Title: Candytopia is a wonderful world full sweet treat

Source: Dogo news

Article Date: September 1, 2018

 

Summary

If you think a regular art museum is boring, then try Candytopia. Candytopia is a place where all the art is made of candy. Jackie Sorkin once said “Candytopia was created for the people’s happiness” and more about the wonderous place. The marshmallow pit is a fluffy pit of delicious marshmallows. It dumps a bucket every few minutes. But don’t eat them they’re fake. Unlike other museums you are free to touch the art it may break but people can come and fix it. Most art took 1,000 hours to create from scratch. Some other exhibits are the clock room where chocolate clocks hang from the wall. Also, the room where the floor is painted like a sky. And a sprinkle spray gun.   

 

Personal Response  

I chose this article because I love candy and it sounded cool.

My Dad Is Like An Older Brother To Me!!

Sometimes people tell me

“My mom is so nice but my dad is kinda mean” Well sure, sometimes dads can be mean but I’m the opposite. I have found that my dad is like a brother to me. He never tells me to go to bed and he plays tricks on me. My dad always helps me with basketball, my dad never yells at me except when I’m annoying, my dad has the best sense of humor and my dad and I like a lot of the same stuff. I like that he acts like that because I’ve always wanted an older brother.                                               

 

One reason he is like an older brother is because, he reads me Harry Potter to me every night and we both love it. Also he never tells me to go to bed because he wants to keep reading Harry Potter. The only time he does tell me to bed is because I’m being annoying. One time we were reading and my mom came in and said

“You are both in trouble” then she left and my dad said

“Go to bed. Why aren’t you asleep” and I laughed. My dad is very funny.

 

Another reason why my dad is like a brother to me is because he likes to pick on me and we like the same stuff. He always makes up funny, “jokes”. We both have the same sense of humor so obviously I have to laugh. It’s also fun to play along with his jokes. One time I was being rude (have i  mentioned i am very rude?)  and so my dad said “this looks like a good place to walk home from”

“Oh yes” I said I can actually go to Peachwave.”  and he said

“You could be out there all night” and the I said

“I’d love to” and then I pretended to get out of the car go to Peachwave  and eat frozen yogurt🍧. We all laughed. Some stuff that we have in common are we both like basketball and we both like a podcast called THE ADVENTURES OF FINN CASPIAN! 🤖I recommended it.

 

The final reason that my dad it’s like an older brother to me is because he helps me practice basketball🏀. He always takes me to the park to a play one-on-one game. He has really helped me be a star.⭐ Were both very competitive so the scor’s always close. Once we were playing and he kept blocking all my shots and kept dunking the ball but I still won.  

 

I know that every dad has some dad, but some dads have brother.

Colonial America!!! (Summary. )

Colonial America had changes  but the colonists and the Native Americans took them differently. maybe because the colonists didn’t know what they were disrupting .

 

Native Americans were in many different tribes all with a different language.

 

The colonists however were in 13 big groups and all spoke English.

 

They traded with each other. Corn+ ferns for iron + colonial cloth. For many years they lived in peace  but as more people came they used important natural resources and claimed their land. This led to times of grief . For example King Philip’s war.

 

The first settlers came to find gold they were greedy and wanted to to get rich. but almost got extinct in the New World. Other colonists came to practice  religious freedom and others joined in.

 

the 13 colonies are Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Delaware, and Maryland

Colonial Americans were people with different,special values and ideas just like us. Different doesn’t mean bad or disgusting it just means different.

Hello!!!!

              

                               

Hi, my name is Rebecca but I like cats so I tell people to call me Cat🐱!!!! I really want a cat but my parents always say NO! It’s soooo annoying. (sometimes I am dramatic. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!) In my blog I will be talking about exiting school project,vacation ,basketball and awesome T.V shows!!!!😹👧😜. I love all animals except not all humans.

                            I live in NY. I have 1 mom, 1 dad, and 1 little sister. I  really do not like unicorns🦄. I love to watch a show called NAILED IT🎂 with Nicole Byer + Jock Toris. (i think those are their names)I love sports. In school we do something called Current Event. In my blog I will also talk about my Current event. I get my event on DogoNews. And I love prodigy.

                 My favorite sport is BASKETBALL🏀!!! It is soooooo amazing. I play rec basketball and i am on Fox Meadow red (there are 2 Fox Meadow 🏀 teams red and white.) I have great teammates. On the 8th of December I played Quaker ridge 1. We won 19-2 but they still had a really good team. I defended a girl named Coco and  Caitlin. They played well. My dad and mom came to see my game. (It was my first of the season.) Afterwards we all went to see the movie The Grinch. It was really good.

                                                                                                       I love to act. I have been in 5 Random Farms production. I have been in; The Frog Prince jr, Guys & Dolls jr, The Little Mermaid jr, Seussical jr and High School Musical jr. High School Musical was my favorite one to do. I played Zeke and i got to smash a pie🍮 (shaving cream in a pie tin.) into the girl who played Sharpe. The person who played Sharpe was named Leora. She was really nice and funny. My favorite part in it was stick to the status quo.

Follow me on my blog,

There was a book about him called “The Travels of Marco Polo.”

But the important thing about Marco Polo is that he was an explorer.

Maglev

                                  ALL ABOUT A MAGLEV TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

BY REBECCA BASS!

 

                      A maglev train is a train that goes faster than all trains and can levitate off the track.    The magnets on the track repel from one another and the train floats.     My groups design for the train was  a piece of foam and two strip magnets and a ring magnet in the middle. The design for the track  was two strip magnets and three ring magnets in the middle and a strip magnet on top.

 

       The materials for the maglev train that my group used are strip magnets and ring magnets we also  used tape  a piece of foam and disc magnets.we also followed   the edp plan.(engineering design process.) The design process is where you go through a series of steps that help you create and design something you imagine.

We began by designing the train and then the track. We had some tough times but we did it and my group was happy and I think our group worked really well together.
