Madagascar by Afzal Akhtar

My class 4-202E is learning about Madagascar. Madagascar is the 4th largest island on earth. There are the lemurs and they only live in Madagascar. There are many places to go in Madagascar. One is checking out lime stone tsingy formation. The limestone color is greenish blue. That’s what have learned so far. Recently we made a fact sheet and brochure of Madagascar in class.


This is Afzal Akhtar signing off bye Mr Jump.

Madagascar – A Biodiversity Hotspot

From 1999 to 2010, scientists discovered 615 new species in Madagascar, including 41 mammals and 61 reptiles. Madagascar has several critically threatened species including the Silky Sifaka, a lemur, which is one of the rarest mammals on earth. – World Wildlife Fund, Madagascar  (CLICK ON THIS LINK TO ANSWER SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS THAT WEREN’T IN THE VIDEO)

8th Grade by Furqan Khan 802

Hey… it’s been awhile hasn’t it. All hail the blogger of the century… ME!!! Furqan Khan! MUWAHAHAHAHA!! All things said and done it’s been quite awhile so I just wanted to drop my regards and post bringing back old memories and stuff.

Hi P.S.119 how are you all doing? Good? That’s nice to know. To be honest, I wish Cunningham wasn’t as stressful as it is. I passed easily in 6th grade with a 97.84 average, I passed easily in 7th grade with a 93.56 average but now 8th grade is killing me. Here’s why:

When we have classwork our science teacher gives us like 6 worksheets with 10-15 questions on each sheet and expects us to finish in 1 period (43 minutes). And when like almost all the class doesn’t finish she starts lecturing us about how unsuccessful we’re going to be when we grow up if we keep it up and everybody’s like “I understand” and then there’s me like I don’t understand. Let’s face it, I was surprised I even finished 4 of those stupid worksheets.

Another reason it’s so stressful. Tests! I don’t mind tests. They’re essential to learning, I understand that. However, when we have these tests we have them on the same dates. Yesterday we originally were supposed to have 3 tests. Thank the lord our English teacher was generous enough to understand and change the date of our test but then our S.S and Math Test we still had. One test was 30 questions and the other test was 25 questions. Once in October we had 4 tests in all the major subjects! I EXPLODED BRO!! Not to mention I only passed 3 of them.

Another reason it’s so stressful: Behavior. I swear the teachers in my school will overreact to anything you do. The door was open and this kid in the hallway banged his head on the fire hydrant and fell on the ground and started crying. I asked him if he was okay and asked if I should get an ice pack and then my teacher called my mom and said I was disturbing the learning process and in class my teacher yelled at me and said “Your grades are more in jeopardy than this kid’s injuries.” Then when I told my mom about it she didn’t believe me. So guess who’s grounded?

Welp… so those are my reasons. So how are all you teachers? Mr, Jump, Ms. Berretta, Ms. Riveccio, Ms. Hym, Ms, Fernandez, Ms. Snow, Ms. Pierce, etc etc. The time in P.S.119 was fun and way less stressful than in Cunningham. I wish we could go back to those ethics. And now… I take my leave so…. May Peace Prevail on Earth!

What do these graphs tell you about the Argentine economy? How does it compare to the US economy? Give specific examples based on the charts. If a nine day trip from Buenos Aires to Buenos Aires starts at $2499, how much does the trip cost per day? What does this fee include and what is NOT included?
