On sunday I wanted to decorate my house in Roblox so I imagined what I needed then I made a plan of where to put everything. I already had a few things in my house so I wanted to design my house to look modern. I went to buy what I needed then put them where it looked good. The last thing I did was check what other things did I need or if something should go here or there.

Backward-LookingWhat problems did you encounter while you were working on this challenge? How did you solve them?

Pong did not slide and we put too much weight on it so it made it even harder too move. Our zip line made too much friction.

Inward-LookingWhat was satisfying to you or frustrating to you during the challenge?

It was quite funny because we were making names for the zip line we built.

Outward-LookingIn what ways did your product meet or not meet the goals of the challenge?

We built something but it didn't meet our goal because Pong didn't slide to the other side.

Forward-LookingWhat would you change if you have a chance to do this challenge over again?

I would change the way we built it because we used materials that would cause friction and not make it go.

Feelings: What were some of the different feelings you experienced during the challenge?

Happy, Frustrated, Funny

Last week we researched about explorers(My explorer was Lewis and Clark). Then we turned them into plays and performed then in the flex room. Since Lewis and Clark( Me and Chelsea) and Sacagawea( An and Manabi) were related, we decided to do a play together. Here is our play(VERY CRINGY)!!!!. We first wrote our skit then we decided what props we needed and who would bring it, I am proud of bringing enough props because some groups didn't really have enough props. I think we should have stayed in character more because at some parts we were laughing and smiling. I give my play a 3 because I think our play had a lot of details, props, facts and more. I liked some other skits that had funny parts in it to make us laugh.

ME: Lewis, CHELSEA: Clark and Kidnapper, Manabi: narrator, AN: Sacagawea

Yesterday my class went to the high school gym. The 9th and 10th graders were teaching us how to dance to a song called Its Good To Be Alive, Right About Now!. I think the high schoolers did a good job teaching us the dance because they were being enthusiastic and they made it easy for us to dance. 2 things I think they should improve on is letting everyone talk because in my group only the girls were talking and the boys kept quiet and followed along. The 2nd thing is at some parts they forgot the movement so it made it harder for us to dance. 

Starting last week we started building ships in the makerspace. We were building ships of different explorers from 950 until the year 1700. My explorers were Lewis and my other explorer was Clark, they went exploring together. Lewis and Clark didn't go by ship but instead they went by foot, starting in the west and then exploring the east side of the United States. They crossed rivers by a barge(A ship that takes you across the river). So thats whats me and my partner Chelsea are building.

First we started building the sides of the ship and the bottom and the top of the ship. Then we built the room, the third step was building the sail and gluing the flag on. The last step was painting the ship.

            

This month we started book clubs! We read the book The Bridge To Terabithia. My group members are Manabi, Tim and Son. Here is my review on this book.

The Bridge To Terabithia

This book is not a really good book because it is about this boy(Jesse)'s life. Even the sad part was only ok. This book happened a long time ago because it gave hints like what life was like in the 1980's. I like the part that Leslie(Jesse's best friend) died because it made the book more intresting.

BYE BYE

In unit 5 we studied about fractions and decimals. In the pre test I got 82% but in the post test I got 100% so I was pretty happy. I actually in the pretest already knew most the things but they were kind of written in a different way so I got it wrong. One of my silly mistakes in my pretest was I wrote 0.2< 0.20.But overall I was pretty happy with this unit!  Bye!✌?

Hi people. Yesterday was the Film Festival, it was awesome! I will tell you all about it. So we came to school around 6:15 but before that I told my mom to go sit in the audience. We waited for a long time then we got called up to the stage for pictures in our groups. After that we started the documentaries. I was also M.C so that made it even better. My documentary was about Fish sauce, my group members were Miso, Quang and Son. During the Film Festival intermission they set up stands of different types spring rolls, rice noodles, tea and other things but I forgot. Over all it was amazing.
