I in trouble—my science project is due and I am not ready!

I am in trouble big time!  Remember that science project assignment?  I kept putting it off and now it is due this Friday.  My teacher passed out the schedule of presentations to the class today and I am scheduled to present my science project to the class this coming Friday right after lunch.   I don’t even have a project and I am expected to make a presentation on something I know nothing about!  On top of this, Ms. Adams announced that the two days of tests would be next week.

I need admit to Andy that I blew it big time and ask him for his advice.  He always finds solutions to challenging situations.  Maybe by being honest about my failure he can help be know what to say or what to do.  How I wish this whole week would disappear. I am so nervous about the presentation due on Friday that I cannot even think about tests next week.

I have two days of tests coming up!

Well, Ms. Adams, the student teacher is helping prepare us for year-end tests.  She is trying to be helpful but I wonder.   Today she explained that the testing is required by our school district.  The testing was not going to be just a quick quiz.  The test was going to actually take two full days and will includes things that we have learned in areas of history, science, math, and social studies.  I think I am in trouble. Can you imagine that?   This really disturbs me!

I cannot imagine answering questions, writing, and solving problems for two whole days.  Who in the world came up with this idea anyway?   Ms. Adams explained that the school want to know if we are learning how to think and solve problems so that we are able to teach and lead others.  I just a kid. I am not ready to teach or lead anything!!  I must talk to Andy about this

You should have seen the bugs and insects I saw at the Science Museum!

The highlight of my week last week was the visit to the Science Museum.  What a place!  They had everything you can imagine there.  Science is really cool.   I am learning that learning is fun when you put your mind to it.   I went to one room full of bugs and millions of insects. I am sure glad I did not being Andy along—because everything I way was dead and mounted for display.  Andy would not have like that!   What amazed me was how many living things there are that are even smaller than Andy—and I thought he was little (but wise).

There is so much to see and do at the Museum.  I am going to ask Dad to take my brother and me there for a whole day this summer.  We all could learn some valuable information.  I especially what to visit the space exhibit and see a moon rock.  Maybe I will take Andy then, but will not take him to that insect room!


Big trip to the Science Museum!

This week my whole class is going on a field trip to the Science Museum.  My teacher feels it will help is see how science helps us in everyday life.  Sounds good to me.  I’ve been wanting to get away from school for a day anyway.   We are going to go by bus and it will take almost an hour to get there.  I hear this is a big place with all kinds of wonderful things to see and do.   Learning this way really sounds like fun to me.

Oh, my teacher reminded us that our science project was due in three weeks.   I have not done much thinking about this. Frankly I was trying to forget it!   Maybe this field trip will give me some ideas.  I bet Andy would like to go to the Science Museum.  Wonder if I could bring him along and keep him out of site so the kids that don’t like insects don’t harm him.  It would be fun to have him join me.  We haven’t had a fun-filled adventure in a few weeks….

Andy really likes school—his attitude is different than mine!

My teacher reminded us of the science project this morning.  She never gives up loading the work on us!   It is even difficult to enjoy recess with all the work I have coming at me.

Andy came over for a visit last night before I went to bed.  He absolutely loves school!   He says learning is a great adventure in life.   Every test he takes he get top marks.   He believes learning leads to having insight and wisdom to make good decisions in life.   I am beginning to think that my attitude about school has a lot to do with how I learn in school.  Maybe if I see how learning is helping me I will be more eager to learn.   Andy’s insights always amaze me.
