We did this project because there are a some kids that use drugs in high school and in the junior high. Some things that I liked about this project is that I got to make a poster to tell people what Drugs can do to you. This project was fun because we got to research to see on how you can know if someone is influenced by Alcohol.

5/6/14 Oriental Institute Field Trip
Today we visited the University of Chicago to see the Oriental Institute. In the museum we saw artifacts from Ancient Mesopotamia and artifacts from ancient Egypt. In the Mesopotamian section I saw a Lamassu that had the head of a man the wings of a bird and the legs of a cow. In the ancient Egyptian section I saw King Tut's statue and a sarcophagus of an Egyptian person . Something that I liked about this field trip was that most of the things that we saw were real. Something that I disliked was the fake hamurabi's code.
3/20/14 Storm Chaser Visit
We had a storm chaser visit named Mr. Jesse Walters and we asked him questions he showed us his vehicle, his equipment and he showed a presentation. Something I liked about Mr. Walters coming was that I was able to see some of the things he uses to chase storms. Something I disliked was that my question was asked and answered before I got to question him. I learned that the only reason a supercell storm looks like an anvil is that the clouds reach there limit and they can't go any higher. I'm still curious of why people would want to go storm chasing if they can die. Mr. Walters website is jwsevereweather.com.
2/25/14 Field Trip to Lizzardo Lapidary Art Museum
At the museum we looked at different types of rocks and minerals and we also looked at different things that people carved using them. I learned that some of the things that they carved were made a long time ago like in the 1700. Something I liked about this field trip was that I got to see a lot of diamonds and different types of fossils. Something I disliked was that we didn't have a much time to see everything that was there. This connects to our science unit right now because we are learning about the different types of rocks and minerals.
2/4/14 Board Game
This is my science board game about tornadoes. Something that I like about this project is that I was able to make my own board game. My favorite part was doing the research and putting it together.
1/17/14 Invention Convention Commercial
This is my Invention Convention Commercial. Some advice that I have for myself is that I really need to work harder when I get a really important project like this one.
11/12/13 Cause and Effect of Invasive Species Prezi
When I made this prezi I learned that animals that are not native and come to america can do bad changes or do good changes to the land around it. Click here to see my presentation.
