SLJ, Concluding the Journey :(- Day 5, Activity 3

  1. I have learned that there is such thing as Acid Rain
  2. One thing that surprised me was Timaru had the highest recorded level of air pollution!
  3. One thing that upset me was that people have predicted that the Maui Dolphin will be extinct by 2033 :(
  4. One thing that me and my family can do to protect the environment is use reusable bags 


  1. Hi Caitlyn!

    Thank you for sharing your summary of your Summer Learning Journey!

    You are right it is very crazy to think there is such a thing as acid rain - Did you get the chance to follow the link with more information?
    I didn't know that about Timaru either... pretty scary stuff aye! I wonder what is happening in the area that makes it so bad?
    It is really sad about the Maui dolphin, it really isn't that far away so it is good that people are trying to take action - did you get the chance to sign the petition?
    Using re-usable bags is a great idea! I was really happy when I came back to New Zealand and found out that supermarkets were going plastic bag free now, before I left it wasn't that way at all!

    You've done some amazing work on your activities Caitlyn, great job!
