SOS 17/03/17

We learnt about the definition of Social Action. Which means “Taking steps to “change” things that are wrong in our society, and introducing new ideas, process for doing things better in the future.Each of our team members were working on categories which was putting them in order. Matching the categories with the 4 subjects
  • Fundraising only actions
  • Raising awareness only actions
  • Actions that pressure or lobby the government
  • Actions that fund raise and raise awareness  

The part that we found interesting was when we had to match the categories with the 4 social action subjects. The part we needed assistance with was to try and understand what the definition of some words mean.

Steps to make a paper plane

How to make a paper plane.
Make the main center fold

Step 1) Fold the piece of paper in half. This should bring the two longer sides together.

Fold the top corners to meet at the center.

Step 2) Open up the paper again and then fold the two top outer corners inwards so that they meet along the middle crease.

Fold down the point.

Step 3) Fold the point made in the previous step down to the crease so that the flaps are tucked under this fold. Now the paper should likely look like the back of an envelope.

Fold the New Corners

Step 4) Fold the two top corners created in the last step down to the center line, so that the points are about 2/3 of the way down the center crease of the flap.
