I had a great time working on the exhibition, even though it was tiring at times! But now that it is over, it is time to write a reflection!
I think one thing my group did well during the exhibition was being able to get people interested in our subject. We always answered people's questions, and got them interested by getting them to learn more about our problem, and action. I think we were also good at explaining to people about our action. Our action was to put our group's logo on the bins in the school, and we had a bin with our logo on it, so it was easy to explain.
Here is a photo of Daksha and I getting people interested in our group.
I think one thing I did well as an individual was getting people to play our game. When I was a guide, I asked the little kids if they wanted to play our game, and helped them with the answers to the questions. I also made sure that not too many people came to our stand, because then kids got upset that they could not all play the game. Phoebe also told kids about the game, and brought them over to our stand.
Here is a photo of me helping some K5 kids play our game.
One thing I think I could have done better on was telling people about the information we found out. I mostly talked about our action, and I think I could have explained a bit more about our information that we found out. If I was to do another big project like this, that is what I would work on.
Here is a person from the pink dolphins group talking to a person visiting their stand.
Here is the rubric I made and marked myself.
Hi people! Have you been wondering how the exhibition has been going so far? Read on to find out....
I am going to answer some questions that Andy assigned for us to answer. The first question is, "what have you done for your exhibition group so far?" We have been doing many things, but the latest thing we have done is start to put our logos on the bins in the school. We are about halfway. We have also been working hard to merge our concept questions together, for the real exhibition.
Next question.... "what do you still have to do?" Today Daksha and I started designing a game that we will let people play on the day of the exhibition. We plan to get together on Friday afternoon, and add the finishing touches to it (we are doing most of our work at school.) We also have to make a slide show to show to the people coming to the exhibition.
The next question is, "do you have any concerns about the exhibition?" I have to say, the only thing I am really concerned about is time. We currently only have 4 days in school to get everything sorted, and I am a bit worried about that!
Next question, "is there any area of the exhibition that you are really proud of?" For meI am really proud of the fact that we have started to put the logos around the bins in the school. I thought it would take much more organizing, and we got it done so quickly. That is what I am really proud of.
And the last question, "what will somebody learn when they come to your presentation next week?" They will learn about the process in putting the logos on the bins in the school. They will learn all the steps, and thing we had to do.
Here is a video that Andy made with some of the photos from this week.
Today in class we were asked to think of our two main things that we wanted to do for the exhibition. My top choice is water shortage. I chose this because that is a subject that means a lot to me, because I come from Australia, where there has been a drought for quite a while.
My second choice is gender equality. I chose this because I know quite a lot about this subject, and also because this is a subject that I genuinely care about. I really can't decide out of the two subjects though!
Today in UOI, I was a scribe. Here are the notes that I took.

March 2nd

Work on yellow sheets

Sort into two categories - SMART, not SMART

Split into groups of 1, 2

Talk about SMART

See which things need writing about

A lot of things were not SMART

Determined if it was not SMART: not realistic, unfinished, not specific, 1, 2 words

Al together, decide what's SMART, what's not SMART

Who wants to make it SMART

Start to make a small decision for what you want to do

Split into 4 groups (9 people), go through, are they SMART or not

Not move many things to SMART

Not many things changed

On projector, highlighted what's SMART, and what's not SMART

Groups stood up, and told the class what was on their posters

The things on the board that were highlighted in green, were not SMART, not going to use

Discuss if we should keep any things

Gave reasons why we should keep the idea

Picked top 3 things we may want to do (if we had to pick right now)

Voted to see which things should sty, and which things should be eliminated

A lot of things were deleted, water pollution was very popular

We came up with new things that were not already on the board, that we wanted to be there

Have two days to find our top two for Thursday
