Word Art Poem

Greylock Poem

My poem is about camp. I chose the hand because it looked like a kids hand and I decided to make the writing red because my camp color is red. I thought the font looked like a kid who’s writing a letter. This is why I chose the colors and shapes.

Here is the same poem in the hand



The sun in my face

The wind in my hair

The splash of the river

When kids jump in

Playing sports all day

When Evening activities come

We play capture the flag

Until the sun vanishes over the horizon

The Idea

When Ian and I got to Jonny’s house Jonny told us about his Idea. We were going to hit a water bottle into a cooler. Ian and I agreed. We started building, but we had one problem. How are we going to get an object to the top of the cooler. That’s where I came in. I said we should put dominoes on a box onto a higher box etc. Then when we reached the top the domino would hit the water bottle into the cooler.

Tweaking Our Rube Goldberg

The last time our Rube Goldberg group met we wanted to make sure our course worked. We did it over and over until we were satisfied. We made adjustments to the car and the dominoes after the marble track. Now we know that our Rube Goldberg works. We also added a few ideas. For example, we put a domino on it’s side so the marble will bounce off it and hit dominoes. Also, we changed the car so that it will hit the marble every time. This idea took a lot of tape, but it worked.
