Reflection For Science

One thing I learned from the science unit, ‘Ecosystems’ was that the keystone species of an exosystem is everything. I learned what a keystone animal is and how it affects every other animal around it. I also learned what the tropic cascade is. One thing that sparked my interest was how much we as humans are affecting these ecosystems and how big of a role we play. I found it interesting on how we can destroy, or fix the environment, its up to us. I would like to explore questions on the anatomy of animals

Structures and Forces

How do we use scientific thinking to learn about the interaction between the natural world and us?

To learn more about the natural world and ourselves, we need to use scientific thinking. There are many ways we could use scientific thinking to learn and discover more about the natural world and us as well. We can do things like use experiments to test different types of buildings and how that building can withstand things that the natural world throws at us, for example, a typhoon, or a tsunami. We can also test the different natural disasters that the natural world has to make sure our designs and our products are safe, for example, a waterproof phone…. the interaction between the natural world (rain/thunderstorm) and us the phone.

How did you use science?

In this unit, we did a lot of research and experiments and that helped us develop our knowledge of structures and forces. We had to research things like how does this certain factor effect this factor, we also had to do many experiments on how if we change this factor how would this other factor react? Or what would happen? We learned many things over what gravity is and how it affects your structure to how to strengthing your structures ( eg different types of beams ). Also, learn how the different types of materials can greatly affect the durability of your structure.

How did you improve as a learner?

I can improve myself as a learner in many ways, I, one could improve greatly on working better in a group, with people I DONT know. I could have also been a bit more productive with my research, I could have gone to good educational websites instead of looking at websites just on google, it will save me a lot of time and my research will be more kid-friendly and valid. I do think I managed my time well because I did get all of my research and data done and not time, I also did some at home. I also finished my report and I even had time to spare.

Reflection on the Giver Unit

  1. We should conform to the wishes of others when you feel there wishes and morals are ethically correct or at least in a good place.
  2.  The Giver altered my mind and my outlook on society in many ways. It taught me that sometimes you have to break the rules to do something that you think is right, you should never doubt yourself and you should trust yourself.
  3. I could develop on my PEE paragraph in several ways, One, I could use better language, I could enhance my language use to have a deeper and more profound piece of work.

Meaningful Action with Servicie

Whilst going to the E-farm for my action and service, I learned many things. One, I learned how aquaponics work. I learned how the closed cycle works and how you can reuse and reduce water. I also learned how to plant corn seeds and how to garden and pull out roots. We also made a huge fire which kept on burning for the rest of the field trip, we made this out of wood and dry leaves. This taught us the many ways of decomposition and the different types of fire starters. I really enjoyed the gardening factor of the field trip because I liked getting my hands dirty for the greater good. I liked the feeling of the damp soil against my fingertips.

Uke Assesment: Freight Train

Here is my assessment

:

How is recording the same and different compared to the original song? What were your reasons behind your decisions?

In my opinion the recording I did of ‘Up On The House Top’ was a lot better than the ‘Original Song’ I feel like in the old recording, I did spend a lot of time refining and tweaking the original audio until I got it right, the reason for this is that the old one had fewer components and fewer elements to it, whereas the one we are doing now, has a lot more components that take more time and effort, all in all, its harder. In the old uke audio, the only thing we had to include was voice, drumming and the uke. But in this one, we also had to include another electronic instrument. For my old audio, it was all cut and clean from start to finish, but for my new one, the start, starts and ends messy but everything else is perfectly on beat.
There was much difference between my recording and the original song, and my recording was a lot slower, The beat was very even compared to the original were as the beat was more scattered. For example, my song was more like
“freight Train I Freight Train I Rolling So Fast I
but the original song was more like
Freight TrainI FreightTrain I Rolling soFast I
My song also sounded less ‘country like’ the original song was very country like and it had banjoes and it reminded me of an old wild west, but mine is more modern, with its slow beat and its very clean cut. It also has a piano which kind of ruins the vibe, but it still sounds good. The reason I did the piano was that its an easier instrument to play and distinguish. The thing about the piano was that I could not get all of the keys to match the uke, so it sounded a little bit off. I also felt like the drummer ruined the vibe because it did not match the style of the song and it did not match the piano easier, all in all, I think I could have made my work a lot better.

How did your music classes prepare you for this assignment? 

Mr. O’toole helped us a lot in the process of helping us make the best song possible. He spent a long time teaching us the best ways to do different things. He showed us how to change the beat of your song, if you played your song and you were not on the beat, then he showed us a way to edit it. He also showed us how to use the drummer tool and how to edit it. He also gave us a lot of time to prepare, he gave us a lot of trust and responsibility and let us decide for our selves how to use our time wisely. I feel like next time, he could have taught us more about the actual uke and how to use the strumming patterns and the basics, this would have helped a lot of the newer people and not waste too much of their time. I also think that while giving us independence is a good thing, too much of it is bad, a lot of people were not as on task as they could have been. I also think he could have given us some videos or even taught us about different tricks on how to use the electronic instruments, I didn’t know how to use them before I ASKED. He could have also handed out a sheet full of different strum patterns that we could have used with our song.

Unité 1: Parlez-vus français?

For my first French unit, we learned the basics of French, how to introduce and talk about yourself to others.

How can I use my knowledge of English to learn French?

Science English and French have basically the same alphabet, its easy to try and say it out loud. There are also many words that are similar, so you can guess the word by the sound. Also, most europian languages are based on phonemes, so it’s easy to try and sound it out.

How do I introduce myself in French?

First, I would say  I speak French or if you speak French: Oui! Je parle le francais.

Second, I would tell him/her my name: Je m’appelle Eva

Third, I would say my nationality: Je suis, hongkongaise

Forth, I would say my age : J’ai douze

and birthday:  C’et le quatorze février. And much much more.

Languages are linked to one another in many different ways, they can be linked through a structure, sound, grammar, and pronunciation. But different languages in different regions have different similarities.

Does learning a new language make my mother tongue stronger?

Possibly, if your mother tongue relates to the language your learning then yes, for example, if my mother tongue is English and I am learning French, they are related so french could strengthen my mother tongue’s grammar and structures, but if my mother tongue is English and the language that I am learning is Chinese then it wouldn’t improve my English because they are two totally different languages.
