  3. 3. Level 3The Conservation Trip to the Zoo19th November 2007.Todays trip to the Zoo was really enjoyable. The Auckland Zoo haslots of animals from many places. The tiger was my favourite. Theyare such a beautiful animal but are endangered in the wild throughout India and Asia. I cant believe people kill them for medicenceor fur coats.The Giraffe is such a cool animal, it can eat leaves high in treesthat other animals can reach. Giraffes are not endangered butthere homes are being reduced as land is used or farms. I foundsome info on giraffes is a better entry, focused on the purpose of the trip. The student has included links toresearch but justed inserted the link rather than formatting this. The student has linkedissues to the animals they saw. The post is relevant and timely. Blog writing or authoringis at level 3. The entry is structured, with links (the links are raw and need processing) andimages, few errors. This entry has reached an acceptable level for understanding.Andrew Churches Blog Journalling Rubric - Blooms Digital Taxonomy 02/01/09
  4. 4. Level 4Conservation Trip to Auckland Zoo19th November 2007The Science class went on a trip to Auckland Zoo as part of ourconservation unit. The teacher gave us a workbook to work throughand asked us to look at the endangered animals.Tigers are endangered throughout the world.Tigers are hunted and poached for their fur andfor use in medicences. There are several speciesof Tigers like the Siberian Tiger, the SumatrunTiger. I found some information about Tigers atAnimal Planet – TigersGiraffes are amazing. They are so well adapted totheir Niche. Their neck has the same number ofbones as our but is so long. This lets them eatsleaves high in trees. This is a huge help forthem as they dont have to compete with otheranimals for food. Animal Planet – Giraffe. Giraffe - class photoThe trip was really cool. It was nice to get outof the classroom, but it was very useful to see the animals wehave been learning about. I still wonder if it is fair to keepanimals in zoos. Wild animals should be in the wild, but I guessthe wild is shrinking. We need to take responsibility for this. Iwould like to help. I might join the WWF rangers on the WWF website.Mr Ts Blog entry on the trip is really good and the photos arereally good, even the one of Charles.This entry is well structured and shows insight and understanding.
