Rocketry reflection

Rocketry was awesome. I was waiting for the project in 4th grade and now it came. The building process was pretty fun but taping it together was annoying. When we were building I was already thinking about our launch. We also had to do practice using the clinometer which was really fun. The clinometer is the tool that we measure the angle of the rocket with. Our rocket was very successful but stressful at the same time. It was stressful because when I was pressing the button I did not press it hard enough and it did not launch but I just needed to press it again. Our first launch was very successful we got 16.5 and I was pretty happy but I thought we could do better. After the first launch, we decided to fix the nose cone because it was dented. Fixing our rocket was key because we needed a better launch for attempt #2. After our second launch, I was very surprised but amused at the same time because it turned out our adjustments actually made attempt #2 worse. We got 5.5, honestly, I did not care because I had a lot of fun overall. If I could change anything about the project I would change our rocket body because I would like to see if it affects the launch at all. For example, if the rocket goes higher because it is skinnier and lightweight or something like that.  In total all of the groups did great and none of them did not launch so it was pretty good. I thought the project was a great way to start the year off.\

Building my colony- As a colonist

Building our colony took a while there were a few problems but in the end I felt like all the weight from everything I carried was lifted off my shoulders. Even though the things I carried were terrible heavy It was not so bad because William was always there to help me. The big house took the longest to build because the plantation owners wanted everything perfect. I was kind of uncomfortable building the roof of the big house because I am afraid of heights and as you know the big house is very tall. Over the weeks of building our colonies I got used to the schedule which was harsh but I knew we had to push ourselves to finish building otherwise we wouldn’t be able to survive much longer in our colony. We had to get up at dawn and work til dusk so we did not have any free time. I was surprised that the children had to work half the day because that is a lot of work for a child in the colony.

Sam and Dave dig a hole

This book Sam and Dave dig a hole teaches one big life lesson. When your trying to do a project, it is not about the end project it is about the journey for example the problems and solutions that you come up with. Throughout the story Sam and Dave showed a lot of determination and even though they did not end up where they wanted to they still had a good time. They took a lot of risks and I can compare that to my own life. For example One time when I was in Hawaii we paddled out to this island and I was really scared because I did not want to jump off the cliff. But through it all I jumped off and was amazed at the rush of adrenaline and excitement that was running through me.

Only One You

I hope that this phenomenal book is shared with future generations.The amazing last page of motivation makes me feel happy inside. This phenomenal book stands out just like it’s words and I think that this book will motivate people today and this book will be shared with future generations.The amazing book makes me think of heal the world by Michael Jackson and some of the words have something in common with the last page.

 

This book made me feel like I could be doing a lot more in this world of wonders.I think that if the Native Americans had this book they would share it for more generations and learn from it’s words so that their children can share more words of wisdom.

 

I for one hope that this amazing book will motivate people today to write six word memoirs and those six word memoirs will inspire even more people for whatever they’re about.When we read this book all together as a class all I thought about was friendship and motivation.I hope my presentation encourages whoever reads this to read Only One You.

My Grandparents

My Grandparents

By Turner

To start off my Grandparents are so sweet to everyone in our family and never try to argue.My grandparents always,especially my grandma give really good birthday presents.I really like when my whole family goes to their house to celebrate Christmas, because everyone is so happy.We have really good friends in Canada and their not my grandparents grandchildren but they still visit them and are really happy with them.

 

My grandparents house in Arizona is great and they have this super old convertable and sometimes we take drives around in it.My grandparents basically live in the middle of nowhere so not many people drive on the road,so we either ride our bikes or play football on it.They have this ice cold pool so when it’s like a bath of ice cubes we get the hot tub really warm and jump in then rapidly get into the hot tub.

 

Now this part of the blog is about how my grandparents have this awesome speedboat and drive us around on this awesome lake in Arizona.First of all the boat is great and sometimes they even let me drive it in open spaces,and i’m sorry i dived straight into the summary but the story has to end at some point.The summary is only four words but also thank you for reading my blog!

 

My grandparents are amazing!

Stargirl

In our class we are reading a magical book called “Stargirl“. This book is very interesting because the only things that represent the title are a drawing of a star and a girl. This book is about a unique elusive girl who went to a school where everyone wanted to fit in.Eventually Stargirl reminds everybody that their so busy trying to fit in that they all forgot who they really are. Stargirl was today she was tomorrow but she was never yesterday. Stargirl’s warmth and kindness shocked many people which is surprising. Everyday few days she sang to a stranger happy birthday but to Stargirl no one ever really was a stranger.

Colonial America – pt2 – Persona

My name is William jr and my brother is William and he is a slave, but I am an indentured servant.I came to the new world for a new life and freedom.Unfortunately I did not have enough money to come to the new world to be a free man, so I decided to go anyways and work off my time. I was eventually bought and soon enough I was working on a plantation in the Southern colony.Usually I work around the house for everyone that includes the man, the woman, and the man and women’s daughter.Everyday I usually look forward to working in the field with my closest friend Jason who is a slave. I am looking forward to starting my own farm once I work off my time and then I will give my crops to families in need who basically spent all their money on the trip but now they have nothing. Also when I work off my time I will help those families build houses for themselves.

Colonial America – pt 1 – Overview

This project is about making and living in a colony in colonial times. We have to choose a job solve problems and learn how to live in a colony. There are three colonies that we split up the class in, Southern Colonies, Middle Colonies and New England Colonies. Were also recording this project with colonial notebooks and a giant living poster, (Living as in changing in the process of our colonies).This project basically relies on our group because our teacher said she’s not going to be helping us she’s going to be throwing problems at us!For example She could say there’s a blizzard or she could just say your being attacked by a Native American!
