How does Percy’s decisions impact and improve him?

From chapter one to three of Percy Jackson And the Olympiansreaders can see that Percy and his community are impacted by both his ADHD and his relationships. ADHD impacts his academic grades and behavior, while positive relationships impact his health and emotions. However, there are also ways to improve him, like going to stimulating environments and expressing his emotions. 

ADHD impacts Percy’s behavior throughout the book. On page 2 of the book, there is a quote mentioning that how his ADHD makes him fidget and causes him trouble. “At my (Percy)fourth grade school, when we took a behind the scenes tour of the marine shark pool, I sort of hit the wrong lever on the catwalk and our class took an unexpected swim.” This is due to his ADHD because in the article it states that “Getting easily distracted and avoiding activities that requires focus are also symptoms.” ADHD also can affect his grades. In Percy’s case, his grades “Slipped from Ds to Fs”. (Pg.17) He thought that it was caused of his stupidness, but it was actually caused by ADHD because in the article it claims that “The symptoms include often losing items, not paying attention to details or making careless mistakes in school and not listening most of the time.” From these quotes, we can see that Percy’s ADHD not only affects him on making nonacademic behaviors (getting in trouble), it also affects him on his academic scores because he gets easily distracted and doesn’t notice about details. Though ADHD can make things more difficult for him, Percy’s behavior could also be improved. “People with ADHD also do their best in stimulating environments. They like to be outdoors and move their bodies.” From this quote in the article, we can see that they are recommending Percy and others with ADHD to go outdoors and move more often. This could be true considering the fact Percy doesn’t like being in school, which sets place indoors.  

Positive relationships also affect his decisions. On page 33 of the book, Percy says that “When she looks at me, it’s like she’s seeing all the good things about me, none of the bad.” This not only makes him feel good, it also links to his health. In the article, it mentions that “In a study of over 100 people, researchers found that people who completed a stressful task experienced a faster recovery when they were reminded of people with whom they had strong relationships with. Along with that, on page 22-23 of the book, Percy says that ““My mother can make me feel good just by walking into the room. again, this is beneficial to his health because in the article, it indicates that “According to research by psychologist Sheldon Cohen, college students who reported having strong relationships were half as likely to catch a common cold when exposed to the virus, while an AARP study with older adults found that loneliness is a significant predictor of poor health. Percy’s decisions not only impact him but can also to improve him. “I froze. I’m not usually an eavesdropper, but I dare you to try not listening if you hear your best friend talking about you to an adult.” (pg19) After he heard that, Percy didn’t talk to Grover about it, instead he only replied to Grover “Just tired” (pg21). One solution next time the same thing happens, he could try what relationship expert Venus Nicolino recommends and respectfully express how you feel, and then drop it. Accept that you won’t change anyone’s mind. 

Overall, from various aspects, readers can tell that Percy can both get impacted and improved by his decisions, such as ADHD affecting his academic grades and behavior, and positive relationships affecting his health and emotions. Still, his actions could also be improved by staying in stimulating environments and expressing his emotions.  

G6 Science Habitat Mini Project

  1. What is your biggest take away from 6th grade science? My biggest takeaway is probably that I now have an interest in science because coming to 6th grade, science was my least favorite thing to learn
  2. What would you like to work on for next year in science? I’m not really sure because science isn’t really what I’m best at so i don’t really know a lot about it.

Our Stories Makes History Final Project

During the project, Our Stories Makes History, we made and wrote things that we were going through while being stuck at home during COVID 19 times. We not just learned about the world right now but also learned how to find a reliable source and how to tell if one source is reliable or not reliable to use. On the PowerPoint, I put in multiple small projects including the picture collage, the timeline, the 6-word memoirs, three journal entries and more. I put each small project in chronicle order(from the time I first got here in Macau to all the way now) so then it would make the ppt look easier to understand because sometimes I look at a PowerPoint and even though the text was perfectly clear, it was in a very messy order which made me confused so I don’t want the same thing to happen on my PowerPoint. This primary source may be useful to others because having one more journal entry about our own experiences during COVID 19 means learning a bit more about what happened during this period of time and the feelings and things they did during this time. The thing that I’m most proud of is the 6 Word Memoirs​ because even though it only has six words to it, I used a lot of my time and effort to make it the way I liked it and also until I was satisfied with my own work. One challenge for me was writing the daily journals because even though you can basically write nothing you want that was related with your day, I still found it very frustrating since somedays I just didn’t feel like writing but I was basically made to write something that I didn’t want to do. That kind of causes that days journal entries to be low quality since I didn’t really try my best.

Early Humans and Us Thinglink project-Community

Here is my Early humans and Us Thinglink project about how communities have influenced us throughout history.

Scissoreienes!

Our project’s goal is to make a cup insulator that will reduce the amount of heat loss for a cup with hot water in the insulator that we made. Our insulators name is scissoreienes and how it works is you pour hot water into your cup, then you just use scissoreienes to drink. you should buy scissoreienes because it had velcro so you can take it easily off. Our original design did not include the velcro but we added it later. we didn’t add it before because our group didn’t know that it had to come off of the cup for other people to use. I am proud scissoreienes because it worked really well.(the tempuature only dropped 10.3celsius). scissoreienes was kinda a success because after the experiment, the glue on the cap melted and it looked really disgusting.  The hardest thing about this project was choosing what materials to put on, because of that we ended up changing the final prototype a munch of times. Overall, i think our design was good but there was still alot of things that we could improve on. Also, i think that we could have more time because our group wanted to add more things but we had no more time left.

Cardboard Arcade Reflection

Grace and I made this game in design class, the game is called Plinko and how it works is that you drop 5 marbles down the tubes and it will land in the point boxes and you will get the point written on the box. Also, if your ball stops at one of the platforms, you get the point written below. if the ball gets stuck, you don’t get any points.

My biggest challenge was to make the obstacle very stable but not adding very much hot glue in them because Mr. Layman told us not to waste hot glue so that was a problem because not adding very much.

My biggest success was making the stop platforms because I think that made our game more fun. Also, adding the blue part made our game look much more better and not use paint whick could possibaly ruin our game.

Skills that I learned is that you can not use paint and still make it look good. also, you can not use so much hot glue and still make the arcade stable and not fall.

If I did this again, one thing I would do differently is to not put that much tape because the tape kinda made our game heavier and when adding the thing to hold the game, it was harder
