Trip Around The World

Trip Around The World (1)

All my life I have been planing this trip all around the world and by all around the world I mean 3 detentions. One of the destinations is somewhere that i can help others to make the world a better place. I’m going to tell you my trip around the world!

The first place that I would like to visit is Botswana Africa. I am going to 2834371849Botswana because they suffer from malaria and deadly diseases every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria. When I go to Botswana, Africa I will hand out bed nets to secure them from misquotes. Clothing that I will need to bring is swim suit, shorts, t-shirt, warm Clothes, sunglasses, bug spray. The currency that i will need for Botswana is Botswana Pula. An interesting fact about Botswana is the number of elephants in Botswana was given as 133,829, with Tanzania in second place on 108,816 elephants. Risks that i need to watch out for in Botswana are malaria & mosquitoes. When I go here a phrase I will use a lot is Vatsey which means “what’s up”!

15695408576After my trip in saving the children in Botswana I will then travel to Brisbane, Australia. Some things that i will do in Brisbane Australia are Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary & The Brisbane River which I can rent a boat for it. Clothing that I need to bring when I go on this trip is swim suit, shorts, T-shirt, and warm Clothes if I don’t wear warm clothes I will be really hot and will need to buy more water. The money or currency that is used in Australia is  the Australian Dollar which I need to trade an american dollar for an Australian Dollar .  Australia is the 6th largest country in the world, occupying an entire continent of some 7.6 million square kilometres. A phrase that I might use a lot is Aussie.

340215186After traveling to the beautiful Brisbane Australia I will then travel to the also beautiful Canada. Some things that I will do in Canada will be Niagara Falls & visit some towns. Clothing that I will need to bring is swim suit, shorts, T-shirt, warm clothes, sunglasses, bug spray & sweatshirt. Currency that I will use in Canada is a Loonie so I will need to switch currency when I go there. An interesting fact about Canada is Canada basically got its name by mistake. When Jaques Cartier, a French explorer, came to the new world, he met with local Natives who invited them to their ‘kanata’ (the word for ‘village’. The party mistakenly thought the name of the country was “Kanata” or Canada. A phrase that I will use in Canada is “Eh” which is asking if they agree at the end of a sentence. And that is my trip all around the world!

The Game Of Soccer

Boy playing soccer - Public Domain PictureWhat is soccer? Soccer is a game played by two teams of eleven players with a round ball that may not be touched with the hands or arms during play except by the goalkeepers. The object of the game is to score goals by kicking or heading the ball into the opponents’ goal. There is a World Cup that is played every four years teams from all over the world compete. There is also a English Premier League that is played all year long my favorite team is Chelsea F.C. The reason that I like soccer is because it is played all over the world!

There are 11 players on the field and there are four positions. The goalkeeper is simply known as the guy with gloves who keeps the opponents from scoring. A defender’s task is to keep the ball away from the keeper, prevent opposing attackers from passing or receiving, and block shots. Midfielders link the offense and the defense: they bring the ball up to the forwards in attack and prevent the ball from reaching the defenders when not in possession. Forwards are the most celebrated players in the team because they are often the ones who score goals.

I play soccer for the Heat United Soccer Club with 13 other players. When I play I go to right defense with 3 other people on defense. Defense is one of the most important jobs because the protect to keeper! When the forwards come running down the field I get into a defensive stance to break them down. When the forward gets a bad touch on the ball I put my foot out to stop the ball when I interrupt the ball i pass it on the the midfielder. If you were to play soccer what position would you play? why?



Malaria Blog Post

Malaria is a very tragic and terrible disease especially in Africa. My class had a very awesome chance to Skype with a school teacher in Botswana (country in Africa) that is trying to stop this terrible disease. He told us that a child in Africa dies every 30 seconds by the time you are done reading this a child has died. The reason that I want to help this cause when we were on that Skype call the teacher told us that he wants to whole world to be as one and come together to fight this and I agreed with him!

Misquotes are the ones that cause this disease they carry the disease in there body and when they bite you that transfer the disease to you. The misquotes only bite at night time and the only ones that carry malaria are the girl misquotes.  To prevent this kind of disease from spreading people in Africa have came up with ways to stop it. One way they plan to stop this disease is to hang bed nets over them when they sleep. People in Africa also use bug replant sprays to not get bit.

During the Skype call with Tommie (teacher from Botswana) he was telling us way that we can help stop this disease. Tommie plans on stopping this on 2017 but he needs our help. Some ways that you can help is just to donate $10.00 that is enough for 1 bed net and that can save one whole family. Another way you can help is to raise awareness for this cause to get more and more people to help. We can make t-shirts and bracelets or maybe run a 5k and to enter you need to pay $10.00. And so that is what you can do to help this cause. Come as one and beat Malaria!

Should School Start Later In The Day?

I think that school should start later in the day let me tell you why I think this. Some of the reason are that teens need 8.5-9 hours of sleep each night they sleep. Most teens that go to school have less than 7 hours of sleep and that is not healthy for there body and long term health. And 43% of schools start before 8:00 am and that makes the teens not able to get the sleep that they need. Also because the teens are not getting the sleep that they need 33% of students fall asleep in class. What time do you think that school should start at? I think school should start at 8:30 – 9:00.
