This half of the year I only had science and humanities for my plp classes i ha lots of fun in both of those classes but right now I’m going to talk about the good things I did in those projects and the thing that I could of done better. Just to name some of the projects we did this year we had make a poster for kids, I had to make a game on a new website called scratch
My first project I had was in science and I had to make a health poster for kids and at first I though that the teachers would just be kidding and that they wouldn’t be put up in schools but I was wrong they didn’t put them up in our school but they put up the posters they we made in to elementary schools, I had really liked this project because we had to use the germ designs that first graders gave use so we would take a picture and make an poster with the drawings they made for our project, I would say that my poster turned out pretty good but I could of changed some things about it, we made the posters on a app called Canva and we had to take pictures online that were not copy righted and use them in our adds with the germs on it but I could of chosen a better picture to put the germs on, in the end i had lots of fun doing this project.
Our first project for humanities this semester was called blue eyed brutes in helmets and other tall tales, for this project we had to a travel log on a historical figure for this I choose Christopher Columbus and we had to make a map of were he went we had to make a something called a word pack which is lots of words put in to a a shape that an app, we also had to make a sketch of our person or what they did and i made a sketch of Christopher Columbus then once we had all of that we had to make a travel log on what they did and we had to make it sound like a real log book so we got peer feedback and i had to redo it 4 times until it got accepted to hand it in then I put a old look on the book so make it look some what real, I don’t really know what I could of done better for this project but i had a really good time working with friends on this project.
This project was called mind over matter, The second science project we had was so much fun and stressful project I had in science, for this project We had to make a video game on an app called scratch I had never used before and in this app it’s meant to teach people how to make apps using basic code blocks and we had to make a game using atoms so i made a game similar to flappy bird and I had made the character an Atom and I made the tubes spike of ice because atoms get all messed up by ice so that’s why I made it that way, we also go to show of our game to the class and we got some critique from our class mates then we got to publish our games online on the scratch website for people to play, I had lots of fun on this project I would say it was my favourite one I had done but I could change some things on my game like I could of changed the back round and I cloud of put more detail in to the ice spikes and the atom.
This project was called consequences of colonization, For my second humanities project we had to make a script for a video on a painting from the discovery of North America and I got a painting with a man holding an Astro lobe [a mapping device] with some one taking notes and two natives on the left and the right side of the man in the middle, the back round takes place in the Columbia river,
And for this project we had to make notes on this picture then we had to re make a image in the eye of the natives so I had to draw most of the detail on the man in the middle I also did keep in the man to the left taking notes but I made both of them in a bit of a lighter grey so I could put black on the natives so I could make them stand out since this is the eye of the native I would think that to them there would of been way more of then so I drew four of them in the re-interpretation and I drew the trees bigger because to them it might look and feel bigger I also made a lot of detail on this drawing, after we did that we had to make a video script explaining why we made these changes and how these events changed the world to this day, I was away on a family trip for most of the time the project so most of the work I had to hand in lat but at the same time i had wifi at most of these places and I could of done work then and when i came back from the trip i could of attended tutorial time but I didn’t so most of this project was choppy and in total this project could of been better all around,
This project was called journey to the centre of the Earth and for this project we had we had to make a fossil out of plaster in to the shape of a dinosaur or a type of plant and my group got dinosaurs so we had to make the plaster and we had to imprint the The toy in to clay then we had to pour the plaster in to it and we had to wait to take it our and once we took it out of the clay we had a fossil then we had to make a gif of one of the three things we are studying either sea floor spreading, tectonic plates and how they move or when plates collide and make mountains I choose how mountains are formed and I hade to animate each frame one by one to make the gif, and now we are working in the third keystone and we are making a recipe for a natural disaster and what causes them but we are like just started with this project so there isn’t any final project yet so we will what for it to come,
This project was called the medium is the message/spring exhibition, and we had to make a advertisement based on a company we visited on out Oregon trip I was put in to the group called high life adventures and that company was based on a zip lining park so we had to make questions for the owners of the company, then we asked them the questions and then we got to go zip lining after obviously we aren’t just going to interview them and not go zip lining but any ways when we got back from the trip we were put in to the rest of out group so we could all stay on track and we got to making the adds for the company with the Notes we took from the interview once we made the first draft we had some critique from our group and we all had to make many drafts and I can say my first draft was so bad it looked horrible, nut then we kept repeating the cycle and we all ended up with some pretty sweet looking adds for our exhibition since these adds were going to be presented to the public so we started planing out what we where going to do for our table since we have to make I match the theme of our company and we needed to bring props for the table and snacks for the parents so we made tree cookies and we all wore black pants dark green shirt of jacket and a bike helmet and we presented to the parents and we all had a good time presenting our adds, something I could of done better is helped out more in the prop section i could of asked some people in the class if they had any thing or i could of made some because our table looked a bit to empty, over all this was my favourite project in humanities this whole school year,
Thank you for coming to my presentation of my learning as a plp student.
