DI just got more stressful!😩

Hello internet, I hope you are doing and feeling well. As you know, everything is cancelled and there is noting to do, which means all our schedules are messed up. For PLP kids, we were supposed to have our DI provincials last Saturday, but as I mentioned above, everything is cancelled, which includes DI provincials. At first, my classmates and I was celebrating, our obstinate PLP teacher moved DI online so we couldn’t escape it.By the way, if you haven’t seen my post about DI regionals click the link to check it out.

Anyways, going back a month ago I was in Fine Arts – picture this! – with four other people – Erin, Logan, Dries, and Josh, check out their blog and their most recent posts! my group and I thought about improving our props and back drops a bit. So what we were going to do is that we would use cardboard posters to make a 3D rocket and for our back drop we were going to make them out of takele cloths in Different colours, for example, the moon back drop would use black and grey cloths.

Well there isn’t  much to talk about since DI was cancelled and since I heard that I didn’t bring anything back home to work on, which I was in charge of the 3D rocket. As always here is some photos we used in the online tournament as either backdrops or just a photo.

I hope you enjoyed this post, stay home, stay strong, stay healthy!

DI regionals – It’ll Be Over in A FLASH📸

Hello internet, about two weeks ago, on an sunny yet chilly Saturday, the DI regionals is held in Seycove! I was so excited but also very nervous at the same time. Finally is 2:20pm, my group’s challenge time, after a ton of rehearsals we are ready to go, but still very nervous. 8 minutes later, the challenge is done and it surprisingly went… well! Our classmates loved it our teacher loved it, it went smoothly except that the flag didn’t really stand when we’re presenting.

Any ways, going back 1 month, was when we first met our groups and we know what categories we were assigned in. I was in Fine Arts – picture this! – with four other people – Erin, Logan, Dries, and Josh, check out their blog and their most recent posts! – one of the important thing our group first did was identifying and understanding the Challenge requirements as outlined in our challenge document, I was the DRI of the time choice elements which one of the most important part our presentation later. Right after we finished our first milestone for this project the teachers assigned the next, milestone two, where we map out a plan for the challenge and where we find a picture for our solution. Here is a picture of it!

To move on faster, we started milestone three, where we assign roles and responsibilities to each other, I was the DRI of the team choice element 1, we fist decided that a rocket was a good idea which later at the regionals we notice that the rocket was too small of a prop to be the team choice element. What hing the other fine arts team present, all of them doesn’t have cool cardboard costumes like our team so we decided that our team choice element is coming to be our costumes. Last but not least, milestone four! Milestone four is where we plan out the time of how long it will take us to do something. Since Im the DRI of the rocket (because we didn’t know we would be changing the team choice element to our costumes at that point) I planed that it would take us at least 30-60 minutes which it didn’t, the rocket toke us about 20-25 minutes.

Next was building time, I spent 1-3 hours, on average, after school working on our DI stuff. I didn’t have much pictures of us building but here’s some.

On the last Friday, we were so nervous, spent at least an hour on DI after school. The next day our flag wasn’t working, we started to panicking but according to my friends, classmates and teachers we did great! So here is a video of our presentation!

Have a great day, and see you next time!

⚔️This changes everything ⚔️

Hello reader! This week my class finished an humanities project. The driving question was: what was life like in the Middle Ages? How does it compare to today? Well my answer to the driving question is: life in the Middle Ages depends on you religion, your religion rules or life and you have to and if you want to go to heaven you have to do something good, comparing to today life is less depending on you religion.

Now lets get in to talking about what we did in this project. Basically we have to research 3 stuff and show how is has changed and continued.

milestones:

Milestones
Milestone 1: literacy plan, we plan when and what techniques are we going to use to help us read. Milestone 2: character letter, we write a letter to someone in 1195 as our role (mine was a lord) without giving out who we are. Milestone 3: book chats, we have book chats every Monday to show how far we are in the book and how much we have learn and understood the book. Milestone 4: research! We do research on the topic we picked with our partner. Milestone 5: presentation! We have one iPad Air playing our slide show with our notes open and we present to the class! Milestone 6: (this post)

After we have that done we present it with a partner, and my partner is Dries go checkout his blog and his post! I well show you a video of my presentation!

I learned I lot while doing this project, I learned how life in the Middle Ages depend a lot on religion, how education was not open to everyone and not everyone can afford it, I learned much more! Thank you for visiting my blog, hope to see you soon!

Chemistry Coding🧪👾

Hello reader!

Earlier this week I finished this scimatics and i have to write a blog post to reflect on the project. First lets take a look at The curricular competencies:

Questioning and predicting:
Demonstrate a sustained curiosity
about a scientific topic or problem
of personal interest.

Scientific communication:
communicate ideas, findings, and
solutions to problems using
scientific language,
representations, and digital
technologies.

Reasoning and analyzing: Use
logic and patterns (including
coding) to solve puzzles and play
games.
For questioning and predicting I had all my class time working on the project without distractions, for scientific communication I used scientific terms such as how a atom goes faster as it heats up, and for reasoning and analyzing I made a game close to geometry dash. One thing I should improve on is use more than one atom for my game. My best learning happened when I learned from other people’s games and when I’m researching for tutorials of how to code my game.

While do this project I learn how to use scratch and learn a lot about atoms, and if you want to checkout my game then click this link (its kinda bad honestly). That’s all for this post, peace!
