In this post, you will be able to read what happened in our first meeting in detail. So we kicked off our Rube Goldberg project by thinking of what to do. We thought of basic Rube Goldberg materials such as marbles and dominoes. We didn’t have a ramp so we hot glued three wooden rectangular prisms and made those a ramp. The dominoes were the most annoying part because we would always knock them over midway. the dominoes would then hit a toy car which would hit a Jenga tower. The catapult was Alex’s sisters so we hid it from her view. We felt that our first day was a success and we felt proud.
We were working in school on a rocketry unit in science. There was four groups of four and one group of five, I was in a group of four. We built paper rockets and launched them using a pressurized air launcher, we did this three times. When we were not launching rockets we were working on a slideshow, we were the last to present to the parents. I was really nervous because what if I messed up, what if I fell over or forgot my lines? But once I started I couldn’t stop! I didn’t even make one mistake! I was really proud of myself and my teammates. For there side of the story got to.
This is my favorite YouTube video. Hope you enjoy!
My teacher had to leave school early because she is having surgery. She taught me about colonial america, math, sience, social studies and ELA. I learned about why the 13 colonies declared independence from England. I did an assignment on a person which was like a biography. I learned about land and water and how that could effect the land by eroding it.
This song is called Despacito. A lot of people in my school like this song. I think it has a good rhythm.

Soon I’m going on spring break. When I’m going on spring Break I will be going on a Disney Cruise deporting from Florida. I have been on a Disney Cruise two times. Both of the times I have been on the Cruise it was very fun. I got to go on water slides and see plays movies and play video games in the kids section. I would recommend going on a Disney Cruise.
The Disney Cruise I am going on is called the Disney Dream. That is one of the four types of Disney Cruises. Here are all the names of the Cruises the Disney Magic, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and the Disney Wonder. I have already been on the Wonder and Fantasy. The Dream and Fantasy. I know that there is a huge water slide on the ship and it goes the hole way around. That will be my spring break.
I loved working on my Colonial America Informational book. At first I had to do a lot of research with books and websites. I thought that this would be a lot of fun and I was right. I got to add links, transitions and pictures. And people in my class would look and see if I needed to edit and revise. I didn’t take it as an insult because of course I wanted my book to be the best. It was super cool for me and my class to make this Colonial America Informational book.
There was also some problems with my book that I fixed. One problem was that the glossary words were not linked. That was a problem for me because the reader of my book might not know the meaning of a word and they would need to know the meaning of the word fast so I linked the words. When I did my chapters I realized that I did not have enough information and then my books would be bad. So I looked in some more books and got some better facts. This is the end of my Colonial America Information Book Reflection.
