Tonga

The counntry I chose to look at is Tonga. I chose Tonga because I know more about that country and I think it would be cool if I was the only one to do it because everyone else is choosing forien countries.

AUCKLAND'S NEW VOLCANO

WALT" Write an interesting and informative story about experiencing a fake Auckland  eruption.

I was outside gardening when I saw this very enormous black demonic cloud in the air,  down near the beach. I shouted to my family "come on we need to get out of here!" We got in the car and drove off, but as soon as we left I saw pyroclastic surge at the speed of lighting running across the beach coming on to land. My family thought that this was the worlds ending but I said no it's just the magma beneath the crust was melting the crust too much it caused it to burst out that's why this is happening. We got to the top of Mt wellington and watched as the pyroclastic surge cover the land like a black blanket . Time went past and the blanket started to fade, the land was covered in black ashes like a bunch of lice on a sofa. As we stood we saw a new island form not to far away from the beach but just enough for us to see. The new island was made of cooled lava and it was black. The city was ruined and as we stood from the moutain hearing a lot of sirens and a lot of crying.

THE JOURNEY!?

The main purpose of Nathan and Oscar’s trip was to find out where they are from,
visit the places where the ancestors once stood on .

Some of the interesting discoveries that they came across on their journey
were in Rarotonga they went to where the Takitimu stood before it took of to sea.
From my point of view i think that it was cool to learn about those islands but I
did wish that one of them were from Tonga.

Tectonic plates

WALT: Describe a recent earthquake, it's effects and cause

Today we did a group reading about the Christchurch earthquake and my group learnt that it was a 6.3 magnitude earthquake and 185 people died. Earthquakes are caused by tectonic plate movements. We used sandwiches to model the plates and we spreaded jam under the bread to model as the mantel. I learnt when the tectonic plates rub against each other it starts a earthquake and the mantel rise in between and forms a new rock.
