Then we had morning tea on the wharf. Nobody was allowed five planks away from the edge because Allanah was scared that we were going to fall in.
After we had walked along Grossi Point we went to the aquarium to look at the sea animals and learn about the sea and other stuff.
We loved looking at the stingray coming up.
The tide was a long way out when we got to the Rocky Shore.
The first thing that we did when we got to the rocky shore was have our lunch.
Can you see what Tarn has got in his viewer?
It really was a stunning day.
We found lots of interesting creatures living between the tides.
We all worked together to carefully lift rocks so we didn't disturb the creatures too much.
We did population counts of the creatures we found at low tide, mid tide and high tide. When we got back to school we made a spreadsheet of our results in Google Docs. We could all edit it at the same time. WOW!
Richard told us an interesting story of what the Maori used this creature for.
Richard tells the story in this video.
Then we played Survivors of the Rocky Shore. That is an excellent resource that Richard had made himself. We will be able to play it back at school.
Thanks everybody for a great day out.
