Yesterday we had Rania’s dad come in and talk about money and how it has changed from salt or beets to gold and silver to paper money. He also explained the five main traits of money. He said it had to be able to be divided, it had to be portable, it had to be a little scarce so that it would have value.
Yesterday I finished a project in music where we used garage band and made our own songs and tried to make them sound like jaws. This is my Reflection.
I liked the garage band project because we got to use the ipads. I didn’t Use my EKG because I think that mine is is very inaccurate. It was fun to use garage band because you get to be creative.
Here is a link to my song.
Today Jackie Bastardi from Curious on Hudson came in and talked about mechanical engineering. It was so interesting. In the beginning she talked about why she became a mechanical engineer. Later She talked about a lot of fun things she gets to do as an engineer. And at the end she showed my class how to make a kazoo out of straws, popsicle sticks, paper, and rubber bands. That’s all that you need. Also the kazoos worked really well and made a cool noise! I had a lot a lot of fun in this expert lecture and I look forward to the next one! 🙂
The kazoos looked a little like this.
