Exhibition Reflection

by on May.14, 2014, under Portfolio, UOI

We finished Exhibition a  while ago and I still remember most of what happened . First we practiced our version of roar  and that was not really good because I stood at the edge of the risers  and kept on falling off cause the person next to me was pushing me off! After that we showed the little kids our stands after that we fixed up stands if we had to then we presented some more finally were done and we had to go but after 5.pm or so we would have to come back and present to the parents.I had mixed feeling about that because we could show the things we worked of for a lot of weeks but you could mess up badly and feel extremely embarrassed. So once you were done waiting around you would have to go to school and prepare and once the parents came in you would have to be finished go to the atrium  and watch the process video after that parents would look around at stand but almost half the people from the top of the atrium came to us because ours was right outside the door plus some groups had to share performances and after those performances we had to go to the roar performance so my group had to run around a lot.After the exhibition (the next day) we would have to do a lot reflecting on exhibition  how it turned out how you feel about it. So after the exhibition I think it was one of the funnest and creative project I have ever done

On The Move Reflection

by on Dec.11, 2013, under Portfolio, UOI

What on the move taught me was a lot of reasons why people move and how they change and other things like that. How this unit changed me was now I can identify what is the set up of a migrating story. What I think was the most funniest (or is going to be ) is the living museum because we practice and people going to watch us and we are going to have a great time. What I think was the easiest thing was when we got to listen to the story because we just sat there and wrote info and watched cool story’s. What I think was the hardest was when we had to prepare for the living museum since we had to write info interview and lots of hard work. What I think we should do for next year is to start the researching a little bit sooner.

Electricity Reflection

by on Oct.30, 2013, under Elementary, Portfolio, UOI

During this UOI I learned how electricity works, what atoms are,  and who discovered  electricity. I found this part of the unit to be quite helpful and interesting. What I liked was when we where doing testing with the electrical circuits and making toys.

I also enjoyed the field trip to the Panasonic museum.  It was high tech and looked really cool,  they had good factual information, and other  things that I could touch with my hands to help me learn. What I disliked was the deadline of the electricity brochure. I found it to be very stressful to work under a time constraint.  I also found the website activity to not be very useful because we were already half way through the unit and already knew most of what the website was teaching us.

What I learned was what an atoms is made up of. Atoms have electrons which are negatively charged and protons which are positively charged and neutrons which are not charged at all.  Another thing I learned was how circuits work.  They work properly when there is an closed circuit. So  that electrons can flow through the circuit to create electrical power.

What I found interesting was who discovered electricity. Michael Faraday was the person who discovered electricity he found out about electromagnetism  by wrapping a paper cylinder with wire. He connected the coil to a galvanometer, and then moved a magnet back and forth inside the cylinder. then discovered magnetism.

The activity’s that we did during the unit was 1 making a light bulb light (carl made the bulb light the fastest) then we wrote down what we discovered. Then we made electricity brochure where we had to research about electricity and use text features. Now our last activity was making toys I was making a plane and we recorded it.

Now that the unit is over I still have some questions like what was the first house that ran on electricity? or who discovered electrons? And what thing that I use to not know but now I do is who discovered electricity  that now I know is Michael Faraday and where did electricity come from? Which comes from coal and its also natural. My suggestion for next year is MORE TIME FOR BROCHURE  AND more creating!!!

Agents for Change Reflection

by on Oct.30, 2013, under Portfolio, UOI

I think the Agents for Change UOI taught me that action starts small then becoming bigger. What was fun about this unit was the videos that we got to watch. My favorite one was the Ted Talk. This video was about lollipop moments in life. I found that to be very useful.

What I did not like was that we didn’t learn about Gandhi and Martin Luther King. I feel these people are important because they were real life Agents for change.  Also we didn’t have a lot of time during this unit so I found that to be discouraging. However, it was still really fun. What I still wonder  about is who has made the biggest change in the world so far?

What challenged me was the action poster. It challenged me because it took me a long time to think about what action means to me.  What I found easy was like reflecting like this. My suggestion for next year is that the students get to learn about people who changed the world  drastically.
