I learned that people like to settle in places near fresh water because people can drink and use the water for farming. I also learned, about papyrus and how it can be used. For example, it can be used to make rope and other materials. I learned about advantages and disadvantages of different geographical features. For example, the nile has fresh water but it can also have dangerous animals. I am proud of my video because it went well when I was recording and I had no mistakes. I am most proud of how I built my world because I tried to make it look as realistic as possible. For example, I made the nile 4 blocks wide to make it look large. If I were to do this again I would try to read my script more fluently and set up the place I am recording to be easier to see my computer and my script at the same time.
In Spanish we made a video about the words we have learned so far. I hope you enjoy!
I just finished my memoir! I worked really hard to write and design the whole thing. Now I have it here for you to read and look at. You can download my memoir on any apple device! I hope you enjoy it!
I went to Cat Tien last week and It was fun.
I liked when we got to go and hide the moon bears food then watch them Find it. We split up into 2 groups and the other half got to have peanut butter on trees and fruit on different things. The second group got to make food for the moon bears.
One challenge for me was when we had to sit down with all the ants and bugs. But I overcame it by not thinking about the bugs.
We learned a lot about sustainability like how the moon bear centre was sustainable and how the primate centre is sustainable. The moon bear cent was sustainable because they have a good cage for the bares and keep helping them and the government has made a law about not keeping moon bears for their bile. The primate centre is sustainable because they help the primates and then most of them go out in to the forest on the island or the mainland and they are trying there hardest to keep doing what they need to do.
I think next year we could play more games and fun activities and make sure the rooms are all good.
I think I did good with my Contrast because I first had a meeting but now my final has a exceeding. I did good making layers and adding a blue and gold Macaw to pull everything together and make it look 3D. I also added blue and green background for the text to make it stand out.
I next time I am going to put more pull togethers like the parrot.

Hello! Today I am going to tell you about my science experiment. This week me and my partner Billy worked on a science experiment. In my science experiment I learned that the baking soda a makes a reaction with sodium polyacrylate. I also learned that sodium polyacrylate and water make a solid. The best part of the experiment was at first the water fizzed then after it turned to a solid. I think we could make it more interesting if we add calcium carbonate.
