Industrial revolution flow chart

The industrial revolution is an important period in time where we started to use technology more and had a breakthrough with it. The thing that caused the industrial revolution is the agricultural production. The that Agricultural production is the most important is because the less people that we had working to make food the more people we had to focus on inventing things and working to produce things on a larger scale. For example less people working on farms would mean that we could have more people mining for coal, more people to make steel items and more importantly more people working in factories to create things. If there are more people working in factories that means more tools made, if there are more people in the mines with the tools that were created you get coal faster, more coal means faster iron production, faster iron production means railways and more tools, more railways means more items transported, more coal also means more steam for the railways and it just keeps looping around in a circle like thing with certain areas branching out and some things going to the same place.

Neodymium in iPhones and the issues with mining it I was sick couldn’t finish it

Inside of our iPhones there is a rare earth element called neodymium (Nd). Neodymium(Nd) is used inside iPhones as a magnet that makes the phone vibrate and makes sound come out of the speakers. Even though this sounds like something not that important since neodymium (Nd) is a rare earth element it has deadly impacts in smaller towns and villages when it is being mined. It also has deadly impacts when thrown away.

In china rare earth mining is affecting a lake where it is very murky and no fish or algae can survive. On the shore of this lake there is a black crust formed by the pollution that is so thick that you can walk on it. There are ponds in china which have toxic chemicals and radioactivity because of thorium. Ingesting thorium can cause certain cancers such as pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, and Leukemia. A local from the town bateau in inner Mongolia stated that “Before the factories were built, there were fields here as far the eye can see. In the place of this radioactive sludge, there were watermelons, aubergines and tomatoes.”

Neodymium can be dangerous in work areas since it can be inhaled through damps and gasses. When inhaled neodymium can cause lung embolisms especially when exposed to it for a long amount of time. Neodymium can also be a threat to humans if it accumulates in the liver

If neodymium is thrown away through household items or is dumped in the environment. When neodymium is dumped in the environment it accumulates in the soil and in water. If neodymium accumulates in the soil and water the amount of neodymium concentrated in humans and animals will start to increase. In water animals neodymium can cause damage to cell membranes which can cause negative effects on reproduction and the nervous system

Empires Unit Reflection

Looking back at this Empires unit I think that I learned a lot about empires. Before this unit I only new about a couple empires like the Aztec Empire and the British Empire. During this unit I learned about Khmer Empire and some other weird empires.

I think that the my finished presentation wasn’t nearly as good as it should have been. I think that this is because me and my partner couldn’t get quite as focused as we should have been at times so we weren’t able to do our best on this project.

If I was a teacher I probably would have said that this work sounded rushed. I would also say that it sounded a bit sloppy. I would say that because the script sounded short and not that well organised.

If I did this piece again I would try to do a lot more in depth research and I would also try to do more work if I finished and help my partner and give him feedback on the presentation. I would also try not to rush my script and then I would read over it rather than leaving it and waiting for my partner to finish the presentation.

Dragon Days Reflection


Designing our project was… A little hard because we would sometimes people in our group would get off track and it would be a couple of people doing work within the group.
Reasons I liked working with my group I like working with my group because it was a good way to get to learn different people better and it was a good way to practice communicating my thoughts and sharing with other people
ATL skills that I used well I think I used communication well because I was giving my group idas at times and I was asking more question than usual.
Great moments along the way I think that a great moment within this project was when we were deciding on what to do we would get it decided really quickly rather than taking a long time to do it.
One thing I learned from another group One thing that I learned from another group is while trying to get people to come to your booth you have to go away from your table and advertise with signs
Next time, I will Next time I will try to give out better ideas and once we have ideas rather than just asking basic thing I will ask more in depth question to help my group even more
Something awesome that I contributed The fire fair

Art reflection unit 3

My subject for this painting is Mikey. I chose Jared because when I first moved to sixth grade he was the first classmate that I met and I started to hangout with him a lot. Mikey  was also the first new friend that I made since I never really hanged out with him in 5th grade but now over the course of 6th grade Mikey has become one of my good friends that I hang out with a lot. I drew Deadpool over Mikey because if you annoy him or make him mad he tries to hurt you.  I added the horse because Mikey’s favourite animal is a horse. I added the volleyball because Mikey likes playing volley ball and sometimes I play with him and he was also the one who got me started on volleyball.

I communicated my ideas when ai showed Mikey as Deadpool instead of making him something really abstract. I did this because I thought that it would be cool to turn a friend into a comic book character that in a way is out of the normal and not a normal abstract painting. I chose the volleyball as a surrounding thing floating around Mikey as something he is thinking about that is floating around him. I chose the horse head around the character because Mikey loves horses so I put horse head around him for the same reason as I put the volleyball around Mikey. I put a horse head  instead of a whole horse so that it didn’t become to realistic and it stayed more abstract.

