The Whirligig Project

By Karolina and Hanna

Inquiry Question

HOW DOES THE INFLUENCE OF OTHERS IMPACT OUR OWN LIVES?

“A teacher lives forever through his students.”

Teachers leave powerful legacies. Good work habits, sayings that have always stayed with us, the patience to teach us and believing in us more than anyone has.

"Fairytale or Reality?"

Terry Fox, still lives on, inspiring and influencing us.

“We never know all the consequences of our acts. They reach into places we can’t see. And into the future, where no one can.”

We are always influencing others with our actions even to people we don't know. They lead us and others to paths and forks in the road newly discovered.

Walking After Midnight

Think about it, how do you affect others?

“In his mind, his whirligigs were meshed the same way, parts of a single coast to coast creation. The world itself was a whirligig, its myriad parts invisibly linked, the hidden crankshafts and connecting rods carrying motion across the globe and over the centuries.”

Actions create after effects.

Rube Goldberg Machine

Shakespeare

Gutenberg Press

Atomic Bomb

 “They want us to laugh all the laughs that were taken away from them.”

Enjoy life in every moment, in every way. People have sacrificed their lives so we could live on and be happy. 

Wars

Hana's Suitcase

We are impacted through history, emotions, actions and time. We are influenced by EVERYTHING.

Poem from Jenny

The things you taught me

The things you’ve lost

I’ll always recall life

Comes with a wavering cost

You suffered more than much

But never ceased to smile

Leaving a soft, light touch

Upon my hearts aisle

Now I know to enjoy

Even when we struggle for breath

Just as you had

As you lay on your death bed

I'll miss you dearly

Remembering the moments

You loved life sincerely

Imagining the ones you’ll always share with me

INTERCONNECTEDNESS

River Styx

"The bus was his ferry across the river Styx." 

SELF-IDENTITY AND JOURNEY

My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean

“He claimed one of the rockers, took out his harmonica, and began work on memorizing, 'My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.’”

INTERCONNECTEDNESS AND UNSEEN FORCES

“It was like a car breaking down. We quit without ever playing the second section. People made themselves clap. My mother just looked down at the floor.” 

“For them the bus was an interlude; for him, it was home.”

 “Instead of hearing the baby’s voice, she turned on the T.V. and let it talk all day long.”

“His second life had eclipsed his first. It’s moment of birth had been the crash.”

“That thoughts are powerful. That they’re the seeds of events. That by thinking something, we can help make it happen.”

“They are the pawns. You are a king.”

IN CONCLUSION

We understand that we have the power over ourselves and over others. We need to respect and acknowlegde that power by thinking about the consequences of our actions.
