About my topic

My topic is about Bullying .This issue interests me because it 's about kids , bullying other kids . Even adults Bullying each other , & kids . Bullying is a big social issue right now . In Middle School & High School , Bullying is a big problem . I want people to learn that Bullying is a big problem right now and has been for a while . Because it hurts people's feelings . And that person getting Bullied might have other problems at home , and they suffer enough . And people just cause more pain for one in there lives . This issue needs to be addressed because , Bullying is bad it can make one commit suicide . Bullying people is bad . People Bully because they get Bullied or have been , and they want others to suffer because they suffer .

Civics : National Politics

I believe that their are much things wrong with this video " Cain 2011 " . The guy that's talking is not even the one that's running for president . And he is smoking and right now smoking is very bad . Another thing that I find " Unbelievable " is that at the end of the video they show the actual guy that's running for president , And his smile is super creepy ! It looks like he's going to get ready to do something dangerous .

Emperor Penguins - Antarctica

1. What challenges do the Penguins have to overcome ? Avoiding their predators . Starvation , & Mating .

2. How does their habitat challenge their livelihood each day ? Everyday the ice starts to melt , more & more , so that means they have to find another cold spot . What water freezes they have to walk further to find food .

3. What types of adaptations do Penguins need in order to survive brutal writers & Predators ? Warmth , food & water. They have to avoid the predator . But most likely I don't think they can be avoided .

4. Why is there a period of time in which there is practically no sunlight ? How does it affect the climate ? Because it's mostly cold in Antarctica . Antarctica is not a sunlight state . Penguins are supposed to be in the cold .

* Why is it important that the ground be frozen solid during the months of breeding ? Wouldn't be able to keep babies warm . Wouldn't be able to get food for the babies .

* How could climate change impact the mating ritual of the Emperor Penguin ? It could affect it , because the penguin needs to be in the cold . When the ice starts to melt , they move to a different spot . And when they get cold , they huddle for warmth .

Game Review

1. What did you learn from your choice of games & genres to review ?
Sports & racing : Racing .

I learned some math in the games I played . I played a game where you race , and while racing you have to hit the cars that are factors of a number . The game gives you a number and you have to find the factors of that number .

2.Name any game genres features that stood out to you either because the way they were interesting or because they could be improved ?

Action , Adventure , & Puzzles & Mazes . These stood out to me because of the way they looked . I liked these game genres . They were really fun & challenging .

Write down any questions you have about a game or genre choose .

Update the Blog .

1.What did you learn from your choice of games and genres to review ? I learned that my choice of games has skill , like the games are good . In the games it is clear what you have to do as a player , & they do work well . The games are good , & they do clearly illustrate the issue & learning concept .

2.Name any game features that stood out to you , either because they were interesting or because they could be improved . A game that could be improved is " B Cubed " . It can give like hints of what you have to do like it can have a button that says " hints " & when you click it , it can give you a hint of what to do . But you can only get a certain amount of hints . A game that I found interesting was " Crazy Taxi M2 " , Because well it's a racing game , you have to jump over the cars that are factors of a certain number . If you hit the wrong number you can't jump over the car , & you loose .

2 Single Story 2011

1.What does it mean to have a 'single story' about a place or community? To Have A Bad Or Sometimes Good Thing To Say Like About Something Or Someone . Like For Example East Side They Say Has Alot Of White People , But Other Say ' What Do They Know About The East Side ' .

2.Describe a single story you have heard told about your community. What is missing from that story? How could people learn more about that community?
I've Heard That People Say Their Is Alot Of White People In The East Side , So I'm Guessing Lots Of People Think That Theirs Alot Of White People Here . People Can Learn More About The Community By Exploring The Places They Think Are Bad .

3.Describe a single story you have heard about another community. How did you learn that story? How could you find out more about that community? Lots Of People Say And I've Heard It , They Say That The West Side Has Alot Of White People , And That The People That Live In The East Side Have Way More Money Than Other People . They Can Learn More About The Community By Actually Coming And Exploring Around And They Will See That Not Everything Is True .

How could a game let players experience many stories about a place or community? They Could Play The Game Then , Maybe They Will Go To Where They Are Hearing The Stories And Learn That All Things Are Not True .

1 Cyberbullying 2011

This is my first blog post of the 2011-2012 school year.

1. What Is A CyberBully? A cyberbully could be anyone,but it's a person who calls other people names and says mean things that hurts people's feelings,a person that bullies over the Internet.

2.What Are The Different Types Of CyberBullying? Gossip,Impersonate,Threatening.

3.What Should You Do If You Are Being CyberBullied? Always tell a trusted adult.

4.What Are Some Of The Reason That People CyberBully Others? Jealously,too feel powerful,or sometimes they do it because they want to feel power and also because they have been bullied.

