Mishpacha Project

So this is a project about me interviewing my parents and researching my name and writing it down. I loved doing this project because a lot of the questions I thought nobody would know but I realized my parents knew so much more than I thought, and I had so much fun learning. I had no clue where any of my family originated from.

Life In 2057

This is what I think life will be like in 2057.

 

I think schools will be permanently online with these devices that project your full body on calls with other people. I also think that will happen with shopping where people will be able to look at things and feel them and decide if they want to buy them and then it will be delivered to their house. Speaking of houses,  I think there will be a lot more apartments for all the people. I also think that houses will be a lot bigger and some might even be stacked on top of each other to make room for all the new projects, like very fast trains or self-driving cars. But when self-driving cars are first invented there will be a lot of accidents.  They might have even invented flying cars that are similar to helicopters. I think music will be bad compared to what we listen to today but people will get used to it and like it a lot. I also think it will be a mix of pop and rock. I think movies will have a lot more special effects and CGI, but the action and intensity will be very good and everybody will like them. I think that Tesla will be one of the most popular car brands and they will have discovered a lot of cool things to do with cars. Not very many people will be outside because all the shopping will be done online. This will cause a lot of people to not get as much exercise. So a lot of people will get treadmills and a lot of new cardio machines. I think that in 2057 a lot of small brands and stores will get shut down. Even some bigger brands. Apple will be doing really well with all their new products, like Apple Shoes, and Apple Garbage cans, just really random things, and by this point, they will probably be up to iPhone 37 Pro Max or something. People will probably have rooms in their homes dedicated to growing plants instead of putting them outside. I think that a lot of people instead of walking with roller stake or drive hoverboards everywhere. Prosthetics will be very advanced, like robot arms or legs. Virtually reality will be very popular because it will be so exciting and realistic. Last but not least I think COVID will be gone!

Here is a recap of all the inventions that I said in this post:

  1. Full body cameras for online school
  2. Screen to see products before you buy them, online at home.
  3. Self Driving Cars
  4.  Flying Cars
  5. Cool New Cars
  6. Cardio Machines 
  7. Random Apple Products
  8. iPhone 37 Pro Max
  9. New Rooms For Growing Plants
  10. New Prosthetics
  11. Realistic Virtual Reality

Truth And Reconciliaton

Reconciliation means restoring a relationship. In this case, reconciliation is restoring the relationships from Canada to Indigenous people. This week we did an activity on the 94 Calls to Action. I only got to read 1-24 but they all sound really important and I hope that the government can do most if not all the calls to action.  I think it would be beneficial if our school did not just teach us about Indigenous people for one week every year, but we should learn it for a portion of the year on maybe have a period for that for the whole year.

 

The residential school crisis is very bad. Every child should have been able to speak their own language, study their culture, and be themselves. The Residential schools tried to basically erase who the kids were. They were stolen from their parents and changed from Indigenous people to Christian people. So few people know these languages so the government is trying to create schools that teach kids these languages. In some religions long hair was part of their culture, so the kids with long hair would need to have their hair cut off. The fact that these Residential schools were open for three whole generations, and the last one closed in only 1996 is just a terrible thought.

So many children got killed and some thought that trying to escape and having a chance at dying would be better than being abused. The people who did live and got out had severe mental issues and couldn’t be good parents or adults, and the trauma was passed down through multiple generations.

Endangered Animal Propaganda Project

The animal I chose to do was the blue whale, and the 2 types of propaganda I used were bandwagon and emotional appeal. Bandwagon inspires people to “join the crowd”. Emotional appeal shows a strong emotion that makes the reader want to help.

Short Story

One hot summer day in Florida, USA an 11-year-old girl named Julie and her friend Jose were watching the movie UP. In the movie an old man makes his house fly with balloons. “I’m going to make my house fly,” she exclaimed! Jose thought she had gone too far. But Julie didn’t care; she wanted to make her house a rocket. She needed three key ingredients. 

 

The first ingredient was G Fuel. 

To get to it she needed to do a lot of parkour in the air and if you fell you would fall into sticky slime and cameras would see you and sound the alarm. It was on main street because if somebody saw someone trying to do it they could catch them, but luckily it was a weekday so everybody was at school or work. Only the pro parkour people could do the parkour. She started off strong and was making every jump but on one jump her foot slipped and she fell. But Jose came to the rescue and threw a trampoline under her and she bounced up to the next platform that happened every time she failed. But on the last jump, Jose had no more trampolines. He shouted, “You have to make this jump”! 

