My Close Friend

210916Hi, my name is Brenna and this is a photo of me and my dog Sadie. She is part Lab and part Australian Shepherd. She is about 9 years old. I help take care of Sadie by filling her food and water bowls, playing with her outside and sometimes walking her around the block. I like to play tug-of-war with her, take photos of her, run around, and just cuddle with her. I like how she can sense when I need friend or someone to talk to or just have a nice silent companion. Plus, I like having a friend to play with outside when no one else can. Continue reading

The story is of Robinson Crusoe who spent thirty years living on an isolated island. It was based on the life of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish castaway who lived for four years on a Pacific island.

Think Eat Save!

300816_1When you’re done eating your lunch at school, do you throw what you didn’t eat in the garbage? Do you often throw food out instead of saving it or putting it in the compost?

Food thrown into the garbage becomes waste and this waste creates greenhouse gas. Greenhouse gases are a major contributor to the change in the climate. Food waste also uses precious land and water. Because it is getting to be such a big problem in the world, the United Nations has begun a new global campaign. It is, “Think Eat Save”. Here is how it works: Continue reading

Night in the Mansion

290816_3By Hannah, Age 10

Aah! Aah!!!

The scream rang in my ears. I had to find out what was going on because I needed to help the screamer. It sounded like they were in trouble.


There it was again. I followed the sound until I came to a locked bathroom. I cut a gigantic hole in the door and jumped through—the criminal was gone. There lay an unconscious woman at my feet. I needed to find out who did this so I could stop the person from harming more people. So after I’d called 911 and the ambulance had taken the woman to the hospital, I got my detective fingerprint pad from my bedroom. (Yes, I do live in this mansion and that woman was my masseuse.)
