I'm going to tell you about a system a system for example is like a biodome a biodome is an animals enviorment. The animals in our system helps it from collapsing. Our world is a system all the animals bugs help our system wich is the world if we keep on interuptingthe animals enviorment it will cause pure chaosin our world then the world will collapse. If we did not have trees or one very important animal our world will surely collapse. That is my assignment.

In 1662 King Charles granted a charter to Connecticut giving the colonists the rights to make their own laws (Speare, 70). 1787, King James wanted British Parliament to make laws for the colonists. Assemblies elected by the colonists made laws set taxes and raised companies of troops. Called militia to defend the colonists (Carter, 8).



In 1765, British Parliament could make more laws for the colonists. The King needed to pay for the French and Indian War so he made laws to tax the colonists (Harcourt, 266).



The King started the sugar act in 1764 (Harcourt, 272). “This tariff angered the colonists. But what bothered them the most was that they’d had no part in making this tax law” (Harcourt, 272). The King and Parliament all had a say in passing laws. “Unlike other British citizens, the colonists could not elect lawmakers … but Parliament was quick to remind colonists they were British subjects” (Harcourt, 263).



The Stamp Act was another blow to the colonists’ democratic ideals. The colonists had been practicing self- government for years (Harcourt, 263).



The Stamp Act of 1765 was another attempt by Parliament to get the colonists to pay the war debt. “The new tax law angered people in the colonies (January, 6). The Stamp Act required colonists to pay for a stamp (to show they paid the tax) on all paper goods like newspapers.



Parliament added these new laws to show they could still make laws for the colonists (Harcourt, 277). The Stamp Act Congress met to get the act repealed. Patriot James Otis said the famous quote, “No Taxation without Representation!” (Harcourt, 274). These British laws were directly against the democratic ideals of self-government the colonists had been practicing for 100 years.



The colonists did not get to elect representatives into British Parliament. They did not have any say in the tax laws they were being forced to pay. The King made a third law that angered the colonists, the tax on tea, 1773. The colonists believed in democracy (Harcourt, 263). The colonists were not represented in British Parliament and believed the only way to ensure their rights was to fight for them.



The colonists were British citizens living in America. When their rights were being trampled by The Sugar Act, The Stamp Act, and The Tax on Tea, they first appealed to the King and Parliament. When that didn’t work they protested. Eventually, the rally cry of “No taxation without representation” would lead the colonists to fight for their freedom. The colonists wanted a true representative government.



In 1776, in The Revolutionary War, British colonists fight Britain for the right to become American citizens and have freedom.

I'm going to tell you about the book Witch of Blackbird Pond.The romance in this book makes me gag but I'm going to tell you about it anyway. Kit wich is the main character of the book.

Kit flirts with Nat

Kit tries to flirt with John

Judith likes William

Kit likes John's voice

Judith likes John.

Now I'm going to talk to you about The History of Weathersfeild CT where Kit goes after living in Barbados when her grandpa died so she had to live in Weathersfeild CT. Aniways everybody is very religious if your not they kick you out of town. Everybody there uses wooden plates and they also use candles to see at night. The next catigorie is politics.

The patriets are against the loyalists the patriets are the ones that fight for freedom and trying to stop slavery. The loyalists are way different from the patriets because the loyalists are loyal to the king and obey his every order. That was a review of the Witch of Blackbird pond.

Right now Iam sitting

doing my own work

I see one person

reading his book quietly

I see people talking when it is work time

in my classroom

I hear talking wispering and working

I smell the fresh air coming from outside

I can taste a bitter yet sweet taste

I can feel myself rushing to get my work done

Right I am at the fair

I see a parade of people

one person has a big drum

drumming it like crazy

I see people cheering

clapping at the fair

I hear loud booming and

shouting and playing music

I smella fresh day

I can taste cotton candy

dissapearing in my mouth

I can feel the wind blowing

in my face
