Nauvoo field trip reflection

Going to the visitors center and watching the movie, I feel really good every time I watch it. I learned how they made barrels and the tools they used to make to them. They were persecuted for what they believe. Blacksmithing because it is a really cool topic that I'm interested in.

Moral Dilemma Lit Circle

  Warning, this contains spoilers. I think a moral dilemma is the choice between right and wrong for the right or wrong reason. The main moral dilemma in our book was that a guy named Bevin Connor trying to the fool the country by making a kid from an orphanage king. Well the thing is, the kid Sage, is already the prince from 4 years ago. So they have to figure out how to get ''Sage" King. They didn't really solve it though. But Connor going to jail definitely helped matters. I would have at least tried to have been happy with the current king. I think running would have been the best option if I were Sage.

Invent Iowa

     Our (me and Tate's) Invention was called The Copper Stabilizer. It was basically improving Copper fit. It basically is a nylon knee-strap laced with copper. then copper wires run down the backsides of the legs which connects to a detachable heel plate (similar to a shoe horn).
     We were trying to solve the problem of leg pain. Some examples are: Arthritis, cramps, and Diabetic Nerve Pain just to name a few.
     It uses the copper to straighten your legs, and conduct heat and electricity. It also reduces odor. 
     I am really proud of our poster. It looks pretty good and it is labeled.
     I really struggled filling out my Inventors Journal. I made all of them up later on though. 
     Make our poster look better probably.

ESP Project

I did my project on ESP.  I did a slideshow.  I did not really like my project. I think the hardest part was getting facts. I learned a lot from my project mostly to get it done early.  I would have had more facts. I don't really have any advice.

2016-2017 1st Blog Post

I want to set a goal for getting at least 5 A's on my report card, also I want to try to not judge anyone this year. Finally I want to be better at focusing in class. I wouldn't say I am the smartest out there so I really need to work on my schooling. I am not the best with judging people out there. Its important to be kind physically and mentally. I have a really short attention span. Probably the reason I don't do well is because I cannot focus.

Poetry Reflection

hgjfhgfMy point of view of poetry really changed during this class. Originally I thought poetry was just a boring,fancy, petite thing. I was wrong. Poetry is fun and creative. You get to express yourself a lot more in poetry than in regular writing. I enjoyed poetry poker the most. It was just really fun to mix random stuff to make something funny and creative. I shared the poem ''Sick'' By Shel Silverstein. I originally was not going to pick this poem, but of course, TATE took the one I wanted. I think ''Sick" kinda relates to me, because I woud have done the same thing as ''Little Peggy Ann McKay.hfmM

Sports and Games around the World reflection

My project was on Pato, a game from Argentina thats played on horseback with a 6-handled ball. You throw it into a vertical hoop with your right hand, but in early days (1600's) they played with a real live duck! It has been the national sport of Argentina as of 1953. The most interesting thing I learned was that they played with a live duck. I would improve it by maybe getting a bit more info.
