I created a juggling video that showed skills and tricks for juggling. My successes were that I was able to juggle well and not bad since I haven’t juggled in a long time. My challenges were that I wasn’t really good at tricks since I hadn’t practiced the tricks I knew in a long time but I practiced them and got better. I think I will continue with the juggling video, but I will add more tricks and skills to show the audience how to do more tricks and skills. Also next time I might teach the audience how to juggle. My impact is that I taught people how to do juggling tricks and skills if they already knew how to juggle.<iframe

I think the impact project went pretty well. I worked with two people from 5-JL. Our focus was saving electricity and leading a healthy lifestyle. We did this because a lot of people are obese and if we don’t save electricity in the future the world will be dark. Our plan was to lead a sports session on a Friday and a Saturday also we planned to everyday to close the lights for 10 minutes and go outside so we will save electricity and have a healthy life by going outside. If the whole world closes the lights for ten minutes everyday then after one year we will save 25,550,000,000 electricity. We presented this to 2 second grade classes 2-SF and 2-MM. We told 2-SF that we were having a sports session on Friday at 3:30-4:30pm and a lot of people came to the sports session and we did a lot of sports and games like soccer, tag, basketball, and dodgeball. At the end of the sports session we gave the kids a survey and asked them how they felt about the sports session and how they felt about saving electricity. We told 2-MM that the sports session was on Saturday at 3:30-4:30pm at the field and we forgot to tell them that we changed the place to the dome. Then on Saturday there was a soccer competition and a lot of people left because they didn’t know it was actually in the dome so there was only a few people that went on the Saturday sports session. If I would do this again I would tell 2-MM that we changed the location of the sports session. We also made a IMovie to tell them about what we did and how this will impact us. At the impact fair we did pretty well a lot of people came to us and asked us some questions and we explained to them about what we did and we also showed them the IMovie that we made. Overall I think our impact project went really well and we had a lot of fun.

Author Connection: Setting I think the author chose a village for a setting is because she might of lived in a village before.

My system was the digestive system. The digestive system was a fun system to study. The digestive system is a system that helps you digest the food you eat. The digestive system is made out of tubes that connect with each other.

I did my presentation alone. For when I did the audience participation part I made them split into 2 groups and build the digestive system. I thought my presentation was pretty successful but I was really nervous during the presentation. My presentation was successful because nothing went wrong with the presentation and everything worked out.

When we were learning about all the human body systems in the rotations I thought my favorite system we learned was the nervous system because Mrs.Dawn showed us a cool nervous system video. I thought the digestive system was pretty cool when we dissected the pig heart, but I wished when Mr.Daw blew the lungs it would work. I liked all of the rotations and I didn’t like any of them.

I thought puberty was pretty fun but I don’t think it was that disgusting. I didn’t really like when the doctor came because I didn’t really get her because her english was not really god.

I think learning all the human body systems and puberty will really help because in the future you might become a doctor. Also when you go through puberty learning about puberty will help you to get through puberty.

1.  Explain why you think it is important to know how to find equivalent fractions with common denominators.
                      Because if you don’t you will not know how to add with different denominators
2.  What is one part of this unit that you really learned well.  Why?
                      Adding and multiplying fractions because before I didn’t know anything and now I know how to add subtract and multiply
3.  What is something you are still struggling with from this unit?  How are you going to get better?
                       Multiplying mixed numbers and mixed numbers I am getting better by practicing more multiplying.
4.  What do you think should be next and why do you think this?
                        I think dividing fractions because we all ready learned multiplying, adding, and subtracting but we haven’t learned division of fractions yet
