I was not here the day we did our Leadership poster speech for the before video.
After Leadership Day:
If you could make more changes to your poster board, what would you do? Why?
What aspect of your poster board are you most proud of? Why?
How did your speech improve once you had given it several times?
In your opinion, why did it improve?
What do you hope people learned from your poster board and presentation?
What did you do to try to ensure that they learned those things?
What things were surprisingly easy for you today that you thought might have been harder?
What things were difficult today. Why were they hard for you?
What comments were people telling you about your message? What did they say that was meaningful?
I would have added a bit more information to my poster. I also would have maybe put in a couple more decorations, and I would make everything a bit smaller because on our poster board we couldn't put as many decorations as I wanted to because of the space limit. If we did that, then the poster would've looked a lot better.
My paragraphs on how we used the habits. I used examples, and I thought they were really good, and I'm proud of myself.
It got shorter, depending on what questions the visitors asked me, I shortened my speech about a full minute. I also made my speech sound better as I gave it to more and more people.
Because, before leadership day my speech was 2 minutes long, and it was too long. I also did a lot of stammering before leadership day, and a spoke more fluently.
I hoped they learned what cardboard challenge was, and understood exactly what cardboard challenge was, and how we used the habits during it.
I asked questions like, any questions?, or Do you understand? If they didn't understand I would do a better job of explaining next time, and explain to them.
Stammering, it was easy for me to not stammer, when I thought I would have a problem about stammering.
I guess it was difficult that I had to do the first two speeches by myself. They felt like warm ups and I did not do my best in them.
They said that I did a great job explaining it, and half of the volunteers took pictures to share with others.
What did you learn about air in this session (that took a couple periods)? Hopefully, you learned at least three BIG IDEAS!
What evidence do you have to explain the phenomenon that air takes up space (we didn't prove this in our video, but learned it in the first days of the lesson)?
What evidence do you have to explain the phenomenon that air has weight?
When Mr. Solarz watches your video, will he be able to find problems with your "proof" that air has weight? Remember when we watched videos together as a class he mentioned a few ways teachers could trick their students - make sure you didn't use any trickery!
I learned that air has weight and there are lots of ways to show/prove it. Another thing I learned and how to prove it is that air takes up space. I also learned that air is matter because it has weight and takes up space. I already knew these things but I learned how show evidence that air is matter.
There is an experiment that you can do where you have a bowl of water an empty cup but it's really full of air and a ping pong ball that you place on top of the water. When you push the cup down on top of the ping pong ball the ping pong ball does not float to the top of the cup unless you let the air out which you do by pushing the cup in sideways. The ping pong ball will stay at the bottom of the cup all the way down and all the way up.
You can prove that air has weight by filling up two balloons and placing them on either end of a meter stick and placing something to hold it up directly in the middle. if they are level that means that the balloons are the same size. If you take the air out of 1 balloon you will see the meter stick will start to tilt towards the side that has the balloon that is filled with air on it. this proves is that air weighs something because one balloon had air and one balloon didn't and it started to tilt towards the side with the air filled balloon.
In my video which I did with Caitlin we showed we didn't use trickery because we showed that we put the string holding up meter stick on exactly the 50. Also we showed that there was nothing inside the ball that was inflated that it was tipping towards.
Why does Peter Gray feel that children need more experience playing games without adult interference? (Remember: All answers need follow-up sentences! Your answer is always better by the 2nd and 3rd sentences!)
How did you improve your creativity, improvisation, teamwork, and initiative skills today? If you don't know what some of these skills are, please ask me!
Why should other teachers do Global School Play Day in their classrooms?
1. He feels that children need to have experience playing games without having to have there parents Make up the rules. Peter wanted kids to become more creative when they are playing a game so that throughout life they remember this and start doing it with others.
2. We sort of guessed what to do. Then we decided to go around the circle in our group and one by one make a rule. By the time we got around the circle twice it was flowing from person to person. After about five minutes we had created our own game rules! Alyssa, Gianna, Mikey F. and I played our game once and liked it so much that we did it for 30 more minutes. My favorite game that we played with was "Never have I Ever."
3. It helps kids with their creativity and learning how to make their own games with the ones they were given. It is also super fun to do the games with others if you have already make up rules.
