OUR WET ENVIRONMENT - THE DAM

This term Year 1/2 have been studying wet and dry environments. The students were able to explore the school’s own wet environment -  the dam. These are some of their observations:



We have a dam because all the water is collected there. A dam stores water. Our dam was built before the school. The dam has brown water in it. Our dam has trees, algae and plants. At our dam we saw ducks and lizards. Our dam is shady because the trees are in the way. A dam is good because the plants and animals could drink a lot of water.

We have a dam near our school. We have a dam because it stores water. The dam attracts birds and other animals. It is a place where plants can grow. The dam was built when our school was a farm. The animals drank water from the dam. The dam looks like a pond. It is just bigger and with holes. When we visited the dam we saw water reeds, land reeds, trees and grass. We saw ducks and lizards and also a rabbit. The ground was mushy sand and soil. It was shady because there were lots of trees. It is a good place for plants and animals because they can drink water whenever they want.

We have a dam to store water. A dam is where animals and plants live. The dam was built before the school. It was a farm. The farmer used to dam so that the animals could drink. Our dam looks like a big pond and there are two pipes going into our dam. When we visited the dam we saw grass, trees, sticks and ducks. The ground around the dam was sandy. It was shady because there where lots of trees. The dam is a good place.

The dam is a place where plants grow. Our dam was built before the school. The water looks dirty. When we visited our dam we saw weeds and algae. We saw ducks, tadpoles and little lizards. The sand around the dam was soft and mushy. It was shady because there were many tall trees. I liked the dam because it was big and fat.
