Today we had scientists in the school. We had Dana as our host for what we were doing. We made dissolved flour, Epsom salt, and baking soda in the water. I thought it was really cool how the flour, baking soda, and the Epsom salt all had different effects on the water. For starters, the flour was the only solid no to dissolve in water well the other two solids did not dissolve in water. Secondly, baking soda was the only solid to form a ring at the top of the water. We also mixed baking soda and vitamin c in cabbage water and it made a big explosion. It was really cool! even though we were online it still felt the same as if we would be in school. I thought it would be different and not as fun but frankly, it was the same actually even better. It was very different but it was really fun because we got to try something new. I experienced a lot of different things with scientists in the school we got to see things fizz and change colors overall it was a very fun day and I learned a lot of different things. When we poured the Epsom salt and vitamin c into the cabbage powder it started changing to red instead of purple. However, when we mixed the baking soda and vitamin c in the cabbage it started bubbling. I am looking forward to doing this next year.
Today we are doing an activity called two of the same. Just looking at my two paragraphs I know I did much better in my second paragraph than I did in my first paragraph. Three months ago I wrote a Mask paragraph I think I did a pretty good job because my introduction was good but everything else could use help. Now looking back I do not think I did not do that well. It was very short and didn’t have a lot of transition words and my paragraph had a few if not a lot of grammatical errors.
Last month we needed to write another paragraph this time on Minecraft education edition paragraph if you read my paragraph you would see I wrote a lot more. I had fewer grammatical errors. I think improved on my transition and conclusion sentence. paragraph I think I would be more independent instead of being more reliable on my friends.
Are you tired of the way education is being taught? Then you should put Minecraft in your thought?
First and foremost, there is so much gaming environment that is similar to how we are having work today. For example, kids are spending so much time online doing g-d knows what. What they should spend it on is doing something educational, like Minecraft Education Edition. In addition, you can interact with different kids around the world, for instance, you can connect and play with different people around the world. For all, I know you can maybe meet your long-lost sibling. However, I think Minecraft should not replace traditional teaching, and here is why. Traditional teaching has been going on for centuries, even decades. It is not fair for Minecraft to just take over like that. Minecraft is just a video game that was made 11 years ago in 2009 when teaching was created long before I was born. If kids go online all day then it will rot your brain and you have no control over what kids are doing. On the other hand, Minecraft Marketplace will be updated to offer a new education. For instance, Minecraft will be adding new games like, logic puzzle games to teach students how to code and think like programmers and a tower game that teaches students about power generation from different things like wind and nuclear. Minecraft allows the ability to collaborate and build projects and learn with your partner.In conclusion, I think Minecraft offers a lot of education that is useful for children, but I do not really think Minecraft can handle teaching on their own. I think Minecraft should be taught as an extracurricular activity. As suppose to replacing traditional teaching.
