What’s going on in this picture? Look closely at the image above, or view it in a larger size, then tell us what you see by posting a comment. On Oct. 22, we will reveal more about the image and its origins at the bottom of this post.

 In this picture it looks to me like the two men could be in a factory. This building looks long, round, and dark. In the middle of the building it looks like there is a tube with maybe fire in the middle. Maybe the men are trying to burn something that is inside the tube? There are many possibilities to what people may think this photo is, I think that the picture is of two men in a factory trying to burn something with the fire that is in the middle of the building.

Blog action day.

BLOG ACTION DAY
HUMAN RIGHTS
CHALLENGE 5

  • If you have faced neglect, abuse or punishment, you have the right to rehabilitative care
Abuse and neglect happens everyday all over the world. If you know someone or you are getting abused you have the right to express what is going on! In the sentence above stating, if you are experiencing neglect, abuse, or punishment you have the right to rehabilitative care. This, I agree with 100%! You should not have go through something so tragic and expect to recover from it alone. Getting rehabilitative care (help) would help you find a way out, a way to overcome the abuse, neglect, and punishment.

There are many people out there facing this. You have the right, as a human to take a stand for someone you know, or even yourself, you have the right to rehabilitative care! No one should recover from abuse, neglect, or punishment alone. There are plenty of people out there willing to help you!

STUDENT BLOGGING CHALLENGE
 
 I am doing the second activity for the blogging challenge 2. This activity tells me to give 5 place in my local area (Plymouth IN) that I think visitors should see. One place is the town Museum; the museum is filled with history from Plymouth! You can see all the wildlife, past miss Americas and the runner ups (that are from the Plymouth area), important old buildings that used to be in Plymouth, but my favorite thing to see in the Museum is the train room! You can play and see all the old trains and pictures of trains from olden day Plymouth! The next place I think is interesting to see in Plymouth is all of our nature trails. You can go and walk on the nature trails and see some cool things! The third place I think the visitors of Plymouth would find interesting to see is just to walk uptown. There are cool stores and places to eat up town. Next, I think it would be cool for people visiting Plymouth to see public park! Our public park is big and it has cool things to do there. The last place I think visitors should see is Plymouth's skating rink! I have a lot of fun at the skating rink; it is a good place to go for kids and adults and you will still have fun! Plymouth is a very small town, but there are still a lot of cool, interesting things to look at and do in Plymouth! 


STUDENT BLOGGING CHALLENGE 
School Life.

How is a typical everyday lunch for me? Lunch is my favorite part of the day while I'm at school!  I get to get away from all the thinking and take a break from everything! I can see most of my friends that I don't have regular classes with and at lunch we can talk about things other than school! The school lunches to me are good, most of them! What time do I usually wake up in the morning? On school days the time I get up in the morning is around 6:00 a.m. That gives me around 1 hour and 20 minutes to get ready for the school day before my school bus comes! It takes me about 5 minutes to get fully awake because usually I am really tired in the morning!

Wonderopolis

What is the hottest planet?

I had always thought that the hottest planet would be Mercury and so that would be the hottest planet. Really, I learned that I was wrong and that the real hottest planet is Venus. Mercury can get up to 700 degrees, whereas Venus can get up to 900 degrees! I thought that this website was very well made and it was well put together and I could tell that the author spent a lot of time on the article!

Boys growing into adulthood.

10-3-13

Societies expectations for boys as they grow into adulthood are more strict than the expectations that society has for women. I believe this because the men, in my opinion have a lot more say in society than women do. Men should learn, as they grow to mature and make big, and right choices in society! From reading the book, Lord of the Flies, I have learned that the boys are more capable than girls at any age when it comes to hunting, and fending for themselves out in nature. Men, as they grow into adulthood, should learn to make good decisions and be the more mature, man in a family.
