"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious" - Albert Einstein

Humanities Reflection Paragraph

Two things I did well is my evidence is in the right format and I support my claim with strong evidence and reasoning. Two things I want to improve is my grammar and I need to write the introduction more clearly.

Smell Detector Reflective

This is my smell detector prototype. First of all, the air goes in from the blue circle (first picture), and inside machine analyzes the smell, and the results are displayed on the screen (the rectangle above the blue circle). Below the blue circle is a red rectangle. This is a speaker. It will reads the results so that you don’t have to look at the screen every time. You can see that in the first and second pictures, the top of the small detector is different. The first one can be hung on the neck like a necklace, and the second one can be hung on the collar or other places, like a pen. Both kinds of tops can be removed and replaced at any time.  

Lightbox Reflection

In our first design unit, we were create a lightbox. I choose New York to be my place of the lightbox. I learned a lot of different technique.

Overall, I think my light box is success because all the steps went smoothly, from using Adobe Illustrator made layers to get cut out. It’s all going well. The layers perfectly fix in the box. I learned how to use the Adobe Illustrator to make layers, its hard to make layers. You need make sure that the length of the layers can fix the box perfectly and its hard to find a picture of what you want. Fortunately, I got what I want. After I finish my layers and got cut out, I was very happy that the layers was perfect. When I put the LED in, I found that if I put the LED in the back, it would be dark in the front. I came up with a idea, I put some LED that was behind the third layer to the front of it (behind the second layer), so that it looks more pretty, also makes the front less dark.

My biggest obstacle was the painting, since my painting skills are not as good. I originally wanted to paint on the windows and lights of the buildings, but I couldn’t paint the windows the way I wanted them to, so I ended up painting just a gray color. Even though the I didn’t achieve what I originally wanted to, but the effect still turned out great. Overall, my light box was a success, and I look forward to our next unit.

How does ADHD and relationships impact Percy’s choices & how could he improve his behavior?

How does ADHD and relationships impact Percy’s choices & how could he improve his behavior?

Sometime something can impact our choices, everyone has this problem. Percy Jackson was example of this, Percy Jackson was a character of book Percy Jackson and the lightning thief. In chapter 1-3, positive relationships impact Percy’s choice because he can’t calm down without friends and he feels lonely when he was sick, this could improve by try to be kind to everyone and make more friends. Also, ADHD impact Percy’s choice because he like Mr. Brunner and he blurts out answers, this could improve by stimulating environments.

Positive relationships impact his choice because he can’t calm down without friends and he feels lonely when he was sick. Percy cannot calm down without his friend because, “Gover tried to calm me down.” (pg.33) this quote show that when Percy was angry, Gover tried to calm Percy down. If Gover was not there, Percy will still angry and he cannot control himself. Gover was Percy’s friend, friend plays such a role because in article Why Personal Relationships are Important it said, “the support offered by a caring friend can provide a buffer against the effects of stress.” Also, Positive relationships impact Percy’s choice because he feels lonely when he was sick. “I was home sick. I wanted to be with my mom in our little apartment on the Upper East Side” (pg.17) when Percy was sick and Percy was alone, he feels lonely and want to be with his mom. Why Percy want to be with his mom? Because “……found that loneliness is a significant predictor of poor health.” (Why Personal Relationships are Important) this sentence from article can demonstrate that people of poor health usually were loneliness, so people of poor health want someone accompany them. So, Percy want be with his mom when he got homesick. “How to improve Percy’s behavior?” I will say: “try to be kind to everyone and make more friends.” if Percy try to be kind to everyone, he will not feel lonely and has less stress, he will be healthy. Make more friends feel more love, did not alone anymore. So, if Percy make more friends, he will feel love and maybe the whole person will have a big change.

ADHD impact Percy’s choice because he like Mr. Brunner and he blurts out answers. Percy like Mr. Brunner because, “……but he told stories and jokes and let us play games in class.” (pg.2), this show that Mr. Brunner let them do some activities in class, “Why Mr. Brunner let them do some activities in class and then Percy like him?” you maybe have that question in mind, and the answer to this question is “people with ADHD like to be outdoors and move their bodies.” (Why Personal Relationships Are Important), people with ADHD like to move their bodies, so Percy like to move his bodies. Then Mr. Brunner let them move their bodies in class. So that why Percy like Mr. Brunner. Also, ADHD impact Percy’s choice through when he was angry to Nancy, he said “will you shut up !?!?!?!” (pg.5) this demonstrate that Percy didn’t think before he talks. People with ADHD usually blurts out answer. in the article Why Personal Relationships are Important it said, “these symptoms include……and blurting out answers in class.” Percy could improve his behavior by stimulating environments because “People with ADHD also do their best in stimulating environments.” (Why Personal Relationships are Important) this demonstrate that Percy will do his best when he is in a stimulating environment. If Percy was in a stimulating environment, he could be thinking and didn’t blurts out answers in class, also if teacher make a stimulating environment in class, Percy will like that subject or teacher, not just only like Mr. Brunner.

Percy can’t calm down without friends and he feels lonely when he was sick because his relationships, he like Mr. Brunner and blurts out answers because he had ADHD. If Percy in a he tries to be kind to everyone and make more friends and stimulating environment could improve his behavior.

Habitat Project

My habitat: freshwater

Thinglink:

1. What is your biggest take away from 6th grade science?

I’ve learned a lot about the environment, some of the problems facing the world and some solutions, which are also helpful to our own lives

2. What would you like to work on for next year in science?

I want to continue to work on projects to solve problems facing the world and show them to others

Final Products

I changed my book tracker to make it looks better

Our Stories Make History Project

reflection:
In the Our Stories Make History unit, we did several projects first, and then put them in the last project to form the “Our Stories Make History” project. I have learned a lot about what happened in the world through this project.

My project could be useful in the future for scientist to learn about COVID-19 and people can know about what we do during the COIVD-19 and know about e-Learning.

I’m proud of my  picture collage and 6-word memoir, because that show what  I feel and what I do during the time. Things I found challenging in this unit is writing journal entries, because I am not good at writing, but I have practice in this unit.

Make or Perform Project

Based on this experience, I used the iPad to draw this picture. In the picture, I am the sea, I can’t go ashore to see the beautiful scenery outside, I can only stay in a specific position, just like I can’t stay at home all the time.
