  1. OWI
    Observe-
    I observe a giant red rock.
    I see dead trees around the big rock.
    I see dead grass.
    I see a sunset.
    I see red sand.

    Wonder?
    I wonder how big the giant rock is?
    I wonder why the trees are dead? I
    I wonder why there is a lot of dead grass around?
    I wonder what time it is in the day?
    I wonder where it is for it to have red sand?

    Infer-
    I infer that the rock is very big because people think that it is the tip of the giant rock that is sticking out of the ground.
    I infer that it gets very hot there because there is red sand and a lot of dead things and trees around the area.
    I infer that the grass is dead because there is no water for plants to grow like the would in Victoria.
    I infer that it is late in the afternoon because the sun is starting to disappear as night comes.
    I infer that it is in the Northern Territory because the Northern Territory is desert and makes a great home for the big rock.

  2. Observe
    I can see a big red rock, high up into the sky.
    I can see lots of small dried green bushes surrounding the outside of Uluru.
    I can see the bluish red sky behind Uluru.
    I can see a lot of different patters dug into Uluru.
    I can see hot yellow sand in between the bushes
    Wonder
    I was wondering if Uluru was taller than it is now.
    How do the bushes survive in the steaming hot desert?
    Is the sun setting or rising?
    Why are there patters in the sides of Uluru?
    Did the hot sand used to be under water?
    Infer
    I can infer that Uluru is 348 meters high.
    I can infer some of the bushes have evolved to the desert heat.
    I can infer rising because the ground is very bright and easy to see.
    I can infer that the patterns were because of the wind and water washing away the loose red sand/rock.
    I can infer the sand is hot because of the hot sun and some of the sand from Uluru is on the ground.

  3. Observe:
    – A huge sunburnt rock in the middle of nowhere.
    – A bluey, pinky sunset.
    -Wild, dusty, dried up, shrivelled bushes and shrubs.
    Wonder:
    – I wonder how long the rock has been there for?
    -Are any of the plants near Uluru fertile enough to sprout fresh, green plants?
    -Is the background rising or setting?
    Infer:
    -Uluru has been thought to be around 60 million years old. My evidence is that the article says so. It is said that it is part of the peak of a mountain.
    -I highly doubt that any plants would grow around there. My evidence is that it is so dry and hot around there.
    -I infer that it is sunset. My evidence is that it is a bit dark at the top of the sunset.

  4. O – OBSERVE W-WONDER I-INFER
    1 I see a massive red/orange rock. Why is the colour red/orange? I infer that the heat has changed is form and colour.
    2 I see dead grass with the colour brown ash. Why is there dead grass? I infer that has been there from years and years ago.
    3 I see a large rock in the middle of nowhere. Why is the rock there? I infer the rock was built for the public.
    4 I see trees surrounding Uluru. Why are trees surrounding Uluru? I infer the trees were planted there for a cetin reason.
    5 I see an orange track heading towards Uluru. Why is there a track heading towards Uluru? I infer that it is a car/bike track towards Uluru.

  5. O: “One of the most famous Australian scenes is Uluru at sunrise or sunset”.

    W: Why is it famous at these times of the day?

    I: I think that they are famous at sunrise and sunset because they might change colour. My evidence for this is that it says “the rock seems to change colour to purple, or brilliant red”. I also infer this from general knowledge.

    O: “Millions of years of erosion by wind and water has given Uluru its unique shape”.

    W: How did the wind and water carve Uluru?

    I: I think that the sea carved it because it even says in the article that it used to be at the bottom of the sea. And I think that the wind could’ve carved it because it could’ve started to carve the rock when it first came out of the sea.

    O: I see a huge, red rock (Uluru) with different crater-looking things and a green, bushy land below it.

    W: How big is this massive rock?

    I: I think that it is obviously very, very big because it is known as the biggest rock in the world, and there’s even more underneath it too. I also think that it is big because my evidence says that it’s 348 metres high, and 2 kilometres wide.

    O: I see a very old, wide rock.

    W: How long has Uluru existed for?

    I: I infer that it has existed for a VERY long time because it was even old when the aboriginals were around. I also infer that it has been around for a huge amount of time because it even says in the text “It is thought that the mountain was created 600 million years ago”.

    O: A very, very pitch red rock that also looks sandy.

    W: Why is it so red?

    I: I infer that it is so red because of the time of the day; depending if it’s sunrise or sunset. I also think that it’s red because the text says “The striking ochre-red colour comes from the rock’s high iron content”. If it wasn’t for the high iron content, the rock would just be a dull grey colour.

    O: “Now part of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, the park and rock is owned by the Amangu people”.

    W: Who are the Amangu people?

    I: I infer that the Amangu people are aboriginal people because of the name. I also have evidence from the text saying what they might be; it says “People who lease it back to the government”.

  15. I can see:
    -The change of the colour of the rock at different times of the day.
    -Underneath the ground, the being way bigger than an elephant.
    -The traditional aboriginal spirits and stories protecting and surrounding the precious rock.
    -A decollate surrounding with no life or green or nothing.

    -I wonder if the rock sucks up all the moisture?

    -Since the aboriginals are the natives of Australia, I infer it was a major place to survive.
    -Because the rocks so big I infer the rock sucked all the moisture which means no grass around the area. Plus it’s in a desert in 40 degree heat.
    -I infer the rock is in the desert because of the type of rock, that orange bright type.
