Personal Project

JUNE 2018 PERSONAL PROJECT

 

My ideas are:

1: Science activities

2: Make some activities for the younger kids

 

My final decision is that I will… make some activities and give them to younger kids

 

My plan is to…  reflect on what I learned this year and make some activities and see what the younger kids know about these units.

 

I will keep my work / information…  a box in the classroom

 

My final ‘product’ or my aim I am working to achieve is… to have taught something about grade 4 to the younger kids.

 

Transdisciplinary Themes I am Working on:  

 

HOW WE EXPRESS OURSELVES: expressing ideas; creativity; music, drama, art, writing, poetry.

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

Being Innovators

Do you know what a innovator is? Well if you do have you ever tried being one? If you have done that as well than what did you do? Did you say no to all of these questions? Well if you did and want to say yes to all of these questions then keep reading to see what I did to be a innovator.

We were challenged to create a innovative, sensible, and useful with classroom items. Me and my friend Aleena created a pencil holder. I bet you are thinking that “well that really un original.” I disagree it has 2 layers the first one goes inside the second one. So you can always take the first layer out. It has a plus sign the top that separates it into four corners. The first one is for regular pencils, the second corner is four mechanical pens, the third corner is for pens, and the fourth corner is for erasers or if you prefer crayon.

If by this point you do not get what a innovator is it is someone that gathers things that are already invented to create something new that solves a problem and is useful.
