Today we sold popcorn and cupcakes at lunch time to raise money for the Sun Bears. Our sales were interrupted by the wet and cold weather, so we had to go classroom to classroom to sell our stuff. We are very pleased to announce that we have raised $28.60.
Thank you to everyone who purchased something.

We learnt about a book called ‘Kip’. Kip is a rooster that all day long will go, ‘coca doodle do’. They put him on a farm and the neighbourhood said it was too quiet, so they went to see him and he went, ‘coca doodle do’.
We had to draw pictures of him and paint them.

To see our blog as we intended it to look, I recommend the following internet browsers in order of preference.
Unfortunately Microsoft’s Internet Explorer doesn’t display our blog correctly. Many of the widgets installed in the right hand column near the bottom stretch across the whole screen. I personally use Google’s ‘Chrome’, and am very happy with it. You can import all your settings and bookmarks from Internet explorer if you decide to change.
In term two we went on a Zoo Snooze Camp. We looked at the different animals at the zoo. We even got the ability to see the animals at night. We even got to go in the Sun Bear’s enclosure. Our focus was on the sun bears. We found out that the sun bears were endangered, because people got bear bile out of the sun bears, which is used for medicine. They are kept as pets and when they get big people give them to the restaurants and they chop off the paws and turn them into bear paw soup. People also keep Sun Bears on Sun Bear farms in small cages.
We are doing a planet keeper challenge to help the sun bears.
We are selling yummy foods to raise money for the sun bears. We are raising awareness by blogging about the Sun Bears, speaking at our school assemblies and talking to other classes.
Below is a slide show of our experiences while on the Zoo Snooze Camp.
