### WEARABLE ARTS

##
__WEARABLE ARTS__

For the past term we have been working on wearable arts. If you don't know what wearable arts is, its when you make a costume out of random things you can find around the place. We got to work in groups so I worked with Jacob and rikki-lee. We had a few problems coming up with the idea but we eventually got it and started making the costume and I think it turned out pretty good. We made it out of mainly an old singlet and newspaper.

Here is the finished costume. (oh yeah its a dress for Rikki-lee)

### best work week 7 term 2

This week we have been doing reports on animals. I did a tiger because their my favorite animal. I think I did good because I had Fun. Here is the finished bit of work:

Tigers

Tigers are the biggest breed of the cat family.

Tigers can reach up to 3.3 metres long and weigh up to 330 KG’s

There are lots of breeds of tigers like the sumatran,the siberian and the bengal tiger . There are also the south china tiger, the malayan tiger and the Indochinese tiger.

Tigers can live to 25 years old

A group of tiger is called a ambush or a streak

Tigers are great swimmers,they can swim up to 6 kilometers.

Tigers can go up to 65 kph and usually hunt alone at night. Also Tigers can jump a length of 5 meters long.

Sadly some breeds of tigers are going extinct because they hunt the cows in villages and the farmers have to shoot the tigers to protect the cows. They are Also going extinct because people hunt them for their skins and teeth, this is called poaching and it is illegal.

Baby tigers are called tiger cubs

The mother tiger gives birth after 3 and a half months.

There are usually 3 or 4 cubs in each litter

In the wild they usually have the cubs in a cave without the father in the cave

Fun fact

Tiger cubs are only 2 pounds when they are born.
