Creative Ideas

State your creative assignment ideas here for the organic garden, permaculture, sustainability, worm farming and composting.
Or come up with a clever creative homework assignment to do with behavioural enrichment for the budgies or rats.
Or, suggest something innovative or creative to do with studying the Olympics.
Consider the various "multiple intelligences" or Bloom's Taxonomy when you think about designing a task. What level of task is this? Designing a project would be...?

WE could have an in class BP challenge. (Do people know what that is???) If you dont know what it is, its a challenge, were you get a limited amount of supplies and time, and you have to make something. In this instance it could be a rat sort a tunnel race, or a budgie toy/stand!
By the way, Sorry mudpies about the hair!!! (I feel really bad, sowwy!!!)

That's awesome rosie! I have an idea for the worming and organic stuff:
CLEAN OUT all the stuff we don't need.
UNDUST the greenhouse, it will be the death of me.
WEED OUT the greenhouse.
MOP, SWEEP and WASH the greenhouse.
THEN we may PLANT, and make a SCHEDULE for when we water, plant, and pick up the FRUIT from plants, the ROOTS and the LEAVES.
That is what I have been trying to say. I feel that we have gone on without doing simple stuff like seriously cleaning, making it look better and so on.

Budgie/rat idea: We could make a collague of photos of the animals we have, and us, and make a collague to hang on the wall. It will represent us.

mudpies02 said...

Yes, I agree Neina. It won't be as easy to look after the plants now because we have to concentrate on the cleaning!

Yes, I like your idea rosiegal!! We could get loads of sport supplies and make a new Olympic game!!

P.S.
Don't feel bad about the hair :o)

mudpies02 said...

I think I like this icon better. Which do you like? The zebra or Bugs, Sylvester and Daffy?

rosiegal said...

THat is such a cute pic Emily, you should keep it!!! Yess, those two idea's i really like!! THe olypic sport thingy could be P.E, and the pet collage could eb a fun art activitie!!! That would be fun!!

gnome said...

I think we should possibly have an assignment where we have to think about how life would be if we were budgies or rats. For example we could write a diary lasting for a month I think it would be pretty fun.

gnome said...

This time I really was the first male to comment lol!

rosiegal said...

Sorry, but I was the first female to post!!!!! lol(AS YOU SAID!)
Thats a good idea, it wuld be really fun, and we could learn writing skills! But maybe not a month, perhaps just a week!

rosiegal said...

Hey, I just had a thought, maybe the creed that we like the most (we could vote in class) could be the comment under the title. (I mean the one that is in front of the picture, the picture you first see when you go on the blog) I really like candy canes one! it is down the bottom of the creed post, and it is an awesome rhymey thing!!!

Dreamhuntress said...

Yes Nenia we should weed, dust,sweep e.c.t in the greenhouse and re-sellotape
the holes in the greenhouse The most annoying
thing is when I was walking in the greenhouse and I nearly tripped over a wooden stump, I say we saw it off.

Good idear Rosiegal! We could have a mini class BP challange, and we could have a art type challange like making clay sculptures of budgies and rats or something else.

Queenie said...

I've got a few ideas about the olympics:
We could make a board game about the olympcs. That would be fun to do! We could also design a city that the olympics coul be held in. One more idea was we could make up an event that could be in the olympics.
see ya tomorrow
bye!

This is completely random and I'm sorry.

Why Did The Chicken Crossed the Road?

Plato
For the greater good.

Karl Marx
It was a historical inevitability.

Machiavelli
So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road, but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained.

Hippocrates
Because of an excess of light pink gooey stuff in its pancreas.

Jacques Derrida
Any number of contending discourses may be discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid as the authorial intent can never be discerned, because structuralism is dead.

Noam Chomsky
The chicken didn't exactly cross the road. As of 1994, something like 99.8% of all US chickens reaching maturity that year had spent 82% of their lives in confinement. The living conditions in most chicken coops break every international law ever written, and some, particularly the ones for chickens bound for slaughter, border on inhumane. My point is, they had no chance to cross the road (unless you count the ride to the supermarket). Even if one or two have crossed roads for whatever reason, most never get a chance. Of course, this is not what we are told. Instead, we see chickens happily dancing around on Sesame Street and Foster Farms commercials where chickens are not only crossing roads, but driving trucks (incidentally, Foster Farms is owned by the same people who own the Foster Freeze chain, a subsidiary of the dairy industry). Anyway, ... (Chomsky continues for 32 pages. For the full text of his answer, contact Odonian Press)

Thomas de Torquemada
Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out.

Timothy Leary
Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment would let it take.

Douglas Adams
Forty-two.

Nietzsche
Because if you gaze too long across the road, the road gazes also across you.

Oliver North
National Security was at stake.

B.F. Skinner
Because the external influences which had pervaded its sensorium from birth had caused it to develop in such a fashion that it would tend to cross roads, even while believing these actions to be of its own free will.

Carl Jung
The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that individual chickens cross roads at this historical juncture, and therefore synchronicitously brought such occurrences into being.

Jean-Paul Sartre
In order to act in good faith and be true to itself, the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.

Ludwig Wittgenstein
The possibility of crossing was encoded into the objects chicken and road, and circumstances came into being which caused the actualization of this potential occurrence.

