I recently came across a notebook written by yours truly when I was in the sixth grade at Pierson Elementary School in Flint, Michigan. This was prior to the high levels of lead in the water; therefore, I cannot attribute any of the following creatively written excerpts of my youthful knowledge of science and scientific-like stuff to poisoned water. Evidently I have always had a way with words. Enjoy the following topics and excerpts:
TOPIC: The Human Body. Partial excerpt from Linda’s term paper.
“Your body is like a machine because you move your arms and your legs and everything.”
TOPIC: What is digestion? Partial excerpt from Linda’s term paper.
“The food is chewed.”
TOPIC: The Human Eye. Partial excerpt from Linda’s term paper.
“Muscles in the eye help you to move your eyes.”
TOPIC: First Aid for Drowning. Partial excerpt from Linda’s term paper (and, my personal favorite).
“A drowned person usually looks dead.”
This kid obviously had a future in the world of words. It’s okay if you want to laugh; however, I got an A- on the notebook.
