100 Throws and The Snail Race!!!

This is the one hundred throws game. What you had to do was get two dice and throw them one hundred times and as you were doing that you had to keep a tally chart. Then at the end you have to add all the tallies from one number and write the total and then you have to answer the questions and enter your results into the bar graph.  

This is me telling you about my results for one
hundred throws.

This is the snail race. What you had to to was well you had a sheet of paper and on there was 7 snails on it in an arrow shape. With 7 at the back and 12 and 2 at the front sort of. You roll two dice that go up to six on it and roll them and add them together and if it is a 7 you would move 7 one space. When you did that you had to answer. Watch the video above and see my results.

My Olympic athlete.

Hello my name is Casey and I am here to tell you about Alison Shanks. Alison turned to cycling in 2005 and has been in the New Zealand track team since 2006.She was fourth in the individual pursuit.London will be her second olympics after coming fourth in Beijing in the individual pursuit like I mentioned earlier.

In London she switched to the team pursuit and was teamed up with Jamie Nielsen and Lauren Ellis. My old brownie leader is a relation of hers and she asked her to come to our school and she did and showed us her helmet, her shirt, her bike, her sunglasses and things. It was really cool.

Alison Shanks was born in Dunedin and she is still living there today. She is a cycler and she cycles on a track.
The age she is at the games is 29.
I am Casey and this was a bio about Alison Shanks.
