Hi welcome to my blog.
Today I am showing you my PBL reflection. PBL Stands for Project Bass Learning.
I did the Ancient Olympics. Here is my reflection I did.


Project Topic: olympic history

Photo/Screenshot of Project (insert below)

Finish these starters:
  • Something I enjoyed about my project was finding new information  because I did not know about them. And it is new learning.

  • The most challenging thing about my project was finding the correct answer    because I would find it but realise that is the wrong information.

  • The main skill I got better at was managing distractions.  I got better at it by when people would try to talk when the teacher talk I just ignored.

  • Something interesting I learnt was in the ancient olympics was that Women weren't allowed to do anything to do with the games.                        

  • What I would most like to change about my project is to a model  because then I can be more creative.

  • I would like to do my next PBL about golf and make a model about it.

Choose three learning muscles and explain how you used them during your PBL.
  1. Absorption because I finished my poster in a day and I wanted to do it again.
  2. Managing distractions when people were making or playing by me I would just still do the work.
  3. Empathy because Tyla had a quiet look at my poster and she had an idea what to do for her poster.

Create a Description of Your Project
This needs to have either video or audio. You can use any app you like. Include a link here. You will embed it as part of your Reflection PBL Blog Post.

My project is about the ancient Olympics. I put on medals but did you know that there were no medals, they used a Olive tree wreath.  I put on some fun facts about the ancient Olympics. Can you spot a wreath on my poster. That's right here it is. There is an ancient lady holding an Olympic torch.

For the start of our PBL we had to pick if we wanted to do a Brochure or a report. I picked a brochure this is what it looks like. 


When the people get a medal they always stand on a stand. But you can only do it if you come 1st 2nd 3rd. If  you come 1st then you get a gold medal but if you come 2nd you get silver and coming 3rd you get bronze. If you come 4th or number after that you get no medal.

When did the Olympic start?
The year it started was 1896
