I created this graph about “HOW BIG ARE FAMILIES IN OUR SCHOOL” Using data from kids in my class. My drawing was close to the real one although I had it starting at the top and working clockwise from two-eight. Our class data gave me a good estimation on the how many family members from people in the school.
I am on the street. I don’t know where I am going. I guess I’m just wondering the shops. A guy in a black suit is walking down next to me. It is very awkward. It feels like he is following me. He nudges me. That was weird, a stranger just nudged me. “Hey,” he whispered to me, “I dare you to walk over to that guy and trip him up!”
“Why would I do that?” I asked him.
“Because it will be funny!” He said and then shortly after said, “DO IT OR ELSE!”
I am in class sitting on my chair, looking at the clock. Still 30 minutes until lunch. I have pins and needles. They hurt as walking through flames. My teacher is on her computer, (probably playing games secretly like she regularly does) and my friend is whispering to me. “If you jump out of the window,” He whispers, “I will give you ice cream, lime flavor!” He tells me in a whisper.
“Why would I do that?” I chuckle thinking that he’s joking.
“Come on, an ice cream is a serious reward. And jumping out of the window is only a small crime!” He says. I am startled. He is dead serious.
“No!” I say. I don’t want to jump out the window.
A magic door! It has been a lifetime since I once saw one of those! I wonder where it leads to? I hope it leads to a lollies world were everything is made out of lollies. Wait?! The door is dark blue. Is that a good sign or a bad sign? If that then why? I knew my friend should have come along with me because it would either scary or hard to make a decision. Should I go in or should I not. It is an impossible decision. Okay, I made up my mind. I’m going to go in…
“I dare you to look over the edge of that cliff!” Said my best friend Bobby. It was dark from beyond that point. I took a few steps closer. ‘Easy does it’. I kept saying to myself. So, as I looked over the edge, I saw a nothing. It was pitch black. A shiver went down my spine. I was really scared. Then my best friend charged at me. He bumped me. I fell. He had betrayed me. He was my best friend forever but not anymore. My last thought was: What will happen to me?!
“I can not believe you did that!” Screamed a teacher to a student. She was running after him because ‘apparently’ he wrote on the board when he wasn’t supposed too. They chased around the whole school. She picked up a knife. Let me say that again. SHE PICKED UP A KNIFE AND SHE WAS RUNNING AT HIM AT FULL MOMENTUM! She stabbed a tree. It was her favorite one. She was shocked at her actions. She still was angry however, she couldn’t believe what she had done. She was startled. What could she do? Would she ever get it back?
This Behind The News video was about two families who did a natural disaster experiment. They found out that the kids did better than the adults because the learnt about it in school. In a fire it is not safe to lock yourself in a room unaware of other rooms. You have to prepare if you have time. Why did adults not know to not drive in floods? How old was the youngest kid? I now understand that it is hard to stay calm in natural disasters.
WATCH OUT!!!! Everyone yells. They are yelling this because of the huge bridge that is going to fall on top of us. It sprinkled to the ground. Well maybe that was not the right word. It did sprinkle but not in a calm and that sort of thing. Maybe crashing is a better word for it. I saw a daffodil sitting all by itself and I felt guilty to just leave it there. So I risked my life. Just when I got to it I realized it was not a flower. It was a very big chunk of abandoned rubbish. I hate that.
95% of kids would LOVE to have a phone. All kids SHOULD definitely be able to keep one. It is important for a lot of reasons like quickly contacting someone. I remember when I could not have a phone because I was too young to keep one. These following MAIN reasons will tell you why keeping a phone over the age of ten should be compulsory.
Why can’t we have responsibilities for things we do? We need it so we can practice for being an adult because you don’t see many walking around the streets with no phone. It is also good for privacy so kids don’t grow up relying on their parents for a lot of things. Kids also practice being careful with where they put it so they don’t lose it. Only few adults regret the trust that they had on their kids.
Do you not want your kids to have friends? Kids NEED them. It connects with their phones stay together. They can also plan things like catching up at the park so they can hang out. They can also inform each other about funny things and about what is happening in their house. Don’t lose your child’s friends.
Do you want your kids not to have independence? If they don’t have it then they will start panicking if you leave them. You also don’t have to help out with everything. KIDS NEED INDERPENDENCE!
A lot of adults have phones so why can’t kids. That is why I believe that all kids should be allowed to have a phone. Again that was only a few of many reasons. GET YOUR KID ONE!
This Behind the News video was about a very serious drought in Cape Town. The drought is so bad they are only allowed to use 50 liters of water a day.Cape town is in south Africa and it is not very rich. It is so bad people are avoiding washing their clothes. How did the drought get so bad? When is the drought going to end? I now understand how hard it is for people in cape town.
