Where Am I In My Centripetal Force Experiment

centripetal-force-jello-marble elenaHas you guys know I am in the science. I have finished my whole experiment, but I didn’t do my poster. I had a bit of problems with my experiment. My first problem was putting the marble in the Jell-O. I had trouble putting the marble in the middle because it went to deep or it didn’t go deep enough. I had to pull the marble out serval times before I got it right.  Making the centripetal force tester was a bit hard.  I broke one plastic cup, because I was using scissors, so it broke the cup. The second time I let my mom make a hole in the cup because I wasn’t able. Testing the centripetal force was so fun. I spine the cup with the Jell-O and the marble went in the bottom because the centripetal force was keeping it from falling out. I am really happy for picking this project because I never knew what centripetal force was until now and doing the experiment is really fun.

Swim To The End Of The Ocean

The first picture is a baby dolphin. I chose this picture because the dolphin was so cute and the picture was well taken. This photo was taken by:  Mark Interrante.

I chose the second photo because it is 2 babies dolphin with there mom swimming. I found that it would go really well in this post because their parent is with them. The person that took this photo is: Shirehorse.

The third  photo is a painting of a dolphin. I find this painting very original because of how the Dolphins are. One of the Dolphins are close and one is jumping in the air. I love this painting because of the colors. The colors are light and dark. The person who took this photo is Mike Quinn.

The next picture is a statue of dolphins. I really like how the dolphins are placed and in the middle there are water running. The tallest dolphin looks like if its going to jump in the air. The person who made this statue or took a picture of it is Nevit Dilmen.

Oma’s Quilt

omas_quilt elenaHave you ever seen a video where a quilt comes to life, or you have seen one and want to see a better video. If yes then watch ” Oma’s Quilt” at

https://www.nfb.ca/film/omas_quilt

You might remember the website because I talked about “Nightmare At School”. I found “Oma’s Quilt” at the same website. This video makes your day. Oma is a grandmother who is going to a retirement home. She doesn’t like it over there. Emily diecids to make a quilt for her grandmother with her mom. The quilt is made out of all her grandmother’s memories. Oma is finally happy where she is because of the quilt.

The video was made in 2007 by  Izabela Bzymek.

The video wasn’t like the videos in the 1980’s it was more like the cartoons we have now. the colors are light and dark. At Maple Street the colors beautiful and light colors. When they get to the retirement home the colors are grey not to pretty, but the family is in colors.

The cartoon tells a lesson. The lesson is no matter where you are you are always home when you have the people you love by your side.

🏆Ready, Set, Run!!!!!🏆

Hi Bloggers,

Do you remember the time when I told you I was going to do a athleticism competition?  Well I just did it last Saturday.

It was awesome. There were about 16 people or more. We had to do high jump, sprint, 600 meter run, long jump, and throw weight. It was really hard because you had to do 5 sports in the whole competition.  I won 3 ribbons. I got 6 place in the 600 meter run, 8 place at long jump, and 8 place in throw weight. I the long jump was 1 meter and 69cm, that was my record. 1-8 you got ribbons, if you were under 8 you don’t get a ribbon. My sister Bonnie got 1 ribbon in the 600 meter run. She won 7 place in the 600 meter  race.

My parents are really happy for me. My dad was there every sport I did. My mom didn’t stay that long because she had to prepare the party.

For me going on the winner stage of 8 places is because you never stopped and you gave 100 percent in every sport. For my dad I didn’t have to win a ribbon to be a winner I had to never give up and give even when it hurts, like my dad always says “no pain no game”. My dad is happy when I give my 100 percent. When I was called to get my 3 ribbons I was so happy that I couldn’t even speak. Remember to be a winner never give up!!

Nightmare At School!!!

elena nightmareI watched a video that was called “Nightmare at school”. In the video the boy had a lot of fears. These fears are fears that can happen in high school.

One of his fears was being laughed at by other people. I know that because in the video the boy was being laughed at by other kids because he was small.

His other fear was being late for class. I know that because the bell rang and he was trying to get to class, but he wasn’t able to get to class, because  things were blocking his way.

His last fear was being naked in front of his class.  . I know that because in the video he was naked in front of his class and there were people laughing, he looked really embarrassed.

