My animal was the bilby, and I was really looking forward to learning about it. I personally think that I have achieved having more confidence because Jacinta and I had to be the second ones to go up and present, I had butterfly’s in my tummy but I got thought it and I thought we did really well. With the rubric I underlined mostly 3’s because I think we did a pretty good job at everything to do with our presentation, and I was just really impressed with our model because we put so much effort into it so I am glad that it all payed off.
3 facts I found interesting were:
*that the bilbies sense of seeing and hearing is not acute so their hearing is very acute.
*a baby bilby has to stay in its mothers belly for 80 days before coming out.
*a bilbies borrow can get up 2-3 meters deep.
*I understand that if a baby bilby came out of its mothers pouch early it would not survive.
*I understand that if the bilby didn’t have powerful forelimbs then, if it was running from its predators then it would have all ready been eaten because, its forelimbs give the bilby power to run fast.
*I am still wondering why a bilby has a black band around its tail.
I think the most important thing that I have learned this unit is how all these different types of animals have adapted over time for example I never knew that a camel had 3 sets of eyelashes.
How I learnt it:
I learnt it by paying attention in class and of course being engaged in the topic.
What am I going to do with what I have learnt:
I am going remember it so for the future if I need to know what the word or meaning of adaptations is I will be able to tell them.