Albert Einstein
Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.

Aristotle
To actualize its potential.

Buddha
If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken-nature.

Howard Cosell
It may very well have been one of the most astonishing events to grace the annals of history. An historic, unprecedented avian biped with the temerity to attempt such an herculean achievement formerly relegated to homo sapien pedestrians is truly a remarkable occurrence.

Salvador Dali
The Fish.

Darwin
It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.

Emily Dickinson
Because it could not stop for death.

Epicurus
For fun.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
It didn't cross the road; it transcended it.

Goethe
The eternal hen-principle made it do it.

Ernest Hemingway
To die. In the rain.

Werner Heisenberg
We are not sure which side of the road the chicken was on, butit was moving very fast.

David Hume
Out of custom and habit.

Saddam Hussein
This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.

Jack Nicholson
Cause it wanted to.

Pyrrho the Skeptic
What road?

Ronald Reagan
I forget.

Henry David Thoreau
To live deliberately ... and suck all the marrow out of life.

Mark Twain
The news of its crossing has been greatly exaggerated.

Katherine McKinnon
Because, in this patriarchial state, for the last four centuries, men have applied their principles of justice in determining how chickens should be cared for, their language has demeaned the identity of the chicken, their technonogy and trucks have decided how and where chickens will be distributed, their science has become the basis for what chickens eat, their sense of humor has provided the framework for this joke, their art and film have given us our perception of chicken life, their lust for flesh has made the chicken the most consumed animal in the US, and their legal system has left the chicken with no other recourse.

Stephen Jay Gould
It is possible that there is a sociobiological explanation for it, but we have been deluged in recent years with sociobiological stories despite the fact that we have little direct evidence about the genetics of behavior, and we do not know how to obtain it for the specific behaviors that figure most prominently in sociobiological speculation.

Joseph Stalin
I don't care. Catch it. I need its eggs to make my omlette.

Malcom X
It was coming home to roost.

Fernando Henrique Cardoso (by VWS)
Because it was going to be privatized

Paulo Maluf (by VWS)
It was my gift to a neighbor who promised to vote for me.

Sigmund Freund
To maximize the libido.

Georg Friedrich Hegel
Thesis: to be on this side. Antithesis: to be on the other side. Synthesis: cross the road.

Gottlieb Fichte
It's the only action a chicken can do to become aware of itself.

Rudolf Steiner
It was crossing the threshold.

Richard von Weizs├Ącker
As a middleuropean chicken it fulfills its challenge: connect east and west.

Michail Gorbatchov
Glasnost: Everyone can see, the chicken does not follow the mainstream (as usual traffic does) but crosses(!) the road.

Boris Yeltsin
Unfortunately he is too drunken, so he dreaming of roasted chicken.

Fidel Castro
He's was an idiot! My sources inform me that he's already a chickenburger in McDonald's, Miami.

Scarlett O'Hara
If y'all couldn't keep him, honey, don't blame me.

Tommy Lee Jones
Don't worry, I'll get 'im back - quick, dead or alive!

Bishop Berkley
The question is irrelevant. It crossed the road to the other side and is no longer visible, therefore doesn't exist.

Sorel Kierkegaard
It was faced with an either/or decision: to stay on this side and despair, eventually commit suicide, or cross over to where there is at least hope, as any thinking chicken would do.

Emmanuel Kant
We cannot know whether the chicken "an sich" crossed the road or not. It only appears to be so.

Ronald McDonald
To jump into the frying pan and become a Big Chicken Mac.

Pretty strange.

Miss Piggy said...

Hey, I'm not going to be coming to school tommorrow because I have some ear problems and I have to go to the doctors. I was changing my earrings (which I haven't done in a while) and I pulled out my earring from the front, and the butterfly (The thing that sits behind your ear and holds the earring on) came out through the front of my ear and ripped a hole in my ear! And it was because the skin at the back had grown over the butterfly and now my other ear's earring has grown skin over that to so there is a butterfly inside my ear and we can't get my earring out unless we rip another hole in my ear! eew!

Miss Piggy said...

I really like Rosie gal's idea, to do the BP challenge, it sounds so fun!

Roo said...

We could plan, design and created the perfect budgie toy.

rosiegal said...

Whart a randomly long and long and longer and even longer than longer post kerli, I only read some parts and they were kind of funny, but too long for me to read!!!!!!! LOL

Dreamhuntress said...

Good idear chickenfeety!

Tweedle Dum Plum said...

i have a really cool idea lets just hope it works lol!!!

mudpies02 said...

Of course kerli! The chicken crossed the road for fun! He had to have SOME fun before he was made into a chicken burger at McDonalds/Burger King/KFC/Burger fuel/any other fast food place that sells chicken.

P.S.
I had to add all the other fast food places so that I wasn't giving McDonalds all the blame and stereotyping the situation. Did I use that word correctly???

Oh oh oh! We could hang flowers in baskets inside the greenhouse to make it look prettier, give it a colourful aspect, and, we need a bit more girlysih things! I may (MAY MAY MAY) have something for you about pretty hangings and so forth on my blog. The main one. I do know, at the preschool my Mum works at, the hanging baskets are so low you hit your head on them if you are not careful, and it hurts!
