Activity 2.
Harmful chemicals that are used to kill weeds could accidentally get into your system which could either kill you or cause you to need urgent care.

Killing pests like possums could easily be killed safely without those boxes that attract them. Toddlers could think that they are playhouses but little do they know, it can kill them.

Bits of poison that are put in the garden to kill snails could be chewed by a baby. We all know that if this happens, it will end up faulty.
Today I have chosen these two activities to post on my blog. The reason I picked these two activities was it connected to my goals for this year. One of my goals is finding information and writing about it. Doing this can help me improve in writing. My first activity is an advertisement about why people should buy white fly traps. The other activity on the right is about the consequences of using harmful products to kill weeds or pests. I am trying hard to accelerate at my reading.

Harrison- Puzzle: Integers

WALHT: Get familiar with words associated with integers.

This puzzle helped to expand my vocabulary on integers. Some of the new weird words that I learnt were: absolute, inequality and operation. I really enjoyed doing this activity because it challenged me to think about word that could relate to the topic. I believe that this was a good use of my time as it helped to broaden my vocabulary.

Zain- Raksha Bandan; Brothers and Sisters Day

Last weekend it was Raksha Bandhan and it ended yesterday. Raksha Bandhan is a Indian event that happens once a year. If you are Indian and you have a sister they have to tie this onto his hand. The brother has to give a gift to the sister. I gave my sister a nail polish set because she likes putting on makeup and nail polish. If you have any close girl cousin then they can ty it to your hand too. One of the three was tied by my sister and the other two were tied by my 2 cousins Ashleen and Ashilta. Sisters also have to feed their brothers sweets. I was really excited to get fed the sweets!!
