I wrote a persuasive essay on something that I think people should do. I thought that we should have more technology in school and I did my essay on that.
I did two projects today. A crystal, using Borax and some string and putting it into water. The other project is something called a Shrinky-dink. You color on plastic and then you put it onto a oven tray and it becomes smaller and you can use it as a ornament or put it on a necklace. They were really fun to do.
I made a inquiry project about the Salem Witch Trials. They happened in Salem in 1692-1693. watch it to find out more info.
We watched a kid president video and it talked about something called Book It Forward. They want you to put a picture on social media with you and your favorite book that inspired you with the #bookitforward so other people will want to read that and it may inspire them. They are hoping to get 10,000 people doing it worldwide. I am doing Amulet #1 and it inspired me to be AWESOME. OK, what it inspired me about is never underestimate anyone because everyone has something special in them. It's a great book. It is a cool graphic novel by Kazu Kibuishi. You should read them there is six books in the series so far. Great book.
I did a R.A.F.T. on Roanoke, a early colony. I was playing the role of John White and I wrote a journal in a style he might write it in. Here it is!
We set sail to a new land today. We found out that the land had food and friendly people. We came back to tell them that. We decided to make a colony. I became the leader of the colony. We ran out of food and supplies because the people we brought couldn't farm.
We got more prepared today with 100 more workers. I am going back for supplies. I can’t get back with the supplies. There is a war here. It isn’t safe to go back and the war is getting worse. The war is starting to end. I think it’’s almost time for me to go back.
I can finally get back. They are gone. The only thing they left is CROATOAN carved into a post. There is a bad storm. I must go. They aren’t here and the storm is getting worse. I hope we can find them. I wish we could stay, but we can’t search and the storm is almost here.
It's the first day of school after thanksgiving break so no more extra food :-\ . SO MUCH FOOD! Anyway, I had so much fun. We always go to Thanksgiving at my grandparent's house. We also have early Christmas there because we can't all be together at Christmas. We also went sledding and drove the four-wheelers around the farm. I can't wait for the next Thanksgiving! B) Then the rest of break I just played video games and I played with my friends in the snow and watched T.V. all day. I LOVE THANKSGIVING BREAK!!! It's so fun to just have some time off from school to have time with family and friends and to EAT A LOT. Thanksgiving is so fun.
