In my class at school we are doing discovery.It is a activity where you colonize in a new world. The point is to get lots of land and food and survive.You came from ether France or England and you have a reason to go.
You are in a group of 5 people and we all have a persona and a job. There is 5 jobs, Governor, Auditor, Recorder, Trader, and Mapper. When you start you will pick a group and your persona. After you will choose your job. Your persona is the character you will pretend to be. The Governor makes most of the decision. When you start sailing the governor will draw the first card. It will tell you what happened. All the other people will go drawing cards in this order. Governor, Auditor, Recorder, Trader and Mapper. When you get to land you will get a sheet where you will plan which adults will farm hunt and fish. You will still draw cards, but this time everyone has their own card to draw. Governor draws the weather card. The Auditor draws the farming card. The Recorder draws the hunting card. The Trader draws the Fishing card, and the Mapper draws the general welfare. These card will tell you what happened on fishing, farming, and hunting. Later on on round six your group trader will start trading. Your governor will choose what you will trade. At the beginning of trading you can only trade for land with the Native Americans, and when you get to round ten you can trade with other colonies. Also at round ten you can attack the Native American or other colonies. I personally think it’s a great learning experience.
Here is One of my diary entries of my personas diary
This Wednesday we leave for the bright ocean. I had Mother help me pack the pastries. I have convinced Sister Bell and Cosine Brook to come with me to the new world.I am worried that something bad will happen.I am still so excited. I love the sound of crashing waves. I am glad I can get away from the craziness of royalty. Always “Do this,” or “Be that”. Always Proper, Proper, PROPER! It can be a blessing and a curse. I just love to sneak away and do some sword fighting practice and play in the water and mud. wish me luck.

Donald Trump for President?
Donald Trump should definitely not be president, and I don't like how he treats women and girls. He calls them ugly, fat and calls them not good names! He thinks he has a lot of power, but he dose not and said to get the
hell out of America to Mexicans. Also he wants to build a wall around the united states. TRUMP SHOULD NOT BE PRESIDENT!!!!

Halloween in Places I've beenHalloween may be an American tradition, but its roots go way back. All the best superstitions of the Roman, Celtic, Catholic and European folk traditions, as well as good old Americans, have turned into the modern-day celebration of Halloween. Second only to Christmas in spending, this superstition-rich amalgam of a holiday has become a celebration of our need to embrace our desires. See how countries around the world put their own spooks on Halloween, as well as honor spirits from beyond the grave.
The French are not typically fain to adopt any celebration, but in recent years, with the help of Coca-Cola, and McDonald’s , Halloween is taking root in France. And, of course, the French love to dress up and have a party. People are out there if anything goes wrong but you can be sure that when Yves St. Laurent puts a Halloween costume on the fashion runway, the French take notice. The town of Limoges, goes all out each year with a parade of ghosts and ghouls, and Paris celebrates Halloween really well.
In Germany, Halloween is celebrated as All Saints Day. In southern Germany, it’s celebrated from October 30 to November 8. Typically, in this and many other Catholic parts of the world, the All Saints Day is spent attending church, honoring the saints who have died, people visit and remembering dead family members, usually graveside. Additionally, Germans hide their knives, so the returning spirits presumably won’t get harmed by random knife´s during the day.
For Halloween I am going to be Nyan cat

Alexander the Great
The age of exploration Was when Europeans want to trade with Asia between 1450-1650. It was a huge improvement after Marco Polo's stories came out, but befor that there was Alexander the Great. He was famous for being a strong commander and for conquering some of Asia, Egypt and India.
Alexander the third A.K.A Alexander the Great was born in Macedonia, Greece in 356 B.C.E.When he was young he had a tutor. He was tutored by a greek philosopher. When Alexander became a teenager he tamed a dangerous horse to ride into battle. Also he joined his father’s (Philip the lll ) army and became commander.
Alexander's journeys were to conquer all the land he could so he can expand his empire to take over India and other Areas to finish what his father had started. He conquered and journeyed for his dead father and for his home Macedonia, Greece.
lv.End of Life
Alexander the Great died in 323 B.C.E. People think that it was because he had a disease, and just drank too much alcohol, but no one knows.

This is a picture of my book I am doing for a book project. It's about the roman myths. A monster called a Nirads came and attacked Olympus. All the gods went into battle causing a major black out and storm. Pegasus went down to earth on a mission and paelen a god went down to grab pegasuse's golden bridle, but when he did both of them were struck by lightning! Pegasus crash landed on Emily's roof very hurt and injured.
I recommend that all of you read this series and enjoy it because I definitely did. It has a very jaw dropping ending that will make the audience go wow. I seems as if it was photographed right there in the moment but no it was not. I love the way the author wrote this book it is just so stunning.
Here is a link to a site that gives a bit of information about the author Kate O' Hearn
