Today related to self-awareness because we learnt about our feelings and emotions in the morning and after that we learnt to cooperate and work in a group in EvolveEd. We started the day with learning about ourselves through art. Art helps me understand something about myself by showing how I feel and my mood when I draw and paint. When I do art on paper, it shows that I am relaxing and want to create something that looks good. When I do physical art, it shows that I'm active and want to practice my skills to become better.
We continued the day by going to growth mindset or mindfulness sessions. The connection between growth mindset/mindfulness and self-awareness is understanding about yourself. For example, in growth mindset/mindfulness you understand about yourself by realizing how your mind works and thinks.
After that we did the movie making tech challenge. In that we did an iMovie where everything and everyone was still and didn't move in the scenes and it showed how a place changed over time. It related to being self-aware because we learnt that we could create a type of movie which everything was strange.Technology challenges me when I want to do something that I don't know how to and I have to find out how to do it. I learnt that I'm good at acting for movies in the tech challenge.
The experiences we did today helped answer the essential questions because we made art works to resemble our feelings, we did a mindfulness activity which involved teamwork and paying attention and we did a tech challenge which was movie making.
I participated in all the activities, giving my best effort. I acted well and participated in everything. I could have made up an idea for the mindfulness activity which was rolling a marble on newspaper. The experience was fun and learning. The highlights of the day were the emotions we learnt about, the marble activity and the movie making. I experienced the happy emotion throughout the day.
