My Chalk Obstacle Course.

       On Wednesday, 17, November my obstacle course was made with chalk and this was drawn on a footpath towards the bottom court of my school "St Patrick's School."The reason I did this was because it will help you be more confident in creativity. You should try it out yourself, It's fun.

Auckland's Volcanoes. | By Nino

                  Auckland's Volcanoes.

Rangitoto -The Volcano Rangitoto first erupted and first appeared about 600 years ago and is now considered inactive. It is still younger than the other active volcanoes which have been erupting a lot longer than Rangitoto has been around.

Magma and Lava - Lava is called magma when its below earth's surface, and when magma is outside the volcano its called lava.

Pumice - Pumice is a a volcanic rock, produced when lava with a very high content of water and gases is discharged from a volcano. As the gas bubbles escape, the lava becomes foamy. When this lava cools and hardens, the result ends up with a very light rock material with tiny bubbles with gas.

Obsidian - Obsidian, igneous rock occurring as a natural glass formed by rapid cooling of viscous lava from volcanoes. They were very useful for the early Maori used as knifes and tools. 

Volcano Extinction - Scientists can be confident if a volcano hasn't erupted for 10,000 years, it won't erupt again. 

Maungarei/ Mt Wellington - Maungarei has recently passed it's 10,000 year mark. It is now safer for people to explore. 

The next volcano eruption - Volcanologists tells us that the next erupted will happen soon, but they don't know where or when. Luckily we will get a warning! EQC and Emergency Services Civil Defence have more information on their websites.

Signs of a volcano erupting - A sign that a volcano might be erupting is when a earthquake happens, it happens when magma rise up and push the land apart so it can get through. It may cause earthquakes.

The Unique Axolotl.



Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) are gilled amphibians. They are unmetamorphosed larvae of the Mexican salamander. Axolotls have a cartilaginous skeleton that, even in larger, older axolotls, doesn't become completely calcified. Their muscles are similar to those of fish.

-Life Cycle

Their mothers lay multiple eggs at a time. It takes 15 days for them to hatch out of their eggs. 


They eat mollusks, worms, insects, larvae, crustaceans and some fish. Axolotls are predators.


Axolotl’s lifespan is only to up to 15 years. You can keep them as pets just don’t, put your finger in the aquarium because they might bite.

-Critically endangered

They are critically endangered because of the pollution in Mexico.


 They look like salamanders with antlers and pink. Maybe a frog + platypus + salamander


They live in the Lake Xochimilco in the Valley of Mexico, Since it’s polluted they have to move.
