What is Chaos Theory?
By Kaydn, Keeshan, Adrian and Cody

What is the chaos theory you ask. Let’s start at the beginning. It all started when a man named Edward Lorenz created a weather model on his computer. People started to look in to his theory later on 1960. The seven parts of which they study are mathematics, meteorology, sociology, physics, engineering, economics, biology and philosophy. Chaotic behaviors can be observed in natural systems such as the migratory patterns of a bird’s flight or the way a hurricanes forms. It is behaviours that appear to be unpredictable are predictable.

Who Is The Elephant Man?
Caden, Zach, Caoimhe and Hunter

His full name is Joseph Carey Merrick. He was born on August 5th, 1882, in Leicester, United Kingdom. He died on April 11th, 1890, White Chapel, United Kingdom. It is believed that he had a couple of degenerative diseases. He developed large lips, big forehead and lumps on his face and back.  People thought it was from an accident his mom had before he was born. She was trampled by an elephant. That’s why people believe that is how he looked the way he looks. But he got it from a disease. He went to a school and he still had a close relationship with his mother, but she died when he was 11. His mother died from bronchial pneumonia. He said: I am not an elephant! , I am not an animal!  I am a human being! I am a man! People make fun of him for what he looks like, not based on who he really is. He wore a bag over his head. He did that because he did not want to be made fun of.
The next year his father remarried. He left his home when he left school. He made a poem about his self that goes like this:
Tis True my form is odd,
but blaming is blaming god,
can I create myself anew,
I would not fail I pleasing you.
And
If I could reach from pole to pole,
or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul

How Do Movies Develop?
 By Jaylah, Olivia, Rheya, Jaycee

The first movie camera was made in England.  A man named Louis Prince in 1888 made it.  The first one to come out for sale was in 1867. Filming movies began right away but grew in the 1890’s. The earliest movies were made by strips of pictures captured on camera.  Movies can take up to a year or more to make! That’s a long time! William Kennedy Laurie Dickson took credit for making the first movie. The First motion picture camera made was made by Thomas Alva Edison and he named it the Kinetograph in 1889. In France, Auguste and Louis Lumiere invented cinematograph to project a movie on screen. 1905 was when the first movie theatre was made in Pittsburghrg. Today while making movies, they edit on computers and make the characters more realistic and 3D. Cinematograph made motion pictures (movies) more popular.  These are things people do and use to make a successful movie:
-         Actors
-         Storylines
-         Camera
-         Screenplay
-         Editing
-         Expand your story as you go along
-         Have a place that suits the movie to film
The very first Disney full length movie was snow white and the seven dwarfs. It first came out in a theatre… that is when it became popular and now it is a classic.
