Hello internet! We recently finished a project named Argh Matey, which is project that us scimathics Humanities combined , and i thought that was pretty cool! The humanities s part of this project is the history and story of our explorer that existed in 1400-1600; and the scimathics part is the part about cells, diseases, bacteria, and viruses.
For my humanities part I chose Christopher Columbus -who rediscovered America- And for my scimathics part I chose a virus call the smallpox. The driving question of this project is: How do cells and diseases interact? and, What is the significance of global exploration? now for all those question our teachers taught us how to answers them and we combined them and put them into our comic book. For the first question how a disease and cell is where a disease wants to take over the body it has to kill all the white cells first and to do that it has to interact with all the cells. For the second question the significance of global exploration it the connect the world together.
Moving on, here is the final product of this project, I first made in Comic Life that, by taking screenshots I exported the book into Book Creator so I can embed it. Here the result!
I know the cover isn’t the best but i hope you like the content of it. Here some drawings i used as the background.
Here’s a blooper:
Well I didn’t know Christopher Columbus Likes to take selfies.
Anyway the curriculum competencies of this project are:
*Connect: How do I understand my own and others’ personal connection to texts I read, listen, and view?
I understand my own and other’s personal connection to texts I read, listen, and view by knowing there personal life and comparing it to texts I read, listen, and view.
*Establish Historical Significance: How do we make choices about what is worth remembering?
we make choices about what is worth remembering by trying to do so and learning form our pasts.
*demonstrate a sustained or curiosity about a scientific topic or problem of personal interest.
For this competency all my milestones and steppingstones are completed to the best of my ability.
*communicate idea, findings, and solution to problem using scientific language, representations,
and digital technologies
for this competency the Bacteria/virus characters interact in a scientific way with body cells in the comic book. Correct diagrams are used.
*Evaluating: Demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of evidence
Symptoms and logical outcomes of the chosen disease are included in the story.
anyways that’s in for this blog post, hope you enjoyed reading this blog post!