A time that I saw surrealism was when the bell rang. The stairs were up side down and people were walking on them. I really like it because it is very original and I never saw it before. That was not the only time that there were surrealism but it was the one that got stuck in my mind.

💎 I`m A Winner 💎

If I won 1 billion dollars, I would be so excited. My first 60 million will go to cure Alzheimer disease. Alzheimer is when someone only remembers the past and not the present. If something happen a long time a go they might remember that, but not what happen a week a go. That disease affects the brain.

5 million will go to a homeless shelter. 10 million will go to my parents, because I love them.  The rest of the money will go to me. I will probably spent it on gifts, horseback riding,  buy a horse, and go shopping.

If you had that money what would you do with it?

The Unstoppable Post

I am going to do a super duper long exciting post. It means that the post is going to last a very, very, very long time. The first thing I am going to talk about is a men planning to live the month of January. Isn’t that awesome, except the part where  lions are not vegetarian. This article was on Dogo.

 

Jim Jablon, who is 46 years old is living with lions for a month!!!!  Wow I am glad to call that man brave. I would have never had done that.

His idea is spending the whole entire month living with Lea and Ed the lions. He hopes that when people see him playing, eating, and sleeping with lions they will donate money so he could reach his goal to get $200,000 USD, so he could take care of all the animals he has at  The Wildlife Rehabilitation of Hernando. He also knows that their attitudes can change at anytime. That’s why he built an emergency bed at the top of a tree, so he can escape.

Mr. Linden`s Libary

“Hurry up Lucy!” yelled Rose.

Lucy, Emma, and Rose were going to their favorite place on earth, the library.

“Okay I`m coming!” shouted Lucy.

 

Lucy was an excited and nice little girl, but when it comes to going to the library she is a comet falling from the sky. Rose was kind, playful just like Lucy. Emma was shy, kind, and goody two shoes. When they got there they were so excited. They ran in the library, hoping to find the perfect book to read. Lucy came by a large green book.

“Wow it’s amazing” smiled Lucy. “Girls come see this book” screamed Lucy.

The Blank Signature By René Magritte

the-blank-signature-elena

the-banquet elenahttp://www.wikiart.org/en/rene-magritte/the-blank-signature-1965

http://www.renemagritte.org/the-banquet.jsp

The first reason why I chose The blank signature is because I love horses. Their colors are dark, sad, and mysterious colors, they make me feel weird on the inside. I don’t know what the picture means but it look sad.

The first time I saw the painting I thought it was normal, then I saw the space in the horse. It was very unusual painting. I think that because of the colors and the horse. The colors are darker than other paintings that I saw and the horse has a big hole in it. 

The background of the painting is a forest. There is a lady wearing purple and is riding on a horse. The horse is chestnut which means orange and light brown. We can’t see the horse’s tail. In the horse there is a blank space.

About the artist.

René Magritte was born in November 21 1898. Sadly he died on August 15 1967, at the age of 68.  He died because of pancreatic cancer in his own bed.

 At the age of 12, he took art classes.

 His first art work is called “Landscape” in 1920.  The painting is beautiful with all its colors. He used cubism. His last arts were in 1967, they are called “Les Graces Naturelles, La Géante, The blank page, Good Connections, The Art of Living, L’art de vivre” and much more.

 His style of painting is Surrealism.   Surrealism is a cultural movement that is greatly known for its visual art works and writings.

  The paints he made in 1918-1924 were influenced by futurism and by cubism of Metzinger.  Many of his early works were influenced by the style in which Pablo Picasso painted.

On March 12 1912, his mother committed suicide, by drowing her slef in a river called River Sambre.  This was not the first time she tried.

In 1916-1918, he study at Académie Royale de Beaux-Arts in Brussels.  He studied under Constant Montald.

1936 his work was known in the United States. Wow that is amazing.

I look at more paintings and I found one that is really pretty by the same artist. The painting is called ” The Banquet”. This is one of the 100 pretty paintings that he painted.

I chose this painting because the colors are beautiful. The colors are sunset colors. You can see the sun with the trees. The colors are sad and happy. It makes me feel happy on the inside. I find this painting very original because of the colors.

The first time I saw this painting I had no words. It is so beautiful that I was speechless. I didn’t think that Magritte painted this picture.   

In the painting there is a reddish sun in front of the trees. It looks like a sunset.  The trees are grey. It is like if the person was on the porch.
