Bring your kids to work day

Today I got the amazing opportunity to come with my mom to bring your kids to work day! My mom works for the urban horse project the urban horse project provides free access to connecting with horses and learning about them. I was able to go and see where it takes place and I was able to meet the horses and help out around the barn. This was a great experience and I recorded it all and made a video on it. This video shows how my day went and what I did. It also includes my interview I did with my moms boss who stared this program, I think it is really cool. She had great answers to all my questions and I think this experience has been great, I have learned more about my moms cool job. I love horses as well as my mom and I’ve been riding my whole life and I think this is a great job where you get to work with people all ages and help spread your passion and knowledge about horses.


Humanities reflection 🥾🏔️


Have you ever been stuck driving around in a school bus with 20 other kids for a week?

Well, I have. Can you imagine? For hours on end in a hot bus with annoying kids and annoyed teachers. This was all because my class and I were trying to figure out: “how has the geography of the west shaped who we are today.” By using people and information around us in Alberta. We stopped at many significant and historical places as well as discovering and learning about the incredible history of the Rockies in Alberta. Even throughout all the hikes, driving, and all the work we did, we got through it and I was able to enjoy the beauty of Alberta! The geography of the west in Alberta has played a significant role in shaping who I am today. The stunning landscapes, like the Rocky Mountains have provided me with a deep appreciation for nature’s beauty and has offered opportunities  for adventure outdoors. Additionally, the unique ecosystems and natural resources in the region has influenced my understanding of environmental conservation and sustainability. Overall, the geography of the west in Alberta has definitely shaped my experiences, values, and connection to the natural world.

My thesis for this project: “tourists choose to visit Canadas west for its natural beauty and its rich historical value.” Most of the people I interviewed were here to see the natural beauty of Alberta. I used my thesis so I could have an idea or an understanding of what the people I interviewed would respond with. 

I also related my questions to my thesis.

For the reader to better understand what geography is we made a comic in an app “comic life” representing the five themes of geography.

I have taken away so much information and not only learnt but grown as a learner over a week long period. I have learnt how to be flexible in difficult situations (and got a lot better at hiking even though l wanted to roll down the mountain I got through it! 

 This is my multi touch book I tracked my journey throughout the trip on:

At every stop I learnt something. I was also asked to interview different people at multiple locations. I have written about that in my Maker reflection that is linked here-maker reflection-

To be honest, I did not love making this book because it stressed me out because we had so much work to do but I needed to remember that I was on a field study and not on vacation with my friends. 

I did not end up working that much on the book on the trip because I wanted to focus on what I was learning and later I would finish my book. Next time I will definitely try to be more productive because I have a short attention span on things. I often find myself getting distracted and getting off task sometimes. 

This sort of left me with very little time to finish my book because we also had a bunch of videos we needed to make for Maker. Since I didn’t have much time to make my book, it left me little time to decorate my book and proof read it. Next time, I want to make more time for myself to do my work.



I have taken away so much information and not only learnt but grown and a learner throughout  a week. I have learnt how to be flexible in difficult situations, (and gotten a lot better at hiking even though I wanted to roll down the mountain at times I got through it! This trip has helped me appreciate Alberta and its history ,and natural beauty. I now know more what west and different regions in Canada are like. I come out of this project with more knowledge and a memorable experience.

Maker reflection post

Maker reflection post:

Have you ever interviewed a stranger in public?

Well, I have, it was for my school project relating to a maker and humanities project we did on our tip to Alberta.

The driving question for this project was: how can I tell a story through a moving image?

I tried to help answer this question by all the videos I made!

Throughout this whole project I have learnt tons, most of how I can improve my public speaking and getting different and unique resources from multiple people. But that was not the only thing I learnt, I also was able to learn how to make better videos and I learnt how to tell stories though moving images even if the video didn’t have words you were still able to understand what was happening.

Silent Video:

The fist video we made was our silent video, we made this in the Ghost Town since there were many options for filming. This was super fun to do with my group, it was fun to see our ideas come to life through a moving image. Silent video means that there is no talking and we tried to tell the story by our movements and our expressions. When making a silent video you kind of need to exaggerate all of the movements or else viewers might be confused.






