Today in class we read about the different issues that happened in the late 1800's. We read about how people took advantage of these issues and used them to make money by over exaggerating in newspapers. After reading about the events we came up with our own news stories' titles, like the ones they were making.

Today in class we went to the computer lab to work on our smithsonian quest badges. I'm currently finished with 2/3 of the quest. My quest involves learning about ancient/prehistoric water animals. It's very interesting learning about the different species and how they've evolved.

This past week when Mr.Boyle was gone we worked on our history projects. Mr.Wall was our sub. We were supposed to write something on a cowboy movie we didn't finish, but I don't think anyone did... well I hope no one did because I didn't. Today in class we read about imperialism and how involved the US got and how they basically butt in on everyone's content to make them "better." We clearly were just looking for attention. Why do something so random with places that were fine with their lives? Crazy.

The Human's Burden

Take up the human's burden
Something we carry the day we are born
Some with peace and love
Some with hatred un torn

The human deciding
 Is better then all
Choosing what's best for those under
Picking them up before they can fall

Take up the human's burden
An indescribable love for war
Fighting for those who don't want it
Reaching for love and adore

Not understanding the difference
Between content and control
Desiring admiration
Something to soothe their soul

Oregon Trail Game

I really am not good at embedding links/don't know how. But if I put this in my computer my game comes up.
