In school we are doing a presidential election.We are split in groups called Democratic,Republican and the Green party. We
Today in class we learned how the leaves turn colors.(Red) When the seasons change the leaves turn different colors, but how???
There are is thing called anthocyanins this is what turns the leaves red. The anthocyanins protect leaves from sun damage so when winter comes the tree and leaves won't freeze . This also helps them to stay on the tree longer. This lets the tree to have more time to gain more nutrients from its leaves. (Yellow and Orange) There is a thing that is called a pigment it holds all the yellow and orange colors. The way the leaves are green is the chlorophyll. It turns off when the air gets cooler. The tree knows that the seasons are changing so it will freeze if the leaves are still green. When the leaves turn brown that means all of the waste in the tree that the tree doesn't need.
Today we went to the historical reenactment we saw all of these cool characters and settings of the place they worked or did. The first person we saw was a man named David he was a musket artist and in the army. He told my partner to go run to the yellow flag after the guns shot. After the guns shot my partner ran to the flag and the rest of the group walked over after. We were dived by if we were Irish or Scottish. Then he pulled me Erin and Corrinne after that he gave us new last names. Then the colinist wanted my group to trade food and we would have to fight in the war and risk our lives, we all decide no so then King georg said" if we do it he will give us 200 archers of land or everyone in our family and granteuu that we will stay alive. After that we heard the bell and moved on to the next person who was Laura Gordon She was a hair stylest she made wigs for men and female. Laura made the wigs of hotse hair goat hair and human hair.