Next we had to make the TikTok style video! This was really fun for me because i use TikTok sometimes and its super fun and easy to make videos. We needed to make the TikTok’s relating to our trip and we could do fun trends. My videos told a story through a moving image because it showed some of the different places we wanted it to represent from our crazy journey!

Investigative Video:

I made this video by putting all my interviews together. If you don’t know what I’m talking about I’ll explain, on the trip we had to interview a couple of different places people so they could help me answer our driving question for humanities “how has the geography of the west shaped who we are?”So this video was basically a mix of humanities and maker: humanities because our questions were related to the humanities project the the video and the ending was about maker. To be honest I think that I could have made this video better, so next time I will try to edit it better and cut out the boring parts.

About Me Video:

The last video I made was about me! In this video we had to answer “what inspires me?”I made this video by including my biggest interests like riding, dance, crocheting, and more!

I think I could’ve of tried to answer the question a bit more throughout the video instead of just the end. I also think I could’ve made my voice on time with the images a bit more next time I will try and make my voice recording before adding the images so it can be more in time and then I wouldn’t need to to talk so fast at times and then I wouldn’t shudder as much. Besides that I think I displayed my interest pretty well and I was able to show my passions and show a bit of what my life was like through all the images I showed I think it was very visible to see that I am vey passionate about riding since I had many images of me riding.

I learnt how to tell a story through my photographs and my voice recording about myself. This has helped me tell stories better and I now know what I need to improve on for next time.

All these videos that I made help me get closer to the humanities driving question and the maker driving question. I can confidently say that I have improved at the video making skills even if some of them are not my best work, By making this reflection I now know what I can do better next time. This was a fun thing to do since I was able to be creative and make these personal and that is what I want to work on this year as I stated in my Learning Plan I want to work on making my work more me!

Thank you for reading feel free to check out my humanities post here:

🌷My Tpol 2023!🌷

“Thank you for coming to my presentation of learning. I am the expert on my own learning. I am also responsible and accountable for my own learning. You can expect me to give an honest evaluation of my progress. We will discuss my strengths and opportunities for growth. Thank you in advance for listening and for offering feedback that I can use to improve as a learner.”



Welcome to my Tpol! 

Now that I have done my Mpol and you know what it is, I will be presenting my Tpol. This stands for transitional presentation of learning. It is similar to my Mpol but I am going to be answering a different driving question:

Our Driving Question:

Why do I feel I am ready to advance to the next grade level?

Circular competences:

Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Oral Communication, Quantitative Literacy, and Written Communication.

Core competences:

Creativity, communication, critical, thinking, collaboration citizenship, and connectivity for future education.

At the beginning of the year I didn’t really know what to expect from PLP. I knew that we would work on iPads and they were field studies, but I did not know anything else I didn’t even know we had Mpols and Tpols!

This year has taught me so much! I am happy I have a got to be in this fun program. I think that I am ready to go onto grade 9 because I have learnt many things in PLP and I feel ready to advance to next year. I have met many new people this year and they are fortunately are all going to be in PLP next year! A great way for me to get to know more people was field trips, for example, the start of the year, even though this wasn’t part of PLP I met many new people at outdoor school! I think because you stay in the same cabin as someone you get to know them better. Same thing, like when we went to Oregon for example, I was friends with some of these people, but we weren’t super close but after Oregon we became a lot closer and got to know each other better!

I drew this willow tree because it represents my growth as a learner this year. Willow trees are large trees with long, flowing branches and leaves, the willow tree often symbolizes flexibility, and adaptability. And I think I have had to adapt this year going into high school and I will need to continue to adapt as i continue to grow and learn next year. The branches also represent my growth and new skills I’ve learnt as well as the roots resembling important things that I will use later in life.

A project I am am the least proud of is our precision chart, even though I loved the project we did about advertising for the Hatfield marine science center. Some of the work we did after was not my favourite.

I think this was because I did it a bit messy and I was under stress it was also a bit complicated with a sub.

I could’ve improved this by giving myself more time to work on it and I also could’ve done it better by being less messy and engaging more. I feel I am much better at things that I find interesting example if I am doing a project interests me I am much more likely for me to do better and spend more time on it.

