DWA Publishing 1st Quarter

I agree with the quote "Imagination is more important than knowledge.Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." -Albert Einstein. I agree because people can learn a lot, but imagination never stops. DWA 9-6

If I had 50 dollars to donate to charity, I would donate to ASPCA because it's really sad when animals are abused from previous owners and then they never get adopted because of their pasts. DWA 9-14

Words of Wisdom Reflection

From the Words of Wisdom project, I have learned that many people have a good outlook in life and that they care about what happens to people close to them.

Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection

My favorite part of the field trip was the Pioneer Pastimes because there were lots of really cool games their like the stilts that you would try to walk on and I also really like the game where you raced your wooden bear up the rope.
And something new that I learned about people at that time was how they got along with each other very well and they never really fought with anyone else.
A reason the mormons moved was because a lot of violence was starting to spread so they had to leave and they decided to go to the rocky mountains.
I would research more about their food and bakeries because I like food and because it would be cool to compare the food they had then and the food we have now.

Moral Dilemma Literature Circles

A moral dilemma is a conflict that has to or more actions with reasonings to chose an action. The moral dilemma in my book (Nobody Else Has to Know by Ingrid Tomey) Is if Webb and Grandpa should tell the truth about the accident or not. And in Nothing But The Truth by Avi is if Philip Malloy did the right thing by humming the National Anthem. In Nobody Has To Know the moral dilemma was solved by Webb telling the truth to the cops. In Nothing But The Truth the moral dilemma was solved by moving to a new school. For Nobody Else Has To Know I wouldn't do anything differently because Webb did the right thing telling the truth. Nothing But the Truth I would do different because it seems silly to move to a new school.

Invent Iowa

         Giteeka and I's invention was Gelle` and it kept stains from getting on your clothes. It isn't a stain remover exactly, because it would be put on before you get a stain. It starts as a liquid, then after five minutes of drying it is two layers of thin plastic. Then when you get a stain, just peel a layer of and you have one more sheet left for later on.
         We were trying to solve the problem of stains on your clothes. It is really hard to remove a stain that got on your clothes. Well, it depends on the stain.
         Our invention solves this problem because of the thin plastic sheets that are durable enough to keep stains away from your clothes.
         I am most proud of how the product turned out and how the poster turned out. The product not only worked good (that is if it wasn't a model) it looked good too. It looked like a fresh product that actually works. The poster worked out good too even though we used paper instead of spray paint. The duct tape added a nice pop to the poster and it was all displayed neatly.
        The challenges were putting on the paper. Putting on the background paper was really hard, but we did it.
        We forgot to add the sources and when we had realized that we needed to put that on, we didn't pick up the paper in the library so we didn't have that to put on.

Independent Project Reflection

My project was about diamonds and I presented it as a slideshow.  My favorite part of my project was the famous diamonds slide because the crown jewels are really pretty.  The hardest part of the project was taking notes because it takes forever. I could improve on notes because I would rather have 50 instead of 20. If I had to restart, I would do a glogster instead of slides. I have no questions.
