Winter exhibition

Hi guys for this blog post I will be talking about something I did just before winter break called the PLP winter exhibition where we presented a poster about a religion we were given but before I talk about that I have to go back to the start of the project.

There were some things that we did before what I’m about to talk about but since I already covered those in a different blog post here is a link.

So after we did are explain everything’s we started to work on something called a religious worldview photo documentary for that we had to go on two field trips where we visited multiple Different religious places of worship, for example, we went to a Buddhist temple  where we learned more about the Buddhist religion. During these visits, we took tons of photos of our visits to put in the photo documentary.

After all of these field trips we started on our photo documentaries, first we sorted through all of our photos and put them together for the first draft of our photo documentary. After we handed in the first draft of are photo documentary we got some feedback and started working on my second draft some of the feedback I got on my first draft was that I needed to take out the music and change some of the transitions so nobody got offended.

After I finished all of those changes I handed in my second draft. After that we got some more feed back some of the things I ended up having to change is I had to change some photos add some new titles I also had to take a few new photos but sadly I ran out of time to do that and by that I mean take new photos.

By the time we finished are third draft we had started are main thing for the winter exhibition are winter exhibition poster for that what we had to do was we were put in groups and given an religion to make a poster about that poster had to display there seven aspects of world view.

Are first draft wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worstThen we made are second draft where we changed a few things  like we added a a guy in the middle and a few things on the side one issue the guy looked super creepy because the person in a re group drew him very creepy  any way for are third draft what we changed is we redrew the priest  we also added some titles to the facts and other things we had around the side of the priest.

After that we made are final draft we switched out the priest for a silent of jesus we also changed the background color. Now we were finally done are poster and it was time to prepare for the winter exhibition the first thing we had to was make snacks for around 100 people so we made hot cross cookies I made half and the other half was made by someone in my group named felix (his blog link here) after all of that it was finally the day of the winter exhibition.

we set up are stand and the night started it was very fun I really enjoyed it  and I cant wait till the next time we do one we got tons of nice people who came to are stand who asked great questions overall   My favorite part was the grade 11 classes project on the 1950s which was an interactive walkthrough.

After all of that we cleaned up and the night was over. Overall I think this experience was super-fun and I can’t wait to do it again.

Over this term I think I have improved tremendously for example I’ve gotten better at writing I’ve expanded my worldview and I’ve become better at asking questions. Ok now lets start talking about how I have improved in specific subjects to start this off lets talk about humanity’s and I think the best way to start off humanity’s is to talk about in my opinion the biggest project of the term the winter exhibition or to be more accurate the religious world view post photo documentary and all that other fun stuff. (if you want to hear about the winter exhibition in detail please check out my other blog post here.) ok one thing that I think that has really changed over this term is my worldview (the reason I’m putting this one in humanity’s is because thats what we were working on for the first term) I think what changed my worldview so much was being able to see and here about tons of people different beliefs and how they viewed the world. One of my biggest struggles in humanity’s was and still is procrastination this is such a big struggle because I always think I have a ton of time then I just end up doing it the night before or even worse it gets late for example my winter exhibition blog post it was late because I kept thinking oh I have a ton of time and now its late so what I have learned from that is that I shouldn’t procrastinate and that even if I have a few days I should just it over with.


Some of the things that I learned in science this term is how tectonic plates cause earthquakes which I found very exiting. For example just before winter break we made a tectonics children’s book where we wrote a story for children that explained about tectonics in way that kids would understand. On of my biggest problems when it comes to science class is getting distracted I think I will combat that by turning off notifications for all apps not school related while at school . Some other things that I have learned during science class is what cells are and what they do.

For the third last class I will be talking about  is maker I’m really exited to talk about this one because this is my favourite class and we do and learn so much fun stuff for example right now we have been working on DI a very fun thing where students work on challenges that challenge there thinking and puzzle solving. Some other thing we have done is the basic iPad knowledges like photo taking and sketch note taking. I was really happy we worked on note taking because that’s something I have always had room to improve on.

 Now for the second last class math in math we worked on a ton of things that were very intriguing for example we worked on fractions which is a thing that I have always struggled with it didn’t really help that I get distracted in class. some of the things I learned about fractions and how to multiply and divide fractions but my favourite thing is what we are working on now aka geometry I like that because its a new chance for me to get better at focusing and because it just seems so awesome because I have always liked math.

 Now for the final thing I will be talking about PGP!! Some of the things the PGP has taught me is how to properly reflect on learning and how to structure reflections. 

Now finally just to recap we talked about my learning in many different subjects and how its improved and how it still needs to improve.
