Eagle Research project
In reading we have been studying how to research. My research process was to find out different types of information about eagles and jot the information I found into a packet. On our book we organized our titles into subtopics. Our subtopics were, Hunting Techniques. Eagles Body Parts, Eagles Flight, Raising a Family and Nests and Eggs. WE organized our research books from easiest to hardest. And I think that really helped my group and I. I think that the most valuable thing I learned about the research project was hearing stories about what not to do such as not to copy other people’s work.
I applied my work from my animal studies to country studies by, organizing things into categories, and I think that really helped me during the process. And I also had help from an amazing partner.
We divided our chapters into categories we divided them into something called “ Cultural Universals.” The cultural universals are called, Politics, Social Aspects, Economy, Beliefs and Cultural Arts.
My title of my book is, “ The Cultural Universals of Poland.”
My favorite part of the project was working with a partner.bAnd creating all of the google slides.
What I found challenging was that there was some things that I couldn’t find pieces of information so that was very tricky. But I really liked the project.
A maglev train is a train that uses magnets to levitate. There is a certain process we had to follow. It is called the “EDP” or Engineering Design Process. There are stages you have to go through. They are: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve. For the train my groups idea was to put one bar magnet in the center and three disc magnets on each side of the bar magnet. For the track we put three strip magnets next to each other.
In order to get something done we had to do something good. What I think we did great was we worked together. We had two people working together to make a train and two people making the track. Our train sadly failed. It did not levitate and so it did not it did not travel down the track. But I believe we can fix it. I think we put too many different magnets and there was a big height difference.
I had an amazing group. We all agreed and got along. We had a tiny disagreement. But we did great! Next time we will try not to argue and make sure we listen to each other.
