Five simple machines- STEM round 5

For this round, we learned about five simple machines in our STEM class. Well to be honest for this round I learned just a little bit from STEM class because I went on a lot of trips. We did learn about five simple machines it has Wheel and Axle, Ramp, Lever, Screw, Wedge and Pulley. We have a task in the team to make a machine that contains some of the five simple machines in it and it can make your life easier, and my team makes a machine called Mango Picker. This machine used three different simple machines such as wheel and axle, lever and a ramp. It can make your life better and easier because we used this machine to moving or picking up something heavy that you need a lot of energy and it works because of the simple machines. As I said I’ve been on a lot of trips during this round so I have less knowledge and don’t really understand about these lessons.

Marine Theater Exploration

Participate in helping cleaning the ocean is happy for me because I love and understand about ocean. 

Marine Theatre is an exploration that I’m in for the last round of the year, and it is the combination of Marine life and Travelling theatre. Our is to make the ocean clean again by making a play and perform that play to educate people who live in a coastal area or fishing community. Why? Because we want them to understand, and get to know more about the area that they are living right now, to let them know the importance of the area that they are living at. I really love this exploration, it makes me realize that I love marine biology and making me want to know more about marine life. Also, I enjoy learning the acting skills for the play and it makes me enjoy acting. For me personally, this exploration makes me realize that I don’t have enough responsibility for my works so I need to focus more on this. I did experience the uncertainty situation and how to handle it. 

This is the VDO of our play hope you like it! 

(Sorry the play is in Khmer)

Math round 5

Sometimes I wonder what did architect use to make a sketch for the buildings or room, and this round in Math class I found and learn about the mysterious things that I wondered! 

The coordinate graph is a lesson that I’ve learned in Math class, and it also the question that I’ve asked myself for a long time. The architect uses the coordinate graph to mark the point and to see the size of the building or the room so that would be easy for them to sketch and build. I’ve learned it last year but just a little, but now I did learn more about it for this round. I learned about the quadrant in the coordinate graph, the positive and the negative. I learned how to find X and Y in the graph too.

How to be happy when you angry or mad at someone!- English Literacy round 5

How do you feel when people don’t listen to you or take you seriously, people who like to hit or fight me and people who like to gossip about m. These types of people always make me angry, you know what did I do? Well!, I always have a fight with them most of the time. I sometimes use swear words, sometimes throwing stuff at them, I’m sure you know that I’ll get consequences. I used to think this was the best way to deal with my anger by following the steps below! What about you? How do you feel if you walk around and someone punches you, and you didn’t even do anything wrong to them? I’m sure you’ll be angry or mad at them, And what should you do to escape from that situation? For me personally, after I get more advice about how to control myself with Mrs. Mary(the psychology in Liger)  and RE(person who look after me in Liger. Also, some advice that I got from the internet, I’ve become better than before. 

So if you want some advice check it out! 

If you are really angry and mad at someone you might need to stay away from that person. Base on Wikihow there is some advice to calm yourself down, and I followed the incredible advice from this website too. 

  1. Control yourself first impulse– You can control yourself for impulse is that you should ask yourself what do you want to do that is productive to you. Take time to think about that you act and think about what could make yourself calm down. You can talk a walk and getaways from that tight situation. Not only walk away but getting outside, seeing nature will help you to release some of your anger, let you throw t stuck in your body. Well, I know this feeling when the tight situation because I’ve experienced this before, but I get away from that place and I look at green nature it helps me release all of my anger by crying. 
  2. Art– You can use art to release your anger like dancing, singing, painting, drawing, listen to music. Dancing is really helpful while you are angry at someone, it helps you to forget what those people did to you, you just have to pick a tune for yourself to dance, like hip hop, contemporary dance something like that. Singing you can choose your favorite song that you’re like to sing or the song that to reflect your anger. You can draw or paint whatever you want to help you low the power of anger. Listening to your favorite music also could help you lower your anger or you can listen to relaxing music like this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjHGZj2IjBk. For me mostly I listen to this type of relaxing song, I just do my homework and don’t care about other things just put this type of song along with the ways I do my homework. 
  3. Meditate– You also can release your anger or madness by sitting straight upright in a chair. Take a deep breath, while you are breathing in then count to 6 and slowly breath out continue counting to 10. You can count out loud or whispering the numbers just for yourself to calm down, you do that because to make you not think about the situation that happened to you. Also meditate will calm yourself down, lower your anger it like refreshing your brain again. Not only that you can use your imagination to help you lower your anger like imagine about a beautiful place in your dream or the place that you wish to go or see. I sometimes did meditate even though I’m not angry and it helps me release my stress out and make me happy.
  4. Listen to some relaxing music– You can listen to your favorite song that would be a very good way to do that. Pick your favorite song or the song that impulse you, or help to make your mood better.
  5. Turn on your positive thoughts– You can reduce your anger by trying to think of something positive. If you know that person that makes your angry you better think of a good moment that they did to you. You need to think something positive at least three things. 

