In week 8 the kowhai team had technology week. We had lots of fun, we did stuff like building puff mobiles out of 3 straws, 1 piece of paper, 2 meters of sellotape and 4 cheerios. Next we made bird feeders, out of 20 pieces of news paper, one roll of sellotape 2 pieces of A4 paper and one piece of A4 plastic and 4 straws. We also did bridge building, we had to build them out of 1 piece of card board, 50 straws, 1 roll of sellotape and 10 ice block sticks. It had to hold 4 kg. Wow! Finally we made snail traps out of 30 straws, 1 little cup and a little roll of sellotape. My favourite thing to do was making the snail traps and puff mobiles. The hardest thing to do was building the snail traps.One of the hard things about the snail traps is that we started doing one idea and then we said that it wasn't going to work so then we did the other idea.
