Cup stacking

This terms Theme is "move ya body" and today my home class did cup stacking challenge 1 person per group and I was one of them I got 21.32. What I learnt was that not only your body movement are important to you but it is also about our mine controlling. Some new words I learnt was Role Model if you wanna be a role model then don't say it but show it. Encourage. Encourage means when you see your team mate is stuck then help or push them to do something that they want to do.

Team five decided to do an EXPO to show to Pt England School. The reason why is because we needed to teach the younger students about Force and Motion. Teaching makes you a better learner.

Our group had more than two ideas, our first idea was to do a catapult, another idea we had in mind was to do an egg in the water experiment.

For our project we wanted to do the egg in the water experiment. The reason why we wanted to do this experiment was because it looked fun, and we wanted to test it out, and that it concludes Force & Motion.

Our group failed because we didn’t have the equipment. But we really wanted to do the EXPO with the other Yr 7 & 8 so hopefully we can do it next time.

When we have another EXPO our group should have the right equipment, and to be ready to present what we have learned to the Pt England Students.

At school what I enjoy is doing maths and literacy what I like more is on fridays when we go to swimming. I really like using the Imacs at school because I like doing my DLO. DLO stands for digital learning objects. Sometime I don’t enjoy doing work in class and sometime I lack of school time but not on sport times. I have some questions for you to answer.

Do you have any siblings? How long have you been living in Eugene for? Who are you named after? When were you born?

Best wishes,

This activity is about friction this from this presentation we have learnt that friction helps us at times and sometimes doesn't help us.

I have learnt that friction means Friction occurs two or more object rub together.

How friction helps us is our fingerprints create a friction when we pick up an object.
