One Day 2017 – Tie Dye Phenomenon

Over the course of One Day, Anthea, Angela, and I, tie dyed numerous apparel. Our goal was to customize plain white clothing and help the Booster Club advertise their shirts, as they are going to be selling tie dye kits later on in the school year. During this project, I learned the full process of preparing the fabrics, from soaking them in baking soda water, to rinsing them out. I also learned how to fold the shirts to create diverse designs. Overall, the entire process went smoothly and the majority of the shirts came out decent. However, finding white apparel was difficult, but we solved the problem by working with the Booster Club members and help from peers. If we were to do this again, we should purchase the materials earlier, as many of them weren’t assessable due to the Chinese New Year holiday. By doing so, we will be able to customize a variety of fabrics.

Top 100 for Mars Trip

A Woman with Space Dreams – Race Dreams make the Top 100 for Mars Trip

Laura Smith-Velazquez has been dreaming of going into space since she was 8 years old. Every year she tries to become an astronaut for NASA, but never made it. But Smith-Velazquez might just get her chance to visit space. A Dutch group called Mars One chose her as a semi-finalist for a new kind of space mission. Mars One wants to build a colony on Mars by 2025, and the astronauts that are sent to mars will live in a colony and never return to Earth. About 200,000 people signed up, and Smith-Velazquez made it for the last 100 people. People that wanted to sign up had to make a video and study about Mars. Mars One says that they need people who are good at solving problems and bouncing back from challenges. Smith-Velazquez knows that her chances of getting to Mars are not very good, because there’s still a lot of problems the Mars One team hasn’t figured out yet. Such as Mars doesn’t have oceans, the temperature range is 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit (10 to 21 degrees Celsius) in the sunshine and 100 degrees below zero at night. “How do you pack in enough supplies?” asked a scientist names Frank Summers. He also says that Mars One still needs to figure out how to make its own air, heat and oxygen on Mars, which is the one major problem they need to solve. Another problem is that the Mars One is having a hard time having people pay money to buy rockets and spaceships, because the materials are very expensive. Some people also think that the Mars One’s leader is not serious about this project, instead he’s busy making a TV show about it. “There’s a lot of risk, but there’s a lot of risk no matter what you do,” Smith-Velazquez said, “I’m willing to take that risk.”

The reason why I chose this article is because I heard that people could go to Mars if they chose to sign up.When I finished reading this article, I was wondering why the Mars One team wanted to send people to Mars, and why they thought it was going to work if they had so many questions and problems yet to solve? I also thought it was very interesting how so many people wanted to go to Mars. How did they make up their mind on leaving planet Earth forever? This was an interesting article.

Why are Rules Necessary in Real Life?

I think rules are necessary in real life.  Because if we don’t have rules, the world would be so crazy with both good and bad people.  The bad guys won’t be punished, and will keep on doing bad things that disrupts other citizens. If the world won’t have laws/rules the world will look like a mess, with trash all over the place, car crashes, etc. If the world have rules, life would be orderly, and now that there are rules, everyone should always follow them.

Minecraft Day 8

Yesterday was the 8th day of Minecraft.  When we got on, there was a sign that said, “137 will back you’ll never stop me” in front of the Town Hall. 137 stole the Town Hall chest, and then put a creeper spawner and a spider spawner.  Then he/she put all kinds of spawners on our village houses. He/she blew Corinne’s house up, and put all kinds of skeletons, creepers, spawners, and spiders in Ela and Ella’s house.  Then everyone was trying to help the village, rebuilding all types of things. Like our house, and the Town Hall.  At the end, we all saw that 137 change his name to another number and then changed it to Bandito.  Our class got damaged, same as 4SS’s and 4KM’s.

Last sessoin wast very intresting.

Fun Things About Playing Minecraft

I think we 4th Graders are very lucky to play minecraft in school.  Minecraft is helping me to learn about governance because minecraft is like another world but in a computer and we need a leader to lead the world/our village.  Minecraft also helps us to learn about leadership.
