I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury.

I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury
In this project I was working with Logan and we decided to create a water filter.

This is a video ;-)

This is our presentation
In this project we decided that our success criteria was It needed to be strong, to last, be portable and to produce clean water.

Overall our project meets this criteria because it was portable, strong, The water was clean-ish and it should last.

Merit cando #9

For pals I have been refereeing football for Kauri and Logan and I have been doing yr 4 and yr6 but the yr6s never show up and one day with the yr 4s. I showed integrity because I was unbiased and I was fair when something happened.

Merit Can do #10

Today for Gardening club we were pulling out weeds near the senior Playground. We were resilient because we were the only people outside because the weather was bad and we stayed out until Mr McAven told us to go inside because it was about to rain and hail. I was also trustworthy because I turned up on time ready to go.

Merit Must do - 4

On Tuesday on the way to tech I was being a role model to others because Mel and I were just talking to each other quietly and we used our manners getting on and off the bus.

My Water Cycle Info Report

The Water Cycle

The water cycle is an important process that all the water in the world goes through. There are different stages in the cycle and they are Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation, Runoff and Groundwater. Also the water changes state throughout the process. It goes from liquid to gas and then to solid and back again.


Evaporation is an invisible process that changes water into a gas; it’s when vapour is formed from the sun heating up the water. Then the The process is made faster on a hot day. The amount of vapour in the air is humidity. When the vapour floats up to the atmosphere It forms clouds which is called condensation.

Condensation/ Precipitation

Condensation is when clouds form. It happens when the temperature changes and the vapour forms clouds. Precipitation (water coming down to earth) is when the clouds build up and water comes out of them. The water come down to earth in different forms and they are rain, hail, sleet and snow. The precipitation causes water to come down and cause runoff.

Runoff/ Groundwater.

Runoff is basicly water coming downhill. The water can come down from the hills, go straight into bodies of water or soak into the ground. A Lot of our drinking water is underground in aquifers.

And then the water gets evaporated and it goes round the water cycle again and again.
