.
MethodIn a bowl tip 2 cups of Plaster of Paris and ¾ cup of water.Add some dye to colour it.Stir the mixture until there is are no lumps and it is smooth.Divide the mixture in half. Put half in one plastic bag and the other half in the other plastic bag.Take all the air out of the bag and seal it up.Put the bag on the bench and after an hour make an observation.Leave there for at least 24 hours.
Open the bag and see what you can do with it.


After an hour we picked up the plastic bag and it felt warm and was starting to go hard.

The next day it was very hard and had formed into a shape.ResultsGypsum (calcium sulfate) is one of the ingredients of Plaster of Paris. Gypsum is found as a mineral rock. The calcium sulfate is bound together by water which keeps it in its solid form. When gypsum is heated gently water is lost and the crystals become white powder. When we add water to this powder, the water recombines with the gypsum. As this happens the mixture gets hot (an exothermic chemical reaction occurs) and forms a paste which then sets hard.
