Another assignment Olivia and I decided to do was to practice self portraits. I did 2 self portraits, one in charcoal and one in pencil, below are the photos: we used mirrors to find out where our features were to be drawn.
Street art was our third art project and I made a kony 2012 poster for april 20ths cover the night. below is a photo, it was inspired by quotes and facts from the video promotion for the cause.
We also created fashion inspired collages with our own drawings of styles and fashion as well as what inspired the drawings.
the final project olivia and I did was the cieling tiles in Mrs. Hulls classroom.
for the fourth quarter I think I want to pick a single object or thing like a butterfly persay, and have to draw it in every different aspect and method I can think of.

This PSSA topic is centered around the life cycle of stars. The star is born from the nebula is goes through a process in which the core changes, eventually running out of energy and collapsing on itself or becoming dimmer. The process depends on how big the star is.

-Have a conversation with someone and ask them about what they did that day. If I can be comfortable and keep the conversation then I think I will be successful.
-I would talk to my Columbian friend who is fluent in spanish and will be able to tell me what I need to improve on.
I'm fiddling around with some of the effects that Photoshop has... The black area in the swirl kinda makes the picture look like a Rainbow Black Hole or something.
I have couple of spanish friends who speak spanish fluently and I'm going to have little chat with them.
I'm fiddling around with the gaussian blur a bit. It's fun, actually. I was amazed at how the blade turned out.
"Both natural processes and human activities are capable of changing the environment."-Study Island
Slow Changes to the environment include:
•Changing of the seasons
Rapid Changes to the environment include:
Humans contribute to the environment in many ways, especially if they are treating the environment bad.
•Fossil fuels burning
•Genetically engineering organisms
So we are going to focus on ecological succession and it's impact on the environment. Ecological succession is basically a process that a community undergoes and has a predictable change. Think of "I Am Legend" when you see the deers running around and trees growing in the streets. Basically that street has turned into a "forest" that's ecological succession.Example below:
Over time as you can in 1840 it started out as a pond but ended up being a forest. In 1870 you can that some of the plants are starting to get a little bigger and that the fish are still present. In 1900 algae are starting to fill up the pond. 1930 the pond is almost covered now with a tree on the side and algae almost filling the whole thing. In the last two years the trees are more present with the pond covered with algae and dirt.
Questions to think about:
What is ecological succession?
What is primary ecological succession?
Listed below is pictures of ecological succession which one shows it the most?
- To not use any english words in between.
- Try not to stutter and space out a lot.
I already talked to a telemarketer in spanish. He was laughing a little because I asked him if he could speak spanish to me for my school project. He was really nice though, he helped me a lot.
Michael Phelps who exercises 9 hours/day
Lindsay Lohan who needs to gain weight for a role
Angelina Jolie, a vegetarian with a voracious appetite
Dora la Exploradora who is vegan
Nick Jonas who is diabetic
- to indicate quantity (UNA manzana, DOS hamburguesas)
- to provide variety so they don’t get sick of it
- to recommend a drink (un vaso de = a glass of, una taza de = a mug of)
- to be creative (Peruvian Andes cuisine?)
You can use words that are not on the vocab sheet.
- Keep going with the conversation without stoping or saying "Umm" a lot.
- Make the conversation flow better and not stumble over words I do not know how to pronounce.
- Learn how to use conjugations better and make sure I am using them correctly.
I want to know more about the spanish speaking countries and I think it is better to learn from them instead of something read on the internet or text book.

The different types of simple machines that we study today were defined by Renaissance scientists as part of a renewed interest in Greek technological studies. They classified six simple machines into two categories. Three of the machines (screw, inclined plane, and wedge) apply force along a straight path, while the other three (wheel & axle, lever, and pulley) apply force around a pivot point in order to divide the workload. Modern machines often make use of several or all of these simple machines.
The Simple Machines
A wheel and axle has a very simple use: to reduce the size of the input force needed for a task by extending the distance through which the force is applied. The axle turns in the same direction as the wheel, and because the wheel has a larger radius than the axle, the distance the wheel travels has to be greater than the axle. Because of this, the input force that is needed to originally turn the axle is reduced. Common examples of a wheel and axles are used in doorknobs, wagon wheels.http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/35700/35781/wheelandaxle_35781_lg.gif
In the same way, a pulley reduces the amount of input force by changing the direction of the initial force itself. A pulley is a rope that is strung through a wheel that is used to lift objects. Multiple pulley systems easily reduce the size of input forces. Pulleys are used in everything from flagpoles, to car engines. Two or more pulleys in one system allow mechanical power and speed to be transmitted across the axles, giving it a close relationship to the wheel and axle.
A lever is a straight, dense object that rotates around a point. The point it revolves around is called a fulcrum. A lever can lower the amount of force needed to complete a task by increasing the distance through which the force is applied. For example, the longer the lever, the less force is needed to rotate the lever around the fulcrum. Crowbars, wrenches, even human limbs are examples of levers.
An inclined plane is used to move heavy objects up an elevated slope. This simple machine operates on the familiar mathematical concept that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. By decreasing the amount of gravitational resistance, the inclined plane allows the user to move an object up a less steep surface to reach a high point, rather than lifting a heavy object straight into the air. Ramps and inclined planes are used by moving companies, in construction, and for recreation.
Screws are cylindrical shafts with small strips wound around their surface in an ascending path from the tip. A screw is essentially a combination of a wheel & axle and an inclined plane. The shaft turns while the small inclined plane guides the material from the tip to the head. Construction crews use small forms of screws to fasten building materials, and larger screws are used to transport large quantities of fluid material from one area to another (Archimedes Screw Pump).
A wedge is a double inclined plane that is used for lifting heavy objects, or splitting dense substances. It has a rectangular base with two triangular sides. They work to separate the objects from the surfaces in which they rest. An axe, or any other type of blade is a type of wedge. They’re used to separate solid material into two different pieces. A wedge can also be used to generate friction between two objects that are not touching in order to control its movements. A door-stop is an object that is put between the floor and the bottom of a door in order for the door to stay at a certain position.
The basic major understanding of atoms are that they composed virtually everything in the universe. Everything is composed of atoms, from your mom, to your dad and even something huge like the Sun is composed of atoms. Without the basic structure of atoms, mass, and objects with really large masses couldn't exist. Also with things such as ionic and covalent bonds give way to much more complex structure and organisms like humans, and the Sun.
