Character Traits Letter

Dear Ms.Boyer,

 

Today I will be introducing you to the character Ruth Handler. She was the person who created Barbie dolls. I think to do that she would have to be very creative because Barbie is so popular so she had to make sure it stayed popular she had to make sure there were new clothing/hair coming up all the time and she was the person who had to do that alot. I think another trait she has is hard-working. I think that because at first her store only sold jewelry and plastic candles but she worked hard enough to be able to turn her company into a famous toy company that was very successful! I think another important trait Ruth Handler has is passion and perseverance. I think that because she never gave up on her dreams of creating dolls that were not just for playing but for being role models for girls. Ruth wanted Barbies to be an influence for girls to tell them they can be anything they want to be. I hope  this information was helpful.

 

yours sincerely,

Isabella

 

 

Barbies have changed in time

Once upon a time there was a rich man who loved listening to music. He was always very mad. He took pills to make him happy again but he became too happy and exploded. When he came back to life he landed in Egypt at midnight. Once he was in Egypt, he started to cry so he threw a ball up in the air and it made him feel a little bit better. The wanted to get back to his mansion so he took a job as a weightlifter. After he had enough money he bought an iPhone and called his servant. His servant came to pick him up in a parashoot. And he lived a normal life.

Maglev#2

Today in science we made maglev trains. A maglev train is a train that levitates by magnetic repulsion. I worked in a group. Our idea for the train track was to put strip magnets with disk magnets on top and the same thing for the train.

That did not work. The problem was that the magnets on the track were flipping over and attracting. So we asked for help. That is when we got the idea to tape the disk magnets on so it would not flip over. It did not work. At that point I was starting to think we could not do it but I tried one more time. That time we took off all the strip magnets on everything. 

Sadly when we tested it did not work. I feel like on these tries my group needed to help each other more. Finally on the fifth try we got it. On that try we did everything with strip magnets the track had about 8 magnets divided equally on each side. On the train we did the same thing but only with 2 magnets divided equally. 

The next step was putting weight on the train. My group wanted to start off easy so we started with two. Eventually we made our way to thirty six weights. Overall I liked this experiment.

Electromagnet vs Permanent

Today in science we were testing electromagnets to see if it could attract with a certain amount of wire. I learned that electromagnets are temporary magnets and that the can attract to anything a regular magnet could attract to.Ms. Boyer asked the class to come up with questions one of mine is are there magnets that only repel or can you turn a permanent magnet into a temporary magnet. Overall I loved this project.

Electric Circuits

Today in science we made electric circuits. I worked with my science partner. We learned how to make an electric circuit. First we had to wrap wire around a bolt. That was hard because we had to make sure we did not overlap the wire. Then we had to connect the wire to the battery holder. That part was hard so we had to ask for help. After we got that done it was an electromagnet. The last part was testing. To do that we had to grab some paperclips and get to testing. When we did that our record was 33 paperclips. Overall I loved this project.

 

 

Science with Magnets

Today in science with magnets I learned that to make some magnets repel you have to put the corner to the to the flat side. I also learned that shaved iron can attract through plastic. During the lesson we had stations to go to. When I went to station two I found out how to control a magnet repelling. That was my favorite station. Overall I loved this experience.

 

Camping with Friends

Camping With Friends

One morning I was sitting in the car drinking chocolate milk . Most of the time in the car I would be playing on my ipad Once my ipad was dead I whined to my dad “daddy I’m dead”. After three hours of waiting playing and staring out the window there was a sign that said Dingmans Camp Site directly my dad turned the wheel.

My dad parked at a parking lot at a pretty big shed. I asked my dad ” why do we have to check in” . My dad just kept on walking.When we got in the shed on the shelves there were mountains of candy then I looked back at my dad and begged “please please please can I have a crystal lollipop after lunch “. My dad answered “yes of course”.Then I ran to find four crystal lollipops I got three dark blue lollipops for me and my friends Stella and Maria and one light blue (which barely has any flavor) for my friends little brother. I rushed to the car while pulling my dad to the car. He was so heavy.

Then my dad pulled out a map and we were moving. Once we finally got to our spot I looked out the window our spot was a cool place it had two campfires a huge table and a hammock.Then I raced out of the car and stopped. I heard something , something that sounded like talking it was coming from the other tent.

Then I slowly tiptoed to Stella’s tent opened the zipper just enough for me to see my friends. Then I opened the zipper just enough for me to hop in the tent. After we said hello, I asked them to help me unpack. A few seconds after I saw my dad opened the car that is when I saw my chance. I rushed to the car my friends helped me to take all the bags out. When they saw how much backpacks I brought their jaws dropped. When I was bringing the bags to our place I remembered something my dad did not finish building the tent. 

Directly I rushed to my dad and offered to help building the tent. It was hard but finally I did it. Next I rushed back to the bags and dragged them in the tent. After that someone called lunch time then I rushed to the table. I was so hungry. I wondered what lunch would be. On the table I saw hotdog. I grabbed a hotdog and ate it as fast as could . My friends had the same idea.

Then we decided to play a game called Sleeping Queens. The game went on for about ten minutes until Maria mom called”do you want to head over to the lake with me”? At first I wanted to say no but when I heard all my friends were going I decided to tag along. At the lake Stella wet fishing while me and Maria were walking on the rocks and claiming rock islands. I think that was the best part of camping. This is how we did it. At first we were just walking on rocks but then I said”why don’t we go closer to the water”. Maria answered” what if we get wet” I said “but we are wearing shorts so it doesn’t matter anyway”. 

Next we started walking deeper. It was not so deep.When we got to the rock island we claimed it ourers. After we claimed all the islands when we were coming back to the main island both of us slipped on seaweed but it did not matter. Then to finish our business up we saw some kids there to so we pretended to be mermaids. After a lot of time we heard Maria’s mom say “we are coming back to the tents”. We answered “ok” then we were off.

It was starting to get dark so I decided to do the last thing I wanted to do. I wanted to make a s’more pizza. I did not have to stop at a supermarket to find one because I already brought the ingredients .So we started  baking. First we put chocolate syrup. Then we put on marshmallows and crumbs of graham crackers. Last we put it over the fire for about fifteen minutes. It tasted so good.I think it was the best camping trip ever!
