Generate-Sort-Connect-Elaborate

สวัสดีจากด้านอื่น ๆ !S̄wạs̄dī cāk d̂ān xụ̄̀n « !

(hello from the other side! in Thai)

Hello from the other side my fellow virtual subscribers!

Now I’m guessing most of you readers out there don’t know theGenerate-Sort-Connect-Elaborate strategy is so before I tell you what i did with this i’m going to tell you the steps to it. Ok so imagine if your teacher puts all of your classmates in different groups, then she gives you and your group an opened ended question where all of you have to present all the possible answers and connections on a piece of paper neatly. Now it’s hard to cooperate sometimes in groups and make things look neat, but if you use the Generate-Sort-Connect-Elaborate strategy then you’ll have no problem cooperating and making your work look neat. Generate, first you and your group members should generate ideas on post-it-notes.Now when your done that you can then sort, you and your groups can decide categories and if you have any of the same ideas on the post-it-notes then just choose one to use.Connect, now you can connect different ideas together if  their similar,even from different groups.I’m guessing that some of you readers out there don’t know what elaborate is, well elaborate means to present it on a piece of paper and by that i mean paste all of your categories and name them on a piece of paper. That’s it! Finally finished! Now what i’ve also guide you through is the steps of what me and my teammates(Sarah and Finn) did! You can see the picture below and  our Generate-Sort-Connect-Elaborate was kinda messy, but it was fine because our teacher didn’t mind.

Well that’s all for now virtual readers! Bye

THE 3RD LAW!!! (Rated Really Boring for Those Who Those Who Don’t Like Science)

مرحبا  marhabban

(Hey there in Arabic)

First of all I would like to point out that THE 3RD LAW is actually Newton’s third law of motion and that you will now be reading about science! Be warned that if you are not a fan of science then you will certainly be bored reading this.

Okay so this week my class inquired into Newton’s third law of motion.For every reaction there is a equal and opposite reaction.Now when the class was done inquiring into Newton’s third law of motion it led to some questions.Now don’t get mad at me but I don’t remember all the questions but I remembered one of them. If we raise the stand higher will the reaction force be greater.Now I remember that one because I was one of those people who inquired into that question.The reason I say I was one of them was because others participated in different questions. Now I had to work in a group of 4.My teammates were Ben,Zara and Elizabeth. Ben and Zara were the data collectors , Elizabeth was the one who set up the area and I was in charge of measuring the reaction force.Now as usual we always had to come up with a hypothesis.You can look at my hypothesis below,and trust me the data below is reliable because we tried it like 5 times!on the piece of writing below you will be able to see  sketch note.That will explain the science behind it.I am not going to write here because I already drew it out for you! Also you will have to see the conclusion of our experiment below because I am just too lazy to write it for you,also this blog post is getting a bit too long.

White Hat:I learned that every reaction has an equal and opposite reaction.

 

More SCIENCE!!!

 

Åh min Gud!

(Oh my God! in Danish)

Oh My God! I can’t believe you’d actually want to read this! I mean all i’m talking about is science! and this is just going to waste your time!Well it’s your choice I guess but don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Okay so last week our class wondered if a heavier object or a lighter object and you can see below what my guess was.( The guess is the hypothesis). We decided we’d answer the question by experimenting with inertia carts. I had to work with a group to answer the question.You will be able to see how we experimented in my sketch note in the document above. Ashley,Anise and Nate were in my group.Nate was helping us record the data while Anise and Ashley were the ones who set up the area and pushed the inertia cart.I was the one who measured the distance the inertia cart travelled. After all the testing we finally got the answer.Now i’m not going to tell you what the answer was because you can just see from the document below.

Yellow Hat: I enjoyed this example of my learning because I really felt like I contributed to the task.

White Hat:I learned that Newton’s second law of motion  was that 

Falling Objects?

Haigh!

(hi in Irish)

Hey you guys last week me my class had an experiment because we were wondering if a heavier object will have to fall faster or a lighter object will fall faster. We had to make a hypothesis (a educational guess) before we tested it out. Below you will be able to see my hypothesis and data that I collected. Only me and another classmate thought that the objects will fall at the same time.

Thanks for reading you guys!

Blue Hat:I enjoyed organising my ideas this way because it is neat and it is an easy way for me to look at my data.

White Hat: I learned how to create sketch notes and how drag is the force that pushes things upwards.
