Kiwi Can Reflection

Image result for KIwi Can

For Kiwi Can this term the topic is Problem Solving. Today we firstly were asked to define problem solving. I think problem solving means to resolve an issue which includes two or more parties. We then talked about problems that we face and what can we do to solve it. We all learnt that using the same strategy over again is not always the greatest idea because the problem is still having an effect on you. After that we moved onto the energizer. for this energizer we were separated to two groups. The activity was quite fun and I think we all did great job. Today we ended in a general knowledge quiz. Jeremiah definitely showcased his knowledge during the activity as he went past the most people. 

HIIT training

Today for HIIT we have been pushing ourselves by doing push ups and star jumps. Every set consisted of twenty seconds of activities and 10 seconds of rests. This is called tabata. After we finished all of the exercises our arms began to ache because of the massive effort put in by everyone. Both of the activities we did today proved to be harder than what they seemed to be. Today not everyone made it into the red but I think everyone did a great job.

Pecha Flickr

Link to Screencastify

This week we have been learning how to tell a story by using photos that can summarize the story without reading. This certain way of telling a story is called Pecha Flickr. To make our task easier we chose our own partners. So to help me complete this task I worked collaboratively with my partner Junior. We chose our partners so they can help us improve our writing skills by proof reading and communicating with each other. Next we chose five photos from google images that will tell our readers what we have been learning about. At the end of this activity I have learnt the structure and order of a narrative. I have also gained the skill to link ideas throughout the paragraphs so it has a smooth flow.

M&M's Research

This week for maths we were learning about M&M's. The hardest thing this task was finding true answer because some of the answers didn't have a same information so that means one of them is false. The most easiest thing was working as team because we didn't argue with each other for anything and every one contribute. For this learning I learnt that each packet don't have the same amount of color because I believe that the machine pours in the M&M's and doesn't sort it by colours. I also think that M&M's are very creative because the M&M's are covered by candy shell which will prevent it from melting. After we made our DLO everyone in my group checked each others work.  The thing that I found very fun in making this DLO was working collaboratively and talked to each other. We did this because we learn with and from each other. The group that I have worked collaboratively was John, Mataio, Chavda and Hajera.