 Oregon trip and advertising

One of my favourite things I’ve done this year in PLP is definitely going to Oregon. I learned many things there and it was a great experience. (to read more about that you can go to my blog post about it.)

What did I find most boring?

Though this wasn’t a project it was a keystone, I found that the who am I science was not my favourite. Since I do not like math and it’s kind of confusing to me. The reason I don’t is because I like to be creative, and subjects like a math tend to not be my favourite. I like projects where I can be creative like the advertisements we did in Oregon. I think the reason I like the Oregon trip so much and the project we did was because we could think outside the box and we could basically do whatever we wanted it to our ads. Things like math on the other hand you cannot do that you have to stay in a box with the rules. It’s just black and white. This is why I love subjects and projects like our advertising ones.

What does my work reveal about me a learner?

I would like to say that I am creative and I say this because I love art and I love thinking outside of the box. Some evidence to this would be my Pandora’s box for the winter exhibition and many people that I presented it to said I was very creative and they loved my detailed boxes! Another example are some of the projects we have done as well as maker and working on my advertisement for Oregon. My creativity really forms when we are doing crafty projects like the Pandora’s box and projects similar to that .

I would love to do more projects like this in the future since I find that they are super fun and lets me be more artistic.

Projects like this help me explore both my circular and core competencies like creativity, and creative thinking.

Skills have I needed to develop:

Throughout PLP I have needed to develop new skills than what I used in elementary school. 

Learning to use my iPad

When I first started, PLP I was not very good with technology and I still am not that advanced but, PLP has helped me learn many new things with iPads, and other skills for example, before I began PLP I didn’t even know how to copy and paste! Now I would like to say that I have become better with technology but I can definitely continue to grow my knowledge on using technology, since it will used in my future.

Revisions and critique:

I have had to do quite a few revisions this year but I am happy I did! Revisions and critiques from both peers and teachers has helped me improve my work to its full potential. Without my revisions I wouldn’t be able to get the grades I was reaching for this year.

An example of me getting revisions is during our process of making ads for the Hatfield Marine science center. I had to make many drafts for this project because we wanted our ads to turn out as best as possible. I think revisions and critique help me allot because even if they are annoying you can always improve on everything you do.

Here are some of the drafts I did to get my final advertisement:


I think a great thing about PLP is that you can keep revising your work till it’s the best it can be. So you can get the best grade possible that you will be happy with.

I think this is a good skill to have in life and I think this skill set will help me be prepared for grade 9.

Here was my learning plan!

I think I have reached my learning goals this year, and I will make sure to set higher goals for myself next year so I won’t have to change my learning plan again.

I think I am ready and exited for grade nine. It will be different not being the youngest in the school anymore. I also am really looking forward to the Alberta field trip that the grade 9’s get to do. If a younger student was asking me if they should apply to PLP I would definitely recommend it because I believe that we have learnt more than the people doing the regular program. I would say that it’s more interesting work and also that you get to choose how you want to learn and how to present your learning. I’m happy that I got into PLP and is looking forward to develop into a more sophisticated learner and person.

Thank you for listening to my TPOL!

Oregon field study!🐙

Before I had the opportunity to go to Oregon I didn’t really know what to expect as I did not know much very about the United States and I had only been there once before this trip. I did not expect that Oregon which is a 8 hour drive away to be similar to many  places that we have here, mind you some places were also very different; like the fist ever bench we went to had a sandy beach with sand dunes but again there were also many places there that looked pretty similar to the north shore. One thing that shocked me was that it was a lot colder than in Oregon than in Vancouver at the time which is weird because we live further north than Oregon.

I learned so many things in Oregon that we documented all in a journal that is right here up here👆

Some of my biggest takeaways from this trip are:

Hatfield marine science center!

