power plays a big role in refuge like when Joseph has to take the role of adult because Hitler wants them out and his mom and dad have gone crazy and Isabelle has to help her mom because she is having a baby and trying to get away from the coast gard and when mamuded was in the sea they all had to be adult so the didn’t drown.

refugee #2

In the book refugee the narrator changes from main character to main character every chapter. I think that the author did that because he likes cliffhangers and it affects the readers by making them tense.

Philly trip

November 9th 2018.


The fifth graders of Heathcote elementary school went on their trip to Philly. The fifth graders exited the bus and into the pouring rain running into the Constitution Center trying to be dry. The first exhibit that they saw was a Hamilton exhibit it was on limited time so the 5th graders were lucky the 5th graders spread out in ah the parents taking pictures.

After that the fifth grade went to the signers Hall where they saw big life-size Bronze Statues of the people who signed the Constitution. Next they went to the first show living news the show was about the rights of the Constitution. 5th grader Danny “says that he learned a lot and it was pretty cool.” The show was super popular the entire week was sold out.

After the show the fifth graders got 10 minutes to look at the main exhibit. There were voting booth where you could vote and there was a Mini model of Capitol Hill the White House and the Supreme Court. Also there was a giant TV like cylinder. It showed all the faces of famous people. you could add your own face onto the TV. 5th grader Eli said “I really like how you put it put your face on it it’s really cool.”

After ten minutes the 5th grade went to the second show Freedom Rising. There were tons of seats and there was a giant projector that projected images on the walls and in the middle of the theater. The show itself was about the rights of the Constitution and famous people who wrote it, for example Benjamin Franklin. After that all the 5th grade class went down to eat lunch. 5th grader Brian says that the morning was great and from this reporter’s opinion I think so to.

plant post #2

Our group has been taking care of our manipulated it is 8 and a 1/2 centimeters! The leaves of our plant is about 2 centimeters. We are starting to get buds. Our teacher said we are almost ready to start pollinating the plants.


I think it has buds because it is getting a lot of sunlight


Our group has been looking at the manipulated one to. It is about 9cms. There are a lot of buds. Its leaning sideways a little.


I think the manipulated one is leaning because it is trying to get light.
