Independent Project Reflection

My Independent project was about the praying mantis. I know lame but not so. Did you know the praying mantis has three eyes and it's "ear" on it's butt. I know right amazing. These insects are very important without them their may be enough insects to destroy entire homes. So I feel as if this may have been one of the best things I could have picked as my topic. Also I used google slides for this project; I did not embed because it is something to be presented not read. What do all of you guys think about this? Leave a comment if you have a question and I'll try to answer it soon.

ISU Reflection

Our goal class went on a trip recently to Iowa State University for a discovery day. On this day we were given two classes to do in the morning an all you can eat buffet and a tour of the campus!
My first class was about engineering. The task we were given was to construct a container that would protect a pringle from a series of tests. A few pieces of paper a strip of tape and a pringle were the supplies for this activity. The first test was a book being dropped on the container. our second test was for the capsule  to be shaken around a box full of legos. We learned about the areas of engineering and what it takes to be an engineer.
My second class was about how cheese is made. In this class we learned that different kinds of milk and additive effected the kind of cheese that was made. The milk is heated first then  we added vinegar to make cheese curds. The cheese cloth got filled with curds stopping the remaining milk from draining through.
The most educational part of the day was the tour we were taken on. the best part of the tour was the library. This was a five story building with a book from 1462.
I learned that the campus has a  clock tower that rings every hour and every fifteen minutes.
If I could give any feedback to make it better for others would be to include a small session in where you can ask students who go their about the school.
The main reason we was went was as a trial to see if it was good experience and worth the expenses for the school. The biggest thing I got out of this was the library and getting to see a local peregine falcon.

DWA writing

DWA 10/19/17

 "He who is powerful is not the strongest, he who is willing to stand up towers above all others"
 - Adrian Scotton 
What I mean by this is that you can be in control of everything but are they truly in control? All it takes is a single person to rise up and bring others to a point where the controller controls no longer as it was with the empire. 

 DWA 9/28/17

As I sit at home reading a book/ a crack of thunder splits the night. After the BOOM! an item fell off the shelf. At first I think nothing of it. But as the book is closing the piano starts to play. The music is sweet and melodus, and at the same time haunting and eerie. Rain begins to fall heavily and the music stops. the wind sounds as if a madman was cackling. The lights start to flicker on and off as a cold terror fills the room. I run. Lights go out for good, but a glow is in the hallway.
Suddenly it's gone as everyone comes home. After this night whenever it storms I can hear a faint music coming from everywhere as I lie awake.

Back To School

We have dived in to the 2017-18 just a day ago this year so much has changed at our school lunch made a huge skyrocket in orders this year. The fifth grade has switched areas and I dropped my paper route I had for 2 years! Now instead of almost no vacations I have a new after school activity called cross country and had our first meet yesterday. The space I placed was not bad really even though it's not usually that good. just some random guys not me.

Nauvoo GOAL trip

Nauvoo GOAL trip


I  would say my favorite part of the trip was when we were in the family living center learning about how they had lived in that time.
       Something I learned on our trip was that oxen stocks were used to shoe a oxen for the trip to the rocky mountains.
      One of the main reasons the mormons left was due to the surrounding towns were very angry that the mormons had a certain belief and a way of life that was frowned upon by the towns in the neighboring counties.
      The main thing I want to more about is the blacksmith's job and how they did their job.
Thank you for reading about my Goal trip.

Literature Circles

Literature Circles 2016-2017


We just finished our lit circles unit and I will speak to you about it.
First off I would like to tell you what moral dilemmas are. A moral dilemma is the problem in the story for example Jack lost his kite. That is an example of what moral dilemmas are. 
        Our group just read to books and their dilemmas were a boy tries to find out if his teacher doesn't like him. Secondly was a boy that caused a bad crash and how he handles it. The first dilemma belongs to a book called Nothing But The Truth, and the second dilemma goes to a book called Nobody Else Has To Know. The main character for Nothing But but the Truth was Phillep Malloy and the other characters were Miss.Narwin,Mr and Mrs.Malloy, Allison and finally the assistant Principal. The Main character for Nobody Else Has To Know was Webber Freegy along with Maxie, Grandpa, Taffy Putnam,Dylis,Mrs.Freegy and Beefy. Our authors were Ingrid Tomey for Nobody Else Has To Know and no one (since it's a documentary) for Nothing But The Truth.
       Nothing But The Truth wasn't exactly solved so Nobody Else Has To Know was solved through a confession to the police. In Nothing But The Truth I would have just went along with what happened and not cause a ruches. In Nobody Else Has To Know I would have went right ahead and confessed to what happened.
         That is it for this post so goodbye. ( P.S. hope you enjoyed it)
