Week 2 - Day 3 - Activity 2

In this activity I learned about a huge drought that had hit the United States and damaged all of the crops. It made it a huge struggle for farmers and their families. I came up with three fund raising ideas that I could fund money to help the families that struggled from that incident.
Fund Raising Ideas
Have a bake sell
Have a competition for kids
Have a Yard sell

Week 2 - Day 3 - Activity 1

In this activity I talk about what I do to de-stress or relax. When I get stressed I usually I read a book, go for a walk or listen to music. I find reading a book stress relieving because It gets my mind off things. In my opinion going for a walk also helps because it allows you to blow off steam. When I am trying to relax I listen to music because I find it soothing.

Week 2 - Day 2 - Bonus Activity

In this activity I read about the flight across the Tasman from Australia to New Zealand. There were a four man crew aboard the Southern Cross airplane. There was man named T.H. McWilliams that was in charge of operating the radio. Unfortunately the radio stop working shortly after the airplane took off. The ice and rain was blocking the view of the pilot Kingsford Smith. Fortunately they made it across the Tasman and landed safely in Christchurch. After reading about it I to wrote a poem.
My Poem
The snow that covers my windshield has left me blinded
and the radio has stop working were thinking of solutions
so were are all open minded, my heart beat slowly rises
but the terror is now gone the long trip has ended
and were are all finally where we belong

Week 2 - Day 2 - Activity 2

In this activity I was looking at a painting by Tamara de Lempicka called Self Portrait. I found this painting fascinating because there is more to it then what meets the eye. I would give this picture a 4/5 because I feel like there is an interesting backstory to this painting.

Week 2 - Day 2 - Activity 1

In this activity I watched the trailer for the 1925 Gold rush movie. In the 1920's there were many cinemas being built. They would play lots of movies witch had no sound. The two most famous movies were the Gold Rush and The Lion's Cage both starring a famous actor called Charlie Chaplin. I had watched the trailer for the Gold Rush. From what I got from the trailer I think the movie is about different people that are trying to find a bunch of gold for their own needs. I don't think I would enjoy a silent film because I think you could get a better understanding of what is going on if the actors were talking.

Week 2 - Day 1 - Bonus Activity

In this activity I read a poem called In Flanders Fields. It was about the war and the soldiers who fought for our safety. I found the poem very interesting and captive. This poem made me feel happy and appreciative for the freedom and rights we have now because of the soldiers who fought for our country.

Week 2 - Day 1 - Activity 2

In this activity I was reading about women's rights to vote. I learned that the women in Saudi Arabia were not allowed to vote until 2015. I think it was unfair that the women in Saudi Arabia weren't allowed to vote until 2015 because everyone should have the right to vote. I think this because everyone has their own point of view.
