UNDERWATER GAME:

“Adaptations”

 

By: Russell, Max, Dac Lan, KhaVy, Haley, and Ana

 

HOW TO PLAY:

 

  • There are four goals and four teams which are wearing fins on each side of the pool.
  • All of the teams will be split evenly and will each have one goal.
  • All goals are evenly sized.
  • There will be water dodge balls in the middle of the pool, and coins are scattered underwater.
  • There will also be buckets with weights inside of them to keep them underwater.
  • Lastly, there will be rings which will have a team’s water polo ball. A water polo ball worth 20 goals while a normal ball is only worth 1 goal.
  • There will be teammates who have different jobs as well depending on your team's strategy, such as some will focus on getting as many coins as possible. Others might focus on scoring points through rings or goals. Some might protect their ring and goal from other teams.
  • The objective of the game is to get as many points as possible in the given amount of time (10 minutes). In that time, you must first pick up all the coins inside the pool and put them in your bucket which is underwater. After, you must take the normal balls and try to shoot them into the other team’s goals. When there is only one minute left, a whistle will blow and you can take your water polo ball, and score it in another team’s empty ring. This will score you 20 points. When time is up, your team will grab your bucket and count all the coins you have collected, as well as count up all the points you have scored in goals or or ring. The team with the most points wins and get one point.
  • After that round, you rotate in clockwise and start over. This cycle will repeat until you have ended up back in the same spot as you were before. The team with the most rounds won at the end is the winner of the game.

Here in our picture, we created a model of a volcano out of Duplo bricks, it might not show that it is a volcano very well so I will explain what this is about. The green pieces represent the grass, the ground. The red pieces represent the magma that rises up from underground. It happens when the tectonic plates move and create sudden movements underground. There are 3 ways that in can move, convergent plate boundaries is when the 2 plate boundaries move and hit each other directly, divergent plate boundaries is when 2 plate boundaries move away from each other, the last one is transform plate boundaries, that is when the two plates hit each other but slide past each other. All of these can create really dangerous volcanoes and earthquakes, but the convergent can create the biggest earthquakes and the biggest  volcanoes because when it hit each other, it can create the biggest earthquakes, but sometimes, one plate can sink deeper underground after hitting another plate, creating a deadly volcano. Volcanoes usually form when the mantle melts, and creates magma, then the magma moves up from the ground and the volcano erupts, magma starts to fly out of the volcano, and a lot of smoke flies out too.

 

 

Spanish was my favorite class since I came to SSIS, for me it was not that hard and really fun. My favorite assignment is the presentation about me and my family. It wasn't that challenging but it took long to make the slides.

Here is the link to my slides:https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1NB-jNR3y45TSw-NtVL9nzWMvH4u6fhiTHTLoDmlNBCc/edit#slide=id.g35f391192_00

In Writing, we learned about writing techniques and also advertising techniques for Dragons' Apprentice. My favorite assignment was All I Need To Know because making it was really fun for me. We were supposed to choose a topic that we learned about in Dragons' Apprentice and write about it.

I was pretty happy with my results on my Unit 3, which I got a 94 for which is pretty good. I am happy with my knowledge that I learned in Math because I think it's going to be really helpful later on in my life.

In my first year at SSIS, I think my favorite task was the Space Colony presentation. I love researching about space so I just did it and by doing that we made the slides and presented and got a decent grade. I was pretty happy with my knowledge about space because I love space!

My favorite task was maybe the color wheel painting because right when Mrs.Jardin told us about the task, an idea just popped up in my head immediately I just did what popped up in my mind. When I completed this task, I learned that coloring with watercolor is really fun and I saw that my imagination is endless. I was really happy with my watercolor painting because I didn't actually thought I can make it look that nice but it turned out well.
