For our unit, we learned the parts of human bodies and motions. To see the body parts better, we dissected a chickens wing.
After dissecting the wing, I relised that the ing is very similar to human arms. It had almost all parts that were in human arm, and it moved similarly too. The most interesting part was moving the wing with ligaments. We pulled the ligament with the pinset and we saw how the wing moves. The difrent part is that ofcourse its smaller, but they also don’t have fingers like humans. Which is why theydon’t have ligaments on their fingers.
WHAT’S A SUPER FOOD? – food that has more nutrients than other foods.
In this unit, we were learning about energy for life. Now in this task we were researching about superfoods. My super food is called TIGER NUTS.
What is a Tiger nut?
Tiger nut is a nut that contains many kinds of nutrients. It was found in Ukraine, China, Hawaii, Indochina, New Guinea, Java, New South Wales, and various oceanic islands. People eat this nut because they think its good for tissue repair, muscles, the blood stream and for body growth and etc.“Tiger nut tubers contain almost twice the quantity of starch as potato or sweet potato tubers.” There are many ways to eats this nut. People eat this nut by making it in to milk, food ingredient and etc.
What kind of Nutrient does Tiger nut have and what does it do?
Tiger nuts has a lot of nutrients. 7100 mg of potassium is found in 1 kg of tiger nuts. This mineral is good for cells to work properly, heart function, allow electricity to move through your body and etc. Also tiger nut had 900 mg of calcium per 1 Kg. It is good form making strong bones and teeth. It also helps your body system work properly.
Walnut (Greek nut)
Walnut is also vey healthy diet food. People eat this in different ways too. Some people like to eat as just nut, but others put this in cakes,pies, yogurts, snacks and etc. This food had 4410 mg of potassium per kg. It has 980mg for calcium per kg.
How to eat it
In result, tiger nuts has less calcium but more potassium than walnuts. If you want more potassium, I recommend you to eat tiger nuts. But if you want calcium, you should eat walnut. If you want both nutrients, you can mix both nuts and eat it. But!!!!!!!! nuts have a lot of carbohydrate and fat , so you can get gain some weight if you eat a lot. I recommend you to eat not more than fistful a day.
Is calling some of food “SUPER FOOD” OK?
I think that it is not right to call some of foods superfood. Super food is just a food that has higher number of ONE nutrient. When I looked at tiger nut and walnut, walnut had more calcium than tiger nut. i think that all food has their own kinds of nutrient and different amount of them. You cannot manipulate people to buy foods that is just called superfood ( people think that its better for health if its called super food).
Choose topic – Choose your renaissance man or women – check TSC – Make a research sheet – Research ( School EB, Wikipedia, etc) – Check TSc- Think of a story design and sketch – start making your comic book using comic life and other resources — check TSC – Write the reflection paragraph
I in this order because I wanted this to be more specific and more organized.
Hello in science, we learned about minerals. In this unit we looked at what kind of minerals are in our school technology and where are they from.
The technology that i chose is cell phone. I chose cell phone because its the most common technology that students have in school and also outside the school. We use this technology for researching taking photos, education and etc. Cell phone contains loads of minerals. Gold,Tin,Tungsten,Tantalum are one of the most common minerals. These minerals are used for parts in cell phone. Tantalum stores electricity in your phone.Tungsten makes your phone vibrate.And tin is used for sodor. Gold is for wyaring.
These minerals are from diffrent countries. Congo or Democratic Republic of Congo is the country where these minerals comes the most, but because Congo has conflict mineral. They have wars and kudeta.
First problem is that almost all of the hired people are forced or threatened to work in mines. The people who are watching miners so they work properly are wearing military clothes and have gun with them. It shows that if you disobey, They beat people and miners get injured badly.
Second problem is the place that they work has pretty bad condition. They work in difficult location. Also they have to use horrible tools to dig the ground. Their job contains a lot of lifting that causes injuries and even deaths too.
Third problem is that Congo is one of the most dangerous country to be a women. Everyday women and girls has to face the threat from military, and even police. They use rape as a weapon. Some armed groups, feel guilty of forced to rape, and leading girls and women injury and even death.
Congo is having a lot trouble because of the technology that we are using in school. To help our school should I think school should reuse the devices. Also school should make a charity that helps Congo’s people. They should also provide food , clothes, books, educational stuff and etc to Especially for little kids and women. I think think also we should tell the situation of Congo to whole school.

Backward-Looking: Before this unit I knew that Magellan was the first person to find Philippines and that Lapu – Lapu was the one who killed Magellan. Also I knew I little about Korean and Chinese empire too. Before I didn’t really know about Spanish empire. This project helped me to learn alot of stuff
Inward-Looking: I was most satisfied by my one slide that I made. It was about clothing that Spain influenced to Philippines. I liked this slide because I had a really good blog that showed really good facts about clothing. Also I was satisfied by our work. Me and Airi really worked together hard and made a really good presentation. I am really glad that I had such a good partner.
Outward-Looking: I did diffrent by finding some small facts to make a good presentation. I tried to first find the fact and then an evidence. And I think that that is the difference. I also tried to find alot of blogs and try find a informations. And I asked Airi to do the script and I did the presentation slides.
Forward-Looking: One thing I want to improve is to to my time more wisely. Some times I would get distracted and not pay attention to my work next time if I have I&S project, I want to more concentrate and make my work better.
I thought it would be super hard like in 6 grade but it was opposite. It was super fun!!!!
I enjoyed mountain biking and hallway club. I was in advanced level in mountain biking so it was little challenging but really fun.
Also there was this club called Hallway club. Its when boys and girls meet in first floor room hallway and chat and have fun. It was really funny because we did some silly things like deodorant terror and everyone was suffering from the small. I did well catching spiders in my room. And I had lot of challenge with rock climbing . I thought I was good at it but I was really bad this time and didn’t succeed even once. I learned that being in community with boys and girls was a very good idea, because you get to know each other better and also get to know the opposite gender better too. This expedition made me grow with my mind. I learned how to talk and communicate with people better. I think expeditions are important because you learn collaboration and communication. From expedition I started to use risk taker skill . I started to help people and take a risk like I did something that anyone wanted to do. I will continue these with try to help people and trying new things.
This unit, I used my grandmother for my subject, because she is my roll model. My grandmother is a doctor and she saved a lot of people. She also helps women who cannot have babies. She already made more than 4000 babies!. She is also very important person for me because she is my grandmother she is very nice to me and my younger brother. When we come to Russia, my grandmother always organizes something for us. I am telling her personality and her job.
I choose Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh for my artist. The elements I chose are: setting, objects,and color. I drew lilac trees ,because her favorite flower is lilac. I drew her in the field. That symbolizes the freedom. She is always tired because of the work. I wanted to draw her being in quiet peaceful field full of flowers and trees. I also drew amber necklace on her neck. Its because her favorite stone is Amber. Also her necklace is not just the necklace, its the necklace that her brother gave her. It symbolizes her love of brother. I also tired to use bright color to how she is happy and peaceful. In my drawing, grandmother is wearing blue dress. Its because she always wear simple skirt in her house. I wanted to show that she is really comfortable because she always wear that. That means she feel comfortable with that clothes.
