My teacher had told me and my class is going to be doing an immigration unit. We had to interview an immigrant that we knew. I went home thinking who am I going to interview, I thought about all of my relatives. None of them that immigrated are still alive. I started thinking about other people I might know, I thought of it! The person I thought of was Denisse. When I asked her if it would be okay to interview her she said yes. She immigrated her from Uruguay. The next step after we found who you were going to interview was to prepare the questions we are doing to ask. That was pretty easy for me. it was easy because I am very interested in the topic.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