She made it! At the top, there was a safe that was unlocked for some reason. She took a lot and jumped down onto the trampoline safe and sound. 

 

The next ingredient was chang. It wasn’t hard to get. You could buy it at the local supermarket. The only problem was that it cost $100,000. So Julie had to rob a bank.

 

 First, she entered the bank and withdrew $100 so she wouldn’t be suspicious. Next, she hid until the bank teller went on his lunch break. When he did Julie sneakily crawled toward the teller’s area and on his desk was a keycard. Now she had to get to the bank owner’s office. Julie found a tunnel with a door that had a 7 letter padlock. Julie thought and thought and she figured out that the answer was Cassidy the bank owner’s cat. She knew this because Julie’s parents were good friends of the bank owner. She typed in the name C-A-S-S-I-D-Y  Julie went through the tunnel very quietly. Once she was in the bank owner’s office she found a ladder that led to where all the money was. Julie wasn’t greedy so she only took what she needed. So she took $101,000. Julie went up a ladder and found herself at the top of the bank. She didn’t know how to get down but then she saw a trampoline that Jose dropped on the way to the slime pit. Julie jumped on the trampoline and made it. 

 

The 3rd and final ingredient was

 a lava crystal. It was very rare because you had to go to a volcano. They are also only at the bottom and every volcano only has one. They went to the nearest volcano which was about a one-hour drive away. There was only a 50% chance for there to be a tunnel all the way to the lava crystal. When she got there she saw a tunnel. She was so excited! She ventured down the tunnel but it was just short of the bottom. She was very sad because she had done all this work and came all this way just to fail. 

 

She started walking up the tunnel. She looked back and saw that the lava crystal was on the wall of the volcano. She sprinted back down the tunnel and reached for it but she was just short. But Jose threw another trampoline down and he landed on it. ” Where do you keep getting these trampolines?” Julie asked.

 “My dad is a trampoline maker” Replied Jose. Jose grabbed on to Julie’s arm and Julie reached and grabbed it. 

 

The reason Julie got $101,000 instead of  $100,000 was because she needed a bit of money to buy some smaller ingredients. 

 

Her house was ready to fly. She pressed the start button and… It was a perfect lift-off. But then one of the engines was failing, then they started falling. She thought this was the end for her. She looked out the window and saw 1,000 trampolines layed out under the house. She screamed,”HOW DOES HE HAVE SO MANY TRAMPOLINES”!? She bounced down safe and sound. The only injury was a scraped knee.

Public Speaking

This is my Public Speaking from 2021, I chose to do it on what if dinosaurs were still alive.

 

Have you wondered what it would be like if dinosaurs still roamed the earth, and lived amongst us? Dinosaurs have been extinct for so long nobody really knows. So today I am going to fill in the blanks and tell you what I think it might be like if dinosaurs were still alive. Anyways, the 3 things I will cover are how life would be like, would dinosaurs be good pets, and what would we do with all dinosaur poop and pee. (Yes, I know it’s a bit gross). 

 

Good morning teachers, judges, students, and special guests. 


As we all probably know, life would be a bit “interesting”, to say the least, if dinosaurs were still alive. Especially with all the big dinosaurs, they would crush everything. I think we could get them to go in fields so they didn’t destroy everything. Also, the carnivores would be a problem because they may or may not want to eat humans. They would have to be trained to eat what we eat like chicken, burgers, hotdogs, fish, and other meat. A lot of dinosaurs fight so they would have to be taught to live in peace. The dinosaurs are very big and when they walk it would be very loud, so some companies could sell giant dino slippers so they could be quieter. We would talk about them so much that we might make up shorter and funny  names for them like meatasaurus, vegasaurus, and bothasaurus. Instead of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Like they do in Jurassic park.

 

Some dinosaurs might be good pets. The big dinos would not be good pets because they would need so much food and water. They would also need a ton of room because of their size. Baby dinos might be good pets for a bit but eventually, they will be too big. The dinos that stay small would have to go through a lot of training to be a good pet. There wouldn’t be very many that you could have as a pet but there are some, like Aquilops, Gasparinasaura, Dilong, and a few more. It would have to learn not to eat things they shouldn’t, not to break things, and not make your house a mess.  In parks, there might be dino hours and human hours. At certain times pet dinosaurs could go in the parks and at other times kids and other people could go to the park.

