Field Trip Reflection

    My favorite part of the trip to Nauvoo was the living history center. It was my favorite because We got to make rope and see how they made bread in the 1840's. It was also cool to taste the bread too and I liked it.  What I learned about how they lived in the 1840's is how they made their bricks for houses and other things. It turns out they would take the clay, sand, and water and mix it. Then they would shape them into bricks, dry them by turning them over, then put them into a giant oven like thing where they would get all the water out of them and also cook. I thought that was interesting. What I learned about the Mormon's moving west is that they were badly persecuted and treat badly. Sometimes even killed. I didn't know much about that before the trip. If I had to choose one thing to research about it would be what the temple is like. I thought the temple had looked interesting but I wonder what they do their and how and I just overall thought it was cool that they even had temples.

Lit. Circle Moral Dilemma's

    A moral dilemma is a situation where your morals are conflicting and you don't know what you should do. I think there were multiple moral dilemma's in my book. Some of them are whether Connor should kill the orphans who are not chosen. (WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD) Another is whether Prince Jaron should tell that he is the real prince early or wait until he goes to the court to prove it. The characters involved were Connor and Jaron. The Connor dilemma was solved by when Jaron said that he wanted them to come with him to the castle. The Jaron dilemma was solved when he decided to wait until the court to show he was Jaron. If I was Jaron I would have probable done the same thing so that Connor wouldn't figure out that I was the real prince and put me in the dungeon or something like that.

Invent Iowa

     My invention is called the Air-to-Go, it is a giant air filter that will be put in places such as Beijing and other places with high risks of disease because of CO2, and other air pollutants.
     The problem I was trying to solve was air pollution. It solves the problem by removing them from the air and disposing them.
      I am most proud of the idea itself. I think my idea was really good I just didn't display it the way I wanted to on the board. I will hope to improve next time.
      Some problems were that the poster didn't look very nice, the glue bled through, and the picture went missing. I just had to deal with what happened as I didn't have time to fix them. It was also my first time using a presentation board ever so I didn't know how I should do it.
      Next time I would try and paint it better or use colored paper for the backing, not put as much glue on, and make sure I have all of my stuff and have it look nicer.

Independent Project

I did my project on Robot-Assisted surgery. Robot Assisted surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery. I liked that I could learn so much about something a lot of people don't really know. I think the hardest part of my project was making it presentable. I improved as a student because we had to listen to other peoples projects. If I could do it all over again, I would use the library resources before googling it. I think we could make this project better by giving more instructions.

2016-2017 1st Blog Post

 I want all of my subjects to be at 13 in the Iowa Assessments by the end of the year to prove to my mother i'm not becoming dumb because of my technology. I also would not like to be at the "bad kid table" at lunch at all because of behavioral issues. I also want to improve my math grades for the year.

 These are all important because without good grades you might not go to a good college and get a good job. If you didn't improve then you would never get anywhere in life.

Poetry Activity

      1. My opinion of poetry changed because I thought poetry was boring and that its all a bunch of shakespeare and stuff like that. I didn't know it could actually be funny and have random things and words with it.

      2. I enjoyed cross-fire poetry the most because you took a lot of random words and put them in to something that sounded good. If you read it poetically.

      3. I shared Gardener with the class because I thought it was hilarious. It was by Shel Silverstein. It was funny because it was how a little boy peed to water the plants.
