Asbury International

Asbury International, a charity that helps the poorest of the poor, or at least those who live in sub-divided homes.

Side Note:

Sub-Divided homes are homes tiny apartments that a family has to share with another family. People usually rent these homes because they can’t afford other ones, therefore, sub-divided homes are the only place they can afford. Sub-divided homes are basically one room homes.

 

Friday, November 24, 2017, grade 5 classes 5A,5B and 5D all went to one of Asbury International’s headquarters. We went there to find out about people who live in sub-divided homes cope. We also went there to give the people gifts like vegetables, fruits and toilet paper.

we discovered a lot of things while we were there and how lucky we were. I felt sorry.

Now afterwards when we arrived at school we were told to answer these questions and put them on our blog. These were the questions and my answers:

Q: What is the most important furniture for you? (Name three items)

A: Bed, Shower and Fridge

Q: What are the most important electrical appliances for you? (Name
three items)

A: lights, T.V and aircon

Q: Is it available to place all the above items in a subdivided unit?

A: Yes, because when I went to the subdivided houses they were able to fit a lot of things so I believe I can too.

Q: Imagine that if you live in the subdivided unit, how to make use of the space to place those kinds of items? What is your tradeoff?

A: I would probably get a lot of storage cupboards and get a lot of things that are able to fold. I would also pay for the second best-subdivided homes if I could afford it.

Q: What are the differences between your home and the subdivided unit?

A: My home is definitely bigger, I have more space and have more upgraded electric items. I also don’t have to use stairs to get to my house.

Q: How do you feel about this visiting experience?

A: I feel relieved that I don’t have those kinds of living conditions. I’m also more grateful for what I have.

Q: What would you do to serve our community to be a better place?

A: I’d probably maybe every 2 months go to the wet market and buy some food for those who need it.

Well, that’s all from me. Bai!

 

 

 

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.
