Here is my design for Olympic in 2020 in Tokyo. It shows this person doing push ups because in the Olympics you would have to do a lot of hard work and train very hard for the Olympics.
The giant Lemon & Paeroa is located in Waikato in New Zealand. It is a sweet-soft drink that is made in New Zealand. It was made by adding lemon juice and carbonated water from the town of Paeroa.
Did you know that it took two years and nine months to build the Sky tower? The construction started in 1994 and opened in in 1997. It is located in the Auckland city, Victoria Street W & Federal Street. The height of the tower is 328 meters tall.
This is called 'Gumboot Capital Of The World' and as you can see it is located in Taihape in New Zealand. The boot represents the humble and hardworking working of their community.
In this episode that I watched of the Tom & Vinicius show, I think they were making a home to sleep in and including some of the Olympic sports while building the house. Click this link if you would like to check it out.

When the Olympics were held in Greece 2792 years ago women weren't a loud to participate or even watch the Olympics. I think this was a cruel rule back then, because women should've been able to do what men could do back then and just as well as the men could. And it's also not fair for the women just to stay home alone and only the men to contribute in the Olympics.
(Fact No. 1) Milo of Croton was a Greek wrestler in the 16th century BC. He came from the Greek city in the southern Italy. (Fact No. 2) Milo was said to be a friend of Pythagoras. Milo of Croton saved his Pythagoras's life when a roof was about to fall on him. (FACT No. 3) The date of Milo's death is unknown, but people said that he had been splitting a tree in half when his hand became trapped in the tree.
About 2792 years ago, the Olympic was held in a place called Greece. Imagine you were invited to the join the Olympic, which one out of these would you pick to participate in: running, wrestling, boxing, pankration, horse racing and pentathlon.
If I was invited to play in the Olympic 2792 years ago I would choose to join the running activity, the diaulos where the athletes run two lengths of the stadium. Reason; I am comfortable in running and more experienced in this sport than I am with the other ones.

Joel rapidly unlocked the front door and saw the blood covered rat lying still on the cold hard ground in front of him. As he got further inside his house, a terrible stench slowly began to creep up his nose. He immediately covered his hand over his nose but after a while the smell disappeared.
When Joel reached the study area of his house he noticed that a window had been left open. He had been to Uni classes, but on his return he noticed mysterious scratches covering the window sill.
A straight A student at Auckland University, Joel had just returned home from a study break. When he saw the dead rat he felt sick. Then Joel realized that the living room was a total mess. The book shelf had fallen, couches and curtains had been ripped and glass scattered on the floor from a window that had been broken. He ran his fingers over his short black hair. “How did this happen?” he groaned.
As he walked over to shut the window he heard loud ripping sounds coming from the direction of the living room. “What was that?” he whispered. Joel walked towards the direction of the noise but before he could take a step a vicious wild cat jumped at his face and scratched one of his bright blue eyes. “Youch!!” Joel cried.
He quickly stood and ran to the telephone where he rang the nearest pest control company. “Hi, how may I help you?” said a low deep voice. “Can I please have your finest pest controller now please it’s urgent” Joel said in a desperate voice. A few minutes later the pest controller turned up with all his traps and tools to capture the mischievous cat.
After the catastrophe was over, Joel sat calmly on one of the wrecked couches in the living room. He gazed at all the books on the bookshelves that had fallen over and he remembered his study books and uni class, but he was already too late. Instead he stayed home to clean up the disaster in his living room. He definitely wouldn’t forget that experience in a while.
_________________________________________________________________________________WALT: Write a narrative that has detail explaining the basics things needed in a good narrative. For this task we are learning to write a descriptive narrative and create an artwork that relates to our narrative. As you can see above my narrative I have created an image based on Collin Thompson's art work; Grandma's Treasure.
