A couple days ago, we finished the book Island of the Blue Dolphin. After that Mr. Ross said we could draw a cover for the book and make a different name.
For the newest unit I had to choose someone who explored something. I chose Charles lindbergh. If you don’t know who that is he is the first person to flying across the Atlantic with no re-fuel and solo and the first man too! This is how the Living museum worked like this: One class stood on the perimeter and one in the center. So the class in the middle chose who they would want to hear and when they chose, they press the press me button and they have one minute to talk.
During this art unit we were doing figure drawing. I personally didn’t like this unit because i couldn’t choose what I drew. I learned that boss lines are very important because they guide your drawing and help you with making the drawing look ‘real’. One thing i want to improve is shading the drawing.

During Art I have been exploring different mediums like Clay and Digital Art on assembly and doodle buddy. Also during the first class of this I made a clay carrot phone. The hardest medium was clay because had to sculpt it.
Because we finished our G4 talks, for our unit celebration we did a grade sleepover. At first I thought it would be boring because none of my friends are in my group but after it was fun. first the people who had after school activities[ASA] went and I had geek squad. After I went back we did a couple tag games like octopus tag, dead ant and toilet tag. We played for about 1 hour and started to move to the restaurants. I went to a japanese restaurants called Osaka Ramen. I was with some of my friends and i ate a roasted pork rice bowl. We ate and talked for a while and went back for activities. First I played silent ball and wink murder for 30 minutes and then i played jungle speed for another 30 minutes. After that I finally got ready for bed and slept. i had a hard time sleeping because i used my tiny ninjago pillow. but finally i fell asleep at 9:00.
Today was a very scary and exciting day. today we did something we were preparing for weeks.
THE G4 TALKS!
My talk was about e-cigarettes. before I had to take a lot of deep breaths. and after I really don’t know why I was scared because it was fine when i was on. I think I did pretty good overall. Two things that went well and i was proud of were the info we found which is very useful info on e-cigs. Also I was proud of the slideshow Stella and I made. One thing that could have gone differently was on the computer one paragraph was missing so me and stella just ended it there. I want to thank Mr.hoa for helping me and stella and also giving us tips for the script.
have you ever dissected a chicken wing? we did!! there was blood, veins and bones. we even cut into a pig lung and inflated it with air it was cool and gross.
Today some teachers showed us an what the G4 talks would be like. I liked mr Papaseit’s G4 talk because he told us how he had a dream to be a inventor since he was a kid and I liked how he told us he wanted to be a superhero but he didn’t have any thing special about him some one day he found out about batman he wasn’t from another planet or any thing he invented him own gadgets and he was inspired by him and thought anything was possible!
