History Day Reflection

My History Day Project was on Saint Valentine. 1) Saint Valentine was, surprise, a Saint. A Saint is someone who is acknowledged as holy and virtuous. My category was the exhibit category, where you make something people look at and read, usually with decorations, colorfulness, and tape. Lots, and lots, of tape(my partner and I used glitter tape :D). 2) I like how aesthetically pleasing our board turned out. 3) That he was arrested more than once and that more than one person has his name. 4) The research, because he was born in the 3rd century, so no one he knew is alive, or their grandkids. 5) I learned that you need to look at every website before you do your research. 6) I don't know, I think we did pretty solidly. 7) Getting the research done, because we weren't that sure we'd be able to. 9) I don't really have much to say except try you hardest, work your hardest, and don't procrastinate! BTW; My partner is/was Kaylee Pringle.

Shakespeare Reflection

Write about the change in your feelings from first hearing we were doing a Shakespeare unit through now.  Explain specifically what events changed your feelings.

My first thought when we found out we were going to do a Shakespeare unit was... 'cool'. And not 'Coooooool!'. just... 'cool'. If there was an equivalent to a cool with only 1 'o' to emphasize how unenthusiastic(while still interested) I was, that would be it. Now I think 'THAT WAS SO FUN! I HOPE WE GET TO DO THAT AGAIN!'

In The Taming of the Shrew, was Kate tamed in the end?  Explain your opinion with examples from the text.

Personally, I don't think so, at least not all the way. In the end when she gave her speech about obedience, I feel like it was more a speech about willingness to serve others. She talks about a debt a wife owes to her husband, and that we should put our hand under their feet, but I feel like it was more about willingness to respect each other. My thoughts about this are that during the movie, Petruchio wasn't fighting to make her obedient really, they were fighting giving each other respect. They didn't want to give each other respect, but for a healthy marriage, you need respect. You have to have willingness before you have obedience. I went kind of off topic there, but none the less, Kate isn't being tame, she just found the willingness to obey, and they both found the willingness to respect each other, and that, my fellow students, is what is most important in a marriage

Westward Expansion: The Mormon Trail

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1rdr-kUt-fmiV08zCbzMGx1g1biPTnDMP1WIoKOvDN5k/edit#slide=id.p
My partner for this project was Hayden Crawford. Our project was on Nauvoo, The Mormon Trail, and when the Mormons arrived in Utah! FYI: I kept spelling Mormons Moromons. Lots of editing took place :| It wasn't the most fun to edit.

Independent Project Reflection

https://prezi.com/e3r7lqlr0el6/sleep/

My topic was sleep. The reason I chose this topic was because, well, How much do you know on sleep, 5th period? See, not much. Scientist's still can't explain how or why we sleep! All they know is that its vital.

All the facts that people said 'Woah!' or 'Whaaaaaat? No!' because it makes me feel like an absolute PRO! YEAH!

That you can survive for 3 months without food, but only 11 days without sleep. And that snails can sleep for 3 years.

LESS TEXT! TO MUCH TEXT! NEED A SCRIPT! NEED BIGGER PICS! DX

Thank You! :D

Invent Iowa Reflection

             My problem is filling buckets, because they are WAY to hard to fill if they're bigger than your sink. Different reasons this is a problem is, (1) they're way to hard to fill with a hose because injuries, weather, heaviness, etc, etc. Plus, those water sprayer thingies always act up, & if they don't, that would take way too long anyway.
            My invention helps this problem because all you have to do is put it together & turn on the water. Some more benefits are it is portable, easy to put together & simple.
            Some things that went well are: building the actual invention & finding materials was pretty simple. Some things that were a little frustrating were: getting it to work, fit, & not tear.
            I'm happy with my invention the way it is to be perfectly honest, but if I had to, I would reinforce it a little more, but that's pretty much it.
           Do not procrastinate! Always get it done quickly! But  getting things done quickly doesn't mean not putting in time & effort. Always remember that. That is my advice to you.
