This week & Concert

This week we started researching about our exhibition and lines of inquiry.We talked about what action we want to take. During the research me and Melissa decided to separate and research different lines of inquiry. I hope that we get all of our stuff done because we are only a group of 2. We also had our music concert I played 3 songs on the cello rhythm fever, here it comes and the last song cello and violin we played tiptoe boo. The whole grade 5 sang hold back the river and I'm on top of the world. Then we sang Grade 4 & 5 have you ever seen the rain. I felt very nervous at the start but when we started playing I got more confident.

PYPX & Math

 This week we found out our exhibition groups and the sustainable development goal we are going to focus on #10 which is reduce inequalities. Our central idea is: "people around the world can reduce discrimination to create equality for everyone". We also met with our mentors and decided our main words and lines of inquiry. In Math we did probability of rolling 2 dice. We picked a number which we think would get rolled the most then rolled then 100 the people who picked that number which got rolled more than others got candy. I found out that the probability of rolling 12 is 1/36. I also found a pattern in the amount of combinations of each number up to 12 it could be rolled like- 12= 6+6-1. The pattern went like this 1 2 3 4 5 6 5 4 3 2 1.

Exhibition & Test

This was the first week of exhibition and we had to write our compass points N- what do you still need to know about exhibition? E- What excites you about exhibition? S- what suggestions do you have about exhibition? W- What worries you about exhibition? We started to do or Passion+Issue=Action equations . First I felt that it will be hard to find my passions and the issue.But when I started doing them I figured it out.
This week we also had our ISA (International School Assignment) tests for Math, Reading and Writing. Some questions were easy and some were hard for me.

This week Field trip

This week we went on a field trip to ho chi minh mausoleum. We went to his house and saw where he lived and worked we also saw where the other government people worked before. We also saw him embalmed it's when people make him look realistic but when he is dead. He looked like he was sleeping. I think that the vietnamese people embalmed him so the future generations could have a chance to see him.

French class

In french class, we had to do a writing assignment about 5 members of our family. The most challenging part was to describe each family member because I didn't know what to say about them. And to describe what they are like. I was successful when I had to write 150 or more words.

This week

This week I wrote a discussion essay about communism and capitalism I wrote different points of view on each one of them and I added my point of view in the conclusion. I also did a math question about how many counties 5A students have been in and then I figured out the mean (average). I also read a biography about gandhi how he fought for indian rights I think that he did the right thing to stand up and not just be under control. I did my home country's  governing structure and I found out that our president is kinda like a dictator because he changed the law and became president for a 5 year term instead of 4 year term. We had a guest speaker and he talked about his passion and what he does. He is the MS and HS service learning and his passion is to help others achieve their passions. He encourages other people so they can turn their passion into helping others.

This week

This week in math we focused on finding the average by adding the data and dividing it by the number of people who answered the question. My question: How many countries 5A students have been in? I found out the average and it's 22.7 countries. In literacy we started writing a discussion essay and I wrote mine about communism and capitalism. I used arguments for both communism and capitalism. In U.O.I we had to search up our own country's government and figure out the structure of it. Then explain how everything works and what is the job of each part of the government.
