Hi my name is Fern and I go to Te Kura O Waima. The focus for this piece was to present the information I found on the topic I selected research; this is a snippet of what my research is about. My learning purpose was to learn about and inform my audience about giraffes. For this piece of work I chose to create a google slide, research about giraffes and put all the information into my own words. I finished my work and I was successful in my learning. My next learning step is to link it to the learning outcome I choose for my next research project. If there is any feedback or questions please let me know.
