Technology Flag challenge

This week on Thursday and Friday mornings we had to make a flag that lowered and raised with a metre ruler, tape that was a metre long, scissors, string and paper that was 5 metres long.

On Thursday we completely failed and when we did it on Friday we could make it stand on its own for a bit but then it fell over. After we failed Mr Wood said that we could go back and make it again with the same things, making the same thing but we could use as much of the materials as we needed. We made our flag and it was taller than some people in our class.

Wildboy: Vocabulary task

Answering the big pondering question for Wild Boy

Wild boy is a journal that we are reading and this is one of the activities about it.

Brando 'Wildboy' Yelavich has ADHD and has decided to raise money for the Ronald McDonald charity by walking the length of New Zealand's coastline.


Big Pondering Question: I wonder what are the four different reasons Brando planned, undertook and completed his journey?

1. He was fighting with his parents about everything
2. School was a really bad fit for him
3. It took him a long time to realise that he wasn't fit for school
4. After he left school he went through a few jobs that didn't work out.

Then after being inspired by the movie Into the wild he dreamed about a different life and then decided to go for a walk.

How I felt about doing this task

I think that I did well at this task after a few attempts. I shared some of my ideas with others and listened to other people too. When it didn't work you just need to start again and not go the same way as before so making mistakes always helps.
