1. My persons name is Phillis Wheatley and she was famous because she was the first African American to get a petty book published . She got kidnapped when she was seven and was also the second African American to ever get a poetry book published.
2. I think it is important because most of these famous people were the people who set up the way we live today and went through trouble to give the United States citizens happy lives. If we didn't study them we wouldn't give any thanks to them.
3. I think the hardest part of it was making the how to be and finding 15 things on how to be Phillis Wheatley because I could find like 9 or 10 but those listens were really hard.
4. It made me feel smarter because I knew that I completed a whole project by myself almost. It made me feel confident going into all these other projects because I know I can do it.
The tug of war was really fun. We had a bunch of teams too. The red team were the tallest and strongest people because that represented the british army and how much stronger they were then the American colonists. The blue teams were the shortest and weakest because that represented the American colonists and they were very weak at first two.
The White team represented the french people and Spanish people because they came in to help the colonists win the war. They came in late because they had to take the boat across the ocean and that took along time so that is why they came in late.
The Blue team was offered a prize because they got independence which is like a big prize. I think the main part of the metaphor Mr. Solarz was trying to teach us that the 20 seconds we were doing the tug of war represents the 8 years that the two sides were in war. I felt like I learned more about how the war went down and why the british ended up losing.
The one student ( Tucker ) was not offered a prize because he represented a slave and slaves were not allowed to have much rights. The White team cheered for the blue team because they were against Great Britian. Part of the red team joined late because they also needed to cross the ocean so it took some time to get there like maybe a couple years.
The blue team only had to prevent the blue team because it was there land that they were fighting to keep there land and get independence.