 

Dinosaurs are so big and so is their poop and there would also be a lot of pee. Firstly we would have enough fertilizer to last forever. Normally poo isn’t but dinosaur poop could be turned into compost, which would help the earth be a lot cleaner and greener. If we can turn human pee into drinkable water then I’m sure we could do that same thing with dinosaur pee. Some places don’t have much clean water. If we could turn dinosaur pee into drinking water they would have more water and they wouldn’t die. Lastly, even though we could use dinosaur pee and poo in all those different ways we might still have a lot so I think that humans could come up with a way to use dinosaur waste as renewable energy.

 

Now that I’ve covered that you can probably see how difficult and dangerous life would be with all these weird things, but some of these would actually make life easier, like pets, fertilizer, and we would have infinite energy. In my opinion, I don’t think it would be a great idea to have dinosaurs on planet earth.

Innovation Day

Introduction

Have you ever wondered how solar energy gets turned into electricity? That’s what you are going to learn in this blog post. Because I and my partner chose to do solar energy. We learned so much about solar energy. Solar panels are really cool. They are made up of tiny solar cells which are usually made of silicone. They are very similar to humans who are made of human cells. Solar panels are used in lots of places like rooftops, power plants, and more! Solar panels are collect solar energy and turn it into useable electricity. Solar energy is the most efficient energy on the planet. The machines used to turn solar energy into electricity do not impact the environment that much, and they don’t pollute the planet which makes them very environmentally friendly. Each solar particle is called a photon. A second way to use solar energy is to take the heat from solar radiation and use it in a bunch of different.

 

Empathize

People are going outside a lot more because of Covid 19. So in our science unit, we are trying to take renewable energy to parks so we can have fun and not hurt the environment. There are a lot of problems in the world but this is a very big one, especially with Covid 19 which is why we are trying to fix it. Covid is bad because you can’t see family or friends and you also can’t go to some stores and restaurants. It is hard for families because they can’t see other members of their family. People who are less fortunate than us have a hard time because they can’t afford the things to keep them safe. But there are some positives about Covid. Firstly, when people get sick they can still go to school on their computer. Also because of Covid a lot of people are staying home, so places aren’t as busy so we can get around a lot faster and we can have more free time. I remember when I was about to go to Florida and I couldn’t because of Covid 19 and I was really sad because I was really excited to go.

 

Ideate

We chose to use solar panels they are really easy to use on the tops of things or beside things. They also can be used all the time because they get energy from the sun but during the day they are also storing energy to use when there is no sun or in the winter. Solar panels are also a lot cheaper than wind turbines. Solar panels cost about $20,000 but wind turbines cost between 1. million dollars and 2 million dollars. They are also very fast and efficient. Solar panels are also very cool so, at parks, kids can be curious and when they are bigger they can look into them more and be inspired.

 

Our Project

 The model of our playground is in Minecraft. There is a playhouse with lights inside powered by solar panels. We have an elevator that goes up to a cool roller coaster. There is a magical zoo with upside-down animals and rainbow sheep. It doesn’t use any energy so we couldn’t use solar energy. Ther is a solar-powered ride that gets spun around by a machine, that is powered by solar panels. There is an area where you put on special boots and wings and you can jump really high and you get a boost from fans that are powered by solar energy, and you can fly down. There is also a diving board that you can jump off of and fall into a bouncy castle. There is also an entrance to the bouncy castle. The bouncy castle is blown up by solar panels. Our last ride is another roller coaster. When you ride it fireworks go off and they are very pretty.

Holes Book Review

In school we have book club this month I had the book Holes.

 

I would recommend this book to people who are in grade 5 and up. It is very intense at some parts which I like a lot. It is also not too long and the vocabulary is not that hard. Different parts give you different feelings about the book. My favourite parts are when Mr. Sir got scratched because he was mean he deserved it. Also, every part with Kate Barlow is good because there is some mystery and she had a very interesting life. If you read the book you can see what I am talking about and even more. Have Fun Reading!
