Week 1
we learnt how to create a wiki, looked at a site called moodle. which took me a while to work out how to use everything.

Week 2

We had decided to do the animal welfare league, an thought up a few questions to ask one of the volunteers there. one of our group members had a family member that worked there and said that we had to be 18 to volunteer and they already had a lot of people coming in amd asking questions like we were.
We are using a method called DLSOPE
It stands for:

D: Defining

L: Locating
S: Selecting
O: Organising
P: Presenting
E: Evaluation

Week 3
Our first topic got knocked back so we wanted to stay on the animal topic an enquired about the Adelaide zoo but we decided that isn’t the path that we wanted to take. We were given an assignment sheet to see how we would be graded. we looked at google and learnt about a tool called the wonder wheel that narrows down our topic to very helpful sights.

There was a new website we looked at, it was very slow. We decided not to use it.

week 4
we had 3 options if we worked at either the mornato zoological park or adleaide zoo

1.With one or two keepers at Monarto Zoo

2.In 5 rounds at Adelaide Zoo (a different one each day)
3.In the Children’s Zoo at Adelaide Zoo
When people do work experience you observe the animals, preparing animals food and also cleaning.

Volunteers help the zoo by conducting group tours of both Adelaide and Monarto Zoos by providing helpful information to visitors, participating in ZOOWATCH programs and by assisting with promotional events and other zoo requirements.
Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends: to learn more about, and help the zoo and its animals.

Finally chosen our topic, we are researching Endangered Animals and we are now working on what we want to find out about the topic and what we want to do with it. We started to use "Wonder Wheel" on Google.com to look at the different things that came up within the topic, we looked at different animals and different wildlife services in place to protect the animals or keep their habitat.
Friday's lesson, started to look at just what endangered meant.


week 5
We learnt about the 5 whys, Been away most of the week
