The good and the bad…

This post will be about what I found good about the blog and bad what I found bad. I liked having a blog because it lets us look and interact with other people. I liked looking at other peoples blogs and seeing what other people feel strongly about. It was bad because I od disappointed when I did not get a lot of  viewers. Overall this was a great experience and I am looking forward to doing it again next year. I learned a lot about other parts of the world and there point of view. : )

Thank you,

Week 10: My favorite post

When I asked people how they liked my blog they Definitely said this one. It was the longest and I did the most for it. It is also my favorite post. I enjoyed this the most because I got to really look hard and find amazing but horrible facts about African children. I searched an searched and even donated some money to the cause. I liked it especially because it teaches us how blessed we are to live like this.  And to be part of it, even if it’s just writing a post felt great. I did not get as many visitors as I had hoped but the best thing is that someone got the message. The link to it is Africa. This was my favorite and least favorite post because it brought me sadness but joy to know that we can all help. Even if its just writing a letter or writing a post about them.

That all students should have a personal blog from Grade 6 onwards

I think that from 6th grade onward you should have a personal blog because it teaches you independence. It also lets you interact easier. You can do a lot more. Like what we are doing right now it makes learning a lot of fun. It lets you meet students from all across the world. That is why I feel you should have a blog after 6th grade. now for more of these topics go to

Week 4

Have you ever wondered if you were going to get dinner of clean water tonight? Today I learned about poverty and that if we try we really can help the people who need it. All you need to do is donate a couple dollars or even write them. I found out that The Hunger Games is based off of this. For more on this go to this link.

 

 Now here are the top 5 facts I could find on poverty.

1.  At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day.

2. More than 80 percent of the world’s population lives in countries where income differentials are widening.

3. The poorest 40 percent of the world’s population accounts for 5 percent of global income. The richest 20 percent accounts for three-quarters of world income.

4.   According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. And they “die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death.”

5.  Around 27-28 percent of all children in developing countries are estimated to be underweight or stunted. The two regions that account for the bulk of the deficit are South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.  If current trends continue, the Millennium Development Goals target of halving the proportion of underweight children will be missed by 30 million children, largely because of slow progress in Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
