My PYP Exhibition Reflection


The Exhibition was two days long. Both of those exhibition days was very tiring. Each day took the whole school time. Some days it was 2 presentations and sometimes there were 3.
The first day began. It was the beginning of the two-day exhibition. I had 3 presentations to do today. One of them was the display.
Before we started the exhibition we made display boards; one for each group.
The display boards were made for showing other people about what we’ve learnt, what our goals were and what the groups’ focus is. We had 2 days to prepare for the displays. We had to present the displays on each day of the exhibition.
There was also Gaudi’s presentation that needed the whole group. We showed Gaudi’s presentation in the dance studio. Gaudi showed a movie that he made about the turtle hatchery and our trip there. We also had to explain the group focus and our personal focus one by one. We had to present this in front of our friends, families, teachers and others.
The other presentation was my quiz show that I made. I invited people to play my quiz on the smart board. A Smart board is a tool that is a touch screen. The function of the smart board is to control the computer or laptop by your fingertips by tapping on the board. I made this quiz about mining, companies and the mining company Newmont.
I think I was a good communicator because I needed to speak loudly and clearly for the audience to understand what I was saying.
The second day started. I needed only to do 2 presentations. Today the grade 4, 6, 7 and also Ibu Indah cam to see the exhibition.
The first one was the displays. Just like on the first day. This time other people had to leave comments about the display. The second day I received more question about the turtle hatchery. It was a lot of questions, but I managed to answer mostly all of them.
This time my quiz was presented in the dance studio. My presentation was turned into a game of ‘Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader’. My quiz was the last presentation. After we were done. Our teacher gave us some ‘Pocari Sweat’ and ice chocolate.
I learned that I also needed to be balanced in my quiz. You need to balanced the quantity and the quality of what you will present.
This exhibition was very tiring, we had to do a lot, but finally the exhibition was successful. I learned a lot thanks to my exhibition.

My Spore

In Grade 5, Mrs. T introduce us to a good new exciting program. It is called Spore and it is really fun . You have to design a Spore (a virtual creator) then you can make it fight, sing, call, bite and use other fun incredible abilities. You can also change the color. You can make the color of the monster red, blue, stripes, polka dots or other colors, actually it's like a chameleon. I really enjoyed making a Spore. You need to be creative but most of all you need to have fun.   

Leaner Profile

I think I was open minded because I was really creative in creating and designing the spore. I enjoyed making the spore very much.

Science Expo

I thing the project will work because right now there is strong magnet to complete this project. I think the guy who made this idea was very smart. He tried to make it without anyones help. I think he is very smart because he took the time to measure his work and to wrap the string a hundred times. If he is willing to make the turbine from scratch only one word can describe him. It is 'Dedicated' he spend all his time to share his knowledge to the world. He is Dedicated. That is why I think that this project will work.
