Malala lived in a place where the Taliban took over and they banned girls from going to school they even banned music and T.V so Malala worked with the B.B.C to launch a blog in 2009 she was just 11 years old and wrote about the harsh restriction faced under Taliban rule and shared fears that schools would be shut down or destroyed to protect her identity she used a fake name the Taliban launched an attack near where Malala lived forcing more than a million people to flee Malala was sent to live with relatives in the country side mean while Ziauddin travelled to the regions capitol and openly criticized the Taliban his bravery inspired her to speak out about educational rights.

opinion writing

Opinion writing is when you write something to persuade someone or to change someones mind about something.

Opinion writing is different from other kinds of writing because opinion writing is when you write something to persuade someone or to change someones mind about something.

Opinion writing is different from factual writing because opinion writing is about an opinion its not true its just what someone thinks about someone or something.

Some of the types of opinion writing I did was about my favorite animal, my favorite sport, and my favorite thing to do.

It was easy to write about how good the thing you’re trying to defend but its hard to get someone to dislike someone or something.

Animal research project

  1. I used 3 sources to make this project the first one was a book called FROGS written by NIC Bishop the second one was www.worldbookonline.com and the third one is https://onekindplanet.org/animal/frog/.

And then I took notes in my writing journal.

 

After that I made a book on https://docs.google.com/ for the kindergartners without much info about frogs then I drew a diagram of a frog metamorphosis and a page of facts about frogs also on https://docs.google.com/ for the second and seventh graders.

 

  1. I had to make the book for the kindergartners more understandable so they would get what I was talking about so instead of writing the measurements of things I wrote for example that is as tall as two whole giraffes. When we presented to the kindergartners it was hard to get their attention, but when we presented to the second and seventh graders it was a lot easier.

 

  1. I learned that when you have a different audience it can get a lot harder.

 

  1. I liked researching about frogs a lot, and I’m gonna try to get info that grabs their attention next time.

 

  1. It was hard presenting and easy writing the info it was interesting learning facts about frogs.

 

  1.  I think we did this project firstly because we are learning when we research about animals and secondly because it might help us in the future if we need to present something.

Roller-Coaster & Energy

When we did the experiment we used a foam tube and marbles. We rolled the marbles down the foam tube most of the time it didn’t work. The experiment had to do with energy because when the marbles were rolling they were causing wind like wind energy.

Intro to Decimals

  1. I see decimals in money.
  2. Four examples of decimals are on receipts in stores on homework (sometimes) on tests (also sometimes).
  3. I need to learn about decimals because if I’m paying for something and the cashier makes pay extra I wouldn’t know.
