Week 9/10 Reflection
These two weeks Hamish, Sean, Sam and I a designing a model of a playground. What is working well is that we are finished and it turned out pretty good. A struggle for me was that not everyone in the group pulled their weight. An improvement I could make would be to organise my group better and give them specific jobs to do and a time frame. My next step is to work with a person that is at the same level of working standard.
This week Hamish, Sean, Sam and I worked on our playground that I shows how everyday playground equipment uses push and pull.
I learnt that sometime our group get side tracked and don't help/ do their part. I also learnt that I should not let as many people use my hot glue gun.
I wonder what would happen if our whole worked on the project at one time would we get work done.
