This was a bit hard but fun at the same time. The hard part was that we have to fetch pictures, research, and even make up a script of a made up person. Then the fun part is making the story. We worked on WeVideo (link down below) which was a good place to work because you can import pictures easily and record your voice over the work.
I really loved this unit because you get to write poems that are funny and fun. Than the Where I’m From unit was really fun because you get to explain what happened in your childhood.( I’m still a child but from your past.) That was the most fun. Than another part that was fun was that you need to write poems every night and they are really fun to write because you can write about anything. Here is a link for where I did the “Where I’m From poem.” http://freeology.com/worksheet-creator/poetry/i-am-poem/
Try it out for yourself, it is really fun :)!
Since we did both Lessons 2.0 and 3.0 It was hard to squeeze in the time for the lessons because usually one lesson is 30 minutes but this time we had to do them at the same time so each lesson was 15 minutes so I think me and my group did a very good job at teaching because at the end they were like okay can we do this or can we play this or lets make a game so I think we did very good teaching. And the students also listened very carefully so I think that’s great to so lessons 2.0 and 3.0 were the lessons we taught them a lot.
Our Rube Goldberg project took a lot of effort. First to come up with the idea on how to build it was pretty hard because we didn’t know if we had the right pieces. Then building and getting all the pieces was so super hard because that’s the main part of building a Rube Goldberg Machine. Then the video. The video was probably the hardest because sometimes the person who was videotaping stopped the recording and the Rube Goldberg was still going and it was so annoying. That was the long pain of Rube Goldberg.
For finishing up me and Ryan’s Rube Goldberg it took all very long time to actually finish the start and what I mean by that is that the start didn’t work but the whole thing did work so we kept on trying until it worked. It took 1 try at least and that’s all I’m proud about.
While Ryan and I were doing Rube Goldberg at his house we tried so many times, but the car did not knock the dominoes down at a point. It was so frustrating and at a point we had no materials left. We needed books to stack up and we used all the books so we had to figure out another way.
Ryan and I met at my house. He forgot to bring some supplies, which made it much harder. We used ping pong balls, a toy car and some dominos. It was getting very difficult at my house because I didn’t have a lot of materials to do the Rube Goldberg so we switched to Ryan’s house.
One reason why it was hard at my house is because when we placed the dominos they kept falling down. We also switched to his house is because he had better materials. At his house, it was also very difficult because once we knocked the dominos down they don’t push the car, but we knew exactly what to do because we had the sketch. I think it will go better the next time we meet.
For our Rube Goldberg sketch it was difficult to figure out and agree to an idea. Sometimes someone got an idea, but the other person wouldn’t agree to it. The main part of why the sketch was hard is because it was to write about your machine, but while we were doing the sketch we were still wondering how the machine would work with what materials. It was also hard to discuss plans over the weekdays so we to make the effort to make plans with each other.
After a long 10 to 15 minutes we came up with the machine and how it would work and we knew what was needed to do it. We came up with something easy, but it would be hard to make. And our idea was to make a planning sheet of what it would look like and we would share with each other. We went with most of Ryan’s ideas because he had more steps and they were more interesting.
For our Rube Goldberg, Ryan and I had to start with using the materials to make it. We used cardboard, 3d- printed items, a knife, mug, dominos, newspaper and a tape roll. We are going to do it at Ryan’s house. We are going to 3d print so we will use Tinkercad and have a lot of cardboard and ping pong balls.
