What Culture are you?

This week Me and Nickela have created a graph shows have how many people are a culture. The highest was Maori which got 7. Something that I like about the Maori is the dances because the matreails are different form what other country's use to dance with. The lowest was Japanese and Fiji. What I like about Japan is there sushi it it really nice. Doing this activity made me feel amazed because I got to find out peoples cultures that I never knew.

Steampunk Art

This week we are experience steampunk. I have drawing an steampunk owl with pencil and also have made a digital version. I have also written a Definition. Steampunk means mixing different machinery with modern this. Steampunk is a type of Science fiction that was used in the century. Steampunk is a art that includes Machinery. Steampunk is often found in historical village. 

I have also made a DLO about victorian. Me and Avalon experience about wash day. Wash Day Monday in Victorian times was really hard for women as it took nearly a day depending on the amount of clothes that needed to be cleaned. Ironing was mostly the compact part of making the clothing straight. You needed to get and iron that was fully made of Cast Iron and heat it over a fire ,once it gets hot you can then lay it on your clothes and move the iron everywhere on the Clothing. It was very heavy and hard to operate. This was used in the the late 19th century. A Dolly tub and peg was also used to clean clothing. What you needed to do was twist the peg so that the clothing in the Dolly Tub would mix with the soap that was added. Soap was not bought at stores as they needed to make it. Soap are made out of lye, fats and oil and were grated into the water to help clean the clothes. On washing day they ate leftovers because washing took a very long time and there was no time to make food.

Leadship challenges

This week is the leadership week for the year 7's. Leadership week is when the year 7's gather together to develop their leadership skills. Yesterday we all got into groups and we started completing different challenges together. Throughout these challenges we were communicating, collaborating, and showing team work. Our first task was a given question that needed to be answered by our groups. The question was how can you motivate others to drink water. It was challenging, because we weren't allowed to talk during this challenge. Our team's idea was to create an animation based on kids drinking water. We also discussed about the word teamwork. Teamwork to us means a group of people coming together to share new ideas and agree on each others opinions. After this we headed to the hall to complete another challenge. For this challenge we were to create the largest pyramid by using isometric diamonds. We worked as a group by discussing what each person was to do during this challenge. Angela and I were tracing around the template, while Jonathan and Julian were cutting it out and placing it on the piece of paper. As a result Alex's group won for this challenge. Lastly we were to find another group to work with. This time we were to gather our shapes together and build the largest pyramid. This time we were allowed to talk. In my group I had Angela, Julian, Jonathan, Jack, Neveah, Avalon, Chavda, and myself. This meant that there were 2 groups with 8 people in it. Before starting this challenge we came together to discuss about what each person was going to do. Avalon, Angela, and Neveah were drawing, while Chavda and I were tracing the templates. Jack and Julian were placing it on, while Jonathan was collecting the isometric diamonds for the cutters. As a result our group won this challenge. Were all enjoyed our time, but at the end of the day everyone are winners.
