Today Ms Fothergill shared this url with us about the Tree Octopus, and asked us to take notes, which we recorded on Padlet.
A few of us were a bit dubious about the Tree Octopus, but we did the task anyway - of course we trusted Ms F! Well, not quite all of us... Zach wanted to google it but Ms F stopped him, and Alex managed to search Wikipedia before she had a chance.
What did Alex find? That the Octopus website is a HOAX!
It was created with the purpose of teaching us not to believe everything we read or see on the Internet.
It is always a good idea to visit 3-4 different websites when we are researching, to make sure we get the facts straight!
