Day 2: The roaring 20's

Activity 1: Popular culture- The silent movie
I think the movie is about people trying to find gold in a really cold place like Antarctica. I wouldn't really like to watch a silent movie because we wouldn't really understand what they are trying to say. So it would kind confuse people.

Activity 2: Art deco
3 because we don't really know what author is trying to achieve and it doesn't have expression but whoever painted it is very artistic.

Bonus Activity: Crossing the Tasman

I am a captain in my plane 
My crew shivering in the wake of the storm
My eyes strain to find a landing
I see landing lights
I land safely 
A mission well done 
Now we rest

  1. Hi Taleisha,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team! Great to see you have been working so diligently on these activities. Well done.

    Activity 1: I think that's what the movie's about too! Maybe we will have to watch it to find out though. Is there another way we could find out? Watching silent movies isn't something I could do every day but I would definitely like to watch one one day because some of them are quite well known.

    Activity 2: The artist has called this picture a self-portrait. I wonder why the artist chose to depict herself in this way. Why do you think she has painted herself like this? I gave the painting 4 stars because I thought the use of colour and shading was very clever.

    Bonus activity: Great work! I really enjoyed reading your poem. The way you have phrased the poem and used new lines to show how it should go. You've done a great job of not rhyming which can sometimes be even harder than rhyming!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog. Keep up the great work!
