Fort Caroline National Memorial

Fort Caroline National Memorial

On March 22 3rd, 4th, 5th went on a field trip to Fort Caroline. I learned that when the Timucua Indians met the French appearance the french only took 4 baths a year and that Timucua Indians took a bath almost every day. Also, I learned that when the Timucua Indians went hunting they would take animal skin put it on top of them to trick the deer and other animals. My favorite part was when we got to the replica of fort caroline and reading some facts about the Timucua Indians and taking some pictures. I thought that the field trip was fun, interesting and it was cool to see how the Timucua Indians how the Timucua Indians hunt. I think that other fourth graders should go to Fort Caroline because it teaches you about how the Timucua Indians lived, what food the Timucua’s Indians would eat and about their history.

Opinion Writing: Friends Are Like Siblings

Friends are Like Siblings

Do you have a best friend or sibling? I know I do and some of my friends I feel are like one of my siblings. Here’s why I think friends are like siblings. Some reasons friends are like siblings is because you fight and argue, they comfort you and they stand up for you.

Friends are like siblings because you fight and argue. For example, one time a friend was over and she liked one of my toys, she asked me if she could have it at first I said “yes” but then a couple minutes later I realized I wanted it back. Then we started to fight and argue. Another example was that I was at school and my friend and I had two different opinions. Then she told me her opinion was better than mine, we got into a big argument. Even though you argue and fight with your friend or siblings. You’ll always make up with them and say sorry to each other because friends will be friends and siblings will be siblings.

Another reason that friends are like siblings is that they comfort you. For example, one time we were at a program and I missed my mom a lot and I started to feel sad. So my friends came over to me and they tried to cheer me up and comfort me. Another example why friends are like siblings was when my friend came over to have a sleepover and she got nervous, so I tried to make her happy and less scared by comforting her. Another example was a time I was nervous at swim practice and I didn’t want my mom to drop me off but she had to leave, so my friend tried to comfort me and cheer me up so that I wouldn’t cry.

Although friends are like siblings because you fight and argue and they comfort you. But friends are like siblings especially because they stand up for you. For example one time a girl was being mean to one of my really good friends, so my friends and I told her to stop it and leave her alone and to pick on someone her own size. Another time a boy was saying mean things to a girl. Even though I didn’t know her I told the boy that what he was doing was not very nice. Then I asked the girl if she wanted to play with me and then the boy left her alone. Also one time a kid was not being nice to my friend about her size and that she was weird. So my friends and I told the kid to stop and he did.

In conclusion, friends are like siblings because you argue and fight, they comfort you also because they stand up for you. That is why I think friends are like are siblings.

Passover Project: Pharoh Command

In Jewish studies, we did a “Passover Project”. My project is called Pharoh’s Command It was about how Pharoh told his salves to kill all the newborn baby boys so when they grow up the couldn’t take over Pharoh. It took me four tries just to get it but in the end, I got it done. Next time I would do better it being more fluent with my words.

Golden Age of Piracy- Kyra

This week I learned that pirates  would make up stories to scare others. Pirates tried to avoid fighting because if the got a small  cut it could be way worse because they didn’t have any doctors on the ship. Also, they carried many flags to trick other ships. Pirate life is different from what I thought because I thought that all pirates liked fighting.  Instead some pirates tried to get out of fighting. People might think that pirates would only carry one flag but they did not. I used to think that pirates like fighting but I guess not. I think there are so many myths and legends about Pirates life  because people might of thought that they were fake. Also I think it because they talked about treasure and some people don’t believe in treasure. To me, pirates are almost like a fairytale.


I learned about pirate flags is that they liked to carry many flags. The reason pirates carried many flags is to trick people, also sometimes their flag would stand for who they are.  The flag that I created is a flag to trick people so if my ship pass by any other ship it would trick them into thinking that we were nice but secretly we weren’t.

Google Doodle

1.Press they green flag to get started.
2. Now click they space button to make they candle change many colors.

In library I made a google doodle. How I made the google doodle was I went to Scratch and then I clicked on the starter project then I watched some videos to give me ideas for what I should do. Once I got a idea for what I should do I got started. I first changed my background to a good chanuka theme, then I changed the color and letters to blue and a candle for the L. Then a friend helped me to make the candle change many different colors when you click the space button. I did well on the background  and changing the colors. I would not want to change anything if I got to do it again. That’s how I made my google doodle.
