This is my latest draft of chocolate milk:
Some schools might ban chocolate milk. I don’t agree Chocolate milk should be served because it has healthy nutrition, kids like it, and chocolate milk doesn’t have too much added sugar.
Chocolate milk has the same 9 essential nutrients as regular milk. These nutrients are calcium, potassium, phosphorus, protein, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12, riboflavin, and niacin. Studies show that kids who drink chocolate milk meet more of their nutritional needs, and are not heavier than non milk drinkers. See? “KIDS WHO DRINK CHOCOLATE MILK MEET MORE OF THEIR NUTRITIONAL NEEDS!” Kids are being healthy by drinking chocolate milk.
When chocolate milk is taken off the school menu, milk consumption dropped by about 37%. That’s a lot of kids meeting less of their nutritional needs. Kids like the taste of chocolate milk. So the milk consumption will drop by approximately 37%. Bad for the kid’s nutrition
Some people say in 8 ounce carton of chocolate milk has too much added sugar. The truth is, in 8 ounce carton of chocolate milk only has 3 teaspoons add sugar. In total that is 6 teaspoons of sugar. 3 of those teaspoons natural sugar. See not too much added sugar.
The giant debate. Should chocolate milk be served in schools. That is part of our research based argument writing unit. That is where we research a topic, and then write about it. It's like, awesome! I mean, It's totally AWESOME!!!!! FINALLY I GET TO WRITE ABOUT MY OPINION ON SOMETHING AND I HAVE FACTS TO SUPPORT IT! YEAH!!!!!!!!!! My position is that chocolate milk should be served in schools.
I haven't been on Weebly that often for some time. I will try to post more. So stay tuned!
Mystery Skype XIII
The Colonial Mystery Skype
Hey! Welcome to Mystery Skype XIII! The Colonial Mystery Skype. We are now (unlike other mystery skypes) only asking questions on their colonial history. In my opinion, I like the other kind of mystery skype. Anyway, we already know they are in one of the original 13 states in the United States. Everyone is getting ready to do the real skype! Mr. Ullman just turned on the Apple TV on. The skype is about to start. We already have a lot of information on our colonial state. I don’t want to say what our state is right away. Now the skype is starting. For real. The skype just timed out. They’re using an outdated version of skype. We can hear them but we can’t see them. We now can see them. Yay!!!!!!! We are asking first. “Are you in the middle colonies?” “No.” They are not. “Did you grow wheat?” They ask “yes” We ask “ Are you in the Southern Colonies?” “ No” They ask ”Are you in the Southern Colonies?” “ No” “Were you a safe place for catholics in the colonial times?” “Maybe not.” “Did you have a big population in your colony?” The research team is working on it. We don’t know yet. They are clarifying their question. The research team is still working on it. “We don’t think so” is our answer. “Did your colony have religious freedom?” “No” “ Are you in the middle colonies?” “Yes” The research team is working on a question. “Are you in Massachusetts. I mean were you in the Massachusetts bay colony?” “Yes!!” They are guessing if we were in Delaware colony. No. “Is your colony New York colony?” “No” “Was your town founded in colonial times?” “Yes” . “Is your colony New Jersey? ¨ ¨Yes¨ ¨Are you in Boston¨ ¨No¨ ¨Are you in Trenton? ¨ ¨No¨. ¨Was your town founded before 1650? ¨ ¨Yes¨. ¨Do you live in a city? ¨ ¨No¨. We think theyŕe in Plymouth. ¨Was your town founded in 1630? ¨ ¨No¨. Plymouth was founded in 1620. ¨Was your town founded in colonial times? ¨ ¨Yes¨. Erin told them our town. ¨Were you founded after 1630?” ¨Yes¨. ¨Is your town near Atlantic City? ¨ ¨No¨ . ¨Are you in Concord? ¨ ¨No¨. The research team is confused? ¨Are you near NYC? ¨ Define near¨. ¨No¨. We are not near NYC. ¨Are you in Hingham?¨ We are getting clues. I need a break. I´m back! They still haven't answered your question. They are famous for clams and shellfish. We are thinking of a clue. We had a famous revolutionary battle. Getting Warmer. Maybe clues wasn't a great idea. We're closing our town. We think they're in Dedham. They aren´t. Are we near Fort Nassau? Are we? Maybe yes, maybe no. We think they're in Essex. Do they know where we are? No they don´t. Are they in Essex? They are not in Essex. They´re in Essex county.Is your town. Are you in Englishtown? No way!!! The battle of Monmouth happened in Englishtown. We are still trying to guess they´re town. Are you in Princeton? Yes!!!!!!!!!! Where are they? I really don't know. They have the largest number of first Puritan Homes in America. Are you in Ipswich? Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They´re town was founded in 1634 they think. Ed Emberley lives in their town. Who is Ed Emberley? Our class has 15 kids and our school has about 300 kids Pre-K through 5. They are a public school. Like us. They have kids K-5. They are all Patriots fans.
Congrats on the super bowl New England. They are 4th graders in Winthrop.The battle of Princeton happened here.
My project is going okay. I haven't started what I want to do yet. I plan to get to that soon. I am right now watching videos on how to use the mods. Those mods are CustomNPCs, and Worldedit. I am also going to use computercraft, but I know how to use it. I have found out how to use the CustomNPCs mod. I still need to learn how to use Worldedit. I cant start my project any time soon because my project involves Minecraft. I don't know how I'm going to use minecraft.
I learned that there is more to thecustom NPCs mod than just NPCs. There is more items, armor and blocks. I still need to learn more about worldedit. How do I create terrains with Worldedit? I really need to know.
I think I'm making a good use of my time learning how to use the mods I'm using. Minecraft isn't able to do most things without mods. I feel that I could start on my project if Minecraft was available. Minecraft could probably be downloaded on one of the class desktops. I could probably do less talking and more doing. I should stop writing this and start my project.
My next steps are to present my pitch and start my project. I need minecraft to be downloaded.
We had minecraft EDU again. We did something called the water challenge. That is where we have one water source and we have to start a farm. We were split into 4 groups. I was on the yellow team. I was the one who started the farm on my team.
In class, we did something called Minecraft EDU. It is where we learn through minecraft. Our first server was the tutorial world. It is where we learned how to play. Now, we are doing a world called Turtle Island. That is with the computercraft mod. We are learning to code with the turtles. Turtles are the robots in the mod.
