Girls are more mature than boys…..

I agree with this statement and at the same time I don’t because in the world there are some boys that are mature and the are some girls that are not as mature as boys. It depends on how the person is to decide whether this person is mature or not.

Boys should know about boys bodies and girls should know about girls…..

I think both of the genders should know about each others bodies because once we learn about the bodies, it might help us in the future such as if you want to be a doctor, it is important to know about the bodies of a male’s and a female’s so you know what to do.

Families are not that important, who needs them…..?

I disagree with this because everyone needs to have a family because we learn from our families and when we make mistakes, our family is there to help us and tell us what is wrong and what is right.

Exhibition

May 10, 2010

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

I think the thing that went really well for me during my exhibition was that when we were presenting, the audience was listening and from the look on their faces, it looked like they were pretty impressed and fascinated in our presentation topic. One visitor even said that the topic we chose was very good.

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

One difficulty that we had was when we were first presenting for the first few people, we were not peaking loud enough and it looked like they were having a little hard time hearing us speak because of all the other noises people were making. This tells we needed to speak a little louder.

What have you learned about yourself?

I learnt that sometimes when I am too excited or scared about something, I will mess it up so I need to be a little more confident whenever I do a presentation.

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

One of the big ideas I took away from the exhibition is that we should help those who are suffering from poverty because it is unfair that only some people in the world have access to human needs and the other people don’t have the access. If we will make a difference to those who are suffering from poverty, we are called as the caring people in this world and there are only a few so make the few into everyone. Help poverty and make a difference!!!

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

To move forward with my learning, I will try and do many more presentations like this and try and make improvements form the last presentations that I did. To live with the future in mind, I will think big, not small in order to think about the future and also live with it.

What have you learned about group work?

About group working one thing that I learnt is that you defiantly never always get to have it the way you like and if you be bossy, fights happen. This is from my experience during the exhibition.

Who was helped you and how (if anyone)

So far, Mari’s mom, Ms. Kate and Mr. Adrian have helped us a lot by giving us information and told us examples of different things that are related to our topic such as their experiences of when they’ve seen poverty and how they helped the poor people.

Things that have caused you difficulty (if any)

The only thing that has caused me difficulty is that being on time for appointments made because at the same time we need to handle completing other tasks for our exhibition. Over all we used our time pretty well.
