This week we played 6D in the semifinals for handball intramural. We won the first shift and the second shift but some how on the tired shift we lost. It was a 2 point game 18- 16.
This is a video that i made in class about how pingos are formed.
I have started a Youtube channel to show videos that I hav made in class. Right know all I have is 3 movie or book trailers that I made. I am hoping to start posting at least video a week school related or home. A video from my Youtube channel is on the side bar to the right.
To tune in I made a mind map to show all the possibilities that could show “the life I live is determines by my family’s past experiences”. I decided that the best way to do that is by making a family tree.
To make a family tree I was going to find mu family genealogy book if I it was not in storage but if it is I am going to send emails to all of my grandparents and great grandparents. I will ask them if they can tell me the names date of birth of their mom, dads, grand, parents and great grandparents. Once I had sent all of the emails I realized it would not show my families past experiences and decisions. So I thought about lots of big things in my life for example sports, school and being overseas.
I asked my mom why did we come overseas she said because her mom/ my grandma always wanted to travel but could not because she had a lot of kid and back then traveling was not as popular. So my grandma all way told my mom that when she would get older my mom was going to travel. This is how my family moved to Hong Kong.
Sorting out my information was not very hard because all that I needed to do was decide what is relevant and what is irrelevant. Fore example all of the people that I asked tolled me about what college they went to and what there job is, but I did not need any of that in formation so I got rid of it.
I think initially only making a family tree was a big mistake and next time I need to make sure that I answer my question directly.
We have finished tuning in to where we are in place and time so now we are starting where we are starting how the world works. It is about function of cities countries and civilzation. It is also about how natural things lie eco systems and environments work.
After reading Iqbal I am more aware of what is happening in the world. Because I always thought carpets were made only by machines so now when ever I look at my Indian carpet in my house I start to winder who made it. One thing I have realized is that the kids are being forced to make carpets think they or normal and unaware that there are lots of people who are not being forced to make carpets. It might be a good thing that they do not know about the rest f the world so they don’t feel worse about them selves. it could also be a bad thing that they do not know about the rest of the world because they do not know there right and will not stand up for there selves.
Our new unit of inquiry is where we are in place and time. It is about history. This will be a important unit because our exhibition is going to be about where we are I place and time. The exhibition is a group project at the end of the year. We get our groups by what we are interested in. We are going to tune into where we are in place and time then we will do two other units and finally we will have the exhibition.
Today is the first game of the 6 nations rugby tournament. It is one of the biggest rugby tournaments. The six teams competing in the tournament are England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. I think France is going to win. It is a very exciting tournament. Who do you think is going to win?
