After my rocketry launch I felt like a huge weight was taken off my shoulders. It was finally over! I was both happy and sad. I was happy because I didn’t have to practice for it anymore. I was also sad because doing our rocketry presentation was fun. Overall, I am Happy on how my group and I did on the presentation. I hope we’ll do something similar again!
It was SOOOOO interesting! We met with a person called Rachel Power who worked in NASA. We watched all these cool videos and learned what happened and what you have to do before a launch, and we were probably the only fifth grade in the whole DISTRICT who got a video conference with a NASA agent!
First, we made sides (who was arguing for the cause, and who wasn’t). Jackson and Meena were for the cause, while Vrinda and I weren’t. Next, we made a google doc and shared it with each other. Actually, Jackson did, since we only needed one page for our group. We posted our ideas on that page. After that, each group made a google slide and shared it with the other group. On these slides we posted our reasons and examples, then wrote the reasons and examples on index cards. On the day of the debate, we brought our index cards and debated. It was fun!
On Monday 3/21/2016, My original group Michael M., Ty, Michael H., and Carson. After school, we all went to Ty’s house. We found a bunch of stuff for our project, including some rigged dominoes from a brand called Mr. Domino. It also came with a marble, a bunch of marbles, some un-rigged dominoes, and a descender for the marbles. In the middle of the project everybody except for me and Carson went to have a break, but later Carson took a break too. In my opinion, I was the only person who tried to get stuff done, but overall it was fun!
