This week in 6D the students have to choose an art form and make something related to the art form that we chose. I chose 1950s modern architecture. I am currently working on a 3d model of the house that I will later make in real life (its not going to be a real house size. it’s going to be miniature).This is the building.
We have also been working on a giant dragon which we just finished and it looks great.
This is the dragon.
Our new unit is How We Express Ourselves. Which is fun because because we get to work on things like the things above. I still need to finish my house design and make it in real life but I think it will be fun.
Now that the exhibition is over and the schedule is normal again, I can go back to having the normal schedule with math, literacy and things for the unit of inquiry. This week we went to the make create collaborate, which is a thing that you make create and collaborate in. My favourite part is the kazoo that I made. A kazoo is a instrument that makes a buzzing noise when you bow into it. We also had a math test on volume!!! It was fun. After we learned about volume, we paper made hats that we had to know the amount of paper used and how much they cost to make. I call them math hats!!! My hat was a turkey hat. There was also a poem contest. Those are the things I remembered about the week.
This week for the PYPX we decided the layout of the board and we made things to put on it. I made a flow chart and a poster. I also printed out pictures which I cut out and outlined with black paper. The photos were from the interviews I went on. The photos were mostly pictures of the factories and plastic waste. This week was the first week with the collapsed schedule almost all classes were changed to exhibition except P.E. My group has finished most of this weeks goals and is almost ready to present we just need board to put our stuff on. THE END
This week I worked my PYP exhibition I mostly researched the dangers and chemicals in plastics which end up in fish. You might think that the plastic stays in the fishes stomach but the chemicals sink into the fishes skin tissues and we eat them while also eating the chemicals. Here is a list of chemicals and their effects.
- Doxins which cause cancer and death. As well as reproduction and development issues
- Phthalates which cause asthma, ADHD, breast cancer, obesity, type 2 diabetes, mental handicaps, neurodevelopmental issues, behaviour issues and autism
- Vinyl chloride causes liver cancer and death
- Ethylene which causes headaches, frostbite, dizziness, fatigue, lightheadedness, confusion and unconsciousness
- Chloride which causes cough, redness, sore throat, pain, nausea and vomiting
- Lead which causes blindness and lead poisoning
- Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) causes cancer, birth defects, diabetes and immune system abnormalities
That is why it is easier to raise fish in a controlled environment where they can’t eat plastic and don’t give us sickness or death.
Every March 14th there is a special day it is called pi day. Pi is a never ending never that we use to find the area if circles. Some cool thing have happened on pi day such as the battle of Ivry, pi day, the 29th president decided to be the first president to pay taxes and the rolling stones also moved to France to escape taxes. there is a lot more here is a link to a list https://www.onthisday.com/events/march/14 there is also a pi song.
Out class celebrated it by eating pie which was awesome and delicious. I ate apple pie which was very good. My conclusion is that pi day is interesting and had lots of events happen on the same day. Also pie taste good and you should listen to the pi song.
This week all of grade 6 did the work for the upcoming pyp exhibition. My group had three people in it and our topic is plastic in the ocean. We wrote our lines of inquiry and related all the key concepts and related concepts to our issue. We also did a pre assessment for math. The pre assessment was about data management, we had to make charts and answer questions. Those are my favourite parts of the week.
Today I learned about laser cutting and 3D printing. Both of these are amazing things that can revolutionise the world. They have both affected the world a lot here are some things they have done. 3D printers can do all kinds of stuff, such as making prothetic limbs or even organs. 3D printing can save lives and they have impacted the world.
Laser cutting is a new way to shape objects and make tools easier. It uses a laser to cut out objects easily and very accurate. You can use it to make many patens by burning the wood with the laser. It is great very great.
Thats all BYEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In class we did an experiment. It was Crystals!!!!!!!!!! We mixed borax with water and put some pipe-cleaners in them. Within 23 hours our pipe-cleaners were covered in crystals. My pipe-cleaner didn’t get covered in crystals because I didn’t mix it enough. All the crystals just went to the bottom of the jar, they were super hard to remove. I had to put soap in the jar, fill it with water, stir a lot then stab it repeatedly. So thats all….
Today we learned about science Facts and Misconceptions. I learned some new things like every year 8 spiders don’t go in your mouth and diamonds aren’t compressed coal. We also did a test to see what we knew i got ?/10 because I didn’t know which answer was for which question because I only wrote the question number and my answer. It was fun and I learned roughly 29 new facts. So that’s all today.
