Words Of Wisdom Slideshow



Something I have learned from doing this project is that every body has a good outlook on life and that all words of wisdom have an important meaning to them.

Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection

My favorite part of the field trip was playing all the games they used to have, because there were a lot of games and they were really fun.
Something new I learned was how they made bricks, They had to make the mixture out of clay, sand, and a little bit of water. Than they put the mixture onto a mold and when they took it out they would have to let it dry for a very long time and they would have to turn it over every day for a long time. Then they put the bricks in a huge clamp and make a fire underneath it to try to get the rest of the water out.
Some thing I learned about why the mormons moved west was because they were being persecuted. The people around them thought they were different and didn't like the way the worshiped.
Something I would want to learn more about and research would be what the black smith did and what tools they used, because I thought the black smith in Nauvoo was very interesting and the things they made were cool. I had a lot of fun on the trip to Nauvoo.

Moral Dilemma Literature Circles

SPOILER ALERT...

A moral dilemma is where a character is trying to decide to do the right or wrong thing. Sometimes it's hard to know witch one is the right thing to do.

I think the moral dilemma in Wish Me Luck by James Heneghan is that Jamie has to go to Canada and he doesn't know if he should try to be friends with Bleeker because he is the only one on the boat he really knows or just continue fighting with him and letting him beat him up. Or another dilemma could be that his parents are making him go to Canada to get away from war but he doesn't know if he should obey his parents and do what they think is good for him or try to sneak off the boat. The dilemma was solved by Jamie doing what his parents thought was good for him and he became friends with Bleeker.

The moral dilemma for The False Prince was that Sage was Prince Jaron and he had been hiding his identity going by the name of Sage but he had to decide to tell people that he was Prince Jaron or he had to keep his cover by letting everybody think that Prince Jaron was dead so that His father, King Eckberg didn't have to call war on Avenia.

If i was in Jamie's shoes i would go on the boat because i would not want to be close to war at all and i would become friends with Bleeker so i would have someone that i know to talk to that lived the same place as me. If i was in Sage's shoes i would probably not stay as Sage i would want to live with my family but i would just stay in our house and not let anyone see me except for all of the servants and other people that lived in the house.

Invent Iowa



     My Invention was the CatBit. It tracks your cat, tracks how many steps it gets every day, and tracks how much sleep your cat is getting and if it's getting too much sleep. you can get an app on your phone that helps you track all these things. There is a feature in the app that you can press a button that sends a signal to your cat to get up.

     The problem i was trying to solve was that sometimes cats aren't always active and my invention was to try to get cats to be more active and move more.  It helps you track your cat's activity too.  Maybe your cat was always hiding and you never knew where it was or it got lost outside and you needed to find it.

     My invention solves that problem because it's helping you track you cat's activity. It helps your cat get more activity and it helps you always be able to find your cat if it's lost.

     What i'm most proud of with this project is i think my board turned out good. I think my invention was good too because it's helping cat's and it's something not a lot of people would probably do.

     Some of the challenges i faced during this project were that i always forgot to write in my invention log. I kept messing up on my bibliography and had to keep redoing it and at first i had a hard time coming up with an idea.

     Something i would do to make my project better would be to maybe add a couple more things to my board and add more pictures because i only had one tiny picture and a model.

     Over all i think i did a good job on my project!

Independent Project

I did a slide show project on Aspergers Syndrome. What i like most about my project is that i learned a lot about Aspergers Syndrome. It's always been something iv'e been interested in.  The hardest part of this project was probably presenting because i don't like to present in front of a lot of people.  I think i improved as a learner because i got to practice presenting and i got a lot of good information on Aspergers. Something i would change would be that i could have added more pictures in my presentation and i could have added some more facts into my presentation. I had fun learning about aspergers.

2016-2017 1st blog post

This year some goals that i'm going to set for myself are to be positive about everything at school even though it might be hard or not as fun as some other things. Another goal i'm going to set for myself is try to fit in at least 30 minuets of reading time a night so i can meet my goal of 40 book during this year. One more goal i am going to set for my self is try to ask more questions to understand things more like if we are doing an assignment that is hard for me i can ask more questions to understand or raise my hand if i need more help. Those are some of the goals i am setting for myself this year. They are important to me because i am not going to get a good grade on the assignment if i don't ask questions. trying to fit the 30 minuets in every night is important because it is one of my assignments that i am getting graded on this year.  Last but not least i want to be positive about everything because i don't want to be negative about it because then i will not be acting nice then i could be putting people in a bad mood or not be doing good work and i won't get a good grade. so those are my goals and why they are important to me.

Sports and Games Around the World

For my project I studied Rythmic Gymnastics. I did a slide show for my presentation. The most interesting thing i learned was you can have a team routine in team routines you can have up to five people.
 
I would improve next time by talking louder and adding a little more information.
