Maniac Magee Theme

Our 5th grade class recently finished the book Maniac Magee. I thuoght this book was entertaining and I recomend it. But in this blog i’m going to be discussing what I think the theme of the book is. In this book there is lots of action so I think the theme of the book is always be brave. That means that you should always take risks and be creative. I think that is the theme because, like I said before there is lots of action. And in most of the book Maniac Magee has to be brave and make face pretty hard problems.

The World expands

Over this month in social studies we have been learning about Euripean explores finding North America. This entire lesson we have been thinking about one question, have the Americas been discovered or conquered? Since we have finished the lesson I am going to tell you about my opinion.

 

what I think is that the Americas were conquered because one, the Indians or native Americans were there before the explorers. Also because eventually the settlers the Indians made peace or an agreement.

Blood on the river “the fire”

When the fire started I became VERY scared, manly because I wasn’t sure what  was going to happen next. And when the fire destroyed the food I was worried because now they will have nothing to eat, but then I thought about the chickens what if they were still alive then they would still have food. Lastly I felt bad for the gentleman and everyone else because they spent time and worked very hard on building it and now I was all destroyed, I know that if that happens to me I would be upset.
