On Monday 12th, the whole 5th grade went on a 4 hour bus ride to Cat Tien national park!.          When we got there, the boat was waiting for us so we could go to the other side to our cabins. Once we got there, we had lunch and the teachers told us who our roommates and groups, I got the person that I like to be with!!!. We all went to our cabin and my cabin was called Reddish wood, we all packed our daypack to go to the primate centre, after that we went to the bonfire with everyone. Then we went to our cabins and i saw a giant spider on the wall of the cabin, next day we woke up at 6:00 to go to breakfast, our group started with a game of deer ears and then we went to the moon bear centre but we sadly we didn't get to feed the bears because the people there already did. Then we started to head back to camp for lunch and all the groups had choice group, me and my friends choice drawing so at first it was ok but then it got really boring afterwards. We walked for around 10 to 15 minutes to do a micro ecosystem, we had some rest once we finish we had some rest then afterward we got ready for dinner and my whole group went for a night hike and we got to star gaze and soon we got to go home and i was so happy!!!!

in 1 of my art I choose to do shading for a shadow, because it looks very nice and I wanted to do something hard that would challenge me. the hard part that I was stuck with the shadow and the shading on the clothes and body, the easy part was the facial features for my character. I think I would do one point perspective. my goal is to try to shade evenly.

This is my drawing:

My 20 hour project is to be better at piano for a fast timing and hand movement. Therefore, I would try to play a piece of music that has a fast hand movement and timing. However, it's not going to be too hard so I should practise for maybe for a long time. Therefore I can get use to it and I should practise for an hour or two so I can be better.

Last Tuesday I practised for an hour,  but the problem was that I wasn't confident to do it.  But, I was able to do a bit of the song and I am also getting use to it.

I think next week I should spend more time on practise piano. I will spent 1hour on Tuesday and 1hour on Saturday. I will focus on the fast hand movement.

I think edmodo is useful for all the students because we get to communicate with the teachers and the other students and ask them question or ask them if they can help you with your work. I also think that biblionasium is good because we can look at what other people is reading or find what book you like to read.

In my weekend, I was cooking and I imagined my cake to have a layer of whip cream in the middle and on top. My design for the cake was in my mind for a while so I sketch the imagine onto a paper then I started  using that idea and make it into a reality. I created it using cake mix, butter and vanilla extract then mix it all together and I put it in the oven to let it bake, once it baked take it out, I actually made two so next I decorated it with whip cream and I put a strawberry on top. I did a taste test to see if tasted good but I forgot to add the sugar. I think next time I need to add some sugar. 

Thinking Reflectively About our Launch

Backward-LookingWhat problems did you encounter while you were working on this challenge? How did you solve them?

The problem that I encountered in the challenge was how heavy the weight was. We tested it with the dental floss.

Inward-LookingWhat was satisfying to you or frustrating to you during the challenge?


The satisfying thing that I saw was moving pong over on the other side.



Outward-LookingIn what ways did your product meet or not meet the goals of the challenge?

My product did meet the goal in the second test because of the washer's heaviness.

Forward-LookingWhat would you change if you have a chance to do this challenge over again?

I would take away some of the washers because it is really heavy.



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

I felt a little happy, but mostly I felt normal because the ping pong ball went really slowly.
