    1. It means a prediction.
    2. The prophecy is that the Powhatan will fight against the tribe that hunts and fishes (settlers) and they will win the first 2 battles, but after the 3 there tribe will be know more. I think that they will not be defeated, but that they will unite and become friends. I believe this because Jamestown is where the first Thanksgiving was held.
    3. I think that it will because there was actual battles and what a old chief would think of his tribe being "destroyed" could be uniting with the settlers.
    4. Nope. I prefer to keep my thoughts in my mind.
    5. I don't really have an item that is very important to me, but if my dog counts then Honey. She is always there for me and we are both so alike in many ways.
    Holiday Party:
    1. I'm part of the stations group.
    2. I will work hard and offer creative ideas to my teammates.
    3. I'm looking forward to designing a station!!!!

  2. 1. A prediction

    2. The prophecy was something about a war and the tribe will be gone at the end.

    3. No. The prophecy seemed to end terrible and I usually books don't end like that. Also I've read books that have prophecy's in them and they turn out somewhat like the prediction but they seem to change.

    4.Yes. But it is on a computer.

    5.My turtle necklace that my dad got for me is very personal. It is personal because my dad got it for me and he is a very important person in my life but also that i feel the turtle is the closest animal that fits my personality.


    1.I am in the slide show group.

    2.I will try my best to work on it while I am in Mexico so my partner does not have to have to do all the work.

    3.Deciding the order of the photo's and telling 'the story'.

    3. Can't remember

    5. Yes, a personal item that is important to me and is Best friend/ Favorite stuffed animal. He is important because he has been around for a longer time than I was. He is one day older than me.
    5a. The locket was important because his mum just pasted away, and that was the only memory that he had of her left .

    1. A prophecy is a prediction that everyone thinks will happen.
    2. The prophecy is the Powhatan tribe will fight and become stronger but will lose the kingdom and some people.
    3. I think the prophecy will not be accurate because if the tribe becomes stronger, then how do they lose the kingom and some people?
    4. I have a diary but I don't actually write my thoughts in it I just write what happens and I haven't done so since last year!
    5. If this counts like Gigi's, I used to have a rabbit named Marbles that passed away while we were all in third grade. Also I have this stuffed animal owl that I got just on the 8th that means a lot to me because it was from my cousin who inspires me.

    1. I am in the slideshow group.
    2. I will work hard when Sarah goes to Mexico at the end of the week.
    3. I am looking foreward to putting a bit of humor in the slideshow because that is what gets parents' boredom out of them.

    3. no because you can't predict something that will happen in 3,000 years, you could say someone will breath in 3,000 years but saying in 3,000 we will fly up all the way past more planets.
    4. No but if you count in your head than yes
    5. A table in my parents room that's over 100 years old passed down to us

    1. The deffenition of a prophecy is... A prediction.
    2. My first thought on the prophecy was that the locket was his sisters, or his moms. It turns out that I was right and it was the mom!

    1. A prophecy, is a prediction you make.
    2. The prophecy in the story is that the Powhatan tribe will fight against the native americans, and they will mostly win, but some people will die, and some things will be stolen.
    3. I think it will not be accurate, because the fight might be later, and the Native Americans could win.
    4. I do, but I don't really use it a lot, I usually keep my thoughts up in my mind.
    5. My color me mine thing I made because it is of my cat, and she died very recently, so it reminds me of her. Her name was Riki.

    1. A prophecy is something that everybody predicts. Technically, it is a prediction for the future.
    2. The prophecy in the story is the Powhatan will try to take over the N.A. and will try to kill them but will fail. I think that lots of people will be killed and lots of items will be stolen
    3. I think there will be lots of battles but I think that there will be a surprising moment change in the story.
    4. Like Double G, I keep my thoughts in my mind and to myself.
    5. Something that is really personal to me is my collection of books. I like to look back at my previous books and be able to glance at them and compare my books now and the books I've previously read.
