In this blog post, I’m going to reflect on my lightbox, I decided to do the Saint Basil’s Cathedral in Russia because of how beautiful and detailed it is. A lightbox is a wooden box that has a place secured inside of it.
My biggest success was finally successfully printing out my cathedral after 3 tries, in the first try, my cathedral was too big, in my second try, my cathedral burned up due to it being very detailed and finally during my third try I messed with some proportions and managed to cut the cathedral out. An important piece of advice that I would give to a future student is to measure twice and cut once and also to check over your work. Overall, I think my project is a success because of the fact that it didn’t fail and turned out better than I expected. This project was very fun and I would gladly do it again.
Everyone’s emotions can get out of control sometimes, it’s inevitable, but you can’t always have tantrums, you have to be able to control your emotions, but there are ways to control them and it really isn’t that hard!
Percy Jackson is very unaware of everything around him and is very impulsive. For example, on page.5 he said: “Will you shut up!?!?!?!?!” without thinking about the fact that it may hurt somebody’s feelings. Also, on page.18 is an example of Percy losing control: “One evening before my final, I got so frustrated that I threw the Cambridge Guide to Greek Mythology across my dorm room.” This also shows how he doesn’t consider safety when he starts becoming impulsive. If you don’t control your emotions, you can hurt yourself and other both mentally and physically.
There is a simple solution, you could use is to start doing activities you like or are calming, you could also try meeting a counselor or talking to your friends and finding problems to change, all this can help you control your emotions better. There are some simple steps that you can take: 1. Ask yourself what are you feeling? 2. Take a deep breath. 3. Give yourself some space. 4. Try meditation. 5. Stay on top of stress. 6. Talk it out with a friend. Though you still might lose your temper sometimes, that’s fine as long as you don’t lose it too often.
If you have anger management issues or you’re too impulsive, just do the things that is recommended, and you will be a master of your emotions. Once Percy Jackson got friends, he became much more controlled since he could talk with friends, this is another important detail to keep in your mind.
I think my biggest take away from 6th-grade science is the Mini Habitats project because I learned a lot about different animals and habitats.
I would like to work on chemical reactions next year in science.
Explain how you organized your project and why.
I organized it chronologically because this way shows the progression through COVID-19.
How might this primary source be useful to a historian, or even future 6th graders, in the future? What might they learn about/from your experience?
This may be useful because people might want to know how it felt living during COVID-19, they might want to learn how it was like to be isolated since they might have never experienced it. Historians will see how we did our best to make the bad become good, timelines will be of great use to them too.
What do you think went well for you in this unit? (What are you most proud of?)
I think that what went well was the Confirmation Bias unit, I think I am the proudest of my daily journaling because it was written really good.
What did you find challenging within this unit?
I think the most challenging part was the Journal Entries project because there needed to be a lot of brainstorming to complete all of the entries and I have never tried anything like it before. This was also challenging because it took a lot of perseverance not to give up halfway through.
In this project, we combined everything we learned during this period into a single thing, this lets us see what we have done.A new book (1)
This is my performance proposal for Humanities: I did an exercise walkthrough.
We made a project about how technology/ diet or community. I did technology. My research question is how hunting technology affected the development of humans.
This is our cup insulator to help keep drinks warmer/hotter for a longer time. Thes are photos.
In science class, we started making a cup insulator to keep coffee and other drinks warm. These photos are our paper prototype and our final design!
