Kid President! We shared the videos below so that you could watch them. Then, underneath each, we wrote a little bit about what we discussed at the end of each video.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label="Section" fullwidth="off" specialty="off" transparent_background="off" background_color="#f2f3f5" allow_player_pause="off" inner_shadow="off" parallax="off" parallax_method="off" padding_mobile="off" make_fullwidth="off" use_custom_width="off" width_unit="on" make_equal="off" use_custom_gutter="off" gutter_width="3"][et_pb_row admin_label="Row" make_fullwidth="on" use_custom_width="off" width_unit="on" use_custom_gutter="off" gutter_width="3" padding_mobile="off" allow_player_pause="off" parallax="on" parallax_method="off" make_equal="on" parallax_1="off" parallax_method_1="off" parallax_2="off" parallax_method_2="off" column_padding_mobile="on"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_code admin_label="Code"]<style>.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }</style><div class='embed-container'><iframe width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/is5W6GxAI3c?rel=0&showinfo=0' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe></div>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label="Text" saved_tabs="all" background_layout="light" text_orientation="left" text_font_size="16" use_border_color="off" border_color="#ffffff" border_style="solid"]This is the first video that we watched in class. Mr. Avery told us to think about why it is that he would show us this, even though he loves technology. After, we had a discussion about it and talked about how technology can be an amazing tool. It can help us to learn how to do things or to keep in touch with people. But, one student put it best, “Our lives should not be lived through screens.” Although technology is a great tool, it shouldn’t be the only thing that we are focused on in our lives.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_code admin_label="Code"]<style>.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }</style><div class='embed-container'><iframe width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/RwlhUcSGqgs?rel=0&showinfo=0' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe></div>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_text admin_label="Text" saved_tabs="all" background_layout="light" text_orientation="left" text_font_size="16" use_border_color="off" border_color="#ffffff" border_style="solid"]The second video that we watched was one from Kid President. He has a lot of different videos that are all funny but also inspirational. He has a great message about what is most important and how everyone can make a difference. One thing he said that we talked about was that “Everybody’s a teacher and everybody’s a student.” No matter how old you are, we all have knowledge that we can share with others and we should also always take time to learn about things we’re interested in.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label="Section" fullwidth="off" specialty="off" transparent_background="off" background_color="#ffffff" allow_player_pause="off" inner_shadow="off" parallax="on" parallax_method="off" padding_mobile="off" make_fullwidth="off" use_custom_width="off" width_unit="on" make_equal="off" use_custom_gutter="off" gutter_width="3"][et_pb_row admin_label="Row" make_fullwidth="on" use_custom_width="off" width_unit="on" use_custom_gutter="off" gutter_width="3" padding_mobile="off" allow_player_pause="off" parallax="off" parallax_method="off" make_equal="off" parallax_1="off" parallax_method_1="off" column_padding_mobile="on"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text admin_label="Text" saved_tabs="all" background_layout="light" text_orientation="left" text_font_size="16" use_border_color="off" border_color="#ffffff" border_style="solid"]After watching the videos, since we were sitting for so long, Mr. Avery wanted us to have the chance to get up and move around a little bit. So, we played one of his favorite games called Bear, Karate Girl, Indiana Jones. This is a game that he learned from LearnZillion, as all the teachers play it every year at their TeachFest conference. The game is very similar to Rock, Paper, Scissors except for the fact that you don’t use your fists to play, you use your whole body! In the first round, everyone pairs up with somebody. They then stand back-to-back with them and when Mr. Avery counts to three, you have to turn and face the other person in the pose of either a bear, karate girl or Indiana Jones. If you lose, you’re out. If you win or tie you continue on and must find a new person to go against for that round. Sometimes though, we end up with an odd number of people in a round. If we do, Mr. Avery chooses somebody to get a bye and automatically move on to the next round. We keep going round-to-round until we get to a winner. It’s so much fun and definitely a great way to get up and get moving again after sitting for a long time! One class created gifs of each pose to show you how to do them and also so we could explain what beats what.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label="Section" fullwidth="off" specialty="off" transparent_background="off" background_color="#f6f6f6" allow_player_pause="off" inner_shadow="off" parallax="off" parallax_method="off" padding_mobile="off" make_fullwidth="off" use_custom_width="off" width_unit="on" make_equal="off" use_custom_gutter="off" gutter_width="3"][et_pb_row admin_label="Row" make_fullwidth="on" use_custom_width="off" width_unit="on" use_custom_gutter="off" gutter_width="3" padding_mobile="off" background_color="#f6f6f6" allow_player_pause="off" parallax="on" parallax_method="off" make_equal="on" parallax_1="off" parallax_method_1="off" parallax_2="off" parallax_method_2="off" parallax_3="off" parallax_method_3="off" column_padding_mobile="on"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_text admin_label="Text" background_layout="light" text_orientation="left" text_font="Amatic SC|on|||" text_font_size="30" text_text_color="#f56660" use_border_color="off" border_color="#ffffff" border_style="solid"]Bear[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image admin_label="Image" src="https://mravery.edublogs.org/files/2015/09/bear-1jtqvne.gif" show_in_lightbox="off" url_new_window="off" animation="off" sticky="off" align="left" force_fullwidth="off" always_center_on_mobile="on" use_border_color="off" border_color="#ffffff" border_style="solid" title_text="These students are showing the bear.

Not only did we really enjoy our activity and the videos but we also got to hear about all the great things we’ll be doing in class this year. We’re definitely excited to jump back into learning and getting to spend time working with all of our great technology tools![/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label="Section" fullwidth="off" specialty="off" transparent_background="off" background_color="#efefef" allow_player_pause="off" inner_shadow="off" parallax="off" parallax_method="off" padding_mobile="off" make_fullwidth="off" use_custom_width="off" width_unit="on" make_equal="off" use_custom_gutter="off"][et_pb_row admin_label="Row"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_comments admin_label="Comments" show_avatar="off" show_reply="on" show_count="on" background_layout="light" form_background_color="rgba(255,255,255,0)" meta_text_color="#757575" body_text_color="#757575" form_field_text_color="#757575" use_border_color="on" border_color="#757575" border_width="2px" border_style="solid" custom_button="off" button_letter_spacing="0" button_use_icon="default" button_icon_placement="right" button_on_hover="on" button_letter_spacing_hover="0" saved_tabs="all" global_module="6974"] [/et_pb_comments][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]]]>
