What is the biggest challenge you faced during the process of Exhibition?
The biggest challenge in exhibition was finding kid friendly websites for research. This was challenging because it was not only hard to answer our questions in the first place but it made it harder when they used fancy words we didn’t know the meaning of. Every time this happened we would have to google it in the dictionary or just use a different website that didn’t have the information we needed.
How did you work to solve or overcome that challenge?
We overcame this searching the word up in a child dictionary so that we could understand the words. This did help us get more information rather then just leaving the site and getting information that would connect instead of answer to our questions.
What have you learned about yourself since being involved in Exhibition?
I have learned to deal with problems better with other people When somthing goes wrong. I used to hate working in groups because when a problem occurred we would all just lose it and now that I worked in a group it helped me deal with problems better by using my self management skills and my social skills.
What was the most important, interesting or meaningful aspect of Exhibition for you? Why?
The most important part of exhibition for me was reflecting this was important to me because I could always just look back and remember the things I need to work on like skills Some tasks maybe etc.
What would you do differently, or be more mindful of if you could experience Exhibition again?
Something I would do different is probably pick up the pace we were kind of off task and that was when we had to rush and we just could not get enough done. I would also put more thinking into my creative project for example I would think to myself what would attract people.
What advice and suggestions would you like to give to the students who will work through Exhibition next year?
for all grade 4 students coming into grade 5 I would say stay on task or else you will get nothing done. And maybe make sure you don’t fight and have a good relationship with your group so that you will work better and not waste time fighting.
I chose this one because it applies directly to our group and it makes me feel good to know that people liked our presentation.
i chose this one because we did study a lot and it’s good that people got there answers and that all that research paid off.
This one isn’t directed to wards our group but I thought that I need to do more because I felt like my parter did all of the talking So I felt I needed to say more.
Explain who you interviewed and why you chose to interview them.
We interviewed a lady from JB music her name was Lisa. JB music is a music therapy organization here in Calgary she answered a lot of our questions not to mention she was really nice about the questions we asked.
What was it like to interview people?
Interviewing Lisa whent really good we were nervous I would accidentally say somthing….unprofessional like regular words we use to talk to our friends . We did stay polite and I was having a really hard time understanding Lisa I don’t know why but I just couldn’t get what she was talking about.
What was challenging about it?
For interviewing people I would say thinking of questions to ask them and actually asking them. This was hard because you can’t just use like street words like what’s up with these people you have to be very specific and polit as well as professional.
Why is it so important to interview people?
It is important so you can get loads of information from the experts. Also have more to offer in your presentation.
What did you gain from interviewing people?
We gained more knowledge and more research so our presentation would be better and if someone asks us a question we will know the answer right away or soon.
I am proud of our research because we could not find ant good websites that would directly answer our questions. I am also proud of finishing exhibition because a lot of our ideas got knocked down but we managed to keep on thinking!
Give an update on what your action is? What are your plans for showcasing your work?
Are action is going to be playing music over the speakers/intercom. The reason we chose this is because we find that people are most hyper after LUNCH recess so we will play some music with out words because if there are words people will tend to sing along so we chose some insteremantal music. Our plan for showcasing our work is at the end of the week after the music we will make a google survey to all the classes to see if it helped or not when we get the results we will screenshot them and make a short iMovie.
What has been the biggest struggle so far in exhibition? How did you overcome it what skills/attitude did you use?
The biggest struggle for me was finding websites that were kid friendly and that had very clear and easy explanations. This was hard because a lot of the websites had very fancy words and we couldn’t understand them. I didn’t really use any skills to over come this but I guess I just tried my hardest and whent throgh the all of the websites that were kid friendly and made sure I didn’t miss anything.
what did you find out about yourself during exhibition?
I found out that I don’t always work best in groups and I need a lot of breaks to be able to cooperate with my group. Also that If I work alone I will figure stuff out I’ll just have a hard time dealing with things on my own.
Why should people come see your exhibition?
People should come see our exhibition Center because your metal health is important and music can change your mood and actually be a big part of health depending on what angle you look from.
What discoveries Have I made?
This week I learned that all music is connected to your brain and it creates a spark that makes you think and sing along. I also learned that music therapy is not only for people who are sick in a way anyone can use music therapy even if they don’t have a illness. It all makes sense that it connects to the brain but Do people who have brain problems and are ill get to use music therapy too?
How do I feel things are going?
I feel things are very good we are ahead of where we are supposed to be we have answered all of our questions and we have planned our action(S). Our mentor said that we may start thinking about our art peace but we can’t start our art project.
What do I need to do next?
next we need to work on our action and do our art peace. Our action is school wide and it will only be open for 1 day. We have only made our brain for our art peace
what Was challenging about the process?
somthing that was challenging during the interview was that We were very nervous we also didn’t want to say anything rude or somthing that didn’t make sense because we didn’t want her to be like “ what just happened?”.
What TD skills did I use?
I think I used my social skills by Taking breaks from each other and not making a argument. We both know when we need breaks so we take them come back to working together and we are fresh and ready.
What does exhibition inspire you to do?
exhibition inspires me by pushing me to work and take risks and chances that you never know will work. Also it inspires me to be interested in multiple things like in music therapy it includes learning about the brain,body and physical activity with music.
Give an update of your week did you do a interview did you decide your action?
I did an interview with JB music she is a music therapist that lives in Calgary. She answered A lot of questions and gave us A lot of information. We have not really put any thought into our action we have been so busy with our questions and research we never thought bout it.
