The days before the the human body exam, we have practiced and studied very hard only for a important exam. We have looked at a lot of movies/videos about everything about the human body and the changes about the human body. We also did a lot of work and workbooks about the human body like the human body work book and the graphic organizer and all the work sheets we’ve finished and still working on for the exam. In the exam, you can’t use anything else to help you except the cheat sheet that we are and done working on, it is a maximum shaped and sized paper that you can take and write anything you want for example notes that can help you on the test. The test is 8 pages long (as the teacher told as) and you can only use the cheat sheet (as I told you) and a human body work bank in the projector that can help you with words you don’t know. There’s pretty much a lot of helping tools in the exam. It’s going to be a easy or a hard exam( your choice).
I’m sooo exciting because I get to bring my computer back home and in Summer Holiday… But before let me tell you something safe when you are online. When your online, you need to be really responsible in your social networking account for example Facebook, Skype, Twitter and other social networking. You have to know your privacy settings, if you want to be private then change the settings, it is your own choice to be private or not. And also you have to be careful how you communicate on a social network with your friends, family, and others, DON”T talk or communicate with someone you don’t really know or DON”T exactly know because if you do, the stranger will take or steal your info or comments and maybe something you say in Facebook to others. It is also important to not swear or say inappropriate word in a social network, it may hurt your friends, or other’s feeling’s and the person who invented the network will delete your account. So you Have to HAve to be good on a social network.
We visited the grade 9’s Civics Simulation, Simulation is that you pretend that your the real person onthe real thing, like people don’t have food and don’t have money and people that have difficult disabilies in the world. So we are pretending we have no arms and we need to wear on clothes and sit on a chair with no limbs. And use your weak hand to write and it is really really hard, so pretend that you have nothing connected to your body. That would make your life harder so it will take much more time than you do usually. My favorite Simulation was the cyber bullying because it teaches you to not believe in people n the internet and in the world. So we did this game where I need to take off my shoes and basically the grade 9’s put 6 pins on the floor and told me to walk through the pins with a jacket covering my face which is scary. Then I walk through the pins but when I finished and took off the jacket, I saw nothing on the floor. So now I know not to trust strangers.

During the easter holiday, I went to 6 cities in U.S.A. Sanfransicso, Sacramento, Seattle, Denver, Vail, Los Angeles.
I HAD FUN!!!
We went to South bay to dig our artifacts in the sand. It was really easy to find the artifacts but my artifact was really really really hard to put it back together because there was a lot of little cracked pieces. At first I don’t really know what it is because I can’t put them back together and know what it is. The artifact hunting day, i found my own artifact piece and nobody found theres that i found because it was hard to see. It was really fun!!!!
In class, we watched this movie called National Treasure Part 1. This Hollywood movie is related to our unit of inquiry, There’s action, mystery, and like a treasure hunting movie. We watched half of the movie and I would like to tell you 5 great parts that happened in this movie.
The good and the bad guys are trying to get the treausure that got hidden in SOMWHERE IN Earth.
The good guys got chased by the bad guys.
The bad guys didn’t use clues to find the treasures, they were following the good guys who are working hard finding the clues.
The clue the good guys have is called the “Declaration of Independance”.Benjamin franklin wrote the “Declaration of Independance”
The bad guys got the “Decloration of Independance”
Sounds like a good movie right? watch it IF YOU HAVE TIME

We are starting a unit about Hong Kong’s past, and we are playing this artifact game by guessing where is the photo taken, where is it from, and how old is it. We have been playing in class about for 2 or 3 weeks every morning and it is fun guessing the photo. I chose this artifact for you to guess what is it, where is it from and how old is it: You can play it with you’re family too. Guessing is thinking what picture is it. Interpreting is same as guessing but not too much.
