[Art]- "What Have We Learnt?"

Image result for artGreetings and welcome to my new blog post! Throughout last term and also this term (last couple of weeks), in our Optional Art class with Mrs Telefoni, we've been learning and designing a phenomenal piece of artwork. This artwork consists of our personal interests, surroundings & family/friends. We've looked into the technique that is used to create the artwork piece, and the technique used is carving and inking. We also looked into the placement of images, such as the Foreground, Midground and of course, the Background. . I was not told the proper technique or method, but those are the different processes we've gone through. The first thing we had to do was research images in which you are either interested in or the other topics above. The next step was to create a draft image to display what your final design is going to be... consisting of the topics you've chosen. After that... we began looking into the carving process, and we had to think about the "Negative & Positive sides", which was a big challenge for me at first. As of the process that I'm currently working on at the moment is waiting for my ink compressed image to dry up so that I am able to paint it. So that's the next process... "painting." Stay tuned to see my finished design, and thank you very much for visiting my blog!

[Social Studies] - "Avatar Film Perspectives"

"Avatar Film Perspective"

Greetings and welcome to my new blog post! Throughout this week in Social Studies with Ms Robertson, we have watched a well known film named "Avatar." From this film, we've been discussing about it's significant places such as Pandora, the homeland to the indigenous Na'Vi people. We've now moved onto the different perspectives or opinions we have upon the different characters shown within this film. Here is an image which was created on Google Drawings, informing you of my perspective/opinion that I have of characters portrayed within Avatar. These characters are Neytiri (Indigenous of Na'Vi clan), Jake Sully, Grace Augustine & Colonel Miles Quaritch. Thank you for visiting my blog, I appreciate it!

"The Vibe" - [Cisco Ramon Artwork]

Greetings and welcome to my new blog post! Throughout these holidays I've been working on some artwork from my favourite TV Show, and thought that it would be great to share my artwork with you all. Here we have a character named The Vibe portrayed by Carlos Valdes who has extraordinary abilities to see various events occurring in the past, present and the future, is able to open dimensional breaches to different Earths and Time, also can project powerful vibratory shock waves through his hands! Thank you all for visiting my blog, stay tuned for more, and enjoy the rest of your holidays!

[Science] - "(Polymers) Alkanes"

  • A saturated hydrocarbon family:
            (saturated means all the bonds around the Catom are already occupied)

  • Suffix is  -ane (added at the end)
  • General formula: CnH2n+2
  • Single bond between C Atoms C-C

Number Of
C Atoms
Name Of Alkane
Molecular Formula
n= number of C atoms)
Structural Formula
C1H2 (1) + 2       CH4
(2 x 1= 2) + 2= 4
C2H2(2) + 2       C2H6
(2 x 2= 4) + 2= 6
C3H2(3) + 2       C3H8
(3 x 2= 6) + 2= 8
C4H2(4) + 2       C4H10
(4 x 2= 8) + 2= 10
C5H2(5) + 2       C5H12
(5 x 2= 10) + 2= 12
C6H2(6) + 2       C6H14
(6 x 2= 12) + 2= 14
C7H2(7) + 2       C7H16
(7 x 2= 14) + 2= 16
C8H2(8) + 2       C8H18
(8 x 2= 16) + 2= 18
C9H2(9) + 2       C9H20
(9 x 2= 18) + 2= 20
C10H2(10) + 2       C10H22
(10 x 2= 20) + 2= 22

[Health] - "Effects Of Alcohol On The Body"

Greetings and welcome to my new blog post! Over the last couple of weeks within this term (Term 2) in Health class with Ms Dougherty, we've been focusing on drugs and alcohol. We've learnt all sorts of things about alcohol, such as the effects that has on you, your body and etc. Here is an image informing you of the task/activity we've been doing during class time this day. So we have here... the effects to of alcohol on your body, and also the various types of what alcohol causes; such as addiction. What I found interesting within this lesson is... alcohol poisoning, I didn't know at first of what alcohol poisoning was, until I researched information on YouTube, that it affects body temperature, blue pale skin. Thank you for your time!

[Social Studies] - "Darker Side Of Chocolate" Video Task

Image result for dark ghana chocolate

Greetings and welcome to my new blog post, throughout most of this term, in Social Studies with Ms Robertson, we've been learning and discussing about Child Labour. Today, we've looked in-depth towards it and have learnt about the people in Ghana who provide Dark Chocolate for people around the world. We've also been completing some activities and tasks relating towards an issue in Ghana, in which is the resources that they need for the people; especially the children in Ghana who are working in cocoa farms. Cocoa farm workers in Ghana have gotten help from Fair Trade, as they have provided them with resources such as water taps that pump healthy water for everyone, and also nutrition foods. The video that we have watched was named 'The Darker Side Of Chocolate', and this video was about cocoa workers in farms, which relates to what I've stated. Thank you for your time :)

[Science] - "Fashioned For You: Metals & Nonmetals"

Fashioned For You

Image result for metals

1) Differentiate between metals and nonmetals in terms of Physical and Chemical properties:
Physical Properties (Metals)
Chemical Properties (Nonmetal)
Good conductors of heat & electricity
Tend to lose electrons easily and form ions that are charged positively
Lustrous (shiny)
Forms of elements such as Sodium and etc
High melting point
Dull (Not shiny)
Can be hammered
Can be drawn into wires
Brittle (breaks easily into smaller pieces)
Usually solid at room temperature
Low density (light)
Opaque (Can’t see through it)
Low melting points

2) Relate the metals to it’s uses:
Iron is a chemical element and metal. Steel is a well known and commonly used alloy made from iron and a small amount of carbon (or sometimes other elements.) Iron is relatively cheap to produce and has a large number of different uses. Machines, vehicles and building structures are commonly built from iron (usually in the form of steel.)

Gold is a chemical element. Compared to other metals, gold is less chemically reactive. There is a system in which is called ‘gold standard’ which fixes a unit of money to a certain weight of gold. Injectable gold has been proven to help reduce pain and swelling in patients suffering from various diseases such as tuberculosis and rheumatoid arthritis.  

Silver is a chemical element. It is a soft and shiny metal that has been used for many years to make fine pieces of jewelry, coins, utensils and various pieces of art. It is also precious indeed. In modern times, silver is also used in dentistry, electronics, photography, mirrors and in number of industrial applications that make use of its unique properties.

Science Kids, (July 8 2016) Metal Facts. Retrieved from:

3. Describe how alloys are made and discuss the importances:
Alloys are found in various sorts of things including dentistry (teeth fillings), jewelry, door locks, musical instruments, coins, gun and etc. Alloys are metals combined with other substances in order to make them better in some way. However, some people think that the term ‘alloys’ defines the mixture of metals, well the actual definition of alloys are materials made up of at least two different chemical elements, one of which is a metal.

Eagle, A. (July 8 2016) What are alloys? How are they made?
