Piano

Imagine
– How many times I need to play?
–  What song to play first, which song is more important?

Design
– After you know what to play, for example, scale first then then you play others songs
– Get out the books or papers 

Create

Evaluate

– Try to do better at it for example, if you mastered right hand try to learn the left hand

 

Pong’s Zip Line Reflection

We are starting a new super Unit! So we did our first activity, it was about get Pong the ping pong ball to the other side without pong falling out the product and you have to make it out of materials that are given in a limited time. Read the reflection for more!

Backward-Looking What problems did you encounter while you were working on this challenge? How did you solve them?
We encounter a problem when we were trying to stick the the duck tape on the washer, skewer and the cup at the same time.Another problem we encounter was we had to tie the floss to the skewer.  

Inward-Looking

What was satisfying to you or frustrating to you during the challenge?
What made me frustrating was when the duck tape was the duck tape kept on falling of and then the skewer moved if the duck tape moved.

Outward-Looking

In what ways did your product meet or not meet the goals of the challenge?
Our product did not meet 1 of goals. That goal was getting pong on to the other side, because there was too much friction.

Forward-Looking

What would you change if you have a chance to do this challenge over again?
We would  make it out of washers on the top to connect to the zip line so that there is not as much friction.

Feelings: What were some of the different feelings you experienced during the challenge?
Feelings I had when our product was done was happy and proud, but when we tried it on the big zip line, it was funny because it was wasn’t moving.

 

 

 

 

Explorers!!!!

A few weeks ago, we had this super unit called Explorers, I chose the explorers named Lewis and Clark so as Christine, An and Manabi. We researched about Lewis and Clark for weeks then we made a plot ad wrote our script. On May, 31 we preformed our play. The skit was about Lewis and Clark going on there journey, we also grouped up with An and Manabi, there group is Sacagawea. What I am proud about the skit is that my group spoke loud enough. On scale to 1-4 I would choose 4 because we worked really well together. Another I admire their skit is Marco Polo, they have good dialogue.

HS Dance

Yesterday we learned a dance named “It’s Good To Be Alive, Right By Now”. It was in the Hs gym, I really think that it was kind of fun, but also awkward at 2-3 pm because people could walk right past by, and start watching us dance. The High schoolers made the moves really easy for me to understand there was only 7 moves, but they were repeated.


This is the practice
