In Social Studies class we talked about Europe. After we finished talking about Europe our teacher started to describe what we would be doing for this project. The purpose of doing this project was to learn about a specific country. I researched my country, which is Spain, and started to make a Google Doc.

 Article posted April 24, 2012 at 10:32 AM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 653 The purpose of this project was to learn about roller coasters and their history and physics. 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 653

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.

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.

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 744

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 546