During one of our visits at the center we had the opportunity to go to the beach to suck up shrimp with these interesting suction devices. It was super cool to learn about them that we were finding, as well as the experiments we did with them after we measured the shrimp to see if females or males were larger. This capturing part was interesting to me because I had never seen that being done before and it was cool to learn how to do it. It was also fun when we caught our first shrimp because our first few tries were fails but when we practiced our technique, we got better and we ended up catching lots of shrimp in the end! We even caught five shrimp in one try! This is what the tolls looked like that we used.👇


Speaking of the Hatfield marine science center this was also the company I made an advertisement for, as well as interviewing a person from their company. By doing this interview, I learned that the center is unique because they offer hands on  learning and an experience to learn about Oregon and its gorgeous coast. They also give you an amazing experience by seeing the octopus and other sea animals living in Oregon. The Center is unique because it offers opportunities to be able to see things you don’t normally see; like fish and skeletons of marine animals. They make a positive impact by giving education for everyone in a fun and innovative way, as well as letting parents see their kids grow and learn in a fun and interactive way. Hatfield marine science centre also gives awareness for nature and marine biology not only with their awesome visitor center but also by the experiments they do in the lab with marine animals and college students. Hatfield Marine Science Centre loves to see people all ages, come and visit their visitor centre where they can learn about organs costs!

Another cool  thing that we saw was the shipwreck that we visited on our  the first night. Even though we’re just playing around on the beach I found the shipwreck to be super interesting, and I was really shocked when we went to the Columbia River Maritime museum that there was a whole section about that ship and items from it. I thought this was really interesting as there was even a book showing photos of how the ship had eroded over time. The ship was called peter Iredale and is located in the fort Stevens state park.



Speaking of Fort Stevens, another interesting thing about Fort Stevens was visiting. The actual fort. This visit was really cool because we got a tour of the underground part of it where they kept the gun battery during World War II it was really neat because there was a lot to see and it was sort of like a maze. It was also really cold down there and we learned that there was actually a fire down there but no one tried to save the bunkers, so all that was left was the concrete walls. We learned that it was liveable down there and that there was wood on some of the walls and beds were the workers would sleep. They also had special rooms for cannons and gun powder. I learned that when the Japanese shot at the fort from a ship 17 times but missed! The fort did not fire back because they did not want to give away their location.( since you can’t see it from the water.) We also learned how they would fire the guns and we even got to look around in the Fort museum.


However My biggest takeaway from this field trip was Yaquina head Lighthouse and beach. This was a really cool place because we got to go tide pooling with Miss Kadi! This was a really fun way to learn since there were so many interesting animals to see in the tide pools, and we even got to see baby seals! There was also a super cool cave by the beach that we got to go inside. I loved exploring the sea here and it was a really fun day! We also got to do a quest which helped me with my teamwork and figuring out things as a group. It was amazing because when we got to the top of the hill there was an incredible view of the gorgeous beach and ocean with people surfing!

IMG_5260 IMG_5291

In conclusion I have learned more during this field study than i would have if it was just another regular week at school. Learning outside the classroom is so much more interesting because you really get to experience things in real life instead of just reading about it. I also got to know the people in my program a lot better and I feel like we have come together as team. I am looking forward to doing a lot more field studies in PLP next year. 🤍

Consequences of colonization!

Hello! Welcome back to my blog

During these past few months me and my class have been focusing on colonization and how it has affected different groups of people. In the beginning, we had a couple options on different groups that we could focus on. Our options were the fille de roi (the group I chose )which were women from France that immigrated to Canada, Indigenous the to Canada, but had many things taken away from them, because of the Europeans, The missionaries, who took everything from the indigenous, and try to spread the religion of Christianity, wealthy men, which came to Canada for trading and new opportunities, and poor men who were used for labor, and also saw new opportunities in Canada.

Overall, all these groups had different perspectives on Canada and it’s colonization.

For this project, our driving question for this was; What did European settlement mean for all involved?

To answer our driving question, we worked on these following keystones to find an answer tour question. I learned that there were many different perspectives on colonization and that colonization meant different things for different groups of people.

the group I was studying was The Fille De Roi, the Fille De Roi were young unmarried women who immigrated to new France between 1663 and 1673. They were sponsored by the king and were usually poor orphans with no future in France. Around 800 women from France were sent to Canada for a better life and more opportunities.


For our first keystone, our job is to learn a bit about the group we chose to learn about.
and after a bit of research to show our learning, our task was to fill out the sheet.👇


This was a great way for me to learn about the group I was focussing on, and help me understand their world view on colonization before and after coming to Canada. It also helped me understand more what this project was going to be about.


For keystone 2  we were working on a paragraph outline.

After Keystone 1, we were put into groups with people that were studying the other groups of people so you could learn a bit more about the other groups. This was also a good chance for us to look at different world views during colonization.


