How I made it: First I took 2 hard pieces of paper and 1 A3 sized regular paper.I put glue all over the back of the 2 hard paper. I folded the A3 paper in half, and glued the hard paper on about 1cm from the crease. Then, i taped the crease to help with the strength. Then i took 6 other A3 paper, and folded them in half, then clipped them on. I put 3cm marks in the crease at the middle, then i get a needle and a string and keep doing a “complicated” method then tie it so it stood. After, my book was finished.
Benefits: I can keep my plans, and my drawings in a book instead of just random pieces of paper. This helps me have a collection of things instead of just one thing.
What would I do to change it: I would either put more paper inside so ther eare more pages, so I could put more things in the book. Because when i run out of pages, I would either have to make a new book or erase things, both which are time consuming and doesn’t make the book a big collection anymore.
Tech 3D has been a really fun class, because we could create things like buildings and huts and pictures, which we would normally not be able to do in regular. When we did our project, Shane and I split up what parts of the museum we would do and what parts the other would do. I did the land like the grass and the path around the place, and also one of the postcard buildings. Shane did the big building, his postcard building, and collected the photos. In the development process, we had many ideas, like a space station, a pyramid, a ant hill, but we ended up with a mansion and 2 little huts. The technical process was a little bit harder than it should have, because we had this idea for something the shape of a guitar in the path, so it took a lot of time (and circles) to get it correct, in the right shape. Also putting the postcard in the pedestals was a bit complicated because we had to move the glass then put it in but then putting the glass back was really hard to get in the right place.
I learned a lot from making this museum, like how to import things, how to edit imported things individually, how to make complicated shapes with circles, using the tape measurer, and from previous classes, how to manage 3d objects in photoshop which is usually in 2d. I could/would use these skill in future if I need to like make a poster or a video on a subject, because these skills could be very useful.
Goal:To add more words to my wonder words wall by writing my words on a sticky note before christmas.
S: I will add more words to my wonder words wall before finishing my book because my wall has currently few words.
M:I will try to add 5 words a chapter or more, and see how many I have on my wall when I finish a book.
A:I will have a sticky note on the cover of the books I read so I have somewhere to write my words for my wall.
R:I will need to bring a sticky note packet with me when I get a new book, and also I need a pencil when I read.
T:I will try to have over 50 words on my wall before christmas.
Goal: To have a higher vocabulary, so that I may use it when writing a essay, or paragraph.
S: I will use words from my wonder words wall, as well as other words I see/hear that I do not know.
M: I will make a spreadsheet on google and insert every new word I learn.
A: Look at buildings when outside to find any ads or posters with words I don’t know, go on my wonder words wall, or listen for when someone says a word I have not heard before.
R: I will spend less time on less effective things, and notice more things, so I have a higher chance of seeing a new word I have not seen/heard before.
T: Have at least 50 words by the end of quarter 3.
