Bookapedia term 2

TITLE: skimming and scanning

WALT: create criteria to evaluate sources

A good source: -has a good reputation, be from a trusted expert

-not ask you for private information or have virus warnings

-contain the keywords/information you are looking for

TITLE: Summarising
WALT: Persist to find information to gain a wider perspective


TITLE:  wouldn't want to be a

I wouldn't want to be a World War One pilot because the planes were faulty, slow and non armoured plus the fact that your fuel tank could be shot, you could be frozen and the wings could come of. 

Feedback/Feedforward: Good job on informing what you have done in Bookapedia but maybe you could explain what Bookapedia is? Would an alien know what your talking about? Patrick­čśť

Evaluation: I find Bookapedia hard because sometimes you have to look over lots of websites to get better at finding good websites and you only find one good website.

Maths portfolio

We have been learning about fractions.

This week we have been doing a quiz for maths with fraction questions, I got 5 done. I created this for people to try to solve and to prove it's hard this is the question that tripped up the deputy principal but it was just put in to trip him up. The one below it is a real math question.

I learnt about fractions of sets and fractions of irregular shapes.  The ones below are equivalent fractions.
Feedforward feedback I like the way you made the questions not easy next time you can do more. 
Evaluation I found the slide extremely hard to make. I now know how to find fractions in irregular shapes better because I used to do more complex fractions rather than than simpler ones.  

You can see more here


Evaluation: I need to drown out distractions so I am faster

Science eportfolio post

In P4 we have been doing weather experiments. My one was to make fog in a jar. My hypothesis was that the heat in the jar and the ice would form fog in the jar. The first experiment failed. I think this was due to air conduction systems in our house and heat around and in the jar.

click here to watch the video of the experiment that worked. 

Feedback/feedforward: I like how you said what you were aiming for but maybe you can say what type of weather you focused on?

Evaluation: I found this hard as I was going to use a certain type of jar but the lid just popped off when under pressure. We had to think how to alter the experiment to make it work.

Evaluation: i found this extremely challanging.
