Truth and Reconciliation

This week was truth and reconciliation week to remember the indigenous people in Canada and how many went to these schools that were run by churches. The students were taken away from their families and sent to these schools to forget who they are. When you get there they would take your clothes, cut your hair and make you take a shower then change into a uniform. These students would only see their family twice a year. And if they talked to the other gender they would get abused or starved many died from this and not many survived the schools started in 1883 till 1996 the last school to close was in Saskatchewan in 1996. Our school should start teaching more about indigenous traditions and culture. Reconciliation means to fix broken relationships.

public speaking!

hi its me again Olpmcc,

This year for public speaking i wrote about why… Candy is bad for the body

Do you like candy well I do! And  I’m going to tell you all about why it’s not good for you. Welcome students, teachers, judges and guests! If you know me then you know that I love to eat sweets like cakes, cookies, and candy. Basically anything with sugar, I would dip candy in honey and roll it in sugar if I could. However we all know that eating too much sugar is bad for you because it may cause a variety of health problems such as cavities, diabetes and heart disease.

Too much Candy can cause cavities. Now you may be wondering what even are cavities? Well cavities are decayed areas of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. There are 3 types of cavities: smooth cavities,root cavities & pit cavities. Cavities cause pain and pain is not a friend so if you don’t want any cavities then don’t eat too much candy, or if you can’t stop, like me, then brush your teeth very well!

Eating too much SUGAR can cause Diabetes, now some of you may or may not know what diabetes is. Diabetes is the condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy. Some of the food we eat is turned into glucose, or sugar for our bodies to use for sports and stuff like that. The organ that uses the sugar is called a pancreas, it lies near the stomach and makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies when our sugar levels are to high or to low the insulin works to hard and if the pancreas breaks no you can not get it replaced its gone for LIFE.

Sugar is one of the many causes of heart disease, Heart disease is a condition that affects the structure of the heart. Most people think of heart disease as one condition. But for a fact, heart disease is a group of conditions with many different root causes and sugar is just one of them so unless u want heart disease try not to eat too much BAD sugar. Bad sugar is found in candy, but good sugar is found in fruit. 

In conclusion  candy is not good for the body because it can lead to cavities, Diabetes & heart disease. Cavities as we know are painful and can lead to bigger infections. Too much sugar can affect your pancreas, causing diabetes just a reminder your pancreas is not replaceable. Candy does not only damage your pancreas, it can lead to heart disease. Now i want you to think about do you want any of these so the next time you open some candy think to yourself do i want diabetes, heart disease & cavities a little candy won’t hurt but a lot can which leads to all of these and more thank you for reading!

 

Innovation day!

Introduction

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog about Renewable energy. For my innovation day project I studied solar panels (the other option was wind turbines) but I chose solar panels because they can be big or small and some of them can be really cheep. I think solar energy is a environmentally friendly way of getting energy by collecting the sun’s strong rays and converting them into energy. A solar panel is made out of silicon, there are 2 types of silicone type n and type p. Positive charge and negative charge the tiny flow of light are called protons shooting out of the sun as soon as electrons are collected they flow through an external circuit before running through an aluminium sheet on the back of the device you want to work. And that is how you get solar energy.

Empathise
Before COVID 19 we were able to travel to places such as Florida,mexico and more but ever since COVID we’ve been stuck in our houses. You would have to not wear masks or social distance. One of the hardest things about the lock down for our families is that we are not able to travel and not able to have friends indoors. We think for families that are less fortunate than us would have trouble making money and paying taxes and bills. The positives for some people was that some people got pools or pets and/or a device for online learning.

Ideate 
We are going to make an obstacle playground with an obstacle course and the lights are powered by solar panels.

Scientists in school!

Hey again its Olpmcc,

A scientist came to our virtual class today and taught us a bit more about matter. She taught us about chemical reaction. We made purple bubbles using cabbage water, baking soda and vitamin c  the bubbles were really cool to look at and make. The cabbage water smelt so bad. The scientist made us find out what was in a container from her lab at home. It turned out to be flour and baking soda. I was right from the start when we had to guess what was in it.

Hi its me again Olpmcc,

At the beginning of the school year, I wrote a paragraph blog post about how I felt about wearing masks. Recently I wrote another paragraph blog post about Minecraft being included in the school curriculum. I know I wrote a better paragraph on the Minecraft subject because I put more effort into transition words, introduction and concluding sentence unlike my initial paragraph on masks. I also enjoyed writing the Minecraft paragraph more because its interesting to write about. Since the mask paragraph was written earlier in the year my writing skills have improved.

Minecraft paragraph

Hi, its me again Olpmcc 

 

Minecraft should be involved in teaching because it will inspire kids to learn in a funner way.Firstly, it will motivate kids to learn online because it’s not boring. For example in regular school you are expected to do all of your work so you basically just want to get it done fast so you can do what you want.When playing minecraft you won’t be rushing to be done you would take your time because you’re doing it in a fun way.Secondly, the music is calming and nice to hear. The music makes you feel relaxed. When you are relaxed you can do your work easier than when you’re stressed. When your mind is relaxed it can focus on what you need to do. Unlike when you’re stressed it will be harder to do things.Lastly, Minecraft is used for education. For example the potion making is close to science because you get to learn all about the items that you are using. For example the night vision potion is made from. Nether wart,golden carrot and blaze powder. The way students would get smarter is by learning all about the materials they used. 

In conclusion Minecraft should be involved in teaching because it is fun and inspiring.
