Day One Simulation Reflection-Ancient Mesopotamia

During the activity, my job was to write the laws. As a group, 2 people were writing the laws, 2 people were trading and deciding resources, and 1 person was designing the temple. Our biggest accomplishment as a civilisation was finishing our invention first. Our weakest point of our civilisation was that we didn’t have a lot of laws. If I could do this activity again, I would change the arranging of what each person worked on.

On one day, I played traditional Chinese games and taught others traditional Chinese games as well. Games that I played included Mahjong, Traditional Chinese Chess, Five in a Row/Gomoku, and Weiqi.

What did you do well : I think I did well at playing each type of game and teaching others about the rules of the games.

What did you learn : I learned about some Mahjong cultures and other ways to play Mahjong.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them : There were 2 students that were really annoying but I didn’t get really mad at them.

Why is one day important : Students could follow their hobbies or learn about something that they found interesting.



My Automata

My  Automata:

My biggest success was how the earth looked.

My biggest obstacle was waiting for other people to finish using the glue gun.  That took a long time.

One thing I would like to change is how the sun looked and was made of.2

Prototype Reflection

The objective was to make a water filter with supplies you would find on an deserted island. Me and my group made a water filter out of a water bottle, a piece of cloth, some fine sand, rocks, and steel wool (which replaced charcoal but did not have the same purposes. This is a picture of the water filter we made.The bottom layer was fine sand, the middle steel wool, and the top is small rocks. There was a piece of cloth wrapped with rubber bands in the bottom.
