Design Project

Design Project

This week I continued my design project about making a structure in minecraft and made a blueprint. We have to make it in a fifty metre by fifty metre border and decorate the outside of the structure with a garden, courtyard, ect. The blueprint contains only stuff about the structure and in the structure. We are doing this because we are learning about volume, area and perimeter. We needed to make a draft of our structure and now I’m making the big blueprint which can be used for the minecraft stage.

Comparing Advertisements

Comparing Advertisements

Yesterday we compared two advertisements from the same company and my group compared ads of Coca Cola. We checked all the good persuasive techniques used for the ads. The first one has people are drinking Coke together, there are fun pictures in the background and the people are toasting. It’s like they are enjoying a good bottle of coke, everyone’s smiling, and last but not least they are only using the coke colours so it stands out. In the second one the woman looks happy, it shows it’s good after basketball and it’s kind of about the Olympics. The expression on her face is happy and they are using red and white so they know it’s coke! All in all we think that the first one’s better because they are showing the coke bottle clearly. Also it shows lots of people drinking coke happily. You can share with other people, after all sharing is caring!

Filming

Filming

Yesterday we learned about filming. We learned about different angles you could put the camera in. For example point of view shot and bird’s eye view and reverse angle. We also learned about the rule of thirds (kind of like where you should position the people on the screen) and we also learned how to use iMovie it was really cool because we could reposition clips and titles and use green screen as well! You could add sound clips to it and edit as you go.

Flower Fair

Flower Fair

On Tuesday the 24th I went to the school Flower Fair and it was very fun. I really loved buying the stuff like a microphone/speaker and prank soap etc etc, it was very cool, I loved playing some games like what I call jump for the gummy worm and also a game called “chickens can fly!”, “chickens can fly!” was quite fun, it’s a game where you throw stuffed chickens into the fake barn windows and you get toys after you run out of chickens.

Poster!!!

Poster!!!

Today me and some my classmates made a poster, just a disclaimer, all the places and phone numbers are actually not anyone we know. Our unit was how we express ourselves. We had three choices, money raised is a puppy saved for the S.P.C.A. , Vote for Me , And no plastic for the flower fair. We chose Money raised is a puppy saved. It was quite fun it also was very exciting. Our target audience was pet lovers in the school so we all want to help the S.P.C.A.(Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). I think that pet lovers will want to buy from the “garage sale”.I think we mostly used pathos and also a little bit of logos.

4B Amazing Musical Race

4B Amazing Musical Race

Hello, today’s blog post is about our 4B spotlight. I think the song went very well and everything was super fun and exciting. I think the other classes could do better but it was so fun. What went well was all of the video of all the contestants and the hosts in a video. For people who don’t know what the amazing race is, it’s a race where if you complete a challenge too late you may be eliminated from the race or if it’s the last round the last team will be eliminated this play was on a wednesday

Mega Ice

Mega Ice

On December fourteenth we went to Mega Ice at Mega Box because we finished the first term of school. At first I went along the wall because there was no chairs to skate with and about five minutes after that  I went to one of my two best friends, Luca. He tried to help me learn how to skate and soon I learnt! I was so happy! Skating also felt a little like skiing. While skating I met with my sister three to five times. We raced sometimes and she told me she managed to beat her friend in racing and her friend did “fast skating training”. Before I managed only to skate using a chair.

Newton’s Laws of Motion

Newton’s Laws of Motion

Isaac Newton was a very well known scientist and he managed to figure out the laws of motion:1:An object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest unless an unbalanced force acts on it. You probably don’t think of it this way but if you are in a moving car you are moving too.So if the car suddenly stops then you continue moving forward.So in the example in the top right of the picture your seatbelt will stop you from falling over and if the skis aren’t tied on properly they will fall forward.2: An object that has an unbalanced force acting on it will accelerate in that direction of force. Even when you are sitting down force acts on you, gravity tries to make you go down and the earth tries to make you go up so they cancel each other out. If you are on a sled and going down hill you will fall but that’s because they are working together gravity pushing you against the slope and the earth pushing you down the slope. Friction is how and why if you toss a pebble on anything it slows down and stops. 3:Forces always appear in equal and opposite pairs. So if you open a door the door is pushing against you but the hinges make it easier to move and creates friction at your feet.

Maker Design Challenge

Maker Design Challenge

Today I’m making a blog post about the maker design challenge I did last week,we made a mast, a rudder, a hull and a marble stock(Cargo stock). It made it all the way pretty fast even though a very small part of it got soaked(hull).It had a plastic outline of the hull, rudder and sail so it could be quite waterproof so it would not sink, we had limited materials(A4 paper, tape, glue, staples, cardboard, 1 marble and plastic bag material. That’s it!) but we tried! The thing that went best was the Rudder and\or the mast. The thing I found most difficult is trying to get everyone to get their minds to this. We could add more sails, make sure it doesn’t  get even partially soaked and make a better marble stock. I enjoyed trying to make it as well as seeing it float. This is my group’s blogs: Max Alec