Why you should follow all of this advice? Because as you know, when you are angry or mad it is difficult to control yourself. Some people might destroy something valuable especially furniture, they could fight other people and not only fight they also could kill people too. That is why you need to control your anger, instead of letting your anger destroy other people. I encourage you all to follow this advice to be a good role model for the next generation.

How I change Cambodia!

How I Change Cambodia

I wonder why the time is traveling really fast, it goes and goes and it won’t stop. Time is really fast, it’s not waiting for me, so I need to use my time wisely for my third years in Liger! I’ve learned so many things from Liger, I improved my studying like English, Math, STEM and many more subjects. Not only studying I also help to change Cambodia too!

How can I know I am changing Cambodia?

Well, even though I didn’t participate a lot of the activities or opportunities but some of the activities that I’ve joined also help to change Cambodia too. I hope that all of the efforts that I’ve put in this work would share and inspire some people in Cambodia and help changing Cambodia with me to become a better country.

 

Marine Theatre

There are more than 70% of the water are from the ocean, and the ocean gave us a lot of advantages, like foods for us. It produces half of the oxygen on earth and absorbs carbon dioxide. Also, it provides ecotourism to let people make money, which helps economic growth. The majority of people are getting advantages from the ocean every day. But, nowadays people are destroying the ocean by doing illegal fishing, making the corals bleaching, coastal developments, and polluting the ocean. So we have a solution making an Exploration which calls Marine Theatre to help ocean again.

Marine Theatre is an Exploration that I’ve joined this year for round 5. This exploration is the combination of Marine Life and Travelling Theatre. We combine it by making a play that could share the knowledge about the ocean with people. Specifically, our goal is to share the knowledge with people who live near the coastal areas, or in the fishing communities about the impact that they did to the ocean and let them clean our ocean again. I’ve learned so many things that I never know before especially marine biology, and I also know a lot about the effect from us humans to the ocean.

In order to make the plays we need all of our members in this exploration which is 16 members and 1 facilitator. We did divided members into the crews because our we have limit time for 7 weeks. For the crews, we have costumes design, set design, scriptwriter, director, assistants, sound director, communication director, tour manager, and actors. After our play finish, we did share our play by going to Kep province to perform our plays to students and they all understand about marine life better. Not only students, but there are some adults, monks, and teachers that participate in the performance too. We also joined the World Ocean’s Day event at Kampot Province and performed out our play. I really impress for me that many people have participated in helping the ocean. This is just a little help from us, so what if we all help the ocean together our ocean will be clean and beautiful.

I hope this play could change people mindset and start protecting the ocean instead of making an impact on the ocean.

 

Human of Cambodia

Well, because of my hobbies people called me gay, but actually, I’m a boy. I like hanging out with girls, they said I’m gay. Do you know how it feels when you are a boy and people called you gay? I felt really disappointed when people call me gay because they don’t know the real me. It felt embarrassing, and sometimes​​​ it makes me depressed. I just want to tell those people that its nature, I didn’t set it out.

Every day in our society there is a lot of bullying by judging the look, the wealth, racism, LGBTQ and much more discrimination. All of these could lead some people to mental health, depressed or can lead to suicide. It happened a lot to the teenager that just involve in society, and don’t know much about society.

Human of Cambodia is an exploration that I participated in round 4 this year. Our goal is to collect different stories that come from a different area, to see what the difference between high ranking people and ordinary people. Not only that we also wanted to share the interesting or the facts of their lives to let other people see, understand and to not judge people by their look or appearance. We want to take these stories and make it into a dance performance, to share and perform about their life.

To collect those stories we need to know some basics skills and technic to get the data, like interviewing, taking pictures and taking notes. I did learn all of these skills and I hope that I can share and teach other people about these skills (Actually I taught my brother how to use a camera and set up the setting). We collect a lot of stories, some are interesting and some are emotional which made me feel and go deeper with those situations.

I am one of the dancers in the dance performance, I practiced a lot with my friend just to hope our performance will help, and influence other people understand, to put their feeling into the story that we perform. I hope it will touch people feeling, to let people think that judging is important.

