The French Revolution Journal

It’s a historical-fiction journal about the French Revolution I made. The thing that the reader should get from this e-book is that blind, cruel, and selfish emperor would overthrown by his people!

The French Revolution in Plain English

This video is made by me(Andy), Scarlett, and Kate, it’s about French Revolution. We are narrating the history by telling the key points which picked from the timeline. All the photo in this video is made by us (we drew them). It’s assessed for speaking. And we are talking in plain English so that everyone could understand!

Revolution

Revolution

The causes of revolution usually are because of the vicious governing of the governments, and the shabby situation people in that country had, such as poverty and starvation. There’s a very appropriate example—–The Russian Revolution. The outbreak of the Russian Revolution was that the emperor (The Tsar) made a zillion of faulty constitutions.

The things that usually occur in the revolution are the government was getting weaker and weaker, and the revolutionaries were being mightier until they were competent to beat the wicked, moldy ruler. They(revolutionaries) would sponsor a final revolution (which is the determination of which side is the winner). In the Russian Revolution, Lenin and his regiments were playing the role of revolutionaries, they obtained a mass of soldiers. And when they realised that they were formidable enough to defeat the government, they made a revolution with no hesitation, and they overwhelmed the Tsar.

There’re also some different results. Such as a partial of the Russia revolution, after the autocratic emperor “Tsar” abdicated, there’s another undemocratic emperor just came out after several years, and the circumstances were getting worse and worse. And as expected, that evil emperor had also been overridden at last.

Revolution is the overhaul of a country, the purification and refresh of people’s ideology, the termination of the incomplete constitution, and the threshold of a new dynasty. Basically, there’s no any country could be alive without the revolutions from people, and the alteration of the emperor.

Written Task: The Lacemaker And The Princess

The name of the book I read is called “The Lacemaker And The Princess”, the author is Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. The book is using some nonexistent character to tell the terrible and horrible situation in French at that time. The main character is called Isabelle, who’s a poor lacemaker. She made the best friend with the princess of France. The situation for normal people at that time was pretty bad, but the life for the princess was very luxurious. Isabelle’s brother told her that people in France were planning to sponsor a revolution because the blind of the emperor. Isabelle was entangle with that thing. One day she worked as hard as she could, and was late for playing with the princess, the princess was sad about it, but Isabelle was mad, she cried and told the shabby situation for people in France to the princess. Several months later, people forced the King and his family to move to another city in France. And 2 years later, the king had been overthrown.

The theme I got is that: The emperor is foolish if he cannot see what has happened to his people, and his people in France will overthrow him. This book could clearly prove the theme I got, the king in France at that time was very “blind”, he didn’t know the bad circumstance his country was having. When the people in his country was starving, he didn’t notice that, and he overthrown by his people at last.

The planet which NASA should focus on

Claim: NASA should focus on the cold moon of Saturn (Titan) because it has the condition for lives, and we have already made a plan for it.

Evidence:

“The first proposal, called Dragonfly, would be unlike any project before: it would send a flying robot to an alien moon. The spacecraft would have a quadcopter – that is, four spinning helicopters – to help it move and fly around.

The robot would be equipped with instruments that could help it identify certain chemicals. These could give us clues to any living things on Titan.

In addition, the robot will be able to fly hundreds of miles to study the environment on Titan. This large, cold moon of Saturn has thick air. It also has lakes and rivers of a chemical called liquid methane. Scientists believe that a watery ocean may sit beneath the frozen outer layer of Titan.

It’s ‘an environment that we know has the ingredients for life,’ said Elizabeth Turtle. She’s a researcher at Johns Hopkins University. With Dragonfly, scientists can learn much about how chemistry has changed before life emerged, Turtle said.”

Reasoning:

According to the evidence, there’s a plan for this project, so far, all the problems have been solved by the project designer. Elizabeth Turtle said the environment on Titan has the ingredients for life, that means maybe there are some alien creatures on that planet, so it’s very important for us to discover that planets. The next step we should do is to make the quadcopter which is available to do that mission. Then we should do some experiments. And after that, I think we can send the quadcopter to Titan.

One Day Reflection

Today we made many chuars (chicken wings and lamp), it taste very good.

The things that I did well was cooking, I have learned a lot, including learned how to distribute the work properly to all the team members and how to make the taste of the chuar better. The obstacle for us was that we lost the grills, but later the teacher lend his grill to us. One Day is so important because it could let us learn more things which we can never learn them from the class! It’s a memorable day!

Chuar

I think we are making traditional Chuars. We will design our own Chuar and make the recipe. Later we will cook it. by ourselves.

Problems:

  • The recipe of the Chuars
  • How to make chuars
  • Where are we going to make a chuar
  • How much money do we have

Plan:

  1. Research about Chuars
  2. Make a unique recipe
  3. Buy ingredients
  4. Find a place which has a good cooking condition
  5. Make it!

The Mars Helicopter

Recently, An USA space group “NASA” announced that they will send a Mars helicopter. It scheduled to launch in 2020, and touch down on Mars in 2021. The helicopter will do some test on Mars to make sure whether humans could survive on it or not. “The Mars helicopter’s body is small and light, but it’s blades are mighty. The atmosphere on Mars is very thin, only 1% as dense as Earth’s, Mars helicopter needs strong blades to push enough air so that it could fly. The Mars helicopter has already done the ground breaking tests.” (NASA.gov).

I think it is a hopeful project, Because if it success it would help us a lot on discovery and finding new accommodation. And if this project meet the failure, this event would pave the way for future missions!

The Boxer Rebellion

I think the boxers were protecting their country, so they wouldn’t deserve a bad rap.

Independent Reading Book Advertisement

 

I put some word around the picture because they have an attraction which could make people to read that book.

And the words on the bottom of the page is the theme of this book.

I put “Nothing could stop your pace” on the right of side of the picture, and that’s also a theme in this book.

I made some main characters’ pictures and some arrows to reveal their complicated relationship and that could absorb people to read this book as well.

There’s a brief definition to show what this book is talking about and what is the conflict.

On the bottom of this page is the resolution.
