During reading time today in Pūkeko 16, one group read a book all about turtles and tortoises. Before reading we thought about what we thought the differences between them were.
Turtles - laid eggs, lived at the beach, had a shell
Tortoises - laid eggs, lived in rocks at the river, had a shell
After we read we learnt they were very different. Here is a short video about some of those differences:
tortoise - they have a higher shell. They have stumpy legs and they live on land.

This is a turtle - they have flat shells, live in the water and have flippers to help swim in the water.

We had so much fun making goop! We had plenty to write about afterwards!
The goop was disgusting. It felt hard but when I squeezed it, the goop gets all runny and it runs all down your fingers.
The goop was slimy. It also looked like a volcano! When you squeeze it its very runny and when it dries it feels weird.
On Wednesday we made gooey goopy slime. It was amazing.
