Nauvoo Field Trip

 


      On Wednesday April 26 we took a field trip to the town of Nauvoo Illinois. A long time ago it was home to the Mormons. It was an amazement for all of us to see.
      My favorite part of the trip is the game area, Pioneer Pastime. They had lots of games the Pioneers would play, tug of war, hand games, they even had stilts!
      Something new I learned about was how a hard working Pioneer could make a good 200 candles. It is also amazing on how they made bricks!
      However, around 1840 they were forced out of their homes because of their religion. They killed their leader and then they had to leave then.
      If I had to research and learn about a topic it would definitely be smithing or brick masonry. I like the presentation. It was so good it convinced me that I want to learn more.  Image result for nauvoo illinois

Literature Discussions

           Moral Dilemma is when there is a very difficult choice between at least two things. You can find examples of Dilemma in the books we were reading.  
          
          For my class we were doing literature circles. A book we read in our little groups was a book called That Was Then, This Is Now by S.E. Hinton. It takes place in the 1960s. It is about two best friends. One best friend soon figured out that the other friend was dealing drugs to kids. The friend has to make the choice of his life. The choice was unfortunate but right. He called the police and they arrested the friend. I would do the same if I was in the character's shoes. It would be hard for me however.
        
         The next book we read was the prequel of the book. It is called Outsiders also by S.E. Hinton. It is about a group of gangsters (the greasers) that are "at war" with another group of gangsters (the Socs). However we did not finish the book. You can always read it for yourself however. I would find somewhere safe if I was a greaser!

Invent Iowa



          Since January my friend Jacob and I have been working on a project in class for a something known as Invent Iowa. What that is for the people who don't know what is, It's creating an invention to make the world better. Now me as a kid today I or my fellow classmates would never be able to make a real invention! 
         
           So what we did was our class created an invention to make the world better. However, I say that Jacob and I didn't make a project to make the world better. You will just have to find out.
          
          Our invention was the Installment Sneaker Speaker X2 aka ISSX2 aka Sneaker Speaker. It is a speaker, in a sneaker! It is supposed to entertain the youth. With the help of your smartphone, the sneaker speaker will play the song you select. The problem we are trying to solve is the fact that people are using headphones and how it's disrespectful and dangerous in many ways. Our invention solves that people won't use headphones anymore, they will use Sneaker Speaker! We are proud of this project because even though we didn't win, we still succeeded with our project. Thats the thing people don't do that much of anymore. Ask yourself, am I proud of how I did?

         A challenge we faced during this project is that there is an original Sneaker Speaker. However, this SS was a strap you hook up to your foot. Our Sneaker Speaker was a built in speaker. To make this project better, I would have a better everything because imagination is our limit!

My 6th grade Independent project reflection

Yes people the time has come I reflect on my Independent project. This year I studied three basketball players; Allen Iverson, Jerry West, and Yao Ming. I created a slideshow or slide on google. It was a great choice for me since I like basketball so much. My favorite part of this project was looking at the funny pictures and putting them on my slideshow. The hardest part about my project was looking for facts. I think finding facts more helped me improve as a learner. What I mean by that is I found 51 facts. If I had to start over, I would have bullet points instead of paragraphs. If I had any advice for future independent projectors; do not waste time, EVERY SECOND COUNTS!

2016-2017 1st. blog post

     So I've Set a few goals for myself today. They are academic, behavior, and an improvement goal. 
1. Be the best I can to achieve greatness in school. For example getting an "A" in school. 
   2. I need to make sure I have common sense in and out of school. My dad says it is important to know what's going on around you. 
   3. I must become better at shooting 3 pointers. I am good at basketball but if I am going to be even better, I must practice my 3s. 
If I don't do any of these goals I will never be a good and successful person like my family.

Sports and games around the world project reflection

                     My sports and games project was Table Tennis (ping pong). What I did for a project was a google slide. The slide was about the VOCAB and how to play it. The point of the game is to use a paddle to hit the a tiny ball onto the opponents side without them hitting it back. what I mean by side is that there's a square table that is sometimes made of wood or plastic or who knows! You need to get to 11 points.
                    The most interesting thing I learned was how there's 3 or more tennis pros named Li! Li Ping, Li Quan, and Li Nan are the ones I know that are named Li.
  I could improve by having a video for my slide. If I add a slide I think people would understand my presentation a lot better.

My Passion Project

My passion project are wormholes. My partner is Andrew Titze. Our plan is to make a website about wormholes. Our focus question is what do wormholes do? I have about 6 notes that will help us a lot. What I've learned was in the throat of a worm hole are negative energy. That means a space ship would lose connection. I hope that wormholes could change the world.
