This year we had to build rockets and launch them. A lot of the projects that I
have involved in can get boring. But the rocket project really did keep me
In the fifth grade my friend Juan and I had a history project where we studied
Mexico. We learned a lot about the history, culture, myths and stories
about the people and the country.
We had a project in social studies were we had to make a boat out of paper.
And we could not use glue, tape of scissors. And it had to float. It was fun
because as a group we had to sort out the different ideas that each had
to build the boat. And we made it work. It floated.
I like the one where I built a water filter with two liter bottles, gravel and duct tape.
It was fun and easy and it worked.
I like two that I have had to do. One was when we built rockets and the
other when I did an entire solar system with planets, moons and everything
in the solar system. It wasn't easy either. It took some effort to do the
entire solar system.
I had two. The rocket project because it took planning, some skill and
strategy, and team work to make it fly correctly. It flew but not correctly.
I also like the water filters made with plastic bottles and duct tape. It was
fun but it did not go to well either. But I still like doing them both.
I had to build a animal habitat. It was a habitat that almost any animal could
have lived in. My dad and I got to work on it together and that made it
It was 4-H project when I was in the fifth grade. I had to build a recycling project
using materials that I found around the house.
This year at Christmas time we made a snowman out of food. It was made of
pretzel sticks, ritz crackers, marshmallows and other food items. I worked
on the project with other class mates and it was sticky, gooey and messy.
