In class, we started to read a Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park and we are talking about LEADERSHIP!!! Some qualities of effective leaderships are bravery, determination, persistence, and confidence. A leader needs these qualities because they are the head of the group and they make all the decisions. Salva demonstrates these qualities by wanting everyone to look for his family and wanting himself to look also and he is not giving up. This shows that he is determined because he is not going to give up. Salva’s philosophy might help me in my life by setting an example of his bravery and persistence and reminding me of the fact that my problems might not be so terrible after all. Perseverance is important because if he gave up right away when he failed, he would not be able to survive or find his family. You could better develop the ability to persevere by practicing to be a good leader and by gaining more confidence in yourself.
Today was our second day of immigration stop motion video taking. We had so much success in our try today. We got to make our stop motion say TRANSPORTATION and then everything would get crumpled. Then it would say IN IMMIGRATION and the the letters would go into a pile. Then Finally, It would resort the pile and say by ALEX MAX AND HARRY. I am really looking forward to doing it again. This is a very good stop motion video I pulled up from youtube… https://youtu.be/ByGq-EdQ2L0
Today, we did stopmotion. We had troubles like we had to change the angle of the camera and stabalize the table with a fat pack of post-its. In the end of 1 and a half hours we had a very good beginning.
At first when I came to my partners house, we did not know what to do and we thought we were going to fail big time. #1, we couldn’t come up with a goal. On the next playdate, we came up with a goal! We had no idea how we would start our RubeGoldberg and finish it. We thought of box with dominos would start us of and that was actually a great idea (as you can see in the video which is in blog post #5). We had a great time and it was fun.
In my opinion, the hardest thing we had in our project was setting the dominos up again and again. Also, the easiest thing to do was to watch everything get knocked down. The easiest thing to do is the one that is really fun.
