The Game of Life

Checkered Game of Life board; 1860, Milton Bradley  The Game of Life was first invented in the 1860. It was called The Checkered Game of Life was what it was called when it was first invented. Milton Bradley was the one who invented the first Game of Life. The overall design of the game was a checkerboard. It had alternating red and white squares in an eight by eight grid. The red squares were “safe” squares and nothing happened to you when you arrived on them. The white squares , however, had words on them. The words could mean positive or negative. They meant you had to do what it said. They variate from honesty and truth to crime and ruin. With the factors that the board was checkered and you would go through highs and lows of life, He decided on the title. It was The Checkered Game of Life.

My Country’s Capital

I live in the U.S.A. The capital of the U.S.A. is Washington D.C. Washington D.C. is in the district of Columbia. The three places I would recommend are the Pentagon, White House, and the Washington Monument.

The three places I would recommend would start with the pentagon. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense. It is located in Arlington County, Virginia. The pentagon is a  symbol of the U.S. military. The pentagon is also referred to the Department of defense. You can tour the Pentagon and here is a website you can look at if you want to tour it.https://pentagontours.osd.mil/

The second place I would recommend would be the White House. The White house is where the president lives. Even our first president, George Washington, lived the the same area in a different white house. I know you cannot tour it , but you can get to places in Washington D.C. where you can see it.

The third place would be the Washington Monument. The Washington Monument in the national Mall in Washing d.c. to commemorate George Washington (the first U.S.A. president and he led our troops in the the Continental Army.

The first picture below is the Washington Monument, the second is the White house and the third is the pentagon.

Commenting (week 2 activity 1)

When commenting, you need to remember a few things to keep the topic up and ideas flowing through the air. You need to remember

1: Compliment the writer- complimenting the righter well make the writer feel good about what they posted or wrote.

2: Add additional information- adding information will start a spark for the writer’s new ideas to post or write something new.

3: Make a connection with the writer- making a connection will show the writer how you and him/her are alike.

4: End with a question- when you end with a question, you might start another idea for someone else’s comment that they want to post.

5: Did you correct your grammar and spelling- correcting grammar and spelling will show the original writer that you are worth their time and space on their blog. I will also show that you are good at school.

These are very important when writing a comment. They may start a conversation and show how alike or different. If you start a conversation in another country, you may learn more about their country.

Tell me what YOU like (week 2 activity 2)

Everyone who visits my blog should feel free to leave a comment. Sometimes I don’t know how to word a comment I want to put on someone else’s blog so I don’t. I think everyone should feel free to post a comment about whatever they desire. For instance, If you like sports, maybe you could tell me about that. You could also tell me about a song you like to listen to. If you can’t think of a topic to comment on, depending on the conversation, you could start a new on. Either on your blog or on the comment section of another.  Some questions you may ask might include, How was your day yesterday, or what is your favorite thing to do in your free time. These are just a couple of examples. But whatever you do make sure it is appropriate at the time and place, and don’t post something you wouldn’t want the whole world to know. Once it is out there, you cannot take it back. So, go and enjoy commenting. There are some really neat people out there, and one of them might like the same things you do.
