All about this week!!!

This week we have been working on power points about landforms. We are researching landforms like Death Valley, The Nile River Delta and the Andes Mountains. We are writing stuff like how it was formed and it effects us.  It is so so SO FUN!!! We had Dare today we learned about who to hang out with. We did a work sheet on having good friends. Who you hang out with determines how you will act. That is important. Spirit week is coming up soon! I cant wait! My favorite day is wacky tacky day! IT IS LOADS OF F-U-N!!! Tune in to the blog for some more info!

What we dared to learn in DARE

In DARE yesterday we watched a video titled INSIDE OUT which was a video where prisoners were interviewed about what prison was like. They all had dropped out of school and befriended with the wrong sort of people. Also, they advised everyone else to stay out of prison and stay in school. This proves that crime is not the right way to go.
