I think that my speech was pretty good. I think that I had a good intro and I presented it well. I think i spoke clearly with a nice pace and it was easy to understand what I was saying. Something that weren’t so good was that a stuttered a bit and forgot a whole paragraph on what I was going to say. I think most of my content was relevant and it helped me deliver what I wanted to deliver. My hand gestures were unnecessary and I found my self correcting my self at times.
In Science class we got a project to make a poster on a element and this is what my poster looks like.
I like the fact about my poster on how it looks by it being all white looking very formal and also it has a lot of picture to make it look nice. I think the content looks the best for it seems to be good size and it contains most of the key information.
I think one of the major thing that is bad is the periodic table and it not that clear. Also i wish i had reprinted some stuff because its quite cramped. I think some of the content could have been better because most of it does talk about the actual element and talks about the alloys more.
I really enjoyed this project because i thought i gave us a wide variety of stuff to learn about and giving a lot of freedom of choice while also being really specific. I think the only problum was their was only so many popular elements to choose from some people got elements that are really hard to research.
I think my plan did not really match my video there were 1 or 2 scenes i didn’t do because of how many people i had but for the most part it worked out.
I like that my video is fast paced, i was a little scared it would be too short for fast paced but the time was perfect. For me my favorite part of the project is definitely filming and seeing the end product.

How can and why should you test your fitness?
You can test your fitness by taking your blood pressure or by seeing how long it takes to run a certain distance. You can also measure how many push-ups or sit-ups you can do. You should test your to see if you are at the correct standard for your age. If you do not do well on a fitness test, it tells you that you need to make improvements.
What types of fitness test have you used?
Blood Pressure, flexibility tests, push-ups, sit-ups, running a certain distance, pacer test, sprinting, body fat
How did you do these tests?
Blood Pressure cuff, measuring time, weight, number of reps
How can we compare our results with other people?
Competitions, Comparing results against standards
I think I have good fitness because I usually score well in comparison to my classmates. In the 12 minute run, I came in second. I think my flexibility is average. I can touch my toes, but I know that other people can wrap their hands around their feet. In the vertical jump I scored well, coming in first or second. My parents have forced me to pay close attention to my body fat since I was very young, and have made a rule that I must always be playing a sport and watch how much food and sweets I eat. I think that body composition and overall fitness are important. I like being able to compete well in many sports.
My Fitness Plan
I would like to improve my running endurance and my upper body strength. To do this, I intend to go to the gym at least twice per week and run distance at least once per week.
Be able to do XX pull-ups
Move up one place in cross country
Free Weight Bench Press XX Kgs
I think we did a good job showing what everything was and and showing that the door was locked. I think we had good humour because it turned out we had the key the whole time. I think I did good representing that I hit the door.
I think when we opened The door it wasn’t really realist. when I tried to break down the door it wasn’t really realistic because i got an axe from the ground (why would it be there)
But altogether I think we did ok I think it could have been better if we had a good place to find the axe.
In Art Class we made these Paper Cuts with only 2 pieces of paper to make a positive and negative spaces then we added color and for mine you can see I put yellow green and brown.
For my groups design we surrounded the egg in cardboard and made a collapsing effect like what is shown in this picture.
We then surrounded it in bubble wrap because its a free cushion and its light.
The materials we used are bubble warp, straws, egg tray (made from cardboard), and tape. We used the egg tray to surround the egg and then used it for part of the collapsing mechanism. We used straws to make the main part of the collapsing mechanism and the bubble wrap was the cushion and the tape was to make it all stick together.
When it fell we didn’t think it was successful because we heard a bad noise, but when we opened it up it up the egg was ok. This is my theory of what happened. When it dropped it didn’t drop that fast because there was a lot of air instead of heavy stuff and there was a lot of air resistance. Then, when it hit the ground, the straws broke, absorbing a lot of the impact, but the egg was very strong because it had a hard substance around it. I think the sound we heard was just the bubble wrap popping. And for proof it worked here is a photo.
I think I did well with my schedule because I have a reasonable finish time and my steps in between are clear and easy to understand. Also, I think I did well with learning how to use QuickTime and iMovie. I think I could have improveded the layout of my story board because its not very well organized. I think this project was interesting because I learned a lot of cool and interesting things. I think i could have done better with all my work because it was all usually scattered and unorganized.
