Cristopher columbus

Christopher Columbus was the oldest of five children. His siblings names were (brother) Bartholomew Columbus,  (sister)Bianchinetta Columbus (brother) Giovanni Pellegrino Columbus (brother) Giacomo Columbus.

Christopher Columbus was born in 1451, his first voyage wis in 1492. His dad was a merchant in Genoa, and sold very valuable things.

Christopher Columbus’s mom died in 1484. Christopher Columbus and his dad were devastated when

Christopher Columbus’s mom died.

You might think Christopher Columbus was a good person, and found America, but really, he did not. He conquered, killed, and enslaved the natives that were there first.

He settled down in America, and lived there for a few years.

Queen Isabella died a few weeks after Christopher Columbus came back to Spain.

He helped make the Portuguese more rich.

Christopher Columbus was already rich, but he was greedy, and wanted more. People think that Christopher Columbus was a good man, but really, people don’t know his background story. Christopher Columbus remarried in 1479. The important thing about Christopher Columbus is that he was an explorer. He discovered, and made paths for the other explorers. He helped make the Portuguese more wealthy, and discovered way more things than America, but the important thing about Christopher Columbus is that he was an explorer. On August 3, 1492, Christopher Columbus and his 120 men set sail on their first voyage in 1492. Christopher Columbus died on May 20, 1506. People remember him as a great explorer, and the person who found America. That’s why we celebrate Christopher Columbus day.

I’m Back

Hi my name is Nikolaus I’m nine years old.

I go to Fox Meadow Elementary School.

I have one brother and 3 sisters and a mom and dad.

I love playing video games😍, for example I like the google doodle halloween 2018 game.

One reason I like video games is that you get to be another person and play in a different world.

Also I like them because you can do stuff  that you can’t do right now.

 

One of my favorite things to eat is candy.

The best candy store is Imagine Candy, but sadly they closed and now I can’t go there anymore😭.

I like candy because it’s sweet sometimes chewy, but I hate chocolate 😥 (except for ones with a flavor).

 

I know that candy isn’t healthy for you but I can’t help it😬!

Some days I feel really bad and I just need candy😩.

 

I also really like drawing.

It’s one of my favorite thing to do.

I really like drawing because it calms me down.

And it also just lets me show my feelings like when I’m mad😠 a draw a mad face and so on.

 

I also love dog’s 🐕!!!!

Especially the puppies there cute and fluffy, and I really want one really badly😢.

But my parents wont let me get one😒.

I also really want one🙏.

  because we don’t have a pet!, not even a fish💔.

 

I also love the ocean because it’s cold and you can go fishing and when I get to go there usually first thing a do is go in the sand and make a tunnel to get to water.

 

I hope you liked this bye😁 Leave a comment and if you like these things follow me😜.

maglev trains

Maglev trains

A maglev train is a train that is a train that levitates above the train tracks, scientific word for levitate is levitation. The train actually literally is in mid air. It does this by having magnets they can float, magnets have two forces these are repelling and attracting. That’s what a maglev train is. My groups idea was to two long strip magnets on a box on each side, and than put a disc magnet in the middle. And then we taped them to the boxes floor, that they’ll stick and not move. They were all on the north side. Now i’ll tell you how my group designed the bottom of the train that we made, so first we put one strip magnet on each side and put it on the south side because south and north repel. Then we put a disc magnet in the middle, and that’s our design. Oh no what did we do wrong?  Here’s what we did wrong we put to much tape, ok now remember don’t put to much tape then your train won’t work. Building a maglev train is a good learning process, here’s something i’ve learned how to make things float better said levitate. I also learned a lot about what a magnet can do.
