48 thoughts on “Inquiry Reflection: Ecotourism Week 2

  1. Today I achieved finishing and publishing my seed. Even though I wasn’t here last week I still got my draft seed done quite quickly. Due to a bit of talking I didn’t get my published seed done as quickly. Same with Brandon.

    Today we learnt that some people do care about the enviroment because they build resorts made out of natural resorces and the things that they destroy to build on the land.

    Our goal for next week is to Finnish our Venn diagram and come up with a good inquiry question.

  2. 1) We have completed our mind maps and in the middle of our Venn diagram.
    2) We have learnt that being friendly to the environment is very important.
    3) Our goal for next week is to finish our Venn diagram and start the research for our model.

  3. Inquiry Reflection: Ecotourism Week 2
    Respond to the following in detail.

    – What did you achieve today?
    We achieved finishing out Mind Maps and our Venn Diagram.
    – What did you learn today?
    I learnt that some Non Eco Resorts only dedicate for making money so they can keep their resort generating and they don’t recycle organic materials.

    – What is your goal for next week?
    My goal for next week is to brainstorm some ideas about our essential inquiry question.

    I also learned to not knock on Mr. Prices classroom door because he’ll lock you out.

    1. Today I achieved by getting my 2 scetches completed for our model. I also achieved by completing our flyer.

      Today I learnt that there are many ways to collect power from the sun such as using solar panels and wind turbines to generate things. I learnt that solar panels and wind turbines collect power from the sun and wind which power our electricity.

      My goal for next week is to start our model which will be located in the Daintree Rainforest. My other goal for next week is to be able to try and advertise our our Eco-resort in some way.

  4. From Kayleigh, Taylor and Jay.

    1: We completed our mind maps and the venn diagram today.

    2: We learned that when you want to build something you have to speak to the owners of the land or eles it is classified as stealling the land.

    3: Our goal for next week is to get our inquiry questions done and research where we are going to build our resort.

  5. We achieved finishing our mind map, and our front cover.
    I learnt to never ever ever go into Mr Price’s room without knocking on the door. I also learnt non-eco friendly resorts don’t recycle organic materials.
    My goal for next week is to annoy Mr Price more by going into his room without knocking. My other goal for next week is to publish my Venn diagram.

  8. Today, my focus was completing my Venn diagram, inquiry question, choosing an Australian rainforest and writing my hypothesis. I completed all of those, and I am very happy with myself. My goal for next week is to finish research on the Daintree (the forest I chose). My other goal is to design my ecofriendly resort with my partner, Mahnee.
    🙂

  9. Kayleigh, Taylor and Jay (Jay wrote this).

    -Today I achieved quite a lot, in my opinion. Taylor and I printed out 3 Venn diagrams, each for Kayleigh, Taylor and I. We figured out a question which was “Why do we need to develop ecofriendly resorts in rainforests?”. Then we started researching some Australian rainforests to build an ecofriendly resort on. We chose a place called “Florence Falls” in Western Australia. It has a waterfall and 1,500 patches of rainforest.

    -I learnt quite a lot of things today. I have learnt the “Florence Falls” in W.A has 1,500 scattered rainforest parts in it. Each little patch of forest has 5 hectares. Also, Florence Falls contains animals such as buffalos, pigs and birds.

    -My goals for next week are to complete at least my rough sketch of the resort. If I get that done, I will look into doing the 2nd sketch.

  26. you achieve today?

    Today I finished our second draft and started getting the boxes we needed to start building our model.

    – What did you learn today?

    To day I learnet that that place we are doing the waterfall has a river attached to it and I learnt that to make you resort Eco friendly you need to have water tanks to have fresh water and solar panels to get power in you building and not use waste and make it not Eco friendly.
    Useing solar panels is Eco friendly because you don’t have to cut down trees and get power lines in the forset and and using solar panels means you can use natural recourses around you.

    – What is your goal for next week?

    To start building out model and maybe get half of the model finished.

  27. I also learnt that you need entertainment and advertising to get people to come. I learnt that people have to take a plane to get to the resort and then take a cab or rent a car to get there. I learnt that when we have an animal sanctuary we have to let the animals go where ever they want to go because we are taking their land.
    I learnt that you can also put a animal care place in an resort, I never thought you could do that.

  28. Today we achieved to finish our first sketch and nearly finished our 2nd good copy sketch.
    I learned some things that make a resort ecofriendly. For example I learnt that freshwater doesn’t make a resort ecofriendly. Because any resort in the world could have freshwater.
    Next week I would like to work harder to try and complete our 2nd sketch and start our building.

  29. –Jay–

    What did you achieve?

    Today we finished our model sketches, 1&2. We also completed the poster advertisement for people to come and tour around our place. To make the poster, I typed on word different paragraphs about different subjects and stuck it in the poster.

    What have you learnt?

    Today I learnt some things about our model, which was that in the wet season, the waterfall for Florence Falls is really dangerous. But in the dry season, it’s safer. I also learnt that Florence Falls also has a river. I learnt (well didn’t really learn) but took some advice, which was to collect the fallen trees and re-plant them instead of cutting them down then re-growing them.

    Next week goals

    Next week I want our group to finish at least half of our model, because we only have 3 weeks to go, plus I think we will be going to model building too. I also want to completely finish the other things like the poster/advertisement.
