Hello! Today mrs.Fish wanted me to: Write a final draft of your essay on the following topic: What is the best birthday present you ever received?

Here it is:

The best birthday present i’ve ever received would be my little cousin Jacques. Jacques was born April the 27th 2017 (which was the same year I broke my leg). Jacques birthday is three days before mine and I was born on the 30th of April 2008. Jacques is very funny at times like on his first birthday he came over for a party at our house me him and my dad each got a seperate cake (me and my dad share the same birthday). Jacques cake was a chocolate cake with blue icing, dad’s was a chocolate cake with caramel in the middle, and mine was an ice cream cake. When Jacques blough out his candles he started eating the cake right away with his hands and of course got some on his face and hair. Then when he finished eating his cake he looked like a Smurf!

Now Jacques is really in the farm things like tractors and farm animals. Him and the rest of his family just moved in last year to the new home they built in the bush it’s really cool! my uncle has a lawn tractor but since they don’t have lawn yet they don’t have much to do with yet so one day my uncle thought Jacques how to drive the lawn tractor and now he can drive it by himself! And 5 or six visits before the house was built during the winter he came over and he was able to drive the M110X by himself! and he was only 2 years old back then! And the M110X is a pretty big tractor for a little guy like him!

That’s it!

The End.

RPC History 4 Lesson 100


Hello! Today Mr.Livingston wanted me to do this: Summarize each of the inventions you studied this week and how they impacted history. Also, explain the most interesting thing you learned this week, and why.

The three inventions and one inventor I learned about where: The Compound Microscope, William Gilbert, The Newspaper, and the Telescope.

The Compound Microscope. Sometime about the year 1590, two Dutch spectacle makers, Zaccharias Janssen and his father Hans started experimenting with these lenses. They put several lenses in a tube and made a very important discovery. … They had just invented the compound microscope (which is a microscope that uses two or more lenses).

William Gilbert. William Gilbert (1544-1603) was an English scientist and physician who is credited by many as the “father of electricity and magnetism”. Born on May 24, 1544 into an affluent family in Colchester, Essex, Gilbert attended Cambridge University where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in 1561.

The Newspaper. Newspapers Worldwide. One of the earliest publications that could be described as a daily newspaper appeared in Rome around 69 B.C. It was a primitive news sheet called Acta Diurna (acts of the day) and described the activities of the Roman Senate. Another early newspaper appeared in the Germanic states of the 1500s.

The Telescope.

The telescope was first patented in 1608 Dutch eyeglass maker Hans Lippershey (or Lipperhey) is widely credited as the first person to patent a telescope in 1608. His device, called a kijker (“looker”), was, according to Hans, able to magnify an image up to three times.

That’s it!

RPC History 4 Lesson 95


Hello! This Mr.Livinston assigned me to do this: Summarize each of the inventions you studied this week and how they impacted history. Also, explain the most interesting thing you learned this week, and why .

  1. The Mercator Projection Map. The Mercator projection was originally developed in 1569 by the Flemish cartographer Gerardus Mercator. At this time, many of Europe’s top cartographers and explorers used elliptical projections derived from Ptolemy’s latitude and longitude grid.
  2. Gerardus Mercator. Gerardus Mercator, original name Gerard De Cremer, or Kremer?, (born March 5, 1512, Rupelmonde, Flanders [now in Belgium]—died December 2, 1594, Duisburg, Duchy of Cleve [Germany]), Flemish cartographer whose most important innovation was a map, embodying what was later known as the Mercator projection.
  3. Tycho Brahe. Tycho Brahe, (born December 14, 1546, Knudstrup, Scania, Denmark—died October 24, 1601, Prague), Danish astronomer whose work in developing astronomical instruments and in measuring and fixing the positions of stars paved the way for future discoveries.
  4. The Backstaff. Backstaff is the name given to any instrument that measures the altitude of the sun by the projection of a shadow. Invented by John Davis in the 16th century, it became a useful tool for navigators at sea. The backstaff was a navigational tool that measured altitude using the sun.

My favorite was probably Gerardus Mercator because his name sound very familiar to my pepere’s name (pepere is grandpa in french). My pepere’s name is Gerard but the adults call him Jerry. My pepere is very funny and always makes jokes. Now pepere and me go to Sudbury (where the big Nickel is) and deliver the Click fork orders for my mom and we always have tons of fun. My mom business is an online farmers market that is basted for north-east of ontario. It’s technically our farms side business that lets us add an S to Dalew FarmS.

That’s it!

Hello! This week in science I did some painting I painted a fall trees landscape and a Spruce tree but I’m not that good at painting as much as I am sketching but oh well atleast I did it. I learned about many famous drawings my favorite was the corn harvesting picture because I thought it was cool to see how they used to harvest corn in Europe. I really like the sketching part of science so far because it’s less complicated and I enjoy it more. Here is my most recent drawing. You will be able to find most of my sketches on Jonathan very cool art website for RPC students and plenty of different students post their drawings on there. Here is the link. https://essays533132268.wordpress.com/

Hello! Here is my essay from Mr.Livingston: Summarize each of the inventions you studied this week and how they impacted history. Also, explain the most interesting thing you learned this week, and why.

The four inventors and inventions I learned about this week are: The Heliocentric Theory in lesson 86,
in Lesson 87 I learned about Nicolaus Copernicus,
in Lesson 88I learned about the great Andreas Vesalius,
and in Lesson 89 I probably learned about one of the greatest inventions of all time the pencil.

The Heliocentric Theory. In 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus detailed his radical theory of the Universe in which the Earth, along with the other planets, rotated around the Sun. … Galileo discovered evidence to support Copernicus’ heliocentric theory when he observed four moons in orbit around Jupiter.

