PASSION PROJECT #UPDATE POST
What I have done is painted 2 white wash coats on the outside of the dolls house. I have also started the top level which is the Living Room, Kitchen and Dining room in a It now has wallpaper and a copper coloured contact on the outside roof. I have started to sort out the dolls house furniture into 3 piles then into 5 piles.
The 3 piles are:
Bin For dolls house Keep but not for dolls house
Then into 5 piles, which are:
Kitchen Bathroom Living Room Dining room
Next, I would like to finish the top level and start the other rooms by putting up wallpaper, painting furniture and making it look like a good miniature home for dolls.
P.S. I will then add dolls and use blue tack to stick the furniture down so that when I take it to school, it won’t fall apart.
This is my VIDEO BLOG for Mr Galluccio’s Clinic!
This is the script:
Space Location: Europa, Jupiter’s moon
Space Environment: Ocean Based
•I chose Europa because it has an ice surface and it has twice as much water than earth’s oceans underneath the ice. We could live on it because it has a very thin oxygen atmosphere. It also has gravity which we are used to on earth.
•I chose to have my building underwater because the whole planet is covered in ice and underneath that is water. My building will have everything a good house would have, a bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room, living room and of course a bedroom. On the outside it will have hard stainless steel walls and a roof(both would need to be waterproofed).
The movie is about different people acting out some scenarios based on real people, but they are just acting so they dot reveal who the actual people are. The kids get addicted to their devices but some of them are talking to people who are older/they don’t know who they are.
The problem that occurred was Kieran was addicted was addicted to his gaming and over a couple of years he got worse. Some of the main things we need to do he didn’t do, such as cleaning himself, brushing his teeth, eating, and being unhealthy in general.
It negatively affected his life by affecting his health such as eating, cleaning himself, dropped out of school, lost his friends and stopped brushing his teeth.
The issue got resolved by him joining a group to get help and stopped being addicted to his gaming and he gained friends, started being healthier physically and more started eating better.
He could have stopped using his device and if that wasn’t achievable then he could have asked for help about it sooner. Because he asked for help later, he dropped out of school BEFORE he asked so if he asked SOONER then he probably wouldn’t have dropped out of school. He should have focused on the more important things in life (than video games) such as eating, excising, hanging out with friends and keeping his body healthy.
A message I took away from it was to not get addicted to games and to be more active with friends. Also to focus on the more important things in life that I mentioned in the previous paragraph.
My idea for my passion project is:
I have a wooden dolls house from my Great Auntie and I am going to use materials and dolls furniture to make it better to ‘play’ with. The style of house it will be is vintage industrial so that’s modern and touches of old.
In case you don’t know what industrial is……. it’s when the raw building materials are exposed and use of lots of timber and metal.
I will bring in my final product(with the help of my dad) and I will make a film about how I made it and what I learnt.
Here is an image of a vintage industrial house:
P.S. it finally pays off to have watched Deadline Design with Shaynna Blaze, Selling Houses Australia, Buying Blind, House Rules, The block and Grand Designs(+ more) 🙂
In DC we talked about some images and we discussed what was funny and why. Its important to look at what is bad and why as well. In all of the images there is humour for example, a dude with a bald head. There was one this common in all three and that was they were addicted to their technology.
I don’t think there is anything that’s funny with this image because its pretty serious and nothing with how the artist did it was funny.
I think the message is that you should put your outdoor activity’s and socialising with friends before your technology and don’t make someone miserable because your on your device. This is an important message because its really important to get out and do physical activity and play with your friends.
I still think that its serious and I don’t find it funny at all now that I have analysed it.
My finished product was sort of what I planned except I didn’t end up making the painted tin with the milk powder in it because I thought it didn’t suit what I was making. Apart from that, I got the poster with the facts, photos and info. I also painted the milk bottle and wrote the measurements of the milk portions on the side.
The only challenge I had toward the end was finding a way to put the ear tag onto the poster but in the end, I used the actual ear tagger and put it on so that you can see both sides of it.
If I was to continue this project I would actually put the milk powder and water in the bottle so that it looks real and I would add more ‘detailed’ information. Overall I thought I did a really good job and my poster looks more professional because my mum thought of putting different coloured pieces of paper behind the text.
Here are a few images of my process:
How To Play:
Win at the fair is a maths game. You roll two dice and whatever the numbers add up to, you either move left, right or straight ahead. Your goal is to get a $5 at the most. The money is not real. Once you get to the amount of money, then the game is over.
Here is the original game board:
We played 117 games and then we tallied up the amount of times someone landed on a 20c, 50c, $1, $2, $3, $4 or $5 to see how much money the operator gets and how much they lose because the amount of money to pay to play the game is $1. We did 117 games and in that as the operator we won $96.40 but lost $113.40. Here is our class data.
From the maths 300 I didn’t really know what we were doing because I was away so my friends showed me how to work it and it is a hard but fun game we had to add in our game and all the prizes then we entered 1000 games into the computer and it showed us how many times the people who played landed on and you should have got a profit of 300 was your goal and I think we got really close to that or a bit over. Our first attempt wasn’t very successful because we made a profit of $489. It was ok but every time we improved and we took out 1 of the 0 because people wouldn’t of want to play because you won’t win lots of money.
My Creative board included 2 black holes, 4 teleport’s and for the money I have $1 at the top, 2x $3 at the sides, 2x $5 on the bottom right.
Here is my Creative Game Board:
I wasn’t at school when we did the maths 300 process so I didn’t do the changes to the board. I also don’t know what how we made the board profitable and enticing for the audience.
What does Think stand for as an acronym?
Is it: True because you could be saying something about you that is not true for example you could live in Australia but say you live in America.
Is it: Helpful because it could be saying something that is irrelevant and not worth talking about.
Is it: Inspiring because you could be posting/sending something that is something not many people want to see and it will come up (for example facebook) on your feed.
Is it: Necessary because it could be boring for your reader/person who is receiving the text message/photo.
Is it: Kind because someone could get hurt badly and feel really bad about themselves.
I have started my story page which has who he is, what happened to his mother, what type of sheep he is and how we bottle fed him.
I have painted the bottle white with 2 coats to make it fully white.
I am going to finish my story page and make my poster.
Rodney The Lamb:
I am going to decorate and perfect a bottle in memory of Rodney. Who is Rodney? Rodney is the son of a mum that had mastitis and couldn’t feed milk to Rodney. We bottle fed him in the shed and when he knew who his mum was we got to bottle feed him inside, where he slept some nights.
I am going to decorate it and write his story on the side. I will also add a thin layer of paint on the inside to look like there is milk on the inside. There will also be a milo tin painted and decorated to make a milk powder tin. I will add flour inside it to make it realistic. I will also make a measuring cup to show how much we gave him.
