     The Colombian Exchange was good, and bad at the same time. It had it strengths and its weaknesses, but in the end in my opinion I believe it was a good change. I believe that the positive thing was that they were getting many great new resources. By "they" I mean Europe, America, Africa, etc. They also had a great new variety of animals. This helped them a lot. 
     The negative effects were all the slaves, and the diseases. Just like the Black Death. It wasn't really like the Black Death, but some parts were. For example they had rats on the ships. As a result these rats brought in many sickness to the countries. This all happened on the ships, when they were bringing goods.

     Well, although the zoo was exhausting, there was station I did like. That was the Dino Dig. I'm not sure if that's what it's called, but I think that's close enough. Well, this was my favorite station, because we got to just sit, and dig up a dinosaur bone! It was really deep and long! We dug up the spine it took long, but we did it at the end. This was my first time at the zoo, and I think that station was the best.
     The other stations were cool as well, I just liked this one better. They were all different. Like for example there was a monkey station, a poop station  and so on. I believe they were all fun but the one that I thought was kinda weird was the poop one. I don't think that's the name, but it was gross. The poop was all dry and we still had to guess what animal pooped it. It was a great trip t

     The Aztec and the Inca had a similar fall, but what was it? Well, the Aztec got defeated by a guy that they thought was their God in a different version. There God was Quetzalcoatl. He had died, and the Aztec's believed that Cortes was him in a different form. They believed it was their God, because the two were both very similar. But, let me tell you that the Aztec's were wrong. Cortes actually got together with a different empire so that they could defeat the Aztec's they tried again but they failed, then they tired again and they finally defeated them.
     The Inca on the other hand was a bit similar. They were to defeated by the Spanish. The only difference was that the Inca's didn't believe that Cortes was their God. They also didn't treat him really good, and welcomed like the way the Maya's did.

     Well, I cannot believe it's almost the end of the school year! I can't wait to be an 8th grader next year it's going to be so fun! I'm also going to get more involved in school, because I have learned that joining a club can be actually pretty cool! I have so many great memories, some are good, and some are bad. But, most of them are pretty good. Hopefully the new incoming 7th graders will love Computech just as much as I did! I'm also going to be a WEB leader, because it seems pretty fun!
     Well, my favorite memory was getting to meet new friends, and new teachers. Yes, it was a hard time sometimes, but oh well we just had to keep going. I'm going to miss being a 7th grader, and I don't even want to think of being a Freshman  That just means many people will leave the school, and go to a different high school! But, not me I will always be a tiger because you know what they say, "Once a tiger always a tiger!"

     The Maya's were some very interesting people. They also created many great things that helped everyone else, and some of the stuff that they invented we still use today! It's pretty amazing, because the creations that they made are at least a billion years old.
     For example the Maya;s created many things, but the two that we use more today is the calender, and the number zero. They did create a writing system, and other things, but we don't use those as much as we use the calender and the number zero. So remember, next time when you look at your calender or the number zero always remember that the Maya created
