We have been finding out about different explorers and their discoveries. We were really interested to find out that people used to think that the world was flat. We liked the wonder http://wonderopolis.org/wonder/what-is-your-quest/ and we have been writing QUEST stories.
Wouldn’t it be great to be the first person to discover a new place? Where in the world would you like to explore and why?
If you are from a different country can you tell us about your place so we can decide if we would like to be an explorer there?

Welcome to the world of BLOGGING

Hi Grade Four

Welcome to our Class Blog.
On our blog you will be able to publish your own work as well as read and comment on work belonging to other people.  There will also be links for you to explore.  Even your parents will be able to read our class blog.  It will be exciting and a challenge as we learn about blogging together. It will be a great way for us to connect with each other and other people around Australia and the world.

Holidays I had a relaxing holiday and a highlight for me was going to the beach.  We went to the East Coast of Tasmania where the house we stayed at had a view of the beautiful blue water.   I took our two dogs Jock and Bessie.  They had a great time swimming and playing in the surf.  Aren’t they cute?

Please write back and tell me and the class a highlight from your holiday and where you were.  Ask the class a question at the end of your comment. Remember what we have learnt about quality comments.

Recently when I was in the USA I saw lots of skyscrapers, especially in New York.  Some of the buildings included The Empire State Building, The Flat Iron Building and the Rockefeller centre.  Living in a high rise is not something we have experienced in Tasmania.

When you look at the photos what do you notice about Skyscrapers?
Have you ever been in a skyscraper? Where was it and and what was it like?
What do you think of the art work the children have made based on the idea of the skyscraper?
What would it be like to live in a skyscraper?

Hi Mrs Rs Class
We are really enjoying blogging with you.  We thought it would be interesting to share some information with you about our animals, the  landscape and things we do on weekends. We will try and give you a bit of an idea of what it is like to live in Tasmania. 
These are some photos from different parts of our state.
