94% of teens use social media, and most of the parents are concerned about their child’s privacy being exposed and meeting strangers. Parents should trust their child about how they use social media, but it is a complete invasion of privacy if parents go on teens’ facebook page and look on their phones. For all that, parents shouldn’t be overly trusting the teen, because teens can fall into stranger’s traps online. Parents shouldn’t be invading their children’s privacy, but parents also shouldn’t be naive.

Parents invade their children’s privacy when they monitor their social media. It is equivalent to spying on their children, and most of the teens think that it’s not okay. In this quote, Devan, a student in high school states that it’s a complete of invasion of privacy if parents go on their children’s facebook pages and look on their phones. In other words, parents should trust their child about the use of social media. As a result, trusting is an important part of a relationship because it shows teens that their parents have confidence in them. For these reasons, privacy is the most important freedom in a person’s life, so parents should make clear how dangerous it is to fall into online traps.

However, parents shouldn’t be overly trusting in their teens because teens may get into danger. In addition, parents often trust teens because they consider that their child can behave appropriately online. According to a father of three teens, if parents trust and respect teens, but at some point, the teen starts lying to their parents, then, of course, the teen would lose that trust. As a result, truth is the most essential part of the relationship between parents and teens. If teens are honest, then their parents can rely on them while using Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc. In conclusion, parents should be aware and show care about how teens use social media.

To summarize, parents should be conscience but at the same time, they should belief in their teens. Trust everyone like how you want to be trusted, it enhances the relationship between the teen and parents. For the future, you should listen to what you parents tell you to do, and show them that you can be obedient.

Dragon’s apprentice slogan

-Keep your identity safe

Since our group is making ID card holders, I thought that this slogan will be a good one. If I am a customer, I would think that the holders are strong enough and I won’t lose my ID card at all. When customers see this slogan it feels like they have to trust us, and that’s kind of a big challenge for us because we need to keep their trust. That means we have to make our product a trustable one and after they bought it they don’t regret it. When I hear this slogan I would also want to look at what this product is, because I would want to know what it is that can keep my identity safe. I think this slogan achieved what our thought was of making this product, we thought that ID card holders out there selling were too boring and too original. Our product can be one that you want, and it can also keep your identity safe.

Gummy Bear Government

In Social studies, we were doing a project in the class called Gummy Bear Government. What we do is, we bring gummy bears and we have to put them into a  form of government in Ancient Greece.


In this picture, there is the king with the crown and there are citizens listening to the king talking.


In this picture, there are 3 people that are ruling the others.


For this scene, I had one of the gummy bears having a knife because tyrants usually just kill the leader to be the next illegal leader, and some of the tyrants wasn’t so nice too.


Democracy is when all the citizens share the power of ruling so I have gummy bears holding up signs of the word vote.

Before learning about this unit I know nothing about these forms of government. After this unit I learned a lot of words and forms of government and how it work. I think it’s important to learn about forms of government because then you will understand what is a best choice for you country if one day you decided to work in the government. I think democracy works the best because all the citizens can vote for what they want, and that also means that they share the power of ruling.

Ancient Egypt- Minecraft Video


What are three ways this project helped you understand how water, vegetation, and topography influence Ancient human settlement?

The 2 bodies of water in influence the people in Ancient Egypt. The Nile river in Ancient Egypt influence people living there because now they can drink fresh water, they can prevent themselves from diseases, and there is fish in the water so they can feed themselves. For the vegetation, papyrus and reeds was what I had in my video. The papyrus influence people living in Ancient Egypt because they can make ropes and paper out of the plant. The reeds influence people living in Ancient Egypt because they can make baskets and tools out of reeds. The topography influence people in Ancient Egypt because they can protect themselves from the invaders since they are in the desert.

What are 2 parts of your project that you’re proud of?

One thing I am really proud of is that I made my Nile river really long, and it took me so long to do that. The second thing that I am really proud of is that in the video I talked about the advantage of the Nile river and the Mediterranean sea.

What is 1 part of your project you would do differently?

If I can redo this project I would spend more time on doing the vegetation part. When I was making the plants I didn’t rely make it that clear what the plant was and in Minecraft it didn’t really look like it is suppose to look like in reality. I really enjoy doing this project, I hope we can do it again.

Reflection On Book Review Vlog

So for the past few weeks in language arts our lit circle group read a book called The Raft. After reading the book we have to make a vlog about the book, we have to include introduction, a short summary, conflict of the book, the theme of the book, and we have to give quotes to prove about the conflict and theme. In this vlog I think what I achieved was that in the begging I gave a introduction to the book, then I talked about the summary with out giving away the ending. The thing I think I also did well was that I gave the rating and gave the recommendations.  I think the things I need to improve on is I didn’t give a quote to prove the conflict of the story and also I didn’t talked about the quote for the theme. After filming the video I didn’t turn my work on time so I think that’s something I also need to improve on.

P.S  Watch my video from my last blog!
