Aim of our project:


The aim of our project is to look at the 5 buildings in Wellington that best represents the town. If the people of Wellington can only save 1 building, which would it be? This is geography because, where you live and the environment around you shape the community.We will find out which is the most popular building and why people want to keep it?

Conclusion:
We have found out that the people of Wellington think the building that best represents Wellington is, WELLINGTON MONUMENT because, "it is historic", "people always ask about it", "it stands out" and it is, "a wonderful landmark"

The people of Wellington decided the building they would save if there was a disaster is: WELLINGTON MONUMENT.

We agreed with the people in Wellington, that the building we would save is the Monument because it is well known, and an historic tribute to the Duke of Wellington.


Evaluation:

DN: We really enjoyed this project because we were able to do field work, choose our own topic and using new skills on the computer.
We also enjoyed using the wiki because its new to us and it was fun.
SA: Producing the questions was difficult however asking the questions was easy for two of us but the other member of the group found it difficulult as she is very shy.
The wiki was good and we used it in class but none of us have the internet at home so we could not work on it at home.
RP: I enjoyed making the graphs and the map. The map was very useful and we found some it hard to understand, but in the end we figured it out. I liked working on the wiki but we had arguments as we all wanted to do the typing and use our new skills.
