Hi! Today, was our last day at school before our Thanksgiving break. Hooray!
Today in Science we finished working on our graphs with our partners that show the different amounts of gravity on Mars, Earth, and Jupiter. Jupiter has the most gravity of the three, and Mars has barely any gravity.
In French we had to write a paragraph in French comparing French breakfast traditions and American breakfast traditions. Two main points in mine were that waffles (une gaufre) in France are more commonly eaten for dessert instead of breakfast like here in the United States. Another point was that in France they call toast with jam/nutella/butter, tartines.
In Social Studies we first watched CNN 10 (CNN’s daily news for middle school/high schools students.) Then my two partners and I began to work on our google presentation on the Treaty of Ghent. The Treaty of Ghent was what ended the War of 1812 between England and America.
In Study Hall, I worked on one of my essays for English class. I reached the minimum of 3 pages.
In Reading we got our literary essays. I was one of the only kids in my grade to get all the conventions in my essay right. I ended up getting 9/10 points (94%.)
Today at recess one of my best friends and I worked on our skit for the talent show. We are the emcees that host the talent show.
In English class our teacher put on Charlie Brown Thanksgiving while we worked on typing our handwritten essays onto our laptops.
Today we had a fire drill which was really cold! It was only 20 degrees outside and I was wearing short sleeves. The firefighters drove by a couple times and then we headed back inside.
In Math we had a quiz reviewing the Pythagorean Theorem. I think I did pretty well on it. We had to use the theorem to find the area and perimeter of different shapes like arrows and equilateral triangles.
Today in P.E we had game day (my favourite part of the week!) One of my friends and I played basketball and then we took an anatomy quiz. After we finished the quiz we all played dodgeball which is my favourite game.
I hope you enjoyed my post! Have an amazing Thanksgiving for those who live in the US! 🙂
