Oh, no! I’m next! I think nervously as the sharks call my group up. I walk to the from of the collaboration room, my stomach doing somersaults on the way. I stand in place next to one of my group members Anna, and she starts the introduction.
“Hello and thank you all for coming. (blah blah blah blah)”
Then my other teammate Halia talks and finally it’s my turn. I take a deep breath and say my part.
Hello, people! That was just a little bit of narrative writing to get you hooked. I hope you actually did get hooked! This is one blog post about the shark tank that we did last Wednesday.
I don’t know if you know this, but we have been working on a proposal for sustainable solutions and made proposals. If our proposal got through the shark tank, which mine didn’t, my team and I would have done another shark tank in from of the 4th grade, the important people of the school (the shark tank for the second one) and the parents. But, mine didn’t get through, so I’m going to talk about the first shark tank that we did in the collaboration room on Wednesday afternoon.
Our team, Cup Cup & Away, was the 5th team to go. I was so nervous and as we walked up to the front of the room, I was shaking so hard that I thought I was doing to faint! But then, after a few sentences, I got more confident and I was able to present quite well, I thought.
The idea that we thought up was to make the disposable cups reusable by buying new ones that are reusable, and are BPA Free (that helps the customers’ health).
For ecology, we said that by reusing the smoothie cups, we will not waste as much plastic as we do now.
For economics, we said that by buying the smoothie cups all at once and reusing them, we would save more money because instead of buying lots and lots of disposable smoothie cups, we only have to buy the amount we need plus a few extra just in case they break.
For politics, we said that we consider it because we will be making sure that people bring back the cups and keeping the process going.
For culture, we said we consider it because we raise the awareness of saving our environment among our community by reusing our cups.
Although my group didn’t get through to the finale, I’m really proud of what we did: Looking for ideas to evaluate and try to make happen, writing the proposal and the pitch, and finally, presenting what we had planned. I think that even if we don’t get through, we worked really hard and did some really good work.
Oh! I almost forgot! The PICTURES!!! Here they are! (Sorry I only have a few there were no pictures of me)
