The Waipa County Council have proposed as part of their Te Awamutu main street upgrade that heavy vehicles like trucks be banned from using the main street. We are going to look at whether trucks are a problem in the main street and if so what solutions could be available.

Stream Creatures

The focus this Term for Room 9 is going to be about the creatures that live in the stream. Our BIG QUESTION is: "Why are the creatures that live in the streams important to us?"

From here you need to find out which creatures live in the streams round Te Awamutu and decide which is the one that you want to study. The Learning Cave for Room 9 contains some good suggestions about which creatures you could study with some useful websites and downloadable information to print off.

Next you need to generate about ten good questions about the creature that you have chosen. Use the seven question words and keywords about your creature like: food, habitat etc. to help you.

The Room 9 Learning Cave has a useful research planning sheet at the bottom of the page under "Info Pages"
