    At first glance, it might seem that bringing technology in schools is a bad idea because kids will only be playing games, texting, and taking pictures.Nevertheless, the games could be educational, the texting could be for emergencies, and kids could be taking pictures of the board, notes, or their planner. Plus kids could be researching online.
    All kids need to be able to use technology in school because it will improve there learning skills.Using devices in school will let kids download school related activities and it will save schools money and time. Everyone will benefit extremely by bring in devices.
    Roman & Greek Gods
    Have you ever heard of the Roman and Greek gods? They are very powerful and they represent different things. For example Zeus is the Greek god of the skies and he is the king of the gods. On the other hand his Roman version is named Jupiter. There are many differences between Roman gods and Greek gods; however there are many similarities.
    {https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/ZhIaS94F6SE6dWKUu_fTKW3s3yAgPrtsB9pAU0y8X_wXzli7ARxdr8MkacQBSNA-r2ZD-K9tipqD21CcfM4mAa9JpEgPybDMIPkuFDbine_368c5j_zKcHfPEIXABcMLpmUY-LdCx2E} {https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/SISOrazjl7lPYW0q3cKwcwHWM8lxNNSlMnMqlWioXd06WopgxqsZeoeklnGo-JH-UstdsEL6E15QH5fdD0AXpnDtw0R8qWRAi3WO_1C1_lPvsvBU_hc9K-tgAGf4X1h-sA2StOJ3ZJs}
    There are many things that Roman and Greek gods have in common. For example, both gods have the same powers and roles. Also, both Roman and Greek gods all had children with mortals, they were called Halfbloods (half mortal half gods). Furthermore, both versions of gods are both very old! I means like thousands of years old! Last of all Roman AND Greek gods answer mortal calls. When a certain symbol is drawn in the hall of a household when a family member is sick or hurt. The gods will answer the call and heal the mortal.
    Now there are many differences between the two types of god. One thing is that the roman gods are much more aggressive and push for war more than the Greek gods. Another thing is obviously there names (see pictures above). They are technically the same god but with different names. Speaking of names Greek gods are actually named after a place or where they came from. Also turns out Roman gods originated from Greece! More specifically Greek gods are 1000 years older than Roman gods. Last but not least Greek gods are more about the looks and fashion while Roman gods are about Being strong and wise.
    Although Roman gods are Greek gods, not everything about them is different. Some aspects of Roman gods will be alike to Greek aspects. Knowing about both Greek and Roman gods should make students be more interested in mythology.

    In conclusion, healthy snacks will help Kasham kids keep our heads off our desks, keep us concentrating, and help us look more like a 6th grade class, rather than a kindergarten class.
    If I were Auggie would not want to go to school because people would stare and would wonder what happened to my face. Honestly, I would be depressed, scared, and upset. Though the only reason is because of my face not because of what other people would be scared for. Like, who would be in my class? Is my class gonna be hard? However my fear questions would be, will I have any friends? Will I be bullied about my face? Will people insult my braid?
    Compare/Contrast Essay
    The music is swirling through me and the beat is going so fast but I have to keep watching.
    In my eyes I don't see much difference between two things but when it comes down to Irish dancing and hip hop i can pick out EVERYTHING. Hip hop and Irish dancing are so different however they have SO MANY things that are alike.
    Irish dancing and hip hop have many similarities.
    For example both of them have very fast dance steps and are moving all the time. Also, they both take years of practicing to get to the better levels. Lastly, you have to want to dance and love to dance to get better. I know there are MANY similarities but there are also so MANY differences too.
    Irish dancing and hip hop also have many differences as well, for example irish set dancing have quadrilles, danced by 4 couples arranged in a square. However hip hop is "freestyle", meaning they make it up as they go along. Also, there are three grades for Irish dancers beginners grade a, b, and c with a being the worst and c being the best. By contrast, hip hop refers to "street dancing" so they just go along and there are no levels. The mechanics of Irish dance steps are much more structured than hip hop, hip hop is not prepared ahead of time.
    Music is still swirling through me of hip hop and Irish music. That's where you realize the similarities and differences. But in the end you realize that it's your expression of joy that drives your love to dancing.

