20 Hour project

Hello world

The 20 hour project is a project that 5 grade is working on. We have to practice a skill or develop a new skill. My 20 hour hour project is trying to play the ukulele.

It is going ok so far. I finished 2 hours of my plan last week and i plan to finish 4 hours of my plan this week. While playing the ukulele i had problems with tuning it because i just couldn’t get the right tune. It also hurt my fingers because i had to press on the string. When i played the notes it sounded ok. It could use some work but i only just started so…

Hour 1: Keep practicing simple notes

Hour 2: Practice  playing the notes smoothly

Hour 3: Tune and learn some of the notes from the song

Hour 4: Try playing the notes quicker and learn more notes

Hour 5: Practice moving my fingers from string to string quicker

Hour 6: Learn the whole beginning of the song

Hour 7: Practice playing the beginning nicely and practice a bit of the middle.

Edmodo

Hello everyone

Edmodo is a website were our teacher post homework and we also sometimes do homework on there.

I think the good thing about Edmodo is you can chat to your classmates so you can tell them your ideas and what you think.

I think the good thing about Edmodo is if you forget what your homework is you can go on Edmodo and check.

I think Edmodo is not so good because a lot of the times when doing homework on edmodo is difficult because of WIFI problems.

Biblionasium

Welcome back to my blog. Biblionasium is a website we use in school were we make comments and write about a book we are reading.

I think biblionasium is good because our teacher can see what you are reading.

I think biblionasium is good because you can suggest books to people and everyone else can also suggest books for you to read.

I think biblionasium is bad because you don’t actually get to read the book on the website.

The Design Cycle

Hello world. Welcome back to my blog.  

                                     imagine

evaluate                                            plan

             create                       design

This is the design cycle.

One of the times i went through the design cycle was when i was trying to draw a 3d 1 point perspective drawing. First i imagined how the picture was going to look. Then i planed in my mind where the vanishing point was going to be. After that i started doing light sketches of where i wanted certain objects to be. Then i started actually drawing and making the lines darker. At the end i evaluated by thinking how i could make my drawing better.

When was 1 of the times you went through the design cycle?

 

 

Reflection On Poor Pong

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

At first my team had a problem with how to secure Pong onto the washers. We fixed the problem by using a straw to secure Pong to the washers.

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

The part that was satisfying  was at the end our product worked.

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

My team,s product met the goal by sliding through the zip line.

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

I would use only 1 or 2 washers instead of using all four of them.

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

I felt happy at the end because our product was able to bring Pong to the other side.
