In Term 2 2017 we did Adaptations of Animals/Plants in Australia. Towards the end of term, we were told to do a project in a partnership my partner was http://emilyx2016.global2.vic.edu.au/ and the animal that we had to do was The Greater Bilby.
I think that we did a good job at covering most points/categories (Information Report, Annotated Diagram, Model, Experiment, Presentation and Collaborative Skills) in a Project. Something that I think we should have done when presenting is shown the class a little bit of our experiment or videoed us doing the experiment.
3 Facts I found Interesting or Surprising
- At six months of age the female bilby can physically breed
- That the bilby has many Entries and Exits to its borrows
- That there eye sight is not very good
2 Understandings you now have
- That you can be a marsupial and a mammal
- That the bilby can breed at a very young age (6 months)
1 Wondering you still have
- I still wonder if the bilbies will kill there young if they can’t get food
The most important things I learnt were to make sure I checked in with my partner so we both knew where we were up to. I learnt this by beginning the project and not knowing what my partner was doing and my partner not knowing what I was doing. With what I have learnt about teamwork and always checking in with my partner, in the future with what I have learnt when I am doing a team project or debate or anything that involves a group. I will be sure to always check in with my group so I always know where they are up to and to tell them at the start of the project that Teamwork is always the number 1 thing that every group needs.