    INFORMATIONAL ESSAY
    The US and South Korea are 2 different places. with them being across the world, there's a difference in their technology. However, there are similarities as well.
    American and south Korean technology have many similarities, For example, they are both working on drones for the military. Also, they are both modifying Xbox to do bigger and better things. Both places are enhancing robot technology. South Korea has miniature robots that can control themselves, and so does the U.S.

    There are also differences between them. If robots are created then they were created to do things. The U.S has a robot named Darwin-OP (Dynamic Anthropomorphic Robot With Intelligence- Open Platform) that can do human things like kicking a ball. But, South Korea has robots that can dance like humans and can do more things.
    Although tech in the us is different from tech in south korea, not everything is different. Some aspects of technology in both places may seem familiar.
    super story!!

    Blake Calvin was standing behind a group of scientist him and the rest of the team calls The Whitecoats. They were showing them a view of the earth from a distance for a mission. It was nothing he seen before, and he explored ancient jungles, ran from tigers, went through ninja training, and fought bad guys almost every day. But this one time, he didint know what to do.
    Behind him was Lauren Alexander, Eric George, Sarah Helmsworth, and above him was Jackson Cross.

    14Informational Essay on Adopting From China
    "By the year 2020, there will be 30 million more men than women of marriageable age in this giant empire, so large and so different (its current population is 1,336,410,000) that it often feels more like a separate planet than just another country. Nothing like this has ever happened to any civilization before.”- Peter Hichens. Adoption is good and bad in many different ways. The reasons for adoption in China are big issues for many people worldwide.
    One of the reasons that there are so many children up for adoption in China is because of a rule that you can only have one child. The One-Child Policy began in 1979 in order to better control the population growth. People are allowed to have more than one child, but are forced to pay higher taxes that most cannot afford. There are exceptions like if your first child is a girl or BOTH parents have no siblings or if your first child is born with disabilities.
    Parents in China typically want boys because they will help with financial support, retirement and care of their parents. Also, boys are educated and can find jobs more easily and typically get paid better than girls. Boys in rural areas will help tend to the farm work. When people in China have a daughter, once the daughter gets married, she leaves her home to live with her husband’s family. Then there is no one to help take care of her parents.
    After so many years of boys being favored and girls being given up, or worse, there is now a shortage of women in China. Rules in China keep changing and now the Chinese are adopting their own healthy children. Many families are no longer opposed to having a girl, but special needs children are now treated like girls were. Currently, there is a nine to ten year wait to adopt a healthy child from China. Many families internationally have decided to adopt a special needs child instead because of the long wait for a healthy child and many more special needs children are available.
    All the reasons for Chinese adoption have caused an imbalance and now the boys far outnumber the girls. The One-Child policy is a huge part of all Chinese children up for adoption. When most parents wanted boys, now many parents are starting to warm up to the idea of having a girl. What will the feature hold for girls and what will change for boys?

    ...
    Another natural resource is Limestone. Limestone is a rock made of at least 50% calcium carbonate, containing impurities like quartz, dolomite, clay, and Iron oxides. Limestone can be found in almost every color depending on what elements are combined with the calcium carbonate in the rock. Animals benefit from having Limestone in their diet so it is often added to their food. Another thing Limestone is good for is repairing and/or preventing roof damage.
    Another natural resource is dolomite. Although dolomite can be found in both sedimentary and metamorphic rock it is rarely seen in metamorphic rock. Dolomite is both a mineral and a rock. The mineral is the pure form(all dolomite),and Dolomite rock is made primarily from Dolomite but also with impurities(other rocks) like calcite,quartz, and feldspar. Dolomite has many colors including colorless, white,gray, peach, pink, orange,and rarely yellow, green,red, and black.
    The many Natural resources from Lithuania don't just end there, find out more on the interweb (yes, interweb, not net :). There are meny nore natural beauties to behold in Lithuania. Now I wonder what Natural resources are in Poland, right nextdoor?
    Dolomite is both a mineral and a rock. The mineral is the pure form, and Dolomite rock is composed mostly of Dolomite but also with impurities such as Calcite, Quartz, and Feldspar. - See more at: http://www.minerals.net/mineral/dolomite.aspx#sthash.si0sqiuP.dpufDolomite is both a mineral and a rock.

