What's LE like right now for me? by Rohan
Hello everybody my name is Rohan Sheemar and this is my blog. I am going to discuss about my school activities and what I’m involved in. First, I would like to say that I really like my school. When I was at Star Academy, I always wanted to know what Leading Edge would be like. Since I have been coming to LE, I have gotten to know my teachers, principal, staff and all the students.
I enjoy all the classes I am enrolled in. My subjects are P.E, Expressions, Core, and Math. Many of my classmates are from Star Academy. In P.E., we are doing something called "Create a Game". It is where you group up and you are the only one allowed to choose 3 things from the choices given. Once your group has everything, then we have to be creative and create a game. If you are not participating with your team then, you will have to sit out and not play your groups game. There is paper that you will have to fill out. You will test your game to see if it actually works. Then you would group up with another and explain to them how to play our our game. After that they would explain to you what their game is and how it works. The other team would grade you on how well you explained your game. Our game had paddles, tennis ball, and bowling pins. We used the paddles to hit the tennis ball with and then we tried to get it in the basket. If you get it in the basket and it hits the pins then you can get extra points. So that was our Create a Game.
Expressions is very fun because you are allowed to listen to music while you do your projects. The project that we are working on right now is a apple project. All we have to do is design an apple and use oil pastels, charcoal, etc, and more. So you are required to create 4 apples and your are supposed to put it into a collage. The collage can be in many different shapes as long as it’s a collage of the apples. In my project I used charcoal so I could get that shadowing. I did not want to use watercolor because I am not the best at water coloring them.
In Core/Science Tech we are working on this project called Solar Oven Design Challenge. So what you do is you group up and you are designing a solar oven. So what my group did was we had a box and you had a type of insulator. We would get a thermometer sensor and we would see how high the temperature would be. We just did this project and we are still continuing it. In Core/Social Science we are doing a lot of thing such as learning about Mesopotamia, preparing for that test and much, much, more. In Core/Language Arts we are getting ready for the Mesopotamia test. This test is going to be a 7 paragraph essay on the test. Core is very fun for me and the other students in my core class.
Hope you enjoyed my blog!
