Celebrating 35 years of international education

Cranky Contraction Design Project

My biggest success was that I learned new techniques. For instance, I learned how to use materials to bend wires, drill things, hot glue things, etc. I look forward to Design class next school year so I can use these materials again to make new things.

The biggest obstacle for me during this project was that I struggled to hot glue on the foam to connect things. Therefore, I used a massive amount of time to hot glue things on.

If I did this project again, one thing I would do differently is that I would add more details to my cranky contraction. For example, I would add more colors to symbolize the meaning of my cranky contraction. I will do this by managing my time well.

反思说明

我在全班发言的时候,我觉得我应该语言上面多加深一些。比方说,我有时候会一直说“然后呢“,我下次会用”之后“,或”而后“之类的连接词。我还意识到我应该多看观众,而不是一直看着我们组画的画,并且我会更加的自信。我应该更详细的解释我们组画的画。我觉得下次我们组该提前完成这样的话,我们就可以在演讲之前练习。所以,我下次演讲的时候一定会按照以上的事情来演讲。我相信,下一次一定会有所改观。

Day One Simulation: Mesopotamia

In Humanities, our class did a simulation on Mesopotamia. During this activity, I personally was working on creating laws. We were focusing on creating laws for our civilization. Xiatian was focusing on architecture, Nina and Andrew were focusing on trading. Our biggest accomplishment as a civilization is that we split jobs equally. Our weakest point as a civilization was that we communicate with each other that well. If I were to do this simulation again, what I would have done differently was to discuss with my group members more actively, so that we would have gotten things done faster.

 

 

Day One Simulation Reflection-Ancient Mesopotamia

In Humanities, our class did a simulation on Mesopotamia. During this activity, I personally was working on creating laws. We were focusing on creating laws for our civilization. Xiatian was focusing on architecture, Nina and Andrew were focusing on trading. Our biggest accomplishment as a civilization is that we almost finished completing the top-secret envelop because if we finished it, we would’ve had even more resources to use. Our weakest point as a civilization was that we communicate with each other that well. If I were to do this simulation again, what I would have done differently was to discuss with my group members more actively, so that we would have gotten things done faster.

One Day: Food Reviews

 

I decided to go to Paul’s steak and eggs because I know that the food there is very delicious. I’ve been to the Chinese restaurant before so I know that the food there is absolutely gorgeous.

My first meal was at Paul’s steak and eggs, the cheeseburger and fries were very tasty and the cheese on the burger was very cheese-like and is just gorgeous. The food came really fast and the service was gorgeous.

For lunch, at the Chinese restaurant, the meat was very well cooked. The texture was very nice. The soup was very well cooked and the meat in the soup were both very soft and that’s how you know that the meat is ready.

 

Reflection:

I did well on tasting the food and explaining how is the food good in a way and bad in a way. One of this challenges I faced was that I was really full after the first meal and I still had literally three meals left to eat so next time I should eat less so that I can eat other things.

One Day: Food Reviews

For One Day, I want to taste all kinds of food and give reviews. I really want to go to Shine City to taste foods. A particular restaurant in Shine City Element Fresh that I really like. Another restaurant is Chuan-Chuan-Xiang.  A good source that will help me is watching some videos online, or a written based video would also help me about how people give reviews for food.

Ancient Chinese Civilization: Silk

In humanities class, Ms. Shannon had us randomly choose a civilization to study. I studied the Ancient Chinese civilization. Our group (plus me) had three members. I originally was going to study about Ancient Chinese Scriptwriting, however, two of my group members was sick so I joined another group that was studying silk. Together, we did a skit. I was the teacher in that skit and mainly introduced about the GRAPES of Ancient China.

Early Humans and Us: Communities

This is my Thinglink for early humans project. We first did research then we put all of our thinking and research in paragraphs. All of us had to write two separate paragraphs about early communication of humans and one for modern human communication. We made a timeline for human communication evolution. We made two infographics modern and past. We also found to primary sources for early human communication and two others for modern human communication. After that, we had to write a caption about the relevance of these primary sources. Finally, we uploaded everything into Thinglink.

Heat Transfer Project

I am most proud of our redesign for penguin dwelling and cup project. I would probably do differently is probably think more about the prettiness of our cup insulator more. The hardest thing about this project is that there are not a lot of materials that can make the cup warm, . The quality of the cup (prototype) is nice, I think it reduces thermal energy transfer. The new science skills that I learned throughout this project is how to collaborate with my peers to make projects out of good quality using science skills.  We’ve all worker hard from preventing heat loss. I have really enjoyed this experience!

Happy Thoughts!

Life is joyful, but also, there might be some things that doesn’t look  good. Always, have a growth-mind-set. So, I look forward to the next three years of Middle School!
