    1. Most difficult was finding good information

  3. How does this artifact connect to the Profile of a Graduate? Be specific in your connection. (Question Stems)

    1. This artifact connects to my profile of a graduate because I used my critical thinking to create this project.

  4. How do I plan to take this learning forward? or What would I change if I created this artifact again?http://bit.ly/POG-Reflect

    1. If I did this project again I would have taken more time making the video instead of putting all of it into the board.

Pog reflection

To improve this project and our settlements I would have found more things to do because there aren’t a lot of things to do in this project other than the roads the flag the constitution and that’s it that’s not enough for this much time. This is a waste of time that we could be using on things that teach you and you don’t sit around watching everyone doing small parts. I think if we had smaller groups this would be better. I can’t include myself because we have too many people and not enough work. Also I would have made things better in the constitution because there were some things in the constitution that we didn’t need and also there were things that the constitution needed. I feel that we should have had more things that we had to do like the economy. It would be cool if we had a project where we make an economy within the people of the settlement. I feel like we were missing something with the economy because we should be like in real life we’re they make unions and economy with currency and products.

Ultimate frisbee BEARS behavior

Ultimate Frisbee BEARS Behavior

Quarter 1 PE Final Project

Block A 2

 

I chose ultimate frisbee for BEARS Behavior because i feel that everyone on my team, including me, was behaving and respectful. Another thing with that is we were actively learning what strategies worked and didn’t work so great.

 

REFLECTION

   I am most proud of my active learning in ultimate frisbee. we worked on perfecting our strategies throughout all of the games witch in the end helped our team with coordination. Because we had people always ready to catch and Garde our opponents.

   The most difficult part was not getting mad at other teams when we lost. Like when we worked so hard and tried so hard but we still lost because the other team was so good. If I could go back and change anything I would be more respectful and understand that it’s just a game.

   This connected to my profile of a graduate by making me think critically. Ultimate frisbee did this by making me and my team think on the spot of what would benefit me and my team. Like should I throw the frisbee to the tall guy being guarded or the guy in the far corner that is wide open. A connection that I made is getting mad isn’t worth it because in the end I can’t change what has already happened.

    I plan to take this forward into almost anything that can have a frustrating outcome including basketball trap shooting and family stuff to.this relates with what I do in class because in class I need to be respectful, responsible, and behaved or else I might get a bad grade or an unhappy teacher.

Ultimate frisbee movement patterns

Ultimate Frisbee Movement Patterns

Quarter 1 PE Final Project

Landon Bolton

Block A 2

 

I chose ultimate frisbee for movement patterns because In ultimate frisbee I showed manipulative movement patterns by throwing the frisbee and catching the frisbee . Throwing and catching the frisbee has something to do with movement patterns because it is a manipulative movement pattern. A manipulative movement patterns are the movements of the parts of the body to control , twist, beat, bounce, bend, throw or catch an object.

 

REFLECTION

I was proud of my team during ultimate frisbee because of the use of communication and strategy. Like this one time when one of my teammates throw the frisbee from across the gym and yelled the name of the person that they were throwing it to and then they snapped into action and grabbed it mid air and got us a point.

     The most difficult thing about ultimate frisbee for me was catching the frisbee. Like this one time where I was thrown the frisbee and it bounced of my tummy and it hurt. In Ultimate Frisbee I showed communication by communicating with my team and making strategies with them. Like this one time we’re we just chucked it across constantly and it somehow worked.

     This contributes to profile of a graduate in the communication area because I frequently communicated and strategize with my teammates. I used strategizing,  calling out what’s happening so my teammates don’t throw the frisbee at the other team. That was an important part of scoring in the game.

    I would like to take this forward into out-of-school activities like trapshooting and basketball. Something that I would change about my movement is I would get better at throwing and catching the frisbee because I’m not very good at it. And this artifact doesn’t relate to anything in class.

Ultimate frisbee active participation

Artifact

I chose ultimate frisbee for active participation because I was actively participating in the whole time. I  actively participated by throwing and receiving the frisbee throughout the course of the activity.

    I was proud of my team during ultimate frisbee because of the use of communication and strategy. Like this one time when one of my teammates throw the frisbee from across the gym and yelled the name of the person that they were throwing it to and then they snapped into action and grabbed it mid air and got us a point.

     The most difficult thing about ultimate frisbee for me was communicating with everyone because there were lots of people on each team and there was no way to remember who is on the other team. Like this one time where Payton and cole were on opposite teams and they were confusing both teams. In Ultimate Frisbee I showed communication by communicating with my team and making strategies with them. Like this one time we’re we just chucked the frisbee across constantly and it somehow worked.

    I would like to take this forward into out-of-school activities like trapshooting and basketball. Something that I would change about my participation is I would get better at changing sides of the gym because a lot of the time it was on one side of the gym. In class I use participation by doing class work with my peers and listening to the teachers

Sample Post – Creative Repurposing

In my 8th grade FACS class, I had the opportunity to help make the world a better place by upcycling items that might have ended up in our landfills.   Instead, I was able to upcycle pallet boards into a beautiful new table.  My team and I spent a lot of time determining what color we would have the table.  My dad, helped us put it together.  We had some challenges with the staining and had to redo a section because it go too tacky. We needed a smooth finish.  We also wanted to stage the table so that it would look nice and we would market it to potential buyers.

Below is a video of our journey.  Throughout this process, we hit a number of the POG C’s.  We had to collaborate together to build, stain, and stage a table that was going to be sold to potential buyers.  We used communication skills to share and listen to each other’s ideas and determine our final product. We also had to use communication skills to showcase our piece to an audience.  We enjoyed the opportunity to be creative and have a choice in what we would produce and our ideas would be seen and potentially bought by people in the real world.  We had challenges along the way and had to think critically on how to resolve those challenges.  And finally, I believe the artifact below showcases an element of citizenship – as we are trying to repurpose items and keep them out of our landfill.
