Line Plots

 When you use a line plot you sometimes use it for making a prediction of something like for example, rain. So when you are doing a prediction of rain like when was there more rain in 2013 and 2014. This is what you are going to do, you are going to get out all of the data that you got from both years in a website lets just say. You then are going to put the fractions or numbers in order and it is important to put the numbers or fractions from least to greatest because it will make more sense. It is also important that in a line plot you have to be really careful about the lines that are above the the data because on top of those lines you will put the numbers or fractions of the numbers of the data.

 You also have to be careful and accurate when you are doing a line plot because if you mess up your line plot will be really confusing and wrong. You cross the data numbers or fraction as you go putting them form least to greatest. Then after you have do all theses steps you will get your answer to your problem

Native's, Gold, Home

January 2, 1496 11:15 am

Dear friends,

Fruits and berries

 After I found land we all put the ship somewhere and. the captain went down first and, then the rest of us went down the ship. We looked around there was berry bushes, and the trees had fruit yummy fruit. Ali kissed the land so did the captain. We climbed up the trees got some of the fruits.

 We got the berries from the bushes and, the captain said to go put all the fruit and berries on the ship. So we went to put all the fruits and the berries on the ship and came back to the land. We looked and explored all around the area were the ship was because if we went to far from the ship I bet we would get lost on the land.

 Native Americans

 While we were exploring together we weren't noticing that there were people that were called Native Americans. All of a sudden the Natives jumped out of there hiding places and looked at us and we were all scared. The Natives had bows and there clothing were all made out of animal skin and some of them had paint on there faces. 

 I was wondering what it would be if you were a Native American. There came closer to us and they started talking in a different language that we did not know, but Ali did know since he is a interpreter. The crew started talking to each other and we all agreed to talk to the them. So Ali started to talk to them and they talked back to him. Ali said.

Decision Time

 "I said to them that we came here to get some of the goods like gold and more valuable stuff." So did they say they know a place were there are goods and all that. I said. Then Ali said. "They know a place were there are goods and it is at the far east and, they said if we want to trade with them, or do you guys want to leave this place if you think that we are going to die." Me and Jenny wanted to leave because we both thought that we were going to get lost or die.

  Adisa said that she wanted to trade with them because she thought that they were going to give them some good stuff. Ali said that he would want to go to go get the goods that are at the east. We argued until we all said that we were going to trade goods to the Natives. So Ali said that to them and the Native gave us hamaks, parotts, and gold nuggets. Gold nuggets were still pretty good anyways.

Trouble

Then the captain said that he wanted to go get some gold from the east and Ali said that. We would like to go to get gold from the east. The native told us were to go then we left to the east. We walked a long long long time until we got there and we looked and searched all around there until there was nothing and we all thought for a moment that we were lied by the natives. So we turned around and walked again for a long long long time.

 Going Home  

We then said to the Natives if they would like to go to our world to know how it was like living there. So we took two of then. After we were far from the land we said to them that they were going to start working. So they started to work. It has been nine weeks at sea and we were almost home while we were going home Jenny and Ali had typhus and we were of course again. 

Then we were fighting and fighting and Ali saved the day again. Than it has been days that we were at sea until. We all so something and we all thought again that it was home so we got closer and closer and we at last found home. We settled somewhere and got off the ship and I was looking for my family and I found them and hugged them all tight. So we left home and ate good at last.

I See Something

 January 1, 1496 10:59 pm

Dear mates,

A Good Day

 I was steering the wheel and it was night time and, it was time to check the food and the navigation we went to check the food. The food was okay and the navigation was okay as well. The crew was walking and doing things that they need to do. Me steering the wheel and the navigator Adisa was telling me were to go. I was really really tired of steering the wheel.

Yelling 

 It was another day and I was steering the boat. Adisa was navigating me. It has been hours that I have been  steering. "STOP!"Then I herd more yelling and more and more yelling. Me and Adisa were curious to know what was going on. So we turned around and went into the meeting room. I opened the door. I was saying. "What was happening." They were all talking at the same and the captain came in and said "What was going on!"

 Then Jenny said that. "It was because we were of course and that the ship was going the wrong way." I said that. How were we of course." Jenny said. Because we just found out that after the storm, we were going south instead of going east.  Ali the interpreter said Everybody calm down we all know that we are a long way to the east but, let's just figure out with the map and see were is east and we will be there in no time."

 Everybody agreed. So it took some minutes for Ali to find were is east. Until he found it and we were saved by Ali.

