The Simulation of Ancient Mesopotamia is a simulation that makes us relive the days of Ancient Mesopotamia. We had to make laws, architecture, a written language, trade, and a top-secret invention. During the activity, I personally made the written language and I did the trading. As a group, we divided the workload up by looking at who had better skills to do which task. Our biggest accomplishment as a civilization was making laws because we finished it really quickly because Louis watches a lot of movies so he thought of a lot of crimes. Our weakest point as a civilization was our natural resources because we did not start with a lot of resources. If I could do this activity again, I would change nothing because I think we did really great because we finished second and the winning group finished the trebuchet (The Top Secret Invention) when we were halfway done with our trebuchet.
I chose this activity because I was hungry when I was choosing the activities for One Day.
I decided to eat the Sichuan Menu B because it looked like it was worth the most and it sounded really yummy.
Sichuan is a southwestern Chinese province that contains a stretch of Asia’s longest river, the Yangtze. The region is the home of giant pandas, which visitors can observe at Bifengxia Panda Base and other reserves. Chengdu, the provincial capital, is a center for traditional Sichuanese opera, which include fire-breathing and sleight-of-hand mask changes.
Chinese tea is a beverage made from the leaves of tea plants and boiled water. Tea leaves are processed using traditional Chinese methods. Chinese tea is consumed throughout the day, including during meals, as a substitute for plain water, for health, or for simple pleasure.
I shredded the chicken well because I shredded it into small pieces.
I learned how to use a kitchen knife.
I had to cut the last part of the cucumber as a challenge and I overcame it by turning it over and cutting it.
One day is important because it lets students learn about things they want for a whole day. It is educational and it is fun!
This is our video about Ancient China that we made in Humanities.
I think living next to the river is a good thing. One reason is that if you built irrigations the food and slit deposits of the river could be harnessed to dramatic effect. Another reason is that transportation to other places is easy because you can use boats to paddle on the river. The final reason is that if you live by the river then you can build machines that use the river to do things for you. For example, the Romans used water mills to help them grind their cereal and press their olives. There are many reasons that living by a river is a good thing but there are also many bad things about living next to the river but overall living next to the river is a good thing.
This is my Early Humans and Us Technology Thinglink that we made in Humanities.
This is the 2nd prototype of the cup insulator we made.
This is the “Penguin” Dwelling we made.
This is our poster of the processes throughout the unit.
If I could do things differently I wouldn’t change anything because I am very proud of my work.
The hardest thing was to design the insulator because we had trouble coming up with ideas.
I think the quality of the cup insulator is very good and I would buy it in a store.
Skills that I learned or developed were problem-solving because when I had a problem with my signs twisting around I added wires to keep it from moving.
The impact of this product will be changing the way people protest forever in the future.
One concern that was shared with me was making the people all protest about the same thing.
This is my Poem from Humanities we made it using GarageBand, StoryBird, and iMovie.

This is a project me and Andy made in the Design Lab. We had to pretend we were on a deserted island and we could only use the possible materials on a deserted island. We made a water filter together using materials from a deserted island.
