Project Jubilee has been really fun lately. We have done Shakespear, optical illusions, and weaving!!! We are going on a field trip to see Shakespear’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Trojan Hall next week. Today, we finished up our coat of arms, worked on some optical illusions, and talked about Shakespear. We hope Mrs.Heald will allow us to start up class dojo again. For those who don’t remeber class dojo, it is everyone has a little avatar that looks like a monster. From then on Mrs.Heald can give our little monsters points for good behavior or, she could deduct points for negative behavior. Also, we are doing little projects with a different topic for each person. My topic is Leis Ericson and the war of the roses. We are allowed to show our facts with a video or a audio podcast. I think I will get a LiveBinder to store my information. We could also get a Prezi but, I prefer a LiveBinder. That’s all I have to say today!! Bye!!!!
Last week in project jubilee we learned about Australia. We are going to do a presentation on a subject about Australia, like The Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, Kangaroos, etc. I’m doing mine on Sydney. We also did our other project which we will do on podcasts. A podcast is like a presentation but you don’t see anything you hear about the subject. It is on medieval times like knights, guilds, castles, or important people during that time. We are also about to start CSI. It is crime solving on the crime scene. We have tried logic puzzles just like we will do when we start.

Students were asked to interview a family member or friend who grew up in another generation. The goal was to find out what rock and roll music was like from previous years. Although we brainstormed what makes a good question and listed sample questions, they had the freedom to ask questions of their own choosing. Students made notes during their interview. When they returned to class the next week, they recorded the interview with an MP3 player. Mrs. Heald loaded the audio file to the network drive so that students could access their file in the computer lab. Using the free audio editing software called Audacity, students edited their file then saved it in a different format more compatible to posting then downloading by others. Enjoy our first podcasts ever!
