|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?||
I was playing outside over the weekend and I was trying throw a football from way far away into my basketball hoop. One of my tries I threw and I knew it wouldn’t go in when it hit the ground and there was a squirrel right next to it and when it hit the ground right next to it, it instantaneously scampered up a tree in a flash. It was so funny because it literally thought somebody was about to shoot himself. It sounded like a bomb because it was so high and its reaction was historical. I was laughing so much. I felt felt bad for the squirrel but I couldn’t hold back the laughter.
All of the metaphors:
To start out Mr. Solarz put us in a line from tallest to shortest. All the tall people went to the red team and the short people went to the blue team, and the people in the middle went to the white team. The red team I thought was the British because of n history the British were stronger and more experienced. Only four of the white team started with the rope as everyone else on white stood far away from the rope. All the red got to go on the rope and the white ot to join them in the middle of the "war." But the rest of the white joined in the middle of the war as well. The British won because they had way more soldiers than the continental army, and I was one of the starting four for the continental army.

To The Barzili Lew,
I am Peter Salem, and I’m from Framingham Massachusetts and was born in 1750 . I was born a slave along with my friend Barzillai Lew, and we have black skin so only our families respects us. I never liked my child years because all I did was work. I was a soldier though for Massachusetts during the revolutionary war even though blacks were hated back then and that is not good at all.
I also fought in Concorde for the battle of Lexington and Concorde and in the battle of Bunker hill. I was never a leader or a very important person in the war, I was just a normal soldier. After all of the battle I went back to slavery a little bit more and after they released me I lived a peaceful life with not much harm.
Sincerely, Peter Salem
Mrs. Kliest and Mrs. Cerniglia wanted us to do a project where you pick a person from the American revolution and research and write a letter on him or her and his beliefs and stuff like that so it will be put up in a museum under a portrait of him or her. But my person was hard to research because he wasn't very important back then and didn't stand out in the important name of the American Revolution. So I found two websites and studied them top to bottom and understand everything about my character. Then I made the letter and chose my three artifacts for the museum also and then I was done.
