The three laws of motion are: 1.An object at rest will stay at rest unless it is acted on  by an unbalanced force. An object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and direction unless it is actedon by an unbalanced force. This law is often called the law of inertia. 2.Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object). 3.For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action. There were four jobs. The lawyer, the design engineer, the physicist, and the historian. I was the historian. I had to find out the history of rollercoasters. I also had to find out the fastest, longest, tallest, and the biggest. Ryan was the physicist. Natasha was the design engineer. Drew was the lawyer. The outcome of this project was to know the history, the laws, the physics, and the design of rollercoasters. The reason my first roller coaster failed is because it had to much speed and so it crashed. Here is a picture of the coaster that failed. We called our coaster "The Abominable Taco".   The reason my second roller coaster was a success was because it had the right amount of speed. Here is a picture of the coaster that was a success.      Coaster Creator Article posted April 24, 2012 at 10:32 AM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 645

We took part in a variety of physical endurance tests. The sixth grade students charted the results for each event and grade. Here are the results of the curl Up for grade 4. As you can see from the chart below, 14 or 16.5% of the students achieved Presidential Level, 13 or 2.53% of the students achieved National Level, and 6 or 5.5% of thesecond graders were at Participant Level.

He is well known and if someone had to name a pharaoh they probably would say King Tut. So let's get started. KT: Ask away. I am pleased to be here. It's very tight in my coffin. OB: How old were you when you became pharaoh and how long did you rule? KT: I started ruling at age 7.  The total years I ruled were only 12 years because I died at the young age of 19.  Even though I was pharaoh for a short time, I am more famous than other pharaoh's who ruled much longer. OB: How big was your family? KT: Including me, there were five of us.  My mom's name was Kiya and my dad was named Akhenaten. I also had two brothers who were my only friends because being a pharaoh I could not have any others. OB: Why are you so famous? KT: I am famous because of all the treasure that was discovered in my tomb. Once my tomb was robbed right after I died, but the stolen items were replaced.  My tomb was in excellent condition when it was found over 3000 years after I died! OB: When did you die? Why are people saying you were murdered? KT: I died in mid-January, 1343 B.C. I think I was murdered because someone smashed my head in and it hurt alot.  Since I was a pharoah, not alot of people got too close to  me except important people so I think I knew my murderer. OB: You said your tomb went undiscovered for over 3,000 years.  Who finally found it and how? KT: My tomb was found by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon in 1922. Lord Carnarvon was rich and so he bought the right to dig in the Valley of the Kings. They worked really hard looking for my tomb for five years.  They were getting really depressed and almost ready to give up when they finally found the stairs to led to my tomb's entrance. OB: Some people died after being in your tomb.  Did you put a curse on anyone who entered it? KT: No, I did not put a curse on people who entered my tomb.  The cause of their death has a scientific explanation.  Before my tomb was sealed, food was placed in it.  The bacteria in my tomb when it was sealed fed on the food and let a toxic gas in my tomb. When the workers entered my tomb, this got in their in their lungs and killed them. OB: Thank you for coming and answering these questions. I really appreciated it. I learned a lot about your life.

Amendment 10 says that any power not given to the federal government the law to the states and the people. The 11th amendment made a correction to the court system. For an amendment be part of the constitution it has to be approved by 3/4 of the states. The first ten amendments are called the bill of rights. Well those are three out of the 26 amendments I chose.

 Article posted May 18, 2011 at 12:42 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 743 There were three principles. They still apply today for over more than 200 years. The first one is the seperation of powers. That means that powers divided by three branches of government: the legislative branch that enacts the law, the executive branch that sees that the laws are carried out, the judicial branch that interprets the law. Next is a system of checks and balances.This means that each branch of the government has some authority over other branches. It limits the power. For example, congress passes the laws but the president has the power to veto or to reject the law. However if 2/3 of the legislatures still want the law even after its been vetoed they can vote to overide the president. The surpreme court can enveladate or cancel the law if it finds that the law contridicts or violates the principles of the constitution. A 3rd principle of the constitution is called shared powers. That means that the federal government shares power with the states. For example, only the federal government can declare war and print money while the states can establish their own schools and regulate local governments. But both the federal and the state government can impost taxes, regulate banks, and have their own courts. This makes our national government a federation. A confederation is a weak central government with very strong independant states. A federation is a strong central government that shares powers with the states. That's an overview of the constitution. Now let's look at the constitution step-by-step. Article posted May 18, 2011 at 12:42 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 743

The Virgina Plan was a document that outlined federal and state governments. The basic government outlines the Virgina Plan offered is used in America today. It was drafted by James Madison, and presented by Edmund Randolph to the Constitutional Convention on May 29,1787, the Virgina Plan proposed a strong central government. And that is something anyone should know especially a pearson studying the Virginia Plan. Article posted May 9, 2011 at 02:01 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 539

Article 3 outlines the druditial branch -the supreme court and the other federal courts. Article 4 talks about the relationship between the states and the federal government and between the states themselves. Article 5 explains how the constitution can be changed or amended. Article 6 makes it clear that the constitution is the supreme law of the land. That means that while the states pretain the power to make certain laws, they can not make laws that go against the constitution and national laws. Article 7 says that the constitution will go into effect when it is ratified by nine states. That happened on June 21, 1788 when New Hampshire voted it's approval. That's it!!!

A confederation was a very loose association of strong, independent parts. There was no leader. Thay could not work out anything without a central court system. The Articles of Confederation lacks the great principles of a political system. There was no Central court system. Article posted April 18, 2011 at 02:07 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 611

I learned alot about the plant and wildlife in the tundra. There are so many animals. I had to write about the wildlife and plants. There are barely any plants in this ecosystem. It is very cold there. There are two kinds of tundra's: the alpine and the arctic. Some species live in both the alpine and arctic tundra.

### http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5166/5319821739_f0bd43e973_m.jpg" />I learned that smoking is unsafe. Your lungs turn black and it is hard for you to breath. My poster shows what happens when you smoke and when you don't smoke. It advises you to not start. If you use a cigarette you can start coughing and your hurting your body. If you use chewing tobacco, which they make taste good for kids or preteens, it could have something your allergic to and you could die. So please don't smoke!
