Why do people pollute the world and how can we stop it?
By: Grace
Pollution is a problem that effects life on earth. Pollution is caused by many thing like smoking driving cars and factory smoke. Most times people want to stop pollution but never get around to it. Pollution is affecting animals and humans. There are associations that help stop loss of endangered animals but when you think about it pollution is one of the reasons there are endangered animals. 
                                                    OIL POLLUTION
 When you look in rivers and little puddles you sometimes see oil and pollutes the water, most times oil is found in parking lot puddles. Most people think it looks cool and don’t get me wrong to me it looks cool but it is not good. It is car oil and also pollution.
                                                      CAR POLLUTION
When you drive a car the steam from the engine is polluting the air, the same air we breathe in. If you think thing might be okay now but in the future thing will get worse. But in the future it will be toxic. Some ways we can stop car pollution is if we’re going to school take a different way. By different way I mean transportation like for instance take a bike or skate board and maybe even walk. We can stop car pollution by also car pooling
People smoke because it is addictive and since it is addictive you can’t stop. Most people try to impress someone by smoking I know a lot of people who smoke and I try to convince them to stop and they try. Like my dad he is constantly trying but can’t. It is too hard.

                                                        Ways we can stop it
 We can try to make a change back at my old school we made posters and posted them up in the hall ways we got into pairs of boy And girl and made the posters. We can also make a change by walking riding a bike a scooter or riding a skate board. I would like to try the posters some time but it depends.
                          There are many ways we can stop pollution let’s see what we can do!

 How Were Volcanoes Created? Matthew H, and Braydon, James

The volcanoes in Hawai’i they are created from about 95% magma and 5% volcanic ash. Other volcanoes are 50% magma and 50% volcanic ash. Most volcanoes are created by the movement of tectonic plates. Some volcanoes can be created by magma being pushed up through a mountain. When magma dries it turns into a type of rock so over time the volcanoes can get bigger. Volcanoes can be created by the ground being pushed up by the magma and then when the magma dries it seals the ground together.

Why Do We Need To Go To School? By: James.

There are many reason why we need to go to school. Here are some of them:
1. Kids need to go to school because of house construction, gas problems, or power outages.
2. Kids need to go to school because if they want a job when they grow up. They’ll need to learn.
3. Kids need to go to school because of all the times they just play video games and just talk about video games so they can learn everything is not about video games.
4. Kids need to go to school because of their behaviour and they need to learn about treating people the way you want to be treated.
That’s 4 of them. There are still tons of reasons why out there. But, if you don’t like school, here’s some reasons why you might not like school.
1. You keep getting bullied by a bully everyday every recess (or not every day and every recess) and the bully keeps you from getting to the teacher.
2. A kid you don’t like keeps following you around a lot and you keep telling him to stop but he won’t and you try telling the teacher but he begs and pleads to tell you not to tell the teacher.
3. All the work you have to do when you get to a higher grade and so much homework that you really want time to play with your brothers and friends.
4. You just might not get used to your teacher when you’re doing your work.
5. The lack of sleep you will need for a school day. Trust me. I have to sleep at 9:30pm every night. If you don’t get enough sleep, you have a 75% chance of being grumpy and sleepy for the day.
6. When your being a big bully to someone most of the time. You get told on when you bully and get in lots of trouble you want to leave school forever.
That’s all 6 reason why you might not like school.
The main reason the schools were built was for kids to come learn and have fun. Of course. Kids don’t want to go outside on cold days. They rather stay inside than stay out in the cold.
Keep calm and get lots of sleep!
