"Geographical Significance Of The Amazon"

The Amazon rain forest is geographically significant to the world, and the there are numerous reasons why. Before we head off to the reasons of the Amazon rain forest, the definition of the word “Geographically” is the based on or derived from the from the physical features of an area, and in this paragraph, I will talk about the physical features of the Amazon. So first of all, the Amazon rain forest is located in the centre ring of the world called the equator, also known as the ‘Belt.’ The equator or the ‘Belt’ is the most hottest place in the world as the centre of the Earth is tilting to the Sun, which has an increase of temperature according to our Scientists and Researchers. Another reason why the Amazon rain forest is geographically significant to the world is because it’s the top largest rain forest in the world. As of many other forests, the Amazon forest is a place to find medicines for healing such as Anti-fungal, and these medicines are found in plants, in which Scientists and Researchers look for.

Another feature of the Amazon rain forest is that they have layers, as well as other rain forests. These layers are divided into four, and the first layer of the rain forest is the Emergent layer, the second layer is the Canopy, the third layer is called the Under story, and the fourth layer is known to be called the Forest Floor layer. The first layer, the Emergent layer is home to birds, butterflies, bats and small monkeys. The second layer, Canopy is home 90% of animals in the rain forest because it contains a rich source of fruits and seeds. The third layer, Under story is home to countless insects such as bees, stick insects and etc because of it’s warmth, dampness, and it also gives shelters to most animals living there. The last layer, Forest floor is the home to small, developing, or dead plants & animals. This layer is where the photosynthesis, and decomposition occurs. Decomposition is the process in which organisms such as worms, fungi, bacteria and other decomposer's break down these dead plants and animals. Once they are decomposed, they become part of the soil, and produces carbon dioxide for the rain forest.

The final reason of this paragraph of why the Amazon rain forest is geographically significant to the world is because it is home to the majority of various kinds of species, such as Harpy eagles, Orangutan's, Jaguars, Leopards, Toucans, Gorillas, Golden Lion Tamarin Monkeys, and etc.

[Art] - "Final Design"

Greetings and welcome to my new blog post! As you may of have seen on my last post, I talked about the process of the work I've been doing in Art Option class. Throughout the past few weeks, I've been working on a project that allows me to think about my "Negative & Positive" features within the artwork itself. I have now finished my piece of art work, and here is an image displaying what it looks like in its final step. Thank you very much for visiting my blog, and stay tuned for more!

[Art]- "What Have We Learnt?"

Image result for artGreetings and welcome to my new blog post! Throughout last term and also this term (last couple of weeks), in our Optional Art class with Mrs Telefoni, we've been learning and designing a phenomenal piece of artwork. This artwork consists of our personal interests, surroundings & family/friends. We've looked into the technique that is used to create the artwork piece, and the technique used is carving and inking. We also looked into the placement of images, such as the Foreground, Midground and of course, the Background. . I was not told the proper technique or method, but those are the different processes we've gone through. The first thing we had to do was research images in which you are either interested in or the other topics above. The next step was to create a draft image to display what your final design is going to be... consisting of the topics you've chosen. After that... we began looking into the carving process, and we had to think about the "Negative & Positive sides", which was a big challenge for me at first. As of the process that I'm currently working on at the moment is waiting for my ink compressed image to dry up so that I am able to paint it. So that's the next process... "painting." Stay tuned to see my finished design, and thank you very much for visiting my blog!

[Social Studies] - "Avatar Film Perspectives"

"Avatar Film Perspective"

Greetings and welcome to my new blog post! Throughout this week in Social Studies with Ms Robertson, we have watched a well known film named "Avatar." From this film, we've been discussing about it's significant places such as Pandora, the homeland to the indigenous Na'Vi people. We've now moved onto the different perspectives or opinions we have upon the different characters shown within this film. Here is an image which was created on Google Drawings, informing you of my perspective/opinion that I have of characters portrayed within Avatar. These characters are Neytiri (Indigenous of Na'Vi clan), Jake Sully, Grace Augustine & Colonel Miles Quaritch. Thank you for visiting my blog, I appreciate it!
