Nice work + First Fireworks Upload

Great job writing your first posts!

Now you have two things to do.

  1. Leave a comment for 2 people (I’ll tell you who). Remember, be respectful, paraphrase, give your opinion.
  2. Write a post about your Fireworks Test, and upload it so we can see it! You can only do this if you include the URL where you found the “Internet” portion of your test.
  3. ** Make sure your URLs are on your picture or in your post.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone’s posts in the next few days.

You may also have heard that the economy is having problems. Can you comment please on what you have heard in the news, or from your family, or from school what you know about the problems the United States is facing with the economy.
