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?

Make a list of the people and include one question you would ask them in an interview. You cannot repeat the same question.”

These are the ten people that I would like to ask:

George Washington = When did  you feel that you wanted independence?

Martin Luther King Jr. = When did you first think about equal rights?

Albert Einstein = Why did you quit school to become a scientist?

William Shakespeare = What inspired you to become a poet?

Isaac Newton = How did you figure out the rules of motion when no one else could?

Abraham Lincoln = What goaded you to free the enslaved?

Christopher Columbus = When you first explored America, what did you do first?

Ben Franklin = When you experimented with lighting, did you have any safety precautions?

Thomas Jefferson = How did you feel when you wrote The Declaration of Independence?

Harriet Tubman = What would you have done if someone caught you while you were leading others to the next stop?

 

Would you pick these people and why?

Who would you pick?

My passions student blogging challenge #2 http://blogs.goaj.org/gamekid/2012/09/26/my-passions-student-blogging-challenge-2/ http://blogs.goaj.org/gamekid/2012/09/26/my-passions-student-blogging-challenge-2/#comments Thu, 27 Sep 2012 00:08:22 +0000 http://blogs.goaj.org/gamekid/?p=353 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.

Among The Hidden, Book Review http://blogs.goaj.org/gamekid/2012/03/08/among-the-hidden-book-review/ http://blogs.goaj.org/gamekid/2012/03/08/among-the-hidden-book-review/#comments Thu, 08 Mar 2012 21:16:25 +0000 http://blogs.goaj.org/gamekid/?p=322 Among the Hidden is by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This book is about a boy that is a third child, named Luke (third children are outlawed). In the beginning of the book Luke was dieing to go outside. He was always able to go outside and help on the farm and play. He could do that all the time, until people were cutting down trees and building houses there. This was horrible for Luke. Now that people were outside Luke’s family had to keep the blinds shut and Luke now had to eat at the bottom of the stairs. That later that day Luke was keeping track who was in and out of their houses, when everyone in a house was out of it he saw a face in a window. He thought to himself “was that another third child? Who could that be?” He was tempted to go over to that house and see if that face was just real. The next week he went over to the house to see if the face was real.

Is the face real?

What will happen next?

Will he meet anyone?

If so, how will he or she react?
