Well, today we are filming a news show for the Boston Massacre. The first people were the news anchors; Nina and Taressa .Toward the end Nina started of get a funny face trying not to laugh but pulled through. Then the people who were the soldiers for the British got up and got taped. Oh! I have to go up now hold on a second….. Okay I’m back now the “Sons of Liberty” are going. They have to wear paper bags on their head so that their identity for the part is kept. Oh no! The green screen just fell!!

Okay they got it fixed. While I’m waiting the soldiers tried to say they got attacked by flying monkeys but Mr. Langhorst made them change it. Well the Sons of Liberty finished and it was good. It would be better for me if I could wear a bag on my head for this. Now the Boston citizens are going. They did really well. Nobody seemed to forget their lines. Now people who are the king and parliament are going. Let’s see how they do. Here they go…. Wow if it was for real it would be harsh and just get the colonists more mad. Now it’s the people who are the interviewer and Paul Revere. Take 2. Take 3. There that was good. Now we have to go outside so I have to go outside. It will be the Boston Massacre live. Well, we all went outside and they did the Boston Massacre. It was pretty funny. Everybody was screaming but laughing while screaming.

Now we’re watching this documentary on the battle of Lexington and Concord. The people on the documentary reenact history. It’s kind of interesting but I’m not really a big history fan. They seem to do it exactly like it actually happened. Well I’m going to stop typing because this is getting too long. Bye.

Today in social studies we are getting ready to start taping our video of a new cast from the Boston massacre that we might have thought may have happened back then even though they didn’t have a news program. We also think that it will be fun well that’s what I think because things having to do with video taping is fun because we get to record things with a camera and having to act like actors and actress’ and having to be dramatic. Well we also in class got our student e-mails that will be used for finding out our homework and having conversations with our teachers about things we may have for the class or the homework that we have. Plus it will help students to remember their homework and stuff like that.

On the agenda board it says today we are going to check our 1.3 notes which are on the “Boston Tea Party” and work on our Boston Massacre Project if we have time. But first we have to vote for Student Council. We have to vote for 5 of the 7 candidates for our team. Now on to the notes the British would have made a lot of money off of my family with the tea tax because we love tea. I wonder after the Boston Tea Party if the Boston harbor looked and tasted like tea. By the way I’m writing this while in class so this is all in present text. Now we are working on our scripts I’m an anchor! Okay got to go.

  • Mr. Langhorst's Note - It was hat day today as a fundraiser - students who donated a dollar for Red Ribbon Week activities were able to wear a hat in school. I wore my colonial trifold hat from Colonial Williamsburg.