I think I did a pretty good job with this because I got an 🌈(“a”)and this was a good way to sum up everything I learned about these different groups of people and their perspective.



For Keystone three basically all we did was make a summary of the group you were focussing on so our group could make a short video. We were also supposed to draw a something that we thought represented the group you were focussing on.

Then we made it all into a video in an app called AR Makr.

😬I can’t show the final video because it’s too long to add into my blog😬

I think this turned out OK if I would’ve done it again I would’ve not rushed as much and talked a bit louder. I also think me and my group could’ve been more productive working on it.

One major thing I also learned about was the beaver pelt industry, and how it has had a big impact on Canada and its growth. I found this actually really interesting when we were doing a paragraph on a symbol that we think represents Canada and I chose beavers. This actually taught me a lot about the beaver pelt industry even before we started learning about it, I’m actually really proud of this paragraph and I think it’s one of the best things I’ve done throughout this project.

if you want to take a look, I have the QR code here👇


In conclusion, I have learned a lot more about the impacts from colonization, as well as the different perspectives on different groups of people.

see you next time!



Science video game blog reflection


Hello welcome back to my blog, it’s been a while since I posted, and last time I posted was before spring break!

Now, I rememberer saying I was excited to see what we were learning about after spring break and now that it’s after spring break, and I am confident on saying that I have had fun learning about matter, molecules ,atoms, solid, liquid, gas, plasma and more! 

🩷First keystone!🩷

For our first keystone our task was to do a who am I using the mass of a random object. This was pretty simple but we did need to use a bit of math to figure this out. ☹️Overall it did teach me that mass dose not equal weight and it taught me about chemical and physical properties.

Can you guess what object I am describing?

🤍Keystone 2!🤍

Keystone two was a bit more fun because we got to do on hands learning, and we got to do an experiment on gummy bear diffusion! Basically our job was to use two substances of our choice to see which gummy bear would defuse first. We also needed to observe as we experimented and as time went by. 

Me and my partner decided to start with one jar carbonated water and one with normal cold water. What we didn’t realize was that you needed warm or boiling water for the gummy to actually defuse. So we decided to do a second experiment using warm water and a second one using vinegar, baking soda, and salt you can see our observations in this slide show.

To see our slide show👇

Gummy bear

❤️‍🔥Final keystone!❤️‍🔥

For our final keystone we had to make Video games based on what we had learned like molecules or atoms, at fist I was going to use scratch to make some sort of flappy bird game that was like molecules that changed shape depending on what heat they went through( I know it make no sense) but I soon realized that was very ambitious and I sucked at using scratch. So then my teacher had the great idea to let me work with my friend!

This went very well and we ended up doing a trivia thing on geometry dash by making our own obstacles and questions! here is a screen recording of our game (you get the question wrong you die)

Here is a screen recording to our game!👇



Over all, I have had allot of fun learning about science and I loved the project we got to do.They made my learning so much more fun and enjoyable!

see you next time,👋

🦠small but mighty💪

💪Small but mighty!🦠


Our fist science semester this year has been super fun and new for me!

Throughout this semester I was able to experience new ways of learning, from microscopes to learning about our immune system. During this time I have stretched my thinking to look more in depth with everything around us. A good example of this was when I swabbed my iPad and noticed how much bacteria was on it! (Which I talk about more later). During the timeline of this project I have learnt many new things. One of my favourite parts was looking at random things under a microscope! It was super interesting for me sinceI had never done anything like that before!

To start off at our fist keystone we begin with using microscopes to look at pond water and other things we find outdoors and in class, but we later moved on to harvesting bacteria from surfaces in our school with Petri dishes!

To do this we would swab a surface of our school and then rub it on a Petri dish next we would tape it up and make observations as time goes by. I decided to swab my iPad screen as well as the door handle to our classroom.

Throughout this keystone we would document/record about it in our feild journal (which has more information about our experiment!)

Here is my field journal! ⤵️

For our next keystone we used the information we learned about pathogens and different cells in our immune system that helps us fight them off! Our job was to make characters based on the cells we learned about. To make these I drew sea animals based on different cells using procreate, and this was my final product:

I am super happy with the result and this might be my favourite activity we did!

