In Humanities, we have been studying ancient civilizations.
1) What similarities did you find among the civilizations you studied? Why do you think civilizations share these things in common?
The main similar thing between the civilizations was that they all made pottery, and statues. The reason why I think the civilizations had this in common was because making statues and pottery looked beautiful, and it was a good way to express emotion and feelings.
2) What differences did you find between the civilizations? Why would these civilizations evolve differently?
The main difference between the civilizations was the religious beliefs. The civilizations would evolve differently because they would worship different gods and think in a different way.
3) Why do you think humans needed civilizations? Why did they need community?
Humans needed civilizations. I think this because in a civilization, there a many people. If there are many people, you can help easily, and solve problems easier around you.
4) If you could have lived in any of the civilizations which one would you live in and why?
I would live in the Nile River civilization. I would live in this civilization because there is a very fertile river very close to the civilization. At this civilization, the crops and harvesting is always very very good. That is why I would like to live near the Nile River.
During the investigate, I learnt that to make a good tutorial, your steps need to be simple, and one-at-a-time. If the steps are not simple, the tutorial is hard to understand. Also, if you are talking during a tutorial, you need to speak in a clear voice. Especially if the tutorial is showing how to draw something.
To make my tutorial better, I think that I need to make the steps more simple, and easy to understand. I think that I put too much information into the one step.
In technology, we are studying what makes a good tutorial. I looked at some tutorials, and chose my favourite. You can watch the tutorial with the link above. Here is what I thought of it.
I would choose the How to draw a Dragon as my favourite. I would choose this one as my favourite because the drawer uses a clear voice which is important so you can understand better. His hand never covers up the drawing so the drawing steps are easy to follow. The drawer also used timelaps which are good when the drawing takes a very long time. The only thing I think he needs to improve on is that he spoke a little bit too fast, so I missed a few steps. But overall, I thought this tutorial had lots of detail, and was genuinely easy to follow.
For the speech, I think I did fairly well for my body language, except I did fidget a little bit with my hands when I was holding my que cards. I think I need to put in a little bit more body movement to express my feelings more deeply. I think my clarity was very good, and I heard my voice and understood everything without any trouble. My tone was quite good, but I think I should have put some more emotion in my voice. So, overall, I think I need to just improv on my bogy language and changing my tone a little bit more.
