My eco dome is going very well. I don't want to make any changes to it. My plants are healthy and growing, there isn't any mold on the carrots, and there is condensation on the walls. My cricket is very healthy. It loves to jump and climb on the plants, but spends most of it's time sitting on the sponge. you can see this from the picture.


This time I was able to create my own eco dome. The eco dome didn't last very long. It only lasted 1-3 days. There wasn't much condensation on the walls, but there were wavey lines on the walls. The plants looked healthy, and there wasn't any smell. The temperature in eco dome was three degrees higher than the room temperature. When I checked on the cricket, it was on it's back, and it looked like it was on the verge of death. I think it was the heat of the eco dome, and the dehydration that killed my cricket.

Changes: I think what I'll do next is to include wet sponge to provide the the cricket with water. I will also provide the cricket with shredded carrots.





I wasn't able to have an eco dome the first day, so I will be observing one of my classmates eco dome to see what they did well. Shayan and Phuong's Eco dome lasted two and a half weeks. it did very well. Their cricket was found dead in a little puddle they had made for the cricket. the puddle was made with the bottom of the plastic bottle. What most likely happened was that the cricket fell into the puddle, and wasn't able to get out. when they opened their eco dome, it smelled disgusting.



The hardest part of this journalism unit was instead of looking for information and researching online, most of my information was on research that I had to go and ask people.

My greatest achievement was finding enough information to be ale to write a Journalism article with a sufficient amount of writing.

What I want to work in quarter 2, is I need to get better at making sure I check the rubric more instead of assuming that my article is done, just because I had enough writing.

Today I make three things. I made both of the eyes as decorations for the front face, and then I made the clock out of a CD. I think that my group members did a lot of good work, they were all on task, and they were focused the whole time. I think that our group is doing very well. We all work very well, and are able to get things done. Our plan for the next five classes, is to keep decorating the front face by making things, then adding them on, and painting. After, we will stick everything together, then I think we will be done

There weren’t many doctors in peasant towns, and when they were called to heal people in castle, the doctors would become jealous, and accuse them of being witches. People who were caught were taken away by soldiers, and were  persecuted for hundreds for years. To test if people were actually witches, they would tie a very heavy rock to them, and throw them underwater. If they came up, then that would mean they were a witch. But obviously they never floated. The wise women were very good with herbs and remedies, which people thought didn’t follow Christian belief. People believed that sickness was a punishment from god. There were many witch hunters who believed that witches existed, and that they were causing trouble, but when king Callaham ruled, he banned the idea of witch hunters and decided that witches didn’t exist.
