My Writing, Comparing and contrasting

What is up,
So today I will be sharing my comparing and contrasting. The two animals I picked are a Cougar and Lioness.
I am sharing this with you because I did to my personal best. I am proud of this because it  I enjoyed searching up facts and putting them into a essay.

Here is my writing

  • Revised and edited
  • Accurate paragraphs with subheadings
  • Essay structure followed
  • No personal pronouns

Comparing Cougar and Lioness

In some ways Cougar and Lioness are very similar, but   they are still different to one another.  You may think that they are very similar but in fact they have there own unique qualities.


The Cougar and a Lioness are very similar. They both kill large herbivores and digest meat. ( eats meat) They eat deer and other kinds of animals. They both hunt in groups but the lioness hunt in larger groups. Alos they hunt the same way by  locking their jaws around the necks of their prey and claws and they both put them in a death lock.

Not only that, they are very similar to one another in other ways too. Here Is one fact: they have the same fur colour. The colour’s name is sandy brown. They don’t have hair like humans, they have fur.

Both Cat’s give birth to their young, and there cub’s feed from their  mother's milk. These Cat’s normally give birth up to four cubs. Both cat’s give birth to their young around the same age.


This animal  lives in the savannah, in prides. There is a larger group of females in the pride. But not only that this animal is very Iconic of all the cats in it’s pride. This animal is jungle royalty to the jungle animals. Hunting, this is what is the weird part  because the females are the ones that go hunting while the male lions look after the cubs.
They can come into heat at any time in the day. When they are going to have birth they move away from the pride and then give. They go back to the pride after 4 days that the cubs or cub has been born.

This animal is also known as a mountain lion, Puma and Cougar. The Cougar is found mostly in the american habitat, Here is one interesting fact is that a Cougar Has the loudest purr. Hiking they hike in small  groups in hunting. Also these animals are  very energetic because they can leap up to  up to 30 feet.

This cat is the second largest cat after the tiger there weight is up to 70 and 150 pounds.
And the cougar height is up to 60-90cm up to shoulder for a adult. The female length of 2 meters and a male is up to 2.4 meters.


A cougar and a Lioness are very similar but not Identical.

My art work

What's up guys,?
So today this post is going to be about one of my favorite subjects  ART (yay!). So since you know what I am showing  you today, I am going to talk a bit about it. In class we had to pick which art skill you are kinda not good at it so I picked sketching. When we got to do sketching we started off using different angles on your pencil in the box to learn to shade. The next's day we got to really sketch. We had to do a practice and then our real art.

I am proud of this because I worked really hard on it And I enjoyed doing  it.

I am sharing this to you because it was fun and not becasue I had to.

Here is my masterpiece.

Project based Learning

Hi guys,
For my blog post for today I will be showing you my PBL sort for Project base Learning.
For my project I was doing it about the women's rugby 7's team I did a interview  with other people of them acting as people in the team.
Sean Horan the coach was Rory/Cameron
Sarah Goss was Deagan
Ruby Tui was Mich
Poach woodfoud as Amos

Here is my Interview

Here is my description video

Here is my PBL reflection
Project Topic: Women's Rugby 7’s team

Photo/Screenshot of Project (insert below)

Screenshot 2016-09-16 at 1.40.43 PM.png

Finish these starters:
  • Something I enjoyed about my project was writing down my script and filming it           because I really enjoyed it

  • The most challenging thing about my project was Finding people that would be in my script, because I needed people that fitted the part

  • The main skill I got better at was putting the script together I got better at it by Trying hard and it is one of my best script.

  • Something interesting I learnt was that Sarah Goss was my cousin                         

  • What I would most like to change about my project is having more time to make a model because I haven't done that before in my projects

  • I would like to do my next PBL about Models

Choose three learning muscles and explain how you used them during your PBL.
Absorption - when I was filming I was really absorbed because I was really concentrating to get the task done

Manage distractions - when we were filming the boys were being silly but I ignored it and got it done

Revising - when I was reading my script I noticed It did not make sense so I fixed it up

Create a Description of Your Project
At the beginning of my project I was going to be doing a model when it got closer to the end I ended up doing a interview. Because there would not be able to get it done but it went for a longer period of time.
My Description video

This is my Video about the women’s rugby team that went to the olympics. I interview the coach and some of the players. They will get asked questions and they will answer. I had to find out facts about the women's Rugby 7’s.

  • Use a range of verbs to explain what is happening

Black is the Colour of…….

  • A wicked witch zooming dangerously from castle to castle in search of potions
  • A lazy cat waiting patiently by the roaring fire for its night-time feed
  • A  majestic panther stalking its prey tactfully through the dense forest
  • A piece of licorice inviting me to sneak it from the brightly coloured box

Red is the colour of ……..

Purple  is the colour ……

  • Juicy Grapes growing gracefully  
  • Flash Purple shoes flashing brightly past my face
  • As the Purple crystals sparkling in my hand quickly
  • As the egg plant slowly moves into my mouth  the flavor collides with my mouth
  • As my purple head band smooths my hair out so I can see, It stays on firmly
  • As the purple nail polish make it ways slowly to my nails

My favorite part of my holidays is going to Elsthorpe to see all my family. I saw aunts, uncles and cousins. I spent the night at Saph's (My cousins) house. The next morning we went to my aunty Horoure's house to have breakfast. We had lamb tails. If you did not want to have lamb tails, you could have bacon and scrambled eggs. I shared a lamb tail with my sister, then ate some scrambled eggs and bacon (mmm).

I got a brand new scooter for my birthday. I have a blue and gold scooter from Hustle.
Also  in the holidays  I went to the skate park to ride on it. Bailee my sister is getting a new scooter from Hustle as well. I enjoyed going to the stake park. I learnt how to do a lot of things and I saw Mrs Love and Jono there too.

I had done things that were awesome in the holidays and meet some new family members that I did not know about. I had a awesome time in the holiday and I hope you guys did. Thanks for reading my  blog post scroll down to see more of my posts.

In the long period of time, it was really fun to do.  I  was sewing a blanket. I enjoyed doing things I have not done before. It was fun using the sewing machine. My teacher I did it with was Mrs Carr. She knew a lot about the sewing machine and about sewing as well . When I was stuck she helped me. Unfortunately I did not get my blanket finished because some times I was not there, I was probably busy with sports. I am going to finish it off at my Nan's.
Thanks please scroll down to see what I have done

These are my steps for my passion project It took a long time to get my steps done.

What do I need to get started?
