Why Can’t Kids Vote?
Emily, Keely, Kiera and Alison
Kids can’t vote because if were to vote in gr.2 and they haven’t learned anything about government yet, they would not know who they are voting for or what the person is going to be like if they win. In Austria you have to be 16 years old to vote. In japan you have to be 20 years old to vote. In Oshawa, at 18 years old you legally become an adult and you are allowed to vote. Politicians think kids are not important enough to vote before the age of 18. Adults think kids aren’t smart enough to vote before they legally become an adult. Some kids are not mature enough to vote. Just because some kids aren’t mature enough to vote, it doesn’t mean other kids are not mature. We looked on a debate voting website about whether kids should vote or not, and a lot of other people did agree kids should vote. The results of the vote was 65% yes and 35% no. At one point in life women were not allowed to vote like children aren’t allowed to vote today. Women were not allowed to vote until the early 19 hundreds. Women were not allowed to vote until the early 19 hundreds because, men thought women weren’t important enough to make such a big decision, much like how kids aren’t allowed to vote because adults don’t think they are that important.

By: Grace& Heaven
Living things need water, food & air to survive. It is essential to the process which produces energy to keep us alive Energy can’t be made without a source, that source is the food we eat The food is filled with different chemicals that when they break down , they turn into energy Water takes place in breaking down nutrients. Without water the cells break down and experience severe damage. Air is important because it has oxygen, which is a component of cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is the process where living things obtain energy food contains nutrients that we need the nutrients replace old cells we need food just like a car needs gas, we can’t run without it. All cells need oxygen, they are making carbon dioxide, your blood carries your oxygen from the lungs to all the cells and it takes back all the carbon dioxide. breathing in & out air brings in oxygen and takes out carbon dioxide 60% of the human body is water each day your body must congest up to 2.4 litres of water , through liquids and foods We get clean water from lakes. Oxygen is air we breathe when hungry we eat food Water quenches thirst Mammals need water to survive a humans body is 60% water our brains are made out of 70% water and your lungs are 90% water.
