What I did in UOI (Or just in my UOI notebook)

UOI stands for Unit Of Inquiry. In this blog post I will be telling you about everything I wrote in my UOI notebook.

Migration
At the start of the year, everyone in my class was asked to draw the map of the world from memory, or just your own version. My version was messed up: Russia about as big as Asia which is wrong, Iceland is missing, Canada is smaller that the US, Hawaii is meant to be smaller, Indonesia is right next to Africa, the UK is as big as Africa, New Zealand is too big and looks like an egg plant, Greenland is too small, and I spelt Papua New Guinea wrong, I spelt it Papa New Guini. Then I wrote about the push and pulls of countries and why it was good or bad to migrate or immigrate to or from those countries. Then we learnt about refugees and what they had to go through.

Electricity
At the start of this unit, grade 5 rotated around the different classes. In two of the classes, we were to make a green energy, healthy for the environment, thing. My group made a Dynamo Torch. A Dynamo Torch is a torch, but you need to keep pressing or pulling a button or rope for it to work. When you push or pull the button/rope, it creates friction, and if you get enough, it can make electricity which makes the torch work.

These are the only units I had in my notebook.

L'exposition PYP

Hi again! So, on Tuesday the 24th and Thursday the 26th is PYPX (Primary Years Program Exhibition). PYPX is where you choose a passion and an issue and then you create an action.
Passion + Issue = Action. My passion was writing, so that went under SDG 4 (Quality Education). My issue was lack of education and my action was writing a book, so I wrote a book with my group and it's called 'Exhibition'. Back to french class. Ok. In french class I made a poster about SDG 4 and it looks like this:



Thank you, thank you! My amazing art skills are truly amazing! What it says up the top is Education de qualité. Which means, Quality Education. This message this poster is giving is Elles aiment l'education de qualité pour tout le monde, which means, Girls, and boys, around the world should all have quality education.

PYPX

2 weeks ago we found out who was in our PYPX (Exhibition) groups. I am doing SDG 4, Quality Education.In my group are two girls, Emiri and Haruka. My passion is writing stories. On Tuesday we met with our mentor, Miss Kristin. We talked about what kind of people in this world don't have access to education. My central idea is 'Education can change how people think and live.' My lines of inquiry are: 1. Inequality of education between countries , 2. Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, 3. Governments granting access to education
