Today we had an author visit and it was with Susan Slade she has a website and I will put a link to it. http://suzanneslade.com/Suzanne/Read.htm
"This attractive, accessible title uses the Lincoln Memorial as a vehicle ot outline the history of the Civil Rights Movement from the Emancipation Proclamation to Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech to the 2008 presidential election. Slade explains in clear, descriptive prose ... Bootman's realistic watercolor spreads are striking ..."--School Library Journal
“My love of writing began with reading. Growing up, reading was one of my favorite activities. Every year I joined my library’s summer reading club and read stacks of books - chapter books, picture books, non-fiction books . . . all kinds of books! I loved discovering exciting new places and people through reading. I still spend hours at my library reading children’s books. I'm fascinated by the colorful photos and facts in non-fiction books. I enjoy the beautiful illustrations and carefully woven stories of picture books. I love to read and I love to write!” -Susan
One thing I found out is that she lives north of Chicago just like us! She also has a dog called Couduroy and the dog is a Yorkshire Terrier
The reason we went to the Field Museum in the afternoon to see the Meteorologist was to learn about meteors'. One of the reasons that taking a day off of school to go on a field trip was worth missing school was that I think that a lot of people really enjoys learning about the solar system and meteors'. (I know I do) Then one of the most interesting things that I learned when we where learning about Meteorologist was that the closest meteor near Chicago was so extreamly cool that it was right under O'Hare airport! I was amazed by that. We as a classroom personaly would love to learn more about meteors' in classroom for a science unit. That would lead to spending more money but it would be worth it. I had so much fun listening and watching the Meteorologist talking about meteors'.
On January 30th we went to the Field Museum in Chicago. In this picture slideshow you will see Denis and he was our tour guide for the morning secession of our trip. He walked us around the Mass extinction tour which was about how our world grew and the dinosaurs, the under water life, volcano's that polluted the air. I learned many new things that I did not know about our earth that I just learned while I was there. The morning secession was about all of the mass extinctions that happened and then how the earth was formed and how it created the earths crust/surface. The the morning secession was worth missing school because we all learned many, many things that I did not know before I went to the museum. I don't really know if there are other earth-like planets in this universe because I don't have that much facts or research for me to know if their are any earth-like planets. In third grade we did not study the solar system but it is part of the third grade unit so I don't really know that much about the solar system. To have an answer to answer that question.