In this next keystone we were learning more about vaccines, anti vaccinators, bias opinions, and why people avoid getting the vaccine. Our job was to make a poster with a friend and bust a myth about reason to avoid the vaccine.

here was the poster we made:

I also wrote this about bias opinions to connect to this.

I am overall proud of the finished product, and to make this we used the app Canva for the format! If i were to do this again I would use a different myth like, “why do people think the government put micro chips in vaccines?”

Speaking of posters we also made a second heath poster for kids based on vaccines! (Individually)

This was our final keystone to combine everything we learnt this team!

In this poster we were also required to add a drawing from a kinder gardener of bacteria/pathogens.

This was super fun to make because we had allot of freedom in making this and it let us be creative and use our imagination. I also used Canva for the format because I started making my fist draft on pages and I really wasn’t proud of it. So my friend helped me use Canva, and now I am super happy with the result!

Overall this project has helped me stretch my thinking and it has helped me learn about things like Bactria, pathogens, vaccines microscopes and more! I can’t wait to learn more in science after spring break!

Bye for now


The journal of Christopher Columbus


Recently in school we have been working on a really cool project! About the history of global exploration and why explores wanted to explore! We started this project off by learning about the Vikings, which later lead to learning about explores and why people wanted to explore. We found that it was for these three main reasons; Gold, Glory, and God. Our next task was to write about either a made up explorer or a real life one, and I chose Christopher Columbus, and decided to write my story as it was his journal. If you read carefully you will realize I mention Gold, Glory, and God. I hope you enjoy his journal!



My Mpol!



This is my MPOL something non PLP learners would be confused by. MPOL stands for midway presentation of learning. We do this instead of parent teacher conferences which instead of rushed five minute talks about my learning. I will present a blog reflection that i am making about the learning i have done this year.

In my mPOL I am going to be talking about my learning experience in PLP.

Our Driving Questions:

  • How have i demonstrated my growth as a learner so far this year?
  • I have definitely improved this year and I know that by looking at my first few assignments 
  • How can i sharpen my Learning Plan to ensure I will reach my learning targets by the end of this school year? I am going to change my learning plan in humanities because as. A learner, I think I might want to change my learning goal in humanities to get a 🌈 instead of a sun, because I think I would rather get revisions giving feedback on how to get rainbows instead so I can extend my learning to the peak of its abilities this way I can be happier with the results of my grades.

Circular competences:

Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Oral Communication, Quantitative Literacy, and Written Communication.

Core competences:


Skills I have improved on that I can continue to develop:


I have improved on my writing skills allot this year and I would like to continue to develop my writing to its full and best potential. I can achieve this by using my curricular competences like creative thinking and literacy.


I have meet many new people in PLP thanks to the random seating plans! This has helped me get to know more people by developing and expanding my communication. And this helps me get to collaborate with different people!

Before We started using the seating plans I Barely knew anyone’s names. I would like to expand my knowledge in communication with other people from PLP that I don’t know as well, in the future!I have used my core competences like my communication, and collaboration.

What does my work in PLP reveal about me as a learner?

I would like to say that I am quite Creative and I say this because I love art and I love thinking outside of the box. some evidence to this would be for example my Pandora’s box for the winter exhibition many people that I presented to said I was very creative and they loved my detailed boxes! the work we have done maybe hasn’t shown that yet but my creativity really forms when we are doing crafty projects like the Pandora’s box.

I would love to do more projects like this in the future since I find that they are super fun and exciting to make!

Projects like this help me explore both my circular and core competencies like, creativity, and creative thinking.

Revisions and critique:

I have gotten a few revisions this year but I am happy I did! Revisions and critiques to my work from both peers and teachers has helped me improve my work to its full potential. Without my revisions I wouldn’t be able to get the grades I was reaching for this year.

An example of why feedback is so important is because when i was making my mPOL i got feedback on what i was doing wrong that i could improve by talking less about what the project was and more on my learning plan. I grew by using curricular and core competence and i took that feedback i got and used it to improve on this.

Here was my learning plan!

To break down my learning  lets start off with maker!


In maker my learning goal was to get 🌈’s

(Which I achieved)

In maker we have done a total of 12 assignments/projects. 

