Thankyou Makayla for this wonderful peice of recount writing about our Newspaper tower experience. If you would like to see more about this lesson, check out our Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir episode here
Have you ever made a skyscraper out of newspapers before? Do you think you would succeed or fail. Did you know that we were constructors today.
While I was sitting down on the mat I was just playing around with Mr Goodwin’s draws. Then suddenly Mr Goodwin came into class, he nearly caught me. So after that he was explaining the instructions to us, then I was like “what”. In my head I was like “no I don’t like newspapers”. Then that whole time I wasn’t very excited.
In my group it was Me (Makayla), Naomi, Daisy, Amelia, Paikea and Trendy. So after the instructions Mr Goodwin gave each group a paper and a pencil to plan how our tower was going to look like. So while my group was planning I was just sitting down and doing nothing while the others worked, But Daisy, Amelia and Naomi were so brainy that they came up with a lot of ideas for our tower. But Trendy and Paikea were like me and just sat there.
So after we planned how our tower would look like Mr Goodwin told us that we could start building. So we started building accorded to our plan, While my team was making the tower I was doing the tape. But while my team already had tape I was looking around at the other teams towers they were so creative. But then I was just looking around when Daisy said Makayla I need tape.
After Daisy asked me for tape she taped it on then suddenly the timer went off. But when we let go of the tower it fell, but the only tower that stood was Justice's group. I was so disappointed of our tower. But I was still happy, because at least we tried.
