This week for Miss White reading groups we learned to think about two sides of the issue, to use prior knowledge and new ideas to create a new thought, idea, opinion or perspective. And we also learned about the great pacific garbage patch.
What is synthesising? Synthesising is where you are putting together prior knowledge and new ideas/information to create a new idea.
What is the great pacific garbage patch? The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a type of marine collection of marine in the ocean. Marine is litter that ends up in oceans, seas, and other large bodies of water.
First, we had to discuss in a group what the great pacific garbage patch is. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a type of marine collection of marine in the ocean. Marine is a litter that ends up in oceans, seas, and other large bodies of water.
Next, we had to go through the questions and read the story about if any kind of school should do the great pacific garbage patch free challenge for only tuesday. The questions were, “Predict what you think this text might be about ” and “what do you already know about plastic?”. The answer to predict why you think this text is about. I wrote down “I think this text is gonna be about kids from school picking up plastic rubbish and putting it in a special bin”.
Then, we had to define the 6 different types of words that talk about the great pacific garbage patch. The words were, Great pacific garbage patch, tangled, injured, marine animals, plastic, and collect. For the great pacific garbage patch I had to research what the definition is for the great pacific garbage patch it came up with saying “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a collection of marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean”. After we finished answering all of the questions we had to think and discuss in a group if PBS should try the plastic free challenge. For my answer I said yes we should because there is lots of plastic and rubbish everywhere and people are not putting it in the rubbish bin and it ends up going in the ocean or other types of bodies of water.
Afterwards, we had to make a copy of a google document that we had to think about two sides of an issue. There are 3 types of template we have to write down. They are called point view 1 which means they have to write down if they should do the challenge, point view 2 means that they have to write down if they should not do the challenge and last and not least my opinion. My opinion means it’s your opinion to tell others if they should do it and write down the reason why they should or not.
Lastly, we had to make a google slide or a DLO about the great pacific garbage patch. In the google slide or DLO we had to write down the questions which are what is it, where is it, how do we help it, and how do we prevent rubbish pollution.
I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at explanning what the great pacific garbage patch is. I need to improve on adding more details.
