For my STEAM fair project this year I did water filtration. When we were 1 week in the STEAM fair and I was very nervous becuase miguel my partner told me that he was going to vagas for one week. That means that I have to do the project alone for a week, I thought that this will go really wrong but it ended up being great I got all the work done!
After that week was over me and miguel only had our conclusion left and then we had to build our filter.
For our filter we used many materials, we used sand for the top, a layer of filter paper, 2 layers of cotton balls and at the bottom lots of cheese cloth. Our project ended of to be a success we got our water to be very clean. A total tps of 80! Miguel and I were very happy!
We ended up getting 3rd place in our class and getting a bronze medal.

In todays class we were doing a learning style kind of test and at the end what ever you circled the most from a,b and c is how you learn. For A it was a visual learner, for B it was an auditory learner and for C it was a tactile/ kinesthetic learner. I circled b 9 times and for A I circled 4 times. c I circled 7 times. So I got auditory learner, alot of it is true but some of them i dont do like make noises when im alone or talk or randomly talk to myself.
What qualities do you look for in your friends? Choose one of these qualities a friend has, and explain in detail why you admire it.
I admire friends who are supportive. This quality is important because it means that they will like me for who I am. They will also be there when I want to chase my dreams and when I go through hard times. They will cheer me up. Whenever we have water breaks my team always talks about what we want to be when we’re older and when I say that I want to be a soccer player my friend says that he believes in me.
What book/movie or TV show has had a significant impact on you, so much so, that if you never read/watched it, you might be a different person? Explain why it is so meaningful.
The movie that had a significant impact on me is a houlacoust movie. It showed me how bad it really was to the jews at the time. if i wouldn’t have watched it would change me because i would probably say that it wasn’t that bad now i realized how horrible they got treated.
What do you do that makes you the most happy? Why do you think this provides you with happiness?
What makes me happy is when I play Soccer. Soccer makes me happy because it’s what I want to do for the rest of my life because I love it so much. Also I play with my friends so it makes it even better!
last week we had to make agoogle slides about us and what we want to be when where older. there were two types of slide you could make one of them was you have to know how old you are an animal years for example one of them was a bunny. here is the link to my google slides about me https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1SO8AOQz3to4h3imkRWU3_RiBWXNI1rd4wD2dhvN8wlQ/edit#slide=id.geef66c2b7b_0_0
My school had a middle school retreat! A middle school retreat is when middle school gets to go on trips and we have a topic this year’s theme was rebuilding a community. My favorite part was the obstacle course. It was really fun! We also went water rafting and that was fun too but I didn’t like the food and we were rafting for 4 hours. It was exhausting and the swimsuits were so tight.Overall it was really fun but next time I wish we get better.
Today was grand perents day we learned about sustainability. We went to breakout rooms with our grandperents and did a servey about sustainability here our the questions I came up with my grandperents .
it was alout of fun to see our grandperents again

When my mom got a cencussion it changed every thing becuase we couldint read and watch any shows together and it changed me becuase I am allways bye my self and doing stuff alone becuase for so long I couldint do anything with my family.The readear should learn to always be safe with what you eat and spend every secend of your life with your family becuase you never know or when something bad will strike your family. If you want to read my memoir
All I could hear was screaming. I woke up in Cuba in a hotel with my brother and dad. Everyone woke up and my dad rushed to my mom’s room. I was continuing to wake up and was scared because I didn’t know what had happened. My brother and I were left in our room, and my dad came back and said “ mommy is bleeding and we’re going to the hospital“. He told us he was taking her to the hospital and we had to stay in the room. I wasn’t allowed to go to the hospital. I was still feeling scared and I didn’t really know what to do. I wanted to help, but I couldn’t. I could see the pain in her eyes. My sister was there to tell me that everything was going to be okay. This was the most worried I had ever been about my mom before.
My dad came back at 10:00-11:00 AM and my mom had received stitches. I was less worried hearing that she was okay. My mom continued to rest in her room during the rest of the vacation. Toward the end of the week I saw her. When I saw her I gave her a hug it felt like hugging a cloud. My brother and I went for a swim and we had coca cola in a coconut.
The nurse would check on her daily to see if she was feeling better.When she was outside she would always wear sunglasses because the sun would hurt her eyes. When it was time to come back home she was nervous because she didn’t know yet that she got a concussion and it’s dangerous to fly on a plane if you have a concussion. A couple days later my mom went to see a doctor. The doctors did an MRI and it was confirmed that my mom had a concussion from falling as a result of food poisoning .For more than a month my mom was on bedrest. When she was on bedrest she was sitting in her room for the whole day with the blinds off. she wasn’t able to go on screens. She would always rest If she would get out of her room she would wear sunglasses. My sister and I would help her by making food for her and getting her tea or coffee. We tasted the food first to see if it was good and the tea smelled refreshing . My dad would also help with the food we would also help by staying quiet so she could rest. she would recover a little bit every day and rest and rest till the concussion was going away. Suddenly she would be able to look outside and not have to wear sunglasses. She was able to go on her phone and watch television. She was able to make her own food and she went back to do her job teaching kids. And she drove her car. I spent much more time with her than before. We would watch shows, read books. It went back to normal just how it was before we left to go on our vacation.
My mom still has some side effects like migrain to stop that when she is on screens she has special glasses that don’t hurt her eyes or give her headaches. I never had a concussion before but if I get one I know now what it would be like.
This experience taught me to be careful with what I eat and ask if it’s safe to eat.this experience also taught me to always try to enjoy life as much as possible because you never know what will happen and when something bad will happen.I chose this memoir because my mom getting a concussion is one of the worst experiences of my life. I still think about it often and it made me think about my life differently. I hope this doesn’t happen again and no one will ever have to go through this experience.
