Home learning challenge #4

My science badge so far, Here is a few things That I have made and done so far to work towards getting my science badge.  

You had to write a poem abot a pet you  own.

Poem about my cat Petal
I have a pet feline, who I find quite divine
I fed her I hug her and what does she give me, A loud meow in the morning as her hungry plea.
Her energy levels are high, when she runs its like she can fly.
Petal is so sweet, to have her it is a treat.


Another one of the tasks was to write a short peice of text about a story you have heard involving farm animals.

Battery Chickens
There has been a lot of concern
about the health and safety of the chickens being farmed today. This is bad for the chickens heath as they have no room to move about And they are treated poorly.

Leadership-showing leadership in the holidays-Excellence post #9

A two more ways I have shown leadership these holidays. The first way I have showed leadership is by helping a boy at skiing by helping he get up again when he fell over. The second way that I have shown leadership is also at skiing was working hard towards my goal of not falling over at all. This is a hard goal to achieve because skiing involves a lot of balance and focus but I was able to to this goal only falling over once.

I have shown community by helping out in the community and being a good role model, I have also shown Goal focused by working hard towards my goal at skiing and then reaching my goal.

Apply simple linear proportions, including ordering fractions

 
I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions


Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.

Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed?
A:12 (first I figgered out how many cat there were (15) then I used this information to figure out how many humans there were to equal half the cats.)



Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that All gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob invested.
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?

A: des gets ¼ (because if he gets half of what bob has bob has ½ and I know that half of ½ is ¼.)

Arts drama

In ARTS this term we have been learning to: make a silent production on the theme of a chase.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.
  • During this unit of learning we:
  • Described the characteristics of silent performances.
  • Identified different techniques used in silent performances.
  • Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations.
  • Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance.
The most challenging part of this unit of learning was coming up with an idea because our group wanted to come up with a great one.
The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
  1. Practising.
  2. Learning about the characteristics.
The story that my group told silently was a race where the start flag got stolen so it turned into a chase and we had to include a fake kick, face slap, shaking fist, a pointing finger and some mime.
Overall I think my group worked well because we came up with a great idear and we enjoyed ourselves.
