PBL model


This model is a volcano (just incase you did not know) we had to do it for our PBL and the thing I found difficult about it was probably doing it without chicken wire. What learning muscles did I use I mostly used perseverance absorption  and collaboration. The volcano type is a stratovolcano. By the way me Maaki worked together on this

Introduction

Do you know what the types of volcanoes there are? There are three types of volcanoes active is where it blows up dormant means it is basically asleep extinct means it is completely dead and it won’t blow it’s top again.                



How do volcanoes form?

Volcanoes form when they erupt erupt and erupt then it will get bigger by the time but it will slowly turn extinct because it can not be alive all or pumice then when it rains then their might be some soil then trees can grow. That is also how some islands form with volcanoes on top because underwater volcanoes erupt which cools down and creates obsidian or stone.



Volcanic rocks   

Obsidian
Obsidian (tūhua) is a naturally occurring volcanic glass            
formed as an extrusive igneous rock. It is produced
when felsic lava extruded from a volcano (puia) cools
rapidly with minimal  crystal growth. It is was also used
for tools in the stone age because of its sharpness and durability. Do you know that if you leave obsidian for a
amount of time it will go cloudy.


Sulphur
Pure Sulphur is bright yellow. The color may be altered if impurities are present. Clay and selenium impurities, as well as volcanic mixtures in sulphur can cause it to be slightly red, green, brown, or gray. sulphur (Whānāriki) often occurs in petroleum deposits, where it is found coated with greasy black petroleum.


Basalt
Basalt is a dark-colored, fine-grained, igneous rock composed mainly of plagioclase and pyroxene minerals. It most commonly forms as an extrusive rock, such as a lava flow, but can also form in small intrusive bodies, such as an igneous dike or a thin sill. It has a composition similar to gabbro. But gabbro is not a volcanic rock but it is a igneous rock.


Pumice
Pumice is used for cleaning and it also can be used to smoothen out something like for e.g skin leather etc. Pumice is like a white rock that is created with like a gas-rich it is also very light that is why it floats on water and you can find it in the ocean anywhere it is igneous rock and it is one of a lot of volcanic rocks.


Volcanic minerals
That is, if you combine it with knowledge of mineral deposits and global economic factors. Volcanoes directly or indirectly produce or host deposits of aluminum, diamonds, gold, nickel, lead, zinc and copper.
Diamond
Diamond is the toughest mineral and gem in the whole entire world it’s toughness is 10 unlike ruby and sapphire there toughness is only 9 people use it as jewelry and for machines cars and all sorts of stuff and it is apart of the carbon family diamonds are at least 1 billion years old or maybe older. It is brought out of volcanoes or you mine very deep and you’ll probably find it but it is rare.    
Gold
Gold is a valuable mineral it is used for jewelry wires and etc. It is less rare than diamond because there’s more of it. It is a beautiful bright yellow metallic color it is not like iron it is much brighter and it shines so bright that you can see it from far away. Gold is shiny and is not a gem because it is not transparent. It is a rock and a mineral. Most gold is locked away in our banks.
Aluminum
Aluminum ore, called bauxite, is most commonly formed in deeply weathered rocks. In some locations, deeply weather volcanic rocks, usually basalt, from bauxite deposits. This sample of bauxite ore is from Western Australia. Aluminum has a wide range of common uses. It is lightweight, strong and conducts heat well. Many kitchen items like pots and pans, foil, dishes are made of aluminum. Most materials used for transportation use large amounts of aluminum: cars, trucks, boats, aircraft, and aircraft engines. Road signs and high-voltage power lines are also made mostly of aluminum.
Copper
This metal likes electricity and hates germs doctors use this metal to like keep bacteria and all sorts of yucky stuff that is related to germs, people used it for weapons in the stone age the used copper for weapons arrow tips blades all kinds of tools now it is used for jewelry (I think) copper is a metallic brown really good and it is very shiny like gold and platinum it’s just that it has a different color.   
Nickel                                                                                                                             

Nickel is a type of volcanic mineral which looks like silver with a slight tingle of gold color. Nickel is a very useful mineral it is used for medical stuff mobile phones  it is also used for  magnetic and electronic things. Nickel is 9%-12% steel nickel based alloys is stainless steel.


What impact do volcanoes have on the world we live in.      

Positive
Negative
Horticulture
Metals
Heating
Stones/Rocks
Farming     
Destruction
Lahars
Lava
Gases
Ash
Damage
Pollution
Harmful

The impacts of a volcanoes can either be positive or negative like volcanoes can be good for all sorts of things but can also be also bad like volcanoes produce fertile which is good for farming and horticulture it can also produce metals stone and rocks. It can also be used for heating. Like most people assume it is totally destructive and spreads pollution in the air causing it to be harmful.

My special place



                      My special place


  • Hydra slide
  • Spa
  • Deep pool
  • A random pool
  
   
  
The hydra slide is a big slide there are two types of speed levels slow & fast it is 80+ meters high. We have to climb up some stairs slippery stairs all of us ran up it.Me and my friend Sam went down the fast slide we were screaming our lungs out of our chests soon we ran out of breath and It was over.I was as scared as a rat being chased by a cat.


The spa was ticklish when you hope in for the first time it is a really small pool like really only 5 people, 2 adults can fit.That sounds very small and it is I was squished like a pancake. I did not like the spa because it was hard to breath I was mostly underwater the whole time I had to burge everybody out of the way just to breath.I just wanted to relax in the spa well everyone was just bugreing.  


The deep pool was 2.4 meters deep I couldn't even touch the bottom of the pool (Lol that is pretty deep.) I was so terrified that I thought I would drown like  thank god that I was holding onto the edge of the pool. I let go of the edge and I started to float like a pool noodle but that was pretty scaring but fun as well.I started to swim around when I realised I was not moving I was sinking like an anchor. Then I bounced up like a spring and got out of the pool straight away. I wanted to go back in but I would have drowned so I did not go back in.
   

The random pool is a pool for people that are not very good swimmers like for practice or something.I usually spent most of my time in the learner's pool because it was warm and shallow. So shallow that I would even touch the bottom with my knees.I raced Lorena to the end of the pool and Lorena won the most (wow)  I was not really a good swimmer but Lorena did give me a head start so I didn't complain.
