Swimming Underwater game

Instruction:

  1. First, the coins are being thrown into a particular area, which teams will then later collect the coins and put the coins in the team’s basket.

2. The polo balls are distributed to different groups and groups will need to make sure the team protects the polo ball.

3. The colorful balls will be thrown into the middle which will encourage teams to score points by throwing the colorful ball into other team’s goal.

4. When the whistle blows, the game will now begin.

5. After the match ends, teams will move to their buckets and count how many coins are in the bucket.

The teams will also need to make sure to count up how many points they have scored and needs to make sure if the polo ball is in the rings.

 Introduction:

This game contains many specific elements. Such as an invasion game, where teams have to score goals at other teams. It can also be a strategy game, where teams can plan out where to attack and defend. At last, it can be unique game, because it is reinventive and that is it fun -because it contains all these types of elements, and for safety concerns, this game contains some dangerous elements. Such as during the start if the game, teams will rush to the middle and grab coins. But the dangerous part is that everyone has a swimming fin and that the fin can squash people or hit someone on their body. But what’s safe about this game, in my opinion, is how the things are spread out so players can move to any part of the pool. And to answer the last question, are your team active? The answer to that question is it depends. It is because some teams will work collaboratively and some teams will just work as an individual. But also, it depends if the team’s player decides to contribute to the game, but otherwise, the game should be active because you have a lot of things going on.

Rules:

  1. Do not swim until the whistle has blown
  2. Put your coins into your team’s bucket
  3. Do not throw balls at people
  4. Use soft touch balls only to score goals.

Equipment: ( 4 teams)

  • Water Polo Balls
  • Buckets and coins
  • Goals
  • flippers
  • 20 Soft-touch balls
  • 4 Floating rings

Adaptation:

  • You can have a time limit for collecting the coins (1 min)
  • Scoring a goal is 2 points instead of 1 point
  • Give a 2 minute time for counting up all the points, if the 2 minutes time is over and you don’t know how many points you have zero points. 

Gummy Bear Government

At the start of this unit I did not know much about these forms of governments at all.  I only knew what a democracy was because thats what they use in the United States. It is important to learn these forms of government because in the future you might go somewhere and they might ask you about these questions. E.g if you are studying Greece history it is good to learn about the different types of government. I think a Tyranny works the best because the tyrants promised the poor people a good and fair life if they help overthrow the oligarchy.

This type of government is called a Monarchy
This type of government is called a Democracy
This type of government is called a tyranny
This type of government is called a Oligarchy

 

Disgusting Plants 101 (Copyright Claim)

So for mummifying the fruits and vegetables, first we had to put the salt and baking soda inside the plastic bag. After we put the salt and baking soda, we cut the cucumber, apple and cherry tomato in half and put them into out plastic bag. So we left this for about a week and after the week, we opened it. When we first open the bag, the smell was horrible. We took out the fruits and vegetables and then put them on a piece of paper. Then after we put them on a piece of paper, we took a picture of them.

One of my top three favourite learning activities was the breaking news because it was fun to make and it was kind of hard at times because I had to keep re-doing it because at first, I didn’t get it but after someone helped me, I could understand.

The second of my top three favourite learning activities was the crossed or uncrossed because it was challenging at first because we couldn’t figure out if it was crossed or uncrossed but then, after a few more classes, almost everyone figured out the pattern. But for me, I was just guessing and every time, I was getting right. I still have not found out the pattern when almost everyone has.

The last thing was the chapter quiz. For me, the chapter quiz makes you show what you learned and if you were paying attention. I also like studying about the chapters and the questions that go along with it.

 

Math Reflection

I think I feel successful in math by asking for help when I am stuck in something. I think asking people when your stuck is a good idea because if you don’t know how to do it, you can ask someone and they might know and explain it to you.

I am happy with my progress because I think i’ve worked hard in aleks and tried my best and did what I could do. I also turned in all the assignments on time and I didn’t ever submit an assignment late in math class.

For the next quarter, I think I could aim for the 2 year path but that would mean a bit more work than usual. I could also aim to finish unit 2

Ancient Egypt Minecraft Reflection

This project helped me learn about the environment and human settlement in Ancient Egypt because for the people who don’t know what the environment was like in Ancient Egypt, if they watch my video, they can find out how Ancient Egypt could have looked like and what grew there. They could also know what the homes looked like and how they were designed back then.

I am proud of my design in my minecraft world because I spent a lot of time making the nile river and the mediterranean sea  because it wasn’t that easy to make. First of all, the nile river is really long so I tried to make it long but I couldn’t because that would take way too long. The mediterranean sea on the other hand was much harder to make because I had to make it big to make it look like a sea and not a pond so that took roughly 30-35 minutes to dig out the perfect size.

I think next time, I would work more on my screencast because I did fumble up sometimes and I could have done more on the editing. I could have also explained more in the screencast because I felt like I didn’t explain much about the places. Overall, thats what I think I could improve on next time.

Here is the video

Lit Circle Assessment Rubric Reflection

So this is a reflection on my Lit Circle Assessment V-log I did last week. Some highs I got were introduction. I introduced the story and it was clear. I gave a very short summary or Blurb that didn’t give away any parts of the story. For conflict, it was a bit challenging to find out what it was but I managed to find out is was man v man. I explained why it was man v man and I gave at least one quote. The next thing was rating the book and recommending it to specific readers with some reasons. I gave my book a 10/10 and I recommended it to people in 5th grade all the way to 8th grade. I also said that it might be challenging for some 5th graders since there are some words they might have not learned yet. I had eye  contact with the camera and I wasn’t looking all around myself. I was only looking at my notes for a second and then getting back the eye contact with the camera. I didn’t show any of my notes in the v-log since I chose to put my notes on my mac book so it would be easier. I scripted what I was going to say and I used formal standard english

Here are the things I needed to work on. Describing the main character in terms of how they change through the story. I didn’t do much of that. I described what the main character was like at the start of the book but I never said what the main character was like throughout the book. Next was the theme. I didn’t tell how the theme was developing through the story, I only described how to was like at the start of the story. I had trouble speaking clearly and sometimes I kept on saying um and uh and then some of the people who could be watching my v-log could have not understood why I was saying uh and um.
