I think one thing that went well was the way we had explained to the people how we could improve the problem and whats going to happen if we don’t do something about it.

Some of our difficulties were some people in our group only wanted to do their own ideas and not really listen the others ideas and we didn’t work well.But we got a long after a while.

I learnt that I should do a bit more researching because i didn’t do much. But during the presentation time I did quite a bit of work.

Now i will use more of the BTS and walk to some close place the I can walk to.

I learnt that sometimes working in a group is worse because not everything goes your way all the time. But on the other side it’s better because not all the work is on you so it’s split up and it’s a lot easier for you.

Today saw Chanin’s groups project about illegal pet trade.

Star 1. Chanin had brought a iguana to the exhibition so it showed some endangered species and what they sell in the in the illegal trade.

Star 2. Chanin’s group had got a game to teach people about the illegal pet trade of endangered animals.

Wish. I think the iguana was a bad idea showing it all the time because I think some people only came to see the iguana. I think they should have covered up the iguana and when people finished listening they could see it like what we did with our group. We had a traffic game to play but they could only play when the finished listening to us.

The sencond one is Ryoga’s project and it’s about endangered marine life

Star 1 Ryoga’s information was very intresting

Star 2 When i heard Ryoga presentate he was very confident and I could tell he new what he was going
to say

Whish I think he should got more accurate information because he said 190 sharks die a minute so around about 3 sharks die a sencond. Well I’m not sure thats realy correct but it could be it don’t really know.

The progress in my presentation is going really well as we already started sticking the economy, nature, society and well-being things on but we need more pictures. The inside is going to much harder and it will take us lots of time so we also have to start managing our time well.

We have achieved sticking what we are going to talk about and the road scene. We will now start putting the other things like some trees, pollution and the other things we were supposed to put.

Ms. Dawn and Mr. Chris have helped us already. The ideas given by Ms. Dawn are really good but they are extremely hard to work on. So our group is thinking of considering only some of the ideas.

The things that have caused us difficulty are that first we weren’t able to decide that do we want to make it 2D or 3D. Then our group argued a lot on small things. Sometimes the whole group went to check a room or for card boards. Our group shouldn’t have done that but only 2 people should have gone.

My plans for the next few days is to finish the second box. If we will have more time then we will make something like a video, prezi or something.

My group needs help with the second box as we are going to start that soon. But I think my group can sort that out ourselves.

The progress of our presentation is going well because we have started to stick information and pictures on the box and put some cars to make it look like a traffic jam inside of the box. Tomorrow I think we should finish the first box and move on the the second one.

So far we have achieved quite a bit because we nearly have finished the first diorama.

Well, Mr Chris and Ms Dawn have helped us in our presentation by giving us ideas on how we could improve our diorama. Ms Dawn had given us lots of information about the water boat and how they reduce traffic. Ms Dawn also gave us her opinion about water boats and how it was efficient in transporting large number of people.

Some problems we had was that we didn’t have enough time to cut the box and display the traffic so we were all in a rush today and sometimes we all didn’t really concentrate much so we weren’t very productive.

My plans for the next few days is to finish off the first diorama and start the second one by Monday. Quicker would be better by concentrating more on time management.

Today I learnt that the water boats are a good and quick transport but people don’t use it as it does not match their status and it is really dangerous. I also learnt that even though tuk-tuk is a good transport many people don’t use it as it more expensive than taxis. Only the tourists use the tuk-tuk. I learnt that the traffic problem in Bangkok is also because of shortage of roads. Only 8% of Bangkok is covered with roads compared to 20% in Tokyo.

I also learnt that more people are buying sport-utility cars which require more fuel and cause more pollution. I learnt that the locals who walk wear masks to protect themselves from the pollution. But other people say that the mask is not protective as the harmful gases can go through the mask.

Today I finished my A3 paper’s economy part. I already finished the others. I am researching at home too.

My sources were internet. I think I should use different resources such as books.

My plans for the next few days is to find more information, do 2-3 more interviews and by then I think it will be presenting time so we will start getting ready.

Today i learned that the water boat is a good way to travel to places because it’s very fast. The reason that some people don’t use the boat is that it is dirty and the seats are uncomfortable.
I learned that people should use buses instead of cars because 20 people can fit in one bus so it will take away 20 cars. If more people use it then traffic won’t be a big issue anymore.

Well today i didn’t really achieve much today because I was working on my A3 sheet of paper and that took me a while and I’m still not done with it yet.

My sources was the internet. My primary source is taking to people who take the boat, walk and bike. We haven’t really gone to ask those people yet but we have planed to.

My plan for the next few days are to go ask the people that take the boat, walk and bike some questions about how bad is the traffic and stuff like that.

Today my question is What has the government done to decrease traffic in Bankok.

What I learned?

I learnt that traffic can be stopped using these alternatives

1)BTS
2)Metro
3)Water Boats
4)Walking
5)Bus

I also learnt that the average citizen of Bangkok spends 6 hours a day in traffic. I also learnt that the traffic problem in Bangkok is because of people having more cars than they need and shortage of roads. There also have to be more lines for the metro. I also learnt that people don’t use public transport as they say it doesn’t match their status. I learnt that we have to work harder as time is running out.

What I achieved today?

Today I found tons of information about my issue. I still need lots more so I can fill the compass paper. We are searching deeper into our issue.

My sources

1) Internet
2) Interviews

My plans for the next few days are to fill the compass sheet and to find lots more information. Once we find enough information we will have to think of how to display it. I have got many ideas about how to display my information.

Today I learned traffic is a big issue in Thailand but mostly in Bangkok. It makes people late for work and other stuff and also today I learned a bit about economy from Mr. Adrian.

Today I achieved with my group getting 6 main questions that will use to research.

My question is How does the Bangkok police control the traffic?

My sources was

The internet
Ms. Sue’s websites
Books

Now my plans are to start researching a lot more because we don’t have that much time left and because we finished most of the paper work stuff.

Mr.Turtle

My turtle is small,

so it went to the mall.

 He brought a fish,

and a made a wish.

 The turtle was grumpy,

so he went to hungry.

 He ate a small  gum,

and had lots of fun!

 The turtle had lots of guts,

so he made a big hut. 

 He went to have a leep,

and went to sleep.

 All alone in the darkness there was that checky little turtle.

My favourite character is Elya Yelnats because whenever something goes wrong in the family they allways blame him and also because he’s very funny.

My favourite part in the book is when Stanley carries Zero up the mountain because it’s a little cool because it would be very hard to carry a person up a mountain.
