What I Know About the Northeast

  Hi Everyone! 
I know that the Northeast is famous for The Statue of Liberty. I know that the Statue is a Symbol of freedom and that it was a gift from the French. I know it is a reminder of freedom to our country. I know that New York is famous for 9/11, the terrist attack that killed many, many people. I also know about the Liberty Bell. I've heard of the Boston Tea Party but I don't know much about it.

How I Died

   I'm the ghost of the girl who died. So I'm looking for food and I can't find any. I get very weak, too weak to continue. The plants around don't look to be nourishing I fall asleep and I DIDN'T wake up. Thinking about it just makes me sad so, I'm going to change the topic. Slavery is a terrible thing. I don't think this is fair at all. I hope the world changes but I'm not sure it will anytime soon. I never did find my friends, I feel like I'll never get to do any of the great things I could do. My time ran out, I'm done. Goodbye, goodbye.

Kathleen's Seventh Blog

Hey Everyone!
   I don't really know too much about the southeast but I do know that there is a lot of rich soil which is good for farming. I know that Florida has a lot of tourism because of Disney world and all of the other amusement parks.

I think I want to learn more on New Orleans. Also, I'd like to learn more about
why the soil is so rich there. I am also interested in why there is so much coal there. I want to learn more about the types of people that live there.I want to know about the types of climate the Southeast has. I'm wanting to know what kinds of animals live in the Southeast.

Where I Went In the Southwest

Hey everyone!
I went to Phoenix,The Santa Fe trail,The Grand canyon,The Hoover Dam and Bricktown. I think they all were really fun.
   At the Grand Canyon, I learned so many things.  Like that it was carved by the Colorado river or that it is 277 miles long and is up to 5,000 feet deep! I certainly would not want to fall down there!
   When I went to the Hoover Dam I learned that it was constructed between 1931 and 1936.The Hoover Dam is in Mohave County Arizona. I think that the Hoover dam is a huge tourist attraction.
   Next I went to Phoenix,Arizona. Phoenix is the capital of Arizona and the sixth most populated city in the U.S. The population is over 1,000,000! Phoenix was founded in 1861. In Phoenix there are 5c's,copper,cattle,climate,cotton and citrus.
   When I went to the Santa Fe Trail I learned that was a 19th century transportation route. It connected Missouri to Santa Fe, New Mexico during the Mexican-American war.
   Lastly, I went to Bricktown. Bricktown is east of downtown Oklahoma city the first brick structures were typically only one or two stories high and built from 1898 to 1903. Larger ones were built from 1903 to 1911.
