Civilization reflection

Hey guys this is my reflection about my social studies. Get a snack and juice and sit down to read this.

For my social studies project, I researched and told my classmates how to start a civilization. First, they needed to know where to live and what to do in order to survive.

First, I researched how old civilizations survived. My strength was that I had some good resources. I had Britanica encyclopedia and Brain POP. I learned a lot about the Aztecs, the Egyptians, the Sumerians, Japanese, and the Chinese. I think I researched well because it was easy to give examples from history. I need to work on having one or two examples from two or more civilizations. On this project, when I did economy, I only had two examples from one civilization.

Second, I sketched what I wanted my presentation to look like. When I wrote my script, I felt I had a lot of information. When I was done one cultural universe, I imagined what the slide would look like. However, I didn’t make the slides until after I finished the script. Next time I think it would be better if I made the slide when I am working on the script because I had some pictures that had nothing to do with some slides.

Then I had to create my keynote. It was hard for me to find pictures on the Internet. I found a lot of pictures, but not all the pictures worked. I had to also remember that nomads idea of Techology is the wheel when my idea for Techology is an iPad. It was really hard memorizing all the words I wanted to say, but I learned a trick that you can take notes and see it when the audience only sees the slide. Next time I need to practice my presentation more so that I am fully prepared.

My classmates gave feedback. The four things they scored were: loud and clear, speed of presentation, design, and did it make sense. A 4 is exemplary, 3 is proficient, 2 is for approaching or ok, 1 is Concern or bad. I know I was loud and clear, but at the beginning I was a little quiet. I had a good pace, not too fast but a little slow. I thought I made a lot of sense throughout my presentation.

Design was my biggest problem in the feedback. My Techology and leisure didn’t transition very well into economy. I also had a picture with an iPad which had nothing to do with my presentation. Also, I had many 2s for my feedback. Next time I present, I will make sure I have good design. Maybe I should practice my presentation more so I won’t be nervous. I also should ask people to help me in design so I could get better grades. I could also ask the some of my friends if it makes sense.

was a book by Sharon Creek. The book is about two orphaned twins that want to escape to a train. Two parents take them one day and they get ready for vacation. The man who was taking care of them wanted to find the parents money, so he hires the two orphans father! The parent’s plan didn’t work out and he had to stay raising kids. I wrote my character traits. Here they are.
