Burn up those calories!

Our current unit in Math is using ratios to solve problems and during class we had to do this activity on how much time you would need to burn all the calories, using ratio.
For this activity, we used Starbucks to choose what food and beverages we would want to eat or drink and choose different activities to burn the calories using this site:  http://www.healthstatus.com/calculate_metric/cbc . After a long time of gathering information, and calculating the math we put them in a poster using Piktochart.

Informative Speech Reflection

Last drama class we presented our informative speech to the class. The topic that I chose for my speech was Halloween and the purpose of it was to inform the audience what halloween is, the history, and how it was celebrated back then, and now. My best skill was volume because even though I wasn’t confident, I spoke loud so that the audience could hear my speech. Except I kept on stumbling over some of the speech so that could be improved on next time. Another thing I should improve on is gestures because it would have been better if I looked at the audience more than looking at my palm cards.

Another speech which was captivating was Sara’s which she talked about blue jeans. I chose her speech because she had good pace when she was talking and her voice was loud enough so that I could hear her speech. Except something she could improve on is gestures because she kept on looking at her palm cards but not the audience. Overall, I think her speech was great!
