Bioblitz 2017

A group of us were very fortunate to be invited over to Koraunui School's Bioblitz today. What an amazing time we had - checking out bees in the "Lab in a box" identifying plants and insects over at the Horoeka reserve and then over to the community hub for all sorts of things! All the while being transported around on a fancy-decorated bus!

Many thanks to Di Christenson and her team for inviting us! (Click on photo to see more)

Trip to Johnsonville School

We were very fortunate to visit Johnsonvills School and see what their enviroschool looks like. While we were there we found out about animal trackers and what plants like what.





Many thanks to all the parents who helped transport us to and from there.

Sunflowers!

Our beautiful sunflowers that we planted last November have finished. What a lovely display they were!
Today we collected up all the seeds - and quickly found that we were dealing with very large numbers!

We counted approximately 250 seeds into a small plastic cup and weighed it. We then weighed all the seeds we had collected - that was 500g. We worked out that 41 little cups could weigh the same as the large bowl of seeds. We then did some multiplying and worked out that 41 times 250 (seeds) was 10250! That's a lot of seeds!!
