This is the second booktube, I chose activity number 6 from Cata’s Blog, which consisted in discussing the title and thinking of another possibilities. Here is the video:
In the last history class we had to get in pairs, I worked with Santi Guerrico, and watch a video in YouTube which explained Inflation, Hyperinflation and Hyperinflation in Germany in 1920s. Then we had to say why we chose that video and define the terms “Inflation” and “Hyperinflation”. Here is the video we chose:
We chose this video because it talked about all the topics we had to look for and explained the situation of Germany at that time. We understood everything very well and it showed images that helped us understand. It talked about how elevated the inflation was, with the price of a house one day you could buy at the same price some bread two days later. At one moment, it was even cheaper to burn the money instead of coal or wood.
“Inflation” is when the government of a country starts producing more money and the prices of services and goods, for example food, start rising.
“Hyperinflation” is a an extremely elevated Inflation, it is, for example, what happened in Germany in 1923, where the price of a house was the same price of the bread two days later.
This is the fifth day since we were given out the potato in the biology class. It has changed a little bit, specially the roots are larger. On Monday I have to give the potato to one of my teammates and one of them is going to do the same with it, taking photos of it each 2 days. Here is a photo of the potato:
This is the same potato of the previous post which was given to us in biology after 2 days.
In the last biology class the teacher gave us to choose between a potato or an onion to take to our homes a see how they grew. The work is in groups of three, I am with Mati Hartmann and Mati Campion. Mati Hartmann is the facilitator, Mati Campion the secretary and I am the presentator. Today is the first day, every two days we have to give the potato to another group member and take a photo of it and post it in our blogs. This is the photo of it.
In the last biology class we presented our biology project on cells. Here are some photos of the projects and the groups.
For the last Biology class we had to make a project choosing one of the teacher’s projects that she left on her Blog. The day of the presentation we had to assess the groups that presented based on a rubric that the teacher left on her blog. I worked with Manu Carrizo and Lucas Vorbeck. Manu was the one who bought the cake and we made it at his home. We took the information from photos from the internet and the biology book we use in class. The only problem we had was deciding the size of the cake, but we think it was good at the end.
Here is the assessment that I made:
Group 1: 23/28
Group 2: 23/28
Group 3: 21/28
Group 5: 24/28
Group 6: 22/28
Group 7: 22/28
Group 8: 26/28
The History teacher left an activity to do in her Blog after watching a video. Here is the activity done
1) For: Germany was the main responsable to the starting of the war because she declared war on Russia, then on France and then invaded Belgium. By invading Belgium Britain will enter the fight to protect Belgium because of the Treaty of London.
Against: Germany was important in the war, but it is not fair to make her guilty for the starting of it. There was also the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. Also the Austro-Hungarians put very hard terms to the serbians and declared war on them on July 11th 1914.
2) The term which followed War Guilt was Reparations. As in the treaty it said Germany was the main responsable for the starting of the war, they should pay the reparations for the ones who got affected. These reparations were not only paid in money, also in resources such as gold. In comparison to today’s dollars, it would costed 400 billion dollars to pay these reparations. These reparations humilliated german people and some people say it affected the german economy.
3) They, the victors, tried to prevent another war with the treaty because they thought Germany would want revenge in the future and cause another war.
4) Germany lost Poland, Alsace-Lorraine, their colonies in Africa and their holdings in the Pacific Ocean and the one in China. Germany lost her colonies in Africa. Wilson disliked the germans losing all their territory because he thought they would want revenge and create another war.
5) The nations that were created after WW1 were Poland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Hungary.
After these, we had to see some conversations the senior 3 students made in 2016 about what the big three could have said. Then we have to choose our favourite.
The one I liked the most was the number 7, this one. I liked it because I think it talked about the most important things the big three wanted and I found it very easy to understand.
In the language classes we were reading a book called “Boy” by Roald Dahl. I had to make a presentation about chapter 3, including characters, vocabulary and plot. Here is the presentation.
