The American Revolution ended in a success and the Americans lived happily ever after.
I learned that not all revolutions end well, as you can see the Russians did not succeed but the Americans succeeded, so the big idea is that revolutions take lots of money lots of effort, and lots of lives.

My theme is long term benefits are more important than short term benefits. One piece of evidence is that the author talked about all the additives and unhealthy things factories put in fast food, and another piece of evidence is that the author said that people become extremely fat or obese after eating too much fast food.
One reason to read this book is that it will increase your knowledge of food, another reason to read this book is that you can improve your diet after reading this. The most important thing I learned in this unit is how important health and food are, and how much their related.
Between internal and external conflict I chose to discuss the external conflict. The main external conflict in Fish cheeks is that Amy likes Robert but is embarrassed by her Chinese culture. Amy describes her culture as shabby and she says that her relatives lacked proper American manners. She also states that she feels despair and that she was stunned for the rest of the night. After dinner Amy’s mother then tells her that her only shame is to have shame. This shows that the main external conflict is that Amy is embarrassed by her Chinese culture. For my drawing, I chose the colors red and blue to symbolize the Chinese and American flag and I drew a fish and hearts to represent love and the food.
I think the theme of monkey’s paw is fate. In the story of monkey’s paw the characters in the story had three wishes, in line 56 it says “An old fakir put a spell on it, he wanted to show that fate ruled people’s lives, and that to interfere with fate only caused deep sadness.” This shows that the old man wants fate to rule people and he did not want people to fight fate. Later in the story, Mr. White tried to wish for two hundred pounds, days after a man came to their house and told Mrs. White and Mr. White that their son has died. Then he said that he needed to pay them two hundred pounds. Mrs. White and Mr. White were extremely sad from that day on, so they took the monkeys paw and wished for their son again. Later, in line 318, Mrs. White says” the bolt at the top I can’t reach it.” This proves that fate is trying not to let her open the door for her son to come back, and at the last second Mr. White used the paw to make their son disappear again. From wishing for two hundred pounds and their son dying to reviving their son and still failing all leads me to believe that the theme of monkey’s paw is fate.
On May 22-24 6-3, 6-4, 6-1, and 6-2 went on a trip to 石门山. A new skill that I learnt is using a flint&steel, a knife, and the best of all ROASTING MARSHMALLOWS OF COURSE! The most challenging part of the trip was take care of the key. The part I enjoyed most was eating roasted sausages, marshmallows, and s’mores (the s’mores were a bit too messy). I would tell the next group to have fun!
This is a project where we picked a civilisation and mine was Egypt. During this project we chose an innovation and we chose the door lock. We did lots of research on it and at last we used pixton to make a video of it. Enjoy!!!
During this activity our class got split into groups to build a civilisation. During this activity we traded, made laws, designed a temple, made a language, and at last we opened the top secret envelope and we made the top secret item to win the simulation(even though we didn’t win I still had fun).
During the activity I designed a temple with Akina. We drew a layout of the floor of the temple.
As a group we divided the work load by Grace doing the laws with Jiwon, Lia doing the written language, and me and Akina doing the architecture. Later after the laws and language were approved by Ms.Shannon we could trade. Jiwon did the trading process. We chose what each other did by doing what we like. Our biggest accomplishment was that we actually got to the part where we could open the envelope and we were all having fun.
Our weakness is that we could not stick tape onto things and we got kind of lost while making our catapult. This happened because we should have found out how it works before we built anything.
If I could do this activity again I would cooperate more as a team and make sure the tape sticks onto the craft stick. This would be better because we could have prevented lots of mistakes.
This is my thinglink that I did in humanities. I was in the community group so I had to find out about the communities of modern humans and modern humans.
