  3. This week we were learning about the UAE .
    We did some food tasting here are some ,
    Examples dates and cheese , Piterbread
    , flafles ,and huomues. We had a opprunity to paint
    A silowet or to draw a silowet.

  4. This week I made lot of progress about the UAE. UAE is a very rich country because they have lot of oil which they trade with other countries and in return get lot of money. The seven emirates of UAE are Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Quwaim, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah and the capital Abu Dhabi. World’s tallest building is in Dubai which is called as Burj Khalifa.

    I used my sketching skills to sketch skyline buildings and my mapping skills to find UAE on the map. I found out why strait of Hormuz is important using my research skills. The strait of Hormuz is important because it stores twenty percent of world’s total petroleum.

    The highlight of the week was when we had an Arabian dinner because it was really fun and I learnt about how Arabian’s have their dinner. They sit on floor and eat.

    Now I have learnt a lot about UAE(United Arab Emirates).

  5. I loved around the world week and learnt about so much because at first I did not know that the UAE even exists let alone the fact that it contains the world’s tallest building!
    I can name a few landmarks like the Burj Khalifa, Palm Island, Princess Tower and Dubai.
    My favourite thing was eating the cultural food, it taught me dates are actually VERY NICE (especially with cheese). You should have seen the amount of children who thought they won’t like dates but really did.
    The UAE has 7 emirates which include of Abu Dubai, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Qaiwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.

  6. This weak, I have learnt about the two tallest buildings that are Burj Khalifa and Princess Tower. What a strait means- a strait means a narrow passage of water connecting two seas or two other large areas of water, even I have improved on my mapping skills and locating is well because I got all mixed up of labelling but when I located the seven emirates I got the hang of the mapping, the ICT helped me with my computer and finally but not least tasting the food of the Arabic people.:)

  7. This week , i have learnt many things about the UAE such as : what food people eat , famous landmarks as well as the seven emirates. In the UAE , diferent cuisines include : rice , meat and fish ( these are traditional dishes ) chicken shawarma , fallafel and delious pitta bread . One seven emirates in the UAE , Dubai , holds the record for the tallest building in the world , the Burj Khalifa which is 728m tall . Also people who have lived in the UAE all of there lives would wear abayas and dish dashas . The UAE gets most of its most of its money from the strait of hormuz which supplies with more than 15 million barrel of oil everyday
