Personal Description in Spanish

This spanish assignment was done for the purpose to get us to describe by using our spanish adjectives. This past week we’ve been using adjectives to be able to describe people in spanish. The importance of knowing how to do this is that  many times we describe people and things in our own language but it’s also very important to be able to see how different it is and the culture which we might need to be able to do in english and spanish, also to be able to create a descriptive image of how a person looks and what they like to do.

Genius Hour

For my Genius Hour project, Trinity and I have chosen to do something with helping people. We have decided to have a Bible drive, that will be then put in a “goodie bag” for the Christians across the seas and the homeless around our county. In our goodie bags we will be putting some things for example, Bibles of course, blankets, goodies, maybe some inspirational words to help them not to give up. Trinity and I wanted to do this because we both have the same desire to help people. We haven’t done much to get this going but we have gotten our church and parents involved to help us.

Ecosystems at school

There’s many micro-habitats in our school yard and my group, Parker, Natalie, and I chose the one in the picture above. We were told to imagine we were an animal and find a habitat that looked good to us that we could adapt to. Our micro-habitat is in a creek bed, with many components, for example:

  • rocks
  • grass
  • bean plant
  • leaves
  • dirt
  • gumball plant
  • an egg on a rock
