As a said in the first blog post we were only aloud to have 5 minutes. So me and mateo took that into account so then we thought, what would be better turning on a light switch by yourself our in a minute? So then we changed the idea to kicking a ball into a goal. The reason we changed the idea was because we thought that it would take longer and harder for a ball to roll into a goal, another reason is because we wanted our topic to be harder than a bunch of rube goldberg projects in our class. To sum it up It was hard to come up with the idea. It was hard because we did not our topic to be average we wanted it to be above average. And that is why we changed our simple task to be a ball rolling into a goal.
We are starting a project called a rube goldberg machine. I am working with a partner, Mateo. What a rube goldberg machine is suppose to do is to make a simple task easier with alot of steps. For example lets say you want to turn on a light switch, you would hit a button and that will hit dominos and that will hit a book and that will hit the light switch. That is what a rube goldberg machine is. What me and Mateo are doing is a soccer ball scoring into a soccer goal. Our teacher, Vivian Robert told us that we have to have at least 8 steps. The time limit for the Rube goldberg machine is 5:00 Minutes. The 8 steps that we are doing is a ball goes down a pipe ( This is table #1) and hits dominos then that will hit a soda can with water then the soda can hits books that hit car. The car goes down ramp and hits swinging bar that hits car number 2 which hits book that hits the enter button on a computer and calls my phone. Then my phone will vibrate down ramp ( Table #2) and hits books that hit a soccer ball that rolls down ramp ( On the floor) into the soccer goal.
A problem I have is that almost everyone calls out. So we don’t get through everything that our teacher wants us to do. So I think we should get punishments if we call.(like no recces for that day). But if we don’t call out we get more recces.For we keep on doing it to get more recces.
Another problem I have is that we don’t get much done in the day. So we don’t get as much nolege in class. So were not as smart as the other classes
Another Reason or way I think stood out is
Suds is getting lonely.
I can tell that suds is getting lonely because In a picture it shows every body around joey at the bee sting on his right arm. Suds was just behind them And nobody noticed him. Because he wasn’t a rat yet. He was still a angel thats 3rd grade. But then he became popular because he put a spider on his right arm. For his girlfriend judy billings then almost all the girls Came around to look at the black spider on his right arm. When the school was over he walked home with judy billings but her cat was missing. The cat was on the tree Suds claimed up the tree even do he was afraid of heights he still did it. He got the cat and troughs it down. But then he couldn’t get down so his parents found him in the tree got thee latter and got him down to the ground.
Four our first partnership I am reading fourth grade rats by Jeery spinelli. A jot is when you take a book and you
write abtout what you read about the book. The bigg thing I noticed is
Suds is getting more popular because he has become a rat.
Today me and My partner started to see that our plants are finally drying out so the next stage of the process is to take of the pods and take the seeds home and maybe plant the same plants at home from what you experience in school that’s what I learned seeya later!
This week is like the conclusion of plant observations so pods are forming up so only a couple of days till the pods will be released. Now I know that my hypotheses was correct my hypotheses was the pods will make other plants. What I wrote today was my favorite part of this week about my plants. See ya later soon!
Today me and my partner ND counted the poads. Poads are the home for the seeds. Seeds are the beginning stage of a plant. Poads job is to spread different plants around the world! That’s what me and my partner ND discovered this week.
