Welcome to PBL Science!
Hi everyone! This is my PBL science blog and in this page you will be updated with most of the information and stuff we do in class. Many of the planning and paperwork will also be posted around this area. Everyone once in a while we will have a youtube video that will explain what we have currently done and what we plan in the near future. PBL science is us knowing how the body works and we have to chose a different body organ system with our partners, research that topic as well as build a working model of it.
PBL Update #1 – Explanation
This video will explain what we have today and what we plan to do in the next class. So far everything has been working out and more problems will probably exist later. We have finished building the intestines and next we need to attach them together and add the filters after that we poke holes inside the stomach to include the liver, gall bladder, esophagus and stomach.
PBL Update #2 – Mistakes Made and Lesson Learned
This video will explain and give a short description on what we have accomplished since last update. We are almost done and working some issues on our stomach connecting to the intestines. This video will be solo’ed by me. This video mainly states our problems and mistakes
PBL Last Update #3 – Final Product
This video focuses on our final product and explains the structure and function of each organ inside our digestive system. It explains why we chose the certain material and how it gives real life example. Lastly, it explains why the digestive system is important and how it keeps us healthy.
PBL Reflection – Strengths
Throughout the PBL unit I have really enjoyed working with a partner of our choice. We had many hardships that we went through and multiple strengths helped us to achieve our goal. Whilst we were working, I saw myself leading the group for most of the time. We took turns leading and when one of us had a different idea, we would elaborate onto it and figure out a better solution.
Collaboration & Teamwork is both important in problem solving because you need one to establish the other. In order to collaborate, you must have teamwork. When you have teamwork, you are able to work with each other and share your own opinions on the issue. Once you have shared your opinions and worked together, you can both discuss your ideas to make it even better. Once you have an idea, you must work together to accomplish that goal/idea. If none of these strengths are shown in a group work, it would take much longer. With two brains, you will be able to accomplish the same goal faster than one, you must use both ideas to create one.
I really enjoyed the last video where it showed that more people is better than one. Together all of these creatures worked together to help one and moreover the work wasn’t able to be accomplished without others helping. This video showed teamwork and promoted the idea of helping others.
