The Google Expedition

On Tuesday the 24th of November the Team 5 block had an Google Expedition. Michael was the man that was giving us the instructions. The year 7’s had it in the morning when the year 8’s were gone to technology, but the year 8’s had it after morning tea.
The Google Expedition is so amazing, it’s all about visiting places and the forest also all sorts of things. It was made as goggles but more detailed, it’s a cardboard made like goggles but they put a smart phone underneath inside. The cardboard was really interesting with the smart phone, but there was a lot of rules of the cardboard.

Mrs Tele’s was part of this as well, she was telling us the rules of the expedition. There was this button on the smartphone from the side, if we press it then the phone will reset. Mrs Tele’s was telling us the button for the zooming in and out, also the places we were on.Michael and Mrs Tele’s were both doing the location like going to the places. Sometimes Mrs Tele’a would tell us to spot some things in the forest and under water. We even visited the highest tower in the world, it was so high and scary.

These are the places we visited on the Google Expedition. Under Water, In The Forest, The jungle, The highest tower, France in a bedroom, Anzac Graves In Gallipoli. That’s all the places I can remember but there was more than that.While we were seeing these interesting places we noticed that they’re 4D on the expedition. People were always saying it’s “3D” but it was actually 3D. The highest tower was my best place we visited.

If we wanted to look around we have to move around or go side to side. We could always look up and look down on the ground to spot some insects. But it was quite annoying because we were always bumping into each other.The girls were so annoying because they were screaming and laughing. But I was just being quite and looking around, the boys weren’t screaming at all the were just talking to each other. Mrs Tele’a said if we be really noisy then we won’t visit that much places.

We had about 15 mins for each group, because there was 3 groups and my group was “Rua” we were the first group to try it. The girls were being so fussy so the next group had to come. But we didn’t have that much places to visit, we only had about 8 or 7. Nobody was mad about finishing early they were just so happy that they did the google expedition. We Finally finished and the next group came it was group “Toru”, I was trying to tell them about it but they were just too excited. That was the end of our Google Expedition so we had to go back to class and carry on with our “Maths”.