Nicolaus Copernicus. Polish astronomer Copernicus is born. On February 19, 1473, Nicolaus Copernicus is born in Torun, a city in north-central Poland on the Vistula River. The father of modern astronomy, he was the first modern European scientist to propose that Earth and other planets revolve around the sun.

Andreas Vesalius. Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564) Andreas Vesalius was born on 31 December 1514 in Brussels, Belgium, then part of the Holy Roman Empire. He came from a family of physicians and both his father and grandfather had served the holy Roman emperor.

The Pencil. The modern pencil was invented in 1795 by Nicholas-Jacques Conte, a scientist serving in the army of Napoleon Bonaparte. The magic material that was so appropriate for the purpose was the form of pure carbon that we call graphite.

That’s it hope you enjoyed!

Hello! Here is my assignment from Mr.Livingston: Summarize each of the inventions and inventors you studied this week and how they impacted history. Also, explain the most interesting thing you learned this week, and why.

I learned about the Mariner’s Astrolabe, The Double Entry Bookkeeping, Luca Pacioli, and Leonardo Da Vinci.

The Mariner’s Astrolabe. The mariner’s astrolabe was an navigation tool used for taking the altitude of the sun or stars. Its history dates as far back as the Ancient Period and into Medieval Period. Its name means “to take a star” or “star taker.” The mariner’s astrolabe was the preferred instrument for more than 200 years.

Double Entry Bookkeeping. Double entry bookkeeping system first invented in Italy by a church father who’s named Luca Bartolomes Pacioli. He was the mathematician and contemporary of Leonardo Da Vinci. He wrote a book which name was “Summa de Arithmetica, geometry, proportions et proportionalità”. This book called Accounting bible.

Luca Pacioli. Fra Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli (sometimes Paccioli or Paciolo; c. 1447 – 19 June 1517) was an Italian mathematician, Franciscan friar, collaborator with Leonardo da Vinci, and an early contributor to the field now known as accounting.

Leonardo Da Vinci this inventor was my favorite out of the four inventions I learned about this week because I like his name and he has a nice goatee. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was born in Anchiano, Tuscany (now Italy), close to the town of Vinci that provided the surname we associate with him today. In his own time he was known just as Leonardo or as “Il Florentine,” since he lived near Florence and was famed as an artist, inventor and thinker.

And that’s it for this essay!

Hello! This week in science I learned how to draw many hard things I also learned that there are many different ways to draw.

I also watch these drawing tutorials that where very interesting There was many hard things to draw in it like in lesson 54 I had to draw a 3D landscape here it is:

The drawing has a barn way in the background. I also have a Kenworth transport hauling food from the local beef form to go to the market. Most of the fields are plowed. But the front field is a hay field. There are only deciduous trees left in the drawing because the lumberJacks cut down all the pines and Spruce trees.

That’s it!

RPC ENG L40 (Final Draft)


Hello! Here is my assignment from Mrs.Fish What is something that you were scared to try, but you tried it anyway and were glad that you did?

Once on one of my vacations in Ottawa’s Calypso water park and I wanted to go on the biggest slide with my uncle and mom. But then the life guard said less heavy has to go in the front of the tube and so I did it and it was very fun! But what I was really scared of was losing another goat. Because my pet goat Ernest (2017-2018) had died when we had left to go on vacation once during the winter. But I’m glad I did go! Because there was this congo water roller coaster where you would sit in a tube and the water would push you in a course it was very fun! One more thing I was scared to try was the cold toilet you would slid into a hole that looked like a toilet and then you would go into the hole then into some cold water. But the reason I was scared of that slide was because they said cover your next just in case you hurt yourself going down the hole because the guy before me pack flipped into the hole and almost hit his head against the edge of the hole. But I’m glad I tried all of those things because I had fun and got to see my little cousin when he was a baby!

And that’s it hope you enjoyed!

Hello! This week in science I learned some basic sketching stuff like shading and accuracy. I watched five videos on that subject then I also learned about making 3d objects like a cup or a house. I also learned how drawing can be expensive and you need all of these things that can be expensive like a modeling clay eraser is a little weird to me. There is even plastic erasers how do they even work? There also all of these different tools that don’t make sense to me drawing is way more complicated than I remember it being That’s my summary for this lesson.

RPC History 4 Lesson 80


Hello! Here is my assignment from Mr.Livingston Summarize each of the inventions you studied this week and how they impacted history. Also, explain the most interesting thing you learned this week, and why.

The Four inventions I learned about where Chess, The Erebus, The Printing Press, and the Mainspring.

Chess. The history of chess goes back almost 1500 years. The game originated in northern India in the 6th century AD and spread to Persia. When the Arabs conquered Persia, chess was taken up by the Muslim world and subsequently, through the Moorish conquest of Spain, spread to Southern Europe.

The Erebus. HMS Erebus was built by the Royal Navy in Pembroke Dockyard, Wales in 1826. When her career as a bomb vessel came to an end, Terror became a ship of exploration. She ventured north to the Arctic in 1836, under the command of George Back, where she suffered heavy ice damage in the aptly-named Frozen Strait.

The Printing Press. Goldsmith and inventor Johannes Gutenberg was a political exile from Mainz, Germany when he began experimenting with printing in Strasbourg, France in 1440. He returned to Mainz several years later and by 1450, had a printing machine perfected and ready to use commercially: The Gutenberg press.

The Mainspring. Mainsprings appeared in the first spring-powered clocks, in 15th-century Europe. It replaced the weight hanging from a cord wrapped around a pulley, which was the power source used in all previous mechanical clocks. Around 1400 coiled springs began to be used in locks, and many early clockmakers were also locksmiths.
