At school our intern, Ryan, is reading us a book called “The Thief of Always”. In the “Thief of always” all the main characters have fatal flaws in the book. One example is peer pressure. So, our intern asked us to right this post about what we think are flaws are. I think that one of my fatal flaws are procrastination. I always want to do something later. Usually I practice piano and I never put my pieces back on the shelf. So, later my mom yells at me and lectures me to always put my pieces back and then the next day I leave it on the piano again and then I get grounded. I think that being more responsible and being organized will help me.
(If you see my other post you will see the other troubles I found while trying to find a topic) I was at school and I thought about what my main research question would be. I was browsing there website and I thought that maybe I could make my main research question that if we need the United Nations today. At our school you need to make interview questions and sub questions. You need to interview someone with 20 questions. Also, you have to schedule a site visit where you need to visit somewhere that relates to your topic. The point of the capstone is to learn something new and to research your mind out so you can reach your main question (your goal).
For our capstone you need to make 5 sub questions minimum. These sub questions are smaller questions that lead to answering your main questions. For example why doesn’t the UN get involved in war? As I said answering sub questions is easier to answer your main question?
For our class you need to make 20 interview questions and obviously interview someone. It might take a lot of time to find an interview if you don’t know anyone. Also, you need to find a site visit where you need to go somewhere that relates to your topic. So, if your topic is disney then you can go to a museum about disney. I’m doing the UN so you I can go to the headquarters.
At school I am in a book club group and I am reading the book “The Son of Neptune” by Rick Riordan. This is some of the Social issues that I have found so far in my book.
3/23/16 So far me and Matthew have been working on this project for about 5 days. In those 5 days we work for around and hour and a half about every time. March 16th was our first day meeting. On that day we gathered all of our materials up and started basing out the project. We are working in Matthews basement. The goal for our rube goldberg project is to get the golf ball into the hole.
The materials we have used so far in the process are a mini toy golf put, tape, cardboard tubes/cardboard, dominoes, jenga blocks/little jenga blocks, a fan car, board games, marbles, toy ramp, nock hockey board, a deck of cards(We might not use them), toy sticks, and a golf ball.
4/3/16 Today we finished our whole rube goldberg. We have worked on it for around 20 hours total. Also we got it on our 24th try. We changed our Rube Goldberg many times. Probably around 6 times.
Through out our whole Rube Goldberg their is mechanical energy, potential energy, electric energy, and kinetic energy. Continue reading
Hello and this is a school entry (Its my homework) and I am going to write about my favorite day of the week. You can probably guess my favorite day of the week because it’s in the title. I hope I can learn about your favorite day of the week.
Friday is my favorite day of the week because it sets you up for the weekend. Technically for me it’s like a weekend except for the part that we school that day.
On Fridays everyones face lights up because it’s the last day of school until Monday. Mondays are kind of Gloomy people are tired and don’t want to be at the school.
Thank you for reading. Leave a reply down below to say what your favorite part of the week is!
20% time is 20% of your time creating things. Building legos would be using 20% of your time. You could also build something that will help everyone in the world. Our class is using 20% of our time building an arcade. Just like games you see in a real arcades, we have the same games except we are building games out of things you would find at your house like cardboard and duck tape. We were inspired by a kid named Caine. He created an arcade made out of cardboard and tape like what we are doing right now.
This is my essay about why chocolate milk should be served in schools. This is another essay that I am really proud of. I hope you enjoy it.
Building our rocket for the first time was awesome. It took about two weeks to build them. We made the wings out of styrofoam covered in duct tape. We used two Vintage© bottles connected together for the body part of our rocket. Our first launch was a huge fail. It only reached a 15 degree angle from 50 meters away. What were trying to do next for our 2nd launch is to make an uncrooked bottle and no duck tape on our wings and smoothing it out with sand paper to make it more aerodynamic and light. Another thing our group was going to do was to roll paper to the shape of a nose cone. Our first nose cone failed because it was crooked also. Our first launch was a fail, but our second launch is going to be a success.