Some of these key projects i did in maker that has showed my growth in these following projects.

User Guide

My user guide was the first writing project I did in maker I am proud of this because I got a 🌈 and my teacher liked it . Some of the skills I developed while doing this were writing on a professional and organized format and peer critique. I also explored my circular competences like, Quantitative Literacy, and Written Communication.

Big Life Journal

I loved this project because I got to plan out my future and write about my passions. This let me expand my knowledge about myself and I was able to be creative by writing and drawing. I also feel like I got more in depth with my passions and realized why i love them so much.

This helped me with my writing skills and my creativity (using both core and curricular competencies)


Making Interesting Images

For this assignment we were working on taking different images using new skills on our iPad. I learnt allot of different ways to make my images better and I had fun learning and participating in this project! Using the markup skill shows how different people see our world and and vision the surroundings around us. This shows our perspective of the world because I might see things/draw stuff differently then one of my peers would, and that’s what makes us unique! this also might tell about you about me as a learner depending on how unique and different my drawings are.

Some skills i can take away from this that I didn’t already know were lighting and exposure, different angles and perspectives, markup on my images, silhouettes and more! 

I explored both my curricular competences as well as my core comediennes like, creative thinking as well as my critical thinking during the span of this project.

if you want to see what this project looked like you can check out my post/reflection on it!

Pandora’s Box 

This project was our first exhibition it helped me improve my circular competences and core competences by presenting, communicating, socializing and learning new things about PLP and other projects. I made two boxes for the exhibition based on the movie avatar. One box I made was showing our polluted and destroyed planet in the future, and humans heading over to my other box ( the one representing pandora) trying to take over pandora like they did in the movie.

Doing this project helped me be more confident in presenting to strangers since it was my fist time doing so. This project will help me be prepared for our next exhibition in the spring.(that I am very excited about!)

If you are interested in wanting to see my reflection on this project you can find my blog post on it!


For humanities my learning goal was to get ☀️’s(which I did achieve but I would like to change that goal to a rainbow 🌈)

In humanities I have done 11 Assignments/projects overall but I will just show some that I think have best represented my growth as a learner.

The outsiders

A project I am least proud of this year is probably my outsiders novel reading roles journal the reason I think this is because I was just learning how to use my iPad properly and I did not put as much effort in this project as I did with my other projects. I also think I could have done much better in this if I had organized the due dates better, and put more effort into my writing.

I also got a couple revisions on some of my roles because, I was talking with mr. Harris and he asked me if I thought I could improve or revise any of my roles. I said a couple things I could focus on to improve and he said it was great that i was aware of improvements i could make. Overall this project did help me with my skills as a learner like, writing and communication with peers.

here was our final book cover:

Middle Ages slideshow

I found the humanities sector about the Middle Ages really interesting because at the start I thought I didn’t know any thing about the Middle Ages but I soon learnt so much new knolage about this topic that I didn’t before i could also make connections with what i was learning to prior knowledge. Overall for this project I think it was really fun and I have a lot of interesting information to take away from this project. I got a couple revisions that I fixed and after I got an ☀️.

Crusades slideshow

This was the third keystone to our humanities (leading on from the Middle Ages) 

Since this was my second power point I had a bit more experience and knolage to put into my second one so I think I did better on this one because I got a 🌈, which I am really happy about!

Both these projects helped me with my competencies for example, WRITING SKILLS, CITIZENSHIP AND CONNECTIVITY FOR THE FUTURE EDUCATION.

If you are interested to see my reflections on these power points you can check out my blog post on that.

Keystone#1 world view and mind note 

This assignment is a good example of how i have improved as a learner, and how far I have come with my writing skills, understanding, and dedication to PLP.

I fell like at the start of the year I wasn’t dedicating my learning as much as I am now at the start of the year. I think this because I was still working like I was in elementary school and I think now I could have done a better job in this project so my work could reach the peak of its ability.


PLP has been really fun for me and I would like to continue to do this next year. I think that I have improved a lot as a learner and I have improved with my writing skills especially. I would like to keep getting better at everything I have improved on.

PLP has helped me be more creative and it has helped me meet many new people overall, I think that I have done a good job reaching my learning plan this year. Thank you for reading about my mPOL !
