This term Kauri 3 are learning about Antarctica and Ecology. We started today by looking at ice and icebergs. What we knew and what we found out. Watch our ideas and please leave a comment.


  1. Wow! You guys are quick off the mark! You have already started experimenting and testing out your ideas, tino pai!
    Does anyone know how to find out how much of the earth's surface is covered with ice? I'd like to know.

  2. Kauri 3
    I am a teacher from Hamilton, I can't believe what amazing videos you have on your class page, I loved this Ice one, how you all made predictions and then carried out an experiment, really interesting and creative and loved the way it was all put together - Fantastic stuff! I see a lot of online work but absolutely astounded by how good your videos are, will show them to my class later this week.

  3. Great video, showing your ideas and predictions. I like the look of your presentation. I want to know how you worked out a tenth of your ice was showing above the water? Tricky maths!
    There is a great story in one of the connected journals which i love, called 'an interview with a glass of water' and it covers ice in that story. I can
    't remember which one, but should be easy enough to find via TKI. This glass of water talks about it's life, it is a fun story, but science at the same time.
    Great work guys,keep up you great science and ICT work.
