On October 31, at the site of gym 228 at f.e madill high school Mr.westra and the 8A class were completely pummeled to the ground by Mrs. durnin and the 8B class. In the most epic bobbing for apples duel in history. Mrs.durnin’s great idea to get some easy bragging rights over Mr.westra’s class by challenging them to a bobbing for apples duel. 2 students came up for a head on head battle literally and started bobbing for apples. After the duel we made a google spreadsheet to graph the data for a math project to see who the winner was, though we already knew that we won. we did this to collect data for a math project, and to have fun with an old Halloween tradition.
Based on the data in the charts I conclude that 8B got more their first apple quicker then 8A. 8B got 4 of their first apples in 0-15 seconds not much of a surprize though, well 8A got only 3 of theirs in 0-15 seconds. I can also conclude that 8B got more total number of apples then 8A. 8B got 28 apples or 70 % of the apples collected, well 8A got 12 apples or 30 % of the apples collected I say it was pure luck of the draw for them though.
A strategy our team used was to push the apples to the corners instead of in the middle,we thought that would be easier. A second strategy we used was to not be afraid to push the opponent’s head out of the way for an apple, not that we meant to hurt them though.
After collecting the data, and watching the suspenseful duel I am 100% sure that the winner of the BFA duel is …. 8B. 8B won with the stupendously large, but foretold victory 8A never had a chance in my perspective. 8A were good competition though.

Hello, I’m Jacob this is my second year in the Idea Hive The Idea Hive is 2 classes that work together despite being 2700 km apart from each other, one class from Wingham, Ontario and one from Snow lake, Manitoba. Working together to see what it is like to collaborate even though you’re not in the same room. We work together via Skype and on Google Docs. So far the only work we have done is that we have answered an interest survey to find out similarities and differences that we have. It should be a fun year what do you think ?
Something I have in common with most people from Snow Lake is that we like watch The Big Bang Theory. Those people would be Gamer 99, Emily, Evan and Juli. My favorite character is Sheldon because he acts so dumb for someone who is a scientist. I wonder who their favorite character in the show is.
Something I have in common with only a few people is we don’t play an instrument, those people would be Emily and gamer99.
Something unique about me is that for a career I would like to be an architect. It is a fun job with an amazing pay. Theres lots of thing I have in common with the kids in Snow Lake.
The person I’m most like from Snow Lake is Emily. Emily and I both like The Big Bang Theory, reading, we don’t have a pet, don’t play an instrument and, are humorous. Emily and I have lots of similarities, but we also have lots of differences.
The Snow Lake kids and I have lots of similarities, but we also have lots of differences. A question I have for you is what fun activities do you think we will do in the Idea Hive this year?
