  2. Social Studies:
    1. It gave them all of their money because they weren't selling or trading anything else besides what they were shipping other places. They would sometimes get money and sometimes receive goods that were sold for profit.
    2. William Penn was a Quaker who founded the colony of William Penn. Roger Williams was a protestant who believed in religious freedom and that the Church shouldn't be connected to the government he found providence, which is now part of Rhode Island. They both faced different challenges from people who didn't like their beliefs.
    3. It caused people to put aside their religious differences and accept others, which now is part of the basis of our country.
    4.
    Massachusetts: Puritans
    Maryland: There was religous freedom there.
    Pennsylvania: Quakers (part used to be Puritan, but they split into Delaware)
    5. They weren't true democracies because the people didn't vote for King George lll to lead their colonies.

  3. Social Studies:
    1. To trade, and have things that they didn't have, to help them. Some foods, and resources were traded for different ones to have. Also, to get large quantities of something, because they couldn't carry it.
    2. Rodger Williams left Massachusetts because of his beliefs, but then he founded the Rhode Island colony, and the charter stated you could not be punished for differences in opinion about religion. William Penn was a man who was given land by the king, and had land along the Delaware river. He founded the Pennsylvania colony, where all people of different religions could live together.
    3. The First Great Awakening was very helpful for the people, because preachers would give emotional speeches about changing everything, and gave people a new perspective on things. Then, the new lights formed, and people started to want to change things. New religions formed, but the Puritans didn't agree for the most part of these ideas. George Whitefield was a very emotional preacher, and he had a big impact on the crowds.
    4. The quakers, were people who were easy going, and welcomed everyone with open arms. In Maryland, many non Catholics lived there to live in peace, and Catholics who were persecuted in England. They had a law of religious freedom to Christians. In Massachusetts, Puritans lived there, who were intolerant, and practice their religion freely. Only church members could vote, and minsters had lots of power.
    5. Because only certain people could vote, and the government wasn't run by the people, so it wasn't a true democracy.
    Informational Book:
    1. The Life Of A Capybara
    2. I think that my intro. is coming along good, and I think I just need to do more drafts, and see which one is the best.
    3. Having it be interesting throughout the whole book. Its hard to have a book be steady the whole way out, but also have a grabber intro., and a closing conclusion.
    Boys vs. Girls Last Contest:
    1. I will improve by having even more fun, and having even more energy. Also, working as a team in the beginning of the process.
    2. I am looking forward to having more competition, and getting pumped up, and doing a performance. Its gonna be a fun process, and I can't wait to see what we come up with, and what they come up with.
