Minecraft Student Blogging Challenge #2

March 16, 2013 by Ethan · 23 Comments · Games, Life, Student Blogging Challenge

Week 2 in the Student Blogging Challenge, I’m going to write about Minecraft. I love to play Minecraft. I love to build awesome houses, explore, and mine.

I made this house on Minecraft.

I also like to play with my friends on Minecraft. We love to explore the new updates on creative mode together. The main objective on Minecraft is to build, mine, explore, and have fun! On Minecraft there are zombies, skeletons, spiders, creepers, pigs, chickens, cows, sheep, etc.

Minecraft Wiki is the wiki for Minecraft. Minecraft Wiki helps you find out how to make things, how to build things, how things work, and more! Also there are servers. With servers you can play with people across the world. Also you can just play with your friends on servers too.

Do you play Minecraft?

My passions student blogging challenge #2

September 26, 2012 by Ethan · 4 Comments · Books, Games, Student Blogging Challenge

My passions are: reading books, doing puzzles, and playing board games.

This is how far I am now.

My first passion is reading books, it is my best passion. What I like about reading books so much is that I get to sometimes learn something. Also what I like so much about reading books is that I get sucked into the book.

My second passion that I love doing the most is doing puzzles. What I like about doing puzzles is that I have to find out where every piece goes. Right now I am doing a 1000 piece puzzle. It is so fun because I have to find out where a lot of people go.

This is what it will look like.

My third passion is playing board games. What makes this my third passion is that I get to be able to be with family and friends while I’m playing a game.

What are your three favorite passions and why?

This is the second student blogging challenge.

 

On October 1 I finished the puzzle. I lost one of the puzzle pieces, so now I have only 999 pieces of the puzzle.

My Favorites, Student Blogging Challenge #9

November 20, 2011 by Ethan · 8 Comments · Books, Games, Sports, Student Blogging Challenge

What are your favorites? There are so many favorites in the world it’s hard just to pick one. I will be telling you about three of my favorites. The reason why I’m doing this is because of the student blogging challenge asked about our favorites.

Some rights reserved by matthewjuran

My favorite video game is Minecraft. I like Minecraft because I get to mine and build anything I want to. I’ve built an under ground house, I’ve also farmed, mined, and I’m breeding animals.

My favorite sport is soccer. I like soccer because it is fun to play. My family has played soccer too. This season, I’ve also made a goal in a game.

My favorite series of books is the Warriors series. I like the series because it’s about cats . They have to learn to live in the wild. It’s hard for them because there are clans, the clans fight each other for food and territory.

Now you know some of my favorites.

What are your favorites?

Did you know anything about my favorites?

Interviewing My Grandpa, Student Blogging Challenge #8

November 15, 2011 by Ethan · 7 Comments · History, Student Blogging Challenge

“After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt cited military necessity as the basis for incarcerating 120,000 Japanese Americans–adults and children, immigrants and citizens alike.” My Grandpa was one of the 120,000 Japanese Americans who was incarcerated. For my blogging challenge I am going to interview my Grandpa.

In this video you will hear my Grandpa telling you about the Japanese internment such as why he went, where he went, what he did there, how long he stayed, walking to the mess hall, and what it was like there.

One of the questions I asked later in our interview was, “what happened to his home and everything he owned?” He told me, “when the army came to their house, they said to bring what they could carry to the interment camp (they lost everything when they left the house).” My grandpa was about 9 when he went in and when he came out he was about 13.

Here are some more interview questions I asked:

How old were you? What did you play? (mp3)

What did your parents do after the war? (mp3)

How long did it take before being treated nicely? (mp3)

Grandma, what was it like for you during the war? (mp3)

Grandma, What happened to the other families homes? (mp3)

Grandpa, How many Internment Camps were there? (mp3)

Here are two photos that my grandpa had from his childhood:

 

What would you do if you were put into an interment camp?

 Do you have any more information about any interment camps?
