The Onager vs Trebuchet : Week 8

Week 8 The Onager Vs Trebuchet This term our class is learning about the Trebuchet and the Onager’s similarities and differences.
Did you know both of the catapults are needed to be set up and can’t rapid fire? The trebuchet has a bigger arch to get its projectile higher and into the castles in the roman days. This is obvious, but both of the projectile's launch. I wonder if the Romans built the catapults as big as a playground.
Did you know that the trebuchet has slower velocity but it goes further while the onager has faster velocity but it goes a shorter distance. The onager also needs to be nailed down because it might swing forward and may hit someone with power. The trebuchet uses weights because the weights pull the throwing arm up and launch the projectile. I wonder if the onager was used in the old days as a castle infiltrator to help the attackers get inside and steal the loot.

Overall..I think that the trebuchet would be most useful in the olden days.

IMovie about hamsters


Today Max and I completed our inquiry project about hamsters. Our project was an IMovie about hamster facts,how to keep your hamster safe and what kind of food to feed it. What we did for the hamster iMovie is that we searched up cute hamster photos and interesting facts. What we did in the movie is that we paired up the cute photos and the interesting facts together. I think Max and I are at relational because while making the movie, Max had many ideas and i did as well like pairing up the cute photo of a roborovskis hamster with a roborovskis fact. What I'm proud of is that I finished my project with no mistakes and really good producing. My next steps are to try and get up onto extended abstract and try my hardest to improve my writing.
