On March 12-15 2018, 5th grade went on a trip to Cat Tien national park. My favorite part of the trip was visiting the moon bear center because I got to hide the bears food which was fun and I also got to watch the bears looking for my food but they did not find it. The most interesting thing I learned at Cat Tien was how the Pygmy slow loris defend itself using it’s poison. When a predator comes, it mixes it’s saliva with some protein on it’s armpits, that creates poison so the pygmy slow loris can bite and damage the predator and scare it away. The hardest thing on the trip was hiking because we were walking a lot and I almost got stung by a bee. I solved the tiredness by using the same trick as Salva in long walk to water which is thinking of walking to a close object and walk to it. I kept doing it until we reached our destination. I think we should walk further in the morning hike because the morning hike was very short.
Station 1 I carried a bucket on my head and I did it twice. Station 2 I carried the bamboo stick with two buckets on my back. Station number 3 I made dirty water into normal water. Station 4 I fetch water using a bucket to get water.
2.What was most difficult or challenging about the activity. Why was it difficult?
I think it was mr.bình’s station because it hurt a lot when you put the bamboo on my shoulder.
How did you deal with the challenge?
I switch from shoulder to back and it feels better.
What ideas do you have for making this trip more interesting or realistic next year?
I chose to draw a robot because one of my story is about engineers and before i don’t know how to draw a robot so i look online. I learned how to draw a robot and shade it. I think I need to work on shadows because when I color the shadow the colors don’t blend in and mix.
First I imagine winning my uncle at chess! Then, I plan what piece my uncle hates the most in chess and does not know how to counter it and I will use that piece. After that I design a strategy of how to start and what could happen etc. I play the chess game and I WON MY UNCLE!!! Last but not least I evaluate on what moves I did wrong and how I could win quicker.
I am building ship with my group. We have to build a ship of our explorer and my groups explorer is Ferdinand Magellan. The part I think was the most fun was building the ship. I learned what explorers sail for and what troubles they have to face.
