Hi everyone,

This is a reflection blog post on my Tectonic Books project. For this project we had to make a book explaining some key concepts about plate tectonics. My book was called, “Alex and the Tectonic Plates.” 

During this Project I used the skill of Demonstrating an Understanding and Appreciation of Evidence. I used this skill well I was adding key concepts in my books. The reason I don’t think I improved this skill in any way, was because I could have done this same work at the beginning of the project. 

With our second skill which was Questioning and Predicting I don’t think I improved as I have always been able to question and predict at a similar level to this. I also have always been able have a sustained intellectual curiosity with science related material. I don’t think this skill really needs much improvement. I used this skill during the building knowledge stage as I needed to learn about different subjects to help create my book.

The third skill which is Applying and Innovating, I didn’t really notice myself using through out this project. Although, If I look back at the project now I think when we presented our books to the grade 4’s and 5’s we used it. Another instance when I used this skill was, when I helped others at the start of the project create some ideas. I’m honestly not sure if I improved this skill as I never really thought about until this project.

Here I have my book imbedded into this post for you to see below,
