JUNE 2018 PERSONAL PROJECT

 

 

My ideas are:

  1. Find new mystery science experiment to work on.

 

My final decision is that I will… Find a new Mystery Science experiment to work on.

 

My plan is to… Choose an experiment that I am interested in.

 

I will keep my work / information…  in my mind

 

My final ‘product’ or my aim I am working to achieve is… to learn new facts in science.

 

Transdisciplinary Themes I am Working on:  

HOW THE WORLD WORKS: science (living things, physics, chemistry etc.); scientific & technological discoveries/inventions.

Approaches to Learning I will Focus On:  

Research Skills – Asking questions. Observing. Planning. Collecting & recording data/information by drawing, note taking, making charts, writing etc. Organizing information. Making conclusions.

Math Playground! Our New Math Website

Today, (June 10th), me and my classmates tried a new math website that helped us improve our measurement skills for area and perimeter. It included word problems to answer and some rectangles to measure and find their perimeter and area. I enjoyed the website it didn’t teach me anything new but it enhanced my measurement skills (Length,Width,Area and Perimeter).I hope that in the future we get to do more challenging work that will enhance our skills as a class not just as individuals unlike this activity. It taught us all the same things and helped us improve as one. This sort of activity is new to me since usually when we have an assignment on Google Classroom we are all assigned with different things which are assigned mostly assigned on our trouble spots. I would prefer us to move altogether so we can stay on track an keep everybody at the same level. Therefore if we continue to use websites like this, nobody will be trailing behind because they will get the same information as the rest of the class. I really enjoyed this website and enjoy all websites of sort and hope we continue to use websites like this one!

Alive At Five (Unit 5)

In our U.O.I unit we played a game called ‘Alive At Five’. It was a great game. We each got a card with a nationality, name and answers to eight questions about our environment and lives. We started between 2 areas. One meant death, while the other meant survival. Each question that had an answer that was good for us made us move one step forward while the ones with an answer that didn’t benefit us would make us move one step backwards. If you were closer to death than survival (like me) you wouldn’t die, but you wouldn’t be as healthy as the others. If you were closer to survival then you would survive but you would only be 80% healthy. I really enjoyed the game and learned that many kids actually go through this and don’t survive (especially in Africa).This connects to our unit of children rights and responsibilities because it shows how many people have the rights to many things that they don’t have. I really feel sad for the children who were really going through this situation. They are saving money and working to survive while we are saving money and working to buy the newest electronics and games or jewelry and accessories. I really hope that we can save all the kids who are dying out there in Africa, and make them happy too.

Tolerance Post (Moral Education)

If you don’t know what tolerance is, then in this post I will be sharing the meaning of tolerance and in-tolerance and some examples of tolerance and in-tolerance. First of all, tolerance is when you show respect to people no matter how they look or even if they are different. An example of tolerance would be to play with people who have a different skin tone then you to be respectful and caring to somebody who might look odd to you because of a diagnosis they which they have. This is fine. You can be different because of a diagnosis or sickness that you have. It is up to other people to respect you. It is not your fault that you are different, in fact, everybody is different. In-tolerance is the exact opposite of tolerance. It means to judge people by their looks and make fun of them. This may not seem that bad for people who don’t have any diagnosis, but for people who do, this is just like bullying. It is especially annoying when you are being made fun of because of your look behind your back since you don’t know who is making fun of you, where they are making fun of you how they are making fun of you. Nobody wants this. We can stop this though! We just have to show respect and remember that being different is okay. Always be tolerant and never make fun of anyone.
