Cat Tien blog

  1. What was your favorite part of the trip? Describe it with some detail. Why was it your favorite?

My favorite part of the trip is the rapid river and outside field games because I’m active (kind of) and I like sports. I like the rapid river because you can take off your shoes/sandals and put your feet in the cold water(but I prefer warm water).

2. What was the most interesting thing you saw or learned at Cat Tien?

I saw Gibbons up close and I can’t believe that a tree is still alive for 400 years.That tree is called the Tung tree.Also there are rocks that was from a volcano and I have one that I got from Cat Tien.

3.What was the hardest or most challenging part of the trip for you? How did you deal with the challenge?

The challenge for me was showering in the cabin because there was no warm water and I had to have a really really quick shower.

4.What changes do you suggest for next year’s trip? (Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change the cabins, so please don’t suggest this. We have to basically rent them all and that is the only choice with enough room for four classes. Whether and how much the cabins get fixed up is the job of the park, not SSIS. Our only other option would be to go two classes at a time, either staying in the nicest cabins, or at Tai Lai Longhouse (about 10 km from Park Headquarters).

I think that we should do more activities for free time because there was only three activities. Also, I think the Cat Tien should wash the towels more carefully because the towels are really dirty. Here are some pictures of Cat Tien field trip:

 

 

Long walk

  1. What was most difficult or challenging about the activity. Why was it difficult?

I think that the most challenging part about the challenging part was putting a 5 litter bottle on my head.

2.How did you deal with the challenge ?

I kept switching hands so that my hands don’t get tired.

What ideas do you have for making this trip more interesting or realistic next year?

I think that we should eat lunch at the park.

Here are the pictures.

 

 

Shading in art !

In art I learned how to shade and I want to improve on drawing 3D pictures.

Trip to Buu Long

Hello world,

Today I am going to talk about my Buu Long field trip.At Buu Long. My group did abseiling first and we rotated to different stations every time when we were done. Almost at the middle, I cried  because I was scared of height and I said,”I can’t do it,I can’t do it. PULL ME UPPPPP I AM GOING TO DIE!!!!!!! The instructor said,”No, no, no, you are going to be fine”. I was like: “Dude pull me up, I am going to die.” Here is a picture of the cliff.

Then we did rock climbing which was hard for me because I did not climb that much so I was not use to it. Here is the picture of rock climbing.

 

 

Finally, we did zip lining and it was the best activity (in my opinion). But it was not worth it because we spent almost 10 minutes to get there and then we had a 10 second ride.The way to get there was dangerous and my friend almost slipped and the path smelled like goat poop. Here is the picture of the zip lining.

 

My favorite activity is zip lining because it is just relaxing. I think that the most challenging activity is abseiling because it made my fingers painful when I held on the rope. I calmed down by breathing in and out slowly. However, I finished the activity after I tried my best. I learned how to do abseiling and it is a new thing for me. I think that this trip shows pursuing excellence because it gave us a chance to try new things and your best.

 

20 hour project

My 20 hour project is improving smashing in badminton. In a week I practice 3 days with my cousin for 1 hour and 30 min.Its going pretty good but I need more clips of me smashing when I’m playing badminton with my cousin.I am going to use my phone to film.I’m going to film it by giving the phone to my cousin and  hopefully he doesn’t drop my phone when he is trying to serve or play.

building a sand castle.

Me and my sister imagine how the sand castle will look like.We planned that how many bridges that we are going to make and how far the bridge is and how tall the building is.After the planning we designed it by making the buildings first then we made the bridge and let it dry a bit.Then we create it and It turned out ok but when we finished ,my sister some how messed it up.All the hard work for nothing 😥  .

Mission possible Reflection !

Backward-Looking

What problems did you encounter while you were working on this challenge? How did you solve them?

We can’t think of an idea so I just tape pong(aka ping pong ball) to a straw and the washers.

Inward-Looking

What was satisfying to you or frustrating to you during the challenge?

The most satisfying thing in this challenge was when we test the zip liners and the most frustrating thing about this challenge was there was something wrong dental floss (model string) .

Outward-Looking

In what ways did your product meet or not meet the goals of the challenge?

Almost everyone in my class failed because the zip line was to low.But when my teacher raised the rope ,almost everyone made it.

Forward-Looking

What would you change if you have a chance to do this challenge over again?

We will make it lighter.

Feelings: What were some of the different feelings you experienced during the challenge?

My group felt happy and we were just having fun.

The exploration play
