«U.O.I Portfolio»

Our central idea was:The World Changes due to Natural Processes & Human Innovation.

The things that we learned were…

  •  Will a mountain last forever?
  • Why is there sand at the beach?
  • Can a volcano pop up in your backyard?
  • Whats strong enough to make a canyon?

I want to share a piece of work that I think is awesome.

It’s Can a volcano pop up in your backyard?

We learned things like:

  • That the ring of fire is not really in the shape of a circle, click HERE if you want to see the ring of fire.
  • Actually the ring of fire is not even a polygon!

People Of Determination

People of determination are people who have disabilities or problems like being deaf or being blind or people who have no arms or legs.

Jamie Brewer was a famous actress who unfortunately suffered from a disease called Down Syndrome.

What is Down Syndrome?

Down Syndrome is a case when a person’s brain doesn’t fully develop, it is like having the body of a 20 year old but you have the mind of a 10 year old.

In my class I had to research the same person Jamie Brewer.

Here is a picture of Jamie Brewer.



Hello readers 

I want to tell you about how I learned to do a back flip.

I was in the car with my mom, I was SUPER bored because I started my gymnastics class at 5:00 and it was only 3;20. My mom was to busy on a phone call and my sister was ALSO on her phone, so I just had to wait another 2 hours in the car.


“YES!!” FINALLY! I could go inside. I went inside and started doing my warm up. My coach told me to go to the trampoline.And I started to bounce on the trampoline And I was doing front flips and thats when my coach told me to do back flips, at first he was helping me and I was ok, but then he told me to do them ALONE.

At first I thought he was joking but then he got off the trampoline and told me to do it. Now I KNEW he was serious,  I started to do little bounces then my coach told me to bounce higher, I prayed to god that I wouldn’t die. And then I jumped! I had my eyes closed and then suddenly I felt my feet touch the trampoline. I did it!!!

My coach started to clap and I thought of how happy I was I couldn’t wait to tell my mom that I did a back flip! I was never ever more happier in my life.

Ben always wanted to be with the cool kids at the school he goes to and he always thought that they were so nice.  And one day he got his wish, but it turns out that the cool kids just bullied other kids and they mistreated Ben.

Ben was a 7 year old boy and his favorite color was blue, and he was always being teased because he was a nerd and he was super gullible, the reason that he was so gullible was because everyone could play the same prank on him every single day.

Ben used to be a nice kid but when he became friends with the cool kids at his school he became a BULLY! [DUN DUN DUNNNN!!!] One day Ben thought that he should go tell his parents about the bullies and that’s exactly what he did. “Mom, dad I need to talk to you.” “Sure honey.” said Ben’s mom as she was cleaning the dishes. “What is it son?” said his dad as he continued to read his morning newspaper, “I have some friends… but they bully kids.” his parents dropped what was in their hands, “YOU ARE FRIENDS WITH WHO!!!!!!” yelled his parents at the same time.  “bullies.” said Ben with a soft voice.  “Look son, bullies are mean and it is not even legal in our country.  Tomorrow when you go to school I want you to leave this group of bullies.” Ben’s father made Ben promise to leave the bullies.

The next day Ben was eating with his friends at a bench when one of them said “Yo Ben, come over here and throw away my trash.” Ben didn’t move he said again “Ben I thought I told you to come to throw my trash?!”

Ben replied “You thought, you didn’t say.” they got up and they yelled “GET HIM!!!”Ben ran for his life and suddenly he saw something, it was a teacher! He went to her and told her that those bullies were after him.  

The teacher told the bullies to stop, she asked them “What on earth are you doing chasing a KID!!” she yelled at them for a while and then told the principal and the bullies got detention. Ben gave a sigh of relief “Finally” he said trying to catch his breath. “YAY!!!!!” Ben celebrated with joy, he felt as if he just  got cured from the plague.

After a while when Ben was done celebrating his victory he thought that he should say sorry to all the kids he had bullied,

“Sorry for bullying you guys, I did not mean to bully you but I was too scared to stand up to them. I’m really sorry, can you please forgive me?” The kids looked at each other, then they said

“We forgive you but you owe us now, ok?”

“Okay.” said Ben glad that he had some friends again.

“Do you want to play soccer with us?” they asked“Sure!!” Ben said happily and was once again the nicest kid in school. “AAAAGGGGHHHH!!!”screamed the bullies with boredom.

I want to share this because I think that children can learn to make real friends not ones that are mean or misbehave.

The things that I learned were that all fiction books have a theme. A theme is the point of the story or the life lesson that the character learns in the story. I also learned how characters can change in the exposition, the rising acton, the climax or the falling action.

An EXPOSITION,  is the beginning of a story or the introduction. The RISING ACTION,  is like what is happening before the main part of the story. Next is the CLIMAX, a climax is the main important part in the story, a book can have more than one climax. And finally the FALLING ACTION, and that is like the the end of the book and the writers tell you what has happened to all the characters before they finish the book.

I could improve by putting more and more detail an that I could edit and remove all the un-important parts of the story.

I was being reflective because I was always trying to improve my writing.
