The Victims or The Murderers

Their were once 3 little pigs living in a home where they had been found of murder of the
big bad wolf. The FBI agents surrounded the front door, smashing through the glass windows ,
busting the door open, aiming assault rifles directly at their heads .
They saw a pot of hot boiling water with some of the pigs specialty of spices with a wolf in it,
the pigs were taken to the nearby police station to investigate the crime scene.
Everyone knows the wolf surely wouldn’t blow the house down because he had asthma.

(if he had asthma then he couldn’t breath in to huff and puff and blow the house down).
But I think that the pigs would of got rid of him anyway because they want the protection of
getting eaten and the protection towards the house payments.
The pigs still needed to still pay some of the house bill. They say that the pigs should
be convicted murder only cause they killed a wolf, but what if their was a reason for killing
that wolf. :) 
I call these pigs innocent. Because the wolf may have been
faking the asthma just to save air to blow the house down and eat the pigs.

A special place in the community

A special place in the community.

Write to explain to your reader why this place is special.

Think about:
  • what your reader needs to know about the marae
  • how you are going to introduce the marae
  • the order of your ideas and how you link them.

A marae is a special place in the community because it's a place where you have
celebrations, to celebrate what you can do at a marae. Education, learning different
ways that moari learned back then where there was learning about moari language,
carving, and more. Also a marae is their for whanau connections where you connect with
your whanau, relations and your tupuna.

Whanau connections:
A marae is a special place in the community because you meet your relatives who you
haven't seen before. Also you go their to learn your whakapapa which is who are you
related to and who your ancestors and tupuna were. That's how you find out who you
really belong to and who your great great and so on grandparents are as well. 

A marae is a special place because you learn different and unique ways of doing things
that moari learned before. Such as, carving, arts, culture and our own language te reo
moari. You also learn about who created the marae and why your tupuna was crafted on
the outside of the marae. We also learn about our culture who are we as moari and how
is being maori significant to us. 

A marae is a special place in the community because it holds family celebrations.
We celebrate birthdays, family reunions and more at a marae. But we weren't aloud to
leave when a tangihanga was happening because that was disrespect to the whanau who
had lost their loved ones. 

In conclusion, A marae is a special place in the community because it brings everyone
together as a whanau and you can build up whanaungatanga around your tupuna that you
haven’t met before. A marae is a place where you learn about new, unique and totally
different ways of creating things, planning and all sorts that you can also do with your
relatives. A marae is also a place where you celebrate important events.
A marae is also built as a place for the homeless to stay incase they didn’t have a place
to stay.

MERGE CUBE !!!!!!!!!

This week I experienced a Merge Cube which is a foam cube that you can hold on the palm of your hand. It combines AR/VR simulations, and allows students to experience augmented reality first hand. 

By the way virtual reality and augmented reality are not the same because with (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer generating the object.

(VR) Virtual reality is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. #Dimensions
