Beautiful Views- Song

Our song is about Northern Israel and about all the beautiful places that it has in it. We named the song Beautiful Views because of all the beautiful views in Northern Israel.


הצפון היא מקום גדול בּישראל,

גר שם אנשים טובּים בּיותר,

יש שם טבּריה, חיפּה, כנרת ואטליט

ובים התיכון יש נופים יפים.  

Verse 1:

בטבריה יש שוק גדול

יש שם הרבה אוכל טוב

עם גובה של 210 מטר מתחת לפני הים, 

טבריה היא הכי נמוכה. 

 Verse 2:


בחיפה יש מלא תרבויות,

יש דרוזים, מוסלמים, נוצרים, ויהודים

וכולם חיים ביחד עם הרבה שלום.


הצפון היא מקום גדול בּישראל,

גר שם אנשים טובּים בּיותר,

יש שם טבּריה, חיפּה, כנרת ועתלית

ובים התיכון יש נופים יפים.  


Verse 3:

בכנרת יש רק מים מתוקים,

ואפשר גם לדוג שם דגים,

Verse 4

עתלית זה מקום ליד חיפה

ויש שם המון אנשים מהצבא.

עם ים בן 8,000, עתלית היא ממש מגניבה.



הצפון היא מקום גדול בּישראל,

גר שם אנשים טובּים בּיותר,

יש שם טבּריה, חיפּה, כנרת ואטליט

ובים התיכון יש נופים יפים.  

We also AI generated a song for the background of our lyrics:

Innovation Day – Reflection

This year for Innovation day we were challenged to create a sled. We used the design thinking process in order to create our sled, “The PVC Plower”. During this Project me and my partner worked extremely hard at home and at school. At school we worked extremely hard on creating the sled itself and at home we worked the board and script. This positively helped our group because we had a great board and speech. This is something important that I want to take to high school. One thing that we did that affected our project negatively was the fact that we were not creative enough. I think we put great effort into our project but the idea wasn’t great so it wasn’t the best sled. My creativity is something that I need to work on for high school and in my life. My biggest challenge was problem solving. We had a problem with the legs of our sled and it was very challenging to keep trying and not giving up. This is why problem solving was one of my biggest challenges. During this project I was very surprised how hard it was to build an actual sled. I didn’t realize how hard it actually was to build a real world object using screws and wood. In all, I really enjoyed having the opportunity to build things with my hands, and the opportunity to challenge myself by solving the problems with our sleds legs and this is something that I might want to study later in life or in high school.

The Salinas Estate

In English class we were assigned a group project where we needed to create a website for a Ranch in Salinas Valley, California. It needs to be based in Salinas Valley because that is where the story we are reading in English class is located.  The story is called “Of Mice And Men”. In our group we thought of the name “The Salinas Estate“. Our website is a modern take on an old ranch. We wrote about the food they eat, what they can do, their work, and lots of information specific to our ranch. I would love for you to check out our website using the link above.

The 5373 Kilometer Legend

How different would the Marathon of Hope be if Terry could advertise his run? This week in English class we were assigned a social media campaign project about Terry Fox. Me and Superstar 31 created a slides presentation that shows different ways Terry could have advertised his run. We used many different tricks to try and capture the audiences attention like comedy and facts. One example of what we did is funny Tiktok posts about Terry Fox. Hopefully people learned from our posts and remembered the greatest Canadian legend who ran 5373 kilometers.

החוק שלי

למדנו על הכנסת וזה החוק שלי:

צריכה להיות לנו בחירה לעשות הפסקה בחדר הכושר

 אני חושב שזה חשוב מאוד כי

לפעמים זה ממש חם בחוץ והייתי רוצה להישאר בפנים.

Innovation Day 2022

Starting about a month ago, me and my class began learning a new subject. This subject was Electricity. Before we began learning about wires and electricity we learned how to do the scientific method. After we did the scientific method I was really surprised to realize that it came in very handy to create my game and my final project. During this project, I was extremely challenged, as some of the judges saw I am not the best at creating an MLA Cited Bibliography. During the topic of Electricity, I worked hard to try and get a lot of research and it paid off. I also really enjoyed creating circuits and using wires. Even before the project I was excited to use wires. Using wires taught me how to persevere because even though the circuit sometimes got messed up, I persevered and tried again. During this project I learned a ton, I learned how to persevere, I learned how to use wires, and last but not least I learned how to do the scientific method.
