I once got my shoelace stuck in the excavator, so maybe my name should be "clumsy untied shoelace girl"

Habit Final Mini Project

  1. What is your biggest take away from 6th-grade science? Since 6th grade was the first year that we actually study science in school, it was pretty hard for me to understand things in the start of the year. My biggest take away was that I got to learn new things that I  have never learned in school.
  2. If you were to write your own comment on the report card, what would you say?  How confident do you feel in making models in science, analyzing data, and constructing scientific explanations? I think I still need to improve on making models in science. I am ok with analyzing data and constructing scientific explanations, but I just need to be more specific and add more details.
  3. What would you like to work on for next year in science? I would like to work on improving my skills on drawing models and explaining what I did in the model.

Final Reading Project- HOLES

What book did you read and how did you like it? (Remember titles of books are underlined)

The book I read for this project was  Holes by Louis Sachar.

Explain how your project shows your thinking

For this project, I focused on character change on the main character Stanley. This project can show my thinking because I need to write about how Stanley changed over time. To do that, I need to finish reading the book and focused on the details when talking about Stanley. 

How did this project level-up your thinking or stretch you as a reader?

This project stretched me as a reader because it also tests me on how I read the book and if I read the book closely. Also, I also need to use some reading skills like go back and re-read when I need to find more evidence.

COVID-19 Final Project

1. A one or two-sentence summary of the unit, “Our Stories Make History,” and the project you created.

The unit “Our Stories Make History,” is basically about our life and our stories during the COVID-!9 season. We recorded down the things that happened in our life. The project I created was just a tutorial on how to make jelly. Because jelly is really easy to make and really fun to make.

2. Explain how you organized your project and why.

I first videoed myself making the jelly, then I used iMovie to put all the videos together and added words to it.

3. How might this primary source be useful to a historian, or even future 6th graders, in the future?

I think historians or future 6th graders can learn what we work we did in 6th grade 2020, and what we did to not get bored.

4. What might they learn about/from your experience?

I think they can learn what 6th-grade students in 2020 liked to eat, and how to make it.

5. What do you think went well for you in this unit? (What are you most proud of?)

I was able to complete most of my work without asking questions and most things were done well.

6. What did you find challenging within this unit?
Some of the assignments were really confusing like I didn’t really understand what to do, but I understand most of the tasks

How did Eating Help the Homo Habilis-Diet

Back then, what people ate was mostly raw, they didn’t have a good fire to cook their food so they ate raw meat and uncooked vegetables. But now, we eat most things cooked, like full cooked meat and cooked vegetables. If I can redo this project and go back to when we just started it I would work. Before I didn’t work very fast because I thought there was still a lot of time left, but actually there wasn’t a lot of time. I struggled when there wasn’t a lot of time left at the end, I had to go home and work because I didn’t do a lot of work at school. I will change


Cardboard Aracade

  • My biggest success was to finish making this game on time before we let the fourth graders play it.
  • Skills that I developed was cutting straight lines on cardboard fast, and sticking cardboard together with only a bit of hot glue
  • One thing I’d like to change is to change the color, to make it more colorful so that it will be more eye-catching.
  • Overall, I think this product was successful because we finished it on time, and we can actually play it and the fourth graders actually think that its fun

Homo Neanderthalensis

In this assignment, we were supposed to choose a time period that early hominins lived, and I chose Homo Neaderthalensis.


Maps as Metaphors

Dreams and Memories

I am from a family,  

with laughter and happiness,

like a party,

with everyone laughing together. 


I am from dreams, dreams to meet my idol, 

dreams that I can have his autograph, 

dreams that I can take a picture with him, 

and keep it forever. 


I am from amusement parks, 

With roller coasters going side to side, 

With roller coasters in water, 

That ends with a big SPLASH! 


In summer, I am from water parks, 

 with water slides going round and round, 

and 90 degrees straight down. 


I am from memories, 

from when I was young , 

when I got my finger stuck in the door, 

and I screamed like a dying pig. 


I am from birthdays, 

blowing candles, 

with smoke in your face,

like a chimney in front. 

receiving gifts, 

and friends and family surrounding you,

at that very special moment. 



Dirty Water—Clean Water

before and after

my finished product


For this project, we were supposed to imagine we were stranded on an island with no water., there was only dirty water. So we needed to change dirty water into clean water. But all we can use are things that can be found on an island.

The materials I used were:

-plastic cup

-paper towel

-rubber band


I think engineering is important because you can use it anytime, you don’t know when you would need to use it. You can use it when you need to or even you can just build things when you are bored.


My challenge was to try my best to make the best product to make dirty water turn clean. Also, we only had 3 days to do this project. The first day was planning, the second day was to make the prototype and the last day was to make the real thing.


I chose that design because Mr.Gaby told me to think of the people who make coffee. He said that they would but something like paper above the cup and but the grains on top of the paper. Then coffe would come out and the grains would stay. I thought that was a very good idea so I tried it, and it worked.

In this assignment we were supposed to draw a picture of us using an app then we needed to write something about us.
