Transcript: My first idea was Pie in the Face because last year 2 7th grade boys had this event and they succeed and they fundraised the money for their need also for Genius Hour. I think this idea might work for me too. Our celebration-of-learning is something we need to remember. So each year we try to make it better or if the past was good, then make it like it. I want to take lead in this project and I'm a kid and I know what the students want or expect. I also want or expect those things so would understand their point of views. Last year, I heard people say "This graduation could be better." and honestly, it could. The graduation from 2 years was nice and I intend to do the same. ??? Ideas For a graduation we need a lot of things to do. This year I'm just making a fundraiser so we can make some money to buy decorations, food, and rent a place. I need to find a time, make posters, and inform everybody so they can come and participate. Inspiration Procedure Genius Hour Presentation What's the point? Our 8th grade graduation is something can think back on to remember our journeys through out middle school. add logo here
Transcript: Taillte Theory By Colin Reilly Back? Good. Was Abbot just saying that to get under the heroes' skin? I don't think so. Perhaps the fairies bargained with the humans for their safety underground with the demons. Or maybe the fairies ran underground and sealed it, leaving the demons behind. Out of the 2, the first one seems more likely, because if the fairies Artemis Fowl and the Last Guardian. Just what does that mean? Okay, so I assume you're back from reading all 8 books. Now if you really have, you'll know what Taillte is. If you don't, here it is. Taillte was the last battle between the fairies and humans, in which most fairies retreated to the underground and the demons lifted Hybras out of time. It was also when Danu created the Armageddon lock, but that's been dealt with. And that's it. That's all we know. In book 5 The Lost Colony, Abbot mentions that everyone betrayed the demons at Taillte. This is the 8th book in the Artemis Fowl series. Now, if you haven't read all the books in said series, go and read them now. I'll wait. Seriously. Even if you don't want to. They're that good. I don't want to spoil it.

Transcript: This is something that not many people have. Some players have this in the NFL but didn't get it given to them. They were born with it. Some of these players want to stand out and be the best. Their determination takes them a very long way in their career and even before it. That is how they got to be where they are now. How did the players in the NFL get to where they are now? Genius Hour Presentation By: Jack Nies These athletes train almost every day to stay fit and healthy. Most of the teams in the NFL have to do long workouts many days in the week. Each player can do what it wants to do, but most want to stand out and actually be someone in the NFL. Practice Practice after practice after practice. All teams in the NFL have to practice 5 to 6 days a week. They get barely any break. Even on one of the days of the week they have a game after all those practices. It is nonstop practicing, but that is what makes them so good. Determination Training Hard Work These players had to go through so much to get where they are now. They put in the time and effort to get there. They worked out and put through so much. It was very tough to do, but they fought through the pain. Some players had great talent, but instead of putting in that little time each day, it cost hem. There is always someone out there doing something to get better and that is what you have to do if you want to be playing in the NFL.