I See Something

 It has been a month since we were going east well. Ali was right that we were't a long way from east. and it has been hours that we don't have see any land. Until I see a bird that is flying in the sky we all go to the meeting room and say that we all think it is land. So we go back to work and we can't wait to see land if it is land.

 I see something I saw some berries and leaves and something started to look  then it got more huge and more huge and more huge! I thought for a moment and I start screaming out loud that I found land!

THE WORST DAY EVER IN MY LIFE!

August 29, 1495 12:12 pm

Dear friends,

At Night

 Hello I'am Aleysha the helmsman on the ship. I was at sea on the lovely ship that was called the Titanic. It has been 4 weeks scene we have been at sea. It was night time and I was sailing the boat and Adisa the navigator was navigating me to the new world where everybody wanted to go. There are riches there like gold silver and all that. Everybody was sleeping and me and Adisa were up.

We woke Jenny the ships surgeon to go look at the food supplies and when she came back she said that the food was okay but, one thing she told us was that the biscuits were still full of weevils an that they were hard like a rock. So Jenny went back to sleep and I kept sailing the ship. After some hours I heard something and Adisa herd it and the hole crew heard it we looked and looked until we so lightning.

The Storm

I said. "Everyone get ready for action!" There was a storm and we were ready for it. We stayed close to each other so we could save each other if we fall over board. The clouds started to form into a big cloud and, it started to rain and it started to rain even harder.The waves started to go up and down up and down and the waves were even stronger that they could tilt the ship and we could have died. I was steering the ship to try to get away from the storm. 

While everybody was running all over the place to try to not fall over board. I steered and steered the wheel but I could not get out of the storm. Until I saw a big rock and I thought that it was land and it wasn't land it was a big rock I was scared I did not want to move the ship anywhere. I turned the ship carefully and we got closer but I turned is with all my might and we were saved. In a few minutes the storm was over.Until. Ali the interpreter said that our mass broke. So Ali started to fix it and it took forever and at last he fixed it. So we kept on sailing.

A Ship On Fire  

When the storm was over we were fine for a few minutes until. We saw a ship. I said. "Thank Goodness we found people!" There ship was big and in Spain the ships were all small and this one was huge. I thought that that ship was sailing for Portugal, but then the ship was on fire and I could not stand this.

I did not want to do this any more. I saw a man or a woman running around like crazy  because he got on fire. We left were that ship was and we kept on sailing to the new world.

Sincerely,
Aleysha

Oh no! Weevils!

August 1, 1495 5:25 pm

Dear mates,
In Spain

 Hello I am Aleysha the helmsman. Today I was at Spain. I was checking the food and the wheel to see if it was ready to go. Everybody was ready to go. I said good-bye to my mom, daughter, and son and I hugged them all with all my might. Cause we were about to leave to the new world that Christoper Columbus found. While I walked away slowly hoping that my family was going to be safe and try not to get into trouble. I climbed on the boat and waved good-bye one last time.

On the Titanic

  I was with Jenny the ship surgeon, Ali the interpreter and, Adisa the navigator. I started the wheel and, the people faded and faded until I could not see them, anymore. I looked straight and the navigator Adisa told my to move straight and turn and all that. It was been hours that I was sailing to the new world. So I kept on going and going my arms were tired but I kept on going until.

Hungry For Fish!

 It was 8:33 and we were starving. I saw fish in the water and, everybody started screaming for fish. The captain told Ali the interpreter to get fish to eat for dinner. Jenny was saying that we have food to eat as well so we wouldn't have to waste all the time to catch fish. Everybody wanted to have fish for dinner anyway. While Ali was trying to get fish for dinner Adisa, was telling me to move to try to get close to the fish. I stopped the ship close to the fish. Ali tried to get the fish while Jenny was standing close to him so he wouldn't fall and hurt himself. If that happened Jenny would go and get him and fix him up. We took a break and sadly ate cold, salty, uncooked fish which was gross.

Weevils

While we were done eating our fish we went bake to our duty. After a couple of minutes I was still sailing while Adisa was navigating me to the new world. Jenny came running in and yelling about that the biscuits were full of weevils! We all stopped on what we were doing and, went downstairs to check it out. When we were there. I got biscuit and looked at it and it was full with hols and I opened it and, the weevils were there I threw it on the floor and I squished the weevils. So we just left them there and went bake to our work. So I Sailed the ship off to the new world.

Sincerely,
Aleysha
