Reflection of inquiry question

Should the structure of the periodic table be changed?

In this blog I will explain and answer this question, I think no because The periodic table is complicated now and I think it would be harder if they changed it and If it would be changed it would be hard to know what the reactivity is and where the groups are. If they change it where would we put the new elements would we put them in periodic table (at the bottom because it is new), would we put it with the same group it is supposed to be in or put it somewhere in the periodic table in. The elements should be properly placed in the same group and it should be handled good because then you don’t ruin the periodic table.  the periodic table is good now because it is easy to understand and the elements are placed in the right place.

Reflection about ISB environment

This unit we had to improve the school (well not literally the whole school but a piece like lockers or study halls). I choose to do a study hall because i want to help the students to study because most of them are playing or are just not doing work, so i want to help the school.

This unit was also helpful for me because i think it can help me improve on my learning or working skills.

I really liked the the investigation because i like seeking for more study halls to help my work.

I didn’t like the part when we had to make a annotated source because i think it was really hard and maybe a little boring but that did not stop me working on this project. We started this project about five weeks ago.

  • I think the male and female reproduction system
  • What did you find difficult?
  • I think when we have to know which day something happens.
  • What helped you when you got stuck?

Hurricane – Jonah – Music essay

Hurricane” is a protest song by Bob Dylan co-written with Jacques Levy, about the imprisonment of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter. It compiles alleged acts of racism and profiling against Carter, which Dylan describes as leading to a false trial and conviction. Carter and a man named John Artis had been charged with a triple murder during a robbery at the Lafayette Grill in Paterson, New Jersey in 1966. Carter and Artis were found guilty of the murders, which were widely reported as racially motivated. In the years that followed, a substantial amount of controversy emerged over the case, ranging from allegations of faulty evidence and questionable eyewitness testimony to an unfair trial. In his autobiography, Carter maintained his innocence, and this eventually led Dylan to visit him in Rahway State Prison in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey. The song changed a lot of things it made some of the white people think that black people are the same. Bob Dylan is 73 years old (born May 24,

How to become a popstar Reflection


Teacher: Mr. Lems

what did you do in music: We had to make a song and our song was Pompeii from Bastille. what did you learn: I learned how to play Pompeii on the piano. working with others: my teammates were good but most of the times they would get of track and me and Pleun would stay on track. Teammates: Pleun, Jessica, Annallies, Miguel and me. ideas for composing or for preparing a performance: Stay on track, learn the notes by head because if you don’t you will have a bad song, be somewhere where it is quiet because the noise will distract you. how your skills are developing: My skills are developing because i am practicing a lot and i can concentrate on the work. how well a performance has gone: It has been good but most of my teammates were not doing work so i just did my work and then i recorded and then i hoped that it was nice. performances you do: I did lots of songs like pirates of the Caribbean and others. the music you are listening to and how it influences you: It is nice the music like I am a Albatroz is nice and Dangerous, they are good but they are bad influence for the children. any ideas about music that you want to share: I dont know any. any interesting musical experiences you have had: i know how to play the guitar but not that much and a piano and that is all.
