Teacher Resources (Lesson Plans, Worksheets)
In the beginning, Brian and Tomas really just wanted to tell stories about their fishing adventures and got off topic a lot. Tomas says, “If I had been in Pauline’s shoes at the beginning of this project I think I would have killed me Brian for not working when we had all that time to get all our information and research”. We were not getting a lot of work done and we were falling farther and farther behind the rest of the class. But with the help of our coach and our teacher we managed to make a plan and we got caught up with our research. Tomas and Brian helped alot by really trying hard to get their part done and not to tell stories or get off topic. It took a while, but Tomas really started to get organized and helped Pauline to get everything back together. We didn’t exactly get to where we wanted to be with our website in terms of decoration, but it came out pretty good anyway.
We all used our strengths in different areas. It turned out that Pauline, was really good at organizing the work and learning the technology we needed to make a successful website. She researched Bass and when to fish. She also got some interesting pictures. Tomas got his share of the work done, a good amount of pictures, plus a little extra work. He also tried to help Brian succeed in finishing his part of the research, (which Brian never quite finished). Tomas researched Trout and different Area’s to fish. Brian got most of his research done and got a few pictures. He researched Northern Pike, and The Top five Baits to use when fishing for Northern Pike, Bass, and Trout. The pictures from Pauline, Tomas, and Brian really helped to jazz up our website and illustrated some of what we were writing about. Our site is now looking pretty nice has a lot of good information for fishing in it, and some good fishing pictures. Plus we are all very proud of what we have accomplished. I do not think that we could have done it without each other. At least I don’t think any of us could have done it at the level that it is at now. I think it would be fun to do Thinkquest again next year if we could all stay on topic do all of our work, and maybe organize everything better. Over all I think we worked pretty well together (except in the beginning). We had a good time working together and we think that we worked really hard on this website.
Our team is very different in lots of ways. Pauline is a very good learner. That is why we chose her as our team leader. Brian is good at getting pictures. Tomas is good at getting work done and helping Pauline to get organized. He also helped Brian with his work. We all get along pretty good; we all have a lot of enthusiasm for fishing. Another thing that makes our team different is that we have boys and girls on it and we still work well together. It also effected our website because of our different Qualities. With Pauline’s ability to learn how to use the website program “golive” and Brian and Tomas’s knowledge on fishing, we have created a pretty good website. We used a lot of places to gather all of our information. We used websites to look at the format, and we used both websites and books to get the info that we needed. Making this website was very challenging, but we are looking forward to doing it again next year. Pauline’s team was made up of three people, two boys and one girl. Each of us enjoys fishing. Brian like to fish in ponds, lakes, bogs and streams. Some of my favorites are Forest Lake and Dublin Lake. Tomas likes to fish in lakes, streams, oceans, rivers and ponds. Pauline likes to fish in lakes, ponds and rivers. Each of us enjoys fishing. Brian said “I like ponds, lakes, bogs and streams”. Some of Brian’s favorites are Forest Lake and Dublin Lake. Tomas likes lakes, streams, oceans, rivers and ponds. Pauline likes lakes, ponds and rivers. Tomas’s strength is gardening, hunting, fishing, and baseball, hiking and cooking. My strength is fishing, hiking, basketball and cooking. Pauline’s strength’s are school, cooking, and fishing, grading and reading. Brian’s learning style is by hearing, Pauline’s style of learning is hearing. Tomas’s style of learning is seeing it. It enhanced our website by doing different fish. Two of us are also hunters and one is not a hunter. Pauline likes fishing for bass. Tomas likes fishing for trout. Brian like fishing for northern pike. We all have different style of fishing. Tomas fishes with small hooks and small bait. Pauline likes fishing with medium bait and large hooks. Brian likes fishing with big hooks and large bait. We all are good in different subjects in school. Like Brian is good at physical education. Tomas is good at math. Pauline is good at reading.
