Were did Able Tasman go?                                                                                                              Why were there smaller colonies than others?  

I understand why some of the colonies did not want to join with others.

The truth is that once everyones left i like to go around every part of the aquarium and clean the tanks, feed the animals and i like to just stare at them and think that how grateful i am for animals. When i was younger i used to watch all these animal shows it was so funny looking back at that and seeing where i am now.

Two men Private Suds and Private Thompson deliberately stole a piece of cloth to get caught. They thought that convicts had better lives than soldiers. Convicts got assigned hours, good pay and when they have done their time they can apply for land grants. But Governor Darling was furious and wanted to make an example of these two and made their punishment HARSH! They were put in chains and made to work on roads. The chains made it impossible to walk or stand properly, five days later Private Suds died.

Why were the chains so heavy?                                                                                                               How did Private Suds get ill?

I understand why their punishment was so bad.

100 Word challenge However, Yellow, Gingerly, Discovered, Remarkable.

I swam around the edge of the coral and DISCOVERED a REMARKABLE, YELLOW sea star stuck to the edge of the coral. I GINGERLY studied the sea star. I was nervous thinking of the things it could do. HOWEVER it looked like a normal sea star apart from its bright YELLOW colour.

I then took a photo to bring back to the marine scientists to study it. I reached out to touch it it felt hard and rubbery like a normal sea star but it was still so unusual because of its bright YELLOW colour.

The article was about the first fleet arriving in Australia with a ship full of English convicts and what the Aboriginals thought of it.

Captain Cook landed his boat in a place he called Sydney cove in 1788.                               England’s population had exploded and they suffered from poverty and crime and their jails were full.                                                                                                                                        They sent all their convicts to Australia to create a new colony.                                                                The Aboriginal people were angry and annoyed at the “Ghost people”.

Why was England’s population so big?                                                                                             How did the Aborigines people get to Australia and how long have they been here and how did they survive?
