20 hour project 3 point shooting

My 20 hour project is focusing on a goal for 20 hours and it takes about a month. My 20 hour project was shooting three pointers in basketball. It has been quite fun working on shooting three’s but it is quite tiring shooting for hours. My plan for next week is going to research how I can get more power in my shot and I am trying to get a higher percentage from the  3 point line and I just need to keep practicing. So far I have been working on my 20 hour project for 5 hours. And it has been great!

Design Cycle

I used shooting a basketball for the design cycle. First I imagined Where I would shoot my basketball. Then I designed my form of shot. Then I planned how it would go in. After that I shot the ball. Finally, I evaluated how I could make my shot better.

Explorer Ferdinand Magellan

I have enjoyed working and collaborating with my group so far. I also liked designing the ship with my team and creating the structure. I learned about all the things that Ferdinand Magellan did in his life. I also learned how to overcome bad situations and come up with solutions.

The Finals

The Finals

The NBA finals is about to start. You are on the Chicago Bulls and you are going against the Toronto Raptors. Your heart is racing, you are super nervous. Game 1 is in the United arena of Chicago. The fans are screaming and shouting. You go onto the court. You can feel your body shaking as the whistle blows and you almost faint. But you try to find your rhythm. First Kyle Lowry gets the ball and shoots a 3.  Swish! You’re down by 3.

You get the ball and drive the ball down the court and finish with a layup. The Raptors then shoot and you get the rebound.  But then your foot falls hard on the wood. You are injured and your coach subs you off.  You are angry that you can’t keep playing.  The game ends and you lose by 10 points.

You recover from your injury and you hope to tie the series 1-1 in the United arena. You start off flaming in the 1st quarter and your team leads by 7 at quarter time. By half time you are tied with the Raptors.

The Raptors start off strong in the third quarter. They were leading by 9 in  quarter time. You come back and are now only 4 points down with 3 minutes to go. You shoot a 3.  Swish! Now you are down by 1 point.  Then, Demar DeRozan drives down the lane and slam dunks. You could hear a pin drop.  Now the Raptors were up by 3 with 1:10secs to go.  You pass to Dwayne Wade and he slam dunks! The fans go wild and now you’re only  down by 1. Then the Raptors fumble the ball you maintain possession and you call timeout with 10 seconds on the clock.  They give you the ball and you slam dunk now the fans are cheering harder than they ever have cheered. And with one second left Kyle Lowry shoots a 3 hits the rim and goes in. The fans leave the game in tears and are feeling melancholy. The Raptors have won the game and it is a 2-0 series.

The next game you shut the Raptors down and the Bulls are up by 20 in the first half. You keep tacking on points and the Raptors are down by 30 in the 4th quarter.  But the Raptors get a 20-0 scoring run and now you are only up by 10. You fake a three drive in and slam dunk. The fans in the air Canada Center fell quiet. The Bulls take this one, so now it is a 2-1 series.

The next game is also in the Air Canada Centre. You get the ball at the beginning of the first quarter and give it to Rajon Rondo.  He slams it home!  The fans back in Chicago scream and cheer!  You set the tone early. You’re up by 16 at the half.  You keep pounding the Raptors hard and now you’re up by 35 at the end of the match.  It is a tied 2-2 series.

Now you’re back in Chicago. You are desperate for a win.  Your team starts off strong but the Raptors are still holding on.  You take a 3.  Swish!!  You’re up by 3 at halftime.  The Raptors come right back in the third quarter and regain the lead.  In the fourth quarter, the Raptors don’t stop there.  They win this game by nine points!  Now the series is 3-2, with Raptors in the lead.

The next game is at your home ground you are trembling with fear. The fans however are yelling and cheering the bulls on. Half time and Bulls up 50 and the bulls keep scoring and scoring and scoring. This game goes to the bulls by 75 points. You are feeling strong about game 7.

The final game in the Air Canada Center you thing that surely you would throw up. But as the whistle blew you didn’t and you played hard and aggressive. By quarter time you were only up by 1 point. In the locker room the bulls are confident.


Then it was the beginning of the 2nd quarter. You are confident but suddenly your team misses a lot of shots and now you’re down by 10. Then you score 6 points and now raptors only up by 4 at halftime. It now the 3rd quarter and then your team gets baskets to drop and Raptors still match your intensity.


And you’re up by 1 in the beginning of the 4th quarter. The 4th quarter starts. This is where your emotions break out. Now 1 minute to go you’re up by one and the raptors have possession and DeMar Derozan posts up Jimmy Butler he shoots and he scores over Butler. With 10 seconds to go you have the ball and you are down by 1 and then you have the ball 3-2 you release the ball at the free throw line 1-0 then the ball rolls off the hoop and the Toronto Raptors win the NBA finals. You go home frustrated.


Book review on A Week In The Woods

I  recommend this book  because it is adventures and action packed and you get to feel the characters emotions. I recommend this book to People who  love reading about peoples lives and the challenges they face. And What they do to over come the problems. I would give this book a four star because it is adventures and emotional . i did not give it a 5 star because only 30 pages in the book where when he was actually in the woods.

I hope you enjoyed my book talk
