## Metaphor Machines!!!

Thanks for reading guys this project me made learn about how electricity moves to places and how it gets to places and also some gravity with our machine.

In conclusion this project was really fun and helped me learn about Canadian confederation at the start of the project I knew almost nothing about it but after the project I was very familiar about what I was talking about. This project also helped me how to act with a green screen.

## Like terms

Today I will be talking about like terms our most recent project in math. To start off our project we did was a LEGO construction contest. Me and my partner Gabe did a lego construction with the website called mechabrick which it basically lego building online it was a pretty cool website and I think we made a pretty cool structure. So Gabe was in charge of the building with help of me and I did all the math.  So there a our scobby do dog house a fence around the edge.  Then here is my math you had to do to make it about our project like terms. The next thing we did was a lot of worksheets and some lesson notes these were really helpful because if you didn’t understand something you could refer to these things and it made you understand things way better and then we moved into our project for this project you could really chose whatever you wanted in this project you just had to be able to make like terms out of it. So our original idea was to make something out of mincraft but after some feedback and some thinking we decided to make a song or a little beat. So how we made was we went into garage band and started to create beats then write down the the polynomials.  So as you can see in these photos the different polynomials and it means we used 8 F-keys on the piano for example it says 16e so we used 16 E-keys. In conclusion I learned a lot of things this project including that me and Gabe do not work well together and when someone is distracting you it is hard to learn but I did learn some stuff about polynomials and like terms.

## Nationalism!! And memes?

Hello everyone and today I will talking about our latest project all about nationalism. To start off the project we did out need to knows so we got a little bit of information about the project then we filled out a need to know sheet about the project.The next thing we did was complete a worksheet on historical significance. Usually I hate worksheets! However, this one was not bad because I got to choose what I was researching. So I chose, the first man who walked on the moon which I found out was significant because not everyone can just go walk to the moon.It was not a difficult task but we got it done. Now we move on to the aspect of cause and consequence and this task was pretty cool task you had to chose something that was history and realize what the cause and consequences of it was a I chose the invention of the light bulb.

So know we had a good understanding of what we had to do so we got into the meme making. So know we got into the meme making we used this app called TikTok or you could make regular paper memes. So I decided to make 3 TikToks with Ben and Gabe the first one we made was basketball trick shots I think it went really well because we showed good use of tiktok and we got a good understanding of the app because we were all not familiar with the app.

As you can see it was pretty short so we decided to make another one because we were in the gym but this time we wanted to add transitions.

For our final tiktok we made Gabe make a tiktok, and this one is pretty funny.

So now that we got a good sense of what we had to film we moved on to our final project. It was we had to do the same thing but make it about nationalism but this time I got a little help from my brother.

So my first TikTok was about Africa and how they were trying to divide it up but they could not find an even place so I made a representation of it. For my second one I talked about Anna da Sousa life story and how she has to change religion to save her country.

In conclusion this project really helped me learn how to persuade what I am trying to say in a different way then just speaking about it. This project also really helped me understand what happened back in that time and how hard it was back then. It put a perspective of how lucky we really are.

## M-Pol

Hello everyone welcome to my m-pol and today I will be starting off talking about, the beginning which mean coming in to this year my thoughts changed a lot this summer and going into grade nine I really wanted to work hard this year and really prove to my self that I can do anything that I put my mind to there is a quote by Derek Jeter that says there is always someone better then you but no one should work harder then you I really wanted to put that into action this year in anything I did and so far I have no regrets. Now the driving question What is your learning goal that you want to reach by the end of this school year, and how will you meet it? my learning goal this is improving my writing skill and story telling and I also need to work on my organizing for the story telling part I will continue to keep writing blog posts and write story’s but I will focus on the language I use I think I need to use a deeper use of words. I will be also on top of my things and use it more than I do I have been using it more this year but not nearly enough and also put things in my calendar I am getting better on it I put my sports in my calendar but I need to start time blocking my homework. http://www.blog44.ca/kadend/2019/11/28/video-skills-blog-post%f0%9f%a4%af/. This post I think really shows my improvement so far this year but it definitely can be better but I think if I keep working hard this year then this goal is very achieveible. Now moving on to my reflection on humanities science, math and PGP

