Nobel Peace Laureate, Muslim and human rights activist Dr Shirin Ebadi has spoken out against undemocratic Islamic countries justifying "oppressive acts" in the name of Islam. Speaking at the Earth Dialogues 2006 conference in Brisbane, Dr Ebadi said her native Iran as well as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Yemen "among others" were guilty of human rights violations. "In these countries, Islamic rulers want to solve 21st century issues with laws belonging to 14 centuries ago," she said. "Their views of human rights are exactly the same as it was 1400 years ago."

1. I believed when I was little that cats could fly when you looked away. I've been trying since I was 5 until I was 7.

2. My cousin said that if you are scared of ghost don't think about it or not the ghost will come.

3. I also used to believed that cows could make toys so when I was in preeschool i keep begging my dad to buy a cow.

What I believed When I was Little!

In my firts unit! reflection

Central Idea=
The human body is designed for movement in work and play and cam be affacted by vanerty of things.


In this unit I was being an Inquirer because I like to ask many questions about the skeletal system and the muscular system. I also think that I'm knowledgeable because I found many Information about the stomach and I shared my research in the group presentation!


My favorite activities were, dissecting the chiken wing because me and my partner Jesslyn to pull the skin with the knive and, find the muscle, ligements and the fat.The time when I checked the BMI was also my favorite activity because we measured our height, weight and our BMI. My third favorite activity was listening to the doctor about bone fractures and the health center tools.



What is God?

What I beilieve
I beilive that God is the one who raised me when I was a baby until now. And he's the one guides me through all my troubles. God always in my heart. I communicate to God by praying and talking inside my heart. I beilive in God because God created me, he save me from the bad people. God is the ruler of my soul and I praise him. God is looking down from the heaven to the erath. He's my Savior and I beilive him. He is arround me and beside me. He will be near me and in Heaven and earth.
