Hello my name is Al. This quarter we have been learning about underwater games. We have been playing a game that is based underwater. Our game has four teams and each team has 6 players. On each team there is someone who collects coins and someone who shoots goals. We have a goalie and someone who protects the four rings on each corner of the pool. In order to gain 20 points we have to put the ball in our ring to someone else’s ring with no ball inside. WE have to collect the coins and bring them back to our bucket for 1 point each. Each round you should be averaging 10-18 coins. The last role is the shooter and the shooter gets the balls in the middle of the pool and shoots the other people’s goals. The game is fun and fast-paced. I would reccomend it to people who like fast paced shooting games. The game is quite safe but people can get hit on the head with balls since there are always balls being thrown around. People can also get hit with flippers when people are swimming underwater.
Adaptations for the game:
This week, in swimming we played an underwater game that used balls, goals, and tubes.
While playing the game, we realized that there were some adaptations to make while playing the game. So in class, we have to choose to participate playing this game that we have renamed to Crossball Underwater.
We also have to go underwater and find coins
After that we have to get the coins and put it into the bucket.
Here is our game
4 fair even teams
Be honest to how many points you score.
When the ball goes in, you can’t take it out anymore.
At the last minute try to put the ball inside the tube.
Don’t aim near the goalie.
Aim for the bars e.g crossbar, and sidebars.
Collect coins in the beginning of the game, put in bucket.
In science today we had to make a model of anything we have learned in our Earth unit. We used these big Lego blocks to make a model of what we chose. I chose two convergent plate boundaries crashing together. A convergent plate boundary is a part of the Earth’s crust that move around all the time. When two convergent plate boundaries crash together, this creates either mountains, earthquakes or tsunamis caused from the earthquakes. As you can see in the picture, the plate boundary on the top is crashing into the other plate boundary on the bottom. The Lego pieces in the middle that are not attached to the other Lego pieces are the sediments from the aftermath. Sediments also form from erotion from weathering on mountains. Sediments are tiny pieces of rock that occur when a rock is crushed together or broken down. For example sand would be a sediment rock, pebbles would be sediments too. Gravel would also be another good example of sediments. In conclusion, I learnt a lot about the world and how it works in this unit. This was my second favourite unit this year because of how much you learn and of how much stuff we didn’t know about the Earth.
