Rube Goldberg 6

The deadline came to use so fast. We were struggling to finish on time. We were so nervous that we were not going to finst in time with only one day left to work.

 

We use every second that we had. We felt ready to start videoing. Attempt 1-7 were a dig fail but attempt 8 got very far it got all the way to the last step but the truck was not strong enough. In the end we got it done on attempt 28. We were so proud of ourselves that we got it done in time.

 

In the end, I think that rube goldberg was a fun project. Yes, at times we were so frustrated that we wanted to pull our hair out. I think that this is a good learning experience. It taught me to manage my time and to work better with people in my class. I just wanted to thank Gracie so much for being flexible with the whole thing. I couldn’t have done this without her.

  

Rube Goldberg #5

When we got back to work we really had to focus because if we did not we would not get the video done in time.

We realized that our original first step did not work so that meant we had to change the hole first step. It was very annoying and hard. But we got through it. We were so happy when we got it to work.

I will keep updating you.

Rube Goldberg #4

I Know I have not been that is posting a lot about Rube Goldberg this is because nothing is really going on and we had winter break. Both me and my partner were away. Then we were reminded of the deadline. It’s only a week away. My partner was going away next weekend. This meant we only had Monday Tuesday Wednesday to work. We were a little nervous.

We had a lot to do with all the videos, testing, We Videos and iMovies to get done. We were very nervous but we felt confident that we could get it done.

3rd Rube Goldberg blog post

My partner Gracie and I were so excited to start building our Rube Goldberg project.  To start, we built what we had planned to do on our sketch. We had to adjust a little because the tools didn’t exactly work the way we thought they would.  We were able to work together to try different things to find something that worked. We also got frustrated at times, especially with the dominoes that kept knocking each other down.  We had to reset them each time. We have not finished building yet we are still going through different options.

 

We will keep updating you through the process.

Blog post #2

 

Me and my partner Gracie were so excited to sketching. We started! All was going well until step #4. We were stuck. We kept on stressing out. We thought we wouldn’t make the deadline.

 

Finally! We got ideas. One night, Gracie and her mom were looking on the computer for ideas. It was a miricale. They found a video with a bunch of inspiration that lead to other videos. From there, it was easy. We got the sketch finished.

I will keep on updating you on the process.

1st Rube Goldberg Blog Post

My class has start the rube goldberg unit!I am excited for the process. I always have been looking forward to doing this project.

To start, we had to make a few decisions. One of them was if you were going to work with a partner, or alone. If you were working with a partner, how many? And have to live 5-10 minutes away.

I decided to work with one partner. Her name is Gracie. I chose Gracie because she is very nice, flexible, and kind-hearted. She lives 3 minutes away from where I live.    

The next thing we had to decide is what our goal is going to be. A goal is a simple task that the Rube Goldberg machine would have to complete. Our goal is to get a car down a ramp.

Soon, we will start sketching. I’ll update you what comes next!

4th Grade Reflection

In 4th Grade my class did a lot of fun activities! We did a lot of work. We also did a lot fun projects for example curiosity project, toy theater project, colonial america project, biography project and ecosystem project.

My class did some read alouds for example “Blood on the River” by Elisa Carbone, “Book Scavenger” by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman and “Tiger Rising” by Kate Dicamillo. My favorite read aloud was Tiger Rising because it was interesting that was about a tiger and a boy.

In my school every year a person with disabilities comes to my school. This year a man named Dennis Oehler came to talk about his disabilities. He was in a car accident and he was hit by a car and had to get part of his leg removed. He showed how he put on his artificial leg and showed us how he ran with it.

My favorite subject was math because we learned a lot of new cool methods and we learned how to do more difficult things.

My favorite thing doing this year was my curiosity project because we got to choose our own topic. My topic that I choose was cupcakes. I choose it because I love baking.

 

Tundra by Logan

Towards the end of the year my teacher asked my class and I to do a ecosystem project I choose the tundra. But before we got to do anything  we had to research. When we were had enough research we went to the computer lad in our school. we had to draw out a story board and sketch the pictures than we wanted and figured out the words that we wanted basted on our research. When we where done with our story board we had to do a we video that is a app were you can make videos. We had to look for pictures and I did some recordings. Then we were finished

Biography – Helen Keller

Helen Keller

 

Early Life

Helen Keller was born on June 27, 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. When Helen was a baby she was not deaf or blind. She was a very smart and happy baby . She learned how to walk and speak very early. Her first words were “tea tea tea” for tea and “wa wa” for water.  She became very ill with a very high fever. There was not a lot of medicine to help her get better. She became deaf and blind when she was two years old. Helen became blind before she became deaf.

 

It was hard for Helen because people did not understand what she was trying to say. She threw fits and had a bad temper. On March 3, 1887, when Helen was almost six, Annie Sullivan arrived at the Keller’s house to help Helen learn sign language. At first Helen really did not like Annie. Every time Annie went near her, Helen would not be nice. Eventually they moved into a cottage on the other side of the farm so that Helen could focus and learn more things. Helen loved to be outside so most of their sessions were outside.  Helen learned how to speak in sign language. Her family learned sign language too so she could speak to them.

 

Adult Life

Helen had always wanted to go to a college called Radcliffe. First she went to Cambridge and studied at Mr. Gilman’s school to prepare for going to college. She studied really hard because there were no books in braille at that time. Annie had to read all the books to her in class. In 1900 Helen Keller’s dream came true. She was going to Radcliffe!  Radcliffe was one of the best colleges at that time!

Obstacles

Helen Keller had two major obstacles in her life, she was deaf and blind. Her life was bark and silent. There were no schools to help Helen learn how to read and write. Because Helen became deaf at such a young age it was very hard for Helen to learn to speak.

 

Impact the world     

Helen Keller was deaf and blind but she showed that her obstacles did not hold her back form learning how to read and write. But there were no school for deaf and blind people. Helen Keller’s family had to hire a teacher for Helen so she can learn to read and write     

 

 

 

Tundra Ecosystem

There are three different types of tundras they are Arctic, Antarctic and Alpine. The tundra is a place that is very cold and in the winter it is always negative temperatures and in the summer it is always around 50º. A tundra is a barren place where nothing can grow, so there are no trees.

 

In the tundra there are lots of types of producers like moss, lichen, grass, plants, trees, and hair grass. A producer uses water, carbon dioxide, and sunlight to make its own food.

 

In the tundra there are a lots of types of consumers like ducks, geese, seals, sheep, penguins, petrels, albatrosses, mountain goats, squirrels, snow owls, grizzly bears, wolves and caribou. A consumer is an animal that must eat plants or another animal as food.

 

The tundra is a cold place that has a lot of interesting animals. It is in danger of becoming warm because of climate change you should try help to stop climate change.
