We had an animal research project and I did it on Mako Sharks! First I got a book about Mako Sharks from the library, then after reading the book I used Pebblego and World book online and read through other sources. Secondly, while I was researching I wrote and bookmarked the source to make the bibliography at the end and not cheat because it’s somebody else’s source. I had to write a full report and make a powerpoint. I drew and printed of pictures of different things about Mako Sharks.
First we presented to the 3 year olds and we made it simple and easy to read for them because they were too young for tough words, then we presented to the second graders and they could understand a lot at their age so I spoke in proper words and they were focused. Then 2 days later we presented to the seventh graders and we had to speak in big adult words and they were impressed by my work and at the end of that I was proud of myself. The easy part was presenting to the seventh and second graders because they were actually focusing and not fidgeting around unlike the 3 year olds!
I learned that life is going to get harder and harder when I grow up eventually. What I liked was that I got to make a project myself and learn more new things. Next time I could make a model of the ecosystem. The thing that was easy was that we could research from many websites that relates to our topic, and the thing that was hard was that I researched for so long in 2 days.
I think we did this project to learn more details about living things in our world. I think this will impact my life that I should protect our ecosystem and move away if I see a Mako Shark in the ocean!!Mako Shark (1)-2296cj
