The camping trip

   The first day!

On Thursday we left super excited 😀 for a camping trip to Kobersdorf. At first we quickly built up the tents and then we put the equipment into them. Afterwards we went to a lake where we enjojed a delicious lunch. After that we played hide and seek around the lake. A little while later we had a meeting to discuss the float we were about to build. We did that with Gerhard. Our materials were six barrels, two long strains, four short strains and ropes. After we built the raft we took it and rowed with it on the lake. Suddenly several kids fell into the water. One kid said: ,,This is like the Titanic!"After we did that we played funny games. Then we went to dinner. When we were finished  we went back in the darkness to the camping area.
When we were there we made a campfire and ate sweets and nachos. Horror stories 😱😈👻 we told too (and one girl was so scared that she couldn't sleep for the rest of the night). At nine p.m we went into our tents.

    The second day!

In the freezing morning we ate breakfast. We had bread and muesli but we had to eat the muesli in a cup. Afterwards we lit up a campfire because it was so cold and we discussed which activities we would do today. Then we went on a funny scavenger hunt. We got a list with many missions. We had to find four different fruits and three different leaves and more stuff like this. Our checkpoint was the landmark. At the crossroads we went to the lake where we ate lunch. After lunch we could play until we went to dinner. Afterwards we went back to the camping area and we made a campfire again. At eleven p.m we were very tired 😴 and went back to the tents.

The last day!

The last day wasn't exciting. We took our tents apart, ate breakfast, had lunch, went back and drove by bus back to school. When we were there we were all happy 😊 to see our parents.

Celts and trees

Yesterday in History we learned about Celts and trees  
(what a surprise that we learned yet again about trees)

We interviewed some students about their project day yesterday:

sir_puppet: "Hey Tizian what did you learn yesterday?"
Tizian: "About nationality, Celts, iron and our Celtic tree horoscope. So we talked about Celts and their culture and we all had trees with our birthdays. For example the weeping willow for the 1st-10th of March and the 3rd-12th of September. The weeping willow is artistic and loves the beauty in all forms and has got two souls in one body – one is dreamy and the other is lyrical.

sir_puppet: "Was it fascinating?"
Tizian: "Yes it was very cool!"

sir_puppet: "And you? What do think about yesterday?"
Tim:"It was cool."
sir_puppet:"What was cool?"
Tim"The coolest thing yesterday was the second unit. We heard a story and then we had to write a story on our own. Then we got a plant. It was very cool."

parts of a tree and tree structure

The tree has got five layers.

🌲The first layer is called bark.🌳

The bark protects the tree from environmental influences, such as strong sunlight, cold, heat, fungal and insect infestation.  
🌳The second layer is called bast🌲

The bast or inner bark supplies the tree with nutrients. The bast dies relatively quickly and turns into cork and then into bark.

🌲The third layer is called cambium.🌳

The cambium is a thin cell layer, which is actually the growing part of the tree. This is controlled by plant hormones, which are formed in spring in the leaf buds of the branch tips. bark and wood.

 🌳The fourth layer is called sap wood.🌲

The sap wood represents the water pipes of the tree, which sweetens the crown space. With the formation of new sap wood rings, the inner rings lose their function and become heart wood. 

🌲And the most inner layer is called heart wood. 🌳

The heart wood is the main element of the tree. It may be considered as a support framework consisting of hollow, needle-like cellulose fibers held together by chemical glue, lignin.  🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲

project day diary

Yesterday, on September 25th we had our school-project-day.
At first we had ex-cathedra teaching about the history of trees.
After this we did worksheets about how we can find out how old things are. 
For example: It is possible to find out and proof the age of items and also trees. 

At the end of our school day we met another teacher and two other parents who talked about our garden project.
In  this project we had the task to renew our available garden to get a retreat or playground for us and the other older kids.
This garden is also a place were we can plant trees and flowers to get fruits from the trees and to have a beautiful time in the garden.

To sum up, yesterday we learned many things about the past and how we know when things happened.

Our excursion to Marz (Burgenland)

Hi there!

Yesterday our school was in Burgenland on a nice excursion!
We learned a lot about trees, plants, animals and the whole forest.
At first we took the bus to Marz. We met our guide at the park and then we went 
into the forest. When we were in the woods he explained many interesting 
things about nature and wildlife. Then we acted out a little theater about the role of the wood. Later we went to a campfire place and grilled sausages. 🔥🍴
After this little break we played a game called "Zombie Catching". 
That was very funny!😀 At last we went into a small room where we
 talked about the animals which live in the forest.🐗🐰🐜🐛

We had a great day!

A viral blog or viral video is when I share a blog/video with my friends and my friends share it with their friends.

This is our first blog entry 💪💚

We are 7 students from year 8 and 7 and we will cover our
