For the fifth grade signature event we researched founding fathers and mothers of America and Israel. I researched David Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel. I made an iMovie from my informative paper.

In art class we created a portrait of our assigned person using Monochromatic painting- Tints and shades. A tint is when you add white to a color. Shade is adding black. In Jewish Studies we learned about the history and founding of Israel.

Macat Arbeh ארבה

Posted by brookeg | Posted in 5th grade, Jewish Studies | Posted on 15-03-2018


In Jewish Studies we are learning about the ten plagues. This week’s plague is arbeh, arbeh is grasshoppers. Moshe started this plague, and he put up his hands and strong wing came from the east, and brought grasshoppers with it. The commentaries think that this plague lasted for a month. It affected Egypt a lot because there were millions of grasshoppers interfering with the Egyptians lives, and ate all of their crops. But this plague did not go to Eretz Goshen. Also God hardened Pharaoh heart.

 

In my picture it shows Pharaoh’s workers telling Pharaoh to let the Jews go. How do you think Pharaoh reacted to his people telling him what to do?

Macat Barad

In Jewish Studies we are learning about the ten plagues. This weeks plague is Barad which is hail. Moshe started this plague, and it spread all over Egypt except one part. That part was where the Jews lived, and it’s called ארץ גשן. Which is like all of the plagues it only happens to the Egyptians so Moshe and Aharon can prove that it is the power of God. In the hail there was fire but the hail didn’t melt. Hmm I wonder why because it’s the power of God because it didn’t melt. Rashi said that its נס בתוך נס which is two miracles or miracle inside a miracle. Pharaoh’s heart hardened and he did not let the Jews go.

Macat Scheen

In Jewish Studies we are learning about the ten plagues. This week we are learning about the sixth plague, and it’s called Scheen. In Macat Scheen God told Moshe to take ash and to throw in the air by Pharaoh. When that happened everyone got boils on their skin. Moshe started the plague. Maybe a month, it affected all of Egypt, unlike the first five plague where Pharaoh hardened his heart, God hardened his heart. Why do you think God hardened his heart?

Origami Adjectives

Posted by brookeg | Posted in 5th grade, Writing | Posted on 16-02-2018

In class we wrote down a noun on a piece of paper and we rotated to the right and everyone wrote down the best fitting adjective. But we couldn’t copy what other people wrote. After we finished our rotation we had to turn all of our adjectives and our noun, and make a poem out of it . We had to highlight the adjective so people knew what it was.

Macat Dam מכת דם

In Jewish studies we learned about the first of the ten plagues. The first one is blood. When you thought Moshe started all of the plagues you are wrong. Aharon started this one and I will tell you why. God chose Aharon to do it instead of Moshe. Rashi thinks that the Nile is not as special to Aharon. But Moshe didn’t want to hurt it. He didn’t want to hurt it because the Nile saved him when he was a baby by carrying him safely to Pharaoh’s daughter.

When the two brothers pulled off the plague Pharaoh wasn’t impressed, because his magicians could also do it. The first plague of blood lasted for one week, it was started by Aharon, the blood affected all of the Egyptians and their  water. When this happened Pharaoh’s heart hardened, and he didn’t let the Jews go. 

My Balloon Rocket

In Science Lab we were building a balloon rocket to test Newton’s laws of motion. On the first day we watched these videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGO_zDWmkvk&t=24s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnoNITE-CLc&t=36s . We did not have enough time to build that day so we brainstormed, designed, and made sure we had accurate ideas. The following week we started to build and tested out our rockets a lot succeeded and some failed but I never got to test my rocket because I wasn’t building fast enough. But when we went to go to Science the next week, my balloon popped in the baggie. So I had to start from scratch, but this time I got to test mine it worked so I ended up making two more, both successful.

 

The items that we used were balloons, straws, string, my breath, and tape. My design was I took a balloon, and blew it up and loosely tied it with string, then I taped two big straws and two small straws on to the balloon. I chose this design because it was different from what others did. Also like I said I didn’t test yet, so I was watching everyone else, so by watching I could tell what worked and what didn’t work.
