Artifact Exhibit

My artifact is a photo album, that had questions that go with it.

I think the whole thing was pretty organized. And I also think that a lot of people like it.

I think the little kids didn’t think some of the exhibits were very interesting. I also think that people liked it just for the candy, which is not very good.

I could prepare better by having the actual photo album. I also think that I could have had pictures on my chrome books.

It made me learn more about my Jewish identity.It also made me learn about Israel.

Podcasting

My podcast that I chose was H.H Holmes and The Murder Castle Mysteries. The genre of my podcast is mystery, because it is about the untold stories of the Murder Castle. The focus of my podcast is the notorious H.H Holmes and his story of why he himself became the devil in the white city. H.H Holmes wants to make a lot of money, but he does not know how, so he steals ca dabbers to make money, then he got caught and was put in prison for identity fraud. I like this podcast because I like scary stuff like, Horror movies, haunted houses and stuff like that. I would recommend this podcast to someone who likes scary stuff like me. I would say the podcast earned a solid 4.5/5.

5/4 Blog: Pre-Sukkah reflection

    1. What Jewish laws are you aware of pertaining to how a Sukkah should be built (what can and cannot we do)?

I believe that a sukkah should be kosher meaning that it should not be built under a tree. Must be large enough to contain a man’s head, most of his body. The walls of the sukkah may be made of any material, but must be sturdy enough to withstand an ordinary wind.

 

    1. What do you want our Sukkah to include (that represents who you are)?

I want our sukkah to include nice decor. I also want it to include a table with chairs. It also needs to be 2 floors.

 

    1. What materials should we use for our Sukkah?

We should use wood. We should also use scach. And we should use paint.

 

    1. What skills do we need to know/work on in order to successfully build our Sukkah?

We need to have the skills of wood working. As well as the skills of safety. And Building skills.

 

    1. What should be our mission statement (our motto) for the Sukkah?

We should have all of the grades eat lunch in the sukkah so that is fun!

What I am reading now in non-fiction

Right now I am reading Left for Dead by Pete Nelson. I chose to read this book because it looked interesting to me and I wanted to learn about something that I didn’t know about before I read it.

 

The book is about a young boy who is gathering information about the USS Indianapolis for a project. He goes around finding soldiers who survived the tragedy, and learns about other peoples different perspectives of what happened.

 

The story sets place on the Indy and during the attack,  then cuts to a house in Alabama where Hunter Scott (The little boy) is being told the stories about the Indy. Then conflict begins when all of the soldiers are in the water and sharks start to surround them.

 

Theme topics that I see developing in my book are Death/Loss, Tragedy, Violence, and Sadness.

 

I think that this book is great so far and I can not wait to read the end, I think that it is the best war book, shark book, and non-fiction book that I have ever read.

 

If I were to recommend it I would recommend it to children and adults 12+. I would also recommend it to anyone who likes books about tragedies, war, and sharks.
