Check out students' posters! Students researched an animal and created a poster that cleverly displayed the information they learned.
Have you ever wanted to know how stars are formed? Do you even know what a star really is? Well, if you think that it’s just a hot ball of light, then you’re wrong. A star is a huge sphere of very hot glowing gas. Stars produce their own light and energy by a process called nuclear fusion. Fusion happens when lighter elements are forced to become heavier elements. When this happens a tremendous amount of energy is created causing the star to heat up and shine. Stars come in different color and sizes. Our sun is a medium sized yellowish star. Stars smaller than our sun is red and stars bigger than our sun are blue. When you’re outside at night and you look at those tiny stars, well there not as tiny as you think they are, most stars are bigger than our planet. If you don’t know how a star is formed, here are some facts on how they are formed.
First, a cloud of gas and dust are disturbed by the gravity of a nearby explosion. The disturbance causes clumps to form and draw gas inwards. The clumps start to collapse, the collapsing clumps begin to rotate and flatten into a disk of gas and dust. The disk rotates faster and faster pulling more material inwards, creating a hot dense core called a protostar. When the protostar becomes hot enough, hydrogen atoms begin to fuse, producing helium and energy.
Hopefully you have learned a lot about stars.
Sadie and Carter are siblings. They both are alike in many ways, but they are also different in many ways. Here are some ways they are different.
First, Sadie cares about her appearance for example once she wore makeup, furry boots, and furry clothes. Then she found out that fur isn’t good for magic so she went crazy. Second, Carter doesn’t care about his appearance for example he wore pajamas while fighting a monster! Also, Sadie only cares about herself for example she had a servant when they were on a ship the servant asked if she wanted food she said shut up and go away. But, Carter cares about everyone (except her sister) when Zia died (Carters friend) he cried like crazy, but Sadie didn’t care. Also, Sadie thinks ahead, for example when there uncle left and the baboon was guarding the library Sadie brought cheerios to give to the baboon. But, Carter never thinks ahead for example he almost killed himself fighting a monster! And he didn’t even defeat it. There also both risk takers for example they risked their lives to save the world. Also they’re both host of gods. Finally they’re both magicians.
As you can see they’re not very alike. You probably think siblings would be alike but they have been apart for years.
Students task was to write a well-structured opinion essay filled with evidence supporting their claims. Special features include:
Have you ever been to a baseball game? Isn’t it fun? Don’t you hate that there not enough security? I think there should be more security at baseball games.
One reason I think there should be more security at baseball games is because people can get robbed. Have you seen someone get robbed at a baseball game? Well I know I have. People get robbed almost every baseball game. If there were more security there would be less robbing at baseball games because people would be afraid if they rob. Some guy’s wallet got robbed, but if the police were there they could’ve stopped him from stealing the wallet. That’s my first reason why I think there should be more security at baseball games.
My second reason I think there should be more security at baseball games is because people distract. Have you ever been distracted? Well I know I have. People distract all the time, if a person jumped on the field and distracted it would ruin the game and there would be no security to stop him. Wouldn’t you hate wasting your money on a ruined baseball game? That’s my second reason why I think there should be more security at baseball games.
My third reason I think there should be more security at baseball games is because people get beat up for cheering for the visiting team, a guy got beat up by giants fans because he was cheering for the visiting team. He was in the hospital for two years. But, that might have not happened if there was security. That’s my third reason why I think there should be more security at baseball games.
That’s why I think there should be more security at baseball games. People get beat, people get robbed, and people distract. These effects the baseball fans by making them get robbed, and beat up.
I was at a picnic. There were tables and people everywhere. I gripped my raffle ticket hoping it won’t fall out of my hand. I was sweating so much I felt like it was raining. I sat on the bright green cozy grass waiting for the raffle to start. The first place prize is an I-Pad 2, which was the thing I wanted the most. Second place prize were these big speakers. Those were the poopiest things ever. Third place prize was an ancient iPod. Fourth place prize was a microphone. I had one ticket which was five bucks. When the raffle started I was shaking nervously looking at the people around me. All of them had at least five tickets, I only had one.
“There no way I’m going to win that I-pad,” I said.
They started with fourth prize I didn’t make it but I didn’t want it. Then they announced third prize. They called “72845,” I lost again but I didn’t care. Then second I didn’t get that either. Then they said first prize. They said the first number, I got it right, and they said the rest of the numbers except the last. I got all of them right! Now the last number was coming… The number was my number. I was shocked for a moment. I had never won a rafel before. Then I screamed, “I win!!!” And then I walked over to the table where you get your prize.
Everybody was looking at me and whispering, “He’s just a little kid! he can’t win.”
I said, “Well I just did.”
I was walking through the woods when I saw a horrifying mansion. The lights were flickering the house was moldy. I step onto the stairs, every step I took it made a crackling noise, I walk into the mansion, the place was wrecked, I could hear footsteps, I walk into the kitchen. The floor had a print of a handmade of blood. I was horrified. The footsteps get louder and louder! Then they stop. I slowly turn around and… I see a little girl. Pale white skin, blood was all over her body, she had ripped clothes. She said you will die soon; I was petrified, thunder struck. She disappeared and then….. HELP!!!!!!!!!!
It was a sunny day in class in school I was in class. Doing my work, it was hard I couldn’t think so I asked the teacher if I could get a snack she said NO. Once I finished we got to draw while she checked the work and she screamed look at this! His handwriting is so bad! She laughed like she was evil. She had pimples all over her face and she has a boy haircut. Then everybody started to laugh. Then I found out she was talking about me! The bell rang. I sprinted outside and jogged into the jet and told the pilot to take me far away. He took super far I leaped out of the window with my parachute. When I landed I said I’m never taking this class again. [censored]
