The exhibition process was the most interesting thing that had ever happened. The first day was such a blast! we made posters that had our group name, but when the days were passing by, things started to change. We started to dig deeper in our exhibition, that was a thing that i knew that was gonna happen. But it became something serious because if I did not get enough info about my topic then I could not write my report. So the rest of exhibition we were working on our research and info reports. The day that we were going to present the whole grade 5 went to festival city and prepared for our presentation. And after all the presenting we had an interview about our exhibition, and that was the last thing in exhibition.
This is my link to my SLC slide show…
In exhibition, I had some up-sides and down-sides, and the thing I enjoyed the most is researching because I get to learn new things everyday, but the most thing that sucked is that in my group sometimes can be serious and be on task, but sometimes they can be goofing around when we all have things to do, and another struggle we have is that we never heard from our expert yet, and didn’t hear from him/her.The thing that I am really looking forward to is when we present because i get to see how much hard work my group and I did on exhibition.
in book week we did a lot of activities, but my favorite is when we dressed up as our favorite book character, but we were also doing D.E.A.R every day when we were in school!
In my group we are talking about our topics and what we can
do to work in the exhibition, in my group we had debates and
diffrent things to say, so our group is going well!
In school we went to see the projects from grade 7 and i saw what they did to make people come to their project, they had some sort of activities to make people engaged and entertained, they also made their project look neat and organized so the people will think its a good presentation. I now can use the things they used for my future presentations.
Before camp i had some expectations, i was thinking that all of the showers would be cold, but i was wrong, another expectation i had is that Jacobs ladder would be easy, but i was so wrong, when i was trying to climb the ladder it kept moving and moving and i only reached to third step.
When I hopped on the bus I knew that this was going to be an adventure, when I went in the bus I heard my heart pumping so fast I could hardly breath, I felt nervous and excited at the same time, this is the first time i’m away from my parents that long. In camp i did activities like kaiaking and snorkeling, but the most challenging one is Jacob’s ladder, it broke my body. Jacobs ladder broke my bones, and when I was trying to climb, the ladder kept shaking and it couldn’t stop moving.
When we did our portraits i learned diffrent techniques to make our portraits, the first technique i learned is shading, i learned that if we push hard on the pencil it will make a dark shade, but if we push light on the pencil it will make a lighter shade of color on the portrait. The second technique i learned is how to make the hair look natural, we make it look natural by not coloring the inside in one way, because if we do that it looks like i have a helmet on my head, and the third technique i learned is how to make the head shape, first we print a picture and then we colored behind the page we took a picture with then we colored with black oil pastels, and then we put the picture above a white piece of paper then add a paper clip to the two pieces of paper, then we start to out-line our face until we added all the details and the white piece of paper will have all the details and your face. When we were doing the project i had something that i was thinking that would improve the portrait a bit, the thing that i wanted to change was my shading because i thought that some parts were dark when they weren’t supposed to be.