 

Khmer Literature Event

Situated in Cambodia, Literature plays an important role in Cambodia. It helps the readers to understand the beliefs, and Literature helps us to understand more about the history of our last generation, and specifically for people who research or want to know about the history of their country. Literature also shows the Civilization of the country which makes the country wonder. But nowadays really really small percents of us Cambodian care about Khmer literature. Because of them regardless, It leads Cambodia to lose Literature.

Becaof this problem, our School has created an occasion which called Khmer Literature Event. Our goal is to support more on Khmer literature, to spread out the literature and civilization for the next generation. We invite the students, teachers and other people to attend this event.

In this occasion, we have a lot of activities that could help the visitors to understand more about Khmer literature like competing for writing Khmer story, writing a poem, debating in Khmer. We also have boosts for the visitor to look around to get more knowledge. We have Khmer traditional dance, and modeling Khmer traditional clothes. I hope this event could help Cambodian to regard more about Khmer literature because it is really important for our country.

 

Technology/Multimedia

Well, This round my facilitator let students reflect on what they’ve learned from their previous term to reflect on what they have improved.

For me, I choose to make an illustration on Photoshop. This was my first time using Photoshop to make an illustration. It is really hard because I don’t really know much about photoshop, also I didn’t even know that we can make illustrations with Photoshop, but now I know more than before. First I need to make an outline for my picture that I got from the internet. It is hard for me to draw it because it is my first time using the drawing pad. It like everything new for me in photoshop. After I outline the image I need to use the Eyedropper tool to take the colors that are in the picture that I need to illustrate to use those colors for my illustrated image. Lastly, I use that color that I got to color in my illustrated picture to make it look like a full image. After I see my work I really fell in love with making new illustrated images and I want to improve more and want to know more tools that I can use to make in my illustrations better in Photoshop.

English Literacy round 4

How to be happy when you angry or mad at someone!

Outline:

  • I feel don’t really good when people don’t listen to me, people who like to use strong strength on me like hitting or fighting, people who like to gossip about me and many more. These types of people always make me angry, you know what did I do? I always have a fight with them most of the time. I sometimes use swear words, sometimes throwing stuff at them, I’m sure you know that I’ll get consequences. What about you? How do you feel if you walk around and someone punches you with strong strength, and you didn’t even do anything to them? I’m sure you’ll be angry or mad at them, And what should you do to escape from that situation? For me personally, after I get more advice about how to control myself with Mak Mary and RE, I’ve become better than before.

So if you want some advice check it out!

  • If you are really angry and mad at someone you might need to stay away from that person. Base on Wikihow there are 9 ways to calm yourself down, and I followed the incredible advice from this website too.
  1. Go for a walk– Getaways from that situation that makes you angry or mad. Getting outside and focus on nature is also helpful. Take a walk will help you throw out some of your negative thought from your mind of the people that make you angry, And you can say “I’m going to go for a walk”.
  2. Control yourself first impulse– You can control yourself for impulse is that you should ask yourself what do you want to do that is productive too. Take time to think about that you act and think about what could make yourself calm down.
  3. Dance– Dancing is really helpful while you are angry at someone. It helps you to forget what those people did to you. Just pick a tune for yourself to dance, like hip hop, contemporary dance something like that.
  4. Do a deep breathing exercise– You also can release your anger or madness by sitting straight upright in a chair. Take a deep breath, while you are breathing in then count to 6 and slowly breath out continue counting to 10.   
  5. Count backward from fifty– You can count out loud or whispering the numbers for yourself to calm yourself down. You need to focus on the numbers that you count not focus on the bad that cause you to be angry.  
  6. Meditate– Meditate is really helpful too. It helps you calm yourself down your temper will go low, it helps to remove the situation that happened to you from your brain.
  7. Visualize a peaceful scene– You can close your eyes and imagine your favorite place that you want to go, examples like a beach, mountain or waterfall. It also can be a scene that you’ve got a dream of. So just pick one of your favorite scenes and enjoy it in your mind it will remove the anger.
  8. Listen to some relaxing music– You can listen to your favorite song that would be a very good way to do that. Pick your favorite song or the song that impulse you, or help to make your mood better.
  9. Turn on your positive thoughts– You can reduce your anger by trying to think of something positive. If you know that person that makes your angry you better think of a good moment that they did to you. You need to think something positive at least three things.
  • Why you should follow all of this advice? Because as you know, when you are angry or mad you couldn’t control yourself. Some people might destroy something valuable especially furniture, they could fight other people and not only fight they also could kill people too. That is why you need to control your anger, and besides letting your anger destroy other people.
