3rd Paideia Seminar Reflection

On Tuesday the year 5&6 extension group had their 3rd Paideia Seminar. A Paideia Seminar is when we all come together and discuss a statement that is given to us by our teachers. Our statement for the paideia seminar was: Is being civilised a good thing!

I think being civilised is a bad and good thing and it’s like somewhere in the middle. Being civilised can be like a bad thing to some people because you can lose your identity and your ancestors ways. For example back in the days in like the islands they used to use wood to heat their food. Nowadays people use stoves and other technology. The good thing is that we need a change in our lives. We need forks and knives instead of using your hands which can spread germs and other things.

During the Paideia Seminar I think I did a little less talking then I did in the 2nd Paideia Seminar. I did my best and I did tried to encourage others to speak but other people spoke over those ones who needed to speak. I think the people who did less talking last time has improved Paikea provided good information about our group. I think it was really hard linking to each others idea's for me and challenging other people. I think that I should've talked a little bit more about the statement because I hardly talked about Is being civilised such a good thing. I also thought that I should've just said what I felt inside of me about the statement and our planet.

I was too scared to say what I really felt about  being civilised. Next time I think I should ask people if they can clarify what they're talking about because I think that I talked less last time is because I did not get some of the things other people were talking about. The other thing I would like to do is share my information I had already had because during the seminar I made up what I was saying instead of using the information that I had already. This is my reflection about our 3rd Paideia Seminar!

Image attribution:

Task Description: Today is Cyber Smart Monday! Today for Cyber Smart Monday we are learning to attribute and image. We had to look up a photo online and we had to set it so the images a free to use. I used an image that was labeled for reuse with modification. That meant that I had used an free image but I will have to change it a little bit. As you can see there is an attribution of the image I got.

The Mars One Project!

Walt: make connections with what we read, and what we have read before.

Task Description: Today for Reading we are finishing off work from last week. Our focus was on the Mars One Project. Here is a presentation about the Mars One Project. We had to read three articles about the project to help us with our presentation. I found out lot's of information like about What astronauts will do on Mars and Who will go to Mars! We also decorated the slide so it's not just a boring grey look. I added images that are related to the Mars One Project and attributed it unless I made the image. This is my Mars One Project Presentation.

Walt: structure a recount. 

Last week on Friday the whole school participated in our Cross Country running race. The weather was super hot but there were still lot’s of puddles and muddy areas. Have you ever participated in a Cross Country race?

In the story we had to include juicy vocab from Cross Country like the muddy puddles and how exhausting we were after we went passed the finish line. The first thing we had to write was the Introduction, Before the Race, During the Race, After The Race and Conclusion. I then posted this on my blog with a photo from the event and here it is!
