Who We Are

As part of our research during Dear America, we researched a country we were assigned. Some of the countries were Russia, Poland, England, and Japan. As soon as you knew it we were making slides for a video. Some of the slides were food, push and pull factors, inventions, and about the authors. It probably became one of the most liked projects. 

Then we wrote a script for the video. After we were done with our script we had it checked. Then we recorded our script on Explain Everything which we did on the iPads. When we were done it was so cool! Then we presented our presentations and everyone loved it!

Graphing Waves of Immigration

Using a ruler to highlight just the
 country we were studying.
Adding all the answers together.
As part of our research during Who We Are, we calculated the population of the country we were researching.  We added up every 20 years, and later found the total population of those years.  Then we went to a website to create a graph, showing all the waves of immigration.  We created the line graph because it was clearest to show the biggest wave of immigration.

It was fun to create the graphs!  Miles did a graph for the Netherlands and Jules did a graph for India.  We both thought that create a graph was fun!
