Where is Pyeongchang?

Today for Inquiry I made a DLO with Joel that was about Pyeongchang and the Winter Olympics. I have learnt that Passion. Connected. is the slogan for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. The countries that are near South Korea are: China, Thailand and Japan, and I know that Seoul is the capital of South Korea. We also learnt the distance from New Zealand (Auckland) and South Korea. My favourite fact that we found did was that Korean people eat a lot of kimchi each year. Did you know that kimchi is made from fermented cabbage? I don't know if I would like to eat that.

We had to make it on a spreed sheet and write the blog posts and the years to make the graph. The next step we had to do was make a DLO and put our graph on the DLO. The next step we had to write the learning intention. The second to last step we had to do was to write a reason why it is like that and say if you wanted to which one is higher than the others. We had to finish it off today because we never had that much time to finish it.

LI: Writing to Recount.
Writing using language features to engage readers.

I hear people jumping up and down.
I heard babies laughing loud.
I saw people swing up and down.
I felt like I ate too much food from playing.
I wondered if any time I was going to fall on the ground.
I wondered if people were jumping so high they were going to bread their bones.

Today for writing we had to write something about our holiday... but that gives clues in the writing. I have learnt how to do it a little bit faster because I was scared in the start but then people said go show but then I did so that is how I learnt something new. My one was about the play center that was on my sisters babies birthday which she turned 1...
