UNDERWATER GAME:

“Adaptations”

 

By: Russell, Max, Dac Lan, KhaVy, Haley, and Ana

 

HOW TO PLAY:

 

  • There are four goals and four teams which are wearing fins on each side of the pool.
  • All of the teams will be split evenly and will each have one goal.
  • All goals are evenly sized.
  • There will be water dodge balls in the middle of the pool, and coins are scattered underwater.
  • There will also be buckets with weights inside of them to keep them underwater.
  • Lastly, there will be rings which will have a team’s water polo ball. A water polo ball worth 20 goals while a normal ball is only worth 1 goal.
  • There will be teammates who have different jobs as well depending on your team's strategy, such as some will focus on getting as many coins as possible. Others might focus on scoring points through rings or goals. Some might protect their ring and goal from other teams.
  • The objective of the game is to get as many points as possible in the given amount of time (10 minutes). In that time, you must first pick up all the coins inside the pool and put them in your bucket which is underwater. After, you must take the normal balls and try to shoot them into the other team’s goals. When there is only one minute left, a whistle will blow and you can take your water polo ball, and score it in another team’s empty ring. This will score you 20 points. When time is up, your team will grab your bucket and count all the coins you have collected, as well as count up all the points you have scored in goals or or ring. The team with the most points wins and get one point.
  • After that round, you rotate in clockwise and start over. This cycle will repeat until you have ended up back in the same spot as you were before. The team with the most rounds won at the end is the winner of the game.

UNDERWATER FOOTAGE OF GAME:

 

 

 

In science recently we have been studying about geology. Today we had to build a model of layers out of Duplo.

This is our model.

In this photo, we are showing the layers of our crust. The first layer that formed was the green layer. The green layer is at the bottom which means it's the oldest. The next layer is the yellow layer because it is on top of the green. The yellow folded which means that it bent shape because it had some consistent pressure on it because of the tectonic plates. After that, the red and blue layer formed. The blue layer and red layer were moved because of a fault. Faults are when there is a crack in the rocks and then it moves and shifts. That's why blue and red aren't aligned.

In PE recently we have been doing archery. We picked partners so that one person would be watching and one person would be holding a bow. The person with the bow would stand in front of the saftey zone and behind the cones where the arrows were. We waited until Mrs. Liz told us to load our bows. When she did we all with bows loaded our bows with metal arrows. Then she blew the whistle and then we fired.

Targeting is a person or a rock or a shooting board/dart board and you try to hit it with a frisbee or any kind of thing like an arrow or a rock or a gun.

In archery, we stand in front of the small cones which are the saftey zone. Our legs are facing directly to the right side.

We hold the string by having 1 finger on the top of the arrow and 2 fingers below and we do not hold on really tight. We hold it so that our fingers are wrapped around.

Grouping in archery is a result of one person shooting multiple arrows at a target.

This is my grouping picture.

This is my shooting

 

 

 

In social studies today we used gummy bears and put the bears to make it look like democracy, tyranny, monarchy, oligarchy.

In this picture 4 people are ruling which means its oligarchy and everyone is bowing down to them.

In this picture, Donald Trump is on the platform and people are voting for him. This is democracy.

This is monarchy. A king or queen that is ruling.

Ruler that is illegal. They usually rule with an army.

 

My slogan for our groups product (Headphone Wrappers) is "Tangle Free = Happiness". I chose this because i'm trying to promote that tangle free headphones are much easier to untangle than just wrapping it up and it makes the person less frustrated. I feel like this achieves this because I have experienced it myself. I try to untangle them and it takes 5 mins and I just wasted 5 mins of my life so if I use my product it will keep me from having to untangle my headphones every time I use my headphones. Buy our product!!!!

In social studies, we have been mummifying vegetables. We cut out all the seeds of the vegetable then we put the vegetable in salt and baking soda. Then we took the vegetable out. We wrapped the vegetables in tissue paper. Then we left it in the plastic bag for 1 week. When we came back to school on Monday we unwrapped the vegetables and this is what we found.........

This term my favorite things we did were

  1. Minecraft ancient Egypt project.                                                                                                          In that, we made the Nile river, kush and Cannan in Minecraft. We had to show the benefits of the body of water.
  2. pharaoh news.                                                                                                                                        We had to make news about an ancient Egyptian fact.
  3.  crossed and uncrossed                                                                                                                        It's a game where there are 2 pencils that we have to guess if it was crossed or uncrossed

Lit circles was ok because my group only had 1 person prepared and the other was not prepared. I realised that in a book discussion I need to get deep into the book and talk about the plot of the story and other stuff like that. For next time I think i should have more deeper thoughts about the book not just simple things like "why did Oz do that?"

The top 3 things I learned about human settlement is

  1. They to have fresh water source around.
  2. I could understand life of an ancient egyptian
  3. I learned that humans lived near a place where there was vegitation and fresh water

The 2 parts of my project that i am proud of is my nile river because it was hard to make and the mediterranean sea.

The thing i would do differently next time is put more effort into this project because I rushed though it.
