Grand Prize winner Animation by The Animation School

What questions came to your mind while watching this video? What did you think the ‘main idea’ was? Who are the main characters and what characteristics would you use to describe these characters? (Can you think about any evidence) Challenge #1: How long ago do you think setting was for this video? Challenge #2: The title ‘wing it’ is also figurative language (an idiom), do you know what ‘wing it’ it means? And lastly, any guesses about our NEW Inquiry topic for Term 4?

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I would like to invent something that would be useful to the world and be very popular. I might invent a flying car so there wouldn’t be a lot of traffic and doesn’t cause pollution to the world. Who knows what I’m going invent when I grow up?

    Dear Miss Murphy,

    I thought in my mind that it feels very long ago
    and I also thought he was a inventor.
    The main idea was inventing things.
    The main characters was Sherman and the aliens.
    I liked this video.

    Dear Miss Muphy,

    I know what is our topic it is inventing.

    How did he build the bout/plane sooooooo fast!!!!!!?

    In tasks work me and the boys build the robot we made the front of the arms the ears and we made the back of the arm conect to the ears to the back of the arm for the ears.
    I had lots of fun when I went to tasks works. My favourite is when we put the peds in the holes and we won two times out of three and our highest record was 52.3 seconds.

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    The main idea was invention and the main charaacter was Sherman and the Aliens. I think the setting was at 1923. I also think that i thing wing it means flying a helicpter or a airoplane means wing and [it] means that he invented it and flew it i think i am not sure only 2 0/0 sure.

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I think the characteristic of Sherman is that he was determined. He never gave up and tried to perfect his invention. I hope we make at least one thing that would make our lives easier. I’m sure we should not give up even if we are not inventing anything. I would like to learn about the Internet. How does it go in my iPad?

    dear Miss Murphy,

    I really liked Sherman inventions and it’s soooooo creative.
    I can’t believe we can understand it but there’s no speaking I like it when you give us to look at these types of videos because I like guessing what’s happening.When you were a child did you wanted to be a inventor? πŸ™‚
    Did you like all the inventions that Sherman made? πŸ™‚
    Do think he’s creative? πŸ™‚
    If you were a inventor what will you invent that has NOT bean made before and why? πŸ™‚
