The important thing about Jacques Cartier.

The important thing about Jacques Cartier is that he discovered parts of Canada for France. Jacques studied navigation at a school in Dieppe, Northern France. His studies helped him a lot in his journeys. As a teenager, Cartier was interested in the mountains and rocky cliffs he saw that bordered the Grand Banks.  By 1524, he was able to assist Giovanni da Verrazano, an Italian navigator who worked for France, on an expedition along North America. On that journey, Cartier and the other men were the first ones to visit New York Harbor. Looking for gold and precious rocks, it is possible that he also traveled to Brazil in South America. He did not become wealthy, but his navigation skills were getting stronger. He also ended up marrying Catherine des Granches. But the important thing about Jacques Cartier is that he discovered parts of what is now Canada for France.

Getting the Switch

Now, most times I don’t post twice a day, but I just had to make this clear to you guys. I just got the Nintendo Switch. So for all those non-gamers, the Nintendo Switch is the newest console that came out in the entire world. It has all these different features that no other gaming company has ever master. All the games created on the Switch goes at 60 frames per second!!! And I got the two newest games on the Switch. So, there it is, me getting a Switch. And I may upload a video explaining what the Switch is, and all of it’s special features. Anyway, that’s it for today. Later bloggers.

Whats up world!!!

Hello world!!! My name is Akif and I am nine years old. I live with my Mom and Dad, along with my two sisters. I am in fourth grade.


In my spare time I like to play video games. I’ve always been interested in video games. Ever since I was little my favorite gaming character was Sonic the hedgehog. The first sonic game I ever played  was Sonic lost world, for the 3ds. I was a great way to start my gaming experience. After that, I always had admired Sonic after that. And I still play much more of the games. The latest Sonic game I played was Sonic Mania. I like it  because 1. It has a burst of color every where. 2. I got the version where you can get different mods.3. You can get Super Sonic. At first when I was a kid, I had no idea what was Sonic’s name, so I just called him blue mouse. So you should expect me to post a lot about video games. Well, see you next post!
