The British had very advanced weapons at the time and better training. America had very poor weapons and no experience whatsoever so England should have easily won the Revolutionary War. Here's why I think America won the war: the British had won many of the early battles so after awhile they started to get cocky and maybe wasn't sending as much troops or stopped trying as hard. Or more people started taking Americas side in the war so they were getting more help and defeated Britain.
What I think after the tug of war
So we had a red team ( representing Britain ) and a blue team ( representing America ) on each side. The red team had all of the taller kids in the class and the blue team had all of the shorter people in the class there was also a team that was the white team the kids that were watching the war. At the end of the war America would win Independence if they won but Britain would win nothing. Mr. Solarz said that America got homework passes for motivation and to represent the Independence but he didn't end up giving any out while the war was going on Britain got so close to winning but Mr. Solarz started to help America. Then the kids that were watching who represent France joined America too and Britain got 1 person who represented a German Hessian because in the real war they helped out Britain. America won the tug of war because they had a lot more allies and Britain did have the German Hessians but it wasn't enough.
The reason why most leaves change color is mainly due to the freezing cold temperatures during the Fall season. As it gets cold the green leaves start to fade and also due to a lack of sunlight in some parts of the world.
Going on this field trip was a very fun experience and I learned a lot. Here are some of the things that I learned while I was at the Historical Reenactment, I learned that militia men carried lots of weapons and different kinds of knives. They also had to have a lot of things in order to survive at night in the freezing cold like flint ( to make fire or sharpen knives ) flint was one of their most useful materials they carried. One of the things that I liked was how well they stayed in character another thing I liked was
Stay in character - you are you, but you are an apprentice in 1775, Boston. You have traveled out to Illinois to meet these people and learn more about what life was like in this part of the world.
Write about meeting your character (the one listed above) for the first time. What are they like? What was he or she doing? What did you learn from them? Create a story about your first experience with them. You'll be spending more time with them tomorrow on our field trip!
Comparing Light Bulbs with Differences in Wattage
I found it amazing that a 25-watt incandescent bulb will last 2500 hours! That seems like a very long time! Especially, when I compare it to a 100-watt incandescent bulb that lasts 750 hours.
I was surprised to discover that a 100-watt incandescent bulb gives off about 7 times more light than a 25 watt incandescent bulb! It only seemed like four or five times more.
Comparing Different types of light bulbs with Similar Wattage
(1) What has been easy?: Something that has been easy is typing in good questions it wad still hard to do but easier than being a sharer.
(2) What has been hard?: Doing my job which is a sharer is probably the hardest thing that I have to do also thinking of specific questions.
(3) What has been fun?: All of the collaboration that we've been doing has been really fun and also when we guess something right.
(4) What has been boring?: Nothing that we've been doing has been really boring in my opinion.
1. What was your maximum temperature (use your Data Chart, not the picture)? The Maximum was 94.8 degrees.
2. What was your minimum temperature (use your Data Chart, not the picture)? The Minimum was 89.5 degrees
3. What is your range? If you had any penalties or gifts, include those in your total. The Range was 5.3 degrees
4. What materials did you use in your insulated bottle (type them in order from your first layer, second layer, and third layer.)? We first put Plastic Wrap then we put Bubble Wrap and then Quilt.
5. Why did you choose the materials that you did? We knew that plastic would be a really good conductor.
6. What are some materials that you didn't choose? felt, tin foil,
7. Why didn't you choose them? From the previous project I did I knew tin foil was an insulator and for felt we decided the ones we already had were better.
8. Explain any blips on your graph (if you have them). Why did it do that?
9. Is an insulator a good or a poor conductor of heat energy? A poor conductor.
