|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?
In the 1900's huge amounts of oil were being pumped. Fossil fuels powered many advances in the world in over the last 200 years! The first big oil discovery was in the mid 1970's.
Yesterday me and my group at my table learned about the 21st century skills and how to do them. The 21st t century packet helped me but it is taking slow effect it's still working but it's taking slow effect on EVERYBODY. To me it feels like some of the 21st century skills are coming easy to everybody. To make these posters it took kind of a long time to make posters but I powered through, and that's all I have to say for myself. I chose these two things because I thought that they were both very, very, very important to myself.I think that these skills are important because they will be essential to us in our future.
In the energy unit we are doing an energy debate! Because of that we had to make a persuasive organizer. This helped us when we made a video about geothermal energy.(If you want to see it just scroll down!)
My teacher, Mr. Solarz, likes to teach in a 21st century way. While he does this we get to use lap tops, ipads, and lots of cool websites. I have learned lots so far, even while I am in a 21st century classroom!
I was actually not that surprised about Barack Obama won against Mitt Romney, because if you look at the chart then the chart says that there are a lot more Democrats than Republicans. Plus Barack got more than 100 votes than Romney, and that's all I have to say.
A president can win by getting a lot of electoral college votes. I don't think that the system should be changed in any way.
Today in school we made graphic organizer (above) for our energy group. We got put in groups and my group was assigned the Geothermal Energy. This organizer helped me understand Geo thermal Energy because maybe you thought that geothermal energy was associated with water. In our organizer it said that it wasn't though so it would probably help someone that doesn't understand as much as me and my group do. I might use this organizer in the future because I might actually want to convince people that geothermal energy is the best one out of all the others. Also, I might use it when I want to show people it, but more importantly I would use it when I want to compare all the energys together.
