Rocketry Reflection

I thought that going into this rocketry unit it would not be super fun. We first started with a challenge that Ms. Robert gave to us this challenge was hard but once we finished it gave me a big morale boost. Then we started making our inspiration board where we had to put our rocketry skills to the test, we studied Isaac Newtown and his three laws of motion. We made our rocket short and fat we chose that because then it would have more weight and if it was windy it wouldn’t blow over and move as much. The jobs for launch one were Theo – pump, Leo – video, Chloe – launcher, Katie – the countdown. We launched our first launch was 28.5 meters in the air. If I could change anything I would change the nose cone and that is what we ended up doing. Launch 2 jobs Theo – launcher, Leo – video, – Chloe – countdown, Katie – pump. Our second launch was 27.5. We went lower our change did not do a lot. Here is my video, I hope you enjoy.

Ignite Presentation Reflection

When it was my turn I had to stand up in front of all those parents I think that my face turned red and I know for a fact that I was sweating like crazy and if I forgot my lines for some reason that made me feel calmer I think it did because nobody else knew my script. I was just beginning to get extremely nervous and then my dad was smiling at me which made me much happier and calmed me down.

American Revoulution #1

I’m most interested about learning more about The Boston Massacre because  I don’t think it’s fair that armed soldiers shot back at people with rocks? If I had a Couple of rocks thrown at me And I had a gun I would not fire back that’s unfair!  I would at least arm them so it was a fair fight and 4 unarmed people were killed!

Colony Reflection

I learned from creating a poster in modern day for something that is old you want it to look like something that was made back then.

What I learned from building the colony is that teamwork is the key to everything and you always after have to keep agreeing or coming up with compromises to make a better colony. The poster connects to my colony because we are the middle colonies and we are the only colony that has big factories and great blacksmiths.

 

Teatown Reflection

  1. In teatown my favorite part was when we were sifting through the mud I liked this because I like the feel of the mud and looking and being kind of like of a detective.
  2. I learned that land and water are connected because that roots are like filters that make the water clean. Another thing i learned about land and water being connected is that hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere are all connected.
  3. I think teatown could make the visit better is if everyone could visit all the different lakes.
