My Version Of Hannukah

I celebrate Hanukkah. Can also be spelled Chanukah or Channuka there are 16 possibilities. My family usually lights their own menorah. Except for my dad he’s making sure nobody catches on fire. (which personally I think is a waste of time because I’m VERY mature) For dinner we eat potato pancakes which we call latkes. I like my lakes with apple sauce because it tastes better that way. We don’t eat lakes for ALL eight days. (sadly) And it’s because of those grown ups that are like that’s not healthy and your going to get fat. Blah blah blah. After dinner we play a game called dreidel. Any way I had a great Hanukkah. I hope you did as well!

Arctic Food Web

I have made an ecosystem about the arctic. An ecosystem is when living and nonliving things interact so they can survive. Every food web starts with the sun the ultimate source of energy. Every food web is different because of the climate. Only some animals can live in the arctic. For example a giraffe can not live in the arctic because of the weather.

My food web is the arctic food web in my food web I show producers, consumers and decomposers. The producers are the arctic grass and arctic flowers. They are called producers because they produce their own food. Consumers on the other hand do NOT produce their own food. They have to kill or munch on something to get food. Just like humans! Decomposers on the other hand eat dead things. Gross right? However if we didn’t have lichens the world would be covered in leaves, dead bodies and animals.

The Important Thing about Sylvia Earle

The Important thing about Sylvia Earle

By Lucy Gik

 

Sylvia Earle Ocean Explorer by, Dennis Fertig

The important thing about Sylvia Earle is that she broke records in ocean. She was born in Gibbstown, Greenwich Township,NJ. She did not like it when she moved. It made her sad to think about it., but she eventually got over it and when on to being an oceanographer and an explorer. Sylvia also held the world record for the deepest untethered dive. She made many records in the ocean, For example she  In 1979, she was the first person ever to dive by herself 1,250 feet (381 meters) beneath the surface without being connected to any  support vessel. During that dive, she reached the floor of the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii! Obviously there were many backfires. On her first try she went to the lake and she saw an alligator fish she wasn’t scared though. Her parents taught Sylvia to be very brave and to be “fearless”. Then suddenly she felt very dizzy and found out that she was breathing bad air that almost killed her, she didn’t freak out she continued her dream. She continued to break records in the ocean. In the 1960s, she went all around the world to also study marine plants. She was very brave and she did what she thought had to be right,  but the important thing about Sylvia Earle is that she discovered part of the ocean.

 

“Even if you never have the chance to see or touch the ocean  the ocean touches you with every breath you take, every drop of water you drink, every bite you consume. Everyone, everywhere is inextricably connected to and utterly dependent upon the existence of the sea.”  – Sylvia Earle

Hello World

Hello world! I am Lucy and I’m in fourth grade. I have a twin, Serena, and older sister who is sixteen.

I love sports. In particular I love Ice skating, dance, lacrosse, basketball, and volleyball.  I remember my first time I stepped onto the ice. I made my twin go first.  I held my older sister’s hand and I took a breath and figured out all the possibilities. My first time I  played volleyball i just played around in the sand.  The next time I was ready to play, but I needed to learn a lot and I realized that I needed of work, but at least I had fun. I never became a very good at volleyball.

I LOVE dessert! What’s not to like? I like vanilla when it’s cold and chocolate when it’s hot. I think that dessert is the best thing ever invented, it’s tasty, yummy, delicious and sweet I think dessert stupendous. It’s so tasty and I think that even though it is sometimes it is unhealthy, but it’s delicious so that’s all I care about. I remember one time when I went to a Gardelis chocolate factory and I ate some much chocolate.

I also like to cook. One reason I like to cook is so I can look forward to eat it. At least you get to look forward to a reward. My first time I made mac and cheese I ate half of a stick of cheddar and later when my sister told me to hold the pot when she was stirring the sauce she spilled the mac and cheese sauce on me! I couldn’t believe it my sister burned me!

What is your favorite thing to do?