We are learning about cyberbullying , and we watched this movie called '' CyberBully" . Its About This Girl named Taylor and her 2 Friends Named Samantha and Shaylynn . So Samantha and Shaylynn Had something called a Clicksters Page , its like Face book . Taylor wasn't to excited about having one , until the boy she liked Scott told her about it , so she went home and made an account so she could talk to him . So on her birthday her mother bought her a lab top and that's when she made the Clicksters page . He Sent her a friend request and she accepted it , the next day they started talking on Clicksters Chat , well its a page where lots of people can just talk to each other . So Taylor got online and started talking to people . And theres this girl named Lindsey and she bullies people . She Would Call Samantha And Taylor Names , and make fun of them , on the Internet and at school . Her Mom And dad are divorced because her dad cheated on her mom . Her Friends Samantha And Shaylynn helped her make the clicksters page . The Next Day When She Got Home She was eating , and her friend texted her and told her to look at her oage so she went and looked , Someone hacked her page and it was her brother but she didn't know until later , Every One Teased her about her status and they commented on it and said horrible things about her . Her mom Found out that it was her brother that changed her status . So he got grounded for 1 Month . But they ungrounded him so he could take care of Taylor . People were still teasing her , so her mom tried and tried and she did everything she could . But no one would help her . So Taylor tried to kill her self but before that she put a video on clicksters saying that she was going to kill herself .. Her friend Samantha saw the video , and she rushed to the house and on the way she called Taylor's mom . So The Ambulance Came and took Taylor to the hospital . She had to stay overnight . The Doctor said its best for Taylor to go to a class to say and listen to what happened to other people and to them selves . So she went and later she found out that this James guy sent her a request on Clicksters and it turns out he was a fake , and her Bestfriend is the one that created the page . So Samantha told Taylor that she made the James page . So Finally They Did Something about it , and they helped her . So they forgave each other . And Went to school again , and Everyone Stood up too Lindsey , The Bully . And Everything was Normal Again .

Winding Down

1.What is your team name?The GreenBeans(=!.

2.What is the name of your game?The Wonder Pets.

3.What is it about?Our game is about saving the rest of the animals from Global Warming.

4.What scenes have you completed?We have completed scenes One,Two,and Three.

5.What parts of your team page are completed?We have completed everything except our Final Playable Gameplay and our Research Resources.

6.How much more work do you need to complete?We just need to complete our Final Playable Gameplay,and the Research Resources.

7.What can you do from now until Friday to get everything completed?
What grade would you give yourself in Globaloria overall? We can work more,like since were a team we have to work like an actual team,like we all have different things to do,like each one of us have a level or something to do on the team page.Honestly I would give myself well,on a scale from 1-10 I would give myself a 5 maybe.

8.What are all of the things you have learned this year?I have learned how to draw in Flash,like well mostly animate things like make them move,and like make things.It's been really fun.I know how to do it,but it's kind of hard a little,because,well we really haven't done anything in Flash for a while so I think I might have forgot.

9.What are you proud of in Globaloria?I am proud of that well that we worked in Flash.Because well I don't really know how to work in Flash that good,But at the same time I do know how to draw and kind of animate the drawings.

10.How can you improve next year?I think I can improve by well maybe the teacher showing me how to work more in Flash,or if someone actually sat down with me and actually showed me how to do something.I learn better when you tell me alone,like by myself,but if you tell me out loud or from far away,I will not learn it,or in other words understand how to do it.So I would improve more if someone sat with me and actually showed me how to work in Flash,Well it doesn't have to be Flash,It can be anything.But the only way for me to understand if for someone to tell me and actually explain it.

Why do you think these games are so popular?I think that the games are so popular because people like action,especially gun games.

Do they make you feel like you are fighting evil doers, or are they just fun to play?The games are just fun to play but they are kind of realistic so I think it can make you feel like you are in a real game.

Which games do you enjoy in particular and why?I don't like any games,I'm really not a big fan of them.I'm just not into stuff like that,but I think they are pretty cool.

The site teaches you like,well you have to answer some questions if people have a right or not to do something.It teaches you like,it teaches like well it depends on what the question is asking you,then it tells you if you got it wrong or not.Two things I liked about the game is that it's like you're learning and at the same time it's like having fun.It's both at the same time.The game I played is called Immagration Nation.It's fun and you can learn alot from it.It's also cool because it has the Statue Of Liberty in the middle of the water.It's in water because you have to click on a boat and if you get it right it takes you to the place where they need to go,but if you get it wrong a little note comes up and says that it's wrong and you have to stay where you are.But it's a really cool site!