For humanities something that I did well was the Russian revolution video I think I did so well on this because I was a leader in my group I made the lyrics and lead the rapping this is something I did well on because I am not usually a leader but I stepped up and in result was a pretty good video. https://youtu.be/ZMsNBBQbUDY Something I could work for humanities is definitely my creative reflections I definitely not the most creative person in the world, so creative reflections don’t come easy for me but I think this a good example because for the creative reflection I did I didn’t get the mark I did and I kept at it and revised I think 2 or 3 times before I was happy with the mark I got. I also think the shows how much harder I have been working this year and I am way more determined this year. https://youtu.be/kFEOd6ds5TM As you can see not a great video but I stuck with it and made a product I was happy with. https://youtu.be/HNzxEjq85iU

## Winter Exhibition 🌨❄️

So it was a pretty creative way to build a lightsaber. So for you to really understand the process of how I built it I made an explain everything and in the video I explain each step what I did and how I did it.

So know you really understand the process of making the lightsaber now on to the exhibition!! The day of the exhibition just feels different almost like a big sports game or something. Throughout the day we were taking parts of the room down and slowly building Hoth, but after school is were it really begins. So on the outside of the room we had all the grade nines with there story’s then in the middle we had the grade 8’s with there blue sky projects. When the exhibition started there was so much going everyone was coming to my station when person said I have a career in props making and I don’t disagree I am really good with my hands. But in the end this was one of the most fun I have had in school and you can learn important stuff like how to tell a good story but also learn it in a fun way. That reason right there is why I joined PLP.

## Week Eight Let’s Reflect

For our final week of the blogging, challenge, we had to reflect on our experience with the challenge. So this is my second year in the challenge so I sort of expected what was going to happen but week one happened. After all, I had a really good experience with the blogging challenge and I think it made me a better writer and way more creative. This is my last year doing the blogging challenge so it has been a great experience for me to improve as a writer. I will keep blogging as the year goes on with different projects because it is really important to keep writing about your experiences in life so you have memories of them. My favorite week this year was week 6 about emojis so I made a video about different emojis and how they are the same to movies it was pretty fun because you can relate to the movies through emojis.

One the week I didn’t really like so much was music I don’t play music or anything I don’t relate to it at all. Even though I didn’t like I still had to do it so I made a beat in a garage band.

Overall the student blogging challenge teaches me that you have to read through the challenge and take your time with the challenge don’t rush it slow down. Also work on my own which I am working on throughout the year.

## Movie Review|| The last Jedi

The Star Wars, Episode The Last Jedi is shockingly good. You’d expect it to be loud and gargantuan and to hit its marks in the manner of JJ Abrams’s Force awakens which was the first episode under Disney is  as well as the first to leave George Lucas behind, presumably counting his money and leaving the fans. What you’d never dare expect is high style, let alone the kind of emotion that holds you through three different story’s Which hich has a mandate to look backward and forward as well as sideward at any character with the potential to be spun off into his or her own vehicle. But the new writer-director, Rian Johnson He pinpoints the intersection between characters’ desperate need to belong and the special effects that will lift those longings into the realm of myth. He achiees what no one else has since The empire strikes backk

Daisy Ridley returns as Rey, the orphan who, last time out, discovered that she had the Force and used it to repel an attack by the callow Darth Vader Wannabe Kylo REN    after which she took off (with Chewbacca and R2-D2) for the rocky island where Luke Skywalker lives in self-imposed exile. It was a holy moment at the end of The Force Awakens when she came face-to-face with him at the top of a long line of steps, bearing his old lightsaber. It’s an unholy moment in The Last Jedi when the last Jedi tosses it away and returns to his cave to feel sorry for himself. Not Yoda will he be, apparently. What’s eating Luke? It takes Rey a while to get the full story In the meantime, who should show up in visions but Ren, who carves out a quiet space in a parallel realm in which he and Rey share their innermost thoughts. She’s convinced that despite his fealty to the creepy Supreme Leader Snoke she can reach the core of Jedi decency in him, much as Luke once stirred the long-dormant heart of Darth Vader. But Luke has his doubts about Ren. Perhaps it had something to do with howHe skewered his own dad. The Rey-Luke-Ren triangle is really the main story line, but much time is taken up by Star Wars’ new high-flying cowboy, Poe Dameron

I also think, The last Jedi, there’s a lot of sleight-of-hand involved in making you think that the plot is moving forward instead of in circles. The first demolished space cannon is very exciting, the twelfth a bit of been-there-exploded-that. And how can it be that, however traumatic the intervening decades, the open-faced, shining-eyed Luke Skywalker has evolved into a raspy, hirsute, get-off-my-lawn old fart? His name should be Luke cavswalker like go help the rebels you old fart.