    welcome to my wiki! :)

    6 more days

    Baby Beach Ball
    One day there was a little tiny baby beach ball named Ballsy. All he wanted was to be a big beach ball because he never got played with because he was so tiny. One day somebody finally played with him and he got popped. Ballsy was devastated. He was thrown away because they thought he was useless. While he was in there,two mice found him and started fighting over him. In the process,they stretched Ballsy out so much that he was too big for them to carry home. So they left him. A couple days later, along came six raccoons, and they stretched him out even more.Ballsy was now too big for them to take him home! Then along came ten bears. They took him into the woods and fought over it so that they stretched him out even more! He was now too big for even the bears to take home! A boy named Bob's mom was hiking in the woods and found the beach ball where the bears had left it after taking it out of the trash can.She neatly folded Ballsy up and brought him home to Bob. He was delighted. He started fixing Ballsy up by putting duct tape on all of his holes. Then he put air into him. he had to deflate him and re-inflate him outside because he was too big to fit through the doorway. Once he got down to the pool he was pleased to find out that he was to biggest one there.All the other beach balls were jealous.

    "Fine."
    obviously,it took a ton of begging, but I did it! I convinced my parents to let me take care of them for the weekend.My friend said they were really hard to take care of, really hard to clean the cage and they would keep you up at night.I wasn't worried about them keeping me up at night because she is a really light sleeper. For cleaning the cage I tried it that one time and it was really easy. It turns out they aren't that hard to take care of. You just feed them once a day, let them have a little fun in the ball and clean the cage every week. After I took care of them for the weekend, it turned into a week,that week turned into a month,that month turned into 2 months, those months quickly turned into a year, and that's where I am today! And I and just about everyone that saw them last year are still loving my sweet,adorable,cute,and smart dwarf hamsters!
    WHAT HAPPENED TO MY HAMSTERS
    ( Don't read if you are squeamish. Seriously.)
    One morning I woke up and I wanted to check and see if my hamsters needed food( I don't remember the exact date because I was trying to suppress the memory but obviously it didn't work so I have to write it down) but anyway I saw Bubbles lying belly up on the ground next to their little house with what I naively thought was a red pepper on her chest. I went over to check it out because to my knowledge I hadn't remembered feeding them red pepper. It turned out Bubbles was dead and Lulu had been ripping open her chest. I ran out to tell my parents and my dad took care of the murder scene (Go Dad!!) While my mom tried to comfort me( It didn't help. You try seeing your favorite hamster out of the two get hurt, let alone dead.) Anyway, they wouldn't let me stay home and mourn Bubbles, so I went to school. When I got on the bus Randy was like are you okay ?cause of course Im crying a lot. and I was like no. and he was like why not and I'm like because Bubbles died and Lulu killed her! And I started crying more and I guess he felt uncomfortable because he was like oh. ok. And then we got to school and a whole hoard of kids surrounds me and it just makes me feel worse until Doc was like everyone go to their seats except for Elizabeth and like 3 other people. Then I went to the counseling office and the counselor started talking about her dog and she got tears in her eyes because it died like 10 years ago. I'm sorry if I sound rude in this but its a hard topic to talk about and people keep asking me about my hamsters.So, yeah. Oh, yeah Lulu got put to sleep at like the end of february.
