Our new unit in U.O.I is governace, there a monachy, anarchy, dictatorship... and our class made our own goverment with Benjamin as president and Azediwa as vice president. After that was decided, we reasearched about our role and shared them with the whole class. I (sadly) am not a minister, so I reasearched about the role of a citizen.
Here are the ministers:

The goverment will last all unit.

Maker Day 2017

Today is maker day! But grade 5 went into their power source group (I'm in hydro) and start working on creating their model to present on shark tank, someone started a conversation about which power source is going to win, it's really annoying because I'm getting a lot of notification on my email. My group built a water turbine, there was a few problems with our water turbine:
We first built it with wooden spoons, a motor, cardboard, light bulb, hot glue, and sticky tape. But when we test it, it ended up being wet and soggy, the motor and the cardboard fell off because the motor was stuck in place by sticky tape, and the cardboard was not waterproof, the light bulb on the end didn't light up, the teacher said it's because the water was not strong enough. My group had to change the cardboard to wood, the process was quite hard because we had to peel the cardboard off and it's stuck in place by hot glue. I got burned by the hot glue gun when I was sticking on the wood, but we fixed it at last. 

My group didn't have time to test our new water turbine, we were waiting for the hot glue to dry when my teacher told us to tidy up. Minh (a person in my group) still wanted to test it out even when the teacher told us to tidy up. Building this model was very fun, but I would still want to have the normal maker day other people in other grades are having, and next time I would be more focused and careful when I'm building it so I won't burn myself with the hot glue gun, and I would try to build it faster so I'll have time to test it.

Identity Poem

My name is Yuyao,
I come from China.
I love to read and write,
I dislike dark places.

I am sometimes shy,
but I'm kind and caring.
I could easily get mad,
when you start to get annoying.

I think learning is important,
but I think playing is not.
I always belive in gods,
but I don't have a religion.

I am quite musical,
and I can play the flute.
I like singing a lot,
but I don't sing in public.

I like music and art,
but I hate boring stuff.
I want my work to be neat,
and that's my identity.


We had a unit about human migration, and I'm going to show you some push and pull factors: the push factors makes people leave their country, and they are poverty, war, crime, no freedom, sad life, no family... the pull factors makes people want to come to a country, and they are safety, freedom, family or friends, good weather...
This is our central idea: human migration affects communities, cultures, and individuals.
We each chose a migrant, and we need to pretend to be him/her. We reaserched about him/her, and we need to write down their story. After we wrote down their story, we double-check to make sure there is no mistake, and we memorize the story.
On the day we present, we first listen to 5C and 5B, then we get our background (if we need them) and present.
We also made a Flipgrid to practice our speech, and this is my Flipgrid:
