Two of the same

Today we are doing an activity called two of the same. Just looking at my two paragraphs I know I did much better in my second paragraph than I did in my first paragraph. Three months ago I wrote a Mask paragraph  I think I did a pretty good job because my introduction was good but everything else could use help. Now looking back I do not think I did not do that well.  It was very short and didn’t have a lot of transition words and my paragraph had a few if not a lot of grammatical errors.

 

Last month we needed to write another paragraph this time on Minecraft education edition paragraph if you read my paragraph you would see I wrote a lot more. I had fewer grammatical errors.  I think improved on my transition and conclusion sentence. paragraph I think I would be more independent instead of being more reliable on my friends.

Minecraft

    Minecraft

Are you tired of the way education is being taught? Then you should put Minecraft in your thought?

 

 First and foremost, there is so much gaming environment that is similar to how we are having work today.  For example, kids are spending so much time online doing g-d knows what. What they should spend it on is doing something educational, like Minecraft Education Edition. In addition, you can interact with different kids around the world, for instance, you can connect and play with different people around the world. For all, I know you can maybe meet your long-lost sibling. However, I think Minecraft should not replace traditional teaching, and here is why. Traditional teaching has been going on for centuries, even decades. It is not fair for Minecraft to just take over like that. Minecraft is just a video game that was made 11 years ago in 2009 when teaching was created long before I was born. If kids go online all day then it will rot your brain and you have no control over what kids are doing. On the other hand, Minecraft Marketplace will be updated to offer a new education. For instance, Minecraft will be adding new games like, logic puzzle games to teach students how to code and think like programmers and a tower game that teaches students about power generation from different things like wind and nuclear. Minecraft allows the ability to collaborate and build projects and learn with your partner.In conclusion, I think Minecraft offers a lot of education that is useful for children, but I do not really think Minecraft can handle teaching on their own. I think Minecraft should be taught as an extracurricular activity. As suppose to replacing traditional teaching.

Idioms

The idiom I chose was when life gives you lemons you make lemonade. Here is the picture that I made to describe it.

The literal term of this sentence is when lemons fall from the sky make a lemonade stand.

The figurative term of this sentence is, turn a bad situation into a good situation.

One time I turned lemons into lemonade is when my family and I went on a nature hike. My family and I were going to go to the dollar store to get birdseed because we really wanted to feed the birds. However, when my family and I got to the dollar store no one had brought a mask so we couldn’t go. if I remember correctly I believe I actually started crying because as I said before I really wanted to feed the birds, but I brushed it off and still went on the hike. When we got there I remembered I had some almonds in my backpack for example are lemons. I chopped them up in my hand and the birds proceeded to eat the almonds, say for example are lemonade.

Equality

People shouldn’t have to run away or even move out of the country as a result of people trying to hurt them just because they are different or have different opinions or different beliefs. You may think that this never happens but it happens more often than you think. Fellow classmates and Miss Bennett, today I will be talking to you about equality. 

 Equality is not just about me or you, It affects everyone. There are a lot of different types of equality like race, gene er, and even religion to this day a lot of them still happen. Equality is about ensuring that people get the same thing the same rights. But it’s not always like that. It’s important that people get the same rights so that when they grow up they learn to fight.if we didn’t have equality the whole world would be a mess.

Gender equality it’s important to remember that since birth, we have been conditioned to make similarities between men and women, masculinity, and femininity. Gender is the perceived or projected masculinity or femininity of a person.societies tend to have related gender in which everyone is categorized as male or female but this is not universal. Some societies include a third gender, referred to as transgender, which combined both as male and female.

Racial equality a lot of people think that since other people are different than them and have different skin colour they don’t have to treat them the same. but it’s not like that if you have different skin colour then you’re friend it doesn’t matter you could still be friends with them. For example a few years ago when I was on a cruise I met this girl at kids club.she had a different skin colour than me. but I didn’t care. I still continued to play and we had a lot of fun together.

In conclusion, you should treat everyone the same I hope after listening to my speech that you learned that you should treat everyone the same. I hope you remember that it’s ok to be friends with someone that has different coloured skin then you.thank you for listening to my speech.

 

Bees

                                                                         Bees 🐝 

                                                                   All about bees

Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants known for pollination. Bees are presently considered a clade, called anthophila. There are over 16,ooo known species of bees in seven recognized families. That’s crazy! Some species including honey bees, bumblebees and stingless bees live socially in colonies while some other types of bees including mason bees, carpenter bees, leafcutter bees and sweat bees are solitary. Bees are found on every single continent except Antarctica. The most common bees in the northern hemisphere are the sweat bees but it is small and usually mistaken for wasps or flies. Bees range in the size from little stingless bee species which are less than two millimeters to long Megachile Pluto bees, the longest species of bees is the leafcutter bee whose females can be a length of 39 millimeters can you believe it. Bees eat nectar and pollen did you know most pollen is used as food for their larvae. Predators of bees include birds, insect predators include beewolves and dragonflies. Bee pollination is very important both ecologically and commercially.the decrease in wild bees has increased the value of pollination by commercially managed hives of honey bees.

 

Beekeeping

Human beekeeping or apiculture has been practiced for years since at least the time of ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece.bees have appeared in mythology and folklore, through all phases of art and literature from ancient times to present day, although primarily focused in the northern hemisphere where beekeeping is far more common.

Pollination 

The earliest animal pollinated flowers were, cup shaped blooms pollinated by insects such as beetles, so the syndrome of insect pollination was well thought of before the first appearance of bees.the novelty is that bees are specialized as pollination agents, with behavioural and physical changes that specifically improve pollination, and are the most efficient pollinating insects.in a process of coevolution, flowers advanced floral awards including nectar and longer tubes, and bees advanced longer tongues to take out the nectar. Bees also advanced structures also known as scopal hairs and pollen baskets to get and carry pollen. The location and types are different among and between groups of bees. Most bees have scopal hairs on their hind legs or on the other side of their belly’s. Some species in the Apidae family have pollen baskets on their hind legs, while very few don’t have these but instead carry pollen in their crops.

How do bees make honey

How do bees make honey is a commonly asked question, how do bees make honey? Well that’s a great question bees collect a sugary juice called nectar from the flower bloom by sucking it out with their tongues. they keep it in what’s called their honey stomach, which is different from their food stomach. When bees have a full load of honey they fly back to their hive, and there you have it that’s how bees make honey.

.                  Why we should have more field trips

We should have more field trips because it can increase a student’s learning. A lot of people want more field trips. It would help us learn more about where we were going. Some people are visual learners so it would help them to see the place they were learning about.

You should let us have more field trips because it can help our learning. It would help our learning because we would have something to look forward to. We would behave better if we had more field trips because we would be comer in class. It could help us get more active so we wouldn’t be so hyper in class.

 

We would have more fun at school. We would work harder because we know if we do we would have a field trip. It would be fun to go to the places we learn about. We can have better school days because we would have a break on the bus.

 

It would help people understand more. For some people it’s easier to understand what they are learning about by looking at it. It would help people learn better to see what we are learning about. It could help the teachers get to know more about the parents and kids. The same goes for the parents. It would give us a chance to bond with each other.

 

We should have more field trips cause it can increase learning. We should have more field trips because we can learn better together. Some people like their parents at school. It would help us get to know each other. You could say it was a reward and if we behaved we would get to go.