I can't believe there is a new Nintendo!O.M.G theres already like 3 or 4 out.I think alot of people will buy the New Nintendo.They say it's really AWESOME!We saw a video on the New DS.I think lots of people will buy this one because it's 3D and it takes 3D pictures.I wouldn't buy the New Nintendo because i'm not into games and stuff like that so yeah I wouldn't buy it.The very first Nintendo that came out my Mom and Dad bought one for me and my brother and my little sister I think it was 2 years ago,if not it was last year.But we don't use them anymore.My little sister is the only one that uses the DS.I think the 3D Nintendo well maybe parents will buy them for their kids,but I think that after a while the kids will get tired of it and move on to something different.Lots of kids play the XBOX and PSP more than they play the DS.I mean the Nintendo DSI bearely came out and lots of parents bought them for the kids and they don't use them anymore.They are mostly into the XBOX and PSP.But I think the New Nintendo is pretty AWESOME!It also has 2 Sensors which is really cool well I think.Well I hope lots of people buy it.

I think the kids at that school really cares about what happen in Japan.They are really trying to help them.If we could do that I would definitely help.Because if that was us I would want people helping us.The kids are doing this because they want to not because the have to.It's like the little girl said They want to help because maybe one day it might be them so they are trying to help as much as they can.The kids wore Red and White to represent Japan the kids that wore Red and White gave a dollar.I think it's really nice of them.It's like the little boy said to he wants them to have clothes to wear because the water washed up all the houses,people,and their clothes it washed up everything.The school already collected 500 dollars,they are trying to collect 2,000 dollars.But if they already have 500 dollars,I think they can get 2,000.I fell really bad for the people that died and for the people that lived in Japan now they don't have anywhere to live,sleep,they don't have clothes,no food.If I could,I would really help them.I would give them anything they need to survive.I think they suffered alot.I feel really bad for them.If there was something I could do to help I would do anything.

What does the word "teamwork" mean to you?
The word teamwork to me means that you and a group are or were working together and yall didn't fight over anything,and that yall worked together on everything.

How do you see these students trying to work together?
I see that they work together by dancing with each other and not arguing with each other about who they want to dance with.I think they are trying to be like adults,like they don't argue about anything they just dance.

How important was teamwork for these students?
It was very important,because they had to learn how to dance with each other without arguing about who they want to dance with or where they want to be,or what they want to dance to.

What do you think is the main message that these students should take away from this experience? I think the main message is that they have to learn how to dance with each other like they need to learn how to do what an adult tells them what to do.

How will you work together with your teammates in Globaloria?

I will work with them,by helping someone if they need help,or if I need help I think they will be nice enough to help me.But that's what I think.

The game that I was playing is The Multiplication Game.You have to use your multiplication facts to beat the computer,you have to move something called markers.You and the computer take turns moving one marker at a time.You have to get four in a row to beat the computer.The game is not hard,but it's not easy.It doesn't really explain what you have to do.It's kind of tricky,you really have to think about where to move.You can only move the marker once and it can not be where you or the computer moved already.It does not really give examples of how to play.But that's the game I played.

The game J.Lo Fur Bully On The Block is hard.You have to save the animals before J.Lo comes and tries to get the animals to use them as a fur coat.But J.Lo tries to catch you while your trying to save the animals if she catches you,you will not win.It's pretty fun though.

The game Super Chick Sisters McDonalds is kind of hard,but not really.All you have to do is save the chickens but if you don't save them McDonalds tries to take them to cook them.It's pretty fun,but kind of hard.I like the game though,it's really fun.

The game Super Chick Sisters KFC is kind of hard,it's harder than the McDonalds one.It was really fun though.I like the game.You have to get all the flies to win the game.It's pretty fun.

!The Wizard!

At the beginning of the movie, Jimmy is walking down the highway. Where is he going? He is going to California.

What is the problem that the little boy, Jimmy, has? His twin sister died.

Jimmy likes to stack and build things. How does this relate to video games? It relates in a way because like Jimmy does it so it can help him whenever he's playing the game.Like how the game has the walls made out of bricks,or balls,or gingerbread's it can be anything,but he does it so it can help him.

Playing video games seems to help Jimmy feel better. Why do you think this is? I think because it helps him forget a little about his twin sister Jennifer and maybe he feels free whenever he's playing video games.

What makes him such an awesome video game player? I think it's when he stacks things and I think that's what makes him a good player.

What kinds of games do you see being played? Have you ever played any games like this before? I've seen mostly Mario Bro's being played.I've never played any games that way.

How many different game systems do you see in the film? I see six different game systems.

What did you think about the Power Glove? I think the power glove is pretty cool.But i'm not really that into games so I really don't like it,

Crayon Physics

I think the game is awesome.You can put what you want to happen next,so you can do whatever you want to do.I think that is really cool.I think we should put something like that in our globaloria games.I think it will help people more,because it's easier to play.Well maybe it looks easy but it may be hard.I think it was entertaining.I would like to play the game.

I think it's a great idea that Google decided to host a Science Fair.Maybe lots of people will enter the Science Fai. It will probably end up being difficult to decide the winner.I can't really actually see myself entering the Science Fair,but if I was to enter then I would well I would have to think really hard about what I would do to enter.I would be too shy to enter.Especially because it's going to be students from all over the world.I would have to think about my ideas for this type of project.I would focus on Life Science.I know lots of people that would enter the Science Fair,and probably would win.
