I created a chair based on two aspects: Chair and wires. My idea is to make a chair that can have different buttons and levers. It could have multiple uses, like messaging or watching TV. Something I can improve on is add a bit more pieces that can represent the different buttons.
I think what I did well is that I created a car that the wheels on the front and the back are different, so it can go well on multiple surfaces. What I need to improve on is making this car more stable so that some pieces won’t fall off so often. Another improvement is to make the colors more even so it doesn’t look like a car put together with random pieces.
Nowadays, ADHD is well-known as a problem in children today. For Percy, ADHD is a critical feature to him. During class, he can’t sit still, and the words creepily float off his page when he feels agitated. Also, ADHD affect Percy’s emotions and also what he does. For example, when he was on a field trip with Grover and his class. When Nancy Bobofit, a girl he dislikes very much, bullies his best friend Grover Underwood, he gets restless and feels angry. Suddenly, the water seems to be responding to his anger, it rose out of the fountain and made a hand-like shape, and grabbed Nancy into the water, soaking her. This shows that when Percy sees his friends or people close to him being bullied, he feels angry like it is himself that is bullied. A great example of this is at page 5 in the book “The Lightning Thief”, when Nancy was having a discussion with her friends while the teacher is talking, Percy couldn’t stand that anymore and said ‘” Will you shut up!?!?!”’ and ‘it came louder than I meant’, and then ‘I tried to stay cool, the school counselor had told me a million times.’ According to the article “New Ways to Think About ADHD”, approximately 6.4 million under the age of 17 has ADHD and people who have this feels that something is wrong with them
Also, Percy could easily feel frustrated when something is not going in his way. A great example of that is at page 18, the night before the final exam, when Percy got frustrated because he couldn’t remember all those Greek names, he ‘got so frustrated that I threw the Cambridge Guide to Greek Mythology across my dorm room.’. Another example of this is at page 22, when he got kicked out of Yancy Academy, the school he was attending, his latin teacher, Mr. Brunner, told him “Oh, confound it all. What I’m trying to say…you’re not normal, Percy. That’s nothing to be—”
“Thanks,” I blurted. “Thanks a lot, sir, for reminding me.”
But I was already gone. The last example is at page 17, when Percy felt ‘cranky and irritable most of the time. My grades slipped from Ds to Fs. I got into more fights with Nancy Bobofit and her friends. I was sent out into the hallway in almost every class”’. These 3 examples shows that Percy could not stay calm all the time, and when he’s not staying calm, he could lose control over his body by hitting people, picking unintentional fights with other people, being disrespectful to teachers, such as page 17, when ‘“Finally, when our English teacher, M r. Nicoll, asked me for the millionth time why I was too lazy to study for spelling tests, I snapped. I called him an old sot.”’ All of these instances are examples of how much Percy is in need of help to manage his ADHD. According to “New Ways to Think About ADHD”, when students are given the treatments Ritalin and Adderall, they succeed and can manage their learning better.
In conclusion, Percy feels restless and angry, eager to pick fights when some people are being unnice to his family and friends. This could result in Percy getting in huge trouble, angering the teachers, and getting kicked out of this school. Another personality with Percy is that he feels frustrated when someone told him that it is okay that he is leaving and tries to cheer him up or if he sees something but just couldn’t do anything about it. These are how Percy Jackson, a demigod with ADHD, manages his feelings and emotions and how it affects him. He can change this by trying to get his emotions under control and taking deep breaths, or take some medical treatments.
Our stories make history is about in the crisis of the coronavirus and how life was like in that time. It is mostly based on children like me. We use our very own style to create stories of us in this time.
The project I created was in a ppt form. Each slide had 1-3 pictures of the work that I’ve created. I organized the project from date: the earliest to the latest so people could have an idea of the chronological order of events and how they changed over time. This might be helpful to them because they would learn the information about this time period that they wouldn’t usually know about. They could also know what is different in this time than any other times.
I think I did well on making all these projects, as they are very detailed in explanation and could tell the readers in a emotional way.
I find researching for facts challenging because there might be too much or too little news at this day, causing you to have too less/too many articles to choose from.
This is my updated Thinglink project, containing the paragraph and the citations. Enjoy!
This is my thinglink project about early humans technology and modern human technology
When you blog you create posts and posts are categorised according to your subject. Some categories have already been set up for you. If you need more categories you can add them as needed. It’s important that your posts have the following:
