This weekend i played computer games and went over to my friends house. I played on my IPad so much that it died 2 times. I didn't do much this weekend just like my last weekend. Bye
In the last 3 days i have done a project with Mya and Mckayla and me of course. It is about Jellyfish and different kinds of them. I don't have much to say but the video is down. JUST LOOK. well see ya in the next blog post.
This weekend i did not do much. I went to adventure land and i went outside. I came to the school and we had a chalk event for the teachers. Well that is basically what i did. BYE!
Today Mac Barnett came to our school. He is a author who has wrote many books. He is a author who is funny in has books some of the time. I like most of his books. They are all great books though. He told us how a book is made. Some of it was made up, but some was how it really was. First you send it to an editor. They tell you what they think you should change. Then you send it back. Tell you more changes and send it back but then you think it is good so you send it back but they tell you that you didn't changes these things so they send it back to you but you still think it is great and send it back, then they send it back then you send it back and then they send it back until its over. Then you find someone to illustrate it if needed to. In this case i will say it needs to be illustrated. Then they say they will (if they want to.) But they say they have to finish the book they are on if that is the case. Then you have to print it. Then you can sell it. He told us how much money he makes per book. The Skunk By: Mac Barnett i will use as an example. It cost 18$ (17.99 to be exact.) He gets 10% of that is
Guess what. I went on two field trips in two days! We went to the Iowa Capital and the Des Moines Art center. I will be talking about the capitol first.
On Tuesday we went to the capitol. It was exiting. I learned a lot of history about Iowa and its capitol. We learned that there was a fire because someone dropped a candle and it lit the house of representatives room on fire. They all thought it was all going to burn down. The person who dropped the candle was the one who saved the capitol. As we all know (Or as you should know) you need oxygen for fire to burn. So he made it so there where no places where oxygen could get in. So they stopped the fire and the capitol was saved. They could not use a hose because that day it was -20 degrees outside. Also it happened in 1904. We Went through almost the whole capitol. Some people wanted to go up to the Wiper Gallery. It was Up over 100 stairs in total to go up. I did not like it because i am afraid of heights and it was really high. It was fun still but i did not like it as much as other things. But i still went up. Here is a pic of the Capitol. Also if you are not from Iowa and you don't know this, Yes that is real gold on the top.
On Wednesday I went to the art center and the Sculptor park. It was all very cool. My favorite sculptor was T8. It was very cool. At first when i looked at it i thought it was just a bunch of Red metal bars but then i saw that it was more than that. There was a T and an 8 in the middle of it and then i understand it more. Then we all went to the art center. My favorite one at the art center was holy Red. I liked most of the art and it was really fun as i said before. I liked both field trip. Also if you want to go to either of them they are open Monday - Saturday thanks for reading!
So i just made a project about a artist named Alexander Calder. He was a famous artiest. This animoto will tell you lots about him and his paintings. I don't want to spoil anything so here it is.
This weekend i ran a fun night game. It was the football one. I got hit lots of times by little kids. One even hit me in the face... Well it was fun at least. That was the biggest part of my weekend. I ran the game with James. After it we got a whole FREE pizza. FREE. That was cool. Our family didn't win anything in the raffle. I had fun either way. Well that was pretty much my weekend.
