How The Olympic Games Started

The first Olympic games started in 776 AD in the prestigious coliseum with over 40,000 people.
The reason the Olympics started was because they thought the games pleased the gods, like Zeus. Only men were allowed to be involved with the Olympics. Some of the games the men played were discus, wrestling, and javelin. In later years, the Olympics ended in 394 AD because people began playing it only for the money. Strongly, the games started again and that’s how the Olympics are today. Throughout the years, the Olympics have remained the same as long ago, but with more fancy adjustments.

Egypt’s 2 Most Famous Things

Anthony Haley The Sphinx and the Pyramids are two things that made Egypt famous. Long ago, there were towering pyramids in Egypt, which were over 450 ft tall. They were super strong and one block was as heavy as 2 tons. We don’t know how they moved them around but the pyramids were a great work of art. Amazingly, they were one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.They were used for all the pharaohs’ tombs. They had money and treasure in the pyramids. Can you imagine how radiant, gold and ruby red they were? The people must have yelled, “How beautiful they are.” They wrote curses on the walls and inside were trap doors, hidden pathways and a bunch of cool treasure . That is only a part of the pyramid’s story. There is much more to learn about the pyramids. Also in ancient cultures, people created myths about a creature named the Sphinx. It had the head of a man and a firm body like a lion. The Egyptians believed that it was a symbol of honor. The most famous sphinx is still sanding in Giza today. It is longer than 200 ft and is 60 feet tall. The Great Sphinx was as solid as a rock. It must have been baffling to see them carefully build the colossal work of art out of stone. Think of how many people it took to build the Sphinx. Sadly, the Great Sphinx has been eroded by wind, sand and rain. The sand has piled up around the Sphinx and it has been dug out over 3 times.This is only one of many sphinxes in Egypt. These two things, the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx were very famous and still stand today. 10:47 am 11/5/2012

MAGIC TREE HOUSE # 17 tonight on the titanic

There names were Jack and Annie. The book went like this, Annie woke Jack up because Annie heard the rain saying,”come now, come now.”
Then Jack listened. It did sound a lot like that. They put on their rain poncho and went to the tree house. Now the tree house was very magic and it had a lot of books in it. If you looked in a picture, say from the 1950′s, the tree house will spin around and take them there. They went to the tree house and they saw a dog. The dog was under a spell. To break it, they needed to go somewhere. Then the dog went to a book and pulled it out. It was the story of the Titanic. The dog put it to a page and they wished they went there. The house spun around. They went on the Titanic and they walked around and found the Captain. Jack and Annie found out that they were sending Mores Code to other ships near by, saying SOS. Jack and Annie went to every cabin. They found kids in the cabin. Their parents were not with them. They rushed everybody into the life boats. There was only (15) minutes left before the ship sunk. So they had to go back to the tree house. They went to the tree house. it was not there. They heard the dog bark and they checked to see if was in the pack and he was not.

THE LOST CLUE by Mrs O.F. walton

There was a kid and his father sent for him.  His father was a wealthy person.   His son went on a train, on a train to his father.   When he arrived at his father’s, he sent a telegram back home.

 There was a guy who broke his blood vessels. He had a red face.

The caption took some keys. The keys were from a old man’s table next to his bed. This is the first time anyone but the old man went in the safe.
There was a envelope in the safe. It had money in it. There was a black sheet of paper next to the money. It was about another safe.
It was so cold that it was almost snowing. He could almost touch snow. He went in and had some hot co – co.
The next chapter. The caption went too the bank. It was so windy that it almost blew a tree over. Palm branches were everywhere.
Caption woke up the next morning. He got dressed. He set off for the morning train.
some part of the next chapter. There was a lady w
ho was very ill. That could not write. A maid had to write for her.

During my reading I was inspired to write a poem:
There was a girl that wanted a cab
She was very very mad
She looked and looked and looked and looked
She just wanted to catch a cab

There was a girl who was cleaning. dusting the hole house. clearing the table.
A maid worked and worked and worked. One day the owner gave her a weak of.
and she had a very plesent weeak.
On the made’s trip she had a blast. she swam and suntan’d .But the best thing was that she had the best hotel ever.

The years went by. It was Christmas time. And every single place he went was jam pacted.
It was his birthday. he got money and presents.But the best gift was a pocketknife from his father.

i will start again next year