Zoo building game review

Screen Shot 2016-06-10 at 11.43.17 AM

In this game I learned how to spend money wisely instead of spending it on something that doesn’t  give you that much money. I also learned how to attract people by placing certain things in different ares can cause more people to go to it or less people t0 go to the area. an example of this would be making a lion den next to a restaurant in the middle of the park since a lot of people like lions they would want to go the restaurant for food.I think that anyone could play the game just as something fun to do but I think it would be mostly younger kids since the graphics are more for smaller kids and I think that this would also be a challenging game that little kids would want to play. I also think that they would play it because this game is really entertaining and it is fun to explore the different ways of completing different levels. I think that people should play this game because it will teach them how to use money wisely instead of spending it on thing that don’t matter. I think that the point of this game is to let people have fun while learning how to manage money better than they currently are. I think that this game was fun even during the hard levels that took several tries to complete. I five this game a thumbs up for helping kaids and being fun

Economics plan


My research question How can I make enough money to get more books
Why I chose this question I chose this because during the summer I usually go to the bookstore but I usually get to many and my mom won’t spend any more money on getting me more books. I usually get books that I want but then I look through even after we bought the books to see if I missed something that I might want and I usually find something but my mom will never buy it for me
My plan (sequencing brainframe)  
Collection of Information, include sources Amazon Ranger’s Apprentice Book 1
DECISION  I will make a juice stand to get money to buy myself more books this summer and go with a mix of the cheapest books to ensure minimal cost. If I have a cheap price on my lemonade stand I will have more customers and I will reach My goal easily.

This is the economics plan that I made. I will most likely do this plan if I stay have enough time during the summer. I didn’t give this a complete yes because during the summer I usually spend most of my time at my cousins houses or at a pool swimming. I do want to try to get this plan done so I can get enough money to get the books that I want. The total cost of all the books that I wanted was $99.77 and I think that this is an achievable goal if I make Juice. My estimate for how many people would come was 10 people. I would price  the juice at $2 so it wouldn’t be to expensive. if I got $20 a day I would be able to get $100 in 5 days and if I continued I would be able to make a lot more money for toys I might want.

Art reflection

I think that one of my strengths was carving the motif. I think that this was one of my strengths because I made sure that I still left some marks from carving on my motif because I thought it would look better with a few carving marks instead of just being the design that I made. The second reason why I thought that this was one of my strengths was because I had tried to stay precise and used a small tool to carve along the outsides so that I could minimize the number of mistakes I made when carving along the edges of my motif. I think that my weakness was printing. this is because when I made my first prints which were red paper and black ink it took me 7 different prints to make 4 good prints that I could use in my design. one of the reasons it took me 7 different prints to get 4 good ones that I could use when I printed my paper would sometimes slip and I would have to make a new print. My second reason for making 7 red paper and black ink prints was because I didn’t do enough practice prints on spare paper so I didn’t do the best prints I could’ve done.

I think that one of the things that helped me with my design was solving the problem of me not being able to come up with a final motif to use my print making. I used this because when I couldn’t find a final design I just made a couple changes to one of the three designs that I made. I think that this helped me a lot because I would’ve spent at least half a lesson trying to come up with another motif design. If i didn’ come up with another motif design I would’ve been really far behind in my printmaking and I was already behind because I missed 2 lessons. If I had tried to come up with another motif I would never have finished printing my motif and I wouldn’t finish the unit.

My original motif was inspired by Celtic with weaving lines but then I realized that adding in weaving lines would take to long also so I ended up not using the weaving lines in my final motif design. I chose to try and use a Celtic design in my motif because I thought that it would add a cool twist to it rather than having a plain motif. I also chose this because I really liked the concept of weaving lines in my motif. My original design was the inside of the basketball would have weaving lines as the lines that are inside the basketball. My personal interest was basketball I chose basketball because it is one of my favorite sports. Another reason I chose basketball was because I really like sports

In my motif, I used 12 curve lines and 18 straight lines. I used the 12 curve lines as part of my basketball design in the center of my motif and on the outside circle surrounding the basketball. I used the circle around the basketball to represent a basketball hoop because my inspiration was basketball. My straight lines were lines coming out of the basketball hoop to connect up the other motifs without it being a plain basketball and a plain circle around it. this was also to add something that wouldn’t keep my motif at something really boring that no one would want to look at. In my motif I used Black paper with red paint in the middle because that is one of my favourite combinations and the rest of my papers are lighter colored so I thought that the black paper with red ink would stand out in the middle. on the corners I used blue paper with red ink to make add something that still continued the pattern of useing red or black and I didn’t want to have the same thing as in the middle so I used red and blue which mix with eachother well. I also chose these colors because they are 2 of my favorite colors. For on the sides I used red paper with black ink since it is the inverted version of black paper and red ink. This wasn’t my middle color because this arangement doesn’t stand out as much as the black and red in my opinion. I think I was able to make a unified pattern since the sides are all one color and the corners are one type while the middle is also one type. I think that my interlocking is very accurate because all the corners have interlocked with a line and the top and sides are interlocked with a line. I think the interlocking and my pattern with the colors was the same because they both interlock in the corners and on the sides while the middle is different.



My best skill was speaking because I barely stumbled while talking and I would also use hand gestures that show what I’m talking about. I also think that this was strong because I tried to project my voice so that everyone could hear what I was saying. I should work on remembering my speech because at times I stumbled when speaking about some of the things in my speech. I also know that i didn’t say everything I wanted to say because I forgot about the details of what  I was going to say.This was a problem for me because that means I couldn’t get the best score that I can. I think one of the ways to fix this is by making palm cards. or trying to remember my speech more. I would rate my speech a 4 and a 5 because I did go over the time that we were given which was 2 mins and my speech was 2 minutes and 6 seconds. Another reason was because I didn’t have enough information on why I chose this person and I just made the few parts I was talking about longer.

I would rate this speech and 8 out of 8 because he explained things in his speech really well. He also had many things to talk about and his story was well connected and it was like him telling a story of his past after his introduction and he also ended it with a relly good conclusion.
