It’s time to write the script and film your project
The script process went a little fast but I felt good about the script from day one and as soon as Mrs. Cooper saw she thought the same as I did.
As soon as we finished our script it was time to create your slides and start practicing and that’s when the butterflies came. I chose ted talk because I feel like it would be better if people would see me.
I felt so pressured that I had to get this done then that and it as very hard for me to keep it together especially now that we don’t have a lot of alone time with our teacher felt like I was left alone and I thought I wouldn’t finish
But I pulled through and started to practice and practice till it was right and that’s when the stress and frustration came in because it would take me some many to get it right and I practiced so hard and I had to keep doing it again.
But at the end, I pulled it off and all the emotions that were in me before and then I finished just went away and it felt so good to be finished then I put it in the folder and it was ready to get put in.
It was very easy for me to find a person to interview because as you know I am a baker so I go to this person a lot for baking classes and she owns a very successful bakery in Harrison NY, Her name is Nora.
I emailed her through my mom’s Facebook account and she was up for it.
She helped me answer One of my sub-questions, That was How has technology helped baking and changed it throughout time. And since she owns a bakery she works with a lot of tools that use technology.
Here are the questions I asked her
What got you into baking
What kinda tools have changed from then and now
How the design that people use on cakes on cupcakes and all sweet treats changed throughout time
Have any of the techniques you used and use now changed
Have you noticed any technology used changed for baking
What are some ingredients that used now used that you thought you were never gonna use
What somethings you love to bake
Why did you choose baking as your job
Do you think cooking and baking are similar
What is one thing you don’t like about baking
I thought my questions were good but once I got into the interview I had some others I wanted to ask some other questions about my topic but I didn’t do it.
and also thought about how when I was about to say the question sometimes they didn’t seem so reasonable so I would try to think of something on the spot.
In the end, One thing that was so interesting that she said in the interview was that when she would cook with her grandma they wouldn’t use tools they would use there hands and she uses that in her bakery as well. Nora helped me so much and I have a great feeling that I will rock capstone!
My topic is balking and The reason I choose it because I always had a passion. I always find fun and amazing to express yourself and you can be creative. I’ve been baking for a long time, I can bake cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and much more. I really love baking
Well as you know I have to do this project virtually and for me, it has been very hard to understand if I can do this or if I did this right but now I think I kinda got used to it. One thing that was pretty stressful for me was the sub-questions because it was hard to think of questions that you had to research for not just a fact. For instance, when I had three out of five sub-questions I had no idea what I was going to do and I was really frustrated and not happy.
Well, now I know that everything’s gonna be okay and I’m excited to see how capstone goes because this is just a beginning.
In my class, Weare doing a project called Rube Goldberg. Rube Goldberg is when you use simple machines and another object that is supposed to get a ball into a cup or something like that. There are six simple machines, A Pulley, Lever, Wheel and Axle, Wedge, Incline plain and, Screw.
I and my group are almost done with our sketch but the hard thing is about working in a group is that if you don’t have one team member there it’s hard to get everything done. I and my group are a little behind but as soon as the building starts I think we can catch up.
I think that this project is gonna be fun but at the same time, it will be a frustrating cause of how many times it will take to get it right. This project is to help with teamwork and knowing that not everything will happen on the first try.
In my class, we read a book called Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. Me and most of my class really enjoyed this book because it told a story about how kids can be really strong but also about losing family and how to stay strong. This book is taking to people’s stories and putting in one but only one was a true story. The one with the true story is a boy named Salva he lived in southern Sudan, 1985, there was a war where he lives so he had to leave his family he faced a lot of challenges but he got through it. Then the other story about a girl named Nya lived in southern Sudan, 2009, she would have to walk a lot to just get a bucket of clean water. She also went through a lot, but trust me the ending is amazing.
My reflection on this book is that it gave me a lot of different emotions but the part that stuck to me the most is when the kid got on top of his back cause he couldn’t swim but the kid got shot, that kid saved his life. isn’t that something. Also when Salva had been left alone he found he found his uncle and then a few months later some hunters came to his tribe and strapped his uncle to a tree and shot him.
Some good things that happened were that Salva never gave up on himself he missed his family and his uncle but he knows they would want him to push through and that is exactly what he did he pushed and pushed and made it to a safe refuge camp in Canyon.
I think that the author is trying to teach us that people should accept what you have cause some people might not be as lucky as you. A symbol of the book is that you don’t get everything you want. I wouldn’t spoil the ending but this book is probably the best book I’ve ever read. I recommend. This book made me think of how I’m so lucky to go to school to see my parents every day to feel safe and not scared, this book taught me that maybe not everybody has the chance to do that.
Imagine walking into a cafeteria filled with chatter except this one table giving dirty looks well carrots are getting through in the air. This all happened at Heathcote School in mid-October. Only a few kids, 5th graders, were involved. According to Rachel Barr, this all happened because “ Some girl stole the other girl’s seat so the other girl decided to leave the table so then the boys started to follow her.” As a result, the teachers stopped it and it will now always stay in the past
Is there a fire in Heathcote school right in front circle? But the good news is that there wasn’t but also it wasn’t a drill this is how it all started. All of Heathcote was coming in waiting for the bell to ring and … boom the fire alarm went off every kid was scared because there has never been at that school a fire alarm before the bell rings. The music teacher brought outside all the kids. Then one of the kid said ” Its Friday the thirty.” Then everyone got more scared and then the police and a fire truck came and that’s when every one was horrified. But luckily it was a just a drill and someone must of pulled the fire hydrant. But the good thing is that everyone is okay.
We launched our rockets! Our first rocket went higher than the second one. My group was very disapointed and I was to. But at least it got off the launcher.
My group went first again. This time the parents were watching that also made me more mad because our parents couldn’t see our best work. At least the whole class there rocket off the launcher, that’s a big thing.
After the next day it was time to start graphing our rocket we basicly did the same thing as last time we added our hights together and then divied by 3 whitch got us to 20 then we worked with this special craffing paper and it turns out we got 67 meters. Not to bad.
We are building our second Rocket. The promblem was that we can only change one thing from our old rocket, but we are building the rocket from scratch. We decided to make our fin trigal shape instead of parrella.
After we planned out our Rocket it was time to build. Me and one of my team mebers were building the nose cone and one of my other team mebers were doing the fins.
After we had everything ready it was time to hot glue. First we hot glued the nose cone then the fins and we secured both with tape. As a little decoration we decorated it with black and orange to match hallween.
We did our launch!!!! It was so much fun. All our rocket went so high. Ours went very high, it went 38 metters. I got to be the launcher and the rocket placer. This is my rocket launch story.
We did our rocket launch on the field, the launcher was made out of a bicycle pump and a pvc pipe. When we got on to the field and we were getting set up for the first launch, which was my group. One of my group mebers was counting down 10 9 8 7 I was so nervous.
3 2 1 the rocket flies up so high at least it looks like it did. Everyone went wow, cause it was our first launch and also we went first but on everyones we all said wow on everyones.
It was the next day after launching it was time to graph which means that we were gonna find out how high our rocket went next we chose the most reasonable hight and then we graphed it and it turns our rocket went 38 meters and we got second place which ‘m pretty happy about.
