Pokemon Go! My Feature Article

In class we made feature articles for a month. When I was making my feature article Pokemon Go the process was really fun and challenging.  This process was challenging because it was hard to organize and it took a long time.  I enjoyed the process on writing this feature article because I know a lot about the topic and it is interesting to me.

My Feature Article

Animal Cloning

I just read an article about animal cloning and I am going to tell you why I disagree with the cloning. I do not like animal cloning because when it clones the clone could have side effects which could affect their lives. One good thing about cloning is that the animal can have another life.

Rocketry Presentation

On December 5th we did our rocketry presentations. It was when we presented our slides from rocketry to our parents. Luckily we practiced with each other and my class. So when December 5th came I was shocked because it was the day we were going to present. I was so nervous and shy and mixed emotions that I can’t explain but at the same time I felt good. I was like at least we are doing it today. But I got nervous again when I heard that we were going FIRST. Then when we started to present my cheeks started to get red and before I knew it, it was my turn. But, it went well, and I was happy enough to do the other slides calm. And after it was done. I was happy we did it.

Overall, the presentation went well. I was a little nervous but I really liked it.

The Dakota Oil Pipe Line

The Dakota oil pipe line could be good but at the same time be bad. Here is one reason why it is good. It transfers oil from place to place quicker and better. The bad reason is that when the oil goes through the pipe line it ruins the environment and farmers in Iowa are also worried because, it can ruin there soil and take up their land. Another reason why it is bad is that the oil pipe line run’s through the native american’s property and it will ruin everything, they never even had a chance to agree or disagree.

Peter in Pax

In the book Pax there is a character named Peter. Peter is a non giving up person and willing to do whatever it takes to find Pax he’s pet fox. How it all started is when Peter’s dad had to go to war and they had to abandon Pax on the side of the road. Peter got so sad and angry he ran away from his grandpa’s house in the break of dawn. Once he get’s in his journey he breaks his ankle on someone’s property. The person’s property was Viola’s. At first Viola get’s mad at Peter asking what he was doing there. But when they get to know each other Viola start’s to get nice and partly funny. Viola was also a doctor in the war and fixed Peter’s ankle but it still needs some rest so Viola gives Peter crutches. Peter suddenly thinks of Pax and tries to go find him again but Viola told him that he needs to stay until his foot heals. This means that Peter is really desperate to find Pax.

Sphero

The Sphero was really fun to use. It is a little robot you program to make them move or talk ect. We programed the Sphero on iPads to make them move. When we got the Sphero’s I was like “Cool! Sphero’s.” Then after lunch a teacher walked in and said that she is going to teach us about the Sphero’s. When we got the iPads our teacher sent us into groups. I got Leo and Luc. We were so happy that we were together. Then after we logged into the app that we were supposed to program the Sphero’s we had to watch a video, it was an introduction. And then after the video we went to the meeting room to actually start programming them. Once we got to the meeting room me and my group just went into a spot and started programing it. After a bit of fun the teacher challenged us to program the robot to move in a strait line. That was hard because if you want to program the Sphero you need to know the speed the seconds it’s going to last the angle to turn and the aim so it go’s into a strait line. That part was really challenging but then the teacher made a harder challenge. In the meeting room there are squares on the ground. She said to make the robot go around the whole square. This was really hard because we had to make the robot stay in the lines going all the way around. With the programing me and my team knew this was going to be hard. We took multiple tries but we did it right when class stopped.

 

Overall this project was really fun but challenging.

Philadelphia School Trip

As a field trip I went to Philadelphia. But, I had to wake up at four forty five, but it was totally worth it! I had so much fun on the way there because first of all on the bus I was talking to my friends for three hours and fifteen minutes! Then I was excited about how much fun we are going to have there,  and one more thing, I was excited for the way back because I can talk to my friends again!

At the Philadelphia trip when we got there we met our counselor but I forgot what her name was. She was explaining all these historical stuff and how old they were and what use they had. We were going into a building and I was relived because I started to get really hot. In side we saw another man. And he explained about people’s spots and why certain people went where but there was something really funny, there was someone really famous who I think was Alexander Hamilton and people had to wait until they could talk to him. But this guy had no patience and slid down a pole to meet him first. In my opinion it was funny.

At the Philadelphia trip we were walking to something really important, it was called the Liberty Bell, it was rung every time to celebrate George Washington. It was really cool and there was a lot of cool pictures and artifacts about famous people down an aisle until you see the Liberty Bell. We stopped for a lot of them. After the Liberty Bell Finally we ate lunch and that was really fun because I spoke to my friends again and I was hungry so I was glad that we ate.Then after lunch we went to another guy who explained us the Declaration of Independence. we talked about who signed it and about We the People. I think that was the most interesting part. And after that we saw a play. Well it wasn’t really a play it was only one person speaking a lot about the whole time period around that time, she explained everything but some of the stuff we already heard but I was fine with it. After that crazy day of home we were going home. We walked and walked and then got to the buses. Overall the trip was super fun and I learned a lot!

 

Trump Election Winner

My opinions of Donald Trump is that he is going to be harsh, but since he is a republican he can help doctors and other jobs earn more money and do less work. The bad part is that no one knows what he could do to the U.S. he could bad and good stuff. My opinion is that it is 50/50.

I have one thought about Donald Trump right now, will he really build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico and if he does how will he get Mexico to pay for it? That’s really my only thought for now.

I have a couple questions to ask about Donald Trump, will he build a wall between Mexico and the U.S.? How will he make them pay for it? Is he going America great again? Is he going to remove Obama care?

I wonder that if Donald Trump will be a good president or bad president. I always wondered how he will make America great again.

 

Grouping the characters in PAX (by chapter 6)

We are reading the book Pax. Right now we are in chapter 6. These are the characters we have come across.

Main Characters:

Peter

Pax

Secondary Characters:

Dad

Grandpa

Bristle

Runt

 

I would put it in this order because the main characters Pax and Peter show up mainly in the story and they basically make the story. The secondary characters go along with the story so they make the story go along.
