Infographics 1 Description

Advanced Enrichment Name: Infographics 1

Learning Facilitator: Jessica

Number of Students: 13

Advanced Enrichment Dates: August 12-Oct 17

Days We Meet: Thursday and Friday

Course Description: In Infographics class we learned about what does infographics mean. Infographics mean the way showing information as a chart or diagram. In Infographics we learned to look at the pictures to understand the information and we were so excited to get a chance to looked at an infographic because it was our first time to look at infographics by our own. When we first looked at infographic we got a little confused but the strategies are sometimes to look at the arrow. Infographics might have a lot of pictures but some don’t have a lot of pictures. The pictures that we looked at were about the Earth like when the animals die and decompose and become gasoline or gold. We even looked at infographics about acid rain. At the end of our Advanced Enrichment, we made our own infographic about Liger as the same as 100 people. We made our own infographic because we wanted other students and visitors to get some information from our infographic.

 

Zoology A Description

Name of Course: Zoology

Learning Facilitator: Jojo

Number of Students: 12

Dates: Jan. 19 – March 27

Days we Meet: Monday and Tuesday

Course Description: In our class, we learned about the animals, for example, bacteria is the first organism that has lived on Earth. We learned about different kinds of organisms that live in the world, for example, in the ocean, there are different kinds of living things like starfishes and turtles. After that, we learned about invertebrates and vertebrates. Invertebrates are the organisms that don’t have a backbone. Vertebrates are the organisms that have a backbone. Ex: cow have a backbone, the sponge doesn’t have a backbone. We learned about marine animals and territory animals. Marine are the organisms that live in the ocean only. Ex: Octopus is a marine animal. A territory is the organisms that live on land. Ex: cats are the territory animals. In the water, there are a lot of insects. We learned how the insect’s metamorphosis. Metamorphosis means change. We learned about the metamorphosis are about their life cycle. In class, we learned a lot of things most things that we learned are the mammals. Mammals are the organisms that have a baby in their belly and give their baby a milk like a human.

Khmer History Description

Name of Course: Khmer History

Learning Facilitators: Darath and Kimchhel

Days of the Week: Monday and Tuesday

Number of Students: 13

Dates Study: August 12-Oct 17
Course Description: In our Advanced Enrichment we divided the group into two. One group learned with Kimchhel and other group learned with Darath. The group that learned with Kimchhel learned about Chenla era (Chela) and Preah Bath TroSork Pa-eam era (Dark Ages). But the group that learned with Darath learned about Nokor Phnom era (Funan Empire) and Angkor era (Khmer Empire). At the end of the class, both groups shared what they had learned and the group that not yet learned took the notes. Then the teacher asked the group that took the notes about what our friends had told us. Usually, we did this for both groups. Also, the group that learned with Kimchhel or with Darath reviewed the things that they had learned from last week. When we learned in Khmer History class we learned a lot about Khmer history. Now we want to tell you one thing from every era. Nokor Phnom era (Funan Empire) was from years 68-550. Chenla era (Chenla) was from years 550-802. Angkor era (Khmer Empire) was from years 802-1431. Preah Bath TroSork Pa-eam era (Dark Ages) was from years 1618-1863.

Botany 2 Description

Name of Course: Botany 2

Learning Facilitator: Jojo

Number of Students: 9

Dates: October 20-January 16

Days we Meet: Thursday-Friday

Course Description: In our Advanced Enrichment we learned about botany. Botany means learning about plants. Plants are the only organisms that can make their own food and that’s called sugar or glucose. Plants make their own food is called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis means plants take sunlight to make their own food. Plants make photosynthesis on the leaves. The organ in leaves works to make the food. In leaves have chloroplast and in chloroplast have chlorophyll. Plants take the carbon dioxide and layout oxygen. During the day, they do photosynthesis. Plants have physical features. There are roots, stem, leaves, fruits, and flowers. In the stem, there are two tubes. The first tube is for sucking the food or it’s called nutrients and the second tube is for sucking the water. In our class we had the activity is growing the plants. Our resources were paper, plastic bag, water, and seed. First, we needed to soak paper with water but not very wet and put the seed in it. Rub it not too tight and put in plastic bag. The plastic bag needed to be open for oxygen get in it and put at the place that has a sunlight. We need to put the water unless the paper is dry. When the seed germinates like come out the stem, leaves, we take out from the paper and put in the soil.

Algebra C Description

Name of Course: Algebra C

Learning Facilitator: Jeff

Number of Students: 12

Dates: Jan 19-March 27

Days we Meet: Thursday and Friday

Course Description: Our group learned about Algebra. We started to learn one big keyword is PEMDAS. Then we started to study the definition of each letter. PEMDAS means: P stands for Parenthesis, E stands for Exponent, M stands for Multiply, D stands for Divide, A stands for Add and S stands for Subtraction. After this, we learned about negative numbers and positive numbers. We learned how to multiply, divide, add and subtract negative numbers and positive numbers together. With that, we had the equation to practice too. When we finished this we drew the number line to know about negative and positive numbers. Then we tried to solve the problems with parenthesis and exponents together. Next, we worked on combining like terms and x,y tables. All the problems that we did the teacher can help a little bit and the less we must to do it by ourselves. The teacher helped us and taught us very well. In the class we worked like a team then we gave the work to the teacher to check.
