I am having a blast at south but I also miss Westgate a lot being in Mr. Solarz's class changed my whole view on technology and 21st century learning, even though we where the guinea pigs I had a blast in 5th grade it was my favorite year.
Our class was "taking a trip to mars" and we all made voki's about who we are because we are all from different places, have different names, and have different jobs. My name was Silvana Mendez I was from Holguin Cuba and i was a lighting safety person!
What we had to do was write about a state of nature witch is a place where there are no rules or laws
This is my science fair backboard, We did a science fair in our class and my project if you saw my video was What Type of White Bread Molds Quicker Than The Other Brands Of White Bread, none of my bread has molded because I did not give it any oxygen or moisture.
In WEX we had to write a story about a mundane situation with an Introduction, rising actions, problem or conflict, and a climax. We had a few half an hour periods to write our storys and to publish them in a podcast!
I learned that the first arbor day was on April 10th 1872. Arbor day is about taking care of plants and planting more of them to be kind to our air because that is where we get our air. The reason they started arbor day is because of the lack of trees in Nebraska City, Nebraska
"Arbor Day is not like other holidays. Each of those reposes on the past, while Arbor Day proposes for the future." A quote by: J Sterling Morton
What we did was we went outside on a little earth day walk around the school and took pictures. We where partnered up with one IPad per group of two or three to take the pictures. I had fun and got some fresh air before recess.
