Our job was to empathize and find someone who has a problem and try to solve it. Then we had to plan our prototype. This was crucial during our maker’s space project. Here is my plan↙️

Light Painting🍉pt. 1

Hi readers,

Today I’m going to talk about what 4C has been doing in performing arts. Well, in our current unit is about dance, and it is nearly over. During this unit we were put into groups(Zara + Aidan)and we created some moves that we thought would go well with it. It took a lot of hard work, but in the end(uh, we are sort of in the middle?)we pulled it together. We are probably recording next week. I’m sooooooo excited!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EDIT/UPDATE: we finished our light painting! scroll down…..yeah……little more…..

Slime is a mixture of glue, coloring, activator, foaming soap, cornstarch and baby oil that forms into a clay-like, pokable, stretchable, soft and fluffy mix. There are many different types of slime 1. avalanche slime, 2, fluffy slime, 3. jiggly slime, 4. clear slime, 5. fishbowl slime, 6. crunchy/floam slime, 7. galaxy slime, 8. glossy slime, 9. bubble bath slime, 10. clay slime, 11. butter slime………and that’s just the beginning!(check the end of this post for slimes 1-11!)

Let’s play a game: close your eyes and tap the screen, under this⬇️

AVALANCHES✨!

Hello, readers!

I need to ask yall’ a question: “Have you ever heard of an avalanche?” Hmmm….I bet you have! Do you want to learn more? YES??? Well, you’re in luck, because my partners Selene, Anise and I have created a slide all about avalanches. HERE⬇️ is my slide!!

Time for my self-reflection!

In class, we were put in expert groups to study different types of natural disasters. Our group studied about avalanches and made this⬆️ slideshow! We used different sources and pictures to create this slides, as well as tons of practice! We each took a different driving question and make an individual slide for each driving question. We also used these…..snow-avalanche-vector-diagram-flow-down-sloping-surface-initiation-avalanches-usually-accelerate-rapidly-grow-36144872download

avalanche diagrams to grasp the main idea for our slides!

I enjoyed working with my partners because we worked cooperatively as a group, and also used our time efficiently. I think we could improve on staying on task since we were working outside and there were constant distractions.

These↗️ Screen Shot 2017-05-12 at 12.06.21 PM

are our M/C questions. As you can see(sorry it’s really blurry), 83% of the class got our question right. This shows that we explained this thoroughly so our fellow classmates to understand and allow that knowledge to really sink in. In the peer assessment sheets, we mostly got GOT IT!!, some NOT YET!! and  WOWWWW!!!. Something that kept popping up in each and every sheet was that we should ‘make it longer’. I agree, we were the first group and I think that the stress really got to us and we made it REALLY short. If we didn’t speak that fast I think we could make it a little bit longer and easier for our classmates to understand.

I  want to learn about more types of natural disasters and also work with new/different people and see how that goes!

⬆️ This quote is today’s QUOTE OF THE WEEK! We will start doing something called ‘quote of the week!’, so every week I will choose a quote that is meaningful to me, and share it with you guys.

SLLRs😎!

Hello, readers!

The SLLRs(student lead learning reviews) are on Friday and I’m super nervocited😜 (nervous+excited)! An SLLR is when a student shows their parent(s) what they have learned throughout the year, and reflect with their parents. I am planning to share 3 math activities, 2 literacy activities, 1 Chinese activity, 1 U.O.I activity……and so on. I’ll fill you in after the SLLR!

Thanks for reading,

⭐️G4 Camp

Hi, readers!

I haven’t seen you guys in a long time, but today I’m here to share the experience of the 3-day camp G4 went on! The camp was at Treasure Island️️, and we had lots of fun activities both on the beach and on the wetlands. One of my favorite activities was the ‘Surfing Relay’! Even though I’ve never surfed before, I still had a great time(though it got a bit sandy). Also, the “Game of Life” was really fun because it kind of was connected with our STP unit. For example, we were all animals, some were herbivores, omnivores nd carnivores!  I also enjoyed setting up the tents️↙️ because I felt like it was kind of like a mini home that I could organize.

I also want to talk about the ‘Potato Campers’! I know you’ll be wondering: “What the heck is potato campers?” In camp, we were put into groups, and our group name was the “Potato Campers'”! Our group leader Melissa guided us in several different games, helping us from the “Game of Life”⬆️ to super-cold showers…….

On Day 3, we used food scraps and Bo Kashi create compost! We had a mini-lesson from Lindsey(another group leader) about how Bo Kashi works and the ‘farm-to-table’ system. ↙️ This is Bo Kashi mixed with some of our food waste from day 1.

🌍STP Board Display📝

안녕하세요 readers!

         Today Caitlyn and I finished our STP board display! Our project was about one of the many food chains in the freshwater biome. Here is our poster⬇️:
Screen Shot 2017-03-24 at 12.01.30 PM

         Caitlyn and I spent a lot of time researching and an equal amount of time to make sure that our poster was as good as it could be! We included a triangle to show the main groups of animals to accompany the specific food chain. I’ll start with the main predator; crocodiles. Crocodiles are carnivores, so these meat-eaters live on a diet of fish, frogs, and crustaceans. Bears are also another main predator in the freshwater biome. Bears live on a diet of mainly fish and berries. Next, pikes. Pikes are a type of large fish that lives in the freshwater biome and eats smaller fish. Moreover, how ’bout plankton? There are two scientific types of plankton; phytoplankton and zooplankton. Phytoplankton is smaller and zooplankton is bigger and eats phytoplankton.
