Thank you all for doing the gratefulness homework It really helped me a lot. I hope it helped you become more grateful. Thanks for commenting on the blog to say what you are grateful for even though you didn’t have to :) I made this Wordle from the comments you made.
This a very interesting video. I think it shows us that we live in a crazy, cool world! Just think about how far we’ve come. Look at the ancient Roman civilization. It was cool and it had great architecture but it didn’t have all the technology that we have today. Do you think it’s a good thing that we have so much technology and such a built-up civilization? Or so you think that it is hindering humanity more than helping humanity? Please watch and enjoy!
In 6SS some words are banned (awesome, like.., dude etc). I don’t really think those words should be banned. I think that people should use the words they want as long as they are not rude or disrespectful. Every generation always says how bad the youth of today is. They always say that they should not do this and not do that. Here is a quote from 2400 years ago.
“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.” Socrates.
Socrates sounds like that grumpy old man in your neighbourhood.
What do you think? Do you think words should be banned or do you think the youth of today should be allowed to use their own words?
This is for Challenge #1 and #4. We went to Beijing China for our school break. It was lots of fun and it was also quite cold. Enjoy the video I made with help from my dad who taught me how to make it using Aperture software. These are photos me and my family took. Enjoy!
Here’s some photos and video from the pool party!
