Special Olympics Advertising

Walt: create an advertisement persuading people to go to the Special Olympics here in Palmerston North.

I used MS Publisher to create this poster.

To make my poster stand out and grab the reader’s attention I used bright colours that go with the back ground and have pictures that go with the event.
I found making the words stand out challenging because there were no good colours to go with the background.
Something I enjoyed was learning how to use a new program to do my work on.
In my poster I used pictures off Clip art and I used eyecatching colours and words.

Special Olympics Movie

WALT: follow an inquiry process and present out inquiry learning about the Special Olympics using MS Movie maker.

Before making this movie, I looked over the feedback I received last term for my movie about China. Some of the things I took into consideration and tried to improve on when making this movie were to use a loud and clear voice and use different background.

Something interesting I have learnt about the Special Olympics during this inquiry is that you have to be 5 or over to compete and over 1million people participate.

A challenge I found in this inquiry was having to remember the words before we were on camera, I maneged to solve this by trying to make scenes where the person behind the camera could hold the script or make some scenes have to have the script.

WALT:Follow an inquiry process.

This term we have been learning about China, we have continued building on the inquiry skills we have learnt in term 2. We brainstormed open questions as a class and then delegated these out to pairs.

The part of China Simone and I were finding out more about was China's Traditions, Beliefs and Religions. We found our information on the Internet and from books. We used a data chart to make sure we triangulated all our information so we knew it was true. We then used Movie Maker to present our inquiry.

Something I enjoyed was working with my best friend an learning how to use a new programme. An interesting fact I found out was that the Chinese light off fire crackers to scare off the bad spirits for the New Year also if Yin and Yang are balanced people are happy. My next learning step in inquiry is to try and find more information on my triangulated sheet.
