Cloud Types

In this summary, I will go over the main cloud types and how they look. Cumulus Clouds are the most recognizable cloud, as the big puffy one we associate so much with clouds. Stratus Clouds are the types of clouds you see on a cloudy day, forming a big, gray, featureless line. Stratocumulus Clouds are like cumulus clouds, but spread unevenly across the sky similar to that of a stratus cloud. Altocumulus Clouds are clouds that are white or grey patches in the middle of the atmosphere. Nimbostratus Clouds are the clouds you see on rainy days, a dark gray, lumpy layer of Stratus. Altostratus Clouds are the opposite of Nimbostratus, a thin layer of Stratus that doesn’t blot out the sun, looking like some sort of fog. Cirrus Clouds are the long wispy strands you see on sunny days alongside Cumulus. Cirrocumulus Clouds are patches of clouds that look come together in line shapes. Cirrostratus Clouds are clouds similar to Altostratus, only even thinner, sometimes forming a halo around the sun. Cumulonimbus Clouds are the clouds you see in movies that involve things flying in the sky, that they fly through. These clouds are massive, acting like a Cumulus but even bigger.

What do we know about Time Travel?

Time travel is the concept of movement between certain points in time, analogous to movement between different points in space by an object or a person, typically with the use of a hypothetical device known as a time machine.

-Wikipedia, Time travel

As of now, it is unknown whether time travel actually exists, since it seems just like the work of someone’s mind for a good-selling book or high grossing movie. Time travel has been connected in the study of quantum mechanics and wormholes, both which assume, using otherworldly, alien methods, we can go back into time. As stated before, there have been many books and movies involving time travel, such as Back to the Future (1985) or The Time Machine (1895, H.G Wells).

Time travel could be possible using Einstein’s theory of relativity, a video has been linked below on the subject of relativity by Science ABC.

This explains that the faster you go to the speed of light, the more years pass by, which is similar to traveling to the future. We currently have no idea of even how to go back in time, but at least we know that it sort of exists.

My Week on a scale from 1-100 2.0

My week, using a scale of one to one hundred, it was a 44. It was an ok week, to say the least. There were a lot of things that could’ve gone better. I got to see my friends quite a few times this week.

My Weekend on a Scale from 1-100

My weekend, using a scale from 1 to 100, I give it a rating of 75. It was a good weekend, but not exactly the best. I had a lot of fun, but I could’ve had more. I at least got a break from my sister when my mom took her away on a trip in the afternoon. I also got to make a fun dinner, a beef stew and buttermilk biscuits, that was very tasty. I also played a lot of games on my Nintendo Switch like Pokemon, which was very fun.

3/10 Journal: Why is Pokemon a Fun game for People of all Ages?

I think Pokémon is a fun game for people of all ages because of the many different ways you can play Pokémon. Young people, the game’s main audience, can enjoy a fun adventure with their Pokemon friends to become the very best Pokemon trainer in the region/world, depending on the game. Older audiences can enjoy their past and get into more competitive battling, using sites such as Smogon University to help them become the very best battler, but not only in the region, but the whole world. Older people can also try to do bigger feats than a young person could do, such as completing the national Pokedex, Shiny Hunting, or the aforementioned competitive battling.

3/3 Journal: A Spooky Story in Exactly 100 Words

The dark closet held a darker secret that the eleven-year-old John didn’t know. His mother told him never to open it, since it would not be very fun. But John was curious, so he did anyway. Instantly, a figure made completely of shadow jumped out of the closet, scaring the living daylights out of John. He tried to run away, but the figure extended a tentacle and grabbed John. He struggled and resisted, but the tentacle pulled him into the figure, and he was never heard from again. His mom grieved for many days on end, and then she died.


3/4 – Rewrite

The dark closet held an even darker secret that eleven-year-old John didn’t know. His mother told him never to open it, since it would be bad. But John was curious, so he did anyway. Suddenly, a figure made completely of shadow jumped out of the closet, scaring John. He tried to run away, but the figure extended a slimy tentacle and grabbed John. He struggled and resisted, but the tentacle pulled him into the figure, and he was swallowed whole, never heard from again. His mom grieved for many days on end, and then she died from a broken heart.

2/24 Journal: Is it important for People to study History?

I think it is important for people to learn history so they can study things about people that might have been their ancestors or just history about their country, state, or province, or even the world. I like learning history in school because it teaches me about new things every single day I work on it.

Introduction to Data and Data Sets

Harmful Mobs in Minecraft each have an internally programmed Drop Rate Table that provides the probability that specific items will drop from defeated Mobs. In this Lesson we will use this game mechanic, and the fun element of defeating monsters to explore the concepts of Data and Data Sets.


  1. Read this Wikipedia page on Data Sets: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_set
  2. Read this lesson outline on Introduction to Data and Data Sets in Minecraft: https://education.minecraft.net/wp-content/uploads/DangerousDataSetsLessonPlanPDF.pdf
  3. Complete the lesson:
    1. Draw a table on paper with the creature type killed as the horizontal rows and columns for count encountered/killed and separate columns for each item dropped (rotten flesh, gunpowder, bows & arrows).
    2. Play Minecraft for 10 minutes in the Night Cycle in a Survival Infinite World Normal Difficulty.
    3. Then, plot your data by building in game Graphs, or explore various other ways to showcase the data collected. Students should be included in the process of discussing what common and unique ways data can be showcased. Perhaps one of the students can find a very unique way to showcase data using Minecraft.

2/18: Could you go for a month without the Internet?

I do not think I would be able to go for a month without the internet. During quarantine, I have made many friends that I communicate with via Discord, an online chat application. I like my friends on the internet. Luckily, a lot of the games I play on my computer don’t use internet, so I could play those.

I also couldn’t watch YouTube videos, which I like to do in my free time. But I would probably not mind, since I could still play my offline games. I could also play games on my mobile gaming devices such as my 3DS or my iPad, but I prefer games that I play on the computer since they are easier to control and I can play my favorite game style, indie games, which are made by independent people or companies. That is why I would not want to go without internet.
