This term it was track and field season. I learned a lot of things like how to run. It may seem dumb but you actually need to learn how to run. I enjoyed the track and field because I got a chance to go to the district track meet at bear creek and I got to miss a day of school even thought was supposed to go on a class field field trip on that day. I could have improved by going to more practices because that would have showed commitment and I would have learned more.
This term we worked on child labor. In child labor we learned about the poverty cycle, Iqbal, human trafficking, and many more. We also did a project to display our learning, I learned about how the poverty cycle works and how it is nearly impossible to escape from it. I kind of enjoyed this unit because it taught us what was really going on in the world and that we should appreciate what we have. Next time to improve my work I would do a digital project rather than a poster because Its clearer.
I didn't really enjoy the field trip because I was so close to beating Mr Hong but out of no where he appeared. )= I learned that if you try hard enough you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. I also learned that there is a worse pain than breaking your bones and its doing the Grouse grind. To improve my time for next I will start getting ready by excercising a couple of months before the Grouse grind. I will also hydrate my self while going up the mountain. I will also hydrate myself while going up the mountain. I was lucky enough to beat my time by 4 minutes. My current record is 49 minutes. I think I was able to beat my time because I took short breaks so my heart rate did not slow down. It was important for me to beat my time because I felt great that day and I set my mind on beating my time.
Doing the book clubs was not really fun. I did not like it because we had to read big part of the book in little time. Plus others got books that are smaller so it was not fair. I did learn a couple of things like staying organized and how to manage my time and also how to engage my group in the group discussions. I think I could improve next time by starting to read the book immediately when we get the book. The area that I feel I needed help was with finding enough time to finish each section.
For this term we did integers in math. We learned about adding and subtracting integers using 2 methods. We used the counters method and a number line for both adding and subtracting integers. I liked the way we got to play math games like pac man and we also learned a math integers song. An example of what we learned if like -3+ (
For the last two weeks we have been learning about angles. We have learned a lot of things. We learned how to properly measure angles. Which is to align one ray on the zero and then you count the numbers until you get to the other ray. We learned that a vertex is the point in which the rays meet. We also learned the different types of angles which are the acute angle which is and angle that is smaller then 90 degrees, and obtuse angle is an angle that is greater than 90 degrees, a right angle is a 90 degree angle, a reflex angle is an angle that is greater the 180 degrees but is smaller than 360 degrees, a straight angle is an angle that is 180 degrees so its basically a straight line,
This term I found that the most challenging subject for me was Language arts. What I found hard about this subject was that we have to write a speeches and present them in class to get a good grade. There is one thing I liked about language arts and that is the novel study on the book called Iqbal. My favorite activity was posting our questions and also posting words that we found to be exquisite. I think I could improve by participating more in class discussions. I would like to read more books instead of writing
Many people eat meat, scramble eggs, and drink milk with out even knowing how it goes " from farm to fridge." For example cows have milk to feed their calves but instead we take the milk from them and kill their young ones. Can you put your self in the cows spot, can you imagine having a baby and seeing people take your child and kill them for no reason. So we should try to stop this cruelty to these poor because we can only imagine how the animals feel when they are treated like this.
Human rights are the rights you are given because you are simply human. They include freedom, right to live, and many more and they apply to everyone everywhere. The rights are written in a document called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Some people choose not to obey these rights and that's why their are so many people still in slavery. Not everyone respects the human rights so we have to speak out and let world know that we are all equal and we should all be treated the same no matter what.
"It only takes one to speak out and change everything."
