It was a really lucky experience to be able to go to a field trip with the eco-artist Tracy Lee. We went to the Crescent Mall bridge to start and got into 3 groups. One of the groups went to sketch first, the second group got to write poems about nature and the last group got to dip a long fabric to the river with Tracy Lee. We rotated 1 time and then ate home lunch. Then we rotated the rest of the time so everyone could do three things.We also learned a word that is Sustainability. Sustainability is having habits that restore our environment. It was an amazing experiment.
We went to the museums to learn about our topic Viable Vietnam. The first museum we went was the Vietnamese traditional medical museum. We saw lots of different types of medicines that Vietnamese people used a long time ago.We also saw A herb doctors tree which was really interesting. The next museum we went was the Vietnamese ao dai museum. We saw a lot of different types of ao dai’s. There were also ao dai’s that were mixed with 2 countries. For example Vietnamese ao dai with american traditional clothes design mixed together.
Today we went on a fabulous field trip. We did a lot of different things which were really fun and interesting. The first thing we did was to watch a water puppet show. It was absolutely amazing. There was a lot of different characters that could do different things. Then we went to the park to have a rest and eat our snack. We also had to interview someone and ask them about Vietnam. Interviewing was harder than I thought because some people didn’t want to interview. And the last thing we did was to eat our lunch.we went to a place called Ben thanh. we went to eat in a place called Ben thanh street food. There were a lot of different food from different countries but we were only aloud to eat vietnamese food but the food was still delicious.
In grade 4, We have a showcase time when we can show our parents what we have done in our thinking outside the box unit. We show our parents the fantasy game, the fantasy story and our prototypes. It was very nervous but also fun to show our parents what we did.
In the unit thinking outside the box, we have been doing a lot of things and one of them are making prototypes in groups. While we were making prototypes there were many difficulties and frustration because our prototype sometimes broke and sometimes the hummingbird didn’t connect. But we also got to do teamwork and use different tools in the maker space. Our prototype was a lamp. It had 2 distance sensors that if it senses you, the light will come up. It was really creative. Our prototype name is THE C.P.L short for the creative pink lamp.

This year in Vietnamese, we did lots of activities that are really fun. We also learned a lot of things that are interesting about Vietnamese, how to write in Vietnamese and to say the words correctly. Throughout the year, Vietnamese was really fun for me. But the most challenging thing was writing in Vietnamese because we had to remember the tones. The link below is about moon festival. I used VNI to type this link and it was really challenging.

In the first semester at grade 4, we went to a field trip to RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology). It was a great field trip. We learned a lot of technology things like, How to make a battery or how does robots work. We had a chance to play with the robots, one of them was called Baxter a human formed helping robot. It was a great to be invited and learn about lot Technology things we didn’t know about. I really enjoyed the part about robots. I really thank RMIT for hosting me.
Wow! I can’t believe I did my G4 talk! I was so nervous and exited about doing our G4 the first time. I was worried if I would make any mistakes r forget my lines in front of a big audience. When it was my turn I got butterflies in my tummy. But actually when we finished our G4 talk it was really quick and I was really proud of myself that I did my G4 talk. I was proud that I didn’t make much mistakes and did eye contacts with the audience. If i could have done my G4 talk again I would look at the audience more and do eye contacts. It was really fun and i would like to do it again!
My first math unit was fun. We learned about lots of things like:Rounding,Explaining,and more. Some of the tasks were easy, but some of the tasks were kind of challenging,we had to think a lot. We had poems so we could understand better too! We also got to do a web called khan academy which was answering questions about different things in math. I liked our first unit in math and i am looking forwards to our second unit in math.
