Kenna in the West #2

 Hey people!! It's me again and I've got some things to say! I'm going to The Gold Rush in California, Las Angeles, Alcatraz Island, the Pacific Ocean, and others. I chose these places because I've read two books on Alcatraz, you might recognize the titles."Al Capone Does My Shirts" and "Al Capone Shines My Shoes". I'm going to the Pacific Ocean because it's my favorite ocean because it's so big. I'm going to the Gold Rush because I think it's really cool that there actually was gold in California! I would recommend Yellowstone State Park,Alcatraz Island, The Gold Rush, and the Pacific Ocean. I for sure would go back and I can't wait to go to many other places!!

Kenna in the West

Hey this is Kenna once again! Here's my latest journal!!   I want to learn even MORE about The Gold Rush!! I'm going to California with Katie Salay! We are going to have so much fun on this trip! I already know that California became a state because of The Gold Rush! Then after The Gold Rush, there were more gold and silver rushes.  Were there Native Americans in The Gold Rush?? When exactly did The Gold Rush end? I want to go to on the places where the Gold Rush was. I also want to go to Yellowstone State Park, and this summer I'm actually going!! I really like going to different places on this road trip!! Who has the same feelings?? Are there any mountains in the West?? Bye!

Kenna's Journey

 Hey! This is Kenna and I want to tell you about where I'm going on my road trip! First, I need to tell you I am driving by myself in a Mustang convertible! Anyway, my first stop is Fort Dearborn! Fort Dearborn was abandoned during the War of 1812. It was rebuilt after it was burned to the ground. My next stop is the Mississippi River. The famous river is the second longest river next to the Missouri. The Mississippi is 2,348 miles long! Then, I'm going to Brown County State Park, Indiana! Brown County is Indiana's favorite playground. It is also Indiana's largest state park! Then I'm going to Door County! I've been there many times before and it is amazing! Door County had Scandinavian and other ethnic settlers. It also has 300 miles of shoreline! My last stop is Mt.Rushmore! Mt.Rushmore took 14 years to carve! The most interesting fact is that Borglum,the carver, meant to go down to the presidents' waists, but died and no more work was done! Thanks for reading!

Kenna's first entry

Hey! I already know that the Midwest is mostly plains and farms. I also know that it's very grassy and there are rivers and lakes all around. I know that there is a lot of rich soil that's good for farming. I'm so excited to do this project! Who else does? I want to find out if there is volcanoes around the Midwest. I also want to know if any old folktales were made up in the Midwest. I think that when we go to the Southeast we should all go to the Grand Canyon! I've been there before and it is so amazing! I'm going to Yellowstone and I really want to find out more about Yellowstone! I'm really joyous were going on a road trip because I'm a HUGE Packer fan!!
