How I feel after exhibition

Now that PYPX i over I feel more confident about doing a presentation in front of many people. While we were presenting, we had to talk loudly and clearly so that everyone could understand. I think that made more confident. Exhibition Also made me feel more confident not only about presenting, but also about my self: I wouldn't have imagined that I would have accomplished such a difficult task. I though that we wouldn't be able to finish our action in time. But we did. And I think that that improved my confidence.

I also feel that my English improved. I learned many new words about Deforestation. This is because we had to be specific with the words we used. We also had to do our information report, and we had to change our sentences many times. An example was that one of my group members found a fact that Deforestation causes Landslides, and I didn't know what they were, so I looked a picture of it in the internet and I understood.

But most Importantly, I feel happy to know that I contributed to make a change in the world. I was so happy it made really sad knowing that I couldn't be at UNIS in grade 10, And couldn't do it again. I hope that our Action and Information report will inspire other people to do the same. 

Even though most of the things that I feel after exhibition are positive, not everything is. I feel sad that exhibition is over and in the school were I am going to go in grade 7 or 8 doesn't do this kind of things. Also that now that exhibition is over my group stopped with our Action. It's true that we already finished making our Green Space plan, but I don't think that our communication person already send the E-mail to the operations team with the picture of our plan in it. I would at least try to finish that before stopping everything. Because what is the point of having made our Action if then we don't use it?

What I really enjoyed about PYPX was to make a difference in the world, and how people live, as Deforestation affects all living things

PYPX!!!!

Hello! Today I am going to talk about my PYPX journey!!!
PYPX, from beginning to now!!!


So, it started six weeks ago, when we were first told our groups. I remember that I was super nervous!!!

I discovered that I was in the Deforestation group, with some people that we will call, Ja,   ( Ja is not the same person as J, from one of my old blog posts ) and G. 

When we got together, we discussed about Our central Idea, (Which BTW is 'Deforestation affects all livings things.) and our lines of inquiry. 
( which are: 1.responsible use of forests supports sustainability, 2. We are inquiring into how deforestation  affects the environment, 3. There are strong connections between trees and the air we need. )

After we had to come up with an action. Our action is to design a garden, and if possible, spread awareness with a poster. 

Until now, that we are working on our action, And it'a almost time to present!!! 

This is how my group was thinking to display it.

This week was really hard and interesting.

We had to work a lot on our information report, but i'm still not done.

In our groups we had to do a lot of things, it was really tiring.

Math was also hard but PYPX was harder.

 In my PYPX group we had a guest speaker it was really interesting.

Today at art Mrs. Andrea explained to us about our new unit, scenes with value. Before I thought that if you mixed black with a color it will just be a dark color, and if add white to a color it would just be a light color. But today I learned that black plus any color equals a shade, white plus any color is a tint, and grey plus any color is a tone.

Today we also had a substitute teacher, her name is ms. Bianca.

I wonder what will happen tomorrow!

Market day

22 march I went to market day. If you remember me from last year, you will know that I also did it. It was really interesting seeing how it's like to be the client on market day, as last year I was selling it.

So, as you probably know from my last blog post, Thursday I tough my buddie how to do a name mandala. It was really fun and I enjoined it. If we could do it again, then I would spend less time on the design.
