Answers to our provocations

Girls are more mature then boys…..

I agree and disagree. In some parts of the world girls are mature the boys and in some parts of theworld girls are not mature then boys. Not every girl in this world is mature then boys. Every one has a different personality in the world, not every one can be same.

Boys only need to know about boy’s bodies and girls’ only need to know about girl’s bodies…..

I disagree because if your children comes and askes, ” Mommy what is this?” and you dont know it. So Girls and Boys should learn the girls bodies and the boys bodies too. So when some one askes you a question which is realted to human body, you can answer it. This statement might affect if you want to be a doctor. Becoming into a Doctor should know the girls body and the boys body. So if the girl/boy as a problem in their body. The doctor can understand what is it and can fix their problem.

Families are not important, who needs them……

I Strongly Disagree in this statement. Without a Family, how will you spend time with? Who will you eat with? How will help you when you need help? Who encourages you to go higher or in sports? Who puts a smile in your face and is there for you? The answer is a Family. Family is one of the best things to have in your life. Look at other kids who dont have a great family like you! Look at them cry. You really lucky to get a family. Everyone needs a family. But that impossible because, everyone is different. Not everyone will get a family. So be happy you got a family.

What did you feel went really well for you during your Exhibition?

I felt scared and worried because we had less time to get our stuff ready. At the last 2 weeks, I was getting worried that we have  nothing to show yet because we didn’t really have and information to show till that day. I even felt happy at the end of exhibition(showing day). I felt happy because EXHIBITION IS FINALLY OVER! but I had the most fun and funny parts at Exhibition.

What difficulties did you have and how did you deal with them?

We had one difficulty. The problem was that Sanjana went to London in the Songkran break, But over there the Volcano ash came out! So she was stuck there for One Week! So we weren’t sure if she would allow Vishuka and I to do work and choose what we are going to do. Over all when Sanjana came back she was Impressed with our work. So Vishuka and I manged to get some work done.

 What have you learned about yourself?

I learnt that I’m a fun person to work with and I take the work as important to me so, I don’t have to worry about it. I can some time be little mean.

What ‘big ideas did you take away from the Exhibition?

The Big idea was that STOP MAKING KIDS WORK  AND SPONSER A CHILD THAT NEED YOUR HELP! MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE FOR YOUR WORLD TO BE A BETTER WORLD.

How will you continue to move forward with your learning – what will you do to live with the future in mind?

When I grow up to be an Adult, I might do a TED talk to make people UNDERSTAND what happens every day to the families and kids who don’t have Basic Needs and Money like us. If I cant do this TED talk then when ever it comes to like choose your own topic and present your information. I will do the topic that I did for Exhibition. If I don’t feel like doing this topic then I will tell people to donate.

What have you learned about group work?

I have learnt that how to make a good group work not shouting or screaming or anything else which can cause a FIGHT!

Cyber Bullying – Kira, Erika, Georgina, Aries and Lily-

Good Things 🙂 :

Star *1- The video was cool and I could UnderStand the movie. I liked your idea to show a movie which talks about how it is like to be in Cyber bullied and it even shows what happens when u get caught!

 Star *2- I even Liked your Powerpoint which gave even more information! Your group wasnt shy at all. They were very brave to present in a large black room and some lights above and many people sitting down on the chairs.

Improvements 😦 :

The video was great but the video cammera was kind of shaking and in one of the scenes some one is talking and you cut it off and put some other video.

Amrita 🙂

Plastic- Nikki and Rosna Group-

Good Things 🙂 :

Star *1- Your Set up was great! I loved the painting cause it  shows that Thailand is wasting Plastic for no reason and throwing it where ever we want to throw.

Star *2- I like your idea to sell the bags for sale it was a good idea. So people instead of using the plastic bag and throwing it where ever we like. Overall it was a great idea!

Improvements 😦 :

The one thing was a problem was that no one was buying your big or blue bags that much because the Bag with words makes sence and people think it looks pretty. So for the pink and blue bag you could have put some words and you can make money and where is the money going??

The people who want to help can even donate money so they little kids could buy some food.
