Three facts I found interesting and surprising:
Well, one fact I found interesting about this project is that Professor Tim Flannery has found a whole 29 species of tree kangaroo! I always thought that most zoologists only discover a very little number of animals, or if they even discover new species.
My second fact I found Interesting and surprising is that he helped in a major part of finding the first ever Australian fossil because that seems like something very big for Australia’s history.
My last fact I find interesting is how many books he has wrote! I didn’t know that zoologists would write books as well as find out about animals, He has wrote so many books I was very surprised!
Two understandings I now have:
An Understanding I have about Tim Flannery is that you don’t have to just discover animals when you are a zoologist; you also help them survive, and make their future better so they don’t get extinct.
My second understanding is that if someone is a zoologist, they don’t only have to be a zoologist and discover animals they can have other jobs and discover things about nature in general, because Tim Flannery is also a Palaeontologist, Scientist, and also studies the weather.
One wondering I still have is:
When did he begin his career as a Zoologist? This was one of our questions but it was a bit hard to find a lot of information about this, so we were also wondering how to access more information that is about a person that is not too well-known throughout the world.
What were the most important things I learnt?
If you are looking for information about someone that is not too well known, and as I said before it can be hard to find information about these people, you have to not just skim through a large piece of text to find a certain fact, it’s often hidden amongst the words and you can also find very useful information in the text.
How did I learn it?
I learnt it because it was getting very frustrating to find lots of actual useful information about Professor Tim Flannery. So I had to look within all those websites and eventually I found some good information that was actually about him, not just stuff about who he works with that I didn’t really need in this project.
What am I going to do with what I have learnt?
I am going to use it for my future projects so I can get more interesting, useful facts. I am going to make sure it’s true before I but it on the project though, and it won’t be so annoying to find information!
Finally a concluding statement where you share your overall thoughts and feelings about your project, the work you did, what you learnt and how it was working with your team.
I think Eden and I did pretty well, this project was a little bit harder because when I thought about explorers I always think about famous people that everyone knows, but these people didn’t explore land! They had to discover more things outside of land so I even had a little bit of trouble finding who to even do for the project! With the final prezi, I think it is pretty good, but there were some technical difficulties with getting it to load and logging in so it was kind of slow, but we went well in the end!
