Status Quo vs. Working on Change

The eighth grade history assignment was to find an example of both the promoters of change, and the people who want to keep the status quo. We were allowed to be with partner. My partner chose to represent the promoters of change. Her promoter of change was Lucy Terry. I chose to do the people that wanted to keep the status quo. My example was the Duluth Lynchings, it was when three black circus workers were accused of raping a white woman. Look at my slide show to see more!

Genius Hour; Take 4!

For my genius hour, Meghan and I made a documentary movie on Miley Cyrus otherwise known as Hannah Montana. We were going to do a music video but it wasn’t possible; We couldn’t get the music on the computer. I learned a lot about Miley Cyrus in this project. But we used pictures from google instead of flickr, so we aren’t allowed to put it up on our blog. I did have fun in genius hour, like usual. (:

Skype Session with Mr. Davis

In my History class right we are learning about American History. Mrs. Krebs then asked Kennith C. Davis to Skype with our class to answer some of our history questions. He has written a few books in the series Don’t Know Much About. He answered a lot of my questions and made a whole lot more things clear. One thing that I learned that the slave states had more votes.

We didn’t have enough time to answer all of the questions. Some of the questions that we didn’t have time to answer are “What is the difference between Democratic and Republican? How many presidents have not been born into the political elite?” and a couple more. I liked having him talk to us, and I think that my class should do it more often.

I Love You

Every girl loves a kiss
Every mister loves a miss
Every cat loves hiss
And I love you

Every player loves a game
Every girl loves some fame
Every person loves a name
And I love you

Every volleyball loves an ace
Every lawyer loves a case
Every field loves a base
And I love you

Basketball..

Today is our first basketball game, we have had four practices with everybody. Our practice is with the 7th and 8th graders, but games are different. I am so excited for our game, but a little afraid because we are playing a good team. I was out last year with a dislocated knee cap, it sucked so bad just sitting on the bench. This year we are combining junior high sports with a local school, so that’s also a little different.. But we will just have to see how and goes! Wish my team luck!! (:

All About Iowa

Iowa is known for it’s farming, mostly corn and beans.
I live on a family farm, that is 128 years old. Some of the things I like doing on the farm are four wheeling and hanging out with friends in the summer, and in the winter pretty much just staying inside unless I go out and snowmobile with my friends and siblings. We have cattle, goats, one dog, and just some farm cats. Another thing that I like doing on the farm is shooting hoops outside.
Another thing that I do in the summer is go to town and hang out with friends. I live about two miles out from town on gravel, so sometimes I just ride bike into town. It’s a small town but there are still a lot of things to do.
And some things to do in the winter are go shopping. Even though I live about an hour away from the mall, I still go a lot. And some other things to do is to go sledding with friends or pull each other with the snowmobile.
And that’s what I do in Iowa.
