PBL reflections

we have chosen our essential question: What were the major events of WWII and how can they be reenacted? We also are researching more and more about what we have to do. We are going to reenact D-Day and pearl harbor, and possibly Russia. We are still researching more and more to find out what else we can add to our project.

pbl goals

Today i am planning on working with my brothers to figure out what to do next with our project. We are going to change our essential question to make it more in-depth and we are going to research more about the events of WWII. I am also still working on my video, i have park footage i also need to include in my video to make it more entertaining.

Daily goals

Me, Mitchell, and Davis have been brainstorming for a project. We FINALLY found one about alkali metals but it was to dangerous and we couldn't get the materials. So we are back to the drawing board trying to find another idea on a project. We want our project not to be a powerpoint and to have a lot of stuff interacting with each other. We were also thinking about doing something involving science. I plan on completing my goal by completing the project planning form..

PBL goals

My goals today are to find out my ideas for my project and continue on snowboard video. I emailed my experts and I have a lot of feedback to fix my video to make it more exciting. I plan on working on my video right away. I am using imovie to fix my video. I need to add transitions and tune the audio up a little bit. Me and Davis are going to be brainstorming good ideas for our project so we can get a good head start on it. I will put the new video up as soon as I can.

Literary Analysis 3

In the book City of Thieves, the time period sets the story. The two boys, Lev and Koyla set out on a journey for eggs so the chief of polic could have food. It is tough because there is no eggs in the city. The period(WWII) effected the city in numerous ways. People are dying everyday, there is no food, and some people have no place to live. The author really sets the dark mood in the book by explaining the devastation of WWII.
