We have just started learning about the American Revolution. I have learned a lot of things these past couple of days, but what I’m most interested in learning more about is The Boston Tea Party. This is because I find it interesting that the colonists would take that risk and get rid of SO much tea!
When I created a colony poster, I learned not to use very many words, and that each person in the colony has something different to say about it, depending on what job they have. When I made my colony, I learned to work together and listen to everyone else’s ideas, since we worked in a group. I also learned that since I was working on the Southern colony, my group and I needed to include things that you would’ve found in the Southern colonies. My poster connects to my colony because I mention that we have very successful crops, and we put lots of crops on the colony. Also, I mention cotton tobacco and corn, and in my colony, we put lots of those crops on it.
After finishing the book “Wonder,” one thing that I’m holding onto and going to remember is that sometimes things can happen that you’re not expecting to happen. You may think that you can’t possibly get an award, but then, you get the best award! Always believe it’s possible because it is, if you try hard enough.
