Hero Party

        At our hero party we all brought props, dressed up like our hero, and brought our hero's favorite food.  We wore our costumes and props while we presented. The Heros were: Mia Hamm, Jackie Chan, Albert Pujols, Magic Johnson, Joe Louis, Jonas Salk, and Clara Barton.
        My favorite part of the party was listening to the other hero presentations and learning about the different heros, and then eating their favorite foods.
    Another hero I  learned about was Clara Barton. She was the founder of the Red Cross and helped on the Civil War battlefield.







This is me dressed as Wilma Rudolph holding her favorite food, chocolate covered strawberries!!










This is the whole challenge group dressed as our heros.

Wilma Rudolph

   Wilma Rudolph
             I chose to research about Wilma Rudolph because, she is the perfect example of determination and caring. She also is a great runner. I hope someday I will achieve my goals like she did.

She is remembered in the history books as “The fastest Woman in History.” This came from winning three Olympic gold medals in Track and Field. I think her greatest accomplishment during the Olympics was winning the 100 meter dash when no one else even came close.
Her determination came from her fight through polio. She was diagnosed at age five and told she would never walk again. But she never gave up. She was also very caring. After she retired from running she went around the world helping children with disabilities, showing them that they too can become an athlete.
She is not only a track star but a helpful person. She went around the world helping children with disabilities, teaching them that they can succeed.  She showed kindness after races even if she didn’t win. She was never rude or mean when she lost her races. However, some of her opponents or even teammates were rude to her. One time they hid her hair curlers and she showed up with a hood on at the award ceremony because of how bad her hair looked. They did this because they were jealous of her.
When you watched Wilma run you couldn’t tell she had faced many obstacles in her life. At the age of 5 she was diagnosed with polio and told she would never walk again. When she would lose races (or win) she was treated rudely because she was African American. But these things never affected the way she was or the way she ran.
If you ever win three Olympic gold medals, or any gold medals you would be extremely happy and proud. Wilma thought, “ The reward wouldn’t have been so great without her struggles.” This means, without her struggles through her life the rewards wouldn’t have been so important to her.
If Wilma Rudolph was still alive she would be going around the world again helping children with disabilities and teaching them how to face their problems. Wilma is remembered as a hero because she never gave up on even the hardest obstacles in 
her life.

I wish.....

I Wish I Could Jump 1,00O Feet.......
I wish I could jump at least 1,000 feet. Then I could jump up the stairs in one jump.  I could jump up a tree and hide when my sister was trying to take something. I could jump and reach all the apples high up on the tree. When I jumped off the diving board in the pool it would feel like I am flying. I could jump on the trampoline and would go higher than anyone else. I could quickly jump into bed whether it was in a tree or on my bed. Lastly I would be able to reach the goodies on top of the fridge that were waiting for tomorrow. I wish I could jump 1,000 feet..................

What are The Symbols of France?

               What are the symbols of France?
         I chose this topic because my cousins took a trip to France and told me lots about France and the Eiffel Tower and got me interested.  The question I wanted to find was what are the “Symbols of France”. I found out by looking on the Internet, library books, printing  pictures, and taking notes on the Eiffel Tower, celebrations, food, and parts of their culture. The most important thing I learned about was the Eiffel Tower,  it is the main symbol of France.  My favorite thing that I learned about were the types of celebrations and the food the French  liked to eat.  I thought the Christmas cake and the baguettes looked delicious! (We even had some of the bread for our party!) In the future I will remember the facts and see if my cousins know as much as me.
